Can 92% of Newcastle fans be wrong today?
Saturday 22nd November is the time for Remy Cabella to step up and show us what he has got.
The last match at West Brom was the first one Newcastle had won with Cabella in the starting eleven but he still only had a very small influence on the game.
Injuries will ensure that the French playmaker starts today, even if Alan Pardew had other ideas – the poll of readers on this website also shows that fans definitely want to see him play and perform today, 92% voting for Cabella to start.
Alan Pardew may have spoken about Moussa Sissoko being Yohan Cabaye’s replacement, though he admitted that he was more like a ‘battering ran’ than the passing and link-up play of Cabaye.

Many supporters saw Remy Cabella as the player to fill Yohan’s boots but on what we have seen so far, it might be more of a case of Hatem Ben Arfa’s boots getting filled.
What needs to happen is for the Newcastle manager to find a formation where he will get the best out of Cabella and that should start today.
With the likes of Aarons and Obertan unavailable then we need a player to give the team that attacking intent, whether it is out wide or Pardew finds him a place more central.
Remy Cabella has now had over three months to settle in and his time has arrived, can he translate his undoubted talent onto the Premier League.
