Cabaye Commits To Newcastle And Confirms He Is Now ‘Right In His Head’

8 years ago

If Alan Pardew had a wish list of things that he would like to happen at Villa park, then I think he would pretty much have had a full house.

Top of the list would naturally have been three points, closely followed by a decent team performance, but I think a good day for Yohan Cabaye would have been not far behind.

Cabaye is obviously essential if Newcastle are to have a successful season and so his committed performance at Villa and great reception when he came off, will have gone a long way to get things back on the right footing.

Striking while the iron was hot, Newcastle United’s official website spoke to Yohan Cabaye and he had this to say;

“It was very very good to be back in the team, a really nice feeling.

The most important thing to me is to be back on the pitch and to play. I want to do my best for the club, team, everybody…and of course I want to win every game we play.

(Reception from fans when substituted) was very nice to hear and if the fans were/are still mad at me for what happened, then I understand and apologise.

For Newcastle fans, football is their life and I am going to give everything, as I have from my first day here, from today until the end of the season.

I want to forget what happened during the summer and put it behind me, give everything for Newcastle every day, for the club and my teammates.

It is very important to be right in my head and I am.”

As always, what happens on the pitch will be the judge of every player and the same goes for Cabaye.

No matter what goes before, players always have the chance to put things right in matches.

The reverse of that is last season, as Newcastle struggled against relegation, numerous players would come out before a match and say how they and the team were going to put things right blah blah blah.

The problem then though comes when it doesn’t improve and players are exposed.

As I say, the only way to talk is on the pitch and if you are going to make public comments, wait until AFTER you have done the business, don’t just talk a good game beforehand.
