Didier Deschamps has named his latest squad and included new boy Remy Cabella and Moussa Sissoko, though the word in France is that Cabella may have missed out if it hadn’t been for injury to Arsenal’s Giroud

France will play against Spain on home soil on Thursday 4th September before traveling to Serbia for a game on Saturday 6th September.

remy cabellaBoth matches are of course friendlies with France hosting the 2016 European Championships, so having no competitive matches to play as qualifiers.

In addition to the two United players, Deschamps has also kept faith with the three NUFC ‘old boys'; Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy.

Supposed Newcastle target Lacazette also makes the squad.

A good day for Newcastle new boys with Jack Colback being named earlier for England.

Gardiens: Mandanda, Lloris, Ruffier

Défenseurs: Debuchy, Digne, Evra, Koscielny, Mangala, Sagna, Sakho, Varane

Milieux: Cabaye, Matuidi, Mavuba, Pogba, Schneiderlin, Sissoko

Attaquants: Benzema, Cabella, Griezmann, Lacazette, Rémy, Valbuena

Can anybody name one other club where the coach has no say in transfers in or out and yet the club are successful? Start with the EPL and then include other leagues.

Cant see Carver getting the job. The club will talk to him and ask if he is happy working as Mclarens number two and we all know what the answer will be. So we will have a number one and a number two running or ruining our club. The only way is down.

Thank goodness that normal service is resumed and Cashley and Charnley revert back to type. Just when we thought a move for Vieira might change things, the ray of hope dissipates into darkness again. At least the number of fans deluded by Cashley during his Sky Sports interview, might regain their senses. Cashley, has been in charge for 8 years and a leopard does not change its stripes. Unfortunately, some supporters believed the crap he filled them with. I'd be surprised if 'yes man' Carver doesn't get the post now, with 'one time' heroes Beardsley and Moncur continuing to be part of the clan who sniff along after him.

So the bottom line is that he didn't get the job because he wanted a say in the players he wanted to work with. Wouldn't anybody want that? Hope Vieira told them where to go. This club have got to be the biggest joke for years. They have no plan at all. It makes you wonder exactly what the words of Ashley actually meant. Ashley out!

So there is the possibility its going to be Carver.When he filled in for Pardew when he was banned, his record was similar to this past season. Crap.Forget about Vieira, Garde, and Laudrup. Who were among the so called 80 applicants.Just 1 of them must be better than Carver.

Disgrace!!! He's had his chance. The preperation for next seasons boycotts and protest campaign should start NOW. Do not believe a word that comes out of NUFC until the fat slime is gone.

Short of Ashley selling up our only other hope of something different is Carr retiring. It's clear that Ashley is leaving the big football decisions to him and surprise, surprise his mate McClaren is getting the job. I don't think we'll be relegated, we may even finish in the top half next season, but long term this is just steadying the ship so Ashley can bank the TV money.

I really cannot understand how anyone can blame Ashley for the pathetic plight of the club, it is his nature to make money that is ALL. The blame lies firmly at the feet of the people who attend home games, no one else's, they give the man the money he craves and that is mission accomplished in his view. Nothing will change under his ownership...it cannot as he does not know how to change from making money. NUFC is a perfect vehicle for his money making needs, stupid customers who will watch anything that's put in front of them time and again year in year out, with minor complaint. Just answer me this, why would he change??? Three years in the Championship he still gets T.V moneyand S.T revenue while the club bleeds to death by the hands of its own supporters. Irony complete. He hates NUFC supporters and gets paid for putting the boot in, must be so comforting for him.

@ArtyH agree with everything you say Arty apart from the first bit. It is Fat cnuts fault 100% because he could have ran it as a football club with aspirations and still made a load of money. He decided to run it as a tat club. The rest I agree with.

@v0ices @ArtyH  Its such a shame we all ( apart from the owner ) want the same thing.. success for the club but go about it differently. I would hate for the club to end up like Leeds or Portsmouth, but if thats what it takes MAYBE its the way forward. I fear dark days ahead with no change and no ambition, what a prospect eh? Another wasted year, I'm running out of them at my age, what chance a good cup run? Oh yes NONE.

@ArtyH Cannot argue really its the people attending the games who have allowed him to do what he wants all that we can hope is they stop going sooner rather than later the faster we fall apart the sooner a new owner can buy the shambles for peanuts and rebuild.

What a shock... Our club is such a joke, I knew a positive appointment was never going to happen.  The thought of seeing Carver and McClaren in our dugout is absolutely horrendous.  The only talk Carver should be getting is one telling him his time at NUFC is at an end.

I would like to say I'm surprised but I'm not Ashley is pond life his interview was b@llocks. Since January we have ended up with 1 of two carver or mclaren they will do the job properly next season we will go down! Everyone he employs to run the club are inept. Charnley has had 6 months nearly to do f@ck all you couldn't make this up they have made total fools of us again nothing is going to change! Ashley out! !!!

Vieira stood no chance as soon as supporters let their feelings known that he was a good choice. The fat man will say it's black if NUFC supporters say it is white. He hasn't and won't change the way he operates. I find it strange that for someone who is supposed to be a good businessman that he employes donkeys like Penfold. The guy hasn''t the balls to tell two long serving genuine players that they are no longer wanted he has to rely on his gutter rat to do it over the phone. In my opinion major decisions are being made by a teaboy and a third rate manager turned scout who enjoys his jollies around europe scouting for boys. Change, ambition, want to win things, all a load of rubbish designed to sell season tickets. It is said that the fatman is resurrecting Woolworths, more tat to go with his other stores and what was once NUFC.

As we all thought this was just a smoke screen by either Cashley or Viera's representatives via the puppet master that is Sky Sports.


The job was always going to McClown, he was looking at houses near Hexham last week and staying at Ramside Hall. 


They can't be meeting with Charver because he's on holiday, it'll be a quick phone call to tell him the assistant head coach job he was told about a few weeks ago will be announced on Friday and what he is to say to the press.


So we now have Cashley, Chumply, McClown and Charver running our club until we win something.


I'm 54 next week I reckon I'll get a telegram from the Queen before this shower even get close!!!!!!!!

Cynical season ticket renewal tactics. I bet the scum will end up with a decent coach and we'll end up with Carver.... erm I mean the best coach in the league.

He is not a fit and proper person to be able to judge any matters football related, he must be stopped!!!. Arsely Out.

Pretty obvious then its decided they are either telling Carver how he will have to work under the new man, or that hes on his way out or heaven forbid that hes got the job. No matter how you dress it up this regime are toxic treat loyal employees and customers like crap and think they are immune to the most powerful weapon in the economic world Market Forces. Time will tell Until then the Spartans will get my loyalty first
