Two Players Injured – Guthrie Out For Six Weeks

Newcastle had a lot of injuries earlier this year.

Danny Guthrie – could be out up to 6 weeks

And it seems no time has been lost as injuries already have started to mount up after the first pre-season game, with both Danny Guthrie and Shane Ferguson both being injured during last night’s game at Darlington.

And both Danny Guthrie and Shane Ferguson will now unfortunately miss the American tour over the next ten days or so.

Guthrie left the field after just the 11th minute and it seemed to be a groin injury, and 19 year-old Shane Ferguson was substituted at half-time after colliding with big 6′ 7″ goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Shane seemed to have injured his leg.

This is what Alan pardew said this morning about the injuries:

“That’s further bad news for us because they both don’t look good,”

One’s gone for an X-ray – Fergie – and the other, Danny, has picked up an injury that we think he’s had before.”

“That could be him out for between six to eight weeks.”

The injuries will be a blow to both players, and especially to Danny Guthrie, who had similar injuuries last season at this time,  that kept him out of action for a few months.

Danny is also in the last year of his contract,  and will hope to get an extended deal at Newcastle, but he’ll need to push for a first team place this season, to get that.

So the crowd trouble and injuries have overshadowed what happened last night,  when Newcastle fans saw impressive performances from both Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye, and these two lads could be massive players for Newcastle going forward.

Comments welcome.

    I just ID’ed someone on the pitch, it’s that fat geordie who is at every match and has hair a bit like Tim Krul brown, and they show him on match of the day with the NUFC supporters nearly every game. hahaha be a shame if he got banned, hes a legend.

    Pardew should alert on Shane injury that we need more signing especially Left back position. What happen if Shane injured and Jose leave. Who’ll play there ? Perch ? What the nightmare !

    IMO, Shane is not quite ready for 90 mins play time (especially hardcore PRM) don’t mind 30-40 games per season. That’s mean we have no backup on the left side at all.

    Every year we Play darlo, every year some f11cka gets injured! When Barton scored his goal did no one pick up on the fact their defender tried to take him out at the knee??

    Honestly, why play these teams?? Arrange championship friendless more competitive and less likely to want to get injured themselves!

    well chaps, i was at the game last night, to be honest, it was pretty ordinary in my view. The game will be forgotten about due to the pitch invation, but the plusses were having ben arfa back, he wanted the ball which was good to see and I think the more and more he plays he will be tip top and key for us. I did like Cabaye, looked and wanted the ball at every occassion he could get it. only gave the ball away once in the time he was on and tried a couple of long range shots which was good to see. I think him and barton will link up very well, with tiote in the middle. ben arfa on the right of a 3 pin attack ba in the middle and someone else to the left. Taylor and Willo were rarely troubled, I think Taylor and Colo will start the season at the heart of the defence. Forster looked solid and was pleased he played in goal. In the end a comfortable night for newcastle. I would hope the competition gets better from now on until the big kick off.
