Good News On The Newcastle Injury Front


Newcastle will get one of their top defenders back soon, and the news is that right full-back Danny Simpson is available to play on Thursday night against Bordeaux, after finally recovering from the hamstring strain he picked up at against Atromitos in the Europa League qualifying round in late August.

Danny Simpson – in action is his last game against Atromitos

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was talking about Danny in his press conference today, and he had this to say about the former Manchester United defender:

“Danny’s available, and I think we’ve missed him to be honest.” I think, defensively, we’re at our max – I’ve not got the options I would like.”

But it looks like Fab Coloccini will not be risked on Thursday night, although the Newcastle captain may be able to start against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon at St. James’ Park.

And it appears that Steven Taylor will be out for both the upcoming important matches, and will be given a chance to fully recover from his hamstring strain he picked up last Sunday at Reading, to be able to face Sunderland two weeks on Sunday at the Stadium Of Light.

And goalkeeper Tim Krul is still recovering from the elbow injury he picked up while on international duty with the Netherlands squad last month, and it looks like Tim will be ready to return to action after the International break.

Slowly but surely it seems that some of our top players are beginning to come back, with Yohan Cabaye fit again after his dental problems, that kept him out of the team for Sunday’s game at Reading.

Hopefully things are starting to  look up a little for Newcastle.

    Watching Derek get made into a canoe of a ferocious tribe of Papua headhunters before being made into a lifeboat is too good for Ashley.

    Nice one JFA..

    This team might line up tomorrow:
    Elliott
    Simmo–Willo–Perch–Santon
    Bigi– Anita
    Obertan–Ben Arfa– Ferguson
    Cisse
    Subs: Harps,Tav,Gosling,Marv,Amal,Sammy,Shola
    Resting Ba, Cabaye and Tiote for Manu Game. I have a funny feeling Shola might start alongside Ba in that one like last years 3-0.

    There’s been quite a few people who underestimated Simmo’s contribution to our team, we’ve really missed him in our defense.

    You can’t really blame Pardew for the lack of transfers like. For all we know Debuchy was his number one target but Mike & Derek could not get the deal done. Shame, Debuchy and Ben Arfa down the right hand side would have been awesome.

    just hope we do not pick up any more injuries over next couple of games, the mackems game to me is more important than our next two. IMO

    Naa I know, just that he is the one who’s ultimately responsible- if he wanted him that much surely he would’ve made a point of it.

    I only say this because I can’t see us finishing higher than manure and we need to take three points off the mackems, I would love to win the next three games obviously but just love to beat them lot. I am rambling so will stop now 🙂

    Just had a horrible thought there reading about the international break,well we know that if the deal with Virgin money is cancelled there must be a new deal in place and looking at recent history they wait until an international break before announcing any bad news,I wonder what its going to be this time in the run up to the Christmas sales.

    Cupid & Toonboy…I don’t think any of you are thick 😀 it is probably a case of us foreigner who have to learn a second or third language have to put much more effort into it.

    My second language is English and my third language is German. I understand most Swedish and Norwegian as well. (alot of work mate ;D) lol

    RP is a young accent in linguistic terms. The phrase Received Pronunciation was coined in 1869 by the linguist, A J Ellis, but it only became a widely used term later used to describe the accent of the social elite. The definition of ‘received’ conveys its original meaning of ‘accepted’ or ‘approved’ – as in ‘received wisdom’. We can trace the origins of RP back to the public schools and universities of nineteenth-century Britain.

    Boarding schools such as Eton and Winchester and Universities such as Oxford and Cambridge made it a socially exclusive accent 😀 (now it is just BCC English).

    It is how I have learned English, since ‘RP’ or Oxford English is regionally non-specific, and does not contain any clues about one’s geographic background. In other words, they avoid non-standard grammatical constructions and localized vocabulary characteristic regional dialects. (I had to look this up :D) lol

    Recent estimates suggest only 2% of the UK population speak it. (so you are excused) 😀

    Tequilamag @ # 15

    I think there is a suspicion of some people actually judging a player by where he comes from and he along with Gabby is seen as a manure cast off.

    The lad is a solid defender he may well be not so good as an attacking force but he is definitely a solid defender.

    Cupid…just saw it 😀

    TADS…what I meant was the English I have learned is what’s called ‘RP’ or Oxford English.

    ..and the reason is to avoid non-standard grammatical constructions and so on 🙂 The dialect I have is probably a bit Danish lol

    True story, when I lived in London folks (or some) thought I was Irish; they just couldn’t pinpoint my dialect…

    Joe hart and the post and crossbar are the only thing keeping citeh in this game’
    Glad simmo’s back we desperatly need some stabilty restoring to our back 4 because we’ve been shambolic at the back this season with simmo n hopefully colo back we should look a bit more balanced and organised at the back

    Any news on when kruls back thought he was only supposed to be out for a couple of games!

    Jesper lots of English words and placenames originated from Denmark , those Vikings had a lot to answer. Any tow with a by on the end for example, though I am sure you knew that.
    My mates Danish girlnfriend said she found the NE dialect the easiest to understand as she found many similarities,

    A bloody idiot poster on teamtalk called onlyonesirbob, is saying he has supporrted MA and AP but is finding it much harder to do now beacuse of the way things are going at the club now.

    Give me frigan strength, how are things going at the club, not bad at all we have lost once we have big injuries to the core of the team and still have shown spirit to get us through difficult games, i would just love to know what the problem is with this so called supporter of the club and he is supposed to be a positive one at that

    He says its all,been a smokescreen our supposed signings so AP, Graham Carr, are just telling straight ace lies.

    Thought i would get that of my chest, I FEEL LIKE STROKING THE IDIOTS CHIN!

    Who knows mate, not much info about what the injury is other than its his elbow. I think Harps and Elliot have done ok. especially surprised as to how good Elliot has been but Krul is a cut above.

    tads, agreed mate injuries have really not helped us so far. Hopefully we are getting over that soon. International break will help, if we are back to full strength after that I reckon we will see performances improve.

    TMDS gotta be said mate! I don’t like saying it and it really sticks in my throat but Here is yet another season where English teams get totally and comprehensively outsang by the opposition! It NEVER use to be like that but shows what the Prem has become. Chelsea in last years Champions League final was embarrassing and Man Utd at home to Shalke was just as bad!!! Just wish we had the same experience as the Bundesliga! Lucky buggars!!
