Newcastle have already suffered far too many injuries this season, and more bad news after the game last night, that center-back Steven Taylor will be out for a while with a hamstring injury.
Steven Taylor – suffered a hamstring injury yesterday
It was another poor performance yesterday from Newcastle, and it was also humbling to see a side in the Championship last season outplay and out fight a Magpies side that still had many big stars playing – but we seem to lack confidence, drive and also spirit – which is a little worrying.
Alan Pardew broke the bad news on Taylor after the game:
“We’ve got eleven senior players out and it looks like Steven Taylor could be another one out for a while with a hamstring injury”.
It’s fortunate that Fab Coloccini is now available to play on Wednesday at Stoke City, and will partner Mike Williamson at the back, and with James Perch back in the squad after recovering from his thigh injury, he is also available to play at center-back – if required.
We’ll miss Steven’s fight and drive in the side, but our lads have to wake up, buck up and start playing these games for all 3 points, and as if their lives depend on it.
That should do it, but things may get even worse before they get better on Tyneside.
What do you think?
