Saint-Maximin And Lascelles ‘Feeling’ Great In Funny Twitter Exchange


Allan Saint-Maximin returned to training this week from the hamstring injury that forced him to miss the last eight matches in all competitions.

Apparently, his hamstring is feeling just fine as he’s tweeted the following clip.

Jamaal Lascelles, who made his return tonight in our FA Cup win, has responded in kind to Allan’s tweet.

We would guess that the mood is pretty good right now in the Newcastle ranks after advancing to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup.

It’s also great that both Allan and Jamaal have recovered from their lengthy spells on the sideline.

It was a bit of a surprise to see the captain back in tonight from the start. Steve Bruce said during his press conference on Monday that Jamaal would make the squad.

But he ended up getting in a good 56 minutes in what is his 150th appearance for the club. This is what Jamaal said about his return to the pitch on Twitter.

With Allan having a muscle injury, we doubt Bruce will give him a start when he returns. Allan is likely to be eased back into action with a few substitute appearances to begin with.

Whether that will be this weekend against Chelsea is anyone’s guess. The most important thing is to keep Allan fit for the remainder of this season and what could end up being a cup run.

    You just know that ASM was THAT kid in school, the one that all the kids loved and all the teachers hated!

    😀

    kilcline from previous, the Longstaffs are a natural fit in midfield, they just work well together. They’re both young and they make mistakes, but it’s rarely in a place where it hurts us.

    They are the players that my kids most identify with – the local lads done good. My missus went to John Spence where they went, I know a coach at North Shields Juniors who speaks to them from time to time when they pop in, they go to the Whitley Warriors to support their Dad so they’re just around and about, visible and grounded, as well as being talented footballers.

    They’ll be the heroes of my kids’ generation, and that’s fine by me.

    Don’t you just love a fully fit Maxim on our left wing. Absolutely loved Joelinton going to the bench to celebrate his lal goal. He’s no no9 but he’ll get there. Love the spirit. I gave Ritchie MIoN great to se him back. Onwards n upwards

    I mostly agree with you there, regarding ASM. He seems like the kind of kid that teachers felt obligated to lecture when disrupting the class, but secretly smiled at his antics lol
