Newcastle Players Working All Over The Pitch – Beye

Habib Beye talked to the Evening Chronicle today, and is clear that Newcastle’s defense needs to have another strong game if we are to get a win in London tomorrow against Fulham.

Habib Beye – getting quickly back to top form

Habib spoke this morning:

“We all know how important our consistency is going into the game at Fulham.” “And keeping a clean sheet is on our minds.” “It is massive for us to keep a clean sheet.”

“It was important for us, every time we concede it is hard for Shay Given.” “To keep one against Villa was massive. Before the game, everybody was talking about Agbonlahor and Carew.”

“They have a good side but we stopped them scoring.” “We are pretty strong to keep a clean sheet against them.” “If you want to do well in the Premier League you must keep clean sheets.”

“Look at Liverpool and Chelsea, they keep a lot of clean sheets.” “Sometimes they win only 1-0 but that is enough to do well.”

It was clear that Newcastle players were helping each other all over the pitch on Monday night, with wingers Jonas and Duff working back to help out the defense, and we have no idea the number of miles Joey Barton and Nicky Butt must covered in central midfield, but it must have been a lot.

Habib continued::

“We all need to work hard all over the pitch.” “Jonas is a great example of that.” “Jonas is a fighter and we need fighters like him in the team.”

“He played very well against Aston Villa and hopefully there will be more to come from him.”

Beye did get his first yellow card against Aston Villa on Monday night when he threw the ball away when Villa wanted to take a free kick quickly, and Newcastle were hardly ready. We’d rather Beye get the yellow card than Newcastle give up a goal, because that would helped Villa no end.

Beye continued:

“I didn’t want to give the ball away very quickly because if Villa had played the ball quickly, we could have been in trouble.” “The problem for the ref was because I threw it too far.”

“But it didn’t matter in the end because we won the game.” “That was the most important thing.”

Beye has played very very well in the last couple of games, and we just hope Habib keeps improving tomorrow, when hopefully we can pick up another 3 points, whichever way we can do it.

But it will be important tomorrow for our defense to play very solidly again tomorrow, that’s for sure. And a win is a definite possibility, and that’s what we are all hoping for tomorrow.

    And i agree, Ranger does seem to score alot. He thinks he is a bit of a ganster though, which isnt great.

    What a buy Nasri is turning out to be, his second goal today was nothing short of brilliant. Rafael’s goal was class too. What a game!

    Nile Ranger is unstoppable right now. What a prospect.

    I was at todays academy game and Ranger was outstanding, he looks ready for a place on the bench. Tozer, McCrudden and Sam Ameobi also impressed, Though Ameobi’s workrate needs to improve. Our Italian Zamblera though big in frame is very soft and needs alot of coaching to bring out the best in him. Nile Ranger is the best talent NUFC have had since Gazza.

    I agree that beye is a very good rightback but for me (& i don’t see all the games) he could get behind the oppositions defence more & improve his crossing. Same goes for Enrique….

    Arsenal match was excellent football start to finish. When Cisse scored for the filth I was like ah Sh*te man. But Pompey done a goodun.

    Roll on 3 points and an entertaining match tomorrow at 4pm and I hoping Andy Gray is on the Chelsea match commentating as that man does my nutt in.

    If you listen to Century and watch the match on the tele there is a 4 second delay and you hear before you see. Useless info there for you but there you go.

    Wish the guy was five years younger, a true pro reminds me of Dennis Erwin , neither make the spectacular play because they dont have to , they make the game look easy due to a sense of positioning and seldom get the accolades .
    Best buy BSA ever made.
