It’s Been A Slow Burn – But He’s Coming Through


We all saw Remy Cabella make a big impression on Tuesday night in that second half at Burnley and the popular opinion is that he was the one that changes the game in Newcastle’s favor in the second half at Turf Moor.

Remy Cabella at Turf Moor on Tuesday

Cabella’s form on Tuesday night should get him a start on Saturday, but usually Pardew has preferred Yoan Gouffran over the last few games – probably because his work rate and willingness to track back and Gouffran could start on Saturday – as he did on Tuesday night.

The Newcastle manager has been taking the plaudits for reading that first half correctly and bringing on Steven Taylor and Remy Cabella almost worked to perfection, but we just couldn’t get the win.
This is Pardew said today about the French International:

“I know with Cabella there is a marvelous technical ability. He is learning what the Premier League is all about.”  

“He really made a big impression. And that’s fantastic news for us and him.” “It’s been a slow burn for Remy, but he changed this game for us.”

Remy had a half chance to score on Tuesday night but his shot was blocked by a Burnley defender, but his first goal for Newcastle – when it comes – will give him some extra confidence.

But it does look that Remy Cabella is starting to adjust to the physical play in England, after making 14 appearances so far this season for Newcastle.

Maybe Remy can get his first goal for Newcastle against the league leaders on Saturday – and at home too.

We hope so.

    Still worries me that this guy was bought as a winger.

    Him and De Jong will always be in competition

    Just as long as everybody accepts he is new to the EPL and will have off days as well. I would start him every game.

    I voted win for us, some one is going to beat them at some point so it might as well be us.

    Might even be the day they get a hammering, or is that a bit too optimistic. 🙂

    Cabella learned from Premier League.What are you talking about?.Cabella is a natural born class of player.Chelsea game will show that probably.Talented football players are rare today.Cabella is one of them.Everybody else is kind of football machines.Run,run,run.And nothing else.

    On the Costa subject if I was Pardew I would be telling my players to have a niggle with him as he is susceptible to lashing out and lucky not to have walked this season ! Having said that backed him at 7-1 with paddy power to be top prem scorer and get £2 free bet every time he scores and up over £100 with them
