Liam Gibson Has Picked Up An Injury In Pre-Season Action At Scarborough



Newcastle left-back Liam Gibson who is on loan at Grimsby Town has picked up a knock in his third game of pre-season action for the Mariners. He started the game but had to be removed after just four minutes due to an injury.

There is no word on how serious the injury is or if Liam was just removed as a precaution.

The Chronicle put out an interview from the Grimsby Telegraph with Gibson this morning. The interview is from last week and was when he had arrived at Grimsby town.

This is what Liam Gibson said about his arrival at Grimsby:

“I can’t wait. I came down on Tuesday and then met the lads the following day, and I feel like I’ve settled in already,” he told Grimsby Live.

“Everyone’s made me feel very welcome, so I’m really pleased to be here.

“I really want to kick on now and forget everything that’s happened in the past. I’m just hoping to get a good few games under my belt this season.

“In the past, I’ve always been worried about my health and whether I’d go downhill again, and worried about being laid up in bed ill.

“Now everything’s sorted, I can just focus fully on my football, and that can only be a positive thing for me, and hopefully I can have a good season with Grimsby.

“Since I left Accrington and went back to Newcastle, I always knew I’d be trying to get back out on loan again.

“I’m glad I’ve managed to get something sorted this summer rather than January as I think it gives you a bit more time to find your feet, rather than going straight in without getting to know the lads, the manager and all the staff.

“I had a good conversation with him, and he showed me round the training ground and stadium.

“He just told me what he expects from me and how I was going to fit into the team, so the talks are very positive, and it confirmed that it was a good decision to move here.

“The manager was saying that he wants to be in and around at least the Play-Offs come the end of the season, and I honestly think that can be achieved.”

Last week Liam completed his first 45 minutes of action in the Lincolnshire Senior Cup at Gainsborough Trinity.

He then made his first start for Grimsby Town in the Mariners’ 1-0 win at home against Doncaster this past Friday. He was able to play for 56 minutes before being replaced.

We hope today’s knock is nothing more than that and is not another setback for the youngster as he has had enough of those already in his short career.

    Gayle to be moved on hopefully and the money put back in wisely. Our wage bill is set to jump quite significantly.

    He must be a real star if he’s being scouted by a championship manager.

    He signed a 6 year deal for Ashleys Nufc, Joelintons only ambition will be to leave asap.

    Canny though, he’ll double his effort by xmas once reality kicks in.

    Why can’t I get excited about this? Does Mitrovich ring a bell. We had Wijnaldum, Sissoko and Mitro with a second rate manager to placate their ego’s and tell them not to worry and a big club will come in. We have just made a record signing for a guy whose agent, team mate and club have stated he will get better, this is just a step. Like Sissoko etc he’ll walk in to that dressing room talking about a move to Man U, Spurs etc and it will get us relegated, mark my words. Rafa tried to break that cycle, the wheel has started turning again.

    So,,,,

    Ashley couldn’t give a flying about what the supporters think and he’s a tight arse full stop.

    or

    Ashley has only spent £40M to fool us into buying ST’s.

    or…

    It’s not Ashley’s money he must have something evil up his sleeve.

    Or, how about…

    We’ve stayed in the Prem for two seasons, rebalanced the books after relegation and talk of a £50M transfer budget + money from sales is available as rumoured in the deal offered to Rafa.

    Think I’ll go with the last one.

    Hopefully more signings to follow.

    The relegation caused by Ashleys mismanagement of the club whilst doubling its debt and pretending we’re making profit.

    Thirdly, we should not be distracted by this signing. It is a sticking plaster to treat an amputation scar. The club is still rotten, we have replaced our World class manager with someone who means well but is not considered in the same class.

    Ashley continues to treat this club like a personal advertising hoarding. His lack of communication on key issues with not only his fee-paying fans but also his key employees is nothing short of negligent. His refusal to allow the club to fulfill its potential means that in real terms we’ve been in recession for 12 years and now struggle to compete with Brighton, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, where before he came we were rubbing shoulders with Man U, Liverpool and Arsenal, regularly seeing off Spurs on and off the pitch.

    This is a sign that the pressure is getting to the club. People are looking round, saying “what’s happened, Ashley’s never done this before”. The thing that has changed is that the fans are getting organised and motivated, the politicians and the media are starting to pay attention to his lack of care. He’s feeling the effects of our actions and the club is starting to react.

    This is not the time to start buying season tickets again. This is not the time to pledge your support to ‘the team, not the regime’.

    This is the time to say ‘fine, thanks, but what next?’ Be demanding, be stubborn and be strong. Don’t be bought off at the first go around. Joelinton is not the answer, he’s just the beginning of the question. If he can be bought for Bruce, then why could we not do the same for Rafa? That’s what we should be asking.

    What comes next? That’s what we should be asking, too. We need Ashley to realise that he has two choices – run the club properly or sell it to someone who can. He won’t want to do the former as it conflicts with his main agenda in Sports Direct, so he’ll be forced to do the latter.

    Don’t give in lads and lasses. We’ve won a battle, not the war. Keep your eyes on the main prize at the top of the tree and don’t be distracted by the shiny new bauble dangling on the lowest branch. Gird your loins and carry on.

    I’m not looking back…living in the present with more knowledge via experience. not sure what you see is changing, and with bruce…exactly. no one else would come here because it continues to be the same. I admire all those that continue to have optimism, but I dont. dont think that makes me miserable just realistic. is anyone, other than catchy, happy with bruce as manager?

