The Mindset Of Cabaye Is Such We Have To Be On Guard


Newcastle were struggling enough in pre-season, than to also have Yohan Cabaye become difficult once Arsenal lodged that bid for him just over a week ago, but that’s what’s happened, and now the next seven days is all going to be about Yohan Cabaye, who has decided he doesn’t want to play for Newcastle again, as he tries to force a move away from the club that   made him into a world class midfielder, since he was signed over two years ago from Lille.

Yohan Cabaye – his mindset is a problem

And if Yohan Cabaye does go in the next seven days,  it’s hard to know who will replace him.

Alan Pardew is under some pressure now, and this is what he said about the Cabaye situation today:

“We need to resolve it,” “If he goes, good luck to him.” “We need to replace him with somebody as good – we’re on the case with that. We have to be armed – you’ve got to be armed.

“You can’t say he’s definitely going to stay. So the mindset of the player is such that we need to be on guard.”

Newcastle have been linked earlier in the summer with James McCarthy of Wigan, but as usually happens with Newcastle these days,  his price tag of £15M could be a problem, even if we get £20M for Cabaye.

Newcastle like to get super big fees for the players who are leaving,  but we tend to be rather frugal when bidding for players,  and that’s cost us dearly over these last two summer transfer windows.

Newcastle have also been linked with Yoann Gourcuff of Lyon, and the 27 year-old has been capped 29 times by France, and would be an excellent buy.

And maybe if Newcastle went after him, they could do a double deal with Lyon for Yoann and Bafe Gomis, and the French club certainly need the money, and could be willing to give Newcastle a decent deal on the two players – we suppose that could be a possibility.

Newcastle are said to be drawing up a list of players who could replace Yohan Cabaye, but the more this thing drags on this week, the more chance Newcastle could be left high and dry and not have time to replace Cabaye.

That’s what happened with Andy Carroll in January, 2011, and it seems Newcastle don’t learn from their mistakes, and because of that,  history tends to repeat itself, as it did in January, when we failed to replace Demba Ba and we were left short of strikers.

That’s the big worry in the next seven days, that  Yohan leaves and we are left high and dry – yet again.

    Pards has his flaws but a lot of this must be laid at the door of MA.

    we’ve needed a striker since Ba left and we’ve yet to replace him. That is simply down to paying for one. Good ones don’t come cheap. Cisse can’t play with a strong powerful foil.

    It’s a disgrace that we’ve had all window to bring in a striker (to say nothing of last summer when we had the lure of Europa)

    Pards has to put up with so much crap of this regime and now Cabaye is being sold to the highest bidder – the creative heart of our team.

    I for one have sympathy with pardew. No one on this blog could put up with that. We have 60m tv revenue and no investment.

    A few days to prove themselves have MA and JK. If not there will be hell to pay.

    Has Cabaye put in a transfer request or is he only trying to force his way out of the club without losing his ‘loyalty’ bonus?

    Spuggy I agree ash is the prob.
    Pards isn’t good enough for us but works with his hands tied … Trouble is he hasn’t got the balls ( publicly ) to do or say anything about it and comes out with his lame ass excuses for the regimes failings.

    If Cabaye refuses to play he should be fined 2 weeks wages. This should continue every time he refuses to play.

    The more I think about it the less I can blame him for wanting to leave this club. It’s highly unlikely the fans or anyone else will even bother trying to do anything about the poor management, low grade of football being played, the lack of signings, non-tactics, the rude & ignorant DOF, the greedy, socially inept owner and his disregard for the loyal fans…I could easily go on.

    Am I selling the club to YOU? I didn’t think so.

    I mentioned before on a previous thread that Ashley intended to take out 28 million each year until his loan was paid off. In other words ‘no money for players unless we sell or we’re going to get relegated’

    Tbh I don’t think ash cares if he plays he wants a transfer fee for him and if he were to get injured no transfer … Pards obv wants him to play tho. If it were me I’d fine him and tell arsenal to F off 18 mill and a transfer request or you’ll be in development squad.

    Can anyone translate from Pardew to English? We have to be armed – you’ve got to be armed.

