Newcastle United’s Premier League match against Wolves at St James’ Park on Saturday will see the return of their French midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

The 26-year-old celebrated his birthday a week ago today and has missed the last three games for Newcastle through suspension.

His return should strengthen the Newcastle United midfielder considerably and hopefully he’ll be able to add to his tally of league goals against Wigan and Manchester United.

I may have been a bit late picking up on this, but one thing I learnt this week is that earlier in the season Cabaye was given the nickname ‘Dreamboat’.

Upon doing a bit of research around this, in regards to the ‘Dreamboat’ nickname Cabaye stated: “they say it’s because I’m a sexy boy. The English are crazy!”

He’s certainly right about that and is that all there is to Yohan Cabaye’s nickname? Please enlighten me if there’s more to it.

Anyway, whilst I was looking up the Dreamboat reference I came across this fantastic picture.

Upon Yohan Cabaye’s Dreamboat are Hatem Ben Arfa, Davide Santon, Sylvain Marveaux and Shola Ameobi, who’s sporting a rather incredible afro and moustache combo.

Is this why Hatem, Sylvain aren’t playing, because they’re stuck on the boat? In my mind, whoever created the image below is something of a genius…

At the end of the season surely Cabaye will captain a boat down the River Tyne!
