Shocking Injury News Reported For Newcastle United


Really terrible news tonight on the injury front as Siem de Jong could be out up to four months after he suffered a torn groin muscle in training.

siem de jong grea hands in air

Siem de Jong – torn groin muscle

We had been hoping the £6M man from Ajax would be a player who could score some goals for us, but that’s not going to be possible  – at least not in the next four months.

Siem suffered an injury hit season in his last of seven seasons at Ajax in Holland, and his injury problems have extended into this season, and he already missed some of pre-season with calf and toe problems .

There is no official news from Newcastle yet on the extent of the injury, but the Shields Gazette is reporting it’s their understanding the injury is a serious one, and that the Dutch International could be out until the new year .

Maybe we will hear something officially tomorrow from the club.

This makes our inability to sign another striker by Monday evening even more of a mistake, although it is a cruel blow for both the player, the club and the manager.

This injury will hardly help Alan Pardew in his quest to get some wins on the board, after picking up only two points from our first three games.

This is bad news for everybody connected to Newcastle if it’s true, including Siem himself of course, and it will certainly not help our chances of starting to win some games soon. 🙁

    The 25-year-old’s latest injury is a huge blow to United’s under-fire manager Alan Pardew, who loaned forward Hatem Ben Arfa to Hull City on transfer deadline day.

    Cheers Ed I wondered what had happened to HBA nobody has mentioned him for ages

    “Southampton looked as if they were having a walk in the park, their passing was so crisp.”

    An onlookers account of their last game.

    Releasing Hatem is looking more and more stupid by the second. Especially as they didn’t get anyone in, which combos the stupidity.

    Southampton are far stronger than they where last season! They’ve hugely upgraded in ability players they’ve let go with the exception of Lovren!Tadic is as good as lallana for me but gets more goals! Pelle may struggle but hes an excellent finisher! Think hel get more than Lambert!
    Sadio Mane for me might be the buy of the window! Gutted we didnt go for him! Hes destined for the top!
    In koeman they have a good manager too! Think we might get a kicking next saturday! Its not exactly our most profitable away ground either

    Massive G would Cisse play ? has he started training yet.
    He could play Sissoko and Abeid in CM with Aarons out wide Gouffran in the middle with Rivi, and Cabella on the right.
    Might even earn a few browney points from the fans as well

    As bad news goes that’s about par for the course supporting The Toon… But on the bright side it may force Mr. Dense & Lacking to play 2 real forwards at the same time instead of 1 up top and 1 behind… Lets face it the tactics so far haven’t paid off , when I say so far I mean the last 2 seasons at least…We did sign 3 other forwards apart from Siem plus Cisse MIGHT hit form….

    Geez..I just realized how stupid that statement was… I gotta stop listening to Mr Dense & Lacking’s after match excuses.. I am starting to sound like him FFS….

    Colback, tiote, sdj, cisse….Southampton are going to destroy us. I don’t see where we will get points from. I’d just go hell for leather and play 433. All 3 strikers with anita, sissoko and aarons behind them. Attack is our best option but I think we are stuffed and relegation beckons. We are in a worse state than when we went down last time.

    tequila -stop being silly – the point I was making surrounded the issue about de Jong apparently not being match fit and being played.
    I just wonder whether it was truly not “match” fit or whether it could have been this injury. We do have previous with this type of thing. A reasonable poit of view ti introduce I would wager.
    I’m sure you must belief everything that come out the club -Percy said Remy was injured – Remy said he wasn’t.

    Hi Fans, despite my endless productivity this last week, and yet another casualty of our state of the art training facilities, I have still found time to re-write this golden oldie called ‘Three Wheels on my Wagon’ made famous in the year of my birth by the New Christy Minstrels just for you, hope you absolutely lurv it as much as you lurv me!!

    PP XXX

    PS Ask your parents to hum the tune if it’s before your time.

