French Reports – Newcastle Have Agreed £12M Cabella Deal

2:13 pm, Saturday, January 18th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 390 Comments

There is news coming through that the father of Newcastle midfield target – Remy Cabella of Montpellier – has said the deal is being negotiated, and that his son will be joining Newcastle in January.

Remy Cabella -Montpellier_2706939

Remy Cabella – joining Newcastle in January

There’s a report in the Metro that  reports are coming out of France that his father, Hector Cabella, is quoted as saying the following:

‘Yes we are negotiating Remy’s transfer.” “He will join Newcastle this winter.”

And there’s some credibility in that statement from his father, because he’s also is his son’s agent.

Montpellier and Newcastle have been in negotiations for the player in January, but there have been conflicting statements from both the Montpellier Chairman Louis Nicollin, and the player himself about whether he would stay at Montpellier through the end of the season, to help them fight relegation.

And the fee that the French club wanted was around £14M, so if Newcastle have indeed agreed to pay out £12M, the deal could well have been done and Newcastle may have got themselves a top young midfielder, who has skills galore.

And if Newcastle do manage to wrap up this deal, it will be the first permanent signing for Director of Football Joe Kinnear at Newcastle, and it looks a good one at that.

23 year-old Cabella has played 17 times with four goals for the French U21 side, and the rumors early in January were that he wanted to join Newcastle.

We hope the reports and quotes in France are real and accurate.

Comments welcome.

    i think people forget it wasn’t a foregone conclusion we would’ve drawn at citeh had the goal stood. anyway, to today

    Sky Sports: Arsenal have reactivated their interest in Yohan Cabaye, they claim. #AFC #NUFC (@beinsports_FR)

  • 5 Toon1978 // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:20 PM

    People saying if he joins us than Cabaye is away. They are completely different players. Would not make sense.

  • 6 Markaccus // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:21 PM

    Ssn REALLY complimentary about Tiote. Phil thompson is practically W@nking over him

  • 7 Laurent Robert 32 // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:22 PM

    Bet he can’t wait to be part of a defensively adventurous side.

  • 11 Mister Tuff // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:24 PM

    Markaccus – I note instead of referring to the post as a web robot – you chose the abbreviated form ie bot. Your subsequent reference to bumming grease -clearly reveals your interest in such practises. Shocking.

  • 12 Laurent Robert 32 // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:24 PM

    Ed, what’s with the invisible ads on here via mobile (android)?

    Can’t turn them off. I’ve just been turning the sound down.

    Toon 1978
    Cabella has played many games this season through the middle in front of a defensive midfielder,As many wish ben arfa to play

  • 14 Toon1978 // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:25 PM

    jazzyp

    Ahhhh ok mate. How do you rate Cabella?

  • 15 mattyNUFC // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:27 PM

    has anyone actually seen Cabella play? I haven’t. Even his highlight videos aren’t amazing. You see him do one trick with the ball (which 90% of the time it seems he’s fortunate to get off) and then give up possession easily

    i’d like someone’s take who has actually seen him play more than a few matches

  • 16 StevieB // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:27 PM

    Looks a cracking player. Very similar to HBA but more direct, a little bit quicker and can tackle. Certainly not a replacement for Cabaye so fingers crossed we can complete the deal

  • 17 santonthenewmaldini // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:28 PM

    I think it will probably mean Arfa on the way out but why must anyone leave if he signs for us?we need strength and depth the majority of games we lose are because we have no one on the bench to turn it around getting rid of Obertan, Marveux , Jonas and Arfa who are supposed to be providers and replacing them with Cabella , the De Jong brothers and Ince would be a cracking piece of business although doubt that will actually happen

  • 18 jazzyp // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:28 PM

    Toon1978
    In no way do I want to lose Cabs as he is the engine of our midfield, But Cabella could be a serious talent.not a finished article by any standard but a rough gem

  • 19 wolfshead@toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:28 PM

    matty

    benny mark 2 then

  • 20 Ben3arfa // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:28 PM

    Do we sell Cabaye now for 20 odd million or risk losing him for 6 million in the summer (contract buy out)?

