Tiote Is Still Doubtful – Marveaux Is Out – Full Injury Update


Well would you believe it – Cheick Tiote is a doubt for Saturday after all.

Sylvain Marveaux – misses Man City game

After looking at his comments of yesterday, we thought the Ivorian would be ready to play on Saturday afternoon, but as we half expected, Alan Pardew has come out and said it’s still touch and go on Cheick.

In fact, if there’s any doubt at all about Cheick, then Danny Guthrie will likely continue to deputize for him on Saturday, and it will be another good chance for the former Liverpool player to show what he can do for Newcastle.

The news today is that Cheick Tiote, who seems desperate to be play at Manchester City, is indeed being assessed daily by the Newcastle medical team, so the Daily Mail report this morning  seems accurate after all – our mistake on that one – whoops.

It also looks like Cabaye will be ready to resume his starting position in the side,  after playing the full game for France last night in Paris.

But Sylvain Marveaux is not fit with his groin problem, and will not be in the squad that travels to the Etihad Stadium for Saturday’s tough game.

It was a groin problem that kept Sylvain out of the Rennes side from October of last year, for the rest of the season, so we have to hope it’s not the exact same injury.

A surprise is that Gabriel Obertan, who had that mysterious toe infection, may be fit to play on Saturday, and it could be that  some antibiotics cleared that problem up, but apparently he’s still not 100% certain to be ready for Saturday.

And Shola  Ameobi looks to be available for Saturday, and of course his younger brother Sammy could see some action on Saturday, after appearing twice for the England U21s in the last week.

This is what Alan Pardew told the local press today:

“Marveaux is definitely out. Shola will be involved as he’s back to fitness, so that is good news for us.”

“We are still sweating on Cheick and Obertan.”

We’re  also assuming Leon Best is fit again, after having two weeks to recover from the knocks he took for the Magpies’ cause, against Everton.

Newcastle should be able to field a strong side on Saturday, and it’s going to be very interesting to see how our lads perform against money-bags Manchester  City.

    Plz pardew dont start shola :S if were lucky he will hav a good game, but I can see him having his usual bad game. Also he wont keep up with the new pace of our side, last season we were much slower and he already cudnt keep up…

    we will be good if we get 3 points out of the next 3 games, chelsea, man city and united,, i still think our best side is:

    krul
    simpson saylor colo raylor

    chieck cabaye
    obertan jonas
    ben arfa
    ba

    i still believe that ben arfa is currently the most talented player on our squad,, he should be like our messi,,,,not as good though,,,,we need to give him his freedom and let him play his game!!! more playing ttime for arfa!!

    ________Krul_________
    Simpson Saylor Colo Raylor
    _____Guthrie Cabaye____
    Gosling Vuckic Gutierrez
    _______BA_______

    Five man midfield to break up the attacks and plenty of firepower going forward Gutierrez covers for Raylor and Gosling is a capable midfielder to come in and do a job. If Obertan is fit then move Gosling centre and Gabriel wide right. Tiote can slot in for someone if he’s fit, Lord knows we have enough centre mids

    ————–Krul
    Simpson Saylor Colo Raylor
    ———Cabaye Tiote
    Gosling Guthrie Guttierrez
    ————–Ba

    My team WWJBD mate providing Tiote is fit which he said himself he should be… also wouldnt start Obertan a would play Gosling on the right as he’s stronger and will also get stuck in with the crunching tackles =] and tbf deserves a chance

    Gt89 – that pretty much the team I’d go with but it will b gosling, santon or obertan on the right, it pretty much leaves tiote to ruff silva n mark him out the game n city don’t look half as effective when silvas out

    Jail – its a shame cos he is a class player when fit just shame its his groin a personally think this is just a minor injury.. but players with pace like him always get little daft niggles and muscle injurys.. a used to always get them until some ar*ehole killed me knee

    Id still go with
    Krul
    Simo Saylor Colo Raylor
    Obertan Tiote Cabaye Guti
    Best Ba

    Tbh Ba plays deep a lot so more like a 4-4-1-1 imo injuries permitting obviously

    Marvs injury was just unlucky nothing to do with being injury prone. Heitinga caught his leg and it pulled one way as Marv went to go the other freak accident thats all, no doubt if it was anyone else the same would of happened.

    If a person keeps banging his head he gets called accident prone,hence a player who is always getting injured…..

    he’s a good player when he gets focussed on the game he looks like he likes big games and he’s so quick hes good with the ball at his feet and is good in the air he can win balls in the air and can also hold the ball up as he’s suprisingly strong for his skinny build a think a partnership of a fully focussed Maiga and Ba would be pretty awesome like.. He will be focussed aswel as he wants to play for us so badly and wants to prove that wer right to want him he will defo score goals in the prem hes more suited to our league than france..

    Good CB from Lille would be Aurélien Chedjou but he’s cameroonian

    Aye mate Best leading the line with Ba going deep for the ball sounds like our A game to me

    davy
    Oh the kid who went on strike because Sochaux wouldnt discuss a deal with us has said that the deal was done before he went on strike…..reliable source mate. Nothing came of it because they didnt report us they merely threatened to in order to stop us being in the ear of their player

    To say Sochaux were in anyway messing us about is ignoring a load of facts

    Jail – hes only had 1 injury since he signed.. and he was out for ages because he had to have a groin operation due to him playing on before when he recieved bad medical advice… before his groin opp he was a regular starter and wasnt injury prone, so a dont think he’s injury prone a just think hes been unlucky the last year or so and he will when he’s fit be a regular

    Jail – I would love to think we would mate as he is equally adapt to playing LB aswell as CB so he can be our starter at LB but also when wer short he can easily fill in at CB and we have others for CB a think if we got him we could save money but not buying another CB
