A Tribute To Yohan Cabaye – Video


Here is a video on Yohan Cabaye made by one of our readers – Fitz – and it shows some of the fantastic goals Yohan Cabaye scored for Newcastle and for France in his short time on Tyneside – and we are going to miss him big time.

    My problem is he is not suited to the modern premiership winger role. As i said before, they have to work hard and have defensive duties too. Hba just wont do that. I prefer to see him dribbling past people through the middle, at least if he loses it he is protected, and if he is in full flow, he can make something happen. He just needs to sort his head out.

    Ashley’s predictability/ fans the collateral damage/ what next for Cabaye and the club

    Give it a read please lads, been a while since I wrote on the club. Thanks 🙂

    Yesterday morning I vote “lose” for Norwich game… that time only 14% thing that we will lose and above 70 was for winning… now 24 hours later 36% for lose and 47% for win.

    Ideally cabaye isn’t our number 10, we sign grenier, we sign cabella, etc

    but what I mean is that he might be the best option we have there (or marv but similar problems) so might as well try him and see what heppens, nobody else has anywhere near the passing of cabaye to really try them

    I don’t think any of us are surprised at this, and it’s good to see how many fans understand that for Cabaye, it is a move he has to make.

    If the fee really is around £20 million, it’s a poor bit of business for us. Forget how much we paid for him, the important figure is how much it would cost us to replace him and it’s more than we have sold him for.

    Spot on

    Marv does not have short comings of Hba. Both don’t defend granted but where as Marv looks for a pass Hba wants to do it alone. You can’t have a no.10 wanting to take on the world and turn round do it again .. For me needs to be someone who can take someone on but also needs to be able to split the defence with one brilliant pass.. Hba had it in his locker but doesn’t have the football brain to use it. Don’t get me wrong I love to see benny running at defenders scoring brilliant goals but not what you need for 90mins of a game.. Just my opinion..

    Tads I don’t want to be limping over line either but we all know JFK ain’t a clue what day it is never mind the fact cabs could buy out his contract at end of the year then get it back in a signing on fee. He didn’t realise that till he read it in daily sport yesterday morning

    Absolutely gutted we have lost Cabaye but it was on the cards.

    This season his performances have been significantly better than last year so in my opinion he put himself in the shop window. Although there is also an argument he is scared of losing his place to Pogba in the French team. With a 0% win ratio when he hasn’t played vs a 58% win ratio when he has it is not hard to see he will be missed greatly.

    There are reports he wanted to go with the leaked news he could buy himself out and that he wanted champions league football. At 28 his stock was only going to fall.

    A good profit on an excellent servant to this club who always put in a lot of passion and effort for the cause.

    I have been pushing for us to turn over more player except Yohan our star player and replace them with players of potential. You just have to look at the wages some players are on to realise the drain they are putting on the club.

    Now is the tough part. Everyone knows we have £20+m in our back pocket!

    Always has been a question of when rather than if with cabaye. Sad to see him go but can’t really be angry with the lad for having the ambition to play at the level he’s capable of.

    Now over to you JFK (Save our Souls :|)

    Read what I said….I said I’d rather we bought somebody but if we don’t (which is likely under ashley) we need to do something.

    I’d rather play HBA then start the game with 10 men because we haven’t signed somebody.

    I’m not surprised about Cabaye – the wrting was on the wall when the PSG big cheese was in Newcastle.
    I will be gutted if we do not sign a replacement and will not accept “there was not enough time”. We’ve known for months he would be leaving and should have had replacements lined up, 1st option, 2nd option etc. – there is absolutely no excuse not to.

    Cabaye will be a huge miss as this season he was playing better than at any other stage of his career, personally I feel that was due to a combination Sissoko, Gouffran and Tiote who were so good at their roles that we could allow Cabaye a free role without the need for him to do much on the defensive side, as a result we got the best out of him, so moving on do we need a midfielder who canplay both the attacking role and the defernsive role which Cabaye could or do we look for a replacement to replace the Cabaye of this season which was as an attacking midfielder, if it’s the later then Grenier look’s ideal, his passing range and link up play are very good, he may actually be slightly better than Cabaye going forward, but obviously his defensive work is way below that of Cabaye, but with Tiote, Gouffran, Anita and Sissoko who all put in a good shift for the defence does it really matter that Grenier is not quite as good as Cabaye with that aspect of his game.

    Don’t worry man, Ashley’s reputation is likely to have spread by now.

    Even FIFA couldn’t replicate our insanity,I enjoy playing a strict budget and still getting heaps of cash. More like..

    “The deal to sell Cabaye to PSG for £20,000,000 has been finalised.

    The Board has allocated none of it to your transfer budget.”

