Newcastle custodian to face the knife?

It is being reported that Newcastle United custodian Shay Given would have to miss the rest of the injury since it is looking more and more likely that he would require a surgery on his groin. Given injured his groin a fortnight back during a Premiership clash with Aston Villa and fail to make his return against Manchester United last weekend.

Newspaper reports suggest that Given now requires a surgery to stop the rot and if a surgery isn’t performed soon, then he could face long term problems with the groin. The news is of course a thunderbolt for Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan who wants all his key soldiers to stave off relegation.
