Steve McClaren Gives Positive Injury Update


In his press conference today Steve McClaren was even more than upbeat on a number of things – the January transfer window and how strong his squad is and the manager now thinks the squad is good enough now to avoid relegation.

steve mcclaren press conf

Steve McClaren – very upbeat today

This is what Steve said about the injured players coming back:

“Paul Dummett has been training the last three or four days so he should be OK and Jack Colback is very very close.”

“Sadio will be a couple of weeks before he’s back on the grass and training with us so he should be ready for the Stoke game he should be fit.”

“Mbabu will be three or four weeks before he’s back.”

“What we see in the next three or four weeks even more strength to the squad and getting stronger with injured players coming back.”

Steven Taylor has been back in training now for a couple of weeks and Vurnon Anita is a week or so away from coming back to training with his hamstring injury.

So the injuries Newcastle have at the moment have us in 4th place in the Pysioroom.com injury table.

Liverpool and Manchester United are at the top with both clubs having seven injured players – it’s good not to be at the top of that league for a change.

The five injured players are Vurnon Anita (hamstring), Gabby Obertan (knee), Sadio Haidara (knee), Tim Krul (ACL knee) and Curtis Good (hip/thigh).

How Will Newcastle Fare At Everton?

    Loads of “like new signings” soon!

    I do hope these (real) new signings know how to get injured at important times. We’ve got to keep up the pace at the top of the injury league.

    OP…Took me a second too.

    To think, people were calling for a LB during the window.

    Love is a burning thing
    And it makes a fiery ring.
    Bound by wild desire
    I fell into a ring of fire.

    [2x]
    I fell into a burning ring of fire,
    I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
    And it burns, burns, burns,
    The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

    The taste of love is sweet
    When hearts like ours meet.
    I fell for you like a child,
    Oh, but the fire went wild.

    I fell into a burning ring of fire,
    I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
    And it burns, burns, burns,
    The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

    I fell into a burning ring of fire,
    I went down, down, down as the flames went higher
    And it burns, burns, burns,
    The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

    And it burns, burns, burns,
    The ring of fire, the ring of fire,
    The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

    So that vote is very close, but I still go with my 2-0 win prediction, OP’s, Wijnaldum and my Perez as the scorers.

    That’s a point, has there been any further developments with regards to the training facility works?

    Are the club still unsure as to our PL future? Perhaps they need to have a chat with Freddy.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Leicester can keep this going. Love an underdog, so fingers crossed for them. Still quite an achiement to date.

    Jib Jibberish – stop trying to divert attention with posting photos. I know plenty about Bennys parents
    His dad Kamel was a Tunisian International who went to France in 1973 to work in a foundry. I think he was 8 years old in 1962 and lives in Châtenay Malabry – south West Paris.
    I have asked a simple question provide your sources please -it is not difficult.

    I believe you cannot because you have made another famous gaffe – mixing up stuff on Google and then – like one of your pet hates – still sticking to the story despite owerwhelming evidence to the contrary.
    Tunisia became independent in 1956 and has nothing to do with your waffle -some time ago you bragged you were a lecturer in Modern European History excuse my French but you know F**K all about French History.
    Last time I’ll ask you to provide links/evidence come on.

    6 points from the next 2 games would be amazing.
    We need to start beating teams like Everton (who are having a nightmare at home) and west brom at home.
    Then we need to pull off the odd shock and get a result against Chelsea or city.

    7 points from the next 4 games would be a huge lift for everyone.

    Simple.

    Redknapp said something on SSN last night about Leicester.

    “Leicester have set a standard, not only for themselves but every other so called small team in the league”

    Or something very similar, went on to say, why can’t all the other teams go out give 100% in each game with no fear?.

    They’ve shown it can be done, hard work 100% effort and commitment every game and belief.

    I agree with what he said, I’d love to see them win it. It would be amazing
