Newcastle Injury Update – Ramage Out 6 Months

Pete Ramage has fairly quickly undergone surgery for the cruciate ligament (knee) injury he suffered last Sunday against Middlesbrough.

Rather surprisingly Peter was not sent over to Vail, Colorado to the Steadman-Hawkins clinic but was operated on in London. It could be that while the injury is of course serious, there were no complications.


Peter Ramage – out 6 months with cruciate ligament damage

The news after the operation is good as it was a complete success and it was said to be a 70% tear, which is quite serious of course..

It’s bad luck for Peter who was just waiting for a chance to impress the new manager when he suffered the worst injury of his career. Peter’s a good lad and dedicated to Newcastle and we wish him a speedy and a complete recovery.

Newcastle now have six injuries with Emre back on the injury list with a thigh strain.  Babayaro is still out with a groin strain but is due to return to training on 17rh September along with Joey Barton, who seems to be recovering well from his metatarsel fracture.

Emre 	        Thigh Muscle Strain 	   no return date
P Ramage 	Knee Injury 	           no return date
S Carr 	        Hamstring Injury 	   no return date
C Babayaro 	Groin Strain 	           17th Sep 07
J Barton 	Metatarsal Fracture 	   17th Sep 07
D Duff 	        Sprained Ankle 	           Nov 07

    Ramage may struggle to make the grade as a PL player but he’s North-East born and bread and gives his all for the cause……

    I was hoping I wouldn’t ever see this sort of inbred nonsense on this site. He might not be the best player around, but his attitude is fantastic and he doesn’t deserve to be crocked. As it is, it’s worked in our favour as his injury has seen Habib Beye brought in.

    Not a Peter Ramage fan myself , but seeing a whole hearted player getting a serious injury is sad.
