Alan Pardew – Yohan Cabaye A Class Act All Day

7:33 pm, Saturday, January 18th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 10 Comments

Another three goals all from French players and Newcastle racked up their six away win of the season with a good 3-1 win at West Ham,  and with Crystal Palace winning 1-0 at home to Stoke, the Hammers are now 3rd bottom of the league.

Alan Pardew – after the game today

All Newcastle’s goals were very well taken, but the goal we conceded – well it was terrible – and some f our players must have lost their concentration just before half time – not a good time to conceded a goal.

Pardew was delighted with Cabaye’s overall performance and the Frenchman now has seven goals this season, and tied with Gouffran and four behind Loic Remy’s 11 goals

This is what Alan Pardew said after the game today:

“He has an almost free role in the team in the number 10 position.” “I thought Cabaye was a class act all day really, he’s added goals to his game.”

“He has been a big player for us. He helped us get a nice rhythm in midfield, which worked well for us really.”

“The one regret was the final minute of the first half,”  “To concede at that moment was really really bad. I really focused at half-time to get the team into a place where we could go and play like we did in the first half.”

“It was difficult for us, we had to show the other side and dig in and win headers and win challenges.”

It’s good to get a win again, and now we play Norwich and Sunderland in our next two games, and no reason why we cannot pick up all 6 points in those two games.

    Well finally got round to coming on here after a busy day, caught the game and thought we played very well in the first half, kept attacking even after the first and second goal which is a very positive step.

    We struggled in the 2nd half but that goal gave them a huge boost and really cole and carroll should have made it 3-2, but they didn’t, we got the little bit of luck at key times this week after not getting it last week.

    Dummet impressed me once again when he came on, looks a reliable fullback. I don’t think shola offered a lot, not even in hold up play, remy did better running in behind to relieve pressure but we have limited options for strikers so it’s difficult to find fault with bringing shola on really.

    On cabella, hope it’s true but also hope we keep playing cabaye near the striker, he is getting so many goals.

    Let’s hope Cabella doesn’t do a Loic Remy and sign for someone else

    Hate Pardew!

    Milks every victory.

    Treats fans like he is doing us a favor by managing us.

    There’s a few links on Twitter saying that no deal has been agreed for Cabella. Heres to hoping that is old news resurfacing.

    West Ham were very loose defensively and in midfield and it helped us pass the ball about a bit, which was better to see in the first half. Second half was poor though.

    Lovely freekick from Cabaye and nice cross from Sissoko.

    I like cabaye and he will be a big miss as I think hes a good player. I just hope he doesn’t rot on a bench somewhere for the sake of getting the occasional c/l game.
