Friday, August 22nd, 2014 · 2 Comments

Pardew Gives Injury Update – Tiote Almost Ready

Friday, August 22nd, 2014 · 34 Comments

Ryan Taylor is training at the moment and its non competitive according to Pardew, and that probably means it’s non contact right now, but Ryan is expected to resume full training in about three weeks time – and Newcastle are right to be very careful with Ryan’s comeback –  after what happened a year last April, when he was coming back from his first ACL knee injury and the knee went for a second time. :(
