Sebastien Bassong is a very special young man at Newcastle, and he is as confident and relaxed off the field as he appears to be when he’s playing, and this lad surely is destined for the top.
Sebastien Bassong – so consistent this season for one so young
And the French defender is still insisting that Newcastle United will win their survival fight, just like he’s been saying for months.
And Alan Shearer has already singled out the young Frenchman for special prais, since he’s beeen manager, as he realizes Newcastle have some player in their ranks – if only we can keep him at the club in the summer.
Bassong has literally gone from strength to strength this season, and he has without doubt been Newcastle’s best player in this his very first season, even though our defense has been as bad as ever.
If Newcastle are to survive, we need to beat both Middlesbrough and Fulham in our next two home games, and since we have only one win in the last 19 games, and only 6 wins all season, that may be a difficult task.
But Bassong is clear that Newcastle can win both these games, as he spoke to Newcastle United TV this morning:
The belief is still there that we can win the next two games,” “We have to. We can’t think about a draw. We have to win and that is what we will do.”
“We weren’t at our best at Liverpool and they played well, that is why we got beat.” “Everybody was sad after the game but we don’t have the time to be sad or disappointed.”
“We must look ahead to the Middlesbrough game because that will be the most important of the season so far.”
We expect to hear these kinds of words from our players before the Middlesbrough game, but the lads have continually failed to produce this season in games like these, which have been called “must win” games. At least we listen to Seb, because this lad always produces, unlike some of the more experienced members of our team.
But time is running out and with 3 games to go it seems we need to win two of them to be sure of surviving.
