Scout Report – Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa

Filed under: Scout Reports - Posted by: Paul

Alan Pardew made his second acquisition of the winter transfer window yesterday by snapping up Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa from Montpellier on a five-and-a-half-year contract. The centre-half moves to Tyneside for an undisclosed fee and follows fellow French international Mathieu Debuchy to the club this month as the Magpies look to bolster their bid for survival.

Having accrued a single point from their last five league games, Pardew’s side sit just two points ahead of the drop zone following last Saturday’s home defeat by Reading and are in real danger of being dragged into a relegation fight. With club skipper Fabricio Coloccini apparently keen to return to his native Argentina, the Newcastle boss has turned to the highly-rated 23-year-old to shore up his defence:

“We needed to strengthen the team and bringing in Mapou will give the whole squad a boost. He is precisely the sort of player we’ve been looking to bring to the club. He is a good age for us but has plenty of experience at club and international level. Mapou is a talented footballer, good in the air and on the ground and has all the attributes to succeed as a quality defender in the Premier League. He’s a good character too and that will be important for us over the next few months.”

The Statistics

Born in the Central African Republic, Yanga-Mbiwa moved to France as a youngster and joined the Montpellier youth set-up in 2005. As an 18-year-old, he made his debut towards the end of the 2006-07 and, quickly establishing himself as a regular in the heart of defence, helped his side gain promotion to Ligue 1 a couple of seasons later.

His leadership qualities saw Yanga-Mbiwa named skipper of the club and last term he captained Montpellier to their first ever Ligue 1 title, where they ended the campaign three points ahead of big-spending PSG. Over the course of seven seasons, Yanga-Mbiwa made 186 league appearances, scoring four times and providing three assists. Having featured five times for the France U21 side, he has since picked up three senior caps and was narrowly omitted from the final squad for last summer’s Euro 2012.

The Prospects

With reports once again surfacing this morning of Coloccini’s unrest, it’s looking more likely that Pardew will be without the Argentine by the time February comes around. The Magpies skipper has had an average season by his own high standards in a campaign also blighted by injury – a situation similar to that of Steven Taylor. Without the stability of his first-choice central defensive pairing at the back, Pardew has seen his side register just four clean sheets all season – a far cry from the resilient displays that kept our their opponents 15 times last term.

As a result, Pardew has mainly relied on Mike Williamson but with Taylor edging towards a return, Williamson – who has started 18 of the Magpies’ 23 league matches – could well be edged out the picture and revert to the role of squad player once again. Strong in the air, Yanga-Mbiwa reads the game well and is composed on the ball at the back – there seems little doubt he’s set to be installed in the heart of the back-four.

Faith in Newcastle’s Fantasy assets is understandably low right now, though. Pardew’s side started the campaign with two defeats in their opening 10 but, in a season which has seen many of their main men sidelined by injury, have since lost 10 of their last 13 matches – it’s little surprise the Newcastle boss has been linked with a handful of new players as he looks to quickly address his side’s dire form. Confidence may be dented at present but as the new acquisitions continue to arrive, we may once again find the Magpies offering us a source of mid-price Fantasy alternatives.

Likely to come in at 5.0 in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), Yanga-Mbiwa has a trip to fellow-strugglers Villa up next and while games against Chelsea and Tottenham dent his appeal, Newcastle then face a kind run of matches (SOT, swa, STO, wig) that look crucial to their prospects. While Pardew is clearly delighted with his new arrival, reports in the French suggest that Montpellier boss Rene Girard is set to leave the club this summer as a result of his annoyance over Yanga-Mbiwa’s sale – a show of appreciation over Newcastle’s new boy if ever there was one. His lack of attacking returns in France, however, suggest Yanga-Mbiwa is likely to be overshadowed by 5.0 priced Debuchy for goals and assist potential, though the stability he brings at the back could well boost his side’s appeal from a defensive perspective.

  1. Trivia (this was on here the other day, so if you saw the answer then, please don't answer now!)

    Who are the 2 clubs that have been in the top division of English football, but never been relegated.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. Yep. The other one is a bit of a trick question, but technically right.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Milk?

              Accrington Stanley... ;)

              • 2 years, 9 days ago
              1. Yup :) The club dissolved when they were in the old first Div, then started again at the bottom of the pyramid.

                • 2 years, 9 days ago

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    10. Oh it's not this Woolwich Arsenal nonsense is it?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    11. It's Arsenal and Everton, i'm surprised everyone else didn't know this...

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  2. those on the fletcher bandwagon how long u keeping for? have read most for 2 weeks but his fixtures look tasty till gw30.....

