Peter Ramage On His Way Back

Peter Ramage looks to be right on track to make a comeback in Newcastle’s first team before the end of the season and that would be just great news.

Peter had an ACL knee operation and seems to be progressing very well in his rehabilitation from that.


Peter Ramage – 6’1″ defender doing well in his rehabilitation

Now 24 years old, Peter started some light jogging this week since badly tearing his anterior cruciate ligament during the Middlesbrough game in August.

Ashington-born Peter seems delighted at his progress so far:

“I’ve started running, and it went well. I took it nice and easy, and did a few pitch runs,” “There were no problems, and hopefully I can step it up from here. It’s more than three months since the injury, and this is a halfway marker. I’m doing a day on, day off, and am not going to go overboard with it.”

“The main thing was that there was no reaction to it, and hopefully over the next couple of weeks I can step things up day by day.” “It was good to get my boots on, as it’s been a while. I had to dust them down a bit!”

Peter’s contract runs out in the summer so it would be good to see him return to action before then. Whether Newcastle will renew his contract in the summer is a complete unknown right now, but we do think Big Sam rates Peter, as a no nonsense defender.

Comments welcome.

    Im not convinced players of Ramages quality should really be capable of giving our first team any kind of boost. If he is happy enough to sit in the reserves and cover for us in the worst injury crisis’ then fair enough but I dont think he’s shown anything to warrant a more valuable role than that. You cant fault his commitment though, he seems like a good lad.

    I think ramage is a good utility player and some games looks solid enuf.He wont really make a difference and if enrique cant get in the team,then ramage wont either.

    i personally i think that he could be a gr8 defender with the right training, hes definately got talent hes big and strong and decent in the air so i say renew him for another year and see if sam can make him into a gr8 defender.

    i dont rate him at all, it strikes me as funny how ppl rate Ramage and at the same time love to hate bramble… Ramage is AT LEAST as bad as Bramble.

    i think he is good, come on every time he was played it was at right back or left back, and for a conventional centerback it is hard, if he is given a fair crack of the whip at cb then we may see good things out of him…

    while he is a geordie and a toon player i will support the lad

    I understand that, and whenever he play for us, i will support him too. But who would we remove in our central defense to make way for Ramage?… Roz?, Cacapa?, Taylor?, Faye?… And what if we buy Brown and Ben Haim?

    Anyone think signing cicinho is good idea, remember him being so good at attacking that he was preferred to beckham at real madrid, he’s currently unhappy at Roma. not necessarily play him at rb but rw, since there is no real cover for milner or someone competing for milner’s place. Arda and Cicinho mort go ahead!!

    A lot of teams have had great service from not so famous defenders who play well as part of a unit. Ramage needs to show he can do that with Stevie Taylor in next 12 months or go the way of Strola.

    I was impressed with his determination and guts but I do agree he is one level below that of the defenders we do possess now.

    And Bramble is definitely worse!
    Ask the Wigan fans 😀

    I didnt like Bramble neither, but i think Ramage gets less stick simply because he is local.
