Full Newcastle Injury Update – Some Concern

It is looking like Tim Krul, Yoan Gouffran and Papiss Cisse, who all missed the game on Wednesday night in London because of a virus, will be fit enough to play at Stoke City on Monday night.

And the reason Daryl Janmaat missed the second half at Palace and was replaced by Massadio Haidara, was that he suffered a muscle strain in the first half, and it looks like he may be doubtful for the game at Stoke.

If Daryl Janmaat cannot make it, we could see Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara as the two full backs, although Vurnon Anita has experience playing at full back while he was at Ajax.

And midfielder Mehdi Abeid, who had another solid game in Newcastle’s central midfield, is suspended for this game, after being sent off in extra time at Selhurst Park.

Davide Santon (knee) will not return to training until the end of November,  so that’s another long two months out for the Newcastle left back, and Siem de Jong (thigh) is probably out until the new year.

Rolando Aarons has a hamstring strain, and the initial diagnosis was that he would be out for about four weeks – so it will still be another two weeks before we see Rolando back in action, so it may be the best we can hope for is the game after the two week International break.

That’s a home game against Leicester City on September 18th.

And finally Ryan Taylor is being nursed back to full fitness, but Newcastle will be taking no chances with the 30 year-old Liverpudlian, after he’s been out injured for over two years with two serious ACL knee injuries.

With any luck we should get an injury update from Alan Pardew today in his press conference for the Stoke game, and we hope there no surprises in store.

    Isn’t the king doing his pre-match presser right about now? I’m sure someone said it started at 8am.

    I see we are not the only one who had poor start.
    even man utd,Liverpool,spurs still struggling with world class players.still long way to go,there is no need for us to get panicked.
    I think today Arsenal will hammer spurs,where as,Liverpool and Everton will share a point each IMO.
    Britannia is not an easy place to get a result ,so in my personal opinion, a draw will be a good result, If
    we win,that will be a huge step to move forward!!

    When a team is performing poorly, I often wonder if some of the “injuries” are just to avoid playing.

    @5 :

    I see this so called ” ïnjury crisis”? as a chance for the younger players to come through and build experience up in the first Team Squad !

    We are bottom of the League, but in our last two games we have played well, and there are a few of the younger players starting to show some signs of real promise !

    We needed at least one more signing in the last window before it shut ? Pardew just has,nt got the balls to experiment with the Kids in the Team.
    We are bottom anyway, so why not throw caution to the wind and give one or two of the kids their full debuts on Monday evening?

    If we lose, then he may get sacked, and a lot will be happy on here? I still have to see who the people want to see replacing him in the job? No-one has come up with a suitable candidate for the job?
    Put Elliot in goal, play Riviere up front with Cisse, in 442 formation and play some decent attacking Footy, we could win this Monday , if the tactics and the Team are right on the night!
