Newcastle chief Glenn Roeder has revealed that keeper Steve Harper is likely to need surgery in the near future.

 

Harper was pressed into action in September when Magpies number one Shay Given suffered a perforated bowel against West Ham.

 

The keeper performed solidly in Given's stead, but he suffered a groin injury shortly after taking over the gloves and was forced to play through the pain barrier.

 

Given returned against Arsenal on Saturday and after the game Roeder confirmed Harper is likely to head under the surgeon's knife.

 

"Steve Harper was unfortunate not to play today," Roeder told Sky Sports News. "He has done really well for us.

 

"He has carried an injury for five or six weeks and unfortunately he will probably need some surgery soon."

 

With youngster Tim Krul in the treatment room with a knee injury, veteran Pavel Srnicek is likely to be asked to act as cover for Given.

 

 

 

I know he wouldn't have played much now anyway with Given being back but it is typical of us as soon as he gets a chance he is hampered by injury.

 

Is there any more specific news on Krul? Completely forgot about his injury :oops:

To be fair Man U's no. 3 keeper is a very good keeper and it would be stupid for McLaren to pick a player for his squad who was certain to be sitting on the bench for the rest of the season as soon as Shay was back.

I wouldn't go that far, Foster has been good this season and was apparently great last season. Black and White tinted specs?

Kieron Richardson and Shaun Wright-Phillips tell me that McClaren picks regular reserves in his squads.

I bet they have played a hell of a lot more games than Harper over the last few years.

 

I don't think Richardson should be in the squad anyway as he is dogshit BUT you can get away with some outfield squad players being a little rusty but to take a goalkeeper who has played maybe 20 games in the last few seasons when there are players who are (imo) as good if not a little better is madness!

 

Yes club football you would have to put up with a little rustyness when your main keeper is out but with the options you have at international level its just stupid!

They are sending Taylor with him for surgery - a full-frontal lobotomy and while they're in there they are going to grind down his eyebrows. And they are going to re-route the nerve that makes his ribs hurt when the ball hits his hand.

 

Should make him a better defender.

Sweet baby Jesus and the orphans.

 

Where are the Harper haters who said he has no ambition or is doing another Marcelino? Counting money with no desire to play?

 

Im here, he is garbage, would rather have Mike Hooper back, tbh.
