Oba Martins Back for Crucial Game At West Brom


The official Newcastle United site has posted some news that Oba Martins should be fit for the game at WBA on Saturday.

Oba – good news – back for the WBA game

The Nigerian striker has been out since scoring the second goal, in our only away win so far this season, the 3-0 win at Portsmouth in December.

Oba was operated on by the world famous groin surgeon Dr Ulrike Muschaweck at her clinic in Munich, Germany, in early January.

Joe Kinnear is obviously pleased with Oba being fit for Saturday, in a game we must win and cannot possibly afford to lose.

Joe said this afternoon to nufvTV:

“Hopefully we’ll have Oba fit for West Brom which is a big boost,” “His pace is always a massive threat and we’re looking forward to having him back.”

We are assuming there are still some signings to be announced by Newcastle, although the clock ticks on.

The transfer figures are have at the moment are that £14M has come into the club for Given and N’Zobia, and Newcastle have so far paid out £4M for Kevin Nolan.

The £6M fee for N’Zogbia included Ryan Taylor coming the other way, and of course Peter Lovenkrands was a free agent.

This means Newcastle are better off by £10M in the transfer window right now, but we still hopefully await more signings.

Things have gone awfully quiet on the official site, and some of the signings could well be delayed, because of the inclement weather in England.

We hope so, but the club had never been great for updating fans on what’s happening.

We’ll report any new signings as they are reported on the official site, but this is a bit like watching the clock tick by up the 12 noon in the movie High Noon – for those old guys reading this.   :D.

    is anybody else optimistic for an after 5pm signing?

    cant help feeling it would have went back to david craig and said no more business if we were done.

    still think we could have ebondo or M’bia

    KingKevwynward – All those rumours were dispelled.

    Anyway, so happy to have Martins back, love the guy!

    Hopefully Carroll partners him, not Ameobi, even though he’s done allright this season.

    Im glad we dident swap Bent for Martins.

    Bent is shit compared to Martins. Im glad im not a spurs fan. All that money and they are still shit, with a crook as a manager.

    It must be fustrating being a spud, being in the shadows of Arsenal, NUFC etc

    Oba is guaranteed to get us 10 goals a season. Some saviour whom we wanted to swap for Darren Bent. Oba will be up for it now…not. Relegation. Nice little earner this January Mike.

    Sorry Ed but im almost certain we wont be seeing anything like this. Paper work confirming the move/fee had to be with the FA by 5, they’re only being lenient with regards to medicals, personal terms going through due to weather.

    Incredibly glad Oba’s back. We’re desperate for his pace up front. Agree with you T_T in that i hope he is given Carroll as a partner. Carroll was winning near enough everything in the air against the scum and although we’ve seen a change in form from shola, his slow legs and footballing brain meant he wasnt getting on the end of anything Carroll knocked on-Oba will be a completly different story. Along with that, he creates something out of nothing. So glad we have him back.

    The Spurs are not as bad as us. Cup last year. Final this year. A cup every ten years or so. Do you rate the current team? Which squad would you rather have?

    Glad to have Oba back up and running. I can’t see us announcing any other signings today. Shame, but not the end of the world.
