Good News For Newcastle On Injury Front


Well it looks like Siem de Jong is on his way back,  and the Dutch International has said he has completed his first training session since tearing a thigh muscle back in early September.

Siem de Jong – back in training

The Newcastle United midfielder broke the news on his Twitter account:

“Finally my boots back on! First session outside.”

Following his £6M signing from Ajax in the summer Siem appeared only three times this season for the Magpies before he injured his thigh in early September, so that’s almost three months he’s been out – but with any luck he could be playing before the end of the year.

The 25 year-old was due back some time in January so he may be back earlier than was planned.

That would be very good news for Newcastle United.

Couple that with the news that players like Steven Taylor and Cheick Tiote are due back this week from injury and things are looking rosy in the Newcastle United garden.

Siem de Jong had been at Ajax since 2005, and in his last five seasons  there, he played 244 times with 78 goals, and he has been given the number 10 shirt at Newcastle.

Siem is a very good player and is dangerous from set pieces, and can also score goals, so once we get him back there will be even more options for manager Alan Pardew.

Sounds good to us.

    Some interesting comments today, plenty of talk about Ings etc but my biggest concern is 2 players leaving in Jan window, Tiote is certainly going to leave and Sissoko will go depending on just how safe we are.

    We are all enjoying this run but all it keeps doing is papering over the cracks, soon we will revert back to the original formation of 451.

    I found it hilarious that Welsh was saying he didn’t want Tiote back in the team as it would push sissoko out wide, most who have been against pards have always said sissoko should be used through the middle and Tiote wouldn’t force him out wide, they play centrally but have different roles

    I should know from experience not to get into debates about signings, as they are even more unpredictable than guessing the next team sheet. Your selection, with caveats, does have a lot of changes, plus I can imagine Abeids performance will be impaired by his injury. I think the decision will be on whether to play Tiote who has been away, not trained with the squad and not played since 5th Oct(?), or Anita who last played 26th Oct(?), has trained with the squad but performed poorly.

    Braincells, vocal chords and being able to type coherent sentences would be required in order for that to happen. Unfortunately our little friend has none. It just washed up on the beach writhing around not even able to remove the excrement from its own mouth. It’s the ultimate stain on the evolutionary chain. Chin up writher you’ll grow another cell soon.

    catchy in norway

    Reminds of the story about the Spanish who returned laden in gold from South America, it didn’t make them rich just pushed up the cost of living. The enormous amount of money the Premier League generates has not greatly benefited football in its widest sense, for the country.

    catchy at 7 instead of reading negative rubbish like that, that suits your agenda try counting how many players were involved in the first goal at west brom and the goal against qpr both great team goals – long ball you must be joking.

    The sharp decline into personal defamation is the main problem on this blog. I may be guilty, but I was hopeful that my analogy was more a comment of the contribution mag92 makes to the debate rather than a physical insult.

    A contribution to the blog? Sorry mate the writher doesn’t know the meaning of the word. Someone makes a point which maybe valid or not and it replies with either insults or a total lack of thought. Ie goofy then gives no explanation whatsoever as to why. It cannot expand on points it tries to make if any and it’s sole intention in life is to troll on a nufc blog using multiple names to do so. Very sad.

    At least it’s got a raise today though.

    If Tiote comes back in that would mean Sissoko is pushed wide, or rather that has been the past experience. Like you I prefer Sissoko in the middle, and hope that the inept one keeps him there, but only time will tell.

    sliema on previous thread i would like us to sign a top forward but dont think lacazette is one .lyon who are short of cash are trying to con someone into buying him or grenier. said after the spurs game arma or perez would score more goals in france than him .the standard there is poor .have seen him score a penalty with no involement in it and a tap in where metz defence was outnumbered. has also played quite well in the six times i have watched him this season. i have never seen a supposedly top striker miss hit a ball as regularly or look so cold .wont suit geordie weather if he is tucking in his hands in extra long sleeves in france in september .we should not touch him with a barge pole.

    Has anyone seen enough of this guy? Is he a bit of a Nolan, slow but can get in scoring positions? Where exactly does he play? Do you see him as a starter displacing whom? Will he make a difference? Did we get the right brother this time? Thanks 🙂

    Points being made over the last two posts or so:

    Ings – I’d take him here definitely. Quick, sharp, looks as if he can grab a goal and he’s English. So if he’s succesful he’ll be worth a mint. Makes sense to move in if we can get him for a bargain price.

    Anita – I wouldn’t play him full stop. I loved the little guy when he first signed but i’ve concluded he’s just not cut out for the defensive role or this style of football. Regardless of Abeid’s broken toe i’d play him ahead of Anita as he’s shown FAR more in the lat 2 months than Anita has in the last 2 years.

    Steve Taylor – I wouldnt start him. He’s been OK but he’s still a hot headed clown. Carroll would be rubbing his hands at playing up against him especially considering he broke his jaw when they tangled a few years ago.
    I’d start Dummet again as we’ve not conceded since he’s played at centre back and keep haidara at left back.
    There’s no need to overthink how West Ham will play, we haven’t concded in a while and they’re on form. So why change it.
    If Collo isn’t fit i’d probably play Williamson alongside Dummet, just to try and use his arial ability.

    The guy is a blatant troll, he’s been on for about six weeks now, he’s only using one account now as he’s been banned in the past for having multiple user names, he is best off ignored as he gets bored after awhile.

    I can’t say I didn’t expect as much but attempted to see if it was possible for mag92 to have any form of positive interaction with other supporters. My initial opinion has undoubtedly been confirmed but I am still undecided whether he is just a unique individual or a troll. But I shall not be bothering to continue to try as I have been so very much vanquished [cough].

    I guess you could kind of say that but at the same time you wouldnt.

    He’s played in a number of roles at Ajax including false 9.

    He was at his best when he partnered Eriksen in the middle of the field. Very creative passer and loved to pop-up in the box (so I guess a bit like Nolan).

    He’s almost built to be a traditional number 10 behind a striker. Like Del Piero. He’s not a flair player but he’d be a great link between attack and defence.
