Two More Newcastle Players Out For The Season


Massadio Haidara is out for the season as John Carver confirmed that he had surgery on his knee in Lyon last Thursday, and Jak Alnwick’s career at Newcastle is over,  as he tweeted today that he has sustained a wrist injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season.

Massadio Haidara – will return for pre-season

In his news conference today for the Sunderland game, John Carver confirmed that Massadio had surgery on his knee last Thursday.

The young Frenchman injured his knee in the last win we had – the 1-0 home win against Aston Villa back on 28th February.

This is what Carver said today:

“Sadio Haidara had a cyst taken off his knee last Thursday in France, and he won’t be available for the rest of the season.”

Massadio’s surgery was well publicized last week in France and we suppose it’s now official with John’s announcement.

And Jak Alnwick’s Newcastle career is over,  after he injured his wrist and will have surgery on it soon – but his loan spell at Bradford City.

This is what Jak tweeted today:

“Unfortunately my season is over. On route to Manchester to get wrist surgery.” “Looking forward to a new challenge next season.”

Jak joined Newcastle from Sunderland back in 2008 as a 14 year-old, and he came through the Newcastle Youth Academy, and played for the England U17 and U18 sides.

The 21 year-old played 8 times for the Newcastle first team this season, after he was thrown in at the deep end in the second half of the home game against Chelsea.

That’s when Rob Elliott injured his thigh just before half time, and Tim Krul was already out injured, so in came Jak for the second half and we won that game 2-1 to break Chelsea’s unbeaten streak since the previous April.

The Hexham-born goalkeeper’s contract runs out at the end of June and at that time he will become a free agent.

We wish Jak all the best in his future career in football.

    Alnwick is nowhere near good enough for Newcastle. Goodluck else where, you won’t be missed here though.

    I think Alnwick is a good indication of what happens to a goalkeeper prospect who doesn’t get playing time before he is 21!

    …and imagine being thrown in goal behind our defense! What a nightmare!

    This blog by the Grauniad will strike a distinct chord with many posters on here.
    It’s a bit long but a good read and mentions some stuff not said before like Llambias’ run in with the council.

    alnwick is not as bad a keeper as many on here make out more of a sign of how badly run or youth / under 21 set up is the lad was thrown in at the deep end with very little back and very little playing time he should have been out on loan playing games this is the club that sold foster far to cheap they continue to let the kids down with poor coaching and penny pinching

    Jesper

    If we play like we did in the 2nd half against arsenal, ball on the deck, pressing and getting stuck in, high intensity, then I think the movement and flair of cabella/Arma/perez will be too much for O’Shea/Vergini/Jones/Coates

    I would say your right. Most on here would not be aware that Jak won Newcastle’s “Wor Jackie” award , for best academy under-18 player in 2011.
    But I guess most on here wouldn’t have a clue of Wor Jackie.

    optimistic prime / Jeffrey

    That Guardian article’s pretty damning and it’s hoped that it’s the start of media interest in Ashley’s shenanigans and greed.

    Media attention such as that won’t affect Ashley one little bit and he’ll just ride it without even an attempt at trying to present a positive side to his ownership. That in itself is virtually impossible.

    With luck, some benevolent and wealthy soul might just want to be the white knight that rescues Newcastle United from the clutches of the dragon that is Ashley.

    Here’s hoping…..

    You’re not a fan. You don’t go to the matches. You haven’t seen the life sucked out of this club. You don’t know what you are talking about.

    I went to the Toon vs Arsenal match the other week. First match in ages.

    Two of my mates at work tried to give me their season tickets for the game because even though arsenal were in town, with Sanchez etc, the utter apathy the regime has instilled in the fans is so unbearably demoralising, people just don’t want to go anymore.

    The hoards of Sports Direct and Wonga advertising is depressing. The ambition, or total lack of, is depressing.

    The whole operation has sucked the fun out of supporting this club through thick and thin, through relegation and almost but not quite success.

    Some interesting new quotes from Johnny C.:
    “Alan Pardew left me with a very deep squad. He built us up last summer just in case we had a bad run of injuries and suspensions. That’s why we’re so high up in the league table now. All I have to do is maintain an even keel and get us over the line with more than 37 points. That’s my task and I’m up to it.”
    Ta Johnny C. 😯
