Good News On The Newcastle Injury Front

6:04 pm, Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 107 Comments

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.

  • 2 IITianToon // Oct 3, 2012 at 6:13 PM

    Nice one JFA..

    This team might line up tomorrow:
    Bigi– Anita
    Obertan–Ben Arfa– Ferguson
    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.

  • 3 89Norcal // Oct 3, 2012 at 6:28 PM

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

  • 4 gonufc (up and Hatem) // Oct 3, 2012 at 6:28 PM

    Not got the options you’d like Pardew? Ermm…… Debuchy?…. Just sayin’…

  • 5 cupiddstunt // Oct 3, 2012 at 6:56 PM

    Well done go,

    the comment that brought it all to a halt ;)

  • 6 Big Pappa Cissé // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:01 PM


    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.

  • 7 bambams // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:05 PM

    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

  • 8 gonufc (up and Hatem) // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:07 PM

    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.

  • 9 bambams // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:07 PM

    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 :)

  • 10 Jail for Ashley // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:19 PM

    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 :D 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 :D (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) :D

  • 13 check the toastie // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:32 PM

    Great news Simmo’s back……………………Cant wait…he really is a special player……

  • 14 jesperfuglsang // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:33 PM

    * …characteristic of regional dialects

  • 15 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:37 PM

    Very perceptive comment Check

  • 16 cupiddstunt // Oct 3, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    Jesperfuglsang @ # 12

    Couple or three threads back I said that very thing although nowhere near as eloquently and accurately put as you have just done.

  • 17 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    If thats how you learnt to speak english then you probably speak it better than most of us!!!

  • 18 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:06 PM

    Dortmund fans rocking the etihad stadium c’mon german toons! Damn nice kit they got these lads know class ;)

  • 19 cupiddstunt // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:09 PM

    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.

  • 20 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:12 PM

    Cupid, agreed that he is not the best going forward but I think some of the stick he gets is a bit over the top.

  • 21 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:18 PM

    @cupid/ he better have a god game tomorrow tho or Check will have my life

  • 22 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:21 PM

    Good not God, hes not that amazing

  • 23 jesperfuglsang // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:25 PM

    Cupid…just saw it :D

    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…

  • 24 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:28 PM

    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!

  • 25 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:31 PM

    I’d actually go with bieng irish better than ppl thinking your from london!!

  • 26 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:31 PM

    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,

  • 27 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:33 PM

    Tads, I read somewhere today he is not back till after international break.

  • 28 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:44 PM

    Most of been more serious than thought how come our medical team always seem to get the length of are injuries so wrong??

  • 29 beefman13 // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:45 PM

    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!

  • 30 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:47 PM

    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.

  • 31 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:55 PM

    Beefman you dont have to go to another site to get that attitude. Plenty on here saying a hell of a lot worse.

  • 32 Ian Magpie // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:56 PM

    No suprise that the Dortmund fans are rocking at City! The German Bundesliga fans are 10 times better than the English Premier. Sad but true!!! How times have changed and shows just how crap football support in England has become!!!!

  • 33 ppb // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:56 PM

    guys non football – this scares me

    football – how many people have been surprised how well Elliot has done?

  • 34 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:57 PM

    Dont get me wrong harps and elliot have done well just want to see us back to full strength especially at the back we look so paniced at the back most the goals weve conceded this season have been down to plain p1ss poor defending we need that stabilty back

  • 35 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 8:59 PM

    Ian magpie in all fairness it so quiet in the citeh stadium because the fans are still trying to forget the chelsea chants and learn the citeh ones

  • 36 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:00 PM

    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.

  • 37 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:02 PM

    Thats fcuked up!

  • 38 ppb // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:03 PM

    @tads lol.

  • 39 Ian Magpie // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:04 PM

    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!!

  • 40 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:05 PM

    Dortmund 1-0!!!!
    Get in i know as an englishman im supposed to back the english teams but i hate citeh manure n chelski!!

  • 41 ppb // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:05 PM

    @tads his videos are scary clever.
    English football fans can be utterly bobbins at times

  • 42 tequilamag // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:08 PM

    @Ian all seater stadiums have a lot to do with lack of atmosphere. SJP is very quiet compared to the past.

