Cabaye Is Not A Good Player For PSG

We had an article out yesterday on Yohan Cabaye’s dissatisfaction with his lot at PSG, where he finds it difficult to get many games at the Paris club, and at 28 years old he’s in the prime of his career, so it’s not really surprising that he’s frustrated to not be playing enough back in his country of birth.

Yohan Cabaye – while at Newcastle United

And selling Cabaye for about £20M last January is one of the things that has caused Newcastle United o basically collapse this year, and we are now 3rd bottom of the Premier League after our first seven league games – and the Frenchman still hasn’t been replaced on Tyneside. 🙁

Yohan is worried about his lack of starts at PSG, and today French journalist Daniel Riolo has weighed in on the situation, and criticized Laurent Blanc for buying Cabaye from Newcastle.

This is what he said o le10Sport:

“In the last transfer window, was it a good idea to buy Cabaye?” “They spent how much on Cabaye? Twenty million? What does he bring?

“I’m not saying he’s a bad player, instead Cabaye is a good player but is he is for PSG? Bah no! A guy like Leonardo would never have bought players like Cabaye or Aurier.”

Yohan still talks very fondly about his 30 months on Tyneside, and while it was a bit tongue in cheek when we suggested that Yohan could maybe come on loan to Newcastle in January, if he doesn’t get more playing time by then – that could be a possibility.

Yohan is probably questioning his move to PSG now, but it’s always a risk when you join a club bigger than Newcastle, and there are quite a few of those clubs nowadays.

They have better players, and it’s always a challenge to get games, however good you may be.

What do you think?

    The quotes from the king were indeed made last week they’ve just been rehashed by the echo. Slightly more about us being a big scalp but nonetheless still the same. Can’t really blame ed as he just collates the most recent news stories pertaining to NUFC.

    A loan move would benifit us and Cabaye, perhaps even PSG. He is a good player but he was never very consistent. I guess that’s what you get under Pardew…

    Yeah, The PR team are in full swing, to be honest and what is spewing from the jaws of the club is at time sickening.

    A little bit of truth and a future plan of what is intended would go a long way to reassure the fans.

    Instead we get repeated lame excuses of how badly done to our manager is, and how we the fans should be ashamed of ourselves.

    The whole show is pathetic, Jabba, the inept one and the bishop should be on their knees in the centre of SJP begging the fans for forgiveness. But as I have said before their is more chance of the Titanic docking in New York.

    Yeah how could we dare compete with the readings and Sunderlands with players like






    Hide all you want behind Ashley this that and the other but at the end of the day just admit we have a totally s—e and very weak manager.

    mind you does Wenger want another centre midfielder and does he shift someone out. Price is also a factor in Wengers thinking but not insurmountable – witness Ozil.

    Perhaps he might see it’s time to move out the welsh wizard. If so Pardew might be in with a chance of getting him they being good mates and all.

    If we did snag him back on loan it would give us a LOT of options… like this for instance..

    Janmaat – Colo – Willo – Haidara
    Obertan – Cabaye – De Jong – Aarons

    Possible Bench players:

    Elliot, Sissoko, Cabella, Riviere, Ameobi, Perez, Colback, Gouffran, Ferreyra, Raylor, Saylor, Dummett, Armstrong

    The competition between players and ability to change it up with substitutions suddenly increases dramatically with just the adding of Cabaye. That squad doesn’t look half bad to be honest (apart from the defence).

    Ashley is gunning for the current board at Ibrox…He’s making his move and if he’s had to make his move earlier than he anticipated and therefore has to ditch NUFC earlier than anticipated then something could very well be in the offing.

    here’s hoping 🙂

    On Cabaye……I reckon next season he will end up back at Lille and his place in the french team will be gone.

    On Sameobi…..This kid is deceptive and worth keeping especially if he improves. He will be needed in the championship next season.

    On Ashley….Despite his recent press admissions regarding keeping the club until the end of next season, the fact that another consortium is about to effect a takeover at Ranger, he may have no alternative but to sell NUFC as soon as possible if he wants to “head them off at the pass” so to speak.

    Why oh why would Cabaye want to come back here?
    If he goes anywhere it will be to 1 of the many bigger clubs than us.Palace,Stoke,Southampton,Hammers,Weat Brom ,QPR.ETC.ETC.
    Not to mention the big 6 who are on a different planet to us.
    Sad ..
