Whatever Newcastle Are DoIng On This – It’s Not Working


Newcastle are renowned for being at the top of the Injury Table in the Premier League almost every single season as injuries tend to decimate our squad, because it has never been very big to start with.

And at the Fans Forum meeting last Monday night a question was asked about the injuries we pick up every season and whether there was anything the club are doing to try to reduce the injuries.

Lee Charnley – Newcastle Managing Director

Here’s the question and answer from Monday night.

======

Question:

Alan Clark (AC): “We seem to be regularly top of the Premier League injury table. Are the club looking into this and also the players who are regularly injured?”

Answer:

The club outlined the immense amount of data it gathers in order to analyse players’ performance on a daily basis.

While some injuries have been unlucky, the club pays very close attention to recurring injuries in order to lessen their frequency and ensure as many players are available to play as possible.

======

Well let’s just say what’s clear – whatever Newcastle are doing with that data on injuries – it’s certainly not helping to reduce the number of injuries we get in any way and we are well on top of the table this season.

Newcastle have been top of the Premier League Injury League for a long long time – so there’s something wrong somewhere.

Here’s is the latest Injury League for games so far in the Premier League.

It’s OK collecting all the data on injuries, but if we cannot reduce the number of injuries something else should be tried.

Maybe even get some experts in to review how the club handles injuries, how we train, how we warm up, how we warm down and the like.

And we saw recently it’s possible that Newcastle sustain injuries during a warm-down when Colo picked up his calf injury in La Manga and he didn’t even play in the game.

This is very important stuff because every season the team we can put out on the field is compromised because players are simply not available due to injury.

What do you think?

    Funny old game eh? If the toon had conceded those 2 Man U goals it would have been ‘take up the pitchforks’ time.

    Rotunda Wat is it exactly that i should be doing?
    Strange how when pardew was on a good run at the start of the season people mentioning him on here were told to shut up he’s not here anymore blah blah blah
    but now he’s on every thread lol
    I take it rotunda still doesn’t blame the poor squad poor running of the club toss pot of an owner not buying the right players at the right time? It was all pardews fault!

    I don’t think it could have been Lee who answered that question. I’m sure he was busy most of the night checking his trousers were on the right way round.

    betty,

    With regard to your earlier point. I have always feared Ashley could bring about the end of this club. That’s the exact opposite of wishing for it.
    I know that makes me a Jeremiah in your view.
    The thing is though, Jeremiah was right.

    BandB……….. Fear of failure isn’t the same as hoping for it. Supporting NUFC is not for the faint hearted I know but when it’s a deep rooted obsession , acceptance of failure to spite the owner is not an option for me.

    Forgot about Aarons. He’d make the bench. Got a feeling Riviere will do well. He did well against Man Utd last season and shouldve had 3 goals. His finishing is the problem. His general play is good.

    He’s still a bit if a pratt though.
    Did anyone catch that little shot of him today when he raised a water bottle to his gob for a big swig and it was bang empty! Ha ha ha. He’s having a bad run with the drinks,after that one the other week when he took one in the eye opening his water bottle…

    I think what you’re meant to do is have the good grace to admit that history shows us time and again that AP is ultimately a notoriously inconsistent failure, no matter where he is at.

    When we were being constantly told what a great job AP was doing at CP, most of us suggested it would be short lived.

    Munster was big enough to admit it and Ed did, albeit grudgingly. If AP had had continued success I would have had to acede to your better judgement. I guess that doesn’t work though if the opposite is true.

    Rotunda in fairness i merely said he was a lower mid table manager. I stick by that but am enjoying his current mess. I found catchys obsession worse than yours especially when he was pushing goons like ole gunnar as replacement.

    I think it’s ridiculous when people compare moyes to LVG.

    LVG got CL in his first season and they are still in Europe, the FA cup and are 5th.

    Moyes didn’t even make top 6, despite shelling out fortunes on Fellaini etc to play defensive hoofball.

    I see the Mag is highlighting the rank bad results of NUFC at first team, under 21s and under 18s since January 2015. Truly dreadful.

    NUFC.com is saying similar and features the under 18s under the heading “Garbage”. The poor lad in the picture is unfortunate because he’s been given little chance this season and when he has, he’s been played out of position. He looks a shadow of his former self. The first time he comes to prominence with his photo, it’s under that sort of heading. Not good. I know the lad. I know his game. I’ve seen him many times before he joined NUFC. Very good player. NUFC aren’t getting the best from him. Not the lad’s fault.
