Newcastle Player Admits Frustration On Tyneside


Mathieu Debuchy has been speaking today with the French daily L’Equipe, and he has indicated that he has been frustrated playing for Newcastle because the coach has told him to stay back.

Mathieu Debuchy – in French colors – frustrated

This is what Mathieu told the French daily L’Equipe today:

“I was a little frustrated in my first season at Newcastle because the coach asked me to stay behind, while for France the coach told me to stay high.¨

“If you do not go up enough, people will say that you do not bring enough offensively.” “And if you go up too much, they will say that you are not calm defensively.¨

“That’s why there will always be critics but I still have to make progress on some points.” “You ask me how the competing is going, if I think about playing, what I think of his game but I’m focusing first of all on me,”

“I try to give my all, Bacary too, then after this the coach will make his choice. In football, everything goes very fast.”

Whatever you do in life, you will always face criticism, sometimes severe, and you can either try to avoid it, flinch from it, ignore it, or face it full-on and toughen up because of it, and I’ve found the latter approach is the best way to go.

And the time when you don’t get criticized is the time after you have died – but it even continues after that too. 😀

And these translations from the French are difficult sometimes, and whether Mathieu meant his first season was the half season after he first arrived a year last January, or last season, is not too clear.

But generally Debuchy has been given free rein to attack down the wing, since that’s one of the best parts of his game – and he wouldn’t make a bad right winger.

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna is now playing close to his very best form, after a string of injuries over the last eighteen months, and Mathieu will need to fight it out with Sagna for that starting right back position in Brazil.

Sagna will become a free agent at the end of June, and there was some news a few days ago that Manchester City have agreed a three-year-deal with the player, which is reported to be worth around £140K/ week – which is a cool £9M a year.

Not a bad way to end you career when you are 31.

    jesper,

    I should have said. “If I can name you to Ed, giving him the inclination to carry out a few basic background checks that will see you taking the walk of shame, you may not be quite so stupidly pleased with your silly self.”

    entertainment and goals don’t get money thats the problem.

    ashley will more than likely mimic the action of the spurs owner when the season first begins.

    when i look at the way our seasons have gone in pardew era they each have lost the chance to sack pardew because every time ashley has spent money pardew has managed to do fine.

    we need to loose most of our games between augest and december next season because that will be the last we’ll see of pardew as he has wasted precious money.

    look at it this way.
    if we want debuchy to be an attacking fullback then we have absolute no choice but to get rid of HBA.
    HBA and attacking fullbacks don’t mix.

    So….. Just the containing and cautious which is Pardew’s go-to ‘style’. Thanks for confirming what we already know, Mathieu.

    Note, yet another player picking out a gripe with the coaching.

    Did Pochettino spend a £100 million? No, no he didn’t

    As I’ve stated, they identified there errors and have moved quickly to rectify them instead of continuing to stumble cluelessly around like a blind man in a furniture store
    Not me who’s the clueless one here

    BandB
    Ah yes TDS
    I’m sure he’d be saying how we could never attract Poch as he only wants clubs in Europe whilst continuing to chalk off every manager outside the top 8 in the PL as not good enough/unproven whilst at the same time saying how we couldn’t attract a top 8 manager
    “Just get behind Pardew…”
    Notice the other blogs gone very quiet after gaining a new recruit!

    how is TADS clueless? maybe you should look closer to home.

    Spurs finish 6th not deemed good enough, so they get a very good up and coming manager who guarantees great football to watch.

    We stick with a guy who has spectacularly failed in the last 2 seasons and given us s—e football to watch. Go figure……! And not just us, at WHU, Charlton etc

    Spoof

    I acknowledge Ash is the problem for appointing Pardew, but maybe he could be forgiven for thinking Pardew would make better use of the likes of MYM, Ben Arfa etc.

    Catchy is not holding anything back as he doesn’t attend games which is the obvious and only way to confront ashley

    Toonking, what about Ginola and Bez? Robert and Bernard?

