Newcastle Winger Injured At Burnley

Why are Newcastle picking up so many injuries this season?

All clubs suffer injuries during the season, we know that, but we have been top of the injury league in the Premier League almost all season – is it really just back luck?

And it looks we picked up yet another injury last night, as the impressive Sammy Ameobi had to limp off the field,  and it’s more bad news for Newcastle.

Sammy had to leave the pitch after 75 minutes and was replaced by Manu Riviere, after putting in a very good second half performance, and this is what Alan Pardew said immediately after the game:

“We lost Sammy, by the looks of it, to an injury, so that’s bad news,”

Sammy has always been prone to injury at Newcastle, so we will just have to wait to see what the injury is, and then what the prognosis is from the Newcastle medics.

But the good news is that if Rolando Aarons is fit to play on Saturday against Chelsea, he could come straight into the side on the left wing in place of Sammy.

Our game after Chelsea is at Arsenal a week on Saturday, so Sammy has a little time to recover and not miss too many games.

We’ll just have to hope he’s not out too long and can play during the hectic holiday schedule, which could define Newcastle’s season.

    Would like to see abeid and Colback holding with Sissoko ahead but think Tiote is a certainty.

    Colo and Saylor CB, Dummett will go LB if both CBs are fit.

    Shame with Sissoko playing central that Cabella will need to be out wide to get a game as he plays best as no10 but still have him streets ahead of Gouffran.

    To be honest, last night showed how big a player Colback is for us. He’s one of those players who just gets on with spoiling it for the other team. Nothing showy or eye catching unless you watch him harrass the hell out of the oppo midfield.
    He allows Sissoko to go bursting into the other half. Tiote looked like he was trying to do everyone’s job in the second half but sadly he has very little end product and his passes often end up doing a Ray Wilkins -backwards or sideways at best.
    Abeid i thought was excellent last night, shame he won’t get into the team on Saturday.

    JDubai not if its setup up like this

    Janmaat – Dummett – Colo – Haidara
    Gouffran – Sissoko – Cabella – Colback

    No way Aarons will start. He’ll play off the bench. Colback is a left sided player and wide. Lets face it – we have no attacking threat anyway so Pardew will go defensive. Regardless of the formation I think that is the team that will play. May Tiote might sub for Abeid but I’d prefer Abeid there.

    Was anyone else saying “Please be Gouffran, please be Gouffran.”?

    for once pardew has injuries and he’s not making excuses as much as normal. he seems like much less of a c**t since that keith bishop pr guy has been telling him what to say.
    hopefully we’ll get enough injuries to force him into playing armstrong.
