Yohan Cabaye Injures Groin Again – Update


Yohan Cabaye will be assessed today to see if he if he is fit enough to take on Wigan Athletic on Sunday afternoon, after he came off in the first half last night with some groin problem.

Yohan Cabaye – another groin injury?

The French International  had a double operation on his groin in late November, and we were hoping that was the end of the problems with his groin – but Yohan has suffered another groin injury last night.

Cabaye will be assessed today, but it’s hard to think he would be fit enough to play at Wigan on Sunday.

This is what Yohan had to say to the local press today:

“It was my groin, but not the same area. It felt tight. I don’t think it’s too bad, but we’ll see tomorrow.” “I had surgery three or four months ago, and I want to be fit every day. We’ve played a lot of games, and maybe that is why.

“Before the game I was feeling well. I don’t think it’s a big injury.” “I watched the game from the dressing room when I went off, and then on the bench in the second half.”  “It was hard, but I was happy at the end.”

“We went through, and the atmosphere was fantastic as well.” “For the team and for me, the night was great.”  “It was another assist for Sylvain. He deserves it.” “Fortunately for us, we scored in extra time.”

“It would be hard to play against Wigan – who are fighting against relegation like us – after playing extra time. For us, everything was perfect.”

It looks like his groin was just feeling tight, and it wouldn’t be the first time Yohan has come out of a game, and not sustained too much damage by realizing he could pick up a more serious injury if he played on.

But it does seem that the groin is a problem area  for the French International, and maybe another specialist needs to find out what’s happening.

We’d be very surprised if Yohan is risked against Wigan this Sunday, because he simply may have played too many games recently.

And we have Anita, Marveaux and Jonas who can  play in his place on Sunday, and the Argentine played well when he replaced the Newcastle captain last night.

Let’s hope it’s nothing serious with Yohan – and we may get to know his condition later today

    Well marv can drop straight into the centre for yohan, plus hopefully ben arfa will be back + gouffran so we should have plenty of creativity for wigan.

    Hopefully it won’t keep him out too long and we can have him back soon.

    right, after watching all the games, avoid Benfica and Spurs and i think we should be alright. I want Basel or Lazio.

    I want lazio or benfica….both are big teams and we have to beat a good side to win it so might as well do it now.

    They will feel like real european ties.

    For all spurs look good we gave them aright go at white hart lane, losing gouff was the difference I feel.

    Also we beat them at home so every chance to progress against them.

    Any team with easy access, by air, would be OK. A one night trip would do nicely.

    After last night, we know there are no easy games, just some a bit more difficult than others. I wouldn’t mind trying to get to a 1/4 final game before going to the final in Amsterdam. Bring it on

    Did somebody yesterday say we would win 6-2, we were lucky , seconds away from extra time. So please use your head as well as your heart when predicting scores.

    http://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/anzhi-chief-roberto-carlos-confident-seeing-newcastle-3852821

    Anzhi chief Roberto Carlos is convinced they’ll be too strong for Europa League opponents Newcastle United.

    The Brazilian is confident seeing off the Toon tomorrow.

    “We have a friendly benevolent spirit and are not the type of team to lose.

    “When the team has a coach like Hiddink, there is always something good awaiting for us.

    “I am sure about this every time we play.”

    Wonder if mr confident has said anything since

    From the other thread. I have a friend similar to yours. He never goes to the match but knows everything about the Toon.

    I think its cos he played a clubbing right back for a Sunday pub team that gives him the superior knowledge!! 😀

    The last time the toon kept 4 consecutive clean sheets was in 1969. An omen??

    Also in 1969 we were a mid table side. We were never favourites to win it.

    Hope Newcastle can avoid an English team and not get drawn against Lazio, would be risky for fans. Basel would be nice. But nobody petrifies me…

    They did indeed Ibiza my friend, I am forever indebted to your omniscient and optimistic personality!

    …It wasn’t without it’s worries mind. I loved Cisse’s celebration, reminded me of ketspia so I checked the blog and noticed tads had mentioned it whilst kets was about. Brilliant.

    I think thats a good point but on the flipside of that, you could argue we are kind of used to it now after the past 2 legs. I wouldnt mind rubin despite the travel! A lesser Anzhi perhaps?

    Was a tight game, bordering on frustrating at times…but we did get the win so on we go!

    Really pleased for Cisse.

    took my lass at the game last night and she loved it, she couldn’t believe the atmosphere even though i told her it wasn’t a full ground, it was epic to cisse score right infront of me last night.

    Carrying… Yeah there is that, rubin are probably the easiest team left we could draw. 2 wins on the back of long trips now that i think about it, wouldn’t be a disaster by any means.

    Want to avoid Lazio though, probably the team to beat plus really don’t want racist italians marring the game.
