Oh No – More Bad News On The Injury Front For Newcastle

Some additional bad news on Newcaste’s injury front today.

We already have 10 first-team players injured and the Telegraph (Luke Edwards) is now reporting that Callum Wilson’s hamstring injury could keep him out of the side for 6 weeks – that’s until the end of the year, and we still have 10 games to play.

And Sven Botman’s knee injury has not responded to treatment, and that could mean an operation is needed which will keep him out an additional 3 months.

He picked up his knee in jury was back in August.

This is not good news for Newcastle.

And something we haven’t heard before is that Newcastle talisman Sean Longstaff has a swollen ankle, and is now a doubt for our next game at home to Chelsea on Saturday, November 25th.

We do know that Alexander Isak should be fit for our next game and that Harvey Baranes is close to be able o play for Newcastle again.

The other good news is that Almiron only has a grade one tear of his right hamstring, so that should take two to three weeks to heal.

But the 10 games we have until the end of the year could negatively affect both our League Cup and Premier League situation.

We’re quite sure the owners are working to bring in new players – hopefully early in January – and we need around four players who can come in and produce the goods very quickly at Newcastle.

It’s much like the situation two years ago when we were fighting relegation.

Now we are trying to win the League (Carabao) Cup and finish in the top four in the Premier Leage, for the second season running.

But this is not good news today.

    £20 to keep me locked up? Pfft!

    I’ve know people, very good friends, who’ll pay more than that! Be prepared for a bidding war.

    Now young fella and I trust you’re well.

    To answer your question, no, I’m not longest serving poster and a few current posters I remember from the 2009s include Jail [Jail, what name were you posting under back then?], CLiNT, Bettyswollkcks and more whose names escape me.

    Cheers lads.

    Only just seen the messages, damn time zone.

    I recognise a few names for sure but my memory for names and numbers is horrendous.

    There was actually another Robbie Bobson that stole my name but no idea how long he was around.

    Either way it’s good to be back and chatting to people who don’t just want to abuse everyone and talk about Pessi and Penaldo.

    Kids man
