City Don’t Play As A Team – But Have Fantastic Players


The current Newcastle captain in Colo’s absence – Yohan Cabaye – both courageously and sensibly admitted that he had struggled with depression last summer after the European Championships, and it was also revealed yesterday that Alan Pardew had helped Yohan get through his difficult times.

Yohan Cabaye – could be Newcastle’s best player

he stand-in Newcastle captain both courageously and sensibly admitted that he had struggled with depression last summer after the European Championships, and it was also revealed yesterday that Alan Pardew had helped Yohan get through his stressful times.

We know some Newcastle fans don’t rate Alan Pardew, but here’s another case where his man management has been of the highest caliber – and our own hope is that he becomes more successful than he’s ever been at Newcastle in the next few seasons current Newcastle had to say about Manchester City in The Sun:

“City have fantastic players but, unfortunately for them, they don’t think and play as a team – it’s not the same as United.” “So maybe that’s the difference.” “City are still a fantastic team, but they are a team of individuals.”

“The 15 points is a big difference with United is going to be more difficult than last season, when they had eight points to make up. I think it’s impossible because if United win three games, they win the title.”

We have a number of players out tomorrow – but Alan Pardew can still play a strong team against the reigning Premier League Champions, and with Yohan in the side, and Newcastle wanting to generate some momentum before our two games with Benfica – then anything is possible.

Fact.

Howay The Lads!!

    It’s all mind games to annoy City. They know that they’ve underperformed and Cabaye is pointing this out to try and give us more of a chance.

    I think we should see how he does in pre season, if he can still improve by playing in the championship, then send him on loan until January then am certain he’ll definitly be ready for the premier

    Part exchange Ferguson for Redmond. Only kidding , good to see Ferguson’s cultured left foot being put to good use. Not before time and illustrating the benefit of our under 21’s getting experience at a higher level. Impressed with lee Clark’s side and his attacking formation they have really outclassed a PL prospect side. And no I am not making a case for Pardew to be replaced. But it’s nice to see our own do well.

    @nufc786

    Yeah, I think Ameobi needs more game time in the championship, to gain the confidence that he much needs.

    Bolasie has already played in the championship for a couple of seasons now, I think he would be a good buy, and he was born in France!! 😉

    —————–Elliot—————-
    Simpson–S.Taylor–M’Bwia–Anita
    ————Cabaye–Perch———-
    Marveaux—–Sissoko——Gouffran
    —————-Cisse—————-

    Guti may start though but I would prefer if him and Obertan came on as subs around the 70th…Obertans been getting a lot of slack and deservedly so but his speed off the bench can still change games so I still like him as an impact sub for one of the wingers.

    Funnily enough Lee Clark is not that popular with the Birmingham fans but I suppose they did have a slow start in the first half of the season.
    I noticed some ex mags on his coaching staff Terry Mac & Steve Watson.

    Cheers for that Hatem shake, you’re right about the curve, it gets right inside the post. Imagine having him and Cabaye over our free kicks. He’s also meant to be decent on corners, which is something that Cabaye isn’t good at, somehow…

    If fergie can build up a bit of muscle, and practise more on his right foot, then i think he will be a first team regular by the age of 23-24.

    Just for the fact that he’s a bit too slender and a bit predictable and people don’t expect him to cut in on his right 🙂

    I think marveaux has the best corner out of our fit players at the minute, by far.
