Beye And Taylor Both Tiring Of Ridiculous Newcastle Situation


It appears that two Newcastle stalwarts Habib Beye and Steven Taylor, are both looking at their futures at the Tyneside club.

Habib Beye – getting tired of ridiculous Newcastle

This follows the embarrassing soap opera that has been performing at St. James’ Park since we were relegated 4 weeks ago, and the Director of the comedy show is of course current owner, Mike Ashley. It’s been a smash hit in the gossip press.

But it’s not funny when it’s your employers who look not to know what they are doing. Mike Ashley’s incompetence, and unwillingness to tell Newcastle players what was happening was responsible for Shay Given leaving the club last January.

And a lot of fans thought Shay would never leave Tyneside, but the antics of the owner just got too much for the very professional Shay Given, and he flew the nest rather quickly.

A Newcastle insider told the Evening Chronicle today:

“Steven sat down with Alan at the end of the season to chat about things, and it was positive despite relegation.”

“Steven was basically saying to Alan ‘If you’re staying, I’m staying’.”

“Things have changed a bit since then and, with Alan still not being handed the job and pre-season training so close, Steven is going to have a look at his position.”

“Obviously he would love to stay and work with Alan, but he is upset by what has been happening in the last few weeks.”

Two clubs who are said to be interested in Steven are Arsenal and West Ham and are monitoring developments at the Tyneside club.

And it’s also understood that top full-back Habib Beye is also growing rather tired of the ridiculous situation at the club, with Shearer kicking his heels at home over the last 4 weeks, as he awaits the call from the club, which hasn’t yet come.

The Senegal International has just one year left to run on his contract and he would have wanted to sign a new contract to finish his career on Tyneside.  Stoke City have been linked with the former Marseilles captain over the weekend, and of course he will not be short of options.

Most of these problems will blow over if  Alan Shearer is appointed, but we still cannot understand why Ashley and LLambias have let this stupid situation at Newcastle continue for so long.

But with new owners to be installed very shortly we’ve given up hope of even trying – and put it down to the two of them  just being completely inept and incompetent, and not understanding the first thing about managing a football club.

That’s the best reason we can come up with, to explain their rather ridiculous and bizarre behavior over the last 4 weeks.

Comments welcome.

    This has only happened since they were both forced to model the new away kit.

    Rangerman, they do.
    But whilst it’s being sold , there should be some professionalism on the current owners behalf.

    14.14 Michael Owen has told Sky Sports News that he will not be signing a new contract at Newcastle. He has also confirmed that his preference is to stay in the Premier League, although he admits there is plenty of strong interest from abroad. Stay logged on as we bring you his frank and open interview shortly.

    Good riddance

    What is really disturbing about this article (which is probably just tabloid column-filling, by the way – since when does Taylor not issue his own statements??) is that, if true, it means that Ashley is once again failing to inform players.

    Yes, the players should be realistic about what can be expected, but:

    1. If the Managing Director says Big Al could be signed and then he’s not, who are they to believe?

    2. If Ashley really must keep the public in the dark, then why can he not at least talk to his employees?

    My guess is that the article this refers to is bunkum. If Taylor had something to say, he’d say it. He’s not exactly known for his long silences.

    Agree with the Michael Owen sentiments. He can take his smug sanctimonious self centred dish and bug off the Hull/Everton/ Wherever. And get them relegated too.

    I’d love to see Nobby back – but not on the pitch, guys – be realistic!

    The fact that we’re not seeing any direct quotes from players or management points to one thing: That everyone is being informed – even if they are not happy about what they are being told – but they are also bound (understandably) by a gagging order until the sale is done.

    So – it’s scary and frustrating, but let’s ignore the scare-mongering press and just wait. There is a hell of a lot going on that we don’t know about. Shame Ashley’s mob still have the comms skills of a pebble, but what’s new?

    I would have sold Owen and brought in Cisse last Summer, Cisse scores goals that win matches he scored the goal that won the game which kept them up.

    I do not know what Owen does or thinks, he doesnt seem to push harder in games where we can win, a very odd player.

    Smith would have had the guts to address the press and fans before getting on a helicopter and leaving the club he’d helped to relegate.