  • 21 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:29 PM

    I am taking a break from the blog only to come back to the news that Pardew has shuffled the cards and gone with the same side :(

    …I am not sure anymore if it matters whether ir not I can make this game :(

  • 22 Ben3arfa // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:29 PM

    Wes Brown just snapped Gaston Ramirez ankle and the ref didnt even give a foul!

    something must be done about shocking refereeing decisons like these

  • 23 mattyNUFC // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:30 PM

    Will Hughes would’ve been this same amount too i think

  • 24 Toon1978 // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:31 PM

    jazzy

    It would be criminal to let Cabaye go now. We need to keep him until the en of the season at least. I have watched Cabella a few times. He looks very skillful, quick and direct but seems a little light weight.

  • 25 ebm // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:32 PM

    I really don’t like it when players have fathers that are so involved and happy to talk to the media. Even worse than agents, as they have even more influence over the player.

  • 26 jazzyp // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:36 PM

    Toon1978
    If you can remember bud so was ben arfa when he first came, Now look at him with some Geordie grub inside him lol

  • 27 santonthenewmaldini // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:37 PM

    Signing a few players could have shown ambition and could make the likes of Cabaye want to stay ?

  • 28 Toon1978 // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:38 PM

    Jazzy

    Lol, fingers crossed he signs and we keep all players.

  • 29 Thump // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:40 PM

    How about we lay the clever jibes aside because i a have a virus and cant be bothered. I will simply say “f#ck off, you pointless peice of festering rhino sh!t” You don’t like speaking to anyone who does not share your opinions to the letter, so you need not speak to me. To everyone else, enjoy the game (if you can)

  • 31 asenski // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:40 PM

    as to the match it is very even game and we have great difficulties winning these games just because we can play only a counter-attack and sitting deep until they score and the game just ends up haven’t you noticed that

  • 32 Thump // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:42 PM

    @santon: let’s hope so. That’s all it would have taken to keep Enrique (which I’m still sore about, he’s the best left back we’ve had in times memory imo)

  • 33 mattyNUFC // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:42 PM

    I’m sure this was already mentioned but this is from Espn:

    10.50 GMT New Milan coach Clarence Seedorf is determined to restore order to the Rossoneri’s chaotic league campaign and is planning to bring several new faces to the San Siro. The Times say that Seedorf has identified Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul as a priority target and hopes to lure his fellow Dutchman to Italy with the promise of European football.

    what totally, utter, pathetic BULLSH!T this is about Cabella!

    i remember PEA family member came out and said that he was going to Newcastle and look how that turned out!

  • 38 mattyNUFC // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:47 PM

    what’s all this nonsense about HBA being fat?

    He’s still probably the quickest in the team (if we discount obertan as a professional footballer)

  • 39 mattyNUFC // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:48 PM

    why so angry?

    I’m just sick of these BS that comes out of sites and paper, we all know no one is coming through the doors because if that was the case how come Ince & Gomis have’n’t been signed up yet

  • 43 Pradajames // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:51 PM

    Continuing our collection of the worst haircuts in the PL

  • 44 asenski // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:51 PM

    how can you lose 4 in a row and make no changes ?
    really don’t understand pardew..he akways finds the reason of a fail somewhere outside

  • 45 Ancientcoptic // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:51 PM

    The Daily Mail are reporting we are swapping Cisse for De Jong. I have my doubts, but it would make sense for both clubs.

  • 46 TorqToon // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:51 PM

    Jazzy – at the moment there is no story to break, just a quote. Which as we know can be misconstrued, misquoted or any number of things.

    But very positive and if the £12.3mil is true, then that is a steal imo.

