French Star Our Man Of The Match


It’s hardly surprising that Yohan Cabaye is our Man of the Match for yesterday’s game at West Ham, after he scored two superb goals and it was a very good all round performance from the French International midfielder.

Yohan Cabaye – scoring Newcastle’s first goal yesterday

Cabaye has a massive 83% of the vote, with our other two central midfielders Cheick Tiote and Vurnon Anita next in line with just 3%, with Vurnon starting to do a good job in midfield for Newcastle these days.

There is still time to vote if you haven’t already done so.

With games and goals like this,the transfer fee that it will take for Cabaye to leave  Newcastle in the summer will continue to rise.

    Cabaye was pure class.

    Manu being very physical. Theyr stoppin counter attacks by hook or by crook and trying to close down forcing cech to hoof. Worked for a bit but in the end Manu attack just isnt good enough.

    @Anita
    Yep, Cabaye is such a professional footballer. Why Benny cannot learn from his beyond me!

    @wolfs,
    Jose picks eto’o ahead of torres and he grabs a brace! The man, no doubt a great manager, but so is his luck line on his palm!

    Sturridge does have a high opinion of himself as do many modern players. Its the money. He is a good player though. I could deffo see a forward line for england having both him and welbeck in it with an in for rooney pulling the strings around them.

    If Demba Ba started as many games as Eto’o has this season, he would have more goals. I have no doubt. Mourinho plays his favourites even if it is unjust. Just ask Juan Mata, who was arguably the best midfielder in the Premier League last year.

    Does it really matter if some of you guys rate Laudrup or not? He is not going to be our manager anyway and if you don’t like to watch his brand of football there always another game on you can watch!

    …does that settle it?

    Puts off the keeper, leaving him unbalanced and also prevents him from even thinking about challenging for the ball.

    Maybe eto’ooooo has been showing better form in training. I think most of Jose’s choices are down to his excellent judgement rather than luck. So far im my 36 year life span i have to say alex strawberry nose fergusson is the most successful manager in the english league i have seen, even if i think he is a horrible tw@t. But Jose M, by the time i die, certainly has the pedigree to become better

    Eto’o is doing well but I cant help feeling Shola would beon a hat trick aganst this Man U side. They are truly fulfilling the Great Ketsy’s prophecy. Boneless.

    Lol fair play mate! 🙂
    I think when Welbeck had his breakthrough season he looked decent but i think he’s bought in to his own hype to much, Manure didnt help that in all fairness by giving him a 70k a week contract before seeing if he could play like that consistently!
    If he gets back to basic’s he could still become a top player but imo his ego is his stumbling block

    Jesper
    Didn’t think they were discussing if he would do better than pardew here just if he was doing better than Pardew, give the fact there only 3 points off the relegation zone i’d day he isn’t

    On the other hand, they have not become useless over night. I believe in the “transition season” theory. Four top players in summer and they will be challenging again nezt year. I think we should enjoy this while it lasts 😀

    That has nowt to do with Manure’s form but more to do with the fact Shola is simply world class

    I genuinely don’t think Moyes could attract four top players, just dont think he has a big enough reputation within the game

    Has the rumour mill given up on Ba coming back to Newcastle? Nothing like a bit of false hope from papers on a slow news day!

    Markaccus – without a doubt, but rarely has Man U endured such a lengthy transition, they usually have a core of layers who the team changes around, in this case missing the likes of RVP and Rooney changes them immeasurably. I also think that SAF had a bit of a issue with getting his squad strengthened in recent years, otherwise players like Scholes and Giggs, great thought they were, would have been out well before they have been, let alone brought back from retirement. If their board dont give Moyes the strength in the transfer market he requires, the transition may not end for some considerable time. It would be weird to see Man U as a perennial mid table team, and admittedly kind of sad. Unless of course we take their place 🙂

    Tads…everyone finds it hard at times for whatever reason!
    And as we all know when you are down it can be difficult to get up…it happens regardless of what kind of football you play and it happens whether you are in Europe or not.

    …I am not sure if it matters whether we think Pardew have done better or worse than Laudrup? What matters to me is what Pardew has done with what he got and how it looks 🙂

    Yeah i agree he couldnt himself. However manure are still a massive club, unfortunately, and i believe that will provide the pull. Moyes is a good manager tbf. He will get himself a decent rep in a few seasons time.

    Well its fair to say he’s Pardews doing better than last season with what he’s got
    On paper our squad is top 8 possibly top 6 at a push so he’s about on track tbh
    We still dont have much natural width or a natural number 10, luckily Cabaye is doing very well in the advanced role and goofy and Sissoko are doing alright wide but we wont progress in league position or in performance massively until we invest in the right areas which us something MA does not do, he goes for who’s available rather than who we need when we need them
