There’s bad news from Kevin Keegan today regarding our injury prone trio of Emre, Viduka and Carr.
Kevin Keegan – all three will miss out tomorrow
We suppose it’s not surprising that they are still not fit and will still be out for a couple of weeks yet. All three were left at home when the Newcastle squad left for their Liverpool base today,
Kevin said today:
â€œViduka is still another week away, but if he has no more set-backs then he should be back for our game at Birmingham City a week on Monday night.”
“Emre is two weeks ago, with Carr not expected back for three weeks because of his hamstring injury.”
â€œBut Nicky Butt is OK, despite coming off against Blackburn.â€
â€œWe have not got much cover if we pick up any more injuries to our defenders, and (newly signed) Lamine Diatta will provide this.â€
Well it’s all hands to the pump but how these three continue to be unavailable, when we were told a couple weeks back they were just niggly little injuries is almost beyond belief.
We’ll leave it at that, but we’re a little peeved that these three, especially Emre and Viduka have been unable to assist the club in their time of needs for several weeks now.Â When we buy players in the summer, we should ensure they can play 40-50 games a season.
These three have never been able to do that and it wouldn’t surprise us if Emre is the only one still at the club in August.
