It's Moore bad news for Glenn on injury front

Dec 28 2006

By Alan Oliver, The Evening Chronicle

 

Newcastle United defender Craig Moore has suffered a setback with his hamstring injury.

 

And that leaves Glenn Roeder wondering when he is ever going to be able to field a recognisable back four again.

 

Roeder heads back to the North West for Saturday's game with Everton without FIVE of his defenders - Moore, Titus Bramble, Olivier Bernard, Stephen Carr and Celestine Babayaro.

 

And that could well be considered as six, as Nobby Solano, who has had to be used at right- back by Roeder, only has a 50-50 chance of returning as he recovers from a groin injury.

 

The United boss admitted today: "To be perfectly honest I cannot put a comeback date on Moore, Bramble, Bernard or Carr.

 

"Babayaro has had a scan on his hamstring injury and it revealed that there is a grade one tear which will keep him out for two or three weeks.

 

"Moore has broken down and this is probably due to all the previous hamstring injuries he has suffered in his career.

 

"Bramble is only back in very light training - and I mean very light - and we don't really know when he will be back. The same applies to Bernard, who is having an operation on his hip.

 

"And as far as Carr is

 

concerned, he is keeping physically fit, but there is still bruising on his foot and he cannot strike a ball. His return is open-ended - it could be tomorrow or weeks.

 

"Solano has a chance for Saturday, but if not he should make Manchester United on Monday."

 

United's defensive injuries mean that Roeder has been forced to use no fewer than SEVEN of his men at right-back this season - Carr, Solano, Steven Taylor, Peter Ramage, Paul Huntington, David Edgar and James Milner, the latter for a spell in the win at Blackburn Rovers earlier this month.

 

Roeder, of course, also has strikers Michael Owen and Shola Ameobi as long-term injury victims, while the United boss is not expecting Charles N'Zogbia back until "some time in February".

 

And plans to have Damien Duff back on the bench at the Reebok Stadium on Boxing Day had to be abandoned after the £5m signing suffered some reaction in training.

 

Roeder added: "Duff has done some extra work over Christmas after his knee operation and as a result his calf tightened up, and it seems that no matter what we do we cannot win.

 

"But the only consolation is that, apart from Kieron Dyer's freak eye injury, every injury we have had actually occurred during matches, until Babayaro was hurt in training last Thursday."

And Givens only 50-50 for Everton.

 

 

Reckon we'll be lucky to get any points out of the next 2 games,  then hopefully have a player or 2 back for the Birmingham cup game.  We've then got 8 days to get some people back for Spurs away,  which again,  won't be easy.

 

 

Not going to be a good couple of weeks.

Bramble-has talent but needs good coach who can develop it although his shocking displays this season has cost us too many points so he needs to be sold or be a squad player

Solano-great morale,great professionalism,always giving 100%,TRUE GEORDIE

Bernard-is he alive???

So are you saying that the one season he played in England,when it was PATENTLY obvious that he wasn't good enough for Premiership football,to any one who saw him play,myself included,for Coventry City,from whence he went back to Scotland where he has performed well in their poorer quality Premier League.He aint good enough for us pal.Might be ok for a Championship side but we have enough mares in our squad that we all pray stay injured thanks.

 

Incidentally he played 19 times for Coventry in 1994-95 season before they hoofed him back up the road to Dundee U.

 

That my friend is a fair amount of Fuck all
