Newcastle Star Could Be Out For The Season


One thing Newcastle must address after the season closes, is why we have picked up so many injuries this season, and only last week two of our new French players – Massadio Haidara and Moussa Sissoko picked up injuries in training.

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Newcastle United v Stoke City - St James' Park

Moussa Sissoko – likely out for the season

And it looks as though Moussa’s knee injury could end his season, and he’s a big doubt for Sunday’s game at QPR, and will probably not make the game at home to Arsenal on May 19th, in our last game of what has been a disastrous season.

Moussa and Massadio didn’t even travel to London for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at West Ham, and it also looks like Massadio’s hamstring injury will keep the 20 year-old out for the last two games, although Davide Santon has a chance to be back from his hamstring strain.

And Shola Ameobi, who was making his first appearance for a long time in the second half on Saturday, apparently injured his knee with his first kick of the ball, and is also doubtful for Sunday.

We know Shola is injury prone – but that’s ridiculous. 🙁

Ben Arfa is also not 100% with his hamstring injury, although he will likely start at Loftus Road, where we need a win to save our season.

It’s an SOS that we hope our players will take on Sunday, but we are still missing some of our top players, and a win is by no means a certainty, against the bottom of the league side, who are already relegated.

    Some of you may have missed my this post earlier. So for those who did.

    My Sources from Inside of SJP tell me that Pardew will go for a draw against QPR and will hope for a Wigan defeat against Arsenal.

    Some one faxed me his team line up too. So this is it.

    ———————————Elliot——————–
    Taylor ———–Colo————-Williamson——Yanga
    —————-Tiote ———-Perch ———-Anita
    ——–Bigirimana———–Jonas ————–sissoko

    You heard it here first.

    We only need a Draw at Loftus road. Arsenal is probably beating Wigan, and 4 points with only one game left is enough.

    After near three weeks of media saturation following Thatcher’s demise, can we expect similar cover of Fergie,’s retirement?

    Imagine if we had a manager like Fergie.
    Could we really cope with 26 years of overall success, 49 trophies and a constant stream of quality players rushing to be in our team.
    Well, the quality players… we have some of them
    Trophies……… errr well maybe a few more than we have now
    Oh and the manager…………well thats that dream fkd
    AP has had long enough.
    He tried
    he cant do it
    Get rid and get a new face in with some attacking coaching qualities
    DO IT NOW !!!
    Oh and 3-1 to us on Sunday

    pardew –the only manager who can suffocate a talented bunch of players and expect them to perform to their potential ,to win games wth a defensive system , then accept responsibility in the face of defeat.- no wonder his cv looks like a candidate for – the planets biggest loser award. If anyone took a cv like that to an interview for a 1.2M salary per year job , WHO in their right mind would trust him with his company and expect them to flourish , when his cv states in black and white – he was either sacked by his bosses or he put them into liquidation ( relegated) in all his posts since 2000.
    hahahahaha you couldnt make it up could you ?
    So ashley didnt check the “debt” situation before he bought the club? he didnt check pardews cv either. 2 of the biggest mistakes in his life . hahaha

    Jose doesn’t stay many years in a job, maybe that would change if he went to Man Utd. Maybe not. Moyes I would have thought. Who knows…

    If Pardew went there he’d be saying the players don’t have enough experience or he might fancy RVP on the wing with Carrick as a wing back. He’d fill the team up with players who have no track record of scoring or assisting goals and play players with poor form because the work ‘ard but in effect, offer very little.

    Then the fans would question why he has the team defending 1 nil leads yet still losing, thus giving ANOTHER club of his some of the worst recorded results ever.

    Of course it would be down to the fact that they play in Europe and are tired from playing all those extra games.

    When you look at the quality of the players at his disposal there has to be questions asked about Pardews efforts this season but the hysterical criticism seen on this site borders on the ridiculous. Pardew is a defensive coach and his style of play may not suit the Keeganites around these parts but Mourinho is a defensive coach (rumour has it he used to get angry with his players if they went 3-0 up as they were not following instructions to sit back and protect the 2-0 lead) and Mr Benitez who many are clamouring for as a replacement is also defensive. Who knows if Pardew actual manages to establish a solid stable defensive unit, something not seen for decades at Newcastle, the technical and flair players might just have a platform to go and express themselves. David Moyes is the likely successor at Man Utd and he flirted with relegation on more than one occasion as he sought to build up a competitive squad at Everton. (Oh and guess what – he is a defensive coach too!)

    @ Stuart no9

    Yes they are but if a team does its defensive duties well and you have quality throughout the team they will dismantle teams from time to time but not in the same manner as say a Keegan or Rednapp style team. Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea because he wouldn’t change his style of play to suit the owner and many people were bemused at the appointment of Benitez for the very same reason.

    Perhaps it haas something to do with our fitness coaches Hulse and Elliott being ‘moved on’

    http://www.nufcblog.com/2009/09/10/whatever-happened-to-newcastles-fitness-coaches/

    and promoting tweddle from youth academy to do the fitness role on a ‘temporary basis’ when Houghton was manager, Tweddle is still doing it. That means he got rid of two full time fitness staff and got the youth academy coach to do it who probably has less experience in the fitness game?
