Injury update on Almiron & Saint-Maximin arrives from Steve Bruce – Worrying comments

Steve Bruce “fears the worst” over the knee injury Miguel Almiron suffered in Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Wolves.

He does accept it’s a little “too early” to say how bad either are, with Allan Saint-Maximin also a huge worry after limping off the field holding his groin, however his comments on Almiron – arguably our best player since the turn of the year – are concerning.

Here’s what Bruce had to say when asked about the pair after the game:

Bruce then had this to say on Miguel Almiron in his post-match interview with the written press – half an hour after he’d spoke to Sky Sports:

“The way he was at half-time told it all.

“He’s a wonderful pro and he was in distress so let’s hope it’s not that bad.

“We’ll have scans tomorrow and see how it is but it’s too early to speculate how serious it was.”

Interesting that he goes from “we fear the worst” (on Sky Sports) to “it’s too early to speculate how serious it is” when speaking to the written press.

Either way, it’s going to be a hammer blow to our survival hopes if both Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin have suffered serious injuries.

There were signs against Wolves to suggest we can just about cope without Wilson, but to lose two more of our most influential attackers would be devastating.

Let’s hope and pray those scans don’t show any serious damage…

  1. Well if that’s Almiron and St Maximum injured we are defo a championship side next season. How is it we have so many injuries compared to other clubs????. Well the Mr Turnip head Bruce can at least have a valid excuse for losing the next 12 games. Hope Mr Ashley your feeling good about yourself can u imagine the loss your gonna make on the selling price of your club lol. I did have a slight hope we would pull thru and stay premier league awh well to b fair championship footy is better to watch anyway.

  3. Tbh Bruce is a ****e manager he’s record speaks for itself the prickly Mike Ashley hasn’t got a clue took over a club that was a top 3 or 4 in the country at the time anyone with a brain would have built on that but no he destroys it all do dosent want to spend no money but when he dose he spends 40 odd mill on and joke of a player it’s not rocket science how to run a club like Newcastle United it’s all there to build on but as long as we have this mug owner and manager it’s gonna be a disaster I’m from London and I’ve supported Newcastle from the age of 13 and it’s never been so bad there taking the soul out if my team and it’s really pissing me off get the duck out if my club
