The worst possible news about Joey Bartons’ knee injury he picked up on Saturday, is that he will be out for eight weeks. Oh no. 🙁
Joey Barton – out for up to 8 weeks
After being taken off after just 15 minutes on Saturday against Wigan Athletic, Joey Barton has been assessed by the Newcastle United medical team, and had a scan on his injured right knee yesterday.
But the news is hardly good, and it has been confirmed that Joey has damaged the medial ligament in his right knee. That’s not good news, and Joey will be out for eight weeks.
Does anybody know of any good news at all this morning about Newcastle?
This is numbingly bad news about a player who has looked very very good in the last few games.
Oh well, we must be going to get some good news soon – but this is more reason to bring in new players in the January transfer window.
Of course before then, we still have to sort out who will own the club at that time, and who the new permanent manager will be – picky picky.
