Well things are going from bad to worse at Newcastle, with the news just announced that Danny Simpson broke a toe during the first half of the Arsenal game, and will now be out for up to four weeks.
Danny Simpson – out four weeks with broken toe
It’s bad news for Newcastle, and even more reason why we need to bring Mathieu Debuchy in as soon as possible from Lille, but we have no idea who will play right back on Wednesday night against Everton.
Maybe Davide Santon could switch to right back and Shane Ferguson come in at left back, or James Tavernier comes in as a direct replacement for Danny, and of course Vurnon Anita can also play at right back, but we really need his skill in the center of the park.
This is what a frustrated And Pardew said today:
“Maybe he should have came off at half-time.” “But he will be out for three or four weeks.”
Newcastle have been completely decimated this season by the loss of so many players with injuries, and it seems to be continuing – when will it end?
And as a side note this will complicate Newcastle’s chances of moving Danny Simpson out in January for a fee, before his contract runs out at the end of June, and he becomes a free agent and can leave for nothing.
We need a win against Everton on Wednesday night despite all this turmoil, and a very crowded treatment room.
