Well, would you believe it – but Mehdi Abeid has been injured while training with the Algerian squad.

Mehdi Abeid – now on crutches

This was the very first senior call-up for the 22-year-old, for the African Cup of nations qualifiers, but he has suffered some toe injury in his right foot.

We don’t know how serious the injury is – but he left the stadium on crutches – so we hope that’s just a precaution.

But it’s always annoying when we allow our players to go out on International duty and they came back crocked – what do some of these teams do in training?

If he is out for out for any length of time, it will be bad news for Newcastle and bad news for Mehdi himself who has been a star of the side in the last three games we have played – all wins.

We assume the 22 year-old midfielder will now be returning to Newcastle to have treatment, and we’ll have to wait for the prognosis on the injury.

We hope it’s not too serious.

Comments welcome.

Update – Mehdi has suffered a broken toe and will be out at least two weeks – according to Mehdi himself on his Facebook account – if that’s true that’s not too bad.

    It’s the story of the season so far, a player comes in has 2 or 3 good games then gets injured and is out for weeks or in some cases months. Cursed or what.

    Push sissoko back alongside colback, with cabella in front of them.

    Shame though, players stepping up and impressing this season and the football is improving then they pick up injuries.

    Think Raylor is ahead of Anita now too plus he offers quality from set pieces.

    On Grenier:

    Ed, Ed,
    You know why I worry when you mention this player? That you inadvertently may slip up and mention the word ‘Cabaye’, hence losing our little bet to not write it for a whole month… You have to let go, man. He’s gone and we want better…

    So, did you slip up in the above article?

    Thats typical of our luck.Obertan was playing well and gets crocked for months, now Abeid gets his chance iand is crocked.Lets hope its only a minor thing cos he,s been central to our form of late.

    Discounting Sods law, are players more injury-prone now than they were years ago?

    Foot injuries seemed less prevalent but injuries are more likely now that players are wearing slipper-like boots with neither ankle support and heel and toe protection.
