Report – Star Defender Ruled Out For Up To Three Months


Newcastle skipper Jamaal Lascelles has been ruled out for up to three months due to the knee injury he suffered against Bournemouth. This information comes from a report in the Sun.

The report says that scans show Lascelles has suffered some ligament damage to his knee. This is terrible news for the Newcastle captain, who just turned 26 years old yesterday. Lascelles has been an ever-present member of Newcastle’s squad since being handed the captain’s armband in the summer of 2016.

Jamaal suffered the injury in the first few minutes against Bournemouth when Callum Wilson gave him a shove that sent him barreling into Martin Dubravka. Lascelles continued on but was forced off after 20 minutes. In retrospect, it may have been unwise for Jamaal to continue playing, but as they say, hindsight is 20/20.

If there is a silver lining, it is that Newcastle have Florian Lejeune due to return from a long spell out with his own knee injury. Also, Fabian Schar’s knee problem that has kept him out for the past three weeks is not thought to be too serious.

For the time being, Newcastle are down to Federico Fernandez, Ciaran Clark, and Paul Dummett as their only fit center-backs. However, that should not be for too long as Lejeune and Schar should be close to a return.

    Another ACL injury?

    That’s Lejeune x2, Sean Longstaff and now Lascelles.

    Bit of a worrying trend, where all our players whose name begins with ‘L’ end up with the same injury.

    In a perverse sort of way it solves a selection problem
    for Bruce.
    With Florian L and Fabian S coming back into the reckoning

    On Topic:
    This is where the non purple policy kicks in, Lejuene becomes the one to make up Lascelles miss. Dummet should be still on the naughty step if whatever he done to get him there in the first place hasn’t been overlooked by his performance on Saturday? OR did Dummet do enough to keep Schar and Lejuene sweating for a place. However, back to the “purple policy” who is purple amongst our CB’s Schar who, so far is leaving at the end of this season and will need 100K a week to stay, or Fernandez who’s goals and performance will maybe tempt another club to offer him a three year deal or Clark who also is available to speak to other clubs?
    Shall the same set of brains that brought in Mbwia, Santon, Jaanmat and Krafth. Ok Willems without a buy out clause, who the foot is running this show now Rafa has gone?

    Although it’s not ideal we will actually be stronger without lascelles in my opinion as the others are better players. Clarke has been doing most of the talking in the pre match huddle so from a leadership perspective we should be covered.

    On Ginola there is no way in a million years Robert gets near him and that for me is one of the worst shouts on this blog.

    Toon there is no way you even know who Ginola is so please don’t comment on these matters and leave the football discussion to the adults.

    Atkinson is and always has been an appalling ref. Disgracefully not booking wilson for taking out our captain and keeper. Mind you atkinson still played on when de jong scissor kicked HBA

    Watched long highlights recorded off Sky. Wonder what would have happened if the shoulder charge into Joelinton’s ribs had been by Shelvey, Hayden (or Mitro for that matter) on one of theirs? Doubtless would have been discussed at length on MoD with Murphy or Jenas putting the boot in and pushing for a retrospective ban.

    Harry Wilson is a Liverpool loanee isn’t he? Just the sort of attacking midfielder we lack. Unlikely to get much of a look in at Anfield given their current squad. Wonder what sort of fee he would command?

    Rob, you ask why I bother re rafa? Because I believe in a balanced approach to analysing what he or any other manager does. And because whilst his contribution was great, i wont tolerate guys not listening to other fairly put opinions that I feel give a more full picture of his time here. Maybe you should ask Jail to comment negatively on rafa to test if he can say anything not remotely 100% positive because clearly he doesnt seem capable of doing that. And only in jails fixated world can a guy not be allowed to say negative stuff on benitez, and still want him here , long term funded, as I said so many times. Like I said, the man is fixated and now hates the new manager because he is not the old manager. Oddball.

    Did the PGMOB not come out after the Son red card and say he was sent off for the injury caused to the player, regardless of the severity of the challenge itself?

    I wonder if they will similarly come out and say anything in regards to Wilson as that was as clear an example of wanting to cause harm to an opponent as I can remember. Clearly pushing Jamaal in the back was not a genuine attempt to win the ball.

    Shame it was nice, little Bournemouth. Had the roles been reversed as Jasper alluded to, the witch hunt would be in full flow.

    Munster, I was replying to Hail wor Ashley who suggested that he felt compelled to bring us down to earth re Rafa.

    I don’t get it, he’s gone but was great for us while he was here. Why the desperate desire to tell us he wasn’t as good as ninety percent of us think he was?

    It’s frankly a bit dull.

    I now have two negative comments about Rafa

    1) (this is a repeat) the way he said ‘come on Toons’ on his personal blog was a bit odd.

    2) his hair was rubbish.

    There, I’ve said it.

    Sorensen has had a shot on target, the only one of the match so far.

    He needs to take this chance and force his way into the squad for every game

    callum wilson is very lucky that a free kick was given for that push or he would be looking at time out retrospectively for that so f@cking blatant, cowardly and dangerous.

    Munster,
    Despite my faith in Rafa’s rotation policy and my desire to see us win a cup, I did criticise his changing four of our regular starters against fourth placed bottom Blackburn who hadn’t won in seven games, we had a quarter final against ”ull the following Wednesday and had Mbemba in central defence who everyone said Rafa was a mug for not playing him again, a former Athletico Madrid defender and a bloke a lot on here swore should have been starting every game called Mitro who done foot all.

    Munster, if you’re fair and balanced then you should be comparing Bruce to pards, mcClaren, Houghton and Rafa … I’m not sure what this fixation with Rafa is by everyone on here – he’s gone , had a totally different front line , teams such as spurs were a whole different kettle of fish last season to this … The only comparison should be to what other EPL managers are doing this season with regards to tactics etc

    Don’t think anyone “hates’ Steve Bruce .They hate what he represents in that he was charnleys choice as was maclaren .and there fore part of the bigger regime and part of the Ashley head coach say nothing to rock the boat strategy .
    Just a lot of fans thought we had turned a corner with rafa as someone who reunited the fan base the city and the club from the rotten vessel it was when he arrived.
    Just a look at the crowds and atmosphere this season says everything.
    whatever anyone thinks of rafa or tries to re write what he did here him going many still see as the one opportunity in the whole time ashley has owned us to have really become a force again.
    Just seeing the way the evertons’, spurs and man utd have gone this season makes it more depressing as we could have usurped them had we kept rafa and his team with rondon .
    imagine a front three with miggy asm and rondon finishing all these chances and Joelinton being brought through gradually ?

    It’s like everyone is talking like we thrashed Bournemouth – we were lucky to go in at halftime 1-1 , they were all over us , 2nd half wasn’t that much different but we got the goal and then had a few counter attacks as they pushed players forward as they tried to equalise , as ever we were hanging on at the end – we had 33% possession at home to a mid to lower mid team , they played much better passing football than us as we reverted to hoofing upfield yet again to poor Linton who was as usual outnumbered … I think the fast pace of asm and miggy may have blinded some people’s version of the truth

    Colback will refuse to go – last season of contract, he can move on a free and pick himself up a nice few million quid as signing on fee – did the same with us.
