Damien Duff, our talented Irish winger, who is coming back from a terrible ankle injury, played another full 90 minutes against Middlesbrough yesterday afternoon, and scored another goal in a 4-1 defeat.
Damien Duff – on the comeback trail, he’s worth waiting for 😀
But itâ€™s apparently still too early for Damien to be included in the first team squad, as Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce told the nufc.co.uk site this morning:
“Damien played another 90 minutes and is getting stronger, but I don’t think he will be involved at all against Derby at the weekend.”
Perhaps Damien will be able to come back in one or more of our Christmas games. We know heâ€™ll get a terrific reception form the Newcastle fans, after what has been a career threatening injury, and so much worse than anybody had imagined.
Damien can be an important player for us through the rest of the season, thereâ€™s no doubt about.Â As weâ€™ve said before, we think Sam can get the very best out of Duff.Â He’ll be like a new player for us, and Newcastle fans know the very best of Damien Duff is definitely worth waiting for.
