Newcastle Nervously Await Prognosis On Two Players


We are still waiting to hear from the Newcastle medics on what the prognosis is on the knee  injuries to both Cheick Tiote and Paul Dummett.

Paul Dummett – in action this season

Cheick injured his knee playing for the Ivory Coast in Equatorial Guinea in the African Cup of Nations last month, and he was also injured earlier this season, and has played only 12 times for Newcastle this season.

Cheick’s knee injury is thought to be the more serious of the two, and it could mean he’s out for the rest of the season.

And if that turns out to be the case, he will have played his last game for the Magpies, since he’s expected to be sold in the summer.

Paul Dummett is also an important player for Newcastle, since he  has shown this season that he can play at center-back, and Newcastle have only two experienced center-backs left in the squad for the rest of the season.

They are Colo (Fab Coloccini) and Willo (Mike Williamson), and if either of those get injured, Paul would be the one to come in – if he’s fit.

However, if Paul is going to be out for some time it would make our problems at center-back even worse, and it’s a good question who Newcastle would then call on.

Maybe 21 year-old Australian International Curtis Good, who unfortunately tends to pick up a lot of injuries, and of course we also have loaned out 20 year-old Remie Streete to Rangers for the rest of the season,  but he’s also out injured at the moment.

The worst news would be if both Tiote and Dummett are out for several months, and that would make an already inadequate squad even further weakened for the rest of the season.

Newcastle really need to stop making these deals in the January transfer which weaken the squad for the rest of the season.

It’s a dangerous and even reckless way to run a football club, where money is more important than the strength of the squad, and Newcastle  make far too many dicey deals in the January transfer window.

If we are to become a successful club again it has to stop.

    Have you heard of Lubo Satka ?

    This kid won’t disgrace himself if called on

    plus we have right backs to cover for Janmaat who has played in the middle of defence many times for Feyernoord

    Jeff, young Satka shows real potential, watched the kid a number of times, thing is if we get any injuries to Colo or Willy then he may have to show that potential sooner rather than later, we really should have got some cover in that window that has just gone, a loanee would have done fine, our man at the top is on the gamble again.

    If Dummett is fit then i’d play Colo and Dummett.

    If Dummett is out, then Colo and Satka.

    Not too bothered about Tiote, Abeid needs to play more and playing Tiote usually limits us in midifield.

    I see Birmingham City have gone into receivership…

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-31504347?

    How long until our glorious leader jumps in with a (less than) generous offer?

    Would certainly back up this interesting theory…

    And in other news
    While the Italian media is full of Rafa Benitez AND the Napoli sporting director Riccardo Bigon refusing to confirm Benitez will be at Napoli next season , there is no mention of NUFC , only Liverpool , which seems logical as RB still has a lovely house in West Kirby . If Brendan Rodgers misses top 4 he could be shown the door.

    As usual, Ashley’s no doubt been focused on costs when he’s loaned players out.

    What a shower they are

    Ed – for Newcastle to be a successful club we would need a chairman ready to release funds which is not in the Ashley business plan – fattys happy enough to collect Prem league TV money whilst we stagnate in lower mid table mediocrity – guess we should get used to it

    Everyone…thank you for the kind words today, it warms my heart 🙂

    …even you John Irving

    By the way Lasse Schøne is not a winger – I am sure he can play out wide, but he’s a Att. CM.

    jesper- Many congratulations. Happiness in life is associated with such positive human interactions. Receiving positivity from fellow bloggers reinforces your own family positivity and is clearly the recipe for a good feeling. Well done.

    My grandfather used to say on such family ocassions that it even surpassed spending time in the Northumberland countryside on a nice day whatever the season. He used to describe it as thinking of Cecil Rhodes dictum about winning the first prize in the lottery of life.

    As for the blog some things never change the ego’s getting in the way of a pleasurable experience when coming on here.

    “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” lyrics

    Mr Tuff
    Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”

    I can’t get no satisfaction
    I can’t get no satisfaction
    ‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can’t get no, I can’t get no
    When I’m drivin’ in my car
    And that man comes on the radio
    And he’s tellin’ me more and more
    About some useless information
    Supposed to fire my imagination
    I can’t get no, oh no no no
    Hey hey hey, that’s what I say
    I can’t get no satisfaction
    I can’t get no satisfaction
    ‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can’t get no, I can’t get no
    When I’m watchin’ my TV
    And that man comes on to tell me
    How white my shirts can be
    But he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke
    The same cigarrettes as me
    I can’t get no, oh no no no
    Hey hey hey, that’s what I say
    I can’t get no satisfaction
    I can’t get no girl reaction
    Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
    I can’t get no, I can’t get no
    When I’m ridin’ round the world
    And I’m doin’ this and I’m signing that
    And I’m tryin’ to make some girl
    Who tells me baby better come back later next week
    Cause you see I’m on losing streak
    I can’t get no, oh no no no
    Hey hey hey, that’s what I say
    I can’t get no, I can’t get no
    I can’t get no satisfaction
    No satisfaction, no satisfaction etc.

    Cabaye is injured and even if he wasn’t and don’t think he’s good enough to start for them!! I think Cabaye might replace Steven Gerrard at Liverpool next season.
