The two players that Newcastle fans were talking about after the 2-0 defeat against Manchester City on Sunday were Jack Colback and Remy Cabella, and not surprisingly they finished one and two respectively in our poll for Man of the Match.
Remy Cabella in action on Sunday
Jack has been little short of a revelation since he joined the club from Sunderland, and he has consistently put in some very good performances in Newcastle’s central midfield, and Jack has already shown what a good passer of the ball he is, and the Geordie hardly every gives it way.
Remy Cabella on the other hand is a skillful and creative player who can both score goals and make them, and we saw a lot of the Frenchman’s potential on Sunday, enough to have Newcastle fans buzzing about our new French midfielder.
And Alan Pardew already is a big fan of Cabella and had this to say about the 24 year-old today:
“Remy is gifted with the ball. He can manoeuvre his body very quickly. He can move your weight and then take you the other way fast, and therefore it makes him difficult to mark and defend against.”
“And he will be a player who will open the door for us, hopefully on many occasions.” “He will create or score goals. He’s the type of player to excite our fans.”
Remy had a good game on Sunday on his debut and he will only get better as he gets used to the defenses in the Premier League.
We lost a very skillful and creative player in Yohan Cabaye in January, and Cabella will provide us with a lot of that this season, although it still remains to be seen if Newcastle will being in a gifted central humidifier this summer, and at the moment with only 12 days left in the transfer window, that looks doubtful.
