The Newcastle injuries situation, when we’ll see these 10 players back training and playing:

Cheick Tiote – Picked up a bad knee injury at the African Cup of Nations and after an operation in Qatar, we won’t see him back playing (if at all…) at Newcastle until next season

Curtis Good – Injury nightmare continues and it will be next season at the earliest before he plays again, after breaking down following a recent reserve team comeback.

Facundo Ferreyra – After a claimed back injury, supposed to be back in training before the end of March – though we’ll believe it when we see it.

Massadio Haidara – Stretchered off with a knee problem against Aston Villa, fluid on the knee will prevent him playing against Manchester United but expected to be training again shortly and available for Everton on 15 March.

Paul Dummett – Another who won’t be back playing competitively until next season, having hurt his knee when appearing as a sub at Palace last month.

Remy Cabella – Will miss Manchester United with knee ligament problem but hoping to be back training at start of next week.

Rob Elliot – Back in training early next week after thigh injury.

Rolando Aarons – Carver says out for’ another 7-10 days’ which puts him back in training towards end of next week before the Everton match a week on Sunday.

Siem de Jong – A reoccurrence of his collapsed lung and subsequent operation means it will be next season before he is playing competitively.

Steven Taylor – Won’t play until next season after calf injury v Burnley on New Year’s Day

  • Maximus Moose

    Entire Clubs a shower of Shyte & ran on the lines of a Car Boot Sale

  • Seventy2

    6 out of 10 long term injuries and out for the season.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Out of contract players being ‘considered’.

    Where are all the Ashley disciples now who spouted off how good business it was to get rid of Santon, Mbiwa (and the loan players) while signing absolutely no one?

    Any ‘supporter’ out there who defends this regime is sadly in the same mental category as the deluded JC.

    By Newcastle Central Station I Sat Down and Wept (appologies to Elizabeth Smart)

  • supermacsnewname

    The point is not how many players are left standing – but how many of those are PL quality –
    I see only 7 – Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Fabricio Coloccini, Ryan Taylor, Moussa Sissoko, Ayoze Pérez; Papiss Demba Cissé
    of which I’m not sure all will end the match
    against manu !
    0-0 will be a major achievement
    quite honestly I’d rest all of them and play as many kids as possible – tell them to put on the black & white at SJP against manu and play their hearts out

  • Mackay

    are we so sure De Jong wont be back? 8 weeks he was reported out. That is mid April and then maybe back for 3 games in May, after training.

  • Sickandtiredstill

    Mackay De Jong puts his other injuries (hams and thigh) down to returning too quickly after his first lung collapse.
    Regardless of whether we should have bought the lad in the first place, I don’t think getting him back any quicker will do him any favours.

  • Demented_Man

    Sickandtiredstill They’ll just claim it’s down to the number of unlucky injuries.
    I know something: the more demoralised a squad is, the more injuries it has.
    Will Ashley get back the loanees from Rangers in irritation at his cronies being kicked off the board?  I think it’s possible.

  • Jarra MIck

    Probably safest if De Jong waits till the end of the decade to make his comeback,, eh just to be on the safe side, don’t want his leg falling off or something.
