There’s some good news today that probably our best player this season – Daryl Janmaat – will be fit to play at Liverpool next Monday night.
Daryl Janmaat – fit for Liverpool game
The Shields Gazette has just reported the fear that Daryl would be out with his calf injury are unfounded, and he is fit to play after seeming to pick up a calf problem in the warm-up on Sunday at the Stadium of Light.
It’s important we have Daryl available, since in Coloccini’s absence, he has shown he is a very good center-back, and was one of the few players who could hold his head up after Sunday’s disastrous result.
He was second in our Man of the Match pill behind only Jonas – who also showed guts and courage on Sunday and had a good game.
Daryl was our signing of the summer last year for just £5M from Feyenoord, and he more than adequately replaced Mathieu Debuchy.
Mehdi Abeid was fit for the Sunderland game, but Jonas was preferred in central midfield, and that could also be the case at Anfield.
We should hear on Saturday at John Carver’s news conference if Rolando Aarons is fit to play – after he has been out since November 1st with hamstring problems.
We really need a will-o’-the-wisp player like Rolando – and of course he can score goals too – and we need them – with just two goals scored in our last six games.
Having Rolando Aarons fully fit would be huge boost for Newcastle – so we’re hoping he is fit to play on Monday night, but if he isn’t then hopefully he will be available over our last six games – four of which are at home.
Our fans can make the difference in those games.
Howay The Lads!!
