Skirge Posted April 22, 2009 Share Posted April 22, 2009 Well I say back that sort of implies we have had him in some way.. http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/nufc/newcastle-united-news/2009/04/22/nacho-to-speed-to-al-s-rescue-72703-23443924/ Nacho Gonzalez may help NUFC survival attempt Apr 22 2009 by Lee Ryder, Evening Chronicle NEWCASTLE United’s forgotten man Nacho Gonzalez could yet play a part in Alan Shearer’s Toon survival bid. The midfielder could probably walk down Northumberland Street unrecognised after making just two appearances in a black and white shirt since arriving on a year long loan from Valencia. Ironically the man whose arrival, along with £5.7m striker Xisco, triggered Kevin Keegan’s departure in September after Dennis Wise and Tony Jimenez oversaw their transfers, could yet contribute to Newcastle’s fight against relegation. The frustrated Uruguay international has been plagued by an Achilles injury throughout the season and played minimal roles in the defeats against Hull City and West Ham in September. Yet the crucial clash with Portsmouth will come too soon for the man on loan from the Mestalla. United coach Iain Dowie told the Chronicle: “Nacho has had an Achilles problem for a while. “He’s back and he’s been training with me for three or four days. “He was in full training and then had a rest. “He will fully train again on Thursday and then we will look at giving him a game in the reserves at Liverpool next week.” Toon boss Alan Shearer has already bemoaned a “lack of creativity” following the 1-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur and there is every chance that Gonzalez – who has played just 38 minutes this term – will get his chance in the crucial run-in.
