Newcastle And Southampton Both Have Injuries – Latest Update

12:36 pm, Friday, March 28th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 14 Comments

Both Newcastle and Southampton have some injuries for the game at St. Mary’s tomorrow afternoon, and a new injury casualty for Newcastle is Dutch goalkeeper Tim Krul, who hurt his knee on Tuesday night when he collided with Mike Williamson, when Romelu Lukaka scored Everton’s second goal early in the second half.

Tim Krul – missing at least two games

Tim has some bruising on the bone, and will be out two or three games.

Both Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy will also miss the game, but Loic is to return to training tomorrow, and will be ready for the home game a week tomorrow against Manchester United, where we have the chance of doing the double over the Red Devils for the first time in many decades.

Sammy Ameobi is still out, but Davide Santon has recovered from his sore knee and recent bout of tonsillitis, and is in the squad for tomorrow’s game.

And some of Southampton top players are doubts for tomorrow’s game, and they include striker Jay Rodriguez (knee), Morgan Schneiderlin (hip muscle), Victor Wanyama (leg) and Steven Davis (groin), so it will be interesting to see which of those players miss out tomorrow.

Definitely out are full-back Nathaniel Clyne (groin), former Ipswich and Sunderland goalkeeper Kelvin Davis (hip) and Japanese center-back Maya Yoshida (knee).

If Southampton are missing some of their top players that could even things up a bit, but in order to get all 3 points we still need somebody to score for us – and who that may be we have no idea.

Here are the two squads announced for tomorrow’s game:

Southampton provisional squad: Boruc, Gazzaniga, Cropper, Chambers, Shaw, Targett, Lovren, Fonte, Hooiveld, Reed, Ward-Prowse, Cork, Schneiderlin, S Davis, Wanyama, Rodriguez, Ramirez, Do Prado, Lallana, Gallagher, Lambert.

Newcastle provisional squad: Elliot, Alnwick, Santon, Dummett, Haidara, Coloccini, Williamson, Yanga-Mbiwa, S. Taylor, Tiote, Anita, Marveaux, Sissoko, Ben Arfa, Gouffran, Gosling, Cisse, De Jong, Shola Ameobi, Armstrong.

    The whole teams carrying an injury its called a Pardew.

    Pardew has been carrying an injury to his brain for a number of years now.

    I actually think this summer is similar to last January in that Ashley knows he needs to spend and he can’t cut corners this time if he wants to stay in the PL.

    We already know that without a top striker like Remy, Ba or Cisse (in his first 13 games) and a playmaker with Cabaye’s talent we are screwed. I doubt even Ashley isnt that stupid, or is he ? .

    from previous thread, you critisize Carr for only bringing in crap players, but you also critisize Pardew for not being able to coach quality players, well Carr was here before Pardew so all the players we have were bought in by Carr, so where have these good players who Pardew can’t coach came from, unless of course we have a superb youth set-up which non of us know about. Your contradicting yourself m8 !

    I actually think this summer is similar to last January in that Ashley knows he needs to spend and he can’t cut corners this time if he wants to stay in the PL. He was scared we would go down so he bought in Sissoko, M’biwa, Gouffran & Haidara.

    are you seriously saying we lost to sunderland twice home and away, Fulham and WBA etc because they have better squads than us?

    We lose because we have a manager whose systems create very few chances and if we go a goal down we’re basically knacked.

    Don’t you think players like Cabaye, Debuchy Remy, Ba etc might have wanted to stay if the manager was half way decent and played to their strengths. Ba left cos he said the tactics stunk, as did Colo. They can’t all be wrong.

    We would all like more players but Pardew has been given good players and not made the most of it. Plain and simple. He’s alienated all the ball players and he’s done that his whole career, going back to Tevez and Mascherano.

    I don’t believe Cisse, Marv, Benny, MYM, Haidara, Anita, Santon etc have suddenly all collectively become poor players. Co-incidence, I don’t think so. Poor coaching more like.

    Sickening that Laudrup is available and we have this dinosaur slime ball still here.

    Big Pappa…There will absolutely need to be movement with transfers this summer. Even if only to deal with what we’re expecting to lose from the current squad.

    I would imagine though that the absolute minimum will be done and then reassessed come January. If we’re coping, job done, if we’re not, then expect a window similar to last January where we managed to get 5 players over that magical line…to save us from relegation.

    It’s not just about the players, it’s the playing style managers try to instil in their players.

    You know full well that Pellegrini, Wenger, Rodgers would get their teams playing football wherever they went. We also know that Pulis, Allardyce and pardew won’t.

    If the latter 3 were in charge of city or Liverpool would they score 4/5 goals a game? no chance!

    hardly think armstrong can be in the squad unless he is flying back from czech r after todays game and back after sat for next game may be wrong though .

    Rotonda

    you can’t judge by individual games, losing to bottom of the table Fulham doesn’t mean we have a worse squad than them, just like beating top of the table Chelsea doesn’t mean we have a better squad than them.

    You site certain games and put it down to poor management, so how do you explain beating Chelsea, Man U, Spurs and how do you explain how our ten 10 men were as good as Liverpool’s 11, luck ?, if so then how can you say that the poor result’s were not bad luck, it’s a totally stupid argument m8, you have to look at the overall picture, and as you say yourself Ashley is a massive problem for us.

    You claim that we should do better than what we are doing, look at the table m8 and look at the teams who are above us, with the exception of Everton all of those clubs have much bigger squads have have much more power in the transfer market than what Ashley allows us, yet for us to do better we would have to be competing with them, do you seriously feel that with what we have and with what we can get we should be challenging for the Champions league, because if we do better than what we are as you beleave we should then that is what we would be doing.

    Dislike the man by all mean’s, but lets be fair about, if you suggest that with a new more supportive owner a new manager would be required as you feel that Pardew wouldn’t be up to it, then fine, then you would be being reasonable, but as it stands now, sorry m8, but you are being totally unfair on him, out of interest, as it is under Ashley with what we have, where would you expect us to be ?

    Why do we have 3 LB’s in the squad for tomorrow? Good to see Armstrong on there again though, hopefully he can get more than 5 minutes tomorrow.
