Habib Beye almost scored early in the game yesterday, when his powerful left foot shot cannoned off the cross-bar and back into play.
Habib Beye – almost scored dramatic early goal yesterday
The French-speaking pair of Geremi and Beye have struck up an excellent understanding down Newcastle’s right flank since Geremi has returned to the starting line up. And Geremi’s top class play and passing is one of the reasons Newcastle are now unbeaten in their last three games.
Habib spoke to Newcastle World TV after the game.
“I’m very, very happy for my friend Geremi,” “It’s a great free-kick and he knows how to score them because he has done so many times before in his career.â€
“He has worked very hard because at first he was on the bench but now he is playing and is playing very well.â€ “For me, I play right-back and he plays right-midfield and it’s very easy to play with him.â€
“Sometimes we speak English and sometimes French but he’s a great person and very good professional and I think today his goal changed the game.” “It was the perfect game for everyone and reward for all the hard work we have put in on the training pitch,”
“We showed character because Spurs scored first and maybe two or three months ago we would have been beaten.” “But now we have a great team spirit and that showed in the way we came back.”
Beye almost scored that dramatic goal early in the game and when asked about it he continued:
“Yes!” “I was one-on-one with the goalkeeper and saw Oba alone but thought I need to take my chance.”
“It was a good strike with my left foot and it was unlucky because it hit the crossbar, but that is football sometimes.”
Habib in one player who has come through this season looking good throughout, but some of Big Sam’s other signings are also playing their part.
Faye, Enrique, Geremi, Barton and Viduka are all in the starting line up so that’s 6 of the 9 players Sam signed in the first team right now. The other three are Rozehnal (on loan to Lazio), Cacapa (injured) and Alan Smith (sub) are the other three Sam signed.
It’s looking like last summers’ signings are not as bad as we first thought, now that most of the players are now used to the Premier League.
