Alan Pardew Names His Man Of The Match

8 years ago

Alan Pardew had a smile on his face at the end of the match and there was one player who he picked out as outstanding.

Whether you give Pardew, Graham Carr or…Yohan Cabaye the credit, I agree with the manager about this player today;

“We had the outstanding player on the pitch, who happened to be French, and that was Debuchy.

He was brilliant today.

If you ever want to see a little cameo of what a full-back should play like – he did it today”.

With every match the French full-back is looking better and better and as is the case overall with our new recruits, if only they’d arrived in the summer!

Debuchy has all the characteristics of a modern full-back as he is athletic, strong and comfortable on the ball going forward.

Along with Davide Santon, I honestly think we have potentially the best pair of attacking full-backs in the Premier League.

Like Alan Pardew, I’m just a little bit excited.
