Alan Pardew raved about Debuchy afterwards and who could blame him, a great performance and a player who it looks was well worth waiting for. A vital three points that sets United up to attack the remaining matches.
With only two years left on his contract come the summer, it would be great to see the club get Hatem signed up on a longer deal because I for one can’t wait to see him in the team now we have a better quality of player throughout the team to complement his talents.
A glorious left footed pass from Yohan sent Gouffran surging down the left and into the box, he tricked the full-back one way and then the other before his hard low cross was met by Moussa Sissoko who’d made a lung-busting run to get there.
Though unlucky with injuries, when fit the French winger/striker/midfielder has been outstanding and undoubtedly his value has increased over the course of his contract, so an improved contract offer would appear on the cards.
As well as talking in general about today’s victory that puts clear daylight between Newcastle United & relegation and the all round performance, Alan Pardew updated us on the injury position with both Yohan Cabaye and Fabricio Coloccini.
The fact we conceded early in both halves would have been something we’d never have recovered from earlier in the season. The fact we went over two years without winning after falling behind in the Premier League, only to now do it twice in a month (Chelsea and Southampton), says it all.
