Bad News On The Injury Front For Newcastle

More bad news on the injury front for Newcastle as we hear that Rolando Aarons has still not recovered from that hamstring injury of his,  and he will miss the game tomorrow night at Tottenham and home game against Sunderland on Sunday- two vital games for the Magpies.

The news is that Rolando is still not ready to return from the hamstring problem he has had almost all season, and you have to wonder if bringing him back against medical advice for the Capital One Cup game at Manchester City was a good move for the manager, even though he scored after six minutes in that game.

He was injured back in September, but came back early for the Manchester City game but then picked up the same injury again, and has been out for a few months now.

Newcastle have had so many injuries this season and it’s affected our results, and if we could have had players like Rolando, Siem de Jong, Mehdi Abeid, Davide Santon and now Tim Krul and Rob Elliot all available – we could have a strong side.

But we continue to be top of the injury league – we currently have nine injuries tired with Arsenal – and we’ve noticed that Chelsea pick up very few injuries.

So we should probably send a spy down to Stanford Bridge and see what Jose Mourinho and his coaches do to keep the number inf injuries down.

Newcastle’s injury record this season is not only due to bad luck – we are sure of that.

Maybe on the positive side Mehdi Abeid could have recovered from his ankle/foot injury?

He’s the only injured player, apart from Rolando,  who is expected to return from injury this month. 🙁

    Thought I’d post this because it mentions new advertising entitlements for Coors. I bet it’s not the signage round the ground that’s currently all SD and fatty’s affiliated companies, more likely the new TV screen.

    Newcastle United Football Club and official brewing partner Molson Coors have agreed a contract extension that will see the North American beer giant reach 12 years as a key partner at St. James’ Park.

    Molson Coors has been a major supplier at the 52,000-capacity stadium for the past seven years, serving premium brands such as Carling, Grolsch, Coors Light, Caffreys and Cobra across concourses, hospitality areas and popular stadium bars including NINE and The Terrace.

    The new agreement, which also incorporates advertising entitlements across the stadium and club publications, will see the organisations’ flourishing partnership extended for an additional five years and will keep all stadium visitors suitably refreshed on matchdays and throughout the week.

    It’d be good if does allow them perimeter advertising such as the hoardings and the electronic ones. At least we’d have a company paying for the privilege. Ya know, maximising income n all that.

    If that is the case, could we possibly be seeing a downscale of SD at SJP? In readiness for fatty leaving? Perhaps he is going to sell us and is scaling back making sure the club has deals in place prior to his departure.

    If carlsberg did football clubs….

    Apparently the NE is the luckiest gambling area of the UK with a net profit for the inhabitants. Obviously this does not carry forward to our Team.
