Newcastle Player – I’m Gutted

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014 · 9 Comments

We feel for Curtis Good as he has been cut from the Australia squad for the World Cup, because he simply has not fully recovered from the hip injury he sustained on March 5th, when he made his debut for Australia against Ecuador, and had a great game – a fantastic game according to Australia’s Greek manager Ange Postecoglou, who has been the country’s most successful club coach.

Loic Remy has said that he was not injured for the last game of the season at Liverpool on May 11th, when he was surprisingly not in the Newcastle squad, and we all thought he must have been injured, but he wasn’t, and he simply didn’t want to play in a game that he said meant nothing, and he didn’t want to risk getting injured and miss the World Cup.
