Newcastle Officially Well On Top Of PL Injury League


The Injury League website has reported today that Newcastle remain well on top of the injury league for the Premier League for this season so far, with Manchester  United in second place, Arsenal 3rd and Everton in 4th place.

There has been lots of news about the Red Devils injury troubles this season, but it’s nothing compared to those of Newcastle, and it’s been a chronic problem  for Newcastle for many years – and there has to be a reason why we pick up so many injuries every season – especially hamstring injuries..

The injury league allocates points each week for the number of players that are missing for each club – and here is their latest table.

injury league

The Physioroom.com web-site details the number of injuries each club has and what they are plus estimated retunr dates, and at the moment we are top (of course) with 10 injuries followed by Hull with eight and then Arsenal, Everton and Liverpool with seven injured players each.

Notice that Chelsea – who are top of the league – have had the fewest problems with injuries this season, and maybe we should see what they do in their training and what the medics do – to ensure few injuries are picked up.

It would be a huge thing if Newcastle this season had only one or two injured players out each week – like Chelsea have had.

Maybe we would have been in the top six?

It’s worth a trip down to Stamford Bridge to at least investigate.

The way to put this to Mike Ashley is that we could feel much stronger sides each week, and therefore we would tend to get better results – which means we would finish higher up in the Premier League – which means we would get more money evry Mat from the PL

That would get Mike’s attention. 😀

    Santon for me has been the most disappointing player of the Pardew era. Signed as a huge coup with a lot of promise and he’s never ever shown it. I can count on one hand the number of good games he’s had. Aside from those he’s been bang average at best and poor at worst.

    I think he’s suffered from poor coaching, lack of playing identity and injuries of course. Unfortunately for him it seems the bad factors have combined and targeted him. Id sell him. Unless he’s going to be used and retrained as a RB or RW then we don’t need him.

    As for those injuries, unacceptable and should have properly been tackled years ago.

    Santon’s the best full back in the league.

    The injuries, all clubs get them but we can’t rotate as much due to a lack of quality in depth.

    why oh why,
    My heart bleeds for him, I won’t forget that smug laugh when I asked him whether he’d still be here next season when I was behind him in the checkout queue at the airport.

    I feel a bit sorry for Santon, I never think he’s as bad as most folk make out, and he’s often vilified for not actually defending that much. In the modern game, technically there aren’t many full back’s that do. In the modern era supporting the midfield with overlapping runs seems to be the primary task. Defensive attributes appear to be optional? Or is that just me getting nostalgic for the old days when all defenders job descriptions began with the words ‘Knack the opposition (Insert applicable role)’

    I think the article from the mag is basically showing how little trust there is from fans towards Ashley.

    It maybe far fetched but if he could do it there’d be a few who’d beleive he’d try.

    Honestly, I think that whenever we get de Jong, Abeid and Aarons back we are going to have a very good attacking side with good depth. What worries me is our back line now that Stevie T is out with another season ending injury. I think it would be nice if we brought in another striker but our more immediate need are at CB and preferably two of them. Otherwise I think that we have a really solid side when healthy.

    Op, i agree that he would try, but there would be way too much opposition for him to succeed, from within and outside of Newcastle. I even suspect the mackems would back us in that one, after all, they look forward to the derbies too.

    Who’s better than Santon?? I can’t think of anyone. Janmaat is all good, but he’s liable to the odd mistake.

    “Just to add to Thumps comment, MA does not own SJP, the City Council do, and there is no way they will let it happen.”

    WRONG – City Council do not own SJP – Mr Tubbs does. He will not own the land as its freehold or leasehold cannot recall which -but all the structures thereon he owns.

    it seems AP’s parting gift was not taking his stooges with him, all on long term contracts who seemingly would never get a gig anywhere else.

    If you were garde or anyone else and you saw carver, stone and woodman hanging around it must be devastating.

    A week ago I as feeling quite optimistic, thinking garde was coming in and there was even some daft talk of a takeover from a Dubai group. Roll forward a week and the misery is never ending, even after pardew’s gone!!.

    That article in the Mag is far fetched but it is frightening knowing that there’s a very good reason for him wanting Rangers that nobody can figure out.

    But then again what adavantage would there be to having Rangers in the PL as opposed to us, they would still need the same amount of spending to keep up there, and I don’t think Ibrox holds as many as SJP anyway.

    Santon is indeed one of the best fullbacks in the league so is janmaar
    Top 3 at worst
    Unfortunately for them playing alongside the absolutely wretched colocinni can make even good fullback look terrible
