Injury updates re Joey and Ireland and a bit of transfer speculation

March 8th, 2011 | 4 Comments |

Not coming to the Toon IMHO
Jermainne Lens? Nah!
Some injury news about Joey and Stephen Ireland. A complete lack of injury news about Jonas. Oh, and more transfer speculation.

There isn’t a huge amount of news around this morning and I can’t do my thinking posts until I’ve had least 2 meals, so I thought I’d sum up bits of this and that

There’s good and bad news on the injury front.

Joey and Stephen Ireland look good for Stoke but Jose seems to be a doubt. Pardew said:

Ireland trained Thursday, and looked like he was going to be OK, and then got the thigh injury which kept him out of training on Friday.

Joey actually trained Friday thinking that he’d be OK, but again didn’t feel quite right.

I don’t think there’ll be a problem for Joey and Stephen against Stoke.

We’ll wait and see with Jose. He’s a key player for us, and that injury affected us more than any other one.

I know Joey’s had issues in the past and we’ve sometimes given him some grief, but two names I like to see on the team sheet are Barton and Tiote. It kind of gives me that extra boost of confidence as we go into a game. (more…)
