Stoke boss Pulis doubts Pardew made Newcastle decision on Cabaye deal

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis wonders who is pulling the strings at Newcastle United.

While the signing of Yohan Cabaye has proved a brilliant move, Pulis doubts his counterpart Alan Pardew had anything to do with the £5m bargain-buy from Lille.

Welshman Pulis, who takes Stoke to Newcastle tomorrow night, said: "I'm not sure it was Alan who picked Cabaye.

I think there's someone else up there who picks out the players. Whoever it was, though, Cabaye does look a very good player.

"I certainly would never let someone else choose my players for me. It is one of the things I always insist upon in this job."
