Newcastle Midfielder’s Injury Worse Than First Thought


Some disappointing news tonight,  that Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback has pulled out of the England squad and will return to Newcastle to have treatment on his injured calf, and we have to hope that Jack, one of the best players so far this season for the Magpies, will be fit to play at Southampton a week on Saturday, which is turning out to be an important game for the team.

Jack Colback – sent back to Newcastle with injured calf

Jack’s injury is to his calf was picked up on the first day of England training, when he was kicked on the back of the calf, and England manager Roy Hodgson said this about Jack:

“Jack Colback has had to leave us. He took a very nasty kick on the back of the calf.” “We were hoping he would train with us but he can’t do that so it’s better to send him back to Newcastle.”

It’s disappointing for Jack to sustain the injury at the worst possible time, and if that hadn’t happened he would have probably played as a substitute in England’s 1-0 win against Norway, but England had to rely on a second half penalty from new captain Wayne Rooney to get the win.

Former Newcastle goalkeeper Fraser Forster, who is now at Southampton, has also withdrawn from the England squad today, due to injury.

England will now play in Switzerland on Monday night,  in the first qualifying group game of the Euro 2016 Championships.

    @JT: In all fairness, nobody really left the midfield that we needed. Would have liked to have seen Gosling have a proper bite of the cherry but I don’t think Pardew cared much for him.

    and for people saying dyche and mcclaren not a chance theres compo to pay plus they’ll want there own backroom staff

    remember pardew came in alone and then only after quite a few months got to choose a number 2 which was someone else who was cheap

    and now he’s got people who were “promoted from within” including his new chairman who was the secretary!!!

    not a chance of any up and coming managers let alone top euro ones lol

    Will the FA be compensating the club for injuring another of our players?

    so what Iv’e read about Christophe Galtier it seems that he’s well fitted for Newcastle

    attacking style coach, solid in defence, free flowing play AND like to develop young players ( Zouma ) AND is an superb man manager ( PEA )

    sounds to me that he would relish our club and he has also stated it would be a dream come true to manage a club in the premier league.

    SIGN HIM UP ASH

    Saint-Etienne also seem to be on a tight budget compare to other French clubs and he’s done really well getting them into Europe with his star players being sold.

    Pardew is driving me mental. At first and for a long time afterwards I thought it was fun laughing at his cluelessness and stupid, delusional comments. I’ve had enough now.

    @B&W

    Good find on the article. Interesting read!

    Whats does everyone think the realistic chance of us getting someone like Galtier to replace Pardew?
    I mean it seriously.. dont bother saying stuff like “no chance under ashley” or “why would anyone want to work as his puppet”
    Not clever or funny!

    We are all frustrated but lets try and have a proper discussion about it.

    He’s on his last lap Blackley it would seem…

    I’m sure there’s a few Sunday league teams out there who’ve implemented his set pieces routine. So he can be proud of that when he looks back on his time.

    Goodnight

    So Pardew reckons we’re on for Europe; he reckons he’s happy with his new look squad; he gets in Chucky but doesn’t play him; he says he’s confident the new boys will get goals; he says we’re usually good defensively; he says we’re in the market for a new striker and CB; he says we need bodies out to get bodies in; he sells two popular players; he gets in no replacements; he knows we’ve shipped in loads of goals since xmas; he knows he’s only managed to get a handful of wins in 2014. Complacent. Mental. The bloke is deluded. I’m telling you now, he’s lost the plot. He’s another crackpot like Joe Kinnear. You’ll see. It will all come out.

    Wrong goalie. That’s Ben Foster sent back to West Brom, Ed, not Fraser to Saints. The Wall could still play against the Swiss.
