Kevin Keegan talked to the Newcastle Journal this morning and was singing the praises of center-back Abdoulaye Faye’s performance on Saturday.
Abdoulaye Faye – best player on pitch on Saturday
Keegan though Faye was as good as anyone against Fulham, as Newcastle were able to keep their first clean sheet since Kevinâ€™s first game in charge against Bolton on January 19.
“As for Abdoulaye Faye, I thought he was as good as anyone on the pitch on Saturday.â€
â€œEveryone will talk about Michael and rightly so, and maybe Viduka, but Faye was excellent for me.â€
We wondered why Cacapa was missing on Saturday, and apparently the Brazilian centre-back has been injured and could be out for the next five weeks. We donâ€™t know what the injury us, and itâ€™s not yet listed on PhysioRoom.com.
But we still have Peter Ramage and David Edgar, both of whom can play anywhere across the back four and these two we think will be given run-outs before the end of the season.
And of course we have Lamine Diatta, the Senegal captain, who we think Kevin must try out to see if it is worth an extended contract in the summer. By all reports in training. Lamine is a very good player indeed.
What do you think?
