Habib Beye talked over the weekend, and thinks Newcastle United have a good chance of getting all 3 points against Aston Villa tonight at St. James’ Park.

Habib said over the weekend:
“Maybe things are going for us again, at last,” “When you have a small squad it is difficult. If you have an average performance, you know you will still play the next game because no one is there to take your place.”
“When you have a big squad – and we do now Joey and Jonas have come back and Shola is fit – you can see the difference. It is a good thing for everyone.”
“Joey played very well against West Brom and it is just perfect for us that he is back now. The Villa game can change everything because if we win, we can go maybe not the top 10 but almost and then we go to Fulham.”
Of course the visit of Aston Villa poses a much stiffer test for the Newcastle side, especially our defense, as Habib continued:
“It will be much harder game than West Brom but we need the points and we are playing at home so we must approach the game with confidence,”
“I think Villa have some good players like Carew and Agbonlahor but we have a good side as well.” “No one expects us to win against Aston Villa but, while they are a good team, they are not Chelsea or Arsenal.”
Habib is a firm fan favorite and has taken kindly to life in Newcastle and he has often said how he and his wife love the city. He talked about the 3 managers he’s had in his short 14 months at the club:
“It happens in football. At Marseille they changed coaches a lot of times. You just need to adapt and try to help the new manager,”
“When Kevin Keegan went, it was not a good time for us. It was hard for everyone but now we must help Joe Kinnear to do something good for this club because the most important thing is Newcastle United.”
Habib epitomizes the spirit currently in the Newcastle camp, and he’s back to some good form as he had an excellent game against WBA last Monday night.
We’ll need Habib at his best, along with most of other players, if we are to get all 3 points tonight, which has to be the teams’ mission. We can do just that, with a little bit of luck on our side.