    Why all this talk of Cabaye buying out his contract?? Loads of players have had the opportunity to do it. Gomis could have done it last summer, and then be reimbursed by us for far less than the fee due to Lyon. HBA could do the same, so we should sell him now as well? Just because one paper brings it up, doesn’t mean that the player would actually do it.

    I know of maybe 3 players that have used this, and one of them was Guttierrez to us. However when Guttierez did it a tribunal ruled we still had to pay Mallorca, so I really don’t see the big fuss on it. It is just more paper talk.

    Currently we are 8th, 12 points ahead of villa in 10th and 7 points of a champions league. Cannot see us reaching that so our “target” is to stay where we are….?!?. 9th is a possible position, but to end up below that would be an absolute disgrace

    Exactly….it never happens. Why did van persie not do it to save man utd the 24mil it cost them to buy him.

    Also as somebody pointed out yesterday if PSG were to give him 6mil to sign on (the buy out fee) then they’d need to pay him 24mil as he’d be taxed 75% on that income.

    7 points of CL so we sell our star player great isn’t it!

    The club need to step up now, a bid needs to be made today, we must have targets
    Feel Pardew is going to be hung out to dry facing the media tonight with no answers to give, then hung out again after the window
    “Mike Joe and Lee tried but just couldn’t get a deal done with so little time left in the window”

    A Clement Grenier (if he comes I want him called Grenadier) goal to cheer people up.

    Can’t blame Hawaye. He deserves to play in a CL team Clement Grenier from Lyon who is supposed to be the replacement is a very decent player but not as tenacious as hawaye.
    It won’t happen because Ashley won’t pull one on Aulas from Lyon who knows Ashley will have north of 20m to spend this week. I don’t think the Gomis saga endeared either of them to each other.
    Also means we will no doubt lose Debuchy to PSG in Summer also (he follows hawaye everywhere) as well as Rémy (Arsenal I would suspect) With Colo going back home and Krul interesting Juventus and fed up of lack of ambition that means the whole spine of the side will need to be replaced.

    Inevitable with our current set up. But look on the bright side, we will be quids in and can line the streets to enjoy the open top bus tour around the Toon with big Mike and Pards proudly parading the copy of the Toon’s consolidated accounts for 2014.

    This will give Anita and HBA (and more unlikely Marv) a chance to play more. A 4-3-3 with Tiote Anita and sissokho in middle and Remy Gouffran and HBA isn’t too bad til Summer. If they can then get Grenier & Cabella with De jong coming in this week, the rebuilding for 7th -8th place will be complete for Ashley. Maximise money without Europe.
    Healthy accounts may just tempt the next rich investor to pay Ashley what he wants to ditch us.

    it’s a real shame. I’m not huge fan of Pardew as he knows what he is getting with ashley but at the end of the day it’s awful to see the bloke constantly strung up with players going and him not getting the replacements in.

    Man utd are a different league to us but they have shown that they want to get top 4 so have spent on a top top player….we have sold our top player and don’t look like buying to replace him.

    I know we can’t spend 40mil on mata but we can buy players like de jong brothers, cabella, grenier, etc.

    I want to wish Cabaye all the best,he’s been a terrific player for us over the past couple of years and of course i’ll be sorry to see him go.He’s going home to France and he wont have to listen to the shite that oozes from the incompetant kinnear or twatty fatty ashleys gobs so in a way i cant really blame him,plus he’ll be playing C L football which lets face it is something Newcastle Utd will not be able to offer him,not under the above mentioned anyway.

    Not really sure how Saylor has walked straight back into the team ahead of MYM.

    2 of the 3 goals conceded since he’s been back were down to him. No change there then.

    TS,

    Need not feel sorry for Pardew. Perhaps he too is using us as a stepping stone. Being at NUFC has enhanced his resume.
    I suspect he will walk in around his 5th year.

    I have little sympathy for the man, he never stands up for himself or us fans…always sucks up to ashley.

    He has a decent reputation in the press now as a good manager (despite what some here think) so he would easily get another job on more money than the 400k a year here.

    It’s about time he grew a pair, said what he thought and if sacked he’s sacked, he’ll get another job.

    I think he is a player, a proper footballer,

    but , when you look at his stats over the last 2 seasons, 13 goals and 5 assists,
    it kind of shows we use our players as individuals rather than a team,

    I don’t get the sudden/re-kindled interest in Marveaux -don’t think he’s in contention.
    Don’t quite get the sympathy for Percy – asking people to believe he had no involvement/prior knowledge of the Cabaye saga -is I think a bit naive -but folk will believe what they want.
    The full pro Percy/pro Ashey Brigade -have been conspicuous by their absence apart from a couple of divvies and a horse puncher. They’ll no doubt be testing the water with their big toes before returning to spout their drivel.
    If we manage to get a signature I anticipate a couple more will appear to give it large and milk some undeserved adoration from some posters desperate for any further transfer info.