  • 47 BuckLuck // Jan 18, 2014 at 2:53 PM

    Does someone have a link or two to the match?
    Not broadcasted in Norway. Love the new rules :/

    Also;
    Only watched Cabella on youtube and that’s only his positive sides highlighted. How is he as a player besides technique and vision? Does he have any bad weaknesses?

    Why be so negative mate.We are only half way through the transfer window and there is still hope. If we do not bring in anyone over the line as the last transfer window, Then yes questions need to be answered as what the hell the joker is actually doing for his salary

  • 57 TheToonKing // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:00 PM

    West Ham are up for this… good to see Big Sam is not rallying his troops to play in pathetic fashion. We may get a game today.

  • 62 Tsunki // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:03 PM

    Handbags before kick off :D

    I don’t think Hatem should stick around if he can’t start against sissoko in this game. He should have gone on loan to another Pl club like Jonas as I am certain Pardew will never find out how to shape his team with him in it. The negativity of his tactic of getting everyone including his attacking players to defend is turning into a dire percentage game where we are always looking to drop back at any threat. We will probably win all the same but it’s hardly inspiring.

  • 63 toonarmydownsouth // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:04 PM

    Ancient
    Completely agree re cisse
    Said last week both Cisse and De Jong seem to be struggling because they don’t suit the managers style of play (regardless of that style !) and would make the most sense for both clubs

  • 67 Marty-Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    Revy shoulve passed that to Anita

  • 68 Our Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    Tads

    You’d think the manager would want to change that style considering Cisse got 13 goals in 14 games!! A manager who refuses to change his style is very 1 dimensional and tactically inept as well as not good enough to get the best out of his players

    Matty Taylor playing RB for west ham….why the heck is HBA on the bench, also Carlton Cole has 3 goals in 5 games!! Shocking he’s in better form than all of our strikers……..howay the toon

  • 69 Our Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:12 PM

    Remy should have passed, greedy….sounds about right

    Great goal by Cabaye!

    He did exactly what he wanted to. Didn’t just smashed it. Instead, put it with quality in the corner.

    Great goal. A good pass by Goofy as well.

  • 89 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:18 PM

    cabaye is worth at least £25 million in my opinion.

  • 99 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:24 PM

    this is a classic allardyce team. all brawn and no brains.
    But these missed chances have me worried. We really need to score a second goal to give ourselves a cushion. If they bring on Caroll i sense an equaliser Our central defence is a shambolic at the moment.

  • 100 Toon Tang // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:24 PM

    should be burying chances like that. we may regret it

  • 101 toonicle // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:25 PM

    Jarvis is getting too many chances down the right there, bit worried there.

  • 102 Oleg G // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:25 PM

    Am I wrong to say that if we were a more lethal team, we would be already 3 up?

  • 105 Our Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:27 PM

    Lol glad I got a response but you clearly don’t read my posts, unlike most on here I’ve never criticised Cabaye, I’ve consistently backed him. I suggest you go back to last weeks posts it should be become clear!! ;)

  • 110 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:31 PM

    Beautiful pass by Sissoko! Wow.

  • 129 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:34 PM

    Sissoko has really come into his own on the right wing, well played

  • 130 santonthenewmaldini // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:34 PM

    Playing some liquid football about time we roasted an Allardyce team lets get more!!!

  • 131 BandB // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:34 PM

    Two goals. Two PROPER goals from proper build-up play. Should have been a hatful, the chances we’ve made. Brilliant!
    Another hammering here for Sam, and he could be out of the door.

  • 132 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:34 PM

    Love seeing Saylor burst forward like that

  • 133 Marty-Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:35 PM

    i’m friends with some ex newcastle players and one of them has txt me to let me know that Remy Cabella and Kurt Zouma have both been seen in Newcastle Centre today. I trust him as he is a close friend as well as an ex player so hoping that Newcastle will have some news regarding some signings soon

  • 140 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:37 PM

    Just wish we would have more attacking the pull-back cross.

    I’m glad Pards got the team motivated, because I honestly worried about this game and losing 6 straight.

