Remy Cabella has looked good in the games he has so far played for Newcastle in pre-season, and he has scored two very good opportunist goals, and the French International 24 year-old is fast becoming a crowd favorite on Tyneside.
Remy Cabella - after scoring against Huddersfield on Tuesday
And of course all our pre-season games so far have been away from home – sometimes far away from home as in Germany and New Zealand – so we expect a good crowd for our home game against Spanish club Real Sociedad on Sunday afternoon – which has a 1:30 pm kick-off.
This will be the first time our new signings will have played at St, James’ Park, and this is what Remy Cabella told the Shields Gazette today:
“St James’ Park is a special stadium.” “I think it’s unique – I don’t think I’ve seen a stadium like it.”
“I’m really looking forward to hearing the atmosphere and getting on the pitch. It will give me a lot of pleasure to play here.”
St. James’ Park and the fact Newcastle sell out the stadium in most home games, is a big draw to players looking to join Newcastle – it’s a tremendous stadium, and when we were in Newcastle in July, we noticed how well the stadium is kept – it looked just fantastic.
And in a couple of years time when all the improvements are made at the Benton training grounds, that should be a second big attraction for players looking to join Newcastle.
But what the team has to do now is challenge again for a top six position in the league – and that’s what we are hoping will happen next season – which is a critical season for both the club and for manager Alan Pardew – who is now under a lot of pressure to deliver results.
A couple of good players added to the squad before the end of the transfer window could give us a very good squad, and certainly stronger than last season.
