Newcastle have shown some good character in our last two games, and the hope is that we can continue that fighting form at Stoke City and even get a win on Monday night- it’s possible.
Remy Cabella – time for this man to start delivering
But that will mean some of our more important and expensive players will need to start coming through for us, and one of them is Remy Cabella, who has seemed to frail and far too willing to fall flat on his face, when challenged by players in the Premier League.
Both Papiss Cisse and Manu Riviere have come through for Newcastle big time over the last two games, and both have scored two goals each in their last games.
Pardew has said it is now time for Remy Cabella to start delivering:
“It’s important for us.” “We spent a lot of money on Cabella, and he hasn’t really delivered.” “It is difficult for him and Riviere to carry those shirts at this club.”
“Papiss Cisse and Siem de Jong have more experience. And they have both been missing – I feel sorry for them to a degree.”
Remy Cabella cost us anywhere between £7M and £12M, depending on which reports you believe, and he has to toughen up. so we hope he has been doing some strength work in the gym.
And it will be interesting to see what team Alan Pardew starts on Monday night, but he could do a lot worse than start Adam Armstrong in the number 10 role as the withdrawn striker in the 4-2-3-1 formation.
Adam showed on Wednesday night he can add both creativity and skill to Newcastle going forward, and he had two assists in his very first start for Newcastle – not too bad at all.
