Cabaye Still Hoping For First Team Place At PSG


Yohan Cabaye has still not seen too much first team action at PSG, since he was signed in January for about £20M from Newcastle United, and the Paris based club shortly will find out what punishment they will receive as one of the big spending clubs who have not met the UEFA Financial Fair Play Rules over the last three seasons.

Yohan Cabaye – PSG reserve so far

But Cabaye ii s still hoping that next season he will be able to be a starter for the team, and he had this to say to the French Press:

“I want to settle permanently in the team and I will work hard for it to happen. For me, next season will be very important.”

The 28-year-old has made 20 appearances for PSG so far with one goal,  but of those only seven have been starts for the Paris side.

At least at the moment the three central midfield berths at PSG are held by Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi, and Yohan is hoping he can force his way into the side next season.

And to think he could have started every game for Newcastle this year, if only he had stayed – but it was not to be.

And it’s interesting that Manchester City and PSG are likely to be the Champions of their countries this season, while at the same time they will be punished by UEFA – because they have failed to meet the UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules over the last three seasons.

If the FFP is to mean anything at all, those punishments handed out by UEFA President Michel Platini need to be harsh – otherwise they will simply continue spending enormous sums of money (they don’t have) on their players – which is the only reason they have been successful over the last few years.

Comments welcome.

    Never mind, at least we’ve still got a chance of signing Andy Carroll. Will be a good partner for strolla, our 1st-choice ‘striker’….. and with Demba Ba on left wing……

    “What is a club in any case?”

    “Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.

    It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.”

    “It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.”

    “It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

    Bobby Robson.
    Has anyone read this at the side of the page. Its time we got behind our (Yes thats OUR) team and supported our team. A couple of hundred walk out of a game where there were 50000 supporters and they are claiming success ive seen more leave 10 minutes before the end of the famous 5-1 derby game to avoid the rush. Have a word with yourselves guys if you are a toon fan you are in it through good and bad and it doesnt matter who the owner is or the manager or who plays or what division we are in we support our team. Where would we be as a country if our soldiers said naw dont fancy that battle much. They follow their team thats what armies do but not it seems certain factions of the toon army

    Tabuk, on last thread.

    Pardew has had unbelievably low abuse in previous ganes yet he shoukd have gone after the Reading home game a year and a half ago.

    We’ve been made to put up with it for far too long. It is unacceptable. Look at the bigger picture. Although Ashley needs to go, a shorter term remedy is for our clueless and chancer of a manager to go first.

    Crystal Palace fans would be sending out a different vibe if they had Pardew in charge I’m sure. Just like the Charlton and West Ham fans all booed him as well. No coincidence that the same is happening here.

    Tabuk, a couple of hundred? You musn’t have been round near the ground then. Try thousands. That’s just who left. I was one of them that left in order to make a visual point. Loads in the ground were still booing and chanting after the 69th minute, so stay or go there are a lot more than a couple of hundred.

    Enough of the clueless football, lies, touchline disgraces. Ashley out, Pardew out.

    Cabaye is a TOP CLASS player and he will be in the first squad for sure especially because PSG has already reach his maximum in world football and now is time in the future this club to lose a race with stronger leagues in the world.Simply France is not a place for extreme football club progress.

    Tabuk, if you put your head in the sand and clap like a seal at the way the mediocrity is a capped goal, then how is that wanting what is best for the club?

    How is acceptance of mediocrity a good thing? In the bigger picture it could be argued that is what you are indeed supporting.

    A poor fun of form is one thing, employing a sacked league one manager and keeping him there is another thing.

    Still say Palace are shite with a shite manager Stoke are Shite with a Shite manager Hull are Shite with a Shite Manager Cardiff are shite with a shite chairman listen to their fans they sing about their team with pride even though they are not happy. If all you want is success follow Man city their club doesn’t belong to them any more but they win things maybe that would keep you happy rotunda although i suspect you’d whinge about the pies at St James’s

    3 of the teams you have mentioned were recently promoted and there fan base was enjoying every minute

    Hull? Hull have been protesting all season as have Cardiff, Hull also have a cup final to look forward to
    As for Stoke, there revelling in a new style adapted surprisingly by Mark Hughes, who they bought in due to fan unrest over the direction of the club under Pulis and celebrating there highest league finish
    Palace are the ultimate Yo Yo team when they get promotion, they have been in party mode since securing there PL status and have plenty to shout about

    Tabuk, that is the only time I’ve left a game early and it was to make a point. I made sure I helped the Pardew booing and songs as much as possible all game prior to that.

    He should not be employed here to start with and his daily lies I take as an insult, along with his disgraceful antics on the touchline and the things off the pitch I know about.

    He is a disgrace.

    I’ve sat/stood there and given my vocal support when everyone is silent on many many games and under many a dross manager. They were let go once they were shown up. This guy is still there.

    When the manager is employed to be a fan buffer and puppet to Ashley whilst he makes money on the back of advertising is not on and fans will be vocal about it.

    Ashley and Pardew are beyond a joke and it’s unacceptable. A stand is needed to be made in whatever way fans feel it necessary to do so. Inside the ground or outside.

    the grass isn’t always greener, Cabaye has gone from being a cert for Brazil possibly as captain to someone who may actually miss out all together, he should have stayed with us until the summer to safe guard his World cup place, silly lad, he should have learnt from Demba Ba who has also struggled badly due to not being as good as we made them look.

