Good news for Newcastle fans today that Ben Arfa himself feels he is now 100% fit and is having no problem with his hamstring – and it’s important he has no doubts about his fitness.
Ben Arfa – could start tomorrow – good!
So if that is true then this lad needs to start every one of our remaining games, starting tomorrow against Liverpool, because as we all know – this lad can be match winner – and we need some match winners these days.
We are also short of players who can put the ball into the back of the net – so we’ve got to believe that Alan Pardew will start him tomorrow afternoon against the Reds:
This is what Ben Ara has said in tomorrow’s match-day program:
“My hamstring is completely fine now and I feel happy that the injury has gone and I can return to full fitness. I am 100 per cent fit.”
“I’m happy that I have come back into the team slowly and gradually. The manager and the doctor have put in place a program to ensure I return gradually rather than rush back and get further problems in the future.”
“I am happy with the work of the backroom staff and the manager, because this was my first muscular injury, and it was important that the healing ran its course.”
Tomorrow is a crucial game for Newcastle and when the match kicks of at 12:30 pm we should know the result of the Wigan vs Spurs game – and lets’ hope Tottenham show some good away form.
Another interesting game is Stoke against Norwich with Stoke level on 37 points with Newcastle and Norwich one point ahead of us.
But we also have to help ourselves and whatever the results of the earlier games are – we can do ourselves an awful lot of good tomorrow by winning the game against Liverpool – which we’ve done in the previous two seasons – by 3-1 and then by 2-0 last season.
Howay The Lads!!
