Pardew Gives Injury Update – Tiote Almost Ready

Ryan Taylor is training at the moment and its non competitive according to Pardew, and that probably means it’s non contact right now, but Ryan is expected to resume full training in about three weeks time – and Newcastle are right to be very careful with Ryan’s comeback –  after what happened a year last April, when he was coming back from his first ACL knee injury and the knee went for a second time. 🙁

Ryan Taylor – after scoring wonder goal at Sunderland
That was almost exactly three years ago

That was absolutely tragic for the former Wigan player, but we are hoping it will not be too long before we see Ryan back playing for Newcastle again – and certainly the Liverpool lad has shown tremendous  courage and fortitude over the last two years.

Alan Pardew gave this mini-injury update today:

“Ryan is training but it’s non competitive if that makes sense.”“So he’s still three weeks from full training.” 

“Siem has trained all week, he’s worked hard and will be in the squad.¨ “Cheicky has just started to run.¨ “We think he’s all clear now.¨ “So that’s good news.”

There was some bad news about Davide Santon,  that he will still be out for three more months with his injured knee, and we’re not sure of the status of Curtis Good – as the promising young Australian is recovering from a hip operation he had in the summer.

And it seems Cheick Tiote should be fit for our next PL game at home to Crystal Palace a week tomorrow – always assuming he’s still at Newcastle by then.

And we think there is very decent chance that Newcastle can get one or two more players through the door in this transfer window,  but they may come in over the final two days of the window.

And Alan made a good point that Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley delivered the players early, so they all had some pre-season games, and are quite well set in the team:

“One of the points I have made to Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley, it’s important for new players to come in quickly.” “We did that and I’m pleased with that.”

It should not take too long now for them to acclimatize to things, and a full six players made their competitive debuts for Newcastle last Sunday, and the side played well too – especially in the second half when we had Manchester City almost on the ropes.

Almost is the proper word – but from a City perspective the defense did well to hang on as they did, although we missed our chances.

Maybe we can get that first league win tomorrow at Villa Park in the early kick-off game at 12:45?

And then we are at Gillingham in the League Cup (Capital One Cup) on Tuesday night.

Comments welcome.

    With the amount of goals our Cb’s conceded last year there are plenty players good enough for NUFC .

    Given the Celtic view that we’re not a big club, it might just be a good time for Mike Ashley to have some fun – by buying a few shares in Celtic.

    I didn’t say he did.
    Pardew said he only wants player’s good enough to wear our shirt, you can hardly call Saylor for example a quality premiership player.

    Very quiet tonight! Anyway any predictions for the score tomorrow. I think we’ll get a 2 – 0 lead then Pardew will go all defensive they’ll pull a goal back and we’ll hang on for a 2 – 1 win 😉

    A score draw for me 1-1

    We’ll set up same as Sunday with DeJong for Gouffran possibly.
    I’d like to see M’biwa for Collo as Villa have pace to burn up front and on the wings.

    Theyll be confident at home and will be very dangerous to us on the counter.

    Ronny dahlia or whatever his name his. Thats rich seen as how hes not big enough to manage a team in a one club leage, not division LEAGUE a clown who should keep his trap shut.

    Does anyone else think we should be using Riviere in a Right Attacking midfield position like Lyon did with lacazette thus opening up space up top for Ferreyra who will develop into an incredible striker?

    I think we’ll loose 2-0 tomorrow, everyone is underestimating villa.
    But let’s hope I’m wrong.

    I think mbiwa’s still injured but even if he wasn’t parsnip would never drop colo, no matter what’s happened be it injuries, swanning off to Argentina or loss of form he waltzes straight back into the team no questions asked because he’s the captain….get some balls parsnip..oh wait Ashley’s got em 😉

    Not sure of the score tomorrow tbh as villa have lots of pace upfront and we have none at the back, if they click were fcuked and with Joe Cole making his debut it’s odds on the shitster will score

    On the other side of the coin we have pace too but we need to click in the attacking third aswell against their undoubtedly slow backline

    I think it’s gonna boil down to which defence copes the better out of the two teams and dominates the midfield area

    I just hope we don’t sit back and play the cagey containment football, this is ok well it’s not really but in the first 5-10 minutes it’s understandable after that it’s getting silly but I’d still prefer us to attack from the off and see what happens. Even if we go a goal up we need to keep going for em and not sit on the lead as our defence just isn’t up to it

    Tight, scrappy affair with few goals I’m going for 0-1 SDJ but hoping for 0-3
