Newcastle Star – Now I Just Want To Keep Scoring

6:57 pm, Saturday, December 21st, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 5 Comments

Yohan Cabaye came back into the starting line-up for Newcastle today at Selhurst Park, and played his part in a fantastic Newcastle win by a score of 3-0, and the lads controlled the game well – from start to finish. And Yohan scored for the second game running and he now had four goals, and has said after the game he just wants to keep scoring – that’s fine with us. :D

Yohan Cabaye – after scoring the first Newcastle goal

And Yohan Cabaye was interviewed immediately after the game in London today, and this is what he had to say:

“To be in the team and play like that is always a good feeling.”  “It was a small pitch, a small stadium and a big atmosphere. For my goal, Moussa Sissoko loves that little pass and I’m always thinking about  trying to be in the right position and hit the target.”

“Now I just want to keep scoring!”  “But we just want to think about the next game and focus on that, because if we think about the end of the season such as Europa League or something more, it might be difficult to stay focused.”

“The next battle is going to be hard, Stoke City at home. We just want to get three points and stay at the top of the league.”

It was an encouraging performance form Newcastle today, but we have to keep it up in our next games, which are at home to Stoke on Thursday afternoon – Boxing Day – and then a really top fixture next Sunday afternoon when we welcome Arsenal to St. James’ Park, in the early game – a 1:30 pm kick-off.

On New years’ Day we visit West Brom and then three days later we host Cardiff City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

So there’s are many game upcoming – but we can enjoy this very good 5th win on the road today and another clean sheet.

Howay The Lads!!

    I’m not going to get into a debate over this, but you might want to consider how those people don’t always want to be attacked by people like you when they show their optimistic side.

    At the moment we have players like Willo, Debuchy, Tiote and Shola who are playing well, despite and backers for those players being attacked by people who think they know how to judge a player. Anyone predicting top 8 was slated and insulted because “how could a club that nearly got relegated last season and only added 1 loan player finish in the top 8?”

    Even I am tired of defending our players, our manager and our transfer record…

    His timing for the runs into the box is encouraging. A bit soon to say for sure, but it reminds me very much of Nolan – Lampard type of late runs.

    Fairplay to Pardew for moving out of the CDM/Quarterback role, and more into the hole behind the striker. Takes the heat off Remy some as our only source of goals.

    btw, anyone concerned that Remy hasn’t scored in 5 games? he looked less than sharp today.

    I said earlier in the week that Alan Pardew has developed a home and away team and this is serving him well. Very happy but when you see what HBA can offer you hope that he can be given a starting position however it seems Sissoko and Goufran are standing in his way and no one would be in a hurry to leave either of them out. My own solution would be to find space for him in the “home” team alongside Remy?
    Back for the Stoke game, can’t wait!!!!!!
