News has come in from Newcastle United’s official website that Tyneside’s messiest hitman, Shola Ameobi, will definitely be returning to training next week after the big lump went and knacked his foot while getting into the swing of what could have been the most prolific scoring period of his career so far.

Chris Hughton announced in slightly more diplomatic terms:

“Shola will train with the reserves on Monday before joining in with the rest of the squad on Tuesday after Preston.

“He has made good progress and we’re delighted to welcome him back. It was disappointing for Shola to miss out after the start he had.

“But he’ll be looking to get back to that level and we certainly hope he can because he was excellent for us during those first few weeks.”

Guti’s thigh.

On Gutierrez, who picked up a thigh strain in Newcastle’s 3-1 win over Peterborough and was slightly doubtful, Hughton commented:

“Jonas is fine and will be in the squad. It was a minor problem he had but we’re happy he’s OK now.”

  1. Been out a while, lets hope he can get up to speed quickly as i guess we are gonna lose him for a while.
    He was on a decent run prior to his injury, nice if he can pick up where he left off, we need someone who can score.
    What does it say about the team when Nolan is our top goalgetter.
     
     

  2. Notice the constant use of the term, which I recall as “radgey”, meaning ragged or dirty, have I got that right ? something you would`nt want to touch.
    Seems at least according to these blogs to have a new life and meaning  curious,  is this something in general  on Tyneside or are people resorting to old time Geordie speak only here?

  3. At last – the 3rd international break is over! They’re seriously breaking up a season, one that surprisingly I’m enjoying more than anticipated. I still have a slightly depressed edge about it all though – Doncaster, Peterborough etc and the quality is so low. Think Beardsley, Cole, young Dyer running fast with the ball towards Solano. And strikers (what strikers?). Carrol, Shola, Ranger, Lovenkrands have 9 goals between them – pitiful!! Where’s the £20m going to come from or do we wait for Spear?

  4. To me a radgie, was someone who was a proper man mental. Sometimes know as a radge packet.
    Although I may have made radge packet up, I’m not sure.
    Anyway, being radged up or a radgie usually meant someone who was really upset and angry to a point where no one could reason with them.

  5. MT – a ‘radgie’ is indeed as you described and so far as I know, is what worky is inferring.

    Hence you and I being ‘Keegan radgies’.

    Micky, I used to think of it the way you defined it at the end, but I think it covers the whole spectrum now, from someone who’s a little eccentric, or who’s got drunk, fallen over, blown £1000 on the horses etc, to someone who’s locked up in a padded cell in Broadmoor.

    You haven’t made up “radge packet”, it’s very common. It’s someone who’s a packet of pure, 100% radgieness.

    My dad was a superb example of the classic ‘radgie gadgie’ (bless him). One of those little old fellas who are always getting angry in the newspapers railing about the state of this and that and campaigning against the council etc. He once got so hacked off with his car breaking down that he drove it through the window of a London Mercedes Benz dealer with a load of reporters from all over the place in tow and the bizzies on his tail. The tv footage of the incident is on ‘Not the Nine o’ Clock News’ somewhere with a punchline something like “The world’s first drive-in opticians was opened today…”

    What a radgie!

  7. Hmmm! seems  my ancient memory of the term was translated into disgusting, could it be the meaning has changed over time , or perhaps different areas of Tyneside translate it differently ?
    In any case  i do know the term Gadgie, meaning someone past middle age.
    It seems your old  man(WORKEY was ( using your translation)
    A real radgie gadgie, love that story,  just remember,  in most cases the apple does`nt fall far from the tree.
