Our Man Of The Match Completely Changed The Game

We probably saw last night the best performance from Remy Cabella in a black and white shirt,  as he completely changed the game in Newcastle’s favor in the second half.

Remy Cabella – had a very good second half

Cabella was brought on for the ineffective Ayoze Perez at half time, and the young Spaniard seemed to have trouble getting to grips playing the withdrawn striker role in a 4-2-3-1 formation – and he was hardly in the game in the first half.

Remy showed skill and speed and worked his socks off in that second half, and threatened the Burnley defense along with Sammy Ameobi, who also looked very good for Newcastle.

Remy Cabella was our Man of the Match with 40% of the vote followed by the once again impressive Mehdi Abeid in midfield with 19% of the vote, and Sammy Ameobi with 12%.

With Cheick Tiote back, and Moussa Sissoko and Jack Colback to return to the side on Saturday against Chelsea,  it’s going to be interesting to see if Alan Pardew will bench Mehdi, after another very good display for Newcastle United at Turf Moor.

What would your team be for the Chelsea game – assuming Colo and Rolando Aarons are available?

    I am not the founder member of the Danny Ings fan club or anything, I was just disagreeing with your statement that he was terrible last night when clearly he wasn’t.

    I have quite liked what I have seen of him this season and Cisse is frustrating me more and more. To me, he no longer looks like a natural goal scorer.

    Thanks for the stats on Danny Ings, I think you must have accidently missed off

    Any news on Elliot’s wife’s baby?
    It slipped through his fingers due to incorrect starting position and support staff blocking his view of the flight. However he got enough on it to force a set piece which he dealt with adequately. Afterwards he was reported to have said “I would like to thank the Manager and I hope the supporters don’t expect to much for at least another few years.”

    @ 10
    Cisse has scored 28 goal in 82 PL games. Is that amazing for a experienced PL striker ?

    It is a worry when the opposition start playing their set pieces towards Williamson.

    Another thing we surely must change (and it seems to be going on for years) is our inability to get the ball into the box from corners and set-pieces. I know we are not the tallest team in the league but surely and yes it is a bit predictable, someone must put the ball into the middle of the area whilst somebody else jumps and tries to head it towards goal.

    Clearly very bad management by Pardew to play perez as a withdrawal striker role. Perez is a Winger naturally and can play as a striker as his secondly role. Mean while he had both cabella and Riviere sitting on the bench. Shows how tactically unaware Pardew is.

    Is that confidence ‘withdrawal’ striker role?

    I wasn’t against leaving Cabella on the bench, hopefully it will help focus his mind a bit. But for me and if he can stay fit, I would like to see Riviere get a bit of a run so he can be judged properly. I would like to see Perez and Riviere start together although probably not against Chelsea!

    i hope pardew doesn’t drop abeid when sissoko and colback return. he’s been the best of the lot. also it was pretty dumb playing a young kid perez out of position when he’s still getting to grips playing his normal position. hopefully pardew won’t hold it against him like he did when he played bigi as a winger in his last game then criticised him publicly.