  • 141 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:38 PM

    not to be greedy here but i think we need a third to secure the poiints. Westham are a classic smash and grab side. If they pull one back they’ll probably get the equaliser

  • 142 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:39 PM

    It just leaves me mystified why we don’t take this approach more often. Is it because West Ham are pure shite?

  • 143 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:39 PM

    Santon’s been quiet today

  • 144 Ancientcoptic // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:40 PM

    Toonbrother, I agree. We may need a third.

    They are going to come out in the 2nd half, all guns blazing… Andy Carroll could do some damage with their width.

  • 145 Ancientcoptic // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:41 PM

    Big differences in our play… playing higher up the pitch, not camping on the lead etc…

    My faith is fully restored in Pardew.

  • 146 Marty-Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:42 PM

    Cabaye is paying really well,surely he’s worth 20 and more,we either need to buy a couple of decent players to show him were serious(not gonna happen) or get a good price
    We could offer him a bigger wage to extend the contract(not gonna happen)

  • 147 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:42 PM

  • 155 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:46 PM

    That was almost Saylor’s moment of madness. Ball went looses and he dived in, glad he didn’t make contact.

  • 156 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:46 PM

    one of the most satisfying first half displays i’ve seen from us in a while

  • 157 Laurent Robert 32 // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:46 PM

    West Ham are very poor. They’ve only won two at home. Hoofball galore for them.

    Today is an improvement for us although they are giving us lots of space to do what we want.

    Sam must be getting sidetracked thinking of how well he’d do for Real Madrid.

  • 158 Tom4Nufc // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:47 PM

  • 162 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:48 PM

    Oh ffs.

    What is it with us and scrappy goals.

    So undeserving.

    Saylor not challenging and just waving his arms around appealing like the div he is.

  • 163 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:48 PM

    Have to say that was a clever chest down by Cole.

  • 168 Oleg G // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:49 PM

    What da F was that??

    They didn’t have a chance, and they still scored one? What is wrong with us? argh!!!!

    We should be 4-0 up. Instead it is 2-1. Hope, really really hope this won’t come and bites us, as it usually does.

  • 169 manxpie // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:50 PM

  • 170 TheToonKing // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:50 PM

    Krul is soooo unlucky lately with these bounces when he’s coming out. I think that’s the 3rd goal conceeded when Krul comes out, makes the save and it bounces luckily to them.

  • 171 ilovetoon8788 // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    West Ham might still draw level. We need to push forward more in the 2nd half.

  • 172 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    Krul was to blame for that goal. Not Taylor or Williamson

  • 173 noladonna // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:51 PM

    great half of football that shame taylor just couldnt head the ball outta the box for there goal, kinda miss timed his jump a bit, still think we will score another 2 second half 4-1 toon win HWTL

    Oh and i cant belive they got such a scrappy goal and are back in the game as it could have easily been 6 or 7 nil.

  • 175 toonarmydownsouth // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:52 PM

    Terrible way to give WHU a life line going into the break
    On the whole a good half but further highlighting the desperate need for a starting clinical CF the chances we’ve spurned this match along with citeh arsenal and WBA aren’t acceptable if were serious about moving to that next level
    In all honesty we should be out of sight in this game

  • 176 jazzyp // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:52 PM

    Luuk on the bench today,Still no deal agreed then

  • 177 santonthenewmaldini // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:52 PM

    We just need to keep playing the same way though we look like scoring every time we get the ball cant believe they scored just before half time jammy Allardyce!

    Must say that is some of the best football we have played under Pardew in that 1st half should be out of sight

    Cant really complain about Sissoko and Gouffran on the wings they have been awesome created a lot of chances

  • 178 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:52 PM

    manxpie

    Went in hard? The barrel shaped clown can hardly get off the ground, so already had half an eye on appealing before any incident (for what was he appealing?), instead of concentrating on defending. Could see Willo was pissed with him.

