There is news in the Chronicle today that Papiss Cisse may have recovered form his groin injury in times for the vital home game against West Brom a week on Saturday.
Papiss is in France at the moment and working with a personal trainer following the groin operation he had two weeks ago.
Papiss Cisse – could play within two weeks
The Senegal international is still in France apparently working with a personal trainer following a small groin operation.
Coming back from any injury is always dodgy so we hope there are no setbacks with the Senegal International because we need him back and we need him – we need somebody – to start scoring goals for us this season – otherwise we could be doomed to the Championship.
Cisse has been out of action for Newcastle since our 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa on 19th December – just over 5 weeks ago.
Since then we have played seven games and lost five of them.
And as usual we have picked up a ton of injuries this season, but that’s nothing new and we shouldn’t act surprised when that happens.
It happens all the time, which is one reason we should have an even bigger squad than most Premier League clubs – not a smaller one.
Let’s hope Papiss is available for the West Brom game – a game we have to win.
