More Good News For Newcastle On The Injury Front

10:00 am, Saturday, February 27th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 4 Comments

News today that Kevin Mbabu has returned to training with the Newcastle first team and that could give us another option at our problematic left-back position.

We’re not sure whether Paul Dummett will be available for the game at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday night, but if Kevin is fit he showed against Chelsea last September that he’s more than capable of playing well at left back in a crucial game for Newcastle.

Kevin seems to have recovered from his latest problem – a thigh injury – which has kept him out of action since the beginning of the year – and it’s good that we are getting more players coming back from injury.

Massadio Haidara is still out with his knee injury but he is finally expected to return in two or three weeks.

And at Stoke, Steve McClaren may go with Jack Colback at left back if Dummett is still not available.

We will need as many players back from injury as possible if we are to survive in the Premier League this season during the crucial 12 game run-in.

    Having his chocolate hob nob fall in to hos tea leaving only the little piece he was holding between his fingers is too good for Ashley.

    Tsunki’s and B and B’s rapprochement is thrown out within 24 hours.
    Mr Tuff , the blogs resident sociopath is at it again.
    He comes on as Onlineguy.
    Then insults a bloggers nationality knowing full well that the blatant rudeness and crassness will evince a strong reaction.

    He is everything he accuses others of being , in classic sociopathic behaviour

    A sly dog, a multiple , a serial Google user , not really interested in footy at all ,only mentions incoming insults never the outgoing ones that provoked the whole thing.
    When reading his and Onlineguy’s posts I had to keep checking which was which , the style is identical.
    Oh for the days of proper internet discourse with Yahoo chat (for those of you who can remember it)
    Mr Tuff in Voice Chat would have been rumbled for the “no mark” he is within minutes !

    If Mbabu is fit why not play him at RB and Janmaat in the centre. Cannot be as bad as the two muppets currently pretending to be CB’s