  • 185 Mister Tuff // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:55 PM

    Was really going too well -and we’ve spurned loads of chances.
    Fat Sam will bring on Carroll for the aerial bombardment/extreme hoofball. What the hell will Percy do -probably bring on Obertan. Unless we get another quick goal -panic stations will set in.

  • 186 70TWO // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:55 PM

    We are really looking good cutting through them, but can’t do anything about their bit of luck. Keep going lads, keep playing those passes.

    What the hell was Saylor doing there? Walking liability!!

    Why do we always self-destruct in great positions?

    Absolutely dominated it in a 433 with Anita, which looks so much better than 442 with Shola.

    Really hope that just for once we go for a 3rd rather than just try and hold this as you can just see the inevitable carroll scores headlines otherwise.

  • 189 Tom4Nufc // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:56 PM

    We’re still winning chaps and had a good half!

    Ben Arfa will hopefully come on soon and SMASH it up!

    HWTL

  • 190 theartfuldodger // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:58 PM

    Our second goal was actually appaling defending from the westham man. Completely missed the ball under no pressure. Should have been a simple clearance.

  • 191 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    Anyway. Cabaye man of the half, followed closely by Anita.

    Can see Anita has a real deeply engrained culture to his play. So measured and intelligent in everything he does.

  • 192 lukes26 // Jan 18, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    Pardew is obviously telling the team to attack the RB. Thats where all attacks are coming from.

    Im always impressed by James Collins though. Since West Ham have 0 midfield, Newcastle should eventually wear the defense out.

  • 197 ilovetoon8788 // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:02 PM

    cabaye is outstanding. his ball for sissoko miss was a thing of beauty.

    good assist by gouffran for the goal. will really hurt if we draw or lose this now.

  • 198 lukes26 // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:03 PM

    Ted Bundy…agreed.

    I hate how the commentator of the match said his one-two touch passing was “simple”

    Putting the perfect weight on a one touch like he did is not “simple” at all.

    He’s getting further up the pitch than he usually does. Mostly because he doesnt have to worry about West Ham’s midfield. Theyre breaking themselves down.

    It’s raining long balls at Upton Park… if the Hammers fans have any pride they will sing the fat one out of the ground tonight… no one in their right mind wants to watch this bull shit being served up from the hammers… thugs and reprobates who don’t allow the beautiful game to be played… I have seen more constructive football played at amateur level, always had a wee soft spot for the Hammers because they were the epicentre of english football and it’s success in ’66, they don’t deserve to served this shite from BFS!

  • 254 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    catchy imho, its because shola would cakewalk the aerial battle against this shaky WHU defense. Not sure you would want Hatem on as we are being run up and down the pitch and neither Cisse as we are struggling to hold possession, Shola is a ball winner.

  • 255 Marty-Toon // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:29 PM

    At least Saylor will be feeling more comfortable, having someone equally as dumb as him on the pitch now, in Carroll.

    is dummett a better defender than Santon? Just because he’s not as good going forward doesnt mean he;s better defensively.

    both shola and Williamson are both 6,4 both carnt head the ball,

    bambies game is hold the ball up, but he fouls to many times

    HBA should have been the first sub

  • 280 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:36 PM

    Bit of selective memory there, Shola wins the air ball constantly.

    Hatem is on at any rate.

  • 281 catchy in norway // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:36 PM

  • 283 jordijohnty // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    why is dummet on for santon?

  • 284 Ancientcoptic // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    Dummett playing where he should be and covering his lines, impressed already.

  • 285 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    Dummett does NOT look at ease! What was the point of that substitution? Whydid he take Anita off?!???? Shola is doing absolutely nothing!

  • 286 Cool Hand Luke // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:38 PM

  • 291 ilovetoon8788 // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    We like barely touched the ball this half,

  • 292 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    A sure-footed sublime 1st half, minus injury time, turned into another nerve-racking feat of grit and luck to hopefully hold out.

