This Forgotten Young Defender Has Lost Ground This Season


Newcastle now have two of our experienced center-backs out injured and it looms like Mike Williamson and Paul Dummett will be the two that get the start in central defense against QPR tomorrow at home.

Curtis Good – in Australia colors

But when we are looking at center-backs whats the status of Australian International Curtis Good who made his debut in classic style last March but was taken off injured in the second half with a hip injury – and he’s been out injured ever since.

It’s such a pity that Curtis was injured in that game because it cost him his place in the Australian squad, and he could have been first choice for Australia in Brazil and showed what he can do.

And since Newcastle let Mapou Yanga-=Mbiwa out on loan for the season, it could also have been a time when he could have put in a claim to be in the Newcastle first team.

But none of that happened and in fact its now over eight months that he’s been out injured.

Curtis played in the first team back a year last August, when he played at Morecambe in the Capital One Cup win which we won 2-0,  and he went on loan to Dundee United earlier this year where he played five times with one goal before picking up that injury.

On Physioroom.com Curtis is out injured with no return date and he is listed as having a groin/pelvis injury.

It would be good to hear from Alan Pardew about the status of Curtis and when he is due to return – but he will have seen Paul Dummett move ahead of him in the pecking order at center-back – so Curtis in now the number five center-back at Newcastle.

Newcastle signed Curtis Good from Melbourne Heart for £400K in the summer of 2012 – and he was very highly rated.

    Robertson went off injured for under 21s the other day, maybe wasn’t a injury.

    Only seen him a handful of times but he’s a flyer, scored a belter pre season for first team.
