Newcastle Have Cabaye And Krul Injured


It was a great win for Newcastle tonight,  but there are now worries about two of our best players – Tim Krul and Yohan Cabaye.

FC Metalist Kharkiv v Newcastle United FC - UEFA Europa League

Shola Ameobi – in action tonight – Shola score winner form penalty

Yohan Cabaye was replaced by Gael Bigirimana after 87 minutes and the French International seems to have sustained a knee injury, but just how bad that is we don’t know at the moment.

And Tim Krul was fouled in the last few minutes of the game and had to have treatment – and the reports coming out of Kharkiv say that he’s been spotted on crutches – so that doesn’t sound too good – although we don’t know how true that report is.

But we have to hope  these two players are not too badly injured, but of course there’s little room for any recovery from injuries, since we kick off in less than 72 hours against Southampton on Sunday – in what is a crucial league game for us.

We hope there will be some news on the injuries before the night is out.

    Cabaye injury might just be some playacting tactic on the pitch (87mins). I’m hoping. He would be a big miss.
    Krul may just be precautionary. I’m being optimistic.

    Tiote missed the game due to illness but I think he will start on Sunday if fit.
    Good to see Anita play well.

    Btw – remember Brighton away…
    Sammy Ameobi
    Shane Ferguson
    Abeid
    Williamson
    Obertan

    Not even near the starting XI.

    How times change?

    M’biwa, Salylor and Debuchy have made a huge difference to our defense.

    Tim Krul leaves the stadium on crutches and with his left leg in a protective cast. #Nufc

    We just can’t catch a break can we? Why can’t we just have a good win without something bad happening too?

    If Krul and Cabaye are injured it will put preasure on the rest of the squad, perhaps they will stepp it up a notch

    I forgot to mention that the clean sheets will do the team the world of good.
    Haven’t had too many this year.
    Wonder if anyone can tell the thread when was the last time we had back to back clean sheets?

    Kinda hope cesspool and chelsea get through tonight. As much as i hate them i’d be great if a quarter of the teams left were english.

    Townsends commentery is horrific though. Swear he follows every comment with yep 😉

    Townsend not as bad a waddle – can’t stand that guy commentating. He was surprisingly positive about the toon tonight, maybe cause we got a pelanty.

    Spuggy… I was suprised as well by that. Considering he used to play for us he always seems to put us down. Although fair play i though he was spot on about most things tonight.

    Best team went through for sure, but a few points, we didnt create much, got a penalty through nothing, we lack serious pace with the team Parsnip put out, Simpson shouldnt be playing and Cisse right wing is simply a disgrace.

    Yet again, seeing a game out for Pardew is dropping deep, and pretty much throwing bodies at shots and dangerous set pieces, when will he realise possession is key in seeing games out, plus a decent outlet, for example somebody who can chase balls into corners rather than a centre forward who struggles to break into a jog.

    Bad news with the Bindippers, they look like they are going to produce the goods. Shite.

    when seeing a game out obertan is always a good sub to make, bung him on the half way line hoof it long tell him to run it into the corner, better than inviting pressure back on to ourselves

    You are the personification of neggar.

    Cabaye got a knock, and Mentalists threw everything forward and went for broke.

    You, my friend suffer from a serious case confirmation bias. Google it.

    Check, put your hatred away for one day and just enjoy the result, Simmo had a good game, Cisse was not on the wing and Shola even without the penalty played really well tonight. Mentalist Carkeys could not handle him at all.
