Shock News – Star Player Shows Unbelievable Commitment And Courage

Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles is to undergo hernia surgery immediately, with the surprising news that the captain has been playing since late last year though the pain barrier.

Jamaal has had a few poor games lately and it seems it’s time to take him out of the firing line, now that we are promoted and get the problem fixed once and for all.

You cannot ever accuse Jamaal of not having tremendous courage and he’s been criticized lately for some poor performances.

But we now should probably tamp down those criticisms with the manager Rafa Benitez asking the captain to play through the pain barrier for the good of the side.

Has shown unbelievable courage since late last year

The report is that Rafa wanted to keep Jamaal’s injury quiet, so not many people knew of the problem, but of course the club’s medics were well aware of the situation.

The Sun are reporting the former Nottingham Forest captain is now going to have a double hernia operation, which he needs immediately.

And it’s because the team is now finally promoted – how’s that for commitment to the team from the young captain?

Whether you like Jamaal as a player or not you have to admire the youngster for his courage – he’ll do anything for Rafa and anything for the team.

Maybe that’s why he’s the captain?

As soon as Newcastle got their automatic promotion spot early last week, the Derby-born player  is reported to have gone to see a specialist and the result was the injury needed to be operated on quickly.

The surgeon was said to be shocked that Jamaal had been playing through what he considered an injury that needed immediate attention.

Lascelles has now played his last game of the season for us and let’s hope we can pip Brighton for the title on Sunday afternoon – that would be the icing on the cake for the happy Newcastle fans.

But whatever happens our lads, guided so magnificently by Rafa Benitez, have got an extremely difficult job done this season  and all credit has to go to them.

They have been magnificent in what has turned out to be a very difficult, very tough and very trying season.

I’m exhausted!

And Jamaal deserves a medal.

The 6ft 2 ins centre-back made an impressive 47 appearances for the team this season with 3 goals and his center-back partner Ciaran Clark has also been very impressive.

Jamaal also made the PFA Championship Team of the Year along with Jonjo Shelvey and Dwight Gayle.

The fact the lad has been playing in pain since late last year has clearly shown what a courageous young player Jamaal is and that he is completely committed and dedicated to the cause of Newcastle United.

After last season’s horrors with Steve McClaren (my arm just start to hurt me again) we needed some heroes.

This season we have got them.

The good news is that Newcastle  captain is expected to be fully fit before the start of pre-season on Monday July 3rd.

It’s such an uplifting story about the Newcastle captain and of course he has to be at St. James’ Park for the celebrations on Sunday.

Please give him an extra cheer and  a hug from us.

We feel better already this morning after having a bit of a difficult day yesterday.


Howay The Lads!!

    That is some commitment a proper captain!!

    It does make sense about his form as in the first half of the season he was playing very well possibly the injury affected his movements which is why he seemed to get caught out a lot in the second half of the season!

    Said it yesterday but compare this to Nolan who had every Christmas off through suspension and Colo who magically got injured every time he wanted a jolly back to Argentina

    Recently had 3 hernia ops! Very painful and also very hard to do physical exercise, running, anything that was strenuous!
    Mind, wish I’d taken a pic after the biggest op- was all black and swollen!

    Apparently Brighton had all sorts planned for the last weekend, after winning the title- open top bus parade, civic reception, party, party, party – all on ice! Shame!

    Hughton looked raging during the whole game !

    Kind of love that their party was trashed and would love us to trash it again this weekend!! Would also be amazing for Villa to help us win the league ha ha

    One of partner’s family lives in Brighton!
    Reckons a week of celebrations, advertised, had to be cancelled!
    Steve Sidwell saying it put a dampener on their promotion, missing out on winning the title, at home, record crowd and all.
    Let’s hope they’ve blown it!
