This Is Surprisingly Good News For Newcastle

There is a report in the Daily Mail that Jonjo Shelvey is likely to return to training this week and he could be available for our crucial game against Southampton at home this Saturday afternoon.

Jonjo injured his knee during the second half of the game at Bournemouth on February 24th when we threw away a 2-0 lead with 10 minutes to go and only got a single point for the 2-2 draw.

Jonjo was anxious to train last week but the Newcastle’s top medic – Dr. Paul Catterson – wanted to get more scans done before he would allow him to start training again.

The fact that Jonjo seemed to be in no pain last week was good news in itself, and we assume the scans on the knee have come back and show no damage.

The game against the Saints is a crucial one, and a draw isn’t good enough.

Jonjo will hopefully be able to come into that game on Saturday and play like he did against Manchester United.

If the team play as they did against the Red Devils, we should be able to get all 3 points, which is what we need.

Assuming the Mail report is accurate, this is surprisingly good news for Newcastle.

What do you think?

    No problem mate apologies if I offended you in anyway

    Magscar – this would be a boring blog if everyone had the same views. Very balanced view you have, I do believe we have a minority on here that are out for rafa’s blood and I’m certainly not in that category.

    My ideal situation is rafa keeps us up and Ashley sells quick in the summer, the latter is less likely

    I think kenedy has been a good signing, yes teams will double up on him bit that’s when he needs others to attack and get him the space. Not many players can handle a doubling up act
