Wants to come back!

 

FIGHTING TALK

 

GLENN Roeder today likened the freak injury which robbed him of Kieron Dyer to "being hit by a thunderbolt".

But Roeder has vowed Newcastle United will "come out fighting" against Charlton Athletic tonight, as they look to turn their league campaign around.

Dyer – who made a midweek comeback against Portsmouth – had been set for his first Premiership appearance in more than six months after overcoming his long-term hamstring problems.

But Dyer's eye was caught by a pole while he was doing a shuttle run yesterday morning, and he now faces a frustrating few weeks on the sidelines.

Roeder said: "Everyone at the training ground yesterday was absolutely gutted at what happened to Kieron.

"It was like being hit with a thunderbolt, but it's no good being down about it.

"If the players see myself and the rest of the coaches being affected by something like this, then it has an adverse effect on them.

"There are two things you can do in situations like this. You can curl up and die or come out punching and fighting.

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going and that's what everyone from the chairman down to the tea lady will be doing."

Roeder revealed Dyer will have to sit out training for the next two weeks, ruling him out of some crucial games, including next week's UEFA Cup tie away to Palermo.

He added: "Kieron took a knock to his left eye in what can only be described as a freak accident.

"We immediately took him to see a specialist and his advice was that he needs to rest and not to take part in any contact training for at least two weeks."

 

Meanwhile, controversial winger Laurent Robert has told of his desire to return to Newcastle.

Robert left the club last year after falling out with Graeme Souness, and is currently playing for La Liga side Levante.

But he has not given up hope of a return to Tyneside.

He said: "When I think of my time at Newcastle, I can think of only one word – fantastic.

"I really loved my time there as I enjoyed English football and I'd love to come back if Mr Shepherd would have me.

"There was only one reason why I left Newcastle and that was Graeme Souness."

Robert would be available in January, but he will not get his wish of an emotional return.

Always a good move for a club thats "moving forward"

 

It's too late for Robert, but there is nothing wrong with bringing any player back who will improve the team. Do you think Beardsley only had one spell at the club, or something? McDermott? Wouldn't you take Bellamy back right now?
