Good Players On The Way Back For Newcastle

Newcastle are starting to get players back from injury and suspension, so Moussa Sissoko will be back for next Saturday’s game at Leicester City, which is turning into a relegation 6 pointer, after we have somehow managed to lose seven games on the trot for the first time ever in the Premier league – but Leicester have now won four games on the trot.

Siem de Jong – scoring on Saturday

John Carver has to start getting some results if Newcastle are going to pull away from the relegation zone in what is looking like a death dive into the second division,  and we hope we are not going to be down to the last game or two to see if we will be relegated this season.

This is what John has said on players coming back:

“It will boost everybody’s confidence seeing Siem come back and we know Moussa Sissoko will be back next week and Paul Dummett will be back next week.”

“They’re back at the most important time and that is with four games to go.”

“The one thing I will say is that you can see why we bought de Jong, you can see the quality he has and the fans will be excited by watching him when he’s fully fit.”

“He needs to get 90 minutes under his belt playing in the Under 21s and he will play on Tuesday. So he won’t start next weekend at Leicester, but he will be involved again and might get longer than 20 minutes.”

“Paul Dummett has had a couple of good weeks training and so hopefully he should be OK for next weekend as well.

“Rolando Aarons needs to get a game under his belt but he is not ready for the Tuesday U-21s match, so you might get him the last couple of games of the season.”

It looks like Moussa Sissoko and Paul Dummett could both start the game at Leicester City, so that’s two players back from last week, and hopefully Siem can come on at some point in the second half.

But we really have our doubts about Rolando – it looks now that the best he can do is the last two games, but we’d by surprised if he plays again this season, whatever John Carver has said about his season not being over.

And Papiss Cisse on Saturday will serve out the last game of his seven game ban, so he will be back in our next game at home to West Brom.

We don’t have too much hope of getting anything on Saturday, unless our players show some fight, guts,  courage and determination, which for us were all missing in the second half on Saturday, after we went behind.

But the odds are that we could be outfought by a resurgent Leicester City side.

What do you think?

    I actually think we’ll somehow manage to stay up.
    We’re very lucky in that all 4 of our last games are very winnable.

    Still, should never have got to this point.

    NUFC is such an appallingly run club.

    I am a Geordie and I would do all I could to get the club on all fronts to be part of the city again and secure players good enough etc.
    I bet Charnley is on at least 100k a year.

    Ashley, if you’re reading this, I’d do his job for half that.
    Am I qualified?
    Hell yes. Not with a degree, but a birth certificate that says ‘born in the Newcastle General hospital’.

    Stop robbing us of everything our club is to us all.

    I think we’ll stay up but I hope we go down or we get another few seasons exactly like this one.

    I’ll take relegation to get rid of Ashley.

    Relying on a player who has barely played in De Jong.

    A player who’s shite at LB but looks far more accomplished as a CB be it in limited appearances there (does he look a good CB simply because willo is so piss poor?)

    Then we have a player who clearly doesn’t want to be here but was made captain whilst our current shite captain was out who himself doesn’t want to be here (couldn’t make that up)

    And finally a youngster who showed a few flashes in cameo’s but has been injured most of the season.

    Sounds like a plan.

    The clubs rotten to the core and there’s only one person to blame. Fcuking pathetic.

    Our only hope is that Leicester are knackered from Wednesday nights game against Chelsea.
