Habib Beye Returns To Full Training Today


Some good news over the weekend for Newcastle fans was that Habib Beye will return to full training today.

Habib Beye – may be ready for Blackburn on Saturday

Beye visited a specialist in London last week about his Achilles injury, and was given the go ahead to start training again today, but the Carling Cup tie with Spurs on Wednesday will come too soon for the Senegalese International.

Habib has been missed these last couple of games, and David Edgar has looked less than steady in that position. The best we can hope for is that Beye will be ready for our home game against Blackburn next Saturday.

But there is still a worry that any negative reaction of the Achilles could mean that Beye is forced to have an operation on his injured heel. Let’s hope that is not required – that’s the last thing we want to hear right now.

Beye told the Chronicle last Saturday:

“This is my second season and I want it to be a success like last year.” “After some games my Achilles has been very sore and I needed a late fitness test at Arsenal before I played.”

“I wanted to rest after that and see what happened.” “I have had treatment on it, I wanted to stop and have a break after Arsenal.”

“I knew that I could miss Hull City but I knew I could come back afterwards.” “I can’t play all the season with this.”

Caretaker manager Chris Hughton talked about Beye’s injury:

“He’s one that we’ll assess over the next two weeks. We’ll try to up his training, and the amount of work that he’s able to do without him having any ill effects.”

Habib has been a good player for us since he was signed last summer from Marseilles, but like the other players he must be worried about the events going on at Newcastle right now.

It looks like he will soon be playing under his 3rd manager at the club, in a short 12 months.

Where is that stability we said we needed at the club?

    Ed, I’d just like to say that I’m glad your slightly misguided sense of optimism (e.g. talking about European football next season) has been replaced by some much needed realism.

    There really is NOTHING positve about this club at the moment!

    magpie6699 – Agreed. I think the problem is that having players fit is the least of our worries at the moment.

    Good news when he comes back, just hope fans aren’t on his back if he takes a few games to get back up to speed. In the same way that Edgar and Cacapa are getting grief because they havn’t slotted straight into a confidence filled winning team.!!! By the way is Enrique injured?

    For my other two pennorth, I would be happy to see the Nigerians buy the club for lots of reasons. many already stated on the blog so I won’t repeat them.

    I am i the only one who feels KK is largly responsible for the MESS we are in!. He would have know the state we would be in if he walked away AGAIN but still he did it. If he loves the club why did he not tell MA that he will hold the reigns but to look for a replacment? No No dummy out ME ME ME bye bye
    And still some what him back….no thanks.

    k k forever – do you not think Keegan would have been promised a replacement for Milner with the money we made? The board never backed him in the transfer market – thats the problem.

    good post Bill F. It stands out a mile, you cannot play young kids out of position like Nzogbia and Edgar. Edgar has been a CB for the last 8 years but has been used as cover for Beye at RB and it was plain to see he was marking like a CB at RB which you cannot do.

    We’ve got more problems than just wanting a manager now. It looks like a full scale revolt and meltdown, and to top it off the owner wants to sell the club at a huge profit. How can this be right? When he took over at least we had an average team and a small squad, now we have a crap team and virtually no squad!
    How is it even remotely possible to ask anything like £350m for the club which is in far worse shape than it was when bought for £240m.
    As a business and compared to shares, the owner should know that the clubs ” share value ” has dropped significantly, so how can he expect ANYONE to buy it at such an inflated price and in such a dire condition. Is this the final twist of the knife for him being ” RUN OUT OF TOON “?
    Just showing us how a real business man does things. Unfortunately I think there will be a few more twists in the tail before this mess gets sorted out, after all who would want to take over the club now? The only real losers will be the fans, US who love the club. And again unfortunately for us, the press will see any castigation of club fans or anyone associated with NUFC as fitting for derision, they think we deserve everything we get. It must be transmitting to the players too, cos just look at the performance on Saturday, there was no belief there .
    How on earth has this state of affairs come to pass? I feel so sickened by the whole bloody mess we are in, its depressing, its just one more crisis after the next, when will it end???
    Sick to the stomach, but living in hope!

    Milner suffered in the same way that many of our players did till KK arrrived and started playing them in positions they were suited to. (bad grammer I know). They still weren’t quite there but they were getting there. He has been very good for Villa under a decent manager who has had consistent backing. As Heavy Hitters says it stands out a mile.

    By the way the NUFC mad blog makes an amusing comparison saying any new owners will be boarding the Mary Celeste.
    I remember seeing an account of a French fishing boat that left harbour on Xmas eve and dissappeared presumed lost, only to return exactly one year later back to its home port and home berth. The strange thing was that the only crew was the Captain who was frozen solid to the wheel, dead of course. Nowt to do with Newcastle just thought it was an interesting story. The story is a newspaper article which is hanging in a church in Brittany. (No not the Sun or Sunday Sport).
    Although we are becoming lost at sea as a club so there may be a strange sort of relevence.

    It’s got F all to do with us how much MA wants.
    We’re supposed to be supporting FOOTBALL, not owners. Keep ya eyes on the ball.

    Can we JUST SUPPORT the TEAM now, for a while at least? Is that doable?

    WE CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE SELLING OF THE CLUB EXCEPT MAKE THINGS WORSE.

    The best thing we CAN do is support the team & make buying the place a viable option.

    Howay!

    Nacho & Xisco need a chance.
    You can’t right players off after a couple of games in a new country at a club in flux.

    That’s whats wrong with NUFC fans, no friggen patience.

    i said they have looked bollox SO FAR, they may have only made 2 appearances, but they have both been poor appeances, so that means they have been poor so far, so that means what i said was correct.

    there is a difference in saying someone has been crap so far, and saying someone is a crap player altogether u know!!

    no, judging them would be saying ‘they are crap players’ what i said was judging there performances so far, not there ability as players, like i said, there is a difference
