Cabella Likely To Be Dropped For Swansea Game

Remy Cabella had another poor game for Newcastle United last night, and hardly showed through at all, and he looks just too lightweight for the tough and physical Premier League.

Remy Cabella – very disappointing so far

And after scoring two good goals for Newcastle on Wednesday night at Crystal Palace, Manu Riviere also had another quiet game.

Gabby Obertan played really well after coming on in the second half, and he should start on Saturday at Swansea – probably in place of the out of form Cabella.

Alan Pardew is well aware that his job  is on the line today, and what he talked about after the game will not mean much if he’s sacked.

This is some of what Alan said after the game last night:

“We can’t keep getting beat – we have to address that.” “We’ve got to find a little bit more quality there. Our delivery let us down.”

“We’re going to need to make a couple of changes to this starting eleven.” “Cisse is not quite match fit. He showed second half he’s not quite there.”

“I’m disappointed that we’ve got beat.” “In two thirds of the pitch I felt we were good.” “The last third of the pitch is a problem for us, and we’ve got to put that right.”

“This is a team that when they take the lead don’t venture too far. They’re quick on the break, and Moses was a problem for us.”

“We’ve got to find the answer. In that final third of the pitch is where we have got to improve.” “I’ve got to give the team more options in terms of going forward.”

An easy Stoke goal from Crouch who beat Coloccini in the air after just 15 minutes to head home easily past Tim Krul,  was enough to doom Newcastle to a third defeat in six league games, and the fourth game we have failed to score in.

When you remember we struggled badly in the second half of last season, and that in the last 26 games in the Premier League, after we beat Stoke 5-1 at home last Boxing Day, we have only five wins and four draws for 19 points and 17 defeats – that’s just hopeless.

And that’s why we think Mike Ashley will call time on Alan Pardew as the Newcastle manager today.

But we’ve been wrong before.

    Still on the song theme – ‘Don’t be Cruel’

    Bet Cabella and the rest of the I comers are wondering just what the heck they’ve got into.

    Let’s hope Cabella’s the last change Pardew’ll make.

    What I could not get my head around was Pardew’s substitutions.
    we were chasing the game. Takes off Riviere and replaces him with Cisse. Thought it would of made sense in keeping Riviere on take off Goufran and bring on Cisse to play alongside Riviere and give it a go. Also I would of brought Armstrong on with 15 mins to go if still getting beat and least have a bloody go – not settling for a 1-0 nil defeat or sneaking a draw.

    Cabella has had a few crappy games so far, but I think he needs time to settle in.

    I think Pardew will get sacked after the Swansea match, following yet another defeat (probably 3-0). The question begs : how did this guy ever get the job in the first place?? It doesn’t seem to matter who will replace him – anybody is going to be better than this sh***

    To be honest dropping Cabella, Riviere, Gouffran, Sissoko & Williamson and giving others a chance would not do us any harm. With them on the pitch we are going to loose because they are poor players.The players mentioned above have done nothing this season and some have done nothing or very little the whole time they’ve been at the club.

    Awesome. One of our top summer signings is being benched after, what, 6 games? Maybe next time we should sign players not found for sale on eBay.

    Mike Ashley needs to fire Pardew so we can scream about someone else for a while.
