Cabaye And Sissoko Gave Me Good Advice – Join Newcastle

Remy Cabella talked to some of his French team-mates during the World Cup in Brazil over the summer, and they said they helped him to decide he wanted to join Newcastle United – and the two that seemed to help him the most were Yohan Cabaye and Moussa Sissoko.

Newcastle United Unveil New Signing Remy Cabella

Remy Cabella – they gave nothing but good advice

Yohan Cabaye has turned out to be very positive about Newcastle United since he signed on at PSG – and maybe he realizes that his move to Newcastle was the best career move he made – as it eventually made him a starter for the French side, and he improved greatly in the short 30 months he was on Tyneside.

We hope the very same thing happens with Remy Cabella – but that he stays with Newcastle long term – because we cannot keep losing our best players.

This is what Cabella has said about Yohan and Moussa Sissoko in the Chronicle today:

“They gave nothing but good advice, this helped me to decide where I wanted to be and where I wanted to put my feet.” “I am proud to be here and really looking forward to getting started.¨

“It was very important for me because it will help me to integrate. To know the team and to know all the players will help us to develop together.¨

“Learning English is something that I’m looking forward to doing with my teammates, it will help me talk to everyone and not just the French players.”

And Cabella got his first Newcastle start today in the game in Germany against Malaga FC  – which we lost 3-1 and Remy played the first half.

And now we have another tough game against Schalke 04 tomorrow afternoon, and Cabella will also likely start that game out on the right wing, and we could see Dutchmen Tim Krul, Daryl Janmaat and Siem de Jong also start that game.

    Yes good shop window at NUFC. Always open for business!


    with respect Colo and Saylor are not kids.

    This whole match just smacked of the 14 out of the last 19 games we lost last season.

    First half not one shot on goal as a mediocre Spanish team ran rings round us with their passing and movement.

    I don’ t think Pardew will ever get that just standing off people defensively and hoping to scrape something every game isn’t going to work, just like the braindead set pieces to Willo.

    Never hated an NUFC manager as much as I hate Pardew . He is a horrible person as well as a shocking manager . The polar opposite to Sir Bobby .

    What we learned today is that Sissoko is no winger, Collo & Taylor are possibly our worst CB pairing and Colback is nothing more than squad filler .

    Team for City should be:




    —HBA—————-De Jong—————-Cabella—


    Ideally I would like another CB to pair M’biwa, Quality striker and Grenier as well but I can’t see that happening in a million years under Ashley .

    I normally don’t get to vexed about preseason games but that was pathetic and the biggest concern was; the overall performance was typical of last seasons shambles.
    Players isolated in possession and defensively. Ponderous passing and zero movement off the ball. No sustained attacks with no real chances created. Malaga could have played without a keeper.
    It’s a bit disingenuous of Pardew to blame the lack of experience as the reason for the poor first half because it was simply a rerun of everything that was wrong last season.

    But he did habe kids up front, who were inefective. You know as well as anyone that an inefective front line puts more pressure on the defence. I agree his tactics are too negative for nufc, but if you ask someone to be honest, and shoulder responsibility, it becomes rediculous to tear into them when they do it.

    I agree that after 4 years I still haven’t got a clue what Pardew’s game plan is other than to defend (badly) and hope Remy/Ba/Cisse will score a goal .

    Imagine a manager that had us set up to sit back and counter attack with pace, players like Sissoko,HBA, Cabella & Rivierre would be deadly in that set up .
