Siem De Jong Gives Time Estimate On His Return

Newcastle are starting to get some of our injured players back,  and good news today that Ryan Taylor completed his third game on his comeback trail from two serious knee injuries, and he scored a penalty in the 3-1 Newcastle U21 win over Brighton this afternoon at Darsley Park.

Siem de Jong – still two months away

And Siem de Jong has just returned from seeing his surgeon in London, and he has given an update on his condition today on his Facebook page:

On my way back to Newcastle.” “Just saw the surgeon in London and all looks good.¨

“I can slowly start building up strength again and start walking without crutches.¨

“Still a couple of months to go, but I’m going to work hard and I’m sure I will get back stronger!”

We are missing Siem’s class and ability to score goals in the team, but if the lads can keep picking up points through the end of the year, then hopefully we will be a lot stronger in the second half of the season – we hope we will be a lot stronger in the second half of the season. 😀

Newcastle were missing Mike Williamson, Cheick Tiote, Sammy Ameobi and Manu Riviere because of injury last Saturday, in the 1-0 win at home to Leicester City, but all four could be fit to line up against Spurs on Sunday afternoon.

18 year-old Rolando Aarons should also be back for the home game against Liverpool on November 1st, and Davide Santon is probably about six weeks away from returning.

So things may be starting to look up – just a little bit at Newcastle.

    Very encouraging Ed – you think? In two weeks we could be in an even bigger heap of trouble.This piece sounds more like desperation rather like the sad folks who have been celebrating our first three points since May 2014. It looks like the NUFC PR machine are winning the hearts and minds of those people who think a 1 – 0 win over financially strapped Leicester City is a cause for celebration. I would love to hear what these folk have to say ! As for me under-achievement at NUFC continues.

    banjax when you are being rammed up the backside against your wishes, as NUFC have been for the last say 20 matches, even a small respite is worth the celebration.

    We are missing Siem’s class and ability to score goals in the team…. what goals would they be then?
