Newcastle Injury Update – Simpson Doubtful – Tiote Not Doubtful

10:25 am, Saturday, May 5th, 2012 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 33 Comments

The last question Alan Pardew was asked at the end of his news conference yesterday, was what was the fitness of two of his players - Danny Simpson and Cheick Tiote.

Tiote collides with John Mikel Obi on Wednesday night

Danny has had an ankle knock, but even if he’s fit for tomorrow, we fully expect Perchinho to be at right-back for the Magpies against league leaders Manchester City.

It will be one of  Newcastle’s biggest games for a few seasons, that’s for sure.

The Brazilian-born Newcastle player (read that as Mansfield), has been a star man for Newcastle this year, and gave another very competent performance for Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Newcastle went 4 points clear of Chelsea with the 2-0 win, and manager Alan Pardew said this about the fitness of Danny and Cheick yesterday:

“Danny Simpson is a doubt for the game.” “Cheick Tiote is not doubtful at all.”

And as he was talking about Cheick,  a smile came over Alan’s face as if to say – I couldn’t even stop him playing if I wanted to.

Cheick suffered a severe gash to his face when he got an elbow from John Mikel Obi, after both players jumped for a high ball in the second half.

But Cheick has already said he will be fit to the game, which Tiote has said is the biggest game Newcastle have been in since he arrived on Tyneside – and that seems like an accurate portrayal of the game.

And with Perchinho so good once again at Chelsea, we think he’s right back for the next two games, and what a success story the 26 year-old has been this year.

Comments welcome.

  • 13 Indian Magpie // May 5, 2012 at 10:38 AM

    For Tiote

    The saying is “He Killed 3 birds with 1 stone”

  • 14 CODARM (The poster formely known as Ibizatoon) // May 5, 2012 at 10:38 AM

    Yeah Indian…include an acceptance speech! :)

    As to your game today, just think of Perch and Shola and you’ll get the inspiration you need. Good luck.

  • 15 Indian Magpie // May 5, 2012 at 10:39 AM

  • 16 CODARM (The poster formely known as Ibizatoon) // May 5, 2012 at 10:39 AM

  • 17 Indian Magpie // May 5, 2012 at 10:40 AM

    Chieck Tiotes Cowboy Boots are made from real cowboys.

    He can also make an onion cry.

  • 22 toonarmydownsouth // May 5, 2012 at 10:43 AM

    They tried to release a tiote tiolet paper but it wouldnt take sh!t from any1!

  • 23 Lynxie // May 5, 2012 at 10:44 AM

    Cheick Tiote can piss his name into concrete

  • 24 Indian Magpie // May 5, 2012 at 10:44 AM

    Shearer.Milburn

    was the bird alive after that

  • 25 CODARM (The poster formely known as Ibizatoon) // May 5, 2012 at 10:45 AM

    Indian…sure

  • 26 Lynxie // May 5, 2012 at 10:45 AM

    The dark is afraid of Cheick Tiote.

  • 27 check the toastie // May 5, 2012 at 10:51 AM

    Simmo is a doubt as he has been dropped for being poo.

  • 28 Shearer.Milburn // May 5, 2012 at 10:53 AM

    The bird is sadly deceased… Like de Jong will be if he tries any of his antics tomorrow!!!

  • 29 Johann // May 5, 2012 at 10:58 AM

    Would be horrific if Danny was to start instead of Perch. Danny´s positional abilities are being found out nearly every game.

  • 30 woolerbill // May 5, 2012 at 11:29 AM

    Danny Simpson will not play for us again, he and his wife want to move.

  • 31 cupiddstunt // May 5, 2012 at 11:32 AM

    Funny how the Tiote puns don’t take into account the time he has lost to injury this season.

    Not be long before posters on here start on how injury prone he is. ;-)

  • 32 toonincheek // May 5, 2012 at 11:36 AM

    Who can take the credit for the name Perchinho?

    Who was first?

  • 33 Hobs // May 5, 2012 at 11:55 AM

    Never mind Krul, Ba or Cisse.

    Perch is player of the season, no doubt about it! No other player is even close to exceed their expectations as much as Perch has done. Playing out of positions and in new positions all the time, and noone thought he was good enough for the Premier League last summer.

    He’s been one of our most important players this season, filling in everywhere it’s been needed and doing a fantastic job.

    Well done Perchy!
