Pardew – He’s A Fabulous Player And Important To Us

3:08 pm, Thursday, September 19th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 6 Comments

It seems that the final shoe to drop in the Yohan Cabaye affair this summer has now happened, and the Newcastle manager has said today that Yohan Cabaye has been disciplined for his actions of refusing to play for Newcastle in the first two league games, and hopefully the affair can now be out behind us, and Yohan can start playing at his very best again for the club.

Yohan Cabaye – has been disciplined

Alan Pardew revealed today that the French International had been disciplined:

“He has been disciplined for his actions.” “He has accepted that in good faith.” “We can move on now.” “It would be nice if the fans give him the support he now deserves.”

“I know he is going to have a great season. Trust me, he’s a fabulous player. He’s very important to us.” “I don’t want to comment any further,” 

And when something bad like this happens, Yohan Cabaye has an opportunity to make a good come-back from his mistake – and we hope he does just that, by playing at his very best and giving his all for the club, which is what he says he will do.

We’re sure Yohan missing from the first game at the Etihad Stadium had a negative impact on the team, but that’s water under the Tyne Bridge now, and we really hope the fans on Saturday will let Yohan know that all is forgiven – it’s very important that we put this affair behind us, as Alan Pardew says.

But Yohan must now pay the club back for what he did, and from what Alan Pardew says, that’s all the Frenchman wants to do – and that’s good.

A win against Hull City is what we want to see,  and then we could even be in the top six in the Premier League on Saturday night – which we never were last season – so things could be looking up for Newcastle.

    IF he’e been disciplined and has apologised to the fans then we should just let it pass and get on with the season.
    He hasn’t had one of his crackin games yet. Hope he has a blinder on Sat.

    Some of us were convinced Ashley had ordered that he be dropped, and it does seem as though we were wrong. If this is a fine for refusing to play, which is not quite what the club is saying, fair enough, Cabaye has thrown his toys out of the pram and is being punished for it. The central issue, though, is that until Cabaye is sold, or someone equally valuable, such as Krul, we won’t be able to buy anyone. If we do, we go into the red. Or was that all rubbish and lies? How can anyone be confident about our club, when we are being spun cobblers all the time?

    Well that rubbish is out of the way let’s concentrate on the football now and getting our goal difference sorted by sticking a few past Hull on Saturday. It’s been a while since we gave another team a good hiding let’s do it against Bruce’s Hull.

    Let’s hope he starts to put in some consistently good performances now. People are too quick to blame the management for everything.
    However, events have shown that we will need to sell, at an inflated price, to fund additions to our club. That is the way Ashley has shown he operates. Enough of that depressing talk.
    Let’s hope for another uplifting display against Hull Tigers!

    @Wiz. Well done in holding your hands up and admitting you were wrong. I wonder how many more of the conspiracy theorists (you all know who you are) will do likewise.
