Habib Beye already seems a fan of Andy Carroll and the 31 year-old experienced Senegal player is only too willing to help guide Andy in his football development in the next year or so, and he thinks Andy can become some player, after that.
Andy Carroll – can become excellent player
And Beye sees a lot of similarities in the way young Carroll plays with the way the great Alan Shearer played during his time on the pitch, so that cannot be too bad.
Andy still has a lot to learn, and he knows that, but if he can keep his head down, and work hard then there’s a great player in there, and Habib thinks Andy can now play a vital role for the club in the run-in to the season:
“I told him before the game to stay focused because we needed everyone to stay focused, even those that did not start. It is good for him because he works hard every day in training and he got a good goal for us.”
“He got the goal that gained us a massive point and whether or not I felt he was going to get it does not matter. I did, but it is all about the fact his goal earned us a massive point.”
“He is a nice lad, a Geordie lad, he is from Newcastle and loves the club. He is proud of what he is doing now and he is a young lad who will learn from everyone. It is really important when you are young to learn off everyone in training and in matches.”
“But it will also help Andy we now have a manager who was a striker, a top striker, who he can learn from. Andy will be given some good advice from the manager.”
“He has shown his quality before, he showed his quality again and it is good to have him in the squad. It looked like a Shearer goal against Stoke.”
We need Andy in the form and the spirit he showed everybody on Saturday, where he electrified the game after he came on, and Jonas Gutierrez worked like a Trojan too, and the both of them turned the game in Newcastle’s favor, but we just couldn’t get that so vital second goal that would have given us a massive 3 points.
If we had scored a second then the roof would have been blown off at the Britannia Stadium, such was the enthusiasm of the Newcastle fans and the players too.
Let’s hope we can do that at White Hart Lane next Sunday, that’s the next stop on the road to survival, and we must look and plan to get all 3 points.
