Habib Beye Wants 7 Points From Last 3 Games


Habib Beye is in his usual upbeat moood today, and says we need 7 points from our last 3 games to stay up – if that’s true then we’ll probably be relegated.

Habib Beye – 7 points from last 3 games 

We should caution our readers that when there were 7 games to go Habib wanted 21 points on the board, so what the Senegal International wants, and what we can get, are two entirely different things – unfortunately.

If we need 7 points from 3 games, after getting 4 points from our last 10 games – that’s a very big ask – but not impossible.

Habib has spoken to the Evening Chronicle this morning:

“We know what we need to do.”  “I think we need to get seven points to stay in the Premier League.”

“We can’t afford to lose any more – we just need three points on Monday.”   

This is probably the most important Tyne Tees derby game ever, although we have never really thought of it as a derby game – since Middlesborugh are too far south, and it’s certainly nothing like a Sunderland Newcastle game.

Beye talked about what Alan has been telling them this week about the Liverpool game:

“He said the game’s gone – we can’t do anything about it.”  “We need to focus on the game against Boro – it will be the most important game for everybody in their lives.”

“We need to work, and we need to stay focused on the game.”  “We play on Monday against Boro, so we have had one week to work, and to beat them.”

“Nobody thought before the game we could get something in Liverpool, because they are going for the title, but when you come to this place (Anfield), you want to enjoy the game and try to get something.”

“I think the first goal was offside, but they are a really good team, and showed their quality. They had more quality than us – that’s it.”  “It’s hard to keep a clean sheet against Liverpool.”

“We have three games left now, and I think everybody knows what we need to stay in the Premier League.”   

It’s getting to be touch and go for this weekend’s games, and the we could be dead and buried come Monday night.

There again, if results go our way, we could be 4th bottom by late Monday night with just 2 games to go, with our next game at home to Fulham, where a win could almost guarantee us safety.

Let’s hope for the latter come Monday night at 10:00 pm.

Comments welcome.

    Craigg- My only worry is, if Man U have already won the league before the end of the season, they will put reserves out against Hull and Hull will win leaving us relegated

    but i would also agree with your predictions if evry team in the league feilds their strongest team from now till the end of the season

    The reason i beleive we can beat Fulham is because they’ll have nothing to fight for as they’re out of the chase for Europe and they definately cant get relegated and WE’RE AT HOME!

    Ive had the same worries about Man Utd myself and Chelsea may field a weakened before the FA cup final.

    I just hope the other relegation threatened teams lose their games going into those last days matches and their confidence is low.

    Even if Hull do win today and get something against Man Utd (Which is Unlikely), I cannot see Sunderland picking up another point this season and if we win our home games it should be enough.

    Hull will beat Stoke because Stoke are safe and have given up and they are useless away.

    We will need to watch Didier Digard come Monday, he will be Boro’s biggest asset.

    Well I think we wont go down this year not because we are good enough to stay up…

    but because there are teams far worse than us, namely Hull and Mackems

    Then again, we lost to the mackems and hull 🙁
