Habib Beye Wants More Clean Sheets


Habib Beye was a good buy for our club, and probably the best acquisition that Sam Allardyce made, in his short 8 months as manager of Newcastle United.

Habib Beye – wants to see more clean sheets

There are various keys to winning tomorrow’s game, but the first and most important one, is to have the defense play solidly, and not give any daft goals away, as we did last week.

The defense played very well indeed against Aston Villa in our last home game, and that’s the main reason we were able to get such a good win against a strong Aston Villa side, and with a clean sheet too.

But Senegal International star Beye would also like to see more clean sheets from the side, since we’ve had only two in the league this season, against Villa and Bolton, which were both at St. James’ Park.

Habib spoke to nufcTV today:

“Aston Villa was only our second clean sheet and we need to improve that,”  “It’s very important to keep the clean sheet because you can’t score two or three goals every game.”

“Sometimes you have to win 1-0 and that is where we have to do our job.” “We did this against Villa but then conceded two against Fulham.”

“We beat Wigan last year at home with a late, 1-0 win and we’d certainly settle for the same again.” “The more games we play together as a defence the better it gets,”

“But we must remember that we defend as a team and it’s not just about four players.” “We all know we need more clean sheets because we’re always confident of scoring goals.”

Last season against Wigan, we were the better side and after 87 minutes, Oba Martins put in a great right wing cross for Michael Owen to slot home and get all 3 points.

There were over 50,000 fans at that game last season, and we’re hoping our attendances will improve, as we need to support Joe and the players now more than ever.

But we’re sure the crowd will be roaring on Newcastle tomorrow, as they have done ever since Joe Kinnear arrived at the club.

    Tom toon – I know , she is furious. She said thats the last time i am aloud to let you sleep over. It must have been a combination of the fizzy pop and watching scream so close to your bedtime.

    Who can take AO seriously – anyone who thinks Tottenheim are a “big club” even though they have pitifully small crowds and have never finished in the top 2 has to be delusional.
    And then theres that problem he has with his wee control…..

    Not, what she told me. She said you have problems with incontenence. She said you often soil yourself, mostly when you come into confrontation with little girls.

    tom- Well do you want to pop round about tea time? We could set up my computer and look at lots of african players on youtube. Its nearly the transfer window so we need to get scouting. Then you can come on here on monday and tell everyone that you saw these players play over the weekend. Nobody will be any wiser and they will all think you are very knowledgeable. If only they knew that you are a 14 year old boy hehe.

    AO hates himself, its obvious. I bet he wakes up every morning, looks at himself in the mirror and is disgusted. Thats why he wants to put others down. Piss off to your own blogs mate. This is for newcastle fans ok? oh shit hang on….can you read this? I forgot, you are probably retarded. Its ok, just get your helper to aid you.

    tom toon- age aint nothin but a number , as Aaliyah once sang and you shouldnt be embarressed. I think you do quite well in holding a conversation with adults. Sometimes your jokes and put downs are a little juvenile but i dont expect to much from you.

    I thought you were the internets No 1 scout. Only yesterday you were telling us how good de ridder was and how you mentioned him in the summer. Whatever happened to Aeda Turan? He was your next big thing wasnt he. Do you remember that turkish bloke coming on here winding everyone up with stories from the press in turkey saying he wanted to join newcastle. Made me laugh that everyone believed him.

    Arda Turan was never my suggestion, I was one of the few who didn’t really want to him as he is slow for a winger.

    Sll I said was in response to someone when they said De Ridder was good v Arsenal was that I suggested him and we could have got him for free.

    You need to grow up AO.

    tomtoon- you are a liar. You spent all summer calling for Arda Turan and then had a strop because you didnt get him. You said he was world class and only changed your tune when news broke that arsenal were after him.suck your bottom lip in.
