Newcastle United really need to look at how we pick up so many injuries in training and there’s more bad news today that there are two new injuries Newcastle have picked up.
Andros Townsend is now doubtful with a knock and will probably have to miss the game tonight at Stoke and striker Papiss Cisse, who has just returned to training, will not play tonight but could be fit for the game against Bournemouth on Saturday.
That’s really bad news on Townsend, but the club must get to the bottom of all the injuries we pick up every single season.
Andros Townsend – will miss the game tonight
Fab Coloccini will miss the next two games because he was injured in a warm-down after a game he didn’t even play in.
Fabricio injured his calf in the warm-down after the 2-1 win over Lillestrom in southern Spain.
Exactly what is going on during Newcastle’s training sessions?
Picking up all these injuries and the way they are picked up only adds to the growing perspective that Newcastle United are incompetently run at almost every level of the club.
There seems a losing mentality all around.
We have spent £82M on new players but still have one of the worst defenses in the Premier League since we didn’t strengthen the defense – and we still haven’t brought in a recognized PL striker, so we still find it difficult to score goals.
Conceding too many goals and not being able to score goals seems like a side who may have struggled with relegation all season long.
Newcastle are not helping themselves this season – that’s the unfortunate bottom line.
