Alan Pardew will be giving his press conference on Thursday for the Manchester City game on Saturday, and we should get some information – especially about the status on injuries.
Alan Pardew – should be interesting news conference tomorrow
Fabricio Coloccini is now back on Tyneside, and we wonder if he will be available for Saturday’s game at the Etihad, if he has fully recovered from his back injury.
If Fab can play it would allow Yanga-Mbiwa to move to right back, and maybe Vurnon Anita could come in at left back.
We expect Mathieu Debuchy and Massadio Haidara to be unavailable for Saturday’s game – but we’d like to know how long they will be out for,
And it seems Davide Santon picked up a hamstring injury while training with the Italian U21 side early last week, and he will not travel to Manchester – but how long will Davide be out for?
Newcastle start a sequence of five very important games on Saturday, all to be played in just 15 days – there are three important league games and the two ties against Benfica in the quarter finals of the Europa League.
How we fare in these upcoming games will literally define Newcastle’s season, and of course we are still not completely safe from relegation yet.