  • 293 toonarmydownsouth // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    Can’t understand the Santon sub every game makes no sense start the lad or drop him no point in keeping making that sub every game when really we need offensive subs

  • 294 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    Ben arfa pass the ball or shoot. Dont give it away cheaply!

  • 295 jordijohnty // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    if ben arfa learnt to pass he might start a game or two

  • 296 Ron Knee // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    A draw would be a criminal result.

  • 297 ilovetoon8788 // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    Ben arfa stupid decision making is why no top clubs would want him. He won’t move to a club bigger than us for sure.

    His value is 10million tops.,

  • 298 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    @289toonarmydownsouth couldnt have said it better. Complete waste of a substitution if you ask me

  • 299 Toon Tang // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:42 PM

    filthy rat , he meant every inch of that

  • 300 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:42 PM

    catchy
    I never implied he was a goal scorer with the header, I said he’s a ball winner. Shola is there to bring the long ball down for someone to get a chance on goal.

  • 301 Ancientcoptic // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:42 PM

    Santon was more interested in playing at their corner flag than his own. He is a defender first and foremost, or should be.

    The sub made sense to me.

  • 302 asenski // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:43 PM

    how many games has pardew spoiled?
    and most of them after the first 45 min?

  • 303 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:43 PM

    this is an important game to win. We can do it if we dont invite pressure on ourselves

  • 304 Laurent Robert 32 // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:45 PM

    Pardew is lucky Cole is a poor finisher.

  • 305 Ron Knee // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:46 PM

    Could be a lot of stoppage time.

  • 306 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:46 PM

    i dont like these corners

  • 310 Ted Bundy // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:47 PM

    Santon stops nothing coming into the box, he’s defensive mist. Either gets beat or fails to stop the crosses.

  • 311 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:48 PM

    my heart stopped beating for a second there

  • 312 jordijohnty // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:48 PM

    how many games has he really changed? in his whole nufc career

    I bet it’s under 5 games

  • 314 89Norcal // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:48 PM

    Pardew definitely has to figure out how to impose ourselves in these situations. Feels like we are so open when possession is lost and they just sprint down the flanks with acres of space.

  • 315 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:48 PM

    TBH he instrumental in the 5th place season . He connected well with Ba on multiple occasions through his ability to win aerial battles. I remember he did it vs Man U and Tottenham, off the top of my head. Certain there were others you are just not seeing them because you dislike him so much.

    @Blofal: If we sell him, Ashley will have a f’ing riot on his hands. That’s how.

    Brilliant result but I can’t help but feel like we got away with it a bit in the second half. Thankfully Yohan put them to the sword.

    no clue mate….cant see is replacing him….. its sad if I think about it that transfer window when we brought him in. Should have brought in more players…. JAN win still not closed but really do think we need to bring in ONE more real quality players like him….

  • 356 Thump // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:57 PM

    he simply is not good enough for any club in the prem, he is to heavy and won’t run

  • 359 BandB // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:58 PM

    He has been my favourite player, but that was another series a horrible decisions by him. He is probably being talked to death all week, and his confidence looks shot.

  • 360 TheToonKing // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:58 PM

    Cabaye was on another level compared to both teams today.

    We need to do everything to keep him.

  • 361 toonbrother // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:58 PM

    to be fair to Pardew we were quite solid defensively. Saylor and Willo were robust at the back

  • 362 ilovetoon8788 // Jan 18, 2014 at 4:59 PM

    @gorgonzola

    he’s playing at the top top of his game at the moment. he was shi^ last season.

    now he’s the fulcrum in our side.

    It’s not Hatem’s fault when he comes on, he’s expected to try and make something happen which hasn’t been happening during the game.

    He’s is bound to run into dead ends.

    We have no chance of keeping Cabaye, he will already be looking at the fact he did not get an improved contract, as lost earnings.

    He is leaving us 100%, Ashley is not interested in paying the lad what he is worth.

    stfu. HBA is crap. His decision making is pants. he merely held the ball up and Carroll was stupid doing what he did giving away the foul. Not like he did something magical.

