Yohan Cabaye – Helping Everton Fans To Love Newcastle Again

9 years ago

Ever since the rise of Newcastle United under Kevin Keegan, alongside Aston Villa and Spurs, Everton fans have never been slow to show their resentment to the black & whites shaking up what was the established top order back then.

Visits to Goodison Park have never being the friendliest and maybe the term ‘bitter blues’ is well deserved.

Maybe relations were thawing slightly but thanks to Yohan Cabye I don’t think we’ll be having a big love-in on our next visit.

This is how Everton fans’ website followtonians reacted after yesterday;

‘At the beginning of this season, I wrote that matches against Newcastle had lost much of their sheen because many of the players I hated had moved on to ply their trades elsewhere.

Kevin Nolan left to fell more trees in the Championship with West Ham.

Joey ‘King of Helmets’ Barton went to QPR to elbow Carlos Tevez in the face before kicking Sergio Aguero from behind to insure that the ‘Manchester City Champions 2012’ tattoo on his arse remained accurate.

Anyway, before today, other than Gosling, I didn’t really hate any of the Newcastle players. I mean, Jonas Gutierrez looked jovial if a bit hungover and Papiss Cisse seems like a nice guy who’s content to bang in ridiculous goals.

Then Yohan Cabaye shoved an Evertonian ball boy, a child, into the advertising board for no apparent reason. It was a cowardly act that incited fury amongst Everton fans and likely precipitated the throat grab from Tim Cahill at the final whistle.

I don’t care that he apologized to the ball boy, he should have never touched the kid in the first place. Game on, Barcodes’.

Yohan Cabaye issued an apology via the club’s official website last night for his clash with Tim Cahill at the final whistle but that is unlikely to stop Newcastle United once again hovering around the top of the bitter blues’ ‘favourite’ list.

“I would like to apologise for the cross words I exchanged with Tim Cahill which resulted in his red card and my booking on the final whistle.

It was unnecessary and, regrettably, the result of frustration and disappointment, all in the heat of the moment.

It is out of character and for that I am sorry.

We have had a fantastic season at Newcastle United and already I look forward to next season, the Premier League and the Europa League.

Finally, a huge thank you to our fans who have been magnificent all season”.