  • 43 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:12 PM

    The probs with clubs like chelski dont really have what us toon’s would call a fanbase i work in the area quiet alot and they struggle to shift tickets for a HOME champions league group game they start flogging tickets on the radio for £20 notes a couple of days before the game the fans love telling ppl they follow chelski but dont seem to bother going to the games! Take my boss for example spent best part of last season working in putney (not far from there ground) claims he’s a life long fan and has never been to a game! Its like mate were 5 mins from the stadium! I even got tickets for a cup game of theres last season of this bloke we were working for, gave em to my boss as i had no intrest and he didnt go!!

  • 44 toonarmydownsouth // Oct 3, 2012 at 9:15 PM

    Missed ya dan

  • 50 Jail for Ashley // Oct 3, 2012 at 10:05 PM

    Has nobody sussed that jeff is billy,bob and ted yet.I can’t believe the amount of people that interact with him.

  • 51 SupaToonKid // Oct 3, 2012 at 10:16 PM

    I hope we sign Douglas in January. We are so weak at CB.

  • 52 jawballsaswallwell // Oct 3, 2012 at 10:19 PM

    I wonder if Argentina will have the gall to call Colo up again during the International break. the best thing that could happen for Newc right now is for the whole squad to go into cotton wool for a couple of weeks.

  • 53 jawballsaswallwell // Oct 3, 2012 at 10:38 PM

    The criticism that Obertan gets is pretty harsh, considering he wasn’t brought in as a regular. With his pace and athleticism he is a valuable sub to bring on against tired legs, and despite what people say he does beat his man and whip early balls into dangerous areas. Shola and Fergie are similar in that they can come on late and cause a lot of trouble, Gos and Vuckic on the other hand don’t seem up to matching the tired legs their replacing at least at the moment and Marveaux has just lost the plot for some reason.

  • 54 jawballsaswallwell // Oct 3, 2012 at 10:44 PM

    If we have a bench of Shola, Oba, Fergie, Bigi, Simmo, Perch and Willo on matchday then we have put a decent team out and I’d be confident of a result against anyone.

  • 55 ppb // Oct 3, 2012 at 10:51 PM

    @jewball totally agree. we’ve gotta strong team

    Jfa – is bob/ billy/ ted/ jeff the mackem one or am I thinking of someone else?

  • 58 cupiddstunt // Oct 3, 2012 at 11:21 PM

    Conaldo @ # 57

    Yep billy bob ted jeff they are the mackem troll you can generally spot them by the single syllable, mackems struggle with words of more than one syllable. (it’s a dead giveaway) :lol:

    The name billy is an exception I think it derives from one of them saying his name was bill, ehh
    Bill, ehh bill ehh. The truth was he could not manage the other syllables but folks just thought he was saying billy. ;)

  • 59 ppb // Oct 3, 2012 at 11:29 PM

    what’s a sil-a-bul?

  • 60 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Oct 3, 2012 at 11:29 PM

    Cupid. Duly noted haha :) mackems, can’t live with them, can’t throw them into the North Sea… Well, you’re not supposed to. ;)

  • 61 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Oct 3, 2012 at 11:30 PM

    Ppb – I know, too complicated this stuff like. :)

  • 62 bollance // Oct 3, 2012 at 11:31 PM

    As I’ve been suggesting we will play a strong 11 for home games in Europe. Win the home games and we will get through the group.

  • 63 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Oct 3, 2012 at 11:42 PM

    Bollance –
    If that team is true, we should win, although I am not underestimating Bordeaux at all. They are a very good team.

  • 64 cyprus // Oct 4, 2012 at 12:52 AM

    AP talks the talk these days. Love it:
    “Since we have entered this competition, we have entered it to win it and this is a significant game to up the levels.

    “The team has to be good enough to beat Bordeaux but I have Manchester United coming on Sunday and have to make sure the Premier League result is right too. We will not beat Bordeaux and Man United if we are not at the maximum.”

  • 65 Brutooon // Oct 4, 2012 at 12:56 AM

    Simpson been average the last 4 seasons.

