Ben Arfa – ‘He Can Be Fronted By 3 Defenders And He’ll Just Go Straight At Them’

8 years ago

After spending twenty years at Newcastle as man and boy, it is little wonder Steve Harper still gets a little confused about who is ‘we’ when talking about ‘his’ team.

This morning on Talksport he gave an entertaining interview and of course the talk turned to Newcastle United.

Our ex-keeper fancies a draw tonight but this is what he had to say about one of Newcastle’s players when asked;

“Newcastle were looking for more consistency from Ben Arfa and they are certainly getting that.

We (Hull) kept him quiet last week but he is a special player. One of the few I’ve seen at Newcastle who gets the ball and can be fronted by three defenders, he won’t check back and go square, he will just go straight at them and that’s why the fans love him.”

I wouldn’t mind winning a few trophies but there is surely nothing better than being at the match and having a player like Hatem Ben Arfa (Ben Arfa To Score First Goal 13/1 – Ben Arfa to score a goal 17/4) on your side.

Yes he had a shocker against Hull but I don’t blame Alan Pardew for keeping him on as we know what he is capable of at any time.

Here’s hoping Alan Pardew gives Hatem the platform to do his stuff tonight.
