Habib Beye is exactly the type of player Newcastle fans love to see playing for the club.
Habib Beye - the perfect player for Newcastle United
First of all he’s a good player, and then he likes the life at Newcastle and seems to have settled down well with his family, including his young daughter.
Then he is immediately inspired by the fanatical crowd support that is Newcastle United, and Habib has that never-say-die attitude that has already made him a firm crowd favorite on Tyneside, even though this is just his second season on Tyneside.
And it’s not surprising he already wants to extend his time at the Tyneside club.
Just about the perfect player for Newcastle and he now showing definite signs of recapturing his fine form from last season, which saw him be out own Player Of The Season. His performance last Saturday is London was first class.
Beye talked about tomorrow’s game to the Evening Chronicle today:
“It’s a big game for us.” “We lost the first derby against Sunderland and in this one we have to win it for the fans. We must do well.”
“Yes, it is a derby but in addition to that it’s also a big day because we need all three points so victory is on our minds.”
“We need points. It’s so close in the Premier League.” “You can see how easily you can move up if you start winning.”
“But by the same token you can easily be sucked into a relegation battle.” “That of, course, is not what anybody wants here and each game coming helps us get out of it.”
“When you look around everybody is taking points from each other.” “Fulham took a point at Anfield against Liverpool last week and we enjoyed getting a point at Chelsea.”
“We have shown the quality we have now.” “Now you can expect to see us in the top 10 again.” “We have been to Man U and Chelsea and none of them have beaten us.” “So we have to be more confident.”
Tomorrow gives Newcastle a chance to start to put a decent run of results together, starting last week at Chelsea. It would be fitting too, now that Joe Kinnear has the reigns until the end of the season, that we get all 3 points.
Who knows, with a good run maybe we could still do the unthinkable and qualify for Europe next season. After all we are just 5 points off Everton, who are in 7th place in the league.
You just never know what might happen at Newcastle, it’s unlikely yes, but certainly not impossible. But we’ll need to start winning, starting tomorrow at The Riverside.
