With Daryl Janmaaat and Mike Williamson both suspended for their next match, expect another patchwork defensive unit named by John Carver as Newcastle host West Brom this weekend.
Fabricio Coloccini will be at center back as per usual, otherwise Carver will have to move a few pieces around lest he wants to dip in to his youth squad. Expect Ryan Taylor to shift back to right back to fill in for Janmaat, Jack Colback to shift to left back from central midfield and Paul Dummett, who would normally be at left back, to push in to partner Coloccini. It would be difficult to imagine anything but a long day at the office for this unit, so despite not being known for attacking investment, the Baggies should be looked at for possible options there to potentially exploit the Toon.

Newcastle United could never get anything going at Goodison Park, as poor defending, a lack of Papiss Cisse and a red card given to Fabricio Coloccini all played a role in a forgettable 3-0 loss to Everton.

The Magpies may be suffering from "not enough to play for disease" as they will likely sputter their way to a mid table finish and avoid relegation. Everton took advantage and dominated the game in every way. The major damage though is likely the Coloccini red. He gave a rash tackle on Aaron Lennon and was sent off with a quickness. Now the club captain stands to miss the next three. It is truly the last area John Carver can afford to lose a player as there next center back option would likely be the extremely green Lubomir Satka. With Arsenal next up, all bets are off with Newcastle investment right now.

Newcastle will need to check on a number of their high profile stars ahead of Saturdays’ hugely daunting trip to Stamford Bridge after several of their players were rested as a precaution for last weekends’ FA Cup tie at the King Power Stadium.

Moussa Sissoko, Jack Colback, Daryl Janmaat and Fabricio Coloccini were all experiencing muscular discomfort following a heavy festive fixture period and temporary manager John Carver decided to take no risks despite the baying Geordie public desperate for cup success. The Newcastle squad are currently stretched to capacity with no fewer than seventeen [17] missing or at risk of dropping out which includes those on African Cup of Nations duty – Papiss Cisse and Mehdi Abeid – while Steven Taylor underwent surgery on Wednesday after rupturing his Achilles on New Years’ Day. The defender will be sidelines for between 6-9 months.

Alan Pardew confirmed on Tuesday that Captain Fabricio Coloccini will miss the next three Premier League games after a scan on Tyneside confirmed the central defender had suffered a calf injury during the win at West Brom in game week eleven.

Coloccini limped off at the Hawthorns almost ten days ago but the Argentine defender flew straight home post-match and only returned to England this weekend. Tests revealed a minor strain – grade one – which is expected to keep him out until December with Pardew sweating on the fitness of a number of defenders. Steven Taylor [knee] was absent last time out although his knee injury is not thought to be serious – Mike Williamson has only just recovered from a muscular problem and is lacking fitness while Davide Santon is slightly behind schedule. Add Mehdi Abeid [broken toe] into the equation and again the international break has been unkind to United.

Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini made this week's Best XI after a fantastic performance in Newcastle's win over Leicester City.

Coloccini and the Newcastle defense did well in this match but this team has conceded 14 goals in 8 matches. We don't particularly like their chances of clean sheets going ahead and almost none of their defenders are worth owning, regardless of the matchup. The only exception here might be Daryl Janmaat, who gets some offensive stats to boost his average to eight fantasy points per game.

Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini is back in Argentina after a family bereavement, and will miss their class with Hull City Tigers.

Newcastle is already facing a bit of an injury crisis, but losing their captain and star defender is another matter entirely. They were beaten by multiple goals per match in his most recent absence. Steven Taylor and Mike Williamson will most likely be Newcastle's center backs this weekend.

In dire need of a boost, Newcastle United could welcome back two of their more important players - Fabricio Coloccini and Cheik Tiote - against Aston Villa.

Both players are doubts, but their return would help steady a team that has shipped 10 goals in their last three matches.

Newcastle captain, Fabricio Coloccini, faces another spell on the sidelines after damaging his knee's medial ligaments against West Brom.

Coloccini could miss six weeks, and is a huge loss for the Magpies. Steven Taylor, or more likely, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, will deputize alongside Mike Williamson.

Fabricio Coloccini could be available for selection this weekend, as Newcastle look to beat another London team, this time against Spurs at White Hart Lane.

Despite keeping a clean sheet against Chelsea last weekend, the Magpies would welcome their captain's return.

In a shocking repudiation of recent reports, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew declared that Fabricio Coloccini had an outside chance of making the weekend's derby match.

Coloccini was reported to be out until Christmas, but he is running, if not training, with the first team. Pardew won't risk his captain so it still seems unlikely that Coloccini will play this weekend, but it's still quite a change of fortune for the defender.

Fabricio Coloccini, who had already ruled out of the weekend's Tyne-Wear derby, is now expected to be out through Christmas.

Coloccini injured his groin on international duty and Newcastle is now discovering the true extent of the injury. The Magpies' defensive lynchpin will miss around ten matches and it will be up to Steven Taylor, and increasingly less likely, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to fill the void.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has ruled skipper Fabricio Coloccini out of the weekend's big derby against Sunderland.

Coloccini is still nursing a groin injury he picked up on international duty with Argentina. While Mathieu Debuchy performed admirably against Liverpool after Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa was shown a red card, it will be Steven Taylor who will partner Mike Williamson at the back against Sunderland.

Club captain Fabricio Coloccini is a major doubt for Newcastle's match against Liverpool after withdrawing from the Argentina squad with a muscle injury.

Coloccini was expected to face Luis Suarez's Uruguay but is now back in Newcastle to find out the extent of his injury. Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, or possibly Steven Taylor, will likely partner Mike Williamson this weekend.

A done deal for FC Twente's Brazillian defender Douglas was nixed by new Director of Football, Joe Kinnear, who had never heard of the player.

Newcastle need to improve their center-back options, especially with Fabricio Coloccini still unsettled at the club. This bureaucratic power-play has already caused one resignation from Newcastle's highly regarded scouting staff, and could well lead to more turmoil at a club that can hardly afford more drama.

Fabricio Coloccini has been ordered to return for pre-season training despite remaining unsettled in England.

With his family in Argentina, Coloccini understandably wants to return home. Hopefully Newcastle can avoid a Carlos Tevez-style distraction, but one could become unavoidable. Coloccini has been Newcastle's stand-out defender for several seasons now and they will need him to be healthy and focused.