    Attack can be the best form of defence if you have a team who are playing effective attacking football.

    this is a nothing story when you look at it logically !

    lille in french league where quality is less and you can attack all day with not much need for defence so all pards has done is asked him to learn how to defend and tbh it has made him a better player for it if not our best player !

    explains why french cb’s dont gel also (mbiwa/sakho) i hope mbiwa comes good as i <3'd the lad before he signed for us and was my personal no1 target before he signed but the dark side of me is saying the french lads just not cut out to be cb's

    So, let’s blame HBA for Debuchy’s statement… Guys there’s only one guy responsible for the poor football and massive general loss of form. Yea, yea when Cabs was in the team too.

    catchy is a first class tit end of, but now we are not acting like 5 year olds which we both were as I am sure you would agree, we can now debate sensibly, MYM is a mystery to me, he is quick and agile which is now needed in the PL, but he does lack concentration which is a big downside, but to no surprise he was at his best with Willo, well surprise surprise, but Willo is still shite, Mbiwa got him his standing, so why not put Saylor alongside Mbwa, Saylor good in the air, Mbiwa quick, and Saylor always is liable to weigh in with a goal or 2, so why did this not happen, PARDEW,I have always accepted his faults, never tried not too.

    But there has in fairness been some good displays and sustained good form, and it cannot be denied that those coming in were not good enough, but that’s history, its the now which is important, and what I see now is not pretty, two years without a signing is a recipe for disaster, whoever the manager is.

    My argument is, if you get rid of Pardew where will we be in 2 tears time, the chances are we may have slightly better football but we will be no better off, but we may go down as well, whereas if we got a new owner the chances are Pardew would go anyway but we would have a good chance of progressing which we currently don’t have, that is why I wish you and others would concentrate on what is important, Pardew is not important, Mike Ashley is everything but the longer you frustrate your anger at Pardew rather than Ashley then the likelier we are to stay as we are.. I’m not the villain m8, and even though I want Pardew sacked, he ain’t the villain either.

    It’s very easy to compare the two, one spends 100M trying to crack the big time, the other spend fcuk all to try and finish mid table. There, I’ve compared them and my findings are, one team has ambition and the fans onside and the other doesn’t and the fans are about to kick off.

    Davide Santon ready to commit future to Newcastle despite interest from AC Milan

    Davide Santon is ready to commit his future to Newcastle despite persistent advances from AC Milan.

    Santon’s manager Renzo Contratto says a new deal’s been tabled for the 23-year-old Italian defender to stay on at St James’s Park.

    ‘Santon is happy at Newcastle and has just been offered a new contract,’ Contratto told ASRadioRoma. ‘Other teams want him? They’re just rumours.’

    Santon has appeared 93 times for the Magpies since signing from Inter Milan in 2011 but has been the constant subject of rumours for a return to his home nation.

    Spurs onto their umpteenth manager now with Pinnochio having signed up.

    Doubtless Southampton’ll milk them dry for any of their players he wants to take with him.

    Santon is a puzzling one for me .

    Not the best defender but has a great engine and is great going forward (Although I would like him to use his left foot more and develop his final ball) .

    For me its the system we use that doesn’t play to his strengths at all . If we played like Everton with our fullbacks basically being wingers then he could thrive, but in Pardews ultra-defensive style he gets found out way too often .

    I personally would like to see Hadaira developed as our left back, As I see more potential and a position he can make his own.
    Santon although has massive potential is a strange enigma as he’s been played in multiple positions but failed to shine in any

    scout,
    I’m not sure what you mean, I pretty much say what I think everytime I post on here and I now think most people are in agreement that we are going nowhere under Mike Ashley, I don’t know why you made the comment ‘don’t make me laugh’ I think Pardew will feel the full force of a backlash unless they do something spectacular in the window and he doesn’t come out from the blocks fast, even if he does another defeat from the mackems will see him confined to his dugout.

    well considering there’s nothing to talk about as the season as finished, and pardew and Ashley are still here and to be honest it’s pointless talking about transfers at the moment what else is there to do, and those comments I’ve made was just tonight how about going over the comments I’ve made in the last couple of months.

    You must have a lot of time on your hands looking back to what I’ve been saying
