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.
Howay The Lads!!
