Report That PSG To Make €20M Offer For Cabaye


There are reports in France that French Champions PSG are readying a £17M (€20M) offer for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who missed the second game of the season for Newcastle today – and we assume Newcastle will dock his wages for missing the first two games of the season – or fine him – or both.

Yohan Cabaye – missing again today

The report is that PSG manager Laurent Blanc attended a PSG board meeting last week, and tried to persuade the club to put in a big enough bid to tempt Newcastle United to part with their star French International play-maker.

This is in conflict with reports yesterday that PSG had pulled out of the race with Arsenal to sign Cabaye, and that their summer transfer business was complete.

Arsenal will hardly be willing to raise their £12M bid by much, and Mike Ashley will hold out for a full £20M – and we think that’s exactly what the Newcastle owner should do.

And if no club comes in with that offer – then Yohan stays with Newcastle – whether he likes that or not – and we’d like to see Newcastle get a little bit tougher with this player.

It’s hard to know if this latest news has any truth to it – but the Yohan Cabaye affair, and his apparent bizarre and selfish refusal to play for Newcastle has only had a detrimental effect on Newcastle’s start to this Premier League season.

Newcastle need to tell the fans exactly what’s going on with Yohan Cabaye, and why he hasn’t been playing for the team.

Cabaye has progressed from a decent player to be a world-class French International since he joined Newcastle two years ago – and maybe he should remember that, and pay the club some respect by playing for the team that pays him big money to play.

    If its 17 million, 20, or even 25 don’t think he is worth that and it the end of the day Newcastle won’t see a penny of it fat boy will take the lot.

    If he goes I’m not worried. Obviously prefer to keep him.

    Marv can play the central attacking role as can HBA. Even vukic could.

    I know transfers are better early but if our plan is to wait to get the best deal I can live with it, as long as they are in by the end of te window. Minimum 2 more needed, really 4, 5 if cabaye leaves.

    All I want for Christmas is… Ashley’s chopper to have two defective parts until the fat prick flying around. Too aggressive? Good.

    what’s the point of keeping an unhappy player for a few dollars more? He gets depressed as it is. 17M is fair enough or he will lose value like Tiote and Benny have.

    The quicker Cabaye f..ks off the better. FFS PARDEW, put Santon at RB and Dummett at LB. Its not hard. Debuchy is a cart horse.

    Got done a couple times but wingers do beat defenders at times. If they didn’t football would be dull.

    Even if we bought 3 more good players, we will not see any improvement in results.
    I don’t think we can even win aginst team like Hull, Hellas Verona, Catania, etc. Teams with a lot less quality than ours.

    No idea. He did once t home to Wigan last year and be looked good. Might try it, you never know. Seemed to allow HBA and Marv to drift central a lot today.

    A few home truths that I feel I have to re-iterate for some of the more stupid fan here:

    1. Carr is overrated.
    2. Debuchy is slow. I said this on day one and the muppets who backed our slow purchase of him slagged me off
    3. Anita may be small, but players from Ajax are goo. Give him a chance
    4. Will people stop overrating Marveaux please. He lacks energy.
    5. 442 can work fine with the right players. What is far more important is energy desire and skill. Why do so many goons on here spend tine creating 3-2-3-2 etc etc formations . Are ye just bored?

    What a load of arse….

    Spot on Dragon. It’s all about asset stripping now. He’s decided we can’t compete in the Premiership & just wants to get as much money back as he can before the fire sale. Like previous occasions no replacement will be lined up & the usual quote will come out : We tried hard to bring suitable players in but failed to do so. Loan players at best to make up the numbers.

    I don’t think Carr is overrated. He works very well and gets a lot of players.

    If your told to scout players available at a low price, who ask for low wages what do you think that gets? Average players.

    He’s also only one man, can’t scout the whole world alone. Needs a bigger team around him I feel.

    Until you do something about fat boy it will never get better. Fat boy will never buy players we want . So what’s the point of going on about who we should get.

    CABAYE should be sacked and he should be stopped from signing for other clubs. He is being paid to play Football. He should be playing. While the fans suffer, he refuses to play getting a nice pay check ad getting his move in the end. WHAT a spoilt brat.

    I would take £17m+ for him if he doesn’t want to play, I have Anita can play that deep lying play maker role and Moussa has the box to box position on lock. As poor as the result may seem today at least there were some positives.

    Our defence looked solid with Colo, Mbwia and Santon all doing well, not convinced with Debuchy but a clean sheet none the less.

    Anita looked the classy little CM we all know he can be, and Moussa put in a solid shift. Samy looked good as well, performed better than Marveux who was very quiet. Ben Arfa again excited with his quick direct dribbling, but the passing was not sharp and the shooting was way off.

    Our shooting was atrocious, at this level you only get a couple of clear cut chances a game and unfortunately we missed the one that came (Gouffran)! We need a quality striker in the team as I don’t know what has happened to Cisse and we all know Shola.

    Howay man JFK do something!!

    Hugotoon. Regretablly he’s right! We can’t even compete with Cardiff, Swansea, Norwich, Fulham, West Ham & maybe Hull & Palace. Bony went to Swansea, Wolfswinkel to Norwich. Looks like JFK got Willian mixed up with Will I Am as we were never in with Chelsea at £32M.
    The whole set up is a farce!

    Ah right. Still three strikers (although one shola) isn’t too much different to most sides except the top 2 clubs.

    Chelsea have 3, spurs had only 2 last year, arsenal have giroud only (podolski and Walcott can play there too I guess but used wide)….so not like we are miles off others .

    Its the Pardew excuse train, chooo…..choooo….

    Will it be:

    number 1 – It was the weather
    number 2 – It was Cabaye’s fault
    number 3 – we was still tired from Europe last year

    Take you’re pick, they are all bullsh*t .