    “You can’t say he’s definitely going to stay. So the mindset of the player is such that we need to be on guard.”
    I can never understand what he is talking about. Is it just me or is that gibberish? I could understand Kenny Dogleash and Ruud Gullit even when he was speaking Dutch better than I can decipher Pardewspeak.

    If Pardew goes (to Palace or not) who do you think will take charge? Seriously?

    Hiddink? Poyet?

    Wake up people. Anyone who doesnt believe JFK will take over is deluded.

    All these Pardew Out comments are ridiculous, if it happens at the end of the season we may get someone else but now the seasons started we wont get anyone other than Kinnear.

    Sell
    Cabaye 16 million
    Tiote 8 million
    Krul 12 million
    Collo 7 million
    Santon 9 million
    Arfa 14 million
    Sissoko 8 million

    Total 84 million
    Add to that the 40 million we’ll make this year
    Total 124 million.
    That would pay off Ashley’s loan

    If Ashley could do that, I think he would.

    JFK apparently said he’d be involved in the interview process.

    Question: JFK – What makes you suitable for the job?

    Answer: JFK – I know all about football and can speak to any manager in the world.

    JFK – Congratulations, you’ve got the job.

    Isn’t it ironic that when Ben Arfa had a paddy and went on strike at his French club and now Gomis many of our fans supported and encouraged them but when Cabaye does it he is the devil incarnate.

    Is it our fans not realizing that this is a tactic used by players who want to leave and that we have never experienced this before at our club?

    Apparently weve made a 7mil bid for andre ayew… looks like a canny winger like. Would rather get in for fischer of ajax anr matvaz of psv. Probably come for about 13-15mil for the pair and the wages would be considerably low. How come I can identify better and cheaper targets than the one our current dof can?

    To be fair I don’t think JFK is any worse than Pardew when it comes to management – not saying he’s a step up, but I really don’t see it as a step down but I’m not sure you can take a step down from Pardew!

    GeordieMark,
    Poyet can work on a shoe string?? He had one of the largest budgets in the respective league since taking over….

    Beardsley is most likely to be next manager, has been steadily moving up the ranks and is very close with Ashley.

    By many landmarks, last season was among the worst in Newcastle United history. Only 2 away wins which equalled our 2nd worst ever away tally, just beating the 1 recorded in 1894-5, the joint worst home losing margin against Sunderland since 1908 and the joint worst home defeat in over 100 years, against Liverpool.

    Pardew was subject to some criticism through the season, not least from captian Colo over his long ball style, echoed by Ba who left for Chelsea and Cabaye.

    Summer provided more challenges for Pards. The first was keeping his mouth shut whilst everything changed in the club`s hierarchy. His guardian angel, Llambias, walked on the appointment of Joe Kinnear as Director of Football. Transfer activity seems to have become a thing of the past, as least inward.

    His 99th game was a baptism of fire against title challengers Manchester City. His 100th was against one of his former clubs, managed by Newcastle reject Sam Allardyce. No shots on target represents the nadir of his career here.

    Looking back over his results, his overall win ratio is a mediocre 35%, just behind legends such as McFaul and Jim Smith.

    The league record takes little beating. His home record shows a 48% win ratio, less than half of his games at fortress SJP resulting in a win. The last 11 games in total show 2 wins, 1 better than his last 11 when he was sacked at Charlton and 1 fewer than when he was sacked by West Ham.

    The current home run is arguably the worst in Newcastle history. No goals in over 6 hours of football with just 1 point. 3 defeats without scoring had never previously been done. 4 home games with just 1 point is a record.

    Those supporters who were sceptical about his appointment would seem to have been justified in their scepticism. Never has he recovered from poor form to mount a serious campaign.

    His record is uninspiring, his future seems dependent on hanging on to Premier league status, something which he lost at Charlton and came close to losing before the sack at West Ham.

    Yes, Pardew can claim to be the longest serving manager since Sir Bobby Robson. With such a low rate of home wins, with such a poor run of form, with no home goals to show since the start of April, with some of the worst records for over a century, how long has he got left?
