Given – Newcastle Yet To See Real Damien Duff

Newcastle fans could be excused for forgetting about Damien Duff, our Irish International winger.

Duff has not featured at all since sustaining a foot injury just before the end of our 2-1 loss to Portsmouth in April.

Shay Given has talked about his Irish friend today and revealed Duff is desperate to rebuild his reputation at the club, following his £5M move from Chelsea last summer.

Thursday, October 4th, 2007 · 14 Comments

Sam Allardyce has talked today about Emre, our creative Turkish midfield player, who will be available for selection on Sunday against Everton. Like a number of players at Newcastle Emre’s problem has been injuries in the 2 seasons he’s been at the club.

Yesterday, Emre talked about his willingness to fight for his place at Newcastle this season and we’re impressed with the way players freely admit they are not guaranteed a starting place at Newcastle.

Sam talked today about Emre and thinks he can be a key player for Newcastle this season.

Sam Sending Strange Signals About Owen

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007 · 11 Comments

Sam Allardyce is rightly saying that Newcastle United and the Newcastle medical team will be the ones to decide when Michael Owen is fit and whether he’ll be fit enough to play for England.

But last weekend Sam was also saying that Michael would be back in training in a few days and may play this Sunday which raised hopes unrealistically about Michael’s fitness.

Seems to us Sam may be confusing things.

As we reported earlier today Emre, Faye and Enrique all had full games last night playing for the reserves at Manchester City last night . They will all be that much better for it. Joey Barton also had a good 45 minutes last night and seemed just raring to go in this morning’s interview.

Emre talked to Newcastle World TV today and made it clear he wants to be in the first team and is only too willing to fight for his place. Let’s see what Emre had to say – he comes across very positively.

Joey Barton Misses Just One More Game

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007 · 5 Comments

Sma Allardyce’s £5.8M summer signing played a full 45 minutes for the Reserves in their 2-2 draw with his his former club Man City on Tuesday night.

Joey had said last weekend he may be able to make the Everton game but Big Sam countered that by saying it will be 3-4 weeks before Joey is back fully.

But Joey says he understands Big Sam’s reticence to throw him straight back into first-team action too early – but it looks like he’ll be missing just one more game before he’s back – the game at Everton on Sunday. Good news indeed.