    Did OK defensively (4.5/10) and poor attacking (2.5/10)

  • 66 jawballsaswallwell // Oct 4, 2012 at 1:24 AM

    @55 I think we all agree my deeply thoughtful, pithy and original posts deserve so much better than this.

    Consider my flabber, gasted!!!!!

  • 67 jayphoto // Oct 4, 2012 at 1:31 AM

    Think simmo is 7.5 defensively and a 5 attacking! Perch didn’t look comfortable at right back and simmo is our strongest right back there go we are strongest with simmo in the team

  • 68 jawballsaswallwell // Oct 4, 2012 at 1:36 AM

    That article just makes perfect sentence to me and from a Redtop, whatever next, a Cisse goal in a meaningful match.

  • 69 davis_toons // Oct 4, 2012 at 1:55 AM

    1. Is he asking for alot of bucks that the management was considering (balancing club financial wages)

    2. Or should we just get in someone with better qualities? Since we have already got some good backups.

    3. Low* Med High Quality players. (*Low- can be youth or etc)

    Simpson (Medium)

    Hypo suggested
    Newcastle Approach: 1 Low + 1 High player

    4. Simpson was a player keen on improvement.
    He is eager to learn and have improve and always improving as we all can see.

    Its good to keep him if affordable.

    Final Hypo suggested (Best Scenario)
    Newcastle Approach: 1 Medium + 1 High player

  • 70 jeff // Oct 4, 2012 at 2:00 AM

    as seen last season simpson/willo at the right side of defense is practically unbrakeable as shown by are clean sheets

    will like to see if they can continue to develop there partnership this season… good things can only come!

  • 71 davis_toons // Oct 4, 2012 at 2:02 AM

    Really depends alot on Newcastle wages structure in the case of Simpson.

  • 72 karasu // Oct 4, 2012 at 4:47 AM

    We have to field a strong side against the biggest team in our group if we wanna get through to the next stage.

    GK: Rob | DR: Anita | DC: Good, Willo | DL: Fergie | MC: Tiote, Amalfitano | AML: Marv | AMC: Ba | AMR: Gabby | FW: Shola

    SUB: Harper, Colo, Simmo, Benny, Bigi, Vuckic, Cisse

    As you can see, I’m imagining myself trying to ration our men against both Bordeaux and Man United on Sunday.

  • 73 ppb // Oct 4, 2012 at 6:22 AM

  • 92 Tsunki // Oct 4, 2012 at 8:30 AM

    Boater was on the other day. He still chips in, probably has a life though. Indian Mag self-destroyed. Brutooon occasionally attempts random shola bashing. Geoff77 last I saw he got into such a random argument he compained that his opponent didn’t have enough white space or sentence breaks in his posts. PP was on the other day. Still don’t know what happened with GT89 or LEROI. Ruddy is self-exiled. Jayphoto had a few posts last week.

    Ask Ibiza he’s on so much he won’t have missed anyone ;)

  • 93 jesperfuglsang // Oct 4, 2012 at 8:49 AM

    ppB…the list dates back to August 2011 :-)

    Roshan…nice to see you on blog blog again – haven’t seen you on blog for a long time, but Cupid told me you were still around.

    Tsunki…I’ll move Jayphoto to the frequent visit list :-)

Man U wernt full strength but had a pinch of quality to get them over the line! My team. Harps Simpson perch tav santon, Ben Arfa cabaye bigi ferguson ba and shola,

    The conclusions and implications also are worth considering. I
    am a long time time reader, season ticket and Toon army travelling fan. I only started posting recently. There are long term posters who feel it’s just tant pis if they behave like turf warriors. One individual poster who behaved like an
    intolerant old codger towards a young poster was subsequently embarrassed into acknowledging that he was 27. What we want is more of the Jesper, Ibiza all welcoming ,the yin and yang of entertaining football blogging. It’s not your fault that people are turned of coming on because their being too easily dismissed. You only need to review the quality and type of the posting just prior and during our games to see the problem. Far too many also seek to promote themselves and delight in team settbacks. Someone coming on for the first time could believe they were on a mackem site.
