Blow for Magpies as Barton set to miss another month


Recommended Posts

Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton will be out of action for another month.

 

The 25-year-old is yet to make his competitive debut for the club after fracturing a metatarsal in a pre-season friendly at Carlisle just weeks after his £5.8million move from Manchester City.

 

Barton revealed last week he had set himself a target of being back for Sunday's visit of Everton and has travelled with the squad to their last three away games to add moral support.

 

However, on the day England striker Michael Owen returned to the club's training headquarters to begin his rehabilitation from his double bout of surgery in Germany, manager Sam Allardyce wrote his summer signing out of his plans until well beyond the forthcoming international break.

 

He said: "Joey Barton has got no chance for Everton on Sunday. It will be four or five weeks, or at least three or four reserve games."

You think Geremi is a better defensive midfielder than Butt?

 

Cant see it myself, I think Geremi is a better all-rounder but he`s not better in that position

 

I think Geremi is better at not kicking the heels of players and giving away stupid freekicks in dangerous positions than Butt.

 

Neither have excelled, but for me Geremi has been the better of the two.

I find it interesting that you don't seem to think that new face Faye should be in the squad. Any particular reason for that?

Cos hes an average CB who is playing as a poor CM at the minute.

Because Dan only wants to use four subs.
