Habib Beye Could Return To Newcastle On Sunday


News that former Newcastle right back Habib Beye has been handed the chance to to make an appearance at St James’ Park this coming Sunday afternoon for Aston Villa.

Habib Beye – could play against Newcastle on Sunday

Habib Beye’s move to Aston Villa has been terrible for the player, mainly because their former manager Martin O’Neill, tended to play the same team every week and hardly used his squad wisely.

But Aston Villa’s  caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald intends to play the former Senegalese International in the Europa League game with Rapid Vienna in Austria tonight, to give the 32 year-old a chance.

Presumably a decent performance tonight could be followed up with a game against his former club at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon,  in the Premier League.

However, since Habib left the club when the ship was sinking, and sinking fast,  there is no guarantee he would get a good reception at the club from the Newcastle fans, even though he spent two very good seasons at Newcastle United.

A source close to Beye said today:

“Whatever people say, the fact of the matter is Habib left Newcastle very reluctantly.” “He is feeling at the moment that if he gets booed he gets booed, and he will just have to get on with it.”

“When he was here he enjoyed a great relationship with the fans.” “However, he knows that what happened 12 months ago has happened now, and had events transpired a different way then he could still be a Newcastle player.”

But beware of the players who left last summer trying to re-write history to their own advantage.

When the lads were crushed 6-1 at Leyton Orient in pre-season,  Beye was one of the players who wanted to move,  and indeed secured his move away from Newcastle just 6 days after that game.

Beye was a good player for Newcastle, but he’s now history, as the club looks for new heroes for the future – to take this club back where it belongs – back to the top.

But when we’ll be able achieve that looks like years away at the moment.

    ‘Beye was one of the players who wanted to move…’

    Since when has having a degree of common sense been a sin? Never mind we’ve got Perchy now, HA, HA!!

    If he had of stayed, he would have enjoyed his football a lot more winning the championship with us than warming the bench at villa. I recon he knows he made the wrong decision. However, I don’t think the fans should boo him, he did very well for us unlike some others who didn’t give a rats ass…

    I hope the fans don’t boo him as he was a very good player for us for two seasons. I wish he had decided to stay but didn’t and the rest is history.

    At 32 poor old Beye won’t have many years left and we have youngsters like Simpson, Perch and Taverner to improve our squad over the years……

    Up the toon!!!!
