Yohan Cabaye: No internal squabbles at St James' Park

There have been rumours circulating about the Magpies' squad being divided, with suggestions that the club's sizeable French contingent is largely apathetic to the team's current Premier League plight.

The St James' Park outfit are lurking just three points above the drop zone and in serious danger of being relegated to the Championship.

But Cabaye told the Chronicle: "In the dressing room, everything is OK here.

"The French players all want to adapt well. We are all focused together.

"We have stayed focused on being safe and playing in the Premier League next season. That is the most important thing.

"We know we are going to play well if we are focused together and stay together."

Regarding the goalless draw at Upton Park on Saturday - following on from their 6-0 home defeat by Liverpool seven days earlier - Cabaye added: "I think we had a good response from last week but we did not win the game.

"It is going to be very important to get three points against QPR.

"It is only about us now, not Wigan, Norwich or anybody else."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
