Habib Beye was delighted with the performance of the Newcastle team on Saturday, but he knows that it’s just one game, and we have to keep our standards up, so we can start climbing the league table by picking up wins.
Habib Beye – we have to keep up the good form
Beye told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek.
“Everybody was magnificent at Chelsea” “Now I hope this gives us the confidence to do the same every week.”
“We have proved we have the ability to be like this more often. Nobody expected us to get anything at Chelsea, but it was a massive game for us and a massive point.”
“No matter what the knockers say, you still believe you can get a result.” “When you look around our dressing room we have some good players.”
“And if you went into the Chelsea dressing room and looked around they have some very good players too, but they are only human.” “We knew if we put some pressure on them we could get something.”
It was certainly a surprisingly strong performance from our rather patch-work defense on Saturday, but they all played their part and 22 year-old Sebastien Bassong was the class act of the team on Saturday, as he substituted brilliantly for the injured Steven Taylor.
Habib Beye continued:
“Now we have to work hard every day to get this club back on to the right track.” “We can enjoy the moment, but the most important thing for us is to keep on getting more points.”
“This league is very close, and you can see that teams can get points in whatever game they play if they want it badly enough.”
“We proved it, and Fulham and Villa proved you can stop the top teams over the weekend too.”
“It is probably likely to be deferred until after the close of the window, when also people have got some hopes that the financial chaos will have settled down a little,”
Habib is right, in that it’s just one game, and even though it was a terrific performance against Chelsea, it won us just a single point, after we had thrown 2 points away the previous Saturday against a 10 man Wigan outfit.
We somehow have to get a win-streak going, and a good time to start that is next Saturday at Middlesbrough, where we have to go all out on attack for all 3 points.
