Habib Beye A Huge Miss For Newcastle This Season


The player we have missed the most through injury this season is no doubt Habib Beye, our experienced right back.

Habib Beye – injury prone season this time around

In his first season on Tyneside last year, he was Newcastle’s player of the year, but then at Wigan on Boxing day he sustained a rather bad ankle injury that looks like keeping him our for almost four months.

Habib recovered from an Achilles injury earlier in the season, then suffered ankle ligament damage at Wigan, and it appears the Senegal International is still all of  seven weeks away from a first-team return.

However, the former Marseilles captain is now back in light training and working hard in an attempt to get back into action as soon as he can.

Habib has had many many messages of support from the Newcastle fans, and he takes them as a major motivation to get back to action just as soon as he can.

Habib Beye today gave nufcTV the latest news on his fitness fight:

“When I come to the games now always around the stadium the fans ask, ‘When are you coming back? We need you back’,”

“That is good for me and I really appreciate that and I thank them for their support.” “I always give my best for this football club and try 100% for the fans.”

“So when they wish me well it makes me very happy and I want to come back as quickly as possible to help the team.”

“I’m very proud to play for Newcastle United.” “It is unbelievable to play at St. James’ Park in front of all the fans.”

“But now I must support the team all I can, I even sing and everything!” “The victory against West Brom was very important because we needed some points to take us away from the bottom.”

“But it’s not finished yet and we still have a lot of games to play.” “Hopefully I can come back and help to get the points which will make us safe and I’m confident for the rest of the season.”

Habib is not only a good player, but he is one of the leaders at Newcastle, and has a positive impact on those around him when he is playing, with his never-say-die attitude and 100% committed play.

He’s certainly been a huge miss for the Magpies this season.

    He’s undoubtedly a big miss. A very good defender and offers plenty of support going forward. He plays like he’s a lot younger than his years too.

    Like Habib a lot. Excellent leader of the backline, can slot in if needed anywhere across the back four with confidence, comes forward and overlaps really well. Some of his tackles have been outstanding.
    The sooner back the better. Damn that cattermole, won’t be long before he ends a career of an nufc player.

    We need Steve Taylor to put a reducer in on Cattermole next time he’s here. Worth a yellow card to take the git out.

    Beye is everything we want in a player – I’ll not have confidence in our defence until he’s back.

    Habib is a top quality player…I would rate the lad alongside Boswinga as the best right full back in the premiership….Pace, power, can attack just aswell as he defends and reads the game like a bible….

    Cattermole will get sorted next time he comes to SJP…Barton, Nolan and Beye will all be waiting to give him a taste of his own medicine….

    Beye has probably been the biggest miss for us IMO. He brings stability to the backline and leadership all over the pitch, especially in defence.

    He is my pick for captain next season.

    also think one of the worst decisions and at the same time best tackles in the premieship this season was the one at everton (i think?) when beye got sent off for what was an unbelievably good challenge
