John Carver seems to be an upbeat guy, and after the game yesterday he enthused about how good Remy Cabella was, and certainly the Frenchman had a very good game especially in the second half, and it looks like he’s going to have a good career at Newcastle.
Remy Cabella – after just missing a difficult chance against Arsenal
It’s neck and neck for Man of the Match between Daryl Janmaat and Remy Cabella with both on around 30% of the vote.
This is what John told the Chronicle after the game:
“Remy Cabella got tired a bit towards the end but you’d expect that with the medial ligament injury he was coming back from.”
“I knew he would tire but again, he showed some flashes of skill and in the first half in particular he did something which was similar to something I saw at the training ground which I mentioned.
“He’s a huge talent.” “We’ve already talked about investing in the summer – if we invest in the right way and invest in players like him and get them around him then who knows what we can do?”
Cabella had a difficult time of things initially, but he’s come through well this year – and will only be a much better player for us next season.
And John’s right – if we can get say five good players in over the summer – and keep the good ones we already have, we could have a decent team next season.
We just hope that Mike Ashley and company have learned from their mistakes of the last two January transfer windows, which have allowed the second half of the season to become another boring nothing for the Newcastle club and the fans.
And we did so well yesterday in that second half, even though the squad has been left threadbare by the powers that be.
Let’s hope they learn from their mistakes – otherwise history will just repeat itself, as it has this January.
And with our poor form of late – four defeats in the last five games teams – other teams are starting to catch us – much like last season.
Crystal Palace have moved above us in the table, and with Everton’s win at QPR today they are now only point behind us after being 7 points behind us just two games ago.
It’s looking like we could finish in 14th place from our current 12th place – so we need to start winning some games – and we have to beat Sunderland in a couple of weeks time.
We have to get out of the Charity towards Sunderland business sooner rather than later.
