Super Seb hailed

As a definite man of the moment for NUFC, Seb Bassong has drawn a lot of praise from media quarters with his commanding performances of late. Joe Kinnear has not left this unnoticed and heaped praise aplenty on our French Under 21 international, saying:

'He has probably been our biggest plus, Sebastien, since I put him in there. I was led to believe when I got here that he was a left full-back, but since he has been shifted to the middle he has been one of our best players.

He has made it very difficult for me to leave him out, and with Steven Taylor being injured, he has seized it. He and Coloccini have been outstanding for us. Everybody else now is seeing a new player. Most of the players, if they are honest, didn't think that Sebastien would still be in the side as he is now. But he has probably been one of our better players on a regular basis.'