    It was Cabaye’s technique. Beautifully struck. HBA did f all.

  • 373 theartfuldodger // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:03 PM

    Woeful second half from us. WestHam had two great chances for carroll and cole. They could have taken the lead. And sissoko is not a natural striker of the ball.
    Very good first half though. Should have been out of sight.

  • 374 lukes26 // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:04 PM

    Have to say I’m just not a fan if his, also hate the unbelievable double standards when talking about him, if sammy/obertan/Marv/whoever came on for 15 mins coming on and do what he’s been doing recently people would saying why is he playing not good enough etc

    Hmmm maybe it’s the constant brown nosing that’s put me right off the lad! ;)

  • 377 Oleg G // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:05 PM

    Looking at the table, right now we can clearly see already who is where.

    The bottom 11 are one group, with 5 points between 10th and 20th places.

    If there will be no surpises, Chelsea will beat Man U and will be in the group of the top 3 with 51,50 and 49 points.

    And then there is the Middle group of 4th to 9th, with Liverpool and Everton looking like they can still jump to the upper group and make it a top 5. Maybe Spurs will even change places at some point with Everton or Liverpool.

    Anyway. This season the league is comfortable for the club’s goals which are nothing basically. Top 10, we are there already. Hope we can get back into the 5th-6th place battle.

  • 378 Tsunki // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:06 PM

    Ben Arfa wasn’t great but wasn’t terrible. Just another 10 minutes to go sub against a team who either booted it long or headed. Not many players are going to be instrumental given such rubbish cameos tbf. Having said that he was clever to turn and shield the ball for the FK so can’t say he was altogether a waste of time. Awful predictable Allardyce second half.

    Should be happy at 3-1 but again Pardew invites pressure by getting his team to sit back on a tenuous lead against a dismal mob like WHU
    It could as likely have been a draw today but for HBA and Cabaye at the death. This formula is starting to really drive me nuts.

  • 379 toonarmydownsouth // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:06 PM

  • 380 toonking // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:08 PM

    pardew should stop playing HBA altogether, he is nothing but a fat selfish footballer.
    against city last week so many times players were getting into the space but what does he do he ignores them and goes for a show off goal.

    last season HBA started more games than marvo yet who gets more assist marvo.
    you all complain about obatan never doing much creative play, Jonas being poor at crossing, shola not scoring enough.

    WELL HBA IS JUST AS BAD HIMSELF.

    had he not scored that wonder goal when he first joined I could see him getting so much more abuse from most.

    cabeye needs a big contract offer to keep him here
    he won us the game and not just his goals

    we should have been 4-0 up at half time really, remy needs to work on his team play because the smile and shake of anitas head said it all after remys 1st chance!!

  • 386 Mister Tuff // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:13 PM

    3 points is three points. A win is a win -but apart from some decent stuff in the first half -overall – that was one of the poorest first flight matches I have seen in years. So disjointed and did not look anything like a team. West Ham were rubbish and we were only slightly better.If the Hammers go down -we should celebrate our part in their downfall. They’ve been favourites of the media/southern based papers for years.- they offer nothing in terms of a football spectacle.

  • 387 BandB // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:16 PM

    TADS,

    I always thought he suffered for the way the team just stood and watched when he got the ball instead of trying to lose a marker.
    I also think he looks confused and inhibited. Yes, some great flair players also have it in their game to track back and cover the full-back, but he doesn’t.
    That said, the onus on covering the full-back is an obsession with us. Our wingers are babysitters first and foremost.
    Surely a team that plays two and sometimes three defensive mids can afford ONE attacking winger?

  • 388 JP...from The Rock // Jan 18, 2014 at 5:27 PM

    Wow! Well done Kinnear – for once! lol I am still in shock, I’ll believe it when I see it in black and white.

    Very exciting indeed. Coming from his father it does give this story legs though and 12M will be the most Ashley will have spent on just one player.
