'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Habib believes language is no barrier

Despite our back four looking like a veritable League of Nations, key lynchpin Habib Beye has revealed that their bizarre communication methods have not hindered the current unbeaten run the team has embarked on. Speaking to the Chronicle, Happy Days said:

'You have some Spanish players, Colo is from Argentina, Sebastien and me speak French, but we speak English and try to have a good communication. It's very important to talk. It's very important for us as a team to work very hard and have a good communication between us.

If we have a good defence, and keep a clean sheet every time, you can win every game. The manager works very hard every day to have a good team, and we are showing our quality.

It was important for us to keep the clean sheet. We kept clean sheets against Middlesbrough and Chelsea, and then we conceded two goals against Stoke City. We wanted to come back from that, and keep a clean sheet. We did that, and scored three goals, which was a good effort. It was the first away win this season, and winning away against Portsmouth is very good for us. Before the game, we were 18th in the table, and now we are 14th, and it's better to see Newcastle in this position in the league.'
