Newcastle Suffer Another Injury Blow


Cheick Tiote will now miss the game at Manchester City on Saturday, as he has picked up an injury in training this week, and it seems we will have a number of players missing against the reigning Premier League Champions on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

Cheick Tiote – will miss the game on saturday through injury

And Davide Santon will not travel with the side, after picking up a hamstring strain while with the Italian U21 side last Saturday.

And our two full backs who started the Wigan game will also be absent – Mathieu Debuchy is still suffering from a hamstring strain and Massadio Haidara will not play,  after suffering severe bruising of the knee and thigh, from that ridiculous challenge from Callum  McManaman.

And McManaman has not received a censure or warning from anybody – so we have to assume it was a fair tackle – as his boot went straight into the Frenchman’s knee. 🙁

The way this had been handled by the English FA has been embarrassing, to say the least.

And Wigan continue to embarrass themselves,  as Wigan manager Roberto Martinez and Chairman David Whelan had the cheek to defend their player and said it was a fair tackle – why?

This is what Alan Pardew said this afternoon, about Massadio Haidara’s status, and the comments made by the Wigan manager and Chairman:

“I was surprised by comments from their manager and chairman, that they thought it was a fair challenge. I think everybody could see that it wasn’t. “He won’t play this weekend, but fingers crossed he will play against Benfica.”

It will be great if Massadio can start next Thursday in Benfica – and hopefully we’ll have a few more players back from injury.

Wigan have hardly come out of this looking anything but trying to protect their own interests, and their player from a suspension – but they have shown absolutely no class whatsoever in the process.

Comments welcome.

    Read an interview earlier where Martinez was asked if there had been an apology from Wigan/McManaman to Haidara -he waffled on a bit -not answering the question directly but said that there had always been contact between the medical departments of both clubs -trying to give the impression there had been contact. We now hear from Percy that as far as he is aware there has been no apology. I now hope Wigan finally go down -along with QPR -then not fussed between Reading or Villa. Need Sunderland to stay up so we can whop them and retain the bragging rights.

    I agree m8, can’t have 5under1and going down… thats a minimum guarantee of 4 pts (10% of the safety mark) every season, although Villa all the way after their antics when they sent us down… CHEER-I-O, CHEER-I-O, CHEER-I-O!!! haha

    @Mr.Tuff
    I think they will try to bolster our attack this summer with at least one player. Maybe two, if we get right price and can offload Obertan and Gosling for example. If Colo leaves we will likely go for another CB. Otherwise, it will only be youngsters.

    PEA or Belhanda are on our list from France for sure – If PSG buy one of them for example – Menez or Gamerio might be available instead. We will see how it develops and how good player we can afford.

    It’s a little interesting that Llambias (I don’t believe I have called him his real name) who stated as much this time last year that no money would be spent in the summer has said that we are anticipating spending… I have high hopes whether we shift Oba and Gos on or not, defo need attacking reinforcements to step it up a gear and at least 1 more central defender with some versatility

    Sazzer @9 agree with your post – unfortunately we are short in the attacking options and “ready made” strikers will without doubt cost us more. Trouble -potentially with Aubameyang is that he is on fire at the moment -apart from last weekends draw with PSG he has scored in every game since January – if his form continues -the price might go up.
    Ibrahimovic is leading the French league 1 scorers with PEA second.
    Younes Belhanda is a good player as well – I would prefer PEA.
    Good players are not getting games at PSG so hopefully this may make potential signings go where they know they will play.

    Wigan QPR and Villa for me, the Ideal group to fall out of the bottom of the prem , then championship, then……..well you get my drift.
    Prefer the Derbies every season tbf even though I cant sleep the night before them, I would deffo miss the banter if they went down,
    Tiote missing is a shame but Perchinio can cover, Simmo and Anita can cover fullbacks as long as we play gutti in front of Anita and Socks in front of Simmo, Cabaye Gouffy and Cisse.
    Not sure if Timmy will be available but Rob Elliott can cover adequately..
    Citeh can blow hot and cold, hopefully we can catch them cold if Manure stuff the Mackems and they go 16pts clear its game over for Citeh and they may (hopefully) be feeling sorry for themselves.
    It is a great pity Kompany is back though as he is a mean defender.

    A big blow to be without Debuchy, Santon and Haidara. That’s 3 top class full-backs. Looks to me that Anita will play LB, and Perch will sit in front of the back four. Thank goodness we were able to invest in 5 new players in Jan. I’m now starting to feel a bit embarrassed about the “cockney mafia out” malarkey. Ashley has shown he can turn unsuccessful businesses around – and we were an unsuccessful business.

    Wigan>

    If those 3 went down I’d be over the moon mate!

    Wigan – Coz they should stick to Rugby (and apparently Kung-fu if theat little **** McManaman is anything to go by)
    QPR – Coz it would be hilarious if droopy chops ‘Arry spent all that money and still got relegated !
    Villa – Coz they’re scum. Simple as that. I will celebrate their relegation with far more enthusiasm then they mocked ours!

    PLEASE GOD OF ALL THINGS FOOTY, MAKE IT HAPPEN !!!

    Anita – Cabaye
    Sissoko

    Diaby is a poor man’s Williamson?

    Except that he plays in CM, and that he’s a fantastic player.
