Yohan Cabaye – ‘There’s Only One United’
The early part of the summer was dominated by talk of Yohan potentially going to Manchester United.
Whatever the truth, or not, of those rumours, the good news is that Yohan Cabaye is making all the right noises as the season moves ever closer and if Newcastle are to bounce right back in the coming season , then it would appear to be a no-brainer that we need our playmaker back to his best and staying match fit.
“It is always nice to hear that and the fans were fantastic, as they are every time. It was a good win and me it was my first win of pre-season, so it was nice. We played well in the first half and the second was more difficult, we were still working though. We have to be focused and ready for the first game on August 19th.
Everybody is focused on the team and we worked really hard in Portugal.
We just want to progress with the ball and keep more of the ball than last season, we gave it away too easily sometimes. The manager wants us to take one or two touches on the ball and me after the pass.
The feeling is good in the squad, very positive – it is nice to work in this atmosphere.”
With rumours of PSG seemingly also put into the past, Cabaye can concentrate on what he does best, even though he struggled for much of last season he still weighed in with half a dozen Premier League goals. We desperately need both Ben Arfa and Cabaye weighing in with goals and I think it is a realistic for both of them to aim for double figures in the Premier League, our midfielders getting in the box a lot more would be a great start.
