Latest Injury Report For Newcastle

According to Newcastle are still at the top of the injury league and have 10 injured players , and while the Physioroom is not always accurate on the return date – neither are Newcastle come to think of it.

siem de jong black and white

Siem de Jong – back in four weeks

Here is the current  injury list for Newcastle:

Player          Injury Type                  Return Date (estimate)
F Coloccini	Muscular Injury	             no return date	 
R Elliott	Hip/Thigh Injury	     10th Jan 15	 
M Abeid	        Ankle/Foot Injury	     no return date	 
T Krul	        Ankle/Foot Injury	     10th Jan 15	 
R Taylor	Knee Injury	             1st Jan 15	 
R Aarons	Hamstring Injury	     13th Dec 14	 
G Obertan       Hip/Thigh Injury	     no return date	 
S De Jong       Thigh Muscle Strain	     10th Jan 15	 
D Santon	Knee Injury	             10th Jan 15	 
C Good	        Groin/Pelvis Injury	     no return date

One important players of course is Coloccini,  and we should hear from Alan Pardew tomorrow on whether he can make it for the Arsenal game – but Fabricio did play the whole game against Chelsea, and wasn’t limping off at the end – and we assume he has been having treatment on the injury this week – so we are hopeful.

Both goalkeepers Rob Elliot and Tim Krul are due back on 10th January – but that would still leave eight games where young Jal Alnwick would be the Newcastle goalkeeper, and that’s still asking a lot from the inexperienced Jak Alnwick.

We hope that Mehdi Abeid is fit enough to play on Saturday in place of Moussa Sissoko. who is suspended after picking up five yellow cards – and maybe that foot of his was a little painful after the match at Burnley?

Davide Santon and Siem de Jong are both due back on 10th January, that’s in just four weeks time, and if that holds true it would be great for the club, because they would be like two new players – and experienced ones too.

Ryan Taylor is due back January 1st which is also good news, and we expect Rolando Aarons to be fit for the game at Arsenal on Saturday – again Alan Pardew should be giving an update on Rolando tomorrow.

No return date yet on Gabby Obertan, and we’d love to know what’s going on with Curtis Good’s groin/pelvic injury,  which he picked up in early March playing in his debut for Australia.

If the return dates above are fairly accurate, and assuming Colo and Abeid are only slightly injured and could even play on Saturday – we should have eight players back by 10th January – and that has to be very good news.

Then Alan Pardew has to decide what will be his starting eleven – and that will not be easy.

Love it! 😀

    i know they bugger off to other teams for trophies and more money, but i think if you spend a good majority on the bench do these players deserve to have a medal or come out and say well i won the league with this team even though I didn’t play, i don’t think they deserve it.

    If we bring in a midfielder it will be a young one

    It’s only natural for any player to want to better there career, so because we’re have a regime we are the perfect stepping stone for up and (hopefully) coming players. But it’s a big world out there so a quality player at Newcastle will be most likely warming the bench at a top club.
    we can only make the best of them before MA cashes in.

    The Toon still lack a quality right footed winger Obertan is decent but we should have like a proper one ahead of him

    Because Sammy and Aarons look good on the left hand side so having them rotate on the left would be great means you have an option from the bench

    We were linked with a Dutch winger recently (cant mind his name ) and that could work well

    Would also like us to sign Ings as I think he will be quality in the next few years could even loan Burnley Armstrong to sweeten then deal ?

    I wouldn’t mind seeing santon tried on the right wing him and jaanmat could form quite the partnership also santon could drop back if needed

    where does dummett have a future for us is it left back or centre back, I think centre back is the way to go I think it would be a shame for him we keep shifting him about and make him a utility player

    nope he aint coming back to us so I don’t see the point

    its not worked out for him here for what ever reason I have moved on and look forward to seeing his replacement

