We expect Kevin Keegan to name an unchanged team tomorrow against Fulham as James Milner and Emre are still out injured.
James Milner – out until Sunderland game on 20th April?
Kevin says today that both Emre and James Milner are still 2-3 weeks from returns. We’re not surprised that James is still 2 weeks away but a couple of weeks ago we were told that Emre was almost fit?
Let’s take a look at what Kevin Keegan said this morning:
“James still has a protective shoe on his foot and will be out for around three weeks.”
“Emre is the same and I think both players could be looking to return for the derby game with Sunderland.”
“Stephen Carr is also about two to three weeks away and Shay Given is out for six weeks.”
“That means I’ll have the same squad for Fulham which I did for Birmingham.”
The England Under-21 winger still has a protective boot on his foot and of course Stephen Carr is out injured again, with a hamstring strain – big big surprise. The rumors we hear are that Stephen actually has his own bed in the treatment room, he’s there so much.
But Stephen’s contract runs out in the summer and he will not be around come August, and hopefully we’ll get some full backs who are able to play most weeks, and eran their big wages, unlike Carr. It’s even money whether Carr has already played his last game for the Magpies.
Ir’s not too bad to start the game with the team that did so well in the second half last Monday night, but the lads will have to start doing well from the very first kick off tomorrow. If they do that we have our best chances of a win in many a long day. 😀
