Pardew – Please Sort Out Yohan Cabaye’s Future

Saturday, August 24th, 2013 · 473 Comments

We may be setting the bar really low at the moment, but we were pleased Newcastle didn’t end up on the losing side today, although Gouffran missed an absolute sitter with one minute to go in added time, but that would have given Newcastle a lucky win today – but we would have taken it. 😀

Saturday, August 24th, 2013 · 78 Comments

There are reports in France that French Champions PSG are readying a £17M (€20M) offer for Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye, who missed the second game of the season for Newcastle today – and we assume Newcastle will dock his wages for missing the first two games of the season – or fine him – or both.

Newcastle’s Gouffran Misses Last Minute Sitter In 0-0 Draw

Saturday, August 24th, 2013 · 56 Comments

Newcastle drew this game 0-0, but Geordie fans will be asking how Yoan Gouffran didn’t score from four yards out two minutes into injury time, as a beautiful cross come shot from Sammy Ameobi came off the inside of the far post, to the Frenchmen, but he somehow managed to to poke the ball over the bar from one yard out – an unbelievable late miss by Newcastle that could have brough us a very welocme 3 points.

Continued Cabaye Disruption Could Cost Newcastle Today

Saturday, August 24th, 2013 · 171 Comments

Moussa Sissoko can play as a box-to-box midfielder, so that if Yohan Cabaye again refuses to play for Newcastle this afternoon (that will not be good), then Moussa will get a chance to show what he can do in that position.
