Habib Beye: ‘We Should Have Kept the 1-1 Scoreline’

Newcastle’s new boy Habib Beye reported feels sorry for the Toon Army for the 2-1 defeat against the Royals. Senegalese defender said that when we have the 1-1 draw, we should have playing more cautious and get ready for any possible last minutes blow.

“It was a long ball into the box and we didn’t win the second ball, which meant Long was able to get his shot in.” Said Beye.

Newcastle was a goal behind from Kitson long shots, but it was Michael Duberry who gives the visitor an equalizer. But, Newcastle who is failed to create any real chances on their way to attack the home side being left dejected when Shane Long’s late winner saw Steve Coppell’s side take all three points.

Sam Allardyce once again being under critism for what has been said as a negative football. It seems that he is once again intructing his players to sit down and doing the counter attack. This has proven to be his wrong tactical option.

I guess, Big Sam have been put his faith for the United’s four backs too high. I agree with him that we have quality in our back four sides, but no matter how good they are, there’s always an opportunity for our opponent to take advantage for any small chances come their way to produce the goal.

“We’ve lost again and we have to work hard to make sure we make things better for everybody at home to Portsmouth.” Beye added more.

Well, against Portsmouth at home, we have more greater chance to win the game. Portsmouth match will be our six home wins. If then we have lost again, I’m not sure about the future of Sam Allardyce. I hope he will learn from last game at Madejski.
