Ameobi: Back in the picture.
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.” (more…)

“Important period” coming up, says Jonas.

The elusive mask

Newcastle United midfielder Jonas Guttierrez claims the international break will do us good ahead of an important period in our promotion push.

Jonas said:

We have 15 days to recover, to rest and to prepare for the rest of the season. From here to January is a very important period for us.”

To be honest I never understand this ‘important period’ stuff. If we lose too many games at any point in the season we’ll fail to get promoted, so as far as I can see every 3 points is as important as every other 3 points.

Only 9 points separate us in top place from Watford in 12th so all the top places are very much up for grabs. West Brom still look like our biggest threat but I reckon Cardiff, QPR and Leicester will all be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. I reckon Strachan will pull ‘Boro together too. (more…)
