'If It's Football, It's Vital'

So What Now For Pardew?

In what was probably the worst kept secret at NUFC, Yohan Cabaye had such a magnificent first half of this season in order to hoar himself in the shop window.

Before we point fingers and blame the worst culprit, we analyse just what we've witnessed.

We signed a French title winning International thanks to a clause in his contract more than likely found by Graham Carr's homework for a fee of 4.5 million.

The tales of ambition will have been spouted in order to seal the deal.

After his first season in which we finished 5th, he will have set his personal target like the fans and seen no reason as to why we couldn't spend some cash to strengthen the squad to challenge the top 4 teams in England.

After all, his boss, Alan Pardew had mouthed the very same opinion with players of the ilk of Cabaye's best friend in football, Mathieu Debuchy, being linked.

Pardew later back tracked and said we were strong enough. This lack of ambition must have angered Cabaye who had a poor season as a result with injury and frustration paramount to it.

Rumours were always there that Cabaye was unhappy and who would blame him?

Anyway, stories eminated that Arsenal offered a paltry sum for Cabaye in the Summer just gone which Mike Ashley took offence to, dealing with it in his own horrible way by supposedly tape recording the Arsenal officials saying they felt their offer reflected a decent price for what would be a reserve player at their place.

The recording was played to Cabaye allegedly.

In the public eye though, we had a player that wanted away and massive talk of a player strike.

Somehow or other, the great peace keeping envoy we have in Alan Pardew, the believer in all things good and proper, somehow wangled a story that he had sorted things out with Yohan and he was committed to the cause.

Just like that eh?

Committed he was and no wonder.

A deal was agreed that Cabaye could go in the Winter window to a club that matched his ambitions, in this case, the well documented PSG.

The fact Alan Pardew mentioned that we may struggle to hold onto a player that was already agreed to be sold just stinks of attracting an auction in order to increase his 'alleged' cut of transfer deals.

Even mentioning just two days ago that he's hoping to keep hold of him.

A massive if is that if Pardew was oblivious to all this, then why hasn't he walked after finding out the truth?

A lie after umpteen others which would embarrass a normal manager to the point of resignation but in all honesty, i don't think Pardew even pretends he's not in on the sham now as his hypocrisy changes quicker than Ashley's business model.

Hopefully the right questions start getting asked now, which will in turn lay bare the truth to the nucleus of our support.

A support who hang off every word from the regime and the endless drivel on Twitter or social media which paints a picture that ruins the game by every brush stoke.

Words which will again be spoken as the window will shut before we get the chance to get a replacement in for Cabaye as the line was just too far to get over.

Whatever patter is heading our way in the next couple of days, it's almost impossible now to look at one of the three stooges and expect him to believe himself what he's telling us is the truth as he's been found out.

The only remaining doubt is what rank he has under Ashley.

This regime have told so many lies that their own puppet is starting to believe them. Amazed that the mainstream media hasn't jumped all over them like they have others .
