Center-Back Returning For Newcastle


Newcastle will not be buying a center-back this January,  even though we have only two experienced center-backs fit for the rest of the season, after Steven Taylor ruptured his Achilles and will not return until next season.

Curtis Good Ecuador+22got4we3XVl

21 year-old Curtis Good – in Australia’s colors

The Newcastle U-21 side lost by 1-0 to Blackburn Rovers last Monday night in the U-21 Premier League Cup, and the side now play at Reading today.

And after being injured last March 3rd, when he made his debut for Australia, Curtis Good has traveled with the squad for the game today.

It’s very likely that Good will be playing against Reading, and it was unlucky the 21 year-old missed out on the World Cup in Brazil because of that hip injury, but the injury has taken a lot longer to heal than first envisaged.

Curtis seems to have shown that he is now fully fit during the warm weather training in Dubai last week.

Curtis has only played once for Newcastle United, when he played at Morecambe in the League Cup last season, and if he can find some form he may get a chance in the first team before the end of this season.

If either Colo or Willo get injured in the next four months, somebody will have to come in, although local lad Paul Dummett would be first choice to fill in at center-back.

When Curtis arrived at Newcastle for £400K from Melbourne Heart in the summer of 2012, he signed a six year deal, but he needs to show he has what it takes to make it at Newcastle and we’d be very surprised if he’s sent out on loan this season.

But you never really know what Newcastle will do these days.

Curtis had had two good loan spells while at Newcastle at Bradford City and Dundee United, and we still think the young Aussie can make it at Newcastle, but time is starting to run out a bit.

    So why did they say MYM wasn’t replaced because of timing rather than the truth of which is that we didn’t think we need to.

    Musical chairs, blog style again. Thank goodness for copy and paste.

    Safe!! I don’t think so. Keep up our present form and it’s championship football for next season.

    Mind you I think this new thread by you Ed is a tongue in cheek effort to provoke a reaction such as mine.

    I see that Donaldson was chosen as MOM against MU another that slipped through the net?

    Ditto above

    I’m no financial expert but the talk of NUFC owing money to Ashley is a load of tosh. He is NUFC with all of its assets and (if there was any) debts.

    The fact that the club has made massive profits means that he has. As it has already been pointed out a million times without exaggeration, he has used the club as a massive sandwich board to enhance his many companies vast wealth.

    NUFC being in debt to him is a load of b*llocks.

    if the rumour is true on cisse then i have no doubt he will be off !
    yes he’s happy at our club but to offer him close to 5 times his wages i wouldnt blame anyone esp at his age.

    on curtis well tbf the lads not going to get any better from not playing and if the report that he’s 21 is true then he needs to be breaking into the team now (although last time i heard he was 19)
    the cb has been a prob forever at our club though so we should do what we did with woodgate and colo and splash big money to get it sorted as sadly colo’s time as cb is coming to an end.

    Essex,
    I get your point but the fact of the matter is we are in debt and that’s exactly where he wants us, the debt justifies his free advertising and keeps any potential buyer away.

    I had from a friend of a friend that Mike Ashley was bullied as a kid by some Geordie kid and this is his way of getting revenge on the Geordie people.

    This is worth looking at for the Ajax fans comments – they think Newcastle is a step down from Ajax – http://www.ajaxshowtime.com/bijzaken-en-geruchten/85083/-newcastle-moet-met-frank-praten-.html

    JFA in debt to who? The club had profits of £129m last year. Ashley’s companies of which NUFC are part are worth billions. It is all virtual money that he can shuffle around his monopoly board as he pleases.
    If he is using the club as a loss leader that’s up to him but he is most certainly not owed millions by NUFC.

    To put it another way, I use my credit card to buy goods and services so therefore have constant debt. But I have assets that more than cover this temporary shortfall and an income to repay my debts each month.

    He could easily do this an a larger corporate scale, I still say he is not owed money by NUFC, its a business ploy and is a load of cr^p.

    Jail I won’t be after this season ends
    Can see it being like last year as Carver might be a decent trainer but he ain’t no manager as can be seen by his record.
    Going to be a washout with us finishing between 12th and 15th

    The club did not have “profits of £129m last year” ffs!

    NUFC put debt on the submitted accounts, last time it totalled £129mil and if any had been repaid (like the £11 mil) I’m sure the club would waste no time in telling us.

    It actually might not be a bad thing at all if Palace got to Wembley and avoided the drop, might make a few people wake up and realise what’s happening here.

    Just read an interesting article – not that I think it will be a problem, but humour me!

    What If John Carver Says “No Thanks”?

    *it’s implied that Carver will be offered to take charge until summer when someone else will be brought in.

    On pardew, he’d probably have instructions off the fat man to only try and win a certain amount of games when he was with us.
    MA will know he’s not popular with the fans so his way of p1ss1ng us off is showing no ambition.

    And….. Wait for it….. Guess who’s claiming the credit for laying the foundations for Southampton’s success? (see today’s Times).

    Wonder if he’s gonna be claiming responsibility for NUFC’s success too?

    @Jesper

    It would be Beardsley and Stone and if they could not do it Colo and then we would look at getting a caretaker manager by that time we would be in the bottom 3

    Pardews teams are scoring goals and entertaining and beating Southampton away from home who would have thought it ?

    I haven’t a clue about corporate finance but as an intelligent ( not according to my wife) layman I cannot see how NUFC could be in debt.

    My head is aching through thinking about it so that’s all I’m saying on the subject.

    Are there people now regretting the loss of Pardew.

    I hasten to add that that I’m not although I never thought he was as bad as he was often painted.

    …him leaving put a smile on my face! Now we just need to figure out how we get rid of the Fat one. It’s a bit more tricky.

    I don’t think it always occurs to a lot of Newcastle fans that our squad isn’t as good as they think, we have poor defensive players and not exactly the best of strikers, that wasn’t Pardews falt.

    Not regretting seeing the back of him and his records whatsoever it can only be good, if Mashers hires another duffer it’s another nail in his coffin if he gets FDB happy days.
