When this season is over one question that should be asked and answered, is how come Newcastle players have picked up so many injuries this season, and too many in training.
Alan Pardew – two more injuries
And Alan Pardew has just said that French U21 International Marveaux is injured, and will miss the game tomorrow at West Brom and that Cheick Tiote is now very doubtful for the game.
Marveaux has suffered another groin injury, which is what he was suffering from a week ago, when he was held back from the Benfica second leg game.
And Cheick Tiote is said to be a big doubt for tomorrow with yet another a hamstring problem.
This was the report Alan Pardew just gave on injuries:
“We’ve got a couple of injuries on top of those we knew about,” “Cheick’s a big doubt, and Sylvain Marveaux will miss out with a groin injury.”
We’ve had an unusual series of injuries this season, and only last Sunday Tim Krul dislocated his shoulder and is out for the season.
And this week Ryan Taylor picked up another ACL knee injury, and now we are told Marveaux and Tiote are out for the vital game tomorrow – presumably injured in training.
Is this just bad luck?
