Injuries And Suspension Continue To Disrupt Newcastle Side

10:55 am, Thursday, March 24th, 2011 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 46 Comments

Newcastle had Joey Barton back on Saturday, but were still without Leon Best, Stephen Ireland and Jose Enrique (for much of the game), because of their injuries.

Stephen Ireland – hopefully will make his debut against Wolves

And just when it looks like Best, Ireland and Enrique will be fit for the next game at home to Wolves, Cheick Tiote picked up his 10th yellow card of the season, and joined Ryan Taylor on suspension, and will miss the next two games.

Ryan has already served two games of his thee match ban, for being sent of on his return game against Bolton,  and should be ready for the game after Wolves, which is a tough game at Villa Park.

And skipper Kevin Nolan is on 9 yellow cards, so we hope he can avoid a 10th booking against Wolves.

Alan Pardew at the moment seems  pleased just to have Joey Barton back, and of course the Wolves game has become a massive one for Newcastle, after picking up just a single point in their last 3 league games.

This is what Alan Pardew said about having Joey back, but losing Cheick Tiote for two games:

“It’s typical of what we are having to deal with at the moment that as we get one important player back we lose another one.”

“We won’t have Cheick Tioté available against Wolves because he is suspended, but Joey is in there and that is a big boost for us.”

“It’s a very important game for us and we know that.” “You want players like Joey to be involved in games like this one.”

Joey Barton spoke at a charity dinner on Tuesday evening,  in aid of the Clarke Lister Foundation, and he said he still wanted to stay on Tyneside, but was a bit unhappy at having to take a pay cut to do so.

He still hopes something can be worked out with the club in the summer – so do we.

The last thing we want to hear in the next 9 days, is that another Newcastle player has been injured in training.

Comments welcome.

    I saw that but just wondered if any further details given or anything said of whats going on behing the scenes from the players view etc?

  • 4 Angryman the Angry fan // Mar 24, 2011 at 11:33 AM

    Told you so.
    i told everyone this 2-3 weeks ago. Remember, i was talking to an ex employee who is still highly thought of at the club and in football in general?

    There is alot more that will come to the fore over the coming weeks.

    All is not rosey, and its all down to one man Im afraid (Well one and 1/2 men coz dirty derek isnt a man)!!

    Have you heard Pardew mention the Carroll money recently?? 😉

  • 5 Angryman the Angry fan // Mar 24, 2011 at 11:42 AM

    Oh and since then, I have heard a tale or two about the HBA deal!!
    We agreed a fee of just over 3m for HBA with Marseille when we took him on loan!! Marseille said we could sign him for that amount if he played 21 times for NUFC, but NUFC could get him for the same price before them games were played!! All contracted!! Sounds well and good so far………
    Then Fat Maggot heard that 3 Major Players in Europe were willing to pay in excess of 7m for the player, if he could prove his fitness…..
    Fat Mike then kicked in his clause and bought him out right, and will look at offers above 7m for HBA!!
    Now this is not from the same source, maybe total boolox, but the fact of the matter is, i would NOT put it past the Maggot to have carried this out. Why was Pardew so Keen to sign him up when he hadnt even seen him play in black and white??

    All is not what it seems!!!

    stephen who…………

  • 7 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 11:58 AM

    angryman….why dont you just go and shoot your self…..your conspiracy theories are so lame i cant even be bothered to comment on them….twat

  • 8 Drona // Mar 24, 2011 at 11:58 AM

    @ angryman

    could you post what you posted earlier again? I’d like to read it 😛

  • 9 JohnnyBrookes // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:04 PM

    I’m not sure why everyone is so quick to dismiss what Angryman is saying, I have heard similar stories about the rubbish that goes on in the Club and Mike Ashley has been forced to admit in court that they put out messages to the fans that are not true.

    Its really not that difficult to believe surely?? Noone else finds it odd that Barton, Enrique don’t seem to be signing new deals?

  • 10 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:04 PM

    they all want us relegated – they want to sell our players and spent all the money on casino and nudy runs for deerek…….they hate us and they hired pardew cause he ows money to fat mike and dosnt do blowys…..they hate us with a passion – and they also ate all the pies at st james…….
    get a grip//////wonkers

  • 11 Lynxie // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:04 PM

    Thats nowt, aparrently when we won the fairs cup it wasn’t in Budapest, it was filmed in a hangar in California. No wait, that was the moon landings sorry.

  • 12 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:11 PM

    lynxie….both the moon landing and us winning any cup are equaly hard to believe

  • 13 Lynxie // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:16 PM

    now that you mention it, if you stick a space helmet on Bobby Moncur, he looks just like………
    Buzz Aldrin

  • 14 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:35 PM

    think we should stick a space helmet on angryman as he clearly is on a different planet and this oxygen might be bad for him…he does sound _delirious dosnt he|_?

