Pardew Talks About Serious Injuries To Top Stars

Alan Pardew talked a lot about the injuries at Newcastle in his press conference yesterday, and the surprise was that Rolando Aarons is injured and out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury, but Jack Colback and Cheick Tiote will be fit for the game tomorrow at Southampton.

Alan Pardew – Newcastle manager

Alan also talked about the injury to Siem de Jong – which was a bit of a hammer blow to Newcastle, when he was injured in training early last week:

“It’s difficult to assess really,” “I think it’s whether he has an operation on the injury, which we’ll probably determine this week, but I would suggest that he certainly won’t be back for about three months.” “After that, it could be any time really.”

The good news is that Papiss Cisse should be back in full training within a week or two, and the Newcastle manager had this to say about the Senegal striker yesterday:

“He has a deficiency in his muscle on that side where he’s had the operation. That’s just a process of building it up,” “He is working hard to get training-fit really, and then we need to take it from there, but I don’t think he’s too far away.¨  ¨I would suggest that he’d be training with us in the next couple of week.”

Papiss broke his patella towards the end of last season, and he has been out ever since, but he could become an important player for Newcastle this season, if only he can reproduce the form he showed when he first arrived at Newcastle in February of 2012.

Papiss scored 13 goals in 14 games in his first half season at the club,  but since then his goal scoring has fallen off fairly dramatically, and in the last couple of seasons he’s scored 17 goals in 73 appearances.

Its time for Papiss to step up to the plate again for Newcastle.

    give the sucker a break camp ? their isn’t one

    you also say you know he is nothing other than an average manager

    I have no clue how you come to that conclusion , everything he has done at our club tells you he is worse than average, he is at the bottom of all the managers we have had for a full season at our club in the prem

    he has broken nearly every record that you don’t want to break in that time

    how is he average again?

    or are you that sucker that gets taken in by the sucker?

    Can you imagine a couple of young men in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia living in some bombed out wreck of a building having a chat about football.
    One of the pair is Ethiotoon and the other is his mate Amir during the conversation Amir makes a comment fully agreeing with something Ethiotoon has said. Ethiotoon praises Amir for his compliment/support using the phrase “NICE ONE”.
    Don’t think so some how!.

    Pardew is average. Trouble is, he is at what SHOULD be a better than average club, and the pressure has him doing a less than average job (ok thats a bit complicated). Anyway, the ‘sucker’ has had enough even breaks, now.

    Jog on tool, we wrote your pre match conference a week ago.

    Complain about someone who hasn’t featured someone who you couldn’t tell had and a young lad who’s saved your blushes with 20min spells.

    New excuse please as these aren’t acceptable!
