Two Newcastle Defenders Suffer Injuries

11:36 pm, Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 22 Comments

There was news a few days ago that Paul Dummett had suffered a setback as he was coming back from his long-term hamstring strain, which he suffered last May.

There’s a little more news on Paul Dummett, and it seems he’s injured the hamstring again – so that’s not a good sign.

Paul Dummett – in action last week

That’s similar to what happened last season with young Rolando Aarons, who kept breaking down when trying to come back from a hamstring problem he picked up last September.

Rolando ended up playing only six times for the team last season – but he still scored two goals.

Of course we don’t expect Paul to suffer the same fate – but it’s always difficult coming back from hamstrings injuries.

Newcastle are not well off at full-back,  and if current starting left-back Massadio Haidara is injured, then we’ll be struggling as to who would come in at left back.

Paul is going to be out for several more weeks.

And Mike Williamson, who we expect to go out on loan to a Championship club, has also picked up an injury, but it’s not serious.

He is listed on as having an arm/elbow injury, and it seems he simply has an inflammation, but he may be OK for Monday night’s game with West Ham.

This is what assistant coach Paul Simpson has said about the two injuries:

“Paul Dummett’s had a little bit of a setback which is a blow.”“He picked up another little bit of hamstring damage last week in training which has set him back so we’re just monitoring that and nursing him through.

“Mike Williamson has missed a couple of days of training too.” “We hope it’s nothing serious and it’ll settle down very quickly and he should be available for selection for the West Ham game because it’s just a minor thing.”

The disappointing news is with Paul Dummett,  who has been injured for four months now, and Paul can do a good job for us at left back – and when required he’s proved to be a solid center-back too.

Currently Newcastle have five injured players, with Curtis Good (hip/thigh), Sylvain Marveaux (groin) and Emmanuel Riviere (knee) being the other three players out through injury.

The only player with any return date is Sylvain Marveaux, with an estimated return date of being fully fit of  October 3rd.

Comments welcome.

    It’s always sad with injuries but it’s not like Dummett is going to set the PL a light anyway;

    …a bit of a part player for us who needs upgrading;

  • 9 jesperfuglsang - capt'n awesome of the lemon crew // Sep 10, 2015 at 5:50 AM

    When something just get repeated over and over again is sort of just looses it’s meaning (if there ever was on)

    …now it’s just something most people doesn’t pay attention to. Was that the intention or did it all just backfire?

    Stay tuned for and update!

    Williamson was at Newcastle? I thought he was with the national squad.

  • 11 the truth will out // Sep 10, 2015 at 6:24 AM

  • 12 the truth will out // Sep 10, 2015 at 6:25 AM

    he would jump on a line to catch it, but head it instead

    Repeating does work – take advertising and politics. Not everything sinks in with some people the first time, if at all.

    “A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And no one can talk to a horse of course,
    That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed.”

    You also had a good transfer window. It’s always helpful to have a one stop shop for all things NUFC. Keep up the good work it’s much appreciated.

    The motel still open then ?

  • 15 Ian Toon // Sep 10, 2015 at 7:15 AM

    It’s too soon to be talking about us and Macca not doing well. Whilst hoping we can secure three points at West Ham – just as we did in a Cabaye inspired victory a few seasons back- it’s early doors. What we should expect to see is a clearformation and pattern in our play.
    Interesting stat since Pardew moved to Palace they have only drawn one game- against us. With 3 points for a win let’s show more ambition in our play.

    There’s repetition to consolidate, repetition to emphasise, repetition to irritate, repetition to fatigue. it’s sometime after this last point that we have repetition for hilarity. Ones own, possibly but hilarity nonetheless. And it matures well, like a fine single malt in the barrel, the more certain others tell you how fed up of it that they are. 🙂

    And with that, I’d like to add….

    Cabella is off to a bad start with some Marseilles fans.
    He gave his first interview for their TV channel wearing a Tshirt with “PARIS” on it and some fans were so annoyed OM had to pull the item.

    It seems NUFC hasn’t got exclusivity on small minded arsey fans.

    (la grosse bourde = the big blunder)

    Not only is the motel still open – Norman is still on the prowl.

    Jib Jiberrish (the blog pest) any new information from your club insider –
    Uncle Peanut expected today.

  • 21 Ian Toon // Sep 10, 2015 at 8:34 AM

    Jib- Just ignore. Your post was football related.

    Marcel Brands – PSV’s Technical director is quoted in a couple of articles today about how well the transfer of Wijnaldum went.

    Some of his comments may shock the regime critics

    ” Paris Saint-Germain were interested in him and when Newcastle United came, I did not think they wanted to pay our price. I thought it would be around fifteen million. But coach Steve McClaren wants to takeNewcastle that bit further. Gini also had a very good feeling with the coach so everything seemed perfect.
    NUFC is a very correct club, good people, an example of how well it can go. “
