Not only was Kevin Keegan delighted with the Newcastle display this afternoon at Old Trafford, but the fans must now realize this at last could be the season we’ve been waiting for since the great Bobby Robson left the club.
Coloccini – impressive debut at the back
And Kevin Keegan found it hard to hold back his delight, as he talked about his 3 new players to nufcTV after the game:
“The three new signings were fantastic,” “Danny was everywhere and never wasted a ball, he was my man-of-the-match. Jonas showed what he can do, he’s very exciting.”
“Fabricio has only trained with the players just the once on Friday.” “But he said to me ‘I want to play’ and that was good enough for me.”
“I had no option in the end because we lost Claudio Cacapa to injury and I just told him to enjoy it.” “He came in and played very well and will get better and better for us.”
“We haven’t signed that many, but what we have got is real quality and that showed against Man United.”
Coloccini played like he had been in the Premier league a couple of seasons, by the time the game ended. He looks made to measure for this league and he is full of confidence and plays very much like Chelsea’s Ricardo Carvalho.
Very good in the air, skillful on the ground, very cool and seems to enjoy playing football.
He could make all the difference for our side this season, and looked solid alongside young Steven Taylor, who had an outstanding game for Newcastle today.
