This Newcastle Player Will Come Good On Tyneside

Remy Cabella is going through a tough transition that many other players coming into the Premier League experience, when they try to get to grips with the more physical nature of the Premier League.

Remy Cabella – needs more time to adjust

Lots of good players find it tough initially, but come through to be excellent players in the Premier League, and we’re confident that Remy Cabella will be one of those players.

The lad seems to have the right attitude and in the Chronicle today sources close to Cabella have said he has not been too upset by being dropped for the game at Swansea last week, and he apparently also went through a difficult period a couple of years ago when he had some big critics in France, questioning whether he could make it three.

The news is that Remy is spending time in the gym to build up his physique, and that to us is one of the main things he needs to do – that and not fall to the ground every time he gets a physical challenge.

But more games played in the Premier League will see him get used to the more physical game in England, and he’s also changing his game a little, and being more direct in his approach play.

The news on the training ground is that Cabella is still showing all his skills and form, but when it comes to the Premier League it goes missing.

It’s doubtful Remy will start the home game against Leicester City a week on Saturday, but he could get an outing in the second half, and we’re sure the Newcastle fans will give him all their support.

We still think this lad can become an excellent player for Newcastle, he just needs some time to adjust.

Certainly his attitude seems first class.

    Why is anyone shocked Cabella is not steeling in .

    This is what happens when you buy attacking players and then play them in defensive set ups .

    Is it any wonder players suddenly do better when they leave NUFC or look great for their national team, yet look a shadow of themselves under Pardew ? .

    I agree that foreign players take time adapting to the lack of time before they are being challenged and that Cabella is making a name for himself of being easily pushed of the ball. However whilst he is good at stealing the ball, his position in his previous team gave him more space with which to carry the ball forward into the final quarter. AP is again making a naturally gifted attacking player provide defensive cover and in so doing run out of energy, or become weaker in the later stages of the match.

    When a side leaks as many goals as Nufc do its always going to be a long season, giving the opposition goals head start will result in relegation every time.

    Cabella hasn’t shown anything that indicates he’s a top player, in fact when he’s been dropped we’ve won and drawn games.

    Big Cisse – The number of players who have left NUFC and failed miserably far exceeds those leaving and succeeding. Mbiwa is an exception where as Cabaye, Ba, Guthrie, Nzogbia, Nolan, Carroll, Bassong, Barton they are all the rule.

    How much players like Cabella are expected to defend will vary but I don’t believe there is a team in PL that carry’s luxury players. I am not thinking just of your Stoke or Leicester ‘s ( no offence to theose hard working sides) but even your attacking sides like Man U, City, L’pool etc. It is now a cliche that you defend from the front but none the less true notwithstanding it’s over-use.

    PL is a faster, harder, no time to dwell league ( not saying better) than France Spain and Italy which catches many players out even if they think they are ready for it.

    Have to say I was impressed with his debut against Man City but not so much thereafter. Can’t rule out the impact of all the off-field furore on different players either ( not saying it’s fans fault) but the game isn’t played in a vacuum.

    Still expecting rather than hoping he will come good but time will tell.

    I wonder ?
    Does anyone out there think that Bishop, the new PR buffer, actually reads the NUFC social media stuff on a daily basis.
    If we feel he does -I do- perhaps one of our better wordsmiths amongst us might like to pen a regular open letter to him ?

    Cabella is far too light weight for the premier leage andd always will be.
    It always made me wonder why so many people wanted him in the first place.

    Strange how things turn around, Gabby being one of our best players now. At least he’s willing to put a shift in.

    Unfortunately for an attacking midfielder/winger i am yet to see him actually take his defender on. He does a few step overs when no one is marking him, which looks great but is highly ineffective, then when he gets closed down, he sh1ts himself and loses all confidence in his attacking ability. Save the step overs for when you are gonna take someone on.

    Pardew gets rid of Benny because he’s not the type of player he likes and then buys a Benny type player in Cabella and drops him before the ink’s dry on his contract. Incredible bad management.

    The Mbiwa acquisition and departure is more of the same. This club is so badly managed it’s only going one way.

    mecannylad @ 14 – if they are doing their job properly, I would expect them to be reading all the blogs, several times a day, simply to enable them to guage the feelings of the various Fan groups.

    At least they would no that we consider the team to be very lightweight, the manager a complete tosser and the owner is simply despised.

    Other than that, all is rosy!!!

    “If they are doing their job properly …” If people at the club did their job properly, there wouldn’t be any need to check out the blogs. They don’t do their jobs properly and I can’t see them thinking it necessary to check out any blogs.

    Interesting thought but can’t help feeling that even if he does dip in now and again or have his team trawl through the various blogs how much attention would he pay to something we may think top notch. After all Ashley has set his agenda and calls the tune. His brief is probably how to combat the grief not to give way in the slightest.

    Also iven the no of posts on just one of Ed’s threads how would you guarantee that the hard work required not to blow what might be a one-off isn’t completely missed. An open letter from someone here would remain one opinion however well worded.

    After all the Blog is not intended to be a cooperative and we fight amongst ourselves most days 🙂 How would some sort of concensus and re-writes be worked through and over what timescale.

    Jfa made a valid point to me the other day that (certainly as things now stand) The Mag is the place for essay’s.

    My own view is ( not to in the slightest detract from the vitality and intelligence shown here) to suggest that NUFC.Com carries a lot more weight than here.

    Niall and Biffa who run that site ( never knowingly met either) are IMO masters at sensing and cogently expressing the thrust of the fan’s moods ( not that they claim to). They can be serious, funny and often give NUFC and officials a bloody nose by well argued observations.

    Sorry for the advert but the more I think about it they being a different animal are in prime position for such a task. Years ago an NUFC official admitted he went to that site and not the clubs own if he wanted as up to date info as he could get on the net.

    No doubt someone will tell me that is an urban myth but I still like to believe it .

    He is already coming good, before being dropped, he was in the top 3 players in the Premier league for creating chances. If you play one upfront, don’t blame your creative player if he is creating chances but nobody is around to do anything with them.

    Rolando Arrons is the player whom could outshine Cabella this season provided Pardew allows him game time.

    Aarons is our best player imo. He’s the key to our season turning around. I don’t think Pardew realises that though.

    I hope you’re right about Aarons. It’s far too soon for me to judge him on a handful of decent displays. I remember Chris Waddle on his debut at SJP. A guy near me was saying “Get him off. He’s shit.” I knew immediately the kid was a class act.

    The chances are that this PR outfit are actually a “Professional” outfit, which means they will probably do their job in a Professional manner.

    NUFC management are a bunch of chancers who wouldn’t understand the term “Professional” even if somebody tattoo’d it across their forehead!!!

    Yeah remember the Waddler. Great times with him Beardsley etc. Take it the guy near you was one where whatever view he took you couldn’ t help but believe the complete opposite. I believe in later years he sat just in front of me in the Gallowgate .

    If you can do passing and moving correctly you don’t have to rely on physical presence as much.

    That is the worst part of our our game, so Cabella will then dwell on the ball because there aren’t enough options around him and he gets out muscled which makes him look bad.

    Some people will pick on that as the ‘problem’, yet his physical attributes are secondary to a properly organised and well coached team. Ours is not.

    Which is why we have a pre-historic manager with an outdated mindset compared to our continental players who have been brought up learning a much more intelligent system of play.

    Dinosaurs out.