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. I'm on it for now, and the option is there to move to Sturridge, but I agree, if he does well there is no reason at all to ship him out.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. i heard peeps r changing him GW25/26 -> sturridge

      • 2 years, 9 days ago

    Talking about margins which are catchable. Last year at this time i was around 120 points behind my ML leader and won. I was 120,000 and finished within the top 10k.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. season before i was 2nd 100 points behind with 5 gws to go..won by 15 points :cool: i finished 700 rank for the month though

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. KoL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Outstanding! If i was the ML leader id have been gutted.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. he was pist..he said he panicked and made couple bad decisions on last day of season..it was a most enjoyable final day of season :grin:

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. i am not

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. I'm effectively chasing United for my mini league. What are the chances?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  6. is there any chance bego could be dropped for a while? conceded loads recently and sorensen saved a penalty in the cup to keep them in it recently

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. hope so hes my only keeper to play all season now

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
          • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. The whole idea Sorenson is playing in the cup cements Begovic's position in the nets.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  7. Tevez and Punch

    OR

    Bale and Pog

    on a WC?......No other City or Tottenham cover....

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. bale, too much uncertainty around tevez gametime

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. The latter. Tevez not nailed on...

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    3. bale and pog

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    4. Dzeko + Puncheon

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  8. What would you score this team out of 10 ?

    Bego - Bunn

    Zab - Azpi - Davies - Demel - Clyne

    Mata - Michu - Fellani - Bale - Guthrie

    Aguero - RVP - Fletcher

    Thoughts are appreciated :)

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. 8 really good i like it.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. Solid effort. Only changes I would consider are;

      Kun > Dzeko

      Fletcher > Sturridge

      Guthrie > AJ

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. Hell no. What's the point of having coverage for Sunderland's good fixtures if you're going to bench AJ most matches.

        If you don't bench AJ most matches you're a fool!

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
  9. currently on WC and am currently trying to decide between:

    a) Aguero / AJ; or
    b) Sturridge / Mata

    Don’t own Mata so would cost me 10m – what do you reckon?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. B for me.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. B

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  10. A. Suarez, Fellaini, Nastasic, 0.1 in bank
    B. Sturridge, Bale, Zabaleta, 0.3 in bank

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. B

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. B with fletcher for two weeks

      • 2 years, 9 days ago

    Has my rank changed overnight?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  13. afternoon gents - rmcwct please

    begovic / federici
    bdavies / onouha / cameron / r.martin or turner / demel
    michu / mata / fellaini / walcott / puncheon
    rvp / suarez / agueroooo-oo

    0.7m in the bank

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Looks very strong up front. Your defence is a little week, but I assume that this was deliberate. I would suggest Suarez -> Sturridge, and improve the defence a little.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  14. premature question but I’ll ask anyway..

    Small issue with my team this week is to play

    A Gibbs(LIV)
    or
    B Davies (sun)

    Thanks for your answers

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Gibbs

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. Davies

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    3. A tease... I'd go Gibbs

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    4. hmm gibbs eh?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  15. Anyone been to Chicago? Worth going?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. aside from Sears tower, the Bears and the Blackhawks there is nothing in Chicago.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. -1,000

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. ha you picked my 3 least favorite things about Chicago

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      3. Arrive Thurs, go out Fri and Sat night. Blackhawks game sunday (if we could get tickets). Back to England Monday

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. If you've never been, I can't recommend it highly enough. One of the best cities in America to visit

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. It truly is worth a visit. great pubs and fun people.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    3. :lol: Two replies. One - it's shit, the other - it's amazing.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. KoL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        :)

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. Yeah, but only one is from an actual American

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    4. you would enjoy in the summer if you have friends to show you around,
      its not a city for wanderers

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. would be for 4 nights in Feb. I know its cold but v cheap!

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. The reason it is cheap is because of how cold it is there in February. Being right on the lake, the wind never stops blowing, and sometimes you need to get a cab to cross the street. Save it for Summer or Fall

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
          1. damn! u mean it wouldnt be a good time at all?

            • 2 years, 9 days ago
          2. How about mid-march?

            • 2 years, 9 days ago
    5. Yes, it's great. Go now. Quick...before it's too late.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    6. Solid city, better in the warmer months, the water areas are phenominal, don't go right now it's freezin

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. Feb 14-18 be no good? Can get very good deals. Dont want to pay the summer rate so its then or never.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. Today's temp in Chicago is a high of 13 Fahrenheit with a low of 4. With the wind chill factor, it feels like 5 below zero

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
        2. it's a lively city regardless

          museums, food, shopping and entertainment will always be tops

          and you can always catch a Bulls or Blackhawks game if you are interested

          as long as you can deal with daytime highs of -4

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
          1. Plenty to do indoors in Chicago, but you would miss the beauty of the city by not being able to walk around places like Navy Pier, Grant Park, The Miracle Mile, or take a boat tour on the river

            • 2 years, 9 days ago
            1. Navy pier is a tourist trap. I'd avoid it unless you've got loads of spare time.

