Oh No – Siem De Jong Injured In Training


Some bad news coming through today that Siem de Jong has suffered a leg injury in training, and he is struggling to be fit for our next game at Southampton a week on Saturday.

Siem de Jong – suffered a leg injury in training

Siem had a season last term plagued with injury while he was still at Ajax,  and he has been out injured during some of the pre-season,  and only started his first game at home to Crystal Palace last Saturday.

Siem didn’t have a particularly good game, and Alan Pardew revealed after the game he was not fully fit – so we hope we haven’t been playing Siem when injured – however slight the injury may be – that only leads to trouble down the road.

Of all the new players we have brought in this summer, Siem could be the top of the bunch in terms of goalscoring ability – so it would not be good news if Siem is not available at Southampton – a game we have to do well in after only 2 points from our first three league games.

While at Ajax over seven seasons, Siem scored 78 goals in 244 total appearances for the Dutch giants.

Fingers crossed that he will be fit enough to play on the south coast in our next game, otherwise we could be struggling to score goals again.

    Good Morning… Mr Magpie … How are we today?… (only me?)

    I don’t think he’s working on removing Goofy’s att instincts, because I think he’s already achieved that mate. Goofy looks totally lost now, and it’s been a visibly gradual decline since he first put on the shirt imo. A shame really, was well impressed with him early doors.

    On Pulis, don’t like him, however, you can’t always eat your cake! Don’t often get any to have a bite at being a toon fan so we better take it!!! Anything to be rid if P45.

    So Shane Ferguson isn’t listed in any of our squads, did the club tell him they were going walkies drive him somewhere let him out the car and drive off?
    Tbf that would probably be best for the lad!

    Poor Yanga, didn’t have a knock at all

    Catchy
    Arron
    Everybody knows what Pardew tactics are. “Right lads, I want the wingers to cover the fullbacks, midfielders to cover centre backs, attacking midfielder to drop back often to cram the midfield, and the striker to chase down fullbacks. If we all run about loads like I did as a player, we should keep a clean sheet and hopefully somehow nick one at the other end but don’t ask me how or I’ll banish you. Now don’t worry about passing as it’s more important to put in an honest performance. Anyone who doesn’t follow my orders and attacks too much or wants to play football will be blamed, failing that the youngest player on the pitch will get the blame for being naive.”
    12 ? ?

    Catchy
    Anyone not knowing the situation would read Aaron’s comment that as satire, but it’s 100% accurate. That’s the crying shame here. The man is an abject coward and has no clue how to create or score, and cannot see that spending 90 minutes defending doggedly is going to end badly more often than not. Especially when you’ve ostracised the only player capable of producing the magic your “tactics” need to give you something up the other end of the pitch.
    5 ? ?

    So are you saying you agree with what Aaron said?

    I suspected there was nowt wrong with Tiote either Tads.

    If we had a game on the 2nd of September, I would have put good money on Tiote being in the starting 11 if he hadn’t of been sold.

    “We had an agreement in place to sign Ben Arfa however, after doing some research we were uncomfortable with some of his actions so we decided to withdraw from the transfer.” -Besiktas president Orman

    “Things didn’t work out for me in England they see things in a different away, everything there is based on physicality” -Yanga-Mbiwa

    I think the club was right to get rid of both of these players. Ben Arfa has had trouble at every club he’s played. Yanga has demonstrated as a NUFC player, and has now admitted he is not physically built for the Prem.

    Still no excuse for not replacing them though!

    De Jong was completely invisible in the last game – totally anonymous. If he wasn’t fit, Pardew should hang his head in shame at what has happened.

    I read that but is that the owner responding to HBA who had indicated a week earlier that he’d rejected them? Why did they entertain the idea when Ba suggested it!!

    As for De Jong I predicted he’d have injury issues and was blasted for having that opinion, I was told he had a collapsed lung so not an injury problem or bad record….well he keeps picking niggling things up!!

