Four Newcastle Players Have Achilles Tendinopathy Injuries


Joe Kinnear has said that Habib Beye has only an even chance of returning to the team for this weekend’s trip to Everton.

Habib Beye – has Achilles Tendinopathy injury

The Senegal star has had a niggling Achilles Tendinopathy injury since the 3-0 defeat at Arsenal in late August.

And it’s interesting, at least to us, to note that Ignacio Gonzalez has picked up a similar injury, and is out until October 20th, so that makes four players currently out with the same injury. The other two are Mark Viduka and Alan Smith.

Beye has returned to light training and with the Everton game on Sunday Joe Kinnear thinks Habib has an outside chance of making the squad.

“As far as Habib’s concerned, he’s joining the first-team squad for training on Thursday,” explained Joe.

“I’d say that his chances of coming back are 50-50.”

Beye didn’t train with the rest of ther lads yesterday, and Andy Carroll and Kazenga LuaLua, who returned to training Tuesday, worked on building their fitness one on one with physio Dave Henderson.

We are at the top of the Physioroom.com Injury Table with 10 injuries, with Chelsea now in second place with just 7 – so our injuries are again as bad as ever. 

With such a small squad that’s not good news that we are at the top of the table – that’s for sure, but this is what Keegan continually warned about, and we didn’t bring in enough players.   🙁

Comments welcome.

    If you are hinting that this Achilles injury is being used as a skive, well then I agree with you!

    Im no physio or trained in sports science, but is has to be more than coincidence this?

    There must be a common link as to how this/these injuries have occurred.

    Something in the training – boots perhaps?

    Not good really is it. Dare you say that KK was right when he said about the injuries.

    Interesting fact – if you look at the injuries in physioroom.com, we are the only club with Achilles Tendinopathy injuries.

    4 such injuries suggest it is still our training ground that is at fault.

    Didn’t Souness say our training pitch was too hard, and that caused a lot of injuries?

    Didn’t Keegan promise us the fittest squad in the Premier League. Instead we’ve been left with the most injured squad in the premier league. Cheers Kev 🙁

    Sounds odd that we hve so many of the same injuries. Surely something wrong in the training. KK did boast at one stage that we would have the fittest squad in the premiership, how wrog could he get. Most of the injuries started when he was in charge.

    We’ve always had a lot of tendon injuries, you’d know that if you were actual fans and not just bored wind up merchants.

    Do we still run on the beach? To my knowledge we were the only team to do so. I always felt this was the reason for so many hamstring injuries.

    I’ve trolled quite a lot of places quite a lot of times. However, nufcblog is not one of them. I really do hate Southerners and I really am a Newcastle and Rangers fan. To be honest I’m not sure about you, you’re either a Southern WUM or a plastic Geordie. To be fair, it’s probably the latter. So you can run along to London any time you like as you’re not really doing any good up here.

    training ground, staff, climate, recruiting injury prone players (faye putting himself about in training, someone mention that as a reason for him being sold, lol)

    take your pick as to why as to why we have so many out

    muscle strains (think these acchilles injuries fall in there) seem common for us, last season we had a fair few out with hamstring strains at the same time

    I wonder if they all do a proper warm up and cool down

    irish_al – you’re right, we’ve always suffered badly with injuries. But when your manager comes out in pre-season and promises the fittest squad in the premier league is it wrong to assume he has put measures in place to deal with the injury problem. And, by the same token, is it wrong to assume he should be attributed with some of the blame when we yet again find ourselves at the top of the physioroom league?

    On the same note, your posts say a lot about what kind of Newcastle ‘fan’ (ahahahaha) you are. I seriously doubt you’ve even been to St. James’ Park. Like that sad act from London (capital of suicide bombings and knife crime lol) Spyro who has to lie about driving up to watch the match. Give me a break.

    Like I said, I’ve never trolled this blog. But being experienced as I am in trolling, I can see what you and Spyro do. Subtle (well, not exactly subtle) little digs at the club and the fans. You do nothing but cause trouble. Ed, I have ran forums and internet communities before and I can tell you the only way to ensure your site does not stagnate and die is to silence or ban whichever side is in the minority in as big a debate as the Keegan one. How Toon Chicken can defend himself for continually attacking a man who built the modern day Newcastle United is bewildering but I do have a sort of twisted admiration for his persistence. I hope my words will be of some help, it’s just advice and I hope you consider what I’ve said.

    Hey Chicken

    Some not all

    Guierrez was injured on internatial duty, impact injury

    Viduka is a perenial concern

    Ngo Baheng done his knee, not sure if it was in training or match (reserves) conditions

    perhaps it failings by the people under keegans command

    bit like the issues with the people under ashley, is he to blame for employing them or are they to blame for the job they’ve done

    back to the point though, i don’t think keegan would of had a lot to do with physio or fitness training, i know the comments you mentioned but actions speak louder than words

    Above comment not directed at you, irish_al – good points there mate. Although I do think Keegan would be partially responsible for physio and fitness training.

    By that I mean it is his duty to be involved in all first team matters – including training, physio, nutrition – he should be calling the shots, even if he has a team advising him.

    Man United had a horrendous injury list at the start of the season – does that make Ferguson a bad manager?

    would also suggest too many sprinting type exercises without sufficent warm ups or stretches for the short muscles.

    the one and only thing Allardyce was right about was injuries. We should be looking at Aerobics, aqua aerobics, yoga etc, not just macho style traditional methods.

    Nick – agree with you there mate. I really thought we were on to something there. I know we still suffered a lot of injuries under BSA but I suppose it takes a while to feel the benefit of that type of system.
