Sebastien Bassong who has been our best player throughout the season still thinks Newcastle can beat the drop and propel themselves to safety. Arriving from France for as little as 3/4’s of a million, Sebastien has aspired to Newcastle’s best center back this season, if not one of the best center backs in the Premier League. Perhaps I’m a little too biased! However he’s been a brilliant figure this season and will get snapped up if we go down, which seems more and more likely.
Speaking today Bassong said :
“Honestly, I have enjoyed the season because it is my first in England and the Premier League is the best championship,”
“But the situation of Newcastle makes me a little sad because I don’t want to help them go down in my first season, so I will try to help my team stay up.”
Asked on his future if the Toon go down or not, Bassong replied :
“I am not thinking about my future. The most important thing is staying up.
“We will think about my future at the end of the season – hopefully after we have stayed up.”
We really hope that the lads pick up 2 more wins but I really can’t see that happening. Stranger things have happened though.
Comments appreciated 🙂