    He belongs to us. Why should we let a world class player with champions league experience go? you may not see the point in him coming back ? well i do.
    He is better than Colocinni . younger , more decorated and has played at the highest level

    he will be sold in jan that’s why I don’t see the point

    while I don’t believe he was handled in the best way

    I don’t think he would have settled even in preseason he looked a bit like a rabbit in the headlights at times
    given more time he may have settled,

    to me he never looked the player we bought I never saw the leader he was at his last club when we got I was over the moon as I thought he would develop in a top defender and a natural leader

    sometimes it just don’t work out

    The Premier league is relentless, and I’m afraid even more so for a defender at Newcastle in recent years. I think Mbiwas confidence basically just got monstered by it. I actually think the rest of our defenders have shown a far greater resolve, although Steven Taylor, has occasionally lost his marbles from time to time. I suspect it’s got a fair bit to do with the being under the cosh, which appears to be happening less as a result of Colback and Sissoko in midfield and the young kids tracking back or falling back and pressing as one. It will be interesting when these very good players return, most notably DeJong, as to whether we try to open up a bit more, and whether then we start to ship more goals again.

    Colo is still out best CB we always seem to struggle when he’s out. We need another quality CB though as Saylor is too injury prone & Willo is just not strong enough. Dummett has come on leaps & bounds & CB is his best position. Why are we still going on about Cabs. He thought the grass was greener at PSG & is now just a squad man. Why would Tiote want to go to L’Pool the way they are playing? Need to get an emergency goalie sorted & quick. Colbaek has proved a great freebie & young Perez is certainly one to watch. Lets face it despite the injuries Pardew has got the squad playing for each other

    We could of course take HBA back off Steve Bruce, the lazy sh… doesn’t seem to be doing it for him either. What a waste of talent! Perhaps he’d loan us Harps back then – not. & that’s a joke Darlow in NUFC 25 man squad!!

    Mbiwa wasn’t that impressive tonight. He looked the part in the first ten minutes when given time and space. Once Man City stepped it up he was less effective and became more withdrawn and less confident. He started knocking a load of long balls in the second half and was less inclined to carry the ball forward from defence as he had early in the first half.
    I still reckon he’s better than Mangala though, who just looks useless!

    They’ve lost two nil at home and been knocked out of the Champions league. Are Roma a better team than Newcastle, or the Italian league as remotely competitive as England’s top division? You’d think probably not.

    Here’s another thing, just looking for reasons why we seem to have such a strong solidarity and ethic in the squad now, the weeding out of more problematic personalities perhaps, Benny, Marv, Mbiwa. A bit like, yeah but can he do it on a cold and rainy night in Bolton, type thing.

    completely agree jimmysmith and i was ben arfas biggest fanboy

    personally i loved watching him play but if the team ethic is better without him, so be it. theres very few talents in the world that are worth accomodating to the detriment of the team. which is why top clubs refused balotelli even when he was playing well

    Your hatred for Colo is unwarranted and unhealthy. You need to see a psyche. Maybe you should take Catchy with you.

    Mbiwa admitted himself that he was frightened of the EPL and consequently, his confidence was shot to pieces.

    As a leader, he failed to impress and as a defender, his reading of the game and positional sense was amateurish at times.

    Coloccini is 10 times the player Mbiwa is and if we can make our money back on him, it will be a good deal for all parties concerned.

    I see the papers are saying we are after Lewis Dunk from Brighton again. Not a bad player and will be an upgrade on Willo but we need a tall strong goal scoring centre back too and Van Dijk from Celtic fits the bill perfectly.

    Totally agree on your assessment. I cannot believe City wasted nigh on 30 million quid on that big plank. Demichaelis was a freebie and 3 times the player Mangala is.

    Yeah, but the “Prince”, was a boozer, gambler, womanizer and had a nasty, dirty streak in him, so you had to love him, Expat.

    So here we go again – half the first team squad have conspired through either injury or suspension to take Christmas off this year.
    On the injury side you have ask the question “what are we doing wrong?”
    In 2013 Fitness Guru Faye Downey was in charge and this year it’s fitness coach and Everton Legend Dave Billows, who has got off to a storming start with possibly the worst injury record we’ve ever had.
    Should we maybe be hiring fitness coaches from the colder North, not the warmer south?
