The Chronicle produced a piece assessing Cabella’s career since he left Newcastle, and it has attracted the attention of a lot of Toon fans.

What do we think?
Was Cabella a flop for Newcastle?
Yes, clearly not good enough
No, was not given enough time
The Frenchman was signed after a good season for Montpellier in Ligue 1, where he managed to score 14 goals and provide eight assists, but he could not replicate that form on Tyneside and averaged a match rating 6.99 for his performances in the league, as per WhoScored.
The Frenchman also found himself included in Mark Douglas’ worst Newcastle squad of the past decade and, in our opinion, Cabella’s time on Tyneside should probably just be forgotten about.
