Cabaye and Ba fit and ready for Spurs?

Cabaye and Ba - Fighting fit for Spurs?
Newcastle fans have been sweating over the fitness of Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye over the last few days, but it seems as though the concern was uncalled for, according to Lee Ryder anyway.

The news regarding Ba suggested that the Senegalese international was found to have an issue with his knee which meant that he sat out the international game at the weekend and didn’t take part in any training.

However it appears that it was all precautionary and the striker should be fit to face Spurs at the weekend which will allow the Toon Army a collective sigh of relief give the rich vein of form the striker is in. Ba’s scored 4 since Ramadan, and he just can’t get enough…

Now call me cynical if you like, but I find it strangely coincidental that Ba supposedly picked up an injury against Wolves, went away with Senegal, didn’t play in the meaningless game thanks to injury, but now he is supposedly fit for the game at the weekend. Job done?

The other player with injury concerns is Yohan Cabaye. Since the France game last Friday I’ve heard stories of injuries of varying degrees, each with it’s own recovery timescale ranging anywhere from zero to six weeks.

Of course eyes will be on the side that Laurent Blanc picks this evening but it would appear that Cabaye has taken part in training ahead of the match against Bosnia and Herzegovina is Saint-Denis. Personally I think it’s a tad harsh that France have to play two countries this evening, but the fact that Yohan is training should stand us in good stead for the weekend.

Whether Cabaye is picked or not should be a good indication of how his injury is. The former Lille man has established himself as a key figure for Les Bleus under Laurent Blanc, and with France still needing a result this evening to guarantee a passage to Euro 2012 you would have to think that if Cabaye is fit then he will feature.

Of course much of this is just hearsay and speculation at the moment and there is an awful lot of “understanding” going on. The local journalists have got it wrong before so I guess the only way we’ll really know for sure is when Alan Pardew talks to the media on Thursday.

Hopefully he’ll be the bearer of good news!

  2. Quite correct Troy, or whatever your next name will have to be 🙂

    Nobby – think the most comments one thread has had was just shy of 700. Im sure it was for the 4-1 against wolves last season.


  3. Shame I miised Wraith.

    Surely you figured that an event hosted by Llambiase, a man you wished dead publically, among other insults, would not allow you into an event he was hosting.

    1-Was this noting but a publicity stunt then?
    2- Why so suprised and hurt over an expected/obvious result?
    3- Regarding the Spurs comment, are you now criticising the club for making TRUE statments? A new low surely


  4. Celebrate passed 1st thing that was my dodgy knee still dont think ill be out for Spurs game youll need to keep me updated and ratings. Wish me well


  5. Don’t rule out the big discount steros like Walmart and Target. We have a BJs in our area or other similar options are Costco and Sam’s Club. These are about your cheapest resources.


  6. Compared to other online transaction systems like Paypal, bitcoin uses p2p which eliminates the need for a
    third party to complete the transaction. can log in to the website and get them all at one place.
    And besides EBay, buying Bitcoins is not easy or simple; and besides (probably) EBay,
    many of the Bitcoin vendors seem a bit goofy.