    We really need to have a long hard look at our training facilities and see exactly what’s causing all of these injuries.

    …unless Tiote’s back. Then I think I know why it keeps happening.

    Desperately depressing that the only names we get linked with are Pulis and moyes.

    This after Allardyce and the current incumbent.
    What is with not seeking out a footballing and attacking coach. Is that not what we want to see.

    people were largely very happy with KK and SBR and the type of crowd pleasing football their teams played.

    yes pulis did play well with palace but have expectations really been lowered so much.

    Munster

    He’s around 24 mate, on the physicality side of things he could baulk up, Sako has also struggled at Liverpool…For a player to adapt he need more than 4 games as a CB on his preferred position. Willo was born here and he’s still shite.

    I don’t think his heading ability is an issue, look at Rio Ferdinand as an example, biggish lad but shite in the air, he had the likes of Stam, Vidic etc helping him out in the air and compensated them for what they didn’t have which was pace.

    i think it was partly. with willo, ie a big lump next to him he looked fine, with saylor and colo at cb he looked poor and at rb too. so yes poor management really to a degree. Play to players strengths and play them in their right positions, usually works.

    Looks like the bookies have got Ashley sussed. If Pardew goes, they know fine well the type of replacement we will get. I always said this was the risk. Well, i can guarantee i wont be watching any of pulis’ Thugball. Moyes isnt quite as bad. Better organised than pardew, but still a bit dull.

    Jamsha while I am sure they would appreciate a fee rom. It`s a little bit more complicated that promoting Wolves in a computer game. Still you may as well throw your hat into the ring. Plenty of other candidates I am not too keen on either

    I thing I will say is that yes I wouldn’t be happy with Pulis but I would give him a fair shot. Unlike pardew who has played the same way throughout his management career Pulis showed at palace that he’d play to the strength of the players at his disposal.

    Thuggish and hoofball at Stoke, pass and move impressively good work ethic and pleasing on the eye at palace.

    Apparently it is true about the renaming rights. He obviously doesn’t have the swingers to change the name though, or he would have done it by now.

    He’s already on the back foot there considering he was one of the investors that Charles Green brought in. Any investor who Charles Green brought to the club is treated with deep suspicion by the Rangers fans.

    He also seems to be a pal of the Easdale brothers, who Rangers fans hate.

    There would have to be a sea change of opinion for Mikey to be accepted by the Rangers fans.

    So that dream that some people might have of Mikey sailing of into the Glasgow sunset is highly unlikely, if you ask me.

    I don’t get it i really don’t. No other club in the world would hire the unholy trinity of Allardyce, Pardew and Pulis.

    What did we ever do to the footballing gods!!!

    It’s funny how nobody seemed to get injured when KK was here. Players must enjoy playing for positive attack minded coaches.

    Munster mag.

    Come on Munster no need to pile it on Pardew.
    When he says De Jong wasn’t 100% fit he would have been talking about ‘match fit’, not carrying an injury.
    Knowing how vital this player will be to our season he needs to get him match fit as soon as he can. The fact that he has now picked up an injury (in training?) is simply tough luck.

    OT not sure I subscribe to the theory that he set his team up to play football at Palace. They had an amazing number of clean sheets second half of the season. So although he can organise a defence much better than Pardew he is unlikely to entertain anyone.

    tbf pulis did seem to have a major epiphany at palace and with seemingly inferior players which gives the lie to why he played the way he did at stoke.

    if the first goal palace scored against us was a hangover from pulis’ influence then fair play.

    So if SDJ is out will Pardew give a reserve player a chance who can play the same position or shoe-horn one of his “purples” to play out of position. I fear we all know the answer already.

    I dont personally think palace looked that great under pulis. Only saw a couple of games, but they we pretty dull and toothless. I suppose for the sake of fairness i would give him a shot. I gave pardew plenty of time. The difference is i did not knoe much about pardew before he arrived, but i do know about Pulis, and i think he is a tw@ 😀
