Why do Newcastle United players keep getting injured?

Manchester United and Reading may top the injured lists but Newcastle’s injury problems over the last couple of years have been persistent and serious enough to warrant this question.

Although several players are slated to return for Newcastle United by the end of April, Newcastle’s ‘luck’ is such that they might just lose several other players before 13th May.

And who can forget their injury crisis mid-season?

Is it just bad luck, is it the new training pitch, or is it something else?

I was tempted to run a headline ‘Newcastle United are cursed with injuries’ but it felt too much like Tribal Football.

It may not be far off the truth though.

What do you guys think? Is there any reason behind Newcastle’s constant injury scares or have Newcastle just been unlucky?

Arsenal dump Dein, but how is (if he is) Kroenke involved?
