Newcastle Defender Left Unconscious In Bar In Majorca

Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark was knocked out in a bar in Magaluf, reports a Majorcan local newspaper.

The Mirror have also reported today on the incident.

Ultima Hora is a newspaper covering Spain’s Balearic Islands, and today that article was published.

And it appears that Clark was attacked in the early hours of last Saturday morning while on vacation in Majorca.

He had been dancing and was alleged to have been pushed by a man whom he then argued with.

It was that same man who was alleged to have returned to the bar and punched Clark in the mouth and Ciaran was left unconscious.

Ciaran was then taken to hospital for treatment.

Clark’s alleged attacker was arrested but later released and will now have a court hearing next Monday.

Clark is reported to have been with friends at the bar.

There should be news today on Clark’s condition but the Newcastle; defender has said nothing about the incident so far – and likely wants to keep it that way.

    nufcadon, I tend to agree with you on Townsend. I know some are still annoyed he left, but I don’t think he took that decision lightly at the time and when he did make the decision it was done for the right reasons.

    That said, you would think he would only sign on with assurances over Rafa’s future seeing as it’s Rafa who got him back in the England squad and who would be the main reason for him returning to us.

    We are a SOLVENT football club

    Ask Ellis Short about buying players on the drip
    and giving them huge wages.
    Stewart Donald the new scum owner is worth
    £8.7M – some of Sunluns players are worth more than him !!

    We should be more concerned about our long term league position than our tax dividends.

    So despite Ashley doubling the debt and the club making apparent loses its solvent, as for better tax position claim I think I’ll wait see what the tax man has to say about that.

    You couldn’t max it up

    if he signs and has a good debut, all will be forgotten.

    At the time he wanted to remain in a premier league club to keep his England position. I don’t think you can blame the lad for that. Its not like he committed his future to us then left us in the lurch

    hibbit, I agree with you, walked away from the club, shows he has no passion or desire for the club. I don’t want him back.

    So the fat man has fallen foul of the taxman, lost a tribunal for constructive dismissal with a club legend, tried to sack a guy who saved the club from relegation for having an illness yet is so squeaky clean he wouldn’t dare breach the ridiculously flawed FFP rules, and we’re talking grown up stuff here. ha ha ha!!!

    We also need goals from midfield big time the amount of chances Richie, Murphy, Atsu, Shelvey , Perez and Kennedy missed at crucial times in games were criminal!

    Before Townsend joined us, there was a lot of negative talk on here about him.
    In reality, he played well for us. If others who had been at the club longer term had shown the same commitment, we would never have been relegated. We’ve got a few at the moment who won’t leave. They’re not loyal – they’re leeches.
    I don’t blame a player for leaving in order to continue playing at a higher level and to try and get in the England squad. It’s ambition and shows character. Isn’t that what we need?
    For me, the decision on whether he could return should surely be only a one related to footballing matters.

    Rumours about Townsend are nothing new. Why would Hodgson sell Townsend and bring in Antonio ? If Antonio’s deemed to be better then Townsend why don’t we sign him or is he another Lundun boy who gets vertigo outside the protective fence of the M25 ?

    If Townsend and Kennedy are available and both at £20m then surely the future is Kennedy or does Rafa want time served players rather than apprentices ?

    Or is the Townsend link just the old tactical diversion while we sign up Kennedy.

    Townsend didn’t stay to fight our way back from the Championship, Ritchie and the other lads did. I know who I’d want in the trenches next to me.

    I think if he has a stinker he will get boo’d a little but then when he plays well, all will be forgotten. The lad isn’t from the north east and unless you’re a fan of the club or from the area, you’re not going to show loyalty to the club and go down a league if doing that means you cannot play for your country and you risk your career.

    Its like asking a lad from up here to show loyalty to Swansea because they bought him a few months earlier, you will have to play in the championship, wont get to play for your country but can show loyalty…never going to happen.

    NUFCadon – Hodgson came out and categorically stated that dropping down a division would not jeopardise his England place and even he could see he was playing the best football of his career and with the best manager he was ever likely to play under. He could have risked it, it’s not like he was leaving for a team doing anything but fighting relegation.

    IMO Townsend left because he got arrogant, thought that his suddenly enormous talent had at last been discovered without considering it was down to Rafa’s coaching and the team playing to his strengths. He thought he could do it anywhere and the last two seasons have shown he is in fact a pretty average player. He has not developed and is certainly not worth 6 mill more than be sold him for or deserving of the adulation of the mighty Toon Army.