  • 15 Lynxie // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:43 PM

    I think it is a conspiracy that Pardew is going to discipline Leon best without even finding out what Lionel Ritchie was up to on Friday night. It could easilly have been mistaken identity

  • 16 Angryman the Angry fan // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:43 PM

    i will be reporting you for stalking shortly!! On and on and on and on!!
    And your intelligent response of ‘twat’ larvley!!

    Not asking you Mike sha88ers to believe me boys, dont really care if you dont, just reporting on what I hear, much like 99% of people on a blog!!

    TWAT indeed!

  • 18 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:49 PM

    i got an alibi for lionel…..he was playing at hanging rock macedon ranges in melbourne australia on friday….it defo couldnt have been best….cause he was singing all night long..

  • 19 Angryman the Angry fan // Mar 24, 2011 at 12:51 PM

    Basically at one opf my kids footy matches, i was speaking to an excellent source who ststed the following in brief:
    JB will have to take a substantial pay cut and short term contract if he wants to stay!
    All the players in a debate with the lovely D.Lambyarse have been told, after the sale of Carroll that new contracts will negototiated on club terms and if they dont like it…GO!!
    Pardew has been told he will NOT get all the Carroll money for team rebuilding and must stop mentioning it in press conferences.
    Inviting offers for Jose.
    Fat Maggot only willing to invest in bringing on the youngsters, people who he has not paid a fee for, in order to generate maximum profit.
    Few more bits n bobs…. Those are the general ones….

    The HBA mallarky, well that was from someone else and as stated maybe bollox, so why the originally named ‘shearermania’ has took a fascination with me is well beyond me??

    The lad must have issues

    unfortunately we cant lynxie you….got that lynxie good one eh

  • 39 Lynxie // Mar 24, 2011 at 1:25 PM


    LOL, clever play on words!

  • 40 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 1:32 PM

    lynx was saving that one…..guess angry went moonwalking

  • 41 Lynxie // Mar 24, 2011 at 1:32 PM

    Positive spin:

    Wolves rae below us in the league.
    I would rather be playing them at SJP than Molyneux at this stage of the year.
    We totally outplayed them at thier place despite the bully boy tactics they used.
    Mick McCarthy is a bigger cock than Pardew.
    They only have one decent player (Jarvis).
    If we beat them, we are almost over the line, safe.
    Other teams also have to start playing like champions to overhaul us (not gonna happen with Blackpool,, Blackburn, WBA, Wigan, Villa.
    We still have a good chance of at least a point at Blackpool (A), Villa (A), WBA (H), Birmingham (H).
    4 more points will do it, that means West Ham, Wigan and Wolves have to win about 3 or 4 games, not likely.

  • 42 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 1:37 PM

    can remember perchy fouling jarvis in the box at the molineaux…..ref didnt see it,,,,,
    o’hara is good i n the midle i must say,,,,,but im with you 3 points and we should be almost safe

  • 43 Lynxie // Mar 24, 2011 at 1:39 PM

    Shite I forgot about OHara, hes a good player that lad, we will need to be all over them in midfield, non tacklers and cowards need not apply.

  • 44 shearermania // Mar 24, 2011 at 1:44 PM

    non tacklers eh…..which leaves us with? guthrie

  • 45 Davies // Mar 24, 2011 at 2:28 PM

    Sorry it’s late, but: Yo momma’s so fat the btich got her own postcode. Not directed at anyone in particular.

    Angryman – Chin up fella. Have a smile. You might like it. I’m not saying what you’ve put up isn’t true; I don’t know if it is (none of us do!), but it all sounds a bit too well thought out for our current regime. Time will tell, fella.

  • 46 Angryman the Angry fan // Mar 24, 2011 at 3:08 PM

    Oh dear Shearermania, you upset with me??
    I will go to bed tonight really upset with the fact that you think im not a true fan!!

    Gutted, it means ive wasted tens of thousands of pounds going to 90% of matches, home and away for the last 28 years????

    Oh and not to mention the reserve games, which i have attended my fair share of.
    I also was one of the tits that bought a bond once upon a long ago……..

    Of course i cannot prove this here online, as im talking via a keyboard just like you tough lad. But what i will say is, because i am at risk of bringing the club to its knees with my attitude and negativity, i shall hand in my 2 season tickets this year, as i love the club sooooo much that i dont want ot upset you, or ‘THE REAL FANS’ anymore.

    Your funny, and your last post shows all on here your level of intellect 😉

    Well done son x

    Old adversary, I had to take it at face value and have never said it was true mate. I do know the guy and most of you TRUE FANS on here will know of him also, and i wondered soes he have any reason to lie ? I dont know……and you are 100% correct that we dont know if its true and i agree, it does sound far too well thought out for this shower. But hey. I say it how i see it.

    I dont abuse unless abused.

    And i always give 100% support to the team.
    And Shearermania, the REAL TRUE fan, already having a veiled dig at players…….and it aint the first time!!

    Makes you laugh dont it