              • 2 years, 9 days ago
          2. cheers pal. Can you just turn up to a Blackhawks game and get tickets?

            • 2 years, 9 days ago
            1. Right now it might be difficult because the lockout just ended, and enthusiasm is very high for hockey being back right now. Who knows, by mid -February, that could all die down

              • 2 years, 9 days ago
    7. Spent a summer working there. Loved it. Been back a couple of times.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    8. I've been 3 times. The new Millenium park is cool, art institute one of the worlds best. Their architecture is the best of all the major cities IMO.

      I would avoid going in the height of summer or Winter. they have extreme conditions.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. Cheers Lee. These guys are putting me off. Thing is its bout £560 in feb or £900-1000 in summer which is too much for a 4 day city break!

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. I'm not saying don't go, you'll have a great time no matter when you go. I'm just saying you'll miss a lot of the outdoor beauty by going in February. Who knows, you could always catch a spell of global warming the days you're there, and you'll get the best of both worlds. If you go, be sure to check out Kingston Mines for some great Blues, the original Pizzeria UNO or Giordano's for some great deep dish pizza, the Fronterra Grill for some awesome Mexican food. See who's playing at the House of Blues or the Double Door, see if there is a good play at the Steppenwolf Theater, see the Field Museum, the Art Institute, the Aquarium and try to catch either a Bulls or a Hawks game

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
          1. Cheers for your great help Disco. How about mid-april? Will conditions have improved much?

            • 2 years, 9 days ago
  16. Mignolet Henderson
    Davies Rafael Onuoha Zaba Clyne/4.0
    Fellaini Michu Walcott Mata Marv
    RVP Aguero Fletcher

    How’s this WC looking? 0 in the bank and planning on Fellaini > AJ & Fletcher > Sturridge in a couple of week.

    Any changes you’d make?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. not tempted by Bale?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. Very tempted but would probably mean sacrificing Kun, it's a tough call

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. dont you just hate having the WC? too many choices,
          I still think Bale has better potential had Aggy,
          Bale has being threatening although no end product,
          Aggy has no form and just back from injury,
          However, it seems city have better fixtures

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
  17. Who is the only player in World Cup history to score for two different national teams?

    Own goals don't count.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. I thought Puskas, Hungary and Spain, don't think Di Stefano ever played for Argentina in the World Cup

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. Good shout as he played for Colmbia, Argentina and Spain but never in a World Cup

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
          • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Savo Milosevic?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. KoL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I like this

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. Close but no cigar

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. Or Sinisa Mihajlovic (Sp?) ?

        Failing that ... somebody who played for 2 of East/West/Germany perhaps?

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. Prosneki (sp?)?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. We have a winner! Robert Prosinecki scored for Yugoslavia in 1990 and Croatia in 1998

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    3. Was he an ex-Yugoslavia player?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. If it's my guy, it is. Croatia and Yugoslavia. Talented player, but can't actually remember him scoring for Yugoslavia at a World Cup.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. He got one against the mighty UAE

          • 2 years, 9 days ago
    4. There was a bloke who appeared in the 1934 World Cup final for Italy having played for one of the 1930 finalists, but I can't remember his name.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. there was a few actually half the Argentinian side of 1930 ended up playing for Italy.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. Luis Monti

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    5. Matthias Sammer (East Germany and Germany?)

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    6. Robert Prosinecki scored for Yugoslavia in 1990 and Croatia in 1998. Also played a season for Portsmouth

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  18. Anichebe or Pog?

    Have Suarez and RVP, plus four of the 'power mid' and Puncheon; plan is to rotate one of these two with Puncheon H/A, with the other six playing every week

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Difficult to say about anichebe. With mirallas back his opportunities could be seriously cut. Then again he could replace jelavic upfront. There's no doubt he's more effective than pog if hes given the same amount game time. For safety I'd say pog

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. +1

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
        1. remy

          • 2 years, 8 days ago
  19. Assuming he plays later, is anyone planning on keeping Podolskl for the near term? Arsenal seem to have the best next 4 fixtures at least.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. I'll be at the match scouting him.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  20. e.g No. 28 = Hull (city)

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. 0.0 in the bank :(

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. Very strong front 8, but possible who-to-bench issues? Also your defence is weak - I'd downgrade one midfielder and strengthen your defence slightly

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. berbatov? hes possibly a good punt provided he feels sufficiently aggrieved by united.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    3. Looks good going forwards - The defence obviously isn't that great but you might get away with it. Personally I'd like to have at least 2 of the top 3 defenders in for the rest of the season given history implies more clean sheets in their favour during this period.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    4. Thanks!
      What do you think of de Gea?

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
