It’s already well documented that the club is considering bringing in at least one centre-back, another centre-back, and a central midfielder for yesterday’s match against Leeds. ..
Frustratingly, our huge victory on Elland Road was sacrificed. Jamal Rassel’s (hamstring), Paul Dummett (hamstring?), Joelinton (groin) will cause new muscle injuries.
Matt Ritchie also seems to be the fourth player to be injured and lost in the last 48 hours. Eddie Howe revealed on Friday morning’s presser that he would be evaluated pre-match due to his knee problems. So it seemed pretty ominous that he was absent from the team yesterday.
Therefore, as all of the above are set to face bystander spells, attempts to sign some new centre-backs, another centre-back, and an impressive central midfielder are approaching the final week. You’ll think you’ll raise the notch as you move in the transfer window?
What Howe had to say on the front lines of all post-match injuries was about our performance as a whole, the outstanding players, and the traveling toon army sung on Elland Road from the first minute to the end. With his comment on:
Howe about Joelinton, Dammet, Russells Injury:
“Since I arrived, Joelinton has been plagued by crotch problems. Today he succumbs to disappointment when he thinks of himself.”
“I don’t know how serious it is [Dummett’s injury is].. Fatigue may have contributed. “
“In the case of Jamal, I think it’s his hamstring because he fell awkwardly. I need to evaluate it.”
Howe’s immediate reaction to a 1-0 victory at Leeds:
“I thought to the man that everyone really contributed to the victory.
“Incredible strength-it’s always against Leeds.
“We had to be very physically good and suffered some injuries, but in the end it was a heroic endeavor.”
How to do my best to win:
“I was very impressed by the players.
“It was a big challenge for us behind the scenes last week.
“The good news was that it wasn’t back on the wall. We weren’t camping in the box.
“If anything, we looked like a team that might score again.”
Shelvey, Trippier, Wood Howe:
“I’m really happy with Jonjo Shelvey. He played a very important role in the team and balanced.”
“Today there was also the power of recruitment. Trippier and Wood were outstanding today.
“It’s the power when you get it right.”
Howe of a traveling Newcastle fan:
“From the early stages of the game, they were great.
“Leeds can be hostile, but I can’t give enough compliments to their support.
“It makes me think about what would happen if I could bring consistent success here.”
