Newcastle Star Player Thinks Premier League Season Has To Finish

Slovakian newspaper Sport has interviewed top Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka as he continues to receive treatment for the knee injury he picked up in our last game – when we took Southampton apart 1-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium.


In truth, it was a tough game with Allan Saint-Maximin scoring the late winner in grand style.

Martin was going to be out for up to four weeks, but with the coronavirus pandemic seeming to get more dangerous by the day, he will be fit before there’s any more football played in England.

Dubravka has been one of Newcastle’s best players since he signed on loan for us two years ago, but now he is the permanent Newcastle number one, and he cost only £4M from Sparta Prague.

It seems he is one of Newcastle’s best ever signings.

This is what the 24 times capped Slovakian International (shown above) has said to Sport:

“Indeed, we have a long time without football. Players aren’t used to playing in front of an empty auditorium.”

“I have experienced half-empty grandstands in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, so it wouldn’t be such a novelty for me.” 

“We’ll see how to set up the rules (for finishing the season). I think that the season will finish, as the loss of television rights would be huge.”

“I just don’t know when it will be. But probably not in June.”

“Every day it gets better (his knee injury). On Monday I passed the first lighter run. “

“On Tuesday I was supposed to have my first training on the pitch, but I had to change plans for stricter measures in England.” 

“It will be even harder than ever. Everything is closing, only food and pharmacy will be open. “

“We must no longer meet anyone in the physio team in order not to spread the disease. Everything is over the phone.”

The coronavirus pandemic continues to be rampant, and here in the US, the number of deaths from it has doubled over the last two days to 2,000.

North Carolina is in lock-down, and we have to hope people will stay at home and be safe.

This is a test for everybody, and we have to try to help each other whenever possible in these dire times.

As far as the Premier League finishing this season, I just don’t see it – but my son Neil is still hopeful.

Stay safe.

    This season will finish next year.

    We’ll miss the 2020/21 season, it won’t happen.

    There won’t be time to finish this one and by the time they give the all clear there won’t be enough time to start a new one.

    FA cup and league will resume in the winter after a little pre season. They’ll probably start the league cup 20/21 aswell to fill more weekends.

    Said this weeks ago and I still believe that’s what will happen.

    They’re still saying 12 week lock down is what is required.

    OLG……… From last night; Of course I realise your Fred Dibnah comment was said tongue in cheek as was my reply to you. No problems there mush.

    I also realise that you enjoy coming on here to do a bit of baiting. I would go as far as to say you’re a Master at it!

    I sincerely hope that this season does come to its full conclusion

    It’s morally just for all the teams that it is concluded and the relevant promotions and relegations do in fact happen!

    I for one feel very much for South Shields and the position they find themselves in through no fault of their own!!!

    The people like Karen Brady only want one conclusion because it would ensure they get another crack of the whip!

    Should say a big thanks to Dr Ed, Neil & “The Wife” for all the sterling work they do at a very difficult time for eveyone.

    I had a letter last week advising/telling me to stay at home for the next twelve weeks due to my respiratory issues and age etc. So any NUFC news is most welcome as far as I’m concerned!