    But then again, they rightly believe in themselves that they can play for a more successful club. So fair enough, let them try. A least they’re ambitious enough to give it a shot.

    we do have players coming in next season !

    abied who tbf i would get excited for if he wasnt ours and we was linked with.
    cambell 2 goals 1 assist in scotland from 10 part games so surely he’s got to be 3rd/4th choice striker to breed him into prem life if he makes it.
    rolando will 100% make the step up next season you can just look at some players and not have a doubt they can cope with prem life.
    good’s time has come to play prem footy also.
    tav has improved immensly and will be great rb cover.
    ferg/vukic i’m still not sure on.

    raylor/shola/ober/marv are imo no use and those i listed would be more use to us ! gosling has been the most use but then again abied now looks 3 times the player.

    then theres my old fave bigi who’s found form again and become his own player with his box to box play and not a bad creative pass and shot also.

    arma again worth a 3rd/.4th slot.

    so get dead wood out and get us 2 main strikers a cb and some creative players for the main team.

    LR, very true m8 but I was really surprised when Cabaye did leave as he was doing so well that it was a good chance that he would have been captain in Brazil, surely it must have crossed his mind that by joining in January there was a good chance that he would be on the bench which would have put his place in doubt, very very foolish, he wrecked our season due to disintergrating morale and he has possibly lost out on captaining his country in a World cup finals.

    Players move clubs and they only have short careers so that window of opportunity to play for successful clubs may never appear again. If they move, that’s just the way it is. Succeed or fail. I have no real problem with that.

    LR, there’s ambition and then there is stupidity, how many of us were saying before he left that he had timed it wrong and it could back fire on him with regard’s to the World cup, it’s easy to critisize with the benefit of hindsight, but there were many people saying it before he left, as I say, there is ambition but then again there is stupidity, it was the same with Ba, he was told unteen times that he would be a bench warmer at Chelsea

    tbf to cabaye he owes us nothing and should rightly be more loyal to a french club than us !

    he gets more money champs league footy and is nearer his family (even if he doesnt play he would not have won medals to show his kids at our team but he has a lot better chance at psg even if he doesnt play)

    same with demba i didnt blame him for leaving either as both players helped us immensely and gave us a profit also.

    i have no idea also !

    to me it looks like arma is a lot better player but cambell has more presence.

    either given a decent run of full games should have a decent ish scoring record though but i wouldnt cry if they dot hit it off i their 1st season.

    Spoof, an point could also be made that he is now training with a better squad of players and there will be leniency in his early progress and minutes on the pitch.

    Again, players can be confident. They have got where they are in football from being successful to an extent. They’re bound to be optimistic about a move.

    It’s a shame he’s gone, but when he and Remy are carrying the team, maybe he just wants proper team-play going on around him and positive football.

    croftus, I totally agree m8, he does deserve better than us and the move as you rightly say did make sense, but I honestly do feel that he would have been better off delaying it, I and many thought and said that at the time, if he had joined in the summer all he would have lost out on would have been 2/3 CL games and a Championship medal which he will probably look at and feel he was not a part of the side which won as he wasn’t part of it, the chances are he would have got one next season anyway so to me I feel that he has lost out, however as you say he owes us nothing, that is not what I was meaning, but I do feel he owed himself the chance to possibly Captain his country at the World cup, that has got to be a great honour which he has now possibly missed, when it comes to owing Newcastle anything I don’t think any of the players do including Debuchy and especially Tiote who I hope does move to a better club as I genuinely feel that he deserves better than what he gets from us.

    I don’t blame any player for leaving if there going to play champions league football
    cabs has 20 appearance’s for psg so will prob get a winners medal and he has played in the quarters of the champs league

    at the end of the day a footballers career is relatively short so most will go where the cash is unfortunately that is not us

    If the 20 million is used for 2 super talented young forwards (big IF) then good. He is not as good as some think. He often lost the MF to better players and he was often part of dismal displays AND he wanted out, to the point of coercion (so I don’t use a heavier term).

    On AP, I do feel for the man, as a person. I can’t even imagine what abuse from 50,000 can do to you. But, unfortunately, it seems certain that he can’t take the club forward. Maybe he’d do well at a Crystal Palace.

    I don’t think he has harmed his chances in going
    , Deschamps insists he is not overly concerned by Cabaye’s lack of match action.

    “I would have preferred Cabaye to have more minutes under his belt, and that goes for him too of course, but I’m not worried,” he said

    loris is down as there captain so I dint know wheather cabs had the chance of getting that

    Comment #36

    beermonkey, last season I felt sorry for Tiote as I felt his only problem was that he was trying to hard, for long spells both Cabaye and Ben Arfa were both out and then as we have seen again since Cabaye left without them we have no creativity in the side, Tiote knew this and I thought that he was trying to win the ball and also be creative as well as he knew we had nobody else who could create, 10 out of 10 to him for effort and desire but sadly ball winning is his game and due to trying too much his game suffered, this time around we had Cabaye in an advanced role and playing the best football of his Newcastle career, as a result Tiote reverted back to what he does best which he is superb at, however, the longer the season went on the more rash challenges and the more bookings he got, but again in a side without anyone capable of creating he was again trying a bit too much, give Tiote the armband with a creative midfielder alongside or in front of him then he is superb.

    beermonkey, if it hasn’t hampered him then he is a very lucky young man, the better footballing nations do seem to insist that a player is a regular for there side before they are considered for their country, not every game as it is now a squad game, but Cabaye has only been used over the last few games when the title was already won, I hope he does go and start every game for France, but it’s not a gimme for him, I would say Debuchy is a better bet for a starting place.

    Andy i’m not winding anyone up just trying to say you support your team whatever I work with guys from all over the UK and in general they laugh at Toon fans. They think we are a top club with fans who are just moaners. and by the way Laurent we are only in our 3rd season baxk in the Prenier we have had one good season 5th One season where we did alright in Europe but struggled in the league (not the first team to do that) and this year we are looking at a top ten finish which is what the manager was targeted to do. If your boss sets you a target and you achieve it id imagine you would feel hard done by gettin sacked.
