Young Magpie Sees Specialist As Concussion Symptoms Continue



Lucas de Bolle has still made just one appearance for Hamilton during his loan spell. The midfielder continues to suffer from blurred vision after sustaining a concussion with the Newcastle U21s before his loan move in August.

The symptoms cleared up allowing for his debut against Queens Park on September 17th. De Bolle came on as a second-half substitute for a 20-minute run-out in the 2-0 defeat.

The 20-year-old then linked up with the Scotland U21s for the September international break. It was during this period that Lucas’s blurred vision returned. He hasn’t been available for Hamilton since.

Things were looking up late last month as De Bolle was reportedly close to a return to training. However, he’s gone to see a specialist in London this week according to a report in The Daily Record. Thankfully, a recent scan has not revealed any serious issues.

Accies boss John Rankin provided the following on de Bolle’s scan:

“Lucas got an MRI scan on Tuesday. It is something with his vestibula system and the ear sending messages to the brain. That is the explanation I have.

“He is a lot more comfortable with that now than he was before.

“Hopefully he is not too far away. He had to go to London to get the MRI and see a physio who specializes in this sort of thing.

“As far as we are aware Lucas’ scan was clear and he was back at Newcastle on Wednesday morning.

“So, hopefully, he can progress from there and be back involved very soon.

“He’s not trained in a while so he will still be a wee bit away in terms of fitness.”

This situation has turned into a nightmare for the young midfielder. His lingering concussion symptoms has kept him off the pitch for basically three months now. Hopefully, with the scan coming back clear, Lucas is on the road to a full recovery.

    I want Ronaldo to get sent off conceding a penalty that puts Portugal out of the World Cup and then cry. Does that make me a bad person?

    TDS,

    All of that but also, he snaps an ankle in the challenge that gets him a red and he has to be stretchered off. Only for Ten Hag to show up and flip the stretcher over, and then moonwalk off the pitch.

    I hate Man Utd, but I detest Ronaldo.

    The Americans are just like Ashley but maybe even on another level because they seem to be able to strike good sponsorship etc

    It feels like this whole we are up for sale is nothing more than a ruse to settle the natives allowing for a minimum spend in January

    My heart bleeds for Manure followers, Boo Hoo, look at us , we are on the decline.
    Only worth 3.5B with players most clubs would of died for over the years yet their fans are moaning as though they`ve had a rough ride.
    Try being a fan of any of the north east teams and you will know what true loyalty is following clubs that have won nowt , and have been fed scraps over decades, where getting promotion to the top lge has been a highlight of following your team.
    Its no wonder i cant stand the glory hunting plastic fans of clubs like Manure, and it wouldn`t surprise me one bit if they start buying tickets to follow the awakened giant that is Newcastle United, and unfortunately for some of us, we will be edged out of watching our beloved Toon.

    And i second all of the above comments and then some.

    Wishing players to have fractured bones is utterly disgraceful – but any nastiness (and hate) from leftoid loons goes with the territory.

    Dazzler – gotta admit that I wouldn’t mind a nasty an injury to him either. He’s a PoS human being and no longer a great footballer. I hope he disappears from the limelight very soon but we’ll probably be seeing “Ronaldo” footwear. clothing, and aftershave for years to come…

    TDS – I have never understood the who fragrance thing, I don’t want to smell like a retired footballer! It is not as if they even care what it smells like, some perfume maker hands them a sample, they sniff it and say “yeah, that will do.”

    I must admit that I struggle to imagine what the lives of some people on this blog must be like. I know we all have different lives but even if mine isn’t similar to yours, I bet I have a friend with a similar background to yours so at least I know where you’re coming from. EXCEPT people like Mister Tuff. I can’t imagine what his life is like, I just can’t…

    Taco – I don’t get it either but I’ve never understood celebrity endorsements for things that aren’t their chosen field. I mean, I’ll accept Ronaldo endorsing football boots, sports clothing, footballs, maybe certain exercise regimes, diets, or physio plans but aftershave? You’re right…why would I want to smell like Ronaldo? He’s a much better footballer than me and he’s stinking rich but I don’t want to smell like him or be like him. And he’s a c**t.

    Munster – I’ve heard people call him an old man but never knew whether that was fact or just a guess. He strikes me more like a loser virgin in his Mum’s basement but I suppose he could be a 70 year old loser virgin in his Mum’s basement…

    Tuff,

    I may hate Ronaldo and wouldn’t mind seeing him snapped in a footy match. But that’s one man, and a detestable one at that.

    You hate dinghies full of women and children fleeing war torn lands for safety and security, and wish to see them suffer so I am satisfied I am on the right side of history on this one 😉
