Daryl Janmaat is said to be out of Saturday’s game against Swansea City, and we thought that would happen, we just had a feeling about it after the way he left the field at half time – to us he looked like he had had enough.
We assume he will miss the game because of the groin injury he picked up in the first half on Saturday, and that it has not healed sufficiently for him to play.
That will mean we will again have three non regulars playing in the back four and coupled with Karl Darlow in goal, who doesn’t have a lot of Premier League experience, we have another patched up defense for this vital game.
And that’s one reason we have little chance of beating Swansea on Saturday.
Daryl Janmaat – after 5-1 mauling at Crystal Palace
If it turns out that Daryl cannot play because of the two broken fingers he injured when he punched the dressing room wall at half time – he should be fined and the fine should be a heavy one – for incompetence and indiscipline.
The news out of Holland is that he has had surgery this week on the hand, but surely that will not stop him from playing in such an important game?
It’s critical that our experienced players are available to play in the final six games of the season, but with their attitude it seems there are too many of them who simply don’t seem to care at all.
As well as destroying the club, those in charge of supposedly managing the club, including the business we do in the transfer market have brought in far too many mediocre mercenaries over the last couple of years.
The Newcastle Board should all be fired in the summer and it would also be (very) good if Mike Ashley sells up quickly and is willing to lose big money on the sale of Newcastle – presumably he can take a tax write-off on the loss.
He will leave behind a shell of a club after his nine years demolition job, and Newcastle is not worth much these days.
Not in terms of money anyway.
But there again that’s all Mike thinks of.
I’ll leave it at that for now.
