Newcastle Midfielder Should Be Available For Everton

As we suspected Yohan Cabaye will not be risked tonight in the Capital One Cup against Leeds United, but the hope is that he will be available for our next league game at Everton next Monday night.

Yohan Cabaye – slight groin strain

The Newcastle United midfielder has had a number of groin problems since he arrived at Newcastle over two years ago, but manager Pardew expects him to be fit for next week’s game:

“Yohan isn’t going to be involved,”  “We think he’ll be fine for Everton, but I do want to protect him a little bit.”

“He’s not had a lot of football, and the two games last week had a little bit of a toll on him. I am protecting him just a little bit.”

Yohan suffered a serious groin strain last season,  and in November he underwent a double groin surgery, which was through to be successful, but it could be he still has a weakness in that area.

But it will be very good if Yohan can play at Goodison Park next Monday night, because after the disaster of last Saturday, that’s shaping up to be an important game for the club.

Let us know how you think the game will go tonight, and of course there must be a result and the game will go to extra time and penalties if necessary.

    TDS, – Repost
    I’d not consider our start particularly decent. Below average. 3 home games against sides that have poorer teams on paper, and on grass then us should have been a minimum 9 points. Add Villa away, where a point was a realistic target, so I’d say 10 points good, 9 required 7 below average.

    Who is to say JK hasn’t caused problems, we don’t know what he has done behind the scenes, whether he was or wasn’t at fault during transfer negotiations, so I’m not sure how you can say that.

    Yes, yes, we managed to keep our big stars, that was our success last summer as well remember, and it nearly got us relegated.

    brought forward our business, I did laugh at that in the NUST report, we brought forward business to avoid inflated prices. We were told that Goofy and Sissoko were brought forward, they would have been free. Mbiwa and Debuchy were players we reportedly went after and didn’t get the summer before, so that only leaves Haidara and Mbabu, I doubt there prices would have been inflated.

    Bony and Osvaldo? Didn’t want either anyway, Redmond as a young English winger on the other hand would have been nice – £2 million rising to £3mill. Douglas on a free, not incredible, but a dominant centre half and an upgrade on Willo – Free.

    The stadium back to its proper name? Mainly cause no company would want to be associated with that name change and bad press generated would be my guess.

    I did find the bit in the report saying that where SD advertise would be empty without them, god knows how we managed to get any advertising in the ground prior to SD coming along. Other clubs executives must be incredible to manage to get people to pay for advertising!

    Not stopping long. Just thought I would inform those who are interested about what was discussed at last night’s Time4Change meeting.

    Met some really interesting people, with some great ideas for the club and some big plans in the upcoming weeks and months.

    Their first real idea is a protest march in the city centre on the morning of the Liverpool home game, which is 19th October. Discussions have been held with Spirit of Shankley and they are sending up thousands of Liverpool fans to march with us. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want Liverpool fans showing us up so we need as many Newcastle United fans to show up at this protest march, which will be a peaceful demonstration calling for change in Newcastle United. Spirit of Shankley are all too familiar with how to conduct these marches and have been a great source of support.

    Show your support for your club by joining in in this peaceful march towards St James’ Park before going into the game and roaring your team on to victory.

    Hope everyone can make it and I will give more information about the finite details closer to the time.

    Massive game tonight,as a victory will lift the lads , a defeat and the old colly wobbles will set in.
    We have some tough fixtures lie ahead.
    We will need the Toon Army to be in full voice tonight ,as no doubt 5- 6000 Yorkshire men will ascend on Tyneside tonight.
    All in all it is set up to be a Humdinger of a game .
    My prediction 4 2 to the Magpies .

    Well, that is a farcical beginning for the Time 4 Change group. If we have to call on fans groups of other clubs to march to make up numbers then it really isn’t worth bothering with. If the numbers aren’t sufficient then the group should admit defeat on that one, not call in others.

    Low Fell,
    I agree, should be a cracker of a match. Leeds will be well up for it, and their fans will be in fine voice as always. Hopefully Pards doesn’t make too many changes, this is by no means a straight forward match. The only thing I’m really expecting is goals, hopefully we get 1 or 2 more than them!

    What the fook does this march have to do with Liverpool fans?! I reckon that’s just begging for trouble.

    What’s the message going to be?

    We are liaising with Spirit of Shankley as we pinpointed the Liverpool game as one that will get a lot of media coverage as it is shown on television. They are marching with us as a sign of solidarity, that this is a wider football issue, not just Newcastle United.

    Spirit of Shankley are not coming up to bump up the numbers, as I said, it is a sign of solidarity.

    They are bringing upwards of 5000 fans to the march, and I would hope that our own fans would provide as many if not more than this.

    Disappointed that you’ve seemingly made up your mind on such a trivial issue, not exactly a well thought out conclusion on your part.

    Sorry for late reply iv been v busy as of late.

    In response to a few articles ago, you would be hard pushed to find one single positive comment iv made about Ashley since last summer, I was merely stating Tds was correct for saying it was both parties responsible for the breakdown between ashley and fans, that point is well documented.

    As for futility? We have 50 thousand silent geordies at st james at the moment, perhaps if some of the passion people are showing for setting up their little groups was to creep into the stadium we could be the 12th man again and help the team progress?

    Being at the game on Saturday was like sitting in a library at times, my mate verbally disagreed with the ref about 12 rows back and the front row heard him and agreed, that shouldn’t happen.

    What the f@ck is the spirit of Shankley.
    I couldn’t give 2 hoots about the man.
    What next a pie @ pea supper for Cilla Black.
    How about the spirit of Joe Harvey, that’s more like it.