    Three wheels on my Beemer,
    And I’m still rolling along
    The Toon Army is chasing me
    Sold HBA the other day
    But I’m singing a happy song

    I’m singing Masherly, Basherly, Casherly, Mike!
    Us Pardews do as we like
    A mile up the road there’s a hidden caf
    And I can watch the Toon Army
    Go stompin’ on by

    Two wheels on my Beemer,
    And I’m still rolling along
    That Toon Army is after me
    Personal smears, burn my ears
    But I’m singing a happy song

    I’m singing Masherly, Basherly, Casherly, Mike!
    Us Pardews do as we like
    Half a mile up the road there’s a hidden caf
    And I can watch the Toon Army
    Go stompin’ on by

    One wheel on my Beemer,
    And I’m still rolling along
    Toon Army’s still after me
    I’m to blame, for every game
    But I’m singing a happy song

    I’m singing Masherly, Basherly, Casherly, Mike!
    Us Pardews do as we like
    Right around that turn there’s a hidden caf
    And I can watch the Toon Army
    Go stompin’ on by

    No wheels on my wagon,
    So I’m not rolling along
    The Toon Army has captured me
    They look mad, things look bad
    But I’m singing a happy song…

    Jay, I Know they are not at the Dell anymore but Southampton away has always been bad for us. Le Tiss always used to score an amazing goal against us

    Nothing new there, G.

    The next Hobbit film may well merge with another Goal film to make;

    ‘The Desolation of Riviere’

    Pardew was well underway with putting it into practice with Cisse before him.

    des·o·la·tion
    /?des??l?SH?n/
    noun: desolation

    a state of complete emptiness or destruction.
    synonyms: bleakness, starkness, barrenness, sterility; More
    wildness;
    isolation, loneliness, remoteness
    anguished misery or loneliness.

    Mr Tuff I like a conspiracy theory as mush as the next man. He was supposed to be out with a foot injury in pre season then a calf injury for the first game. This is if rumours are correct a 4 month lay off with a groin strain. I don`t see anything more sinister than the usual bad luck with injuries. Or bad training methods if that makes you happier.

    I wonder who’s idea it was to build the team around an injury prone player with no premier league experience.

    Maybe that wasn’t even the plan. I just got that impression from some of Pardews muttering’s..

    Well i suppose you could say thats what happens when the owner gambles by putting all his eggs in one basket, so to speak. Probably a good time for Vukic to step forward into thus role.

    Belfast in his last 4 seasons he played 52 39 47 and 28 games, in the last season he had a collapsed lung which is unusual but not a typical football injury.. Bit harsh to say he is injury prone.

    Mister Tuff I said if it made you happy… I have no idea how good or bad the training sessions are. Maybe they are over worked. It is a possibility. Maybe the grass is too long or maybe the stars were in the wrong alignment. Maybe it is none of those things and he just tore his groin as thousands of other footballers have done in the past.

    On the up side this means Cabella will likely be played as a number 10… where imo he is far more effective than out wide.

    Janmaat – Colo – Willo – Haidara
    ———- Tiote ——- Colback
    Sissoko — Cabella — Aarons
    —————– Riviere

    Ashley is the guy behind the transfer policy isn’t he. He is the one constant in all of this. It’s not coming from Charnley, nor a legacy of Llambias, nor from Pardew or Carr. These guys have a remit, that admittedly they must have bought into or at least accept, but a remit that is essentially the will of the owner. HBA, Mbiwa and DeJong were bought as heavy hitters, two have been shipped out without replacement and the other, injury prone, has no natural understudy in the squad an plays in its most pivotal position. That’s the worst of Ashley right there.

    He got a small knock in pre season tequila and took weeks to re-cover. Plays one game that passes him by, and then tears a groin a few days later.
    After playing only 16 games last season. I would call that injury prone.

    Either that or he’s walking under the same ladder as Percy.

    NUbilly if you had supported Newcastle in the late 70s and 80s you would know what reeking at the core and bad football and management was really like.If you can even consider stopping supporting Newcastle as an option I feel sorry for you. Managers owners players come and go. If you are only interested in Newcastle as the “entertainers” that seems pretty glory hunter to me.

    Only upside is that we wont play a half fit player and Cabella may get a shot at playing in the hole.

    Riviere
    Aarons – Cabella – Sissoko
    Colback – Anita

    Tequilamag- Yes I know, it seems harsh, and I wont stop supporting them. It just really suck whats going on, and the Newcastle I grew up supporting is hidden by the MA and AP’s puppet show.
    I just feel depressed at the state of our sleeping giant and want AMBITION again. Thats all.
