According to the official site John Carew should be fit for Saturday’s game against Bolton.

{sarcasm mode on}Thank goodness for that, I don’t know what we’d have done without his never say die, shoot on site performances {sarcasm mode off}

Carew, who came off v Manchester United (although to be fair, there were a good few who didn’t actually realise he was on the pitch) with a groin strain, is apparently feeling better.

MON said he is ‘very optimistic’ that JC will return saying he felt ‘a million times better’ by Monday.

Adding, ‘He wants to play and he understands that sometimes you just get on with it. He’s prepared to do that and feels very positive about playing on Saturday. John is a very important player for us and we’re trying to use his experience to help the younger players alongside him – Gabby, Ashley Young and Shaun Maloney.’

JC has 9 goals this season, three of them coming during the Newcastle game. If he used his size, strength and speed, he could be on 20. What he lacks at the moment is aggression and sometimes it looks like he also lacks any interest at all.