    Hiya, Boycott Arsenal. You may be entirely right that our latest signing is a loud mouth obnoxious shit who will destroy team morale by pissing off the whole changing room with his soaring ambition to leave NUFC for higher things.

    On the other hand, you really don’t know anything at all about him, do you?

    Good luck with your positivity, it must be a joy and marvellous having you for company.

    I’d agree Jail. I can believe we’ll spend when we have it, but I don’t think we’ll ever spend well enough to achieve anything significant. The same old problems likely still exist, made worse without Rafa doing his thing to make up for it. With Rafa, I could see us lower top 10 under Ashley, with Bruce, safe, but bottom half.

    Ashley would never in a million years spend that amount without an extremely good reason either season ticket bait or the money has come from the hedge fund..
    It shows how fickle the supporters are they change direction like the wind…

    you cant equate 12 years of MA and thinking the worse, cause well it’s been bad, as being miserable in everything. I think everyone want the club to do well but you need ambition and MA has none.

    Errrrrrr…

    So NUFC are the only club in the Prem that players see as a stepping stone?

    What a load of tosh.

    Football is a short career and any top player worth his salt wants the really big money that only teams regularly in the Champs can pay + they want to medals to their name.

    The Thai owner was loved at Leicester but the only top player who didn’t want to leave after the title win was Vardy.

    Saying Ashley turned us into a feeder club is hogwash.

    Suddick, Supermac, Kennedy, McDermott, Beardsley, Gascoigne, Waddle, Cole …

    All were sold before Ashley put a foot in the door.

    captainmarvel, I think we’re all treading a very narrow knife edge – one side is where we all want to be, positive and loyal to the club we love, behind the players and willing to give Bruce a chance to be successful. In our seats roaring the lads on to an opening day win. This is our romantic side, one we’ve always had to entertain as NUFC fans as the reality has always been too harsh.

    The other side is our realism, which says that Ashley has his boot on the throat of the club and until he removes it, the club will not be able to recover and thrive once more. This is the more difficult side to face as it means we have to take action, we have to do something to make a difference. We have to shake off our apathy and make a stand.

    We’re all torn between the two sides, and each one shows through at different times.

    Not seen this lad play but by all accounts our record signing may have a big future(with another club no doubt). The expectation on him to hit the ground running is huge and he can’t let the pressure get to him.
    I’m still pi##ed off that Rafa left and we’ve ended up with old cabbage heed, even more angry that the slug is still the owner.
    Hope the attendance for Arsenal is right down.
    Ashley will be thinking that today’s signing will make everything alright but he needs to realise that he isn’t in control but the supporters are.
    Boycott Arsenal
    Fat slug out.

    Sports, I’m sorry, I thought it was obvious what I see is changing. Over the last 12 years, how many times has skinflint MA smashed our signings record? The answer, obviously, is twice, both this year. You know this as well as I do, it’s not rocket science, so you must be blind if you can’t see this. I imagine you may not be actually blind so, to cut a Long story short, what are you on about, mate?

    For buyers of NUFC
    Caveat emptor

    Rangers could be forced to pay millions of pounds to Sports Direct following another courtroom defeat in a long-running dispute over merchandise.
    A judge ruled the company should have been given the chance to match a shirt deal struck with Elite/Hummel.
    Rangers terminated a merchandise agreement with Sports Direct last year, but the firm should have been given the chance to compete with new offers.
    The club said it would “meet any financial award made by the court”.
    Judge Lionel Persey QC ruled that the new deal with Elite/Hummel, thought to be worth £10m, breached the agreement which said Sports Direct was to be given the chance to compete with new offers.

    Bills “So NUFC are the only club in the Prem that players see as a stepping stone?”

    Nope, nobody ever said that. However, whether we were or not under Joe Harvey, Arthur Cox and all that came before them, we were not a stepping stone club under Keegan in the 90s and under Sir Bobby in the 2000s.

    We don’t need to be that kind of club, we can and will one day be a great club again who can attract the best talent in the World, not so they can earn a move to Arsenal or Spurs by coming, but because they think that by being here they can compete and win trophies or earn a place in their National team or otherwise achieve whatever their goals are.

    This will not, however, happen under Ashley, who simply does not share our ambition. Therefore, he should be encouraged to move aside and let someone else have a go.

    it’s not always about money. though I will say I’m quite suprised at this amount being spent. you have sign, keep players and build. even if joelinton is a hit I believe we will still be scrapping it out at the bottom and for me 12 years of that is enough.

    Bills, I haven’t noticed it, honestly – skimmed the posts trying to catch up, was busy this early evening.

    You don’t need or even want my protection. I said I thought you were the aggressor over the last couple of days. I daresay if you quit, he will also. I suspect that you’re actually just making a point by asking me.

    If not, I’ll point it out but I wouldn’t expect him to pay any attention to me.

    And here’s a thing…

    If you were a potential top player that could attract City, Lpool, Barcelona, Real down the line…

    Where would you rather go …

    Watford, Southampton, Burnley… or NUFC with 52,000 fans at every home game?

    The more quality stepping stone players we attract the more chance we’ve got of winning something, finishing in the top 6 and actually keeping some of them.

    I’m happy that players see us as a stepping stone.

    For exactly those reasons.
