Xisco Got Glowing Report Of Newcastle From Coloccini


Newcastle United new 22 year-old striker has revealed that his former team-mate at Deportivo La Coruna team-mate Fabricio Coloccini told him all about Newcastle and Tyneside, before he joined yesterday, on a £5.5M deal.

Xisco – glowing report from Coloccini on Newcastle United

It seems that Fabricio gave him a glowing report of things on Tyneside as Xisco told nufc.co.uk yesterday:

“I spoke with Colo and he told me all about the club and the city,”

“He said it was a great place and that it would make him very happy if I joined him at Newcastle.”

“Of course I know Colo and also Jose Enrique from Spain under-21,” “There are also other Spanish speakers and that will be a big help to begin with.”

“But I want to work on my English and learn the language within the first few months.” “That is important because I will be able to get to know all of my team-mates and also settle in the area.”

That’s good to hear from Xisco – and from Fabricio.

But both players may find they have a new manager shortly as the news doesn’t look good about Kevin, there are too many legitimate news agencies now reporting he’s been sacked.

Comments welcome.

    It’s a shame he has came in at this moment of time. But I am sure every fan wants him to do well and be a success here!

    If KK has been sacked as is being reported, does anyone else subscribe to the conspiracy theory that MA:

    a. Knew he was getting rid and therefore didn’t allow any money to be spent by Keegan.
    b. Waited until the end of the transfer window to sack him to avoid the inevitable transfer requests from the players.
    c. Used KK as bait for the players he did get in.

    I have to say I am devastated, I really had hoped we had turned a corner when MA arrived and eventually brought in KK

    Hope this kid is good. Not supporting conspiracy theories at the moment. I think I’ll wait for an official announcement.

    Enjoy your afternoon of whinging and unnecessary anger.

    Ok so it looks like Wise will be our next manager…

    …who knows what his management style is like? What sort of team did he play with at Leeds? formation etc?

    Cheers

    Owen is gone this summer for nothing. Keegan is gone already. Milner gone. Tranfer requests lining up I bet. Dominoes are falling. Looking pretty effing dark right now. What a difference from the last bit of sunshine from Keegan huh? “irons in the fire” “happy” about the Milner sale … Then a 26 year old loanie and a striker no one has heard of and the manager out the door. Hurts my brain no end.

    Bastards.

    I doubt MA has sacked KK very much!! If KK has truely gone as we are now suppose to believe it would of been his decision and not that of the clubs.

    MA and the board would be fools to sack the man that, let’s face it, all of the fans see as NUFC, and whos side we’d all be on before the owners.

    Think of the reaction by fans if this is the case……………? KK sacked? there’d be burning cardboard cutouts outside the ground for weeks to come!

    Glad I went to bed at 11.00 last night – could see no action. Glad I went to the garden centre this afternoon – could see no action….

    Will await developments in due course…….. been here before.

    Looking forward to seeing Xisco and Gonzales though – might have a canny team if they all stay fit. Glad I’m not Mark Hughes – wonder how long he’ll last!

    Hate Dennis Wise.

    Never get a top name proven manager now, with the last 2 managers only given 6 months and 8 months, being Newcastle manager ruins your career. Only person i can see taking job is Dennis Wise.

    Man, this freakin’ sucks. I’m a yank and just became a Toon fan about six months ago. You can imagine how much I anticipated this season. I’ve already hung a framed picture of King Kev in my house!! I had dared to dream that nufc might have a top 6 finish. HAH! What brilliant, impeccable f*kkin’ timing:( Ya know, I gotta say- I LOVE football. I mean, words can’t really express my undying passion for this game. BUT- one thing I gotta give American football is that it’s managed a HELLUVA lot better than this shirade. You never know what’s gonna happen in the NFL over here. A team could have the shittiest season EVER and next season come back and win the Superbowl. Not so much in the UK apparently. I’m so tired of hearing about the stupid F*kkin’ “top 4” I could SHITE! Ahh, sorry about the rant, I’m just a little dissappointed that’s all.

    Howay the lads.

    Kinda disgusted to-day.
    Feel like MA has pulled a con job on the Fans , KK, etc.
    Where are the promised reinforcements, never mind the WOW signing (hope it was`nt The Xisco Kid)
    Whats the story Mike?, would you like to explain why you lied to us and why you fired KK.
    And dont even think about making that rat Wise manager, unless you are totally dumb.
    You are gonna need some great PR if you are going to remain as owner of this club, yet you just keep compounding your f*** ups .
    I guess by this time you must be top of every fans s**t list.
    C`mon man, get your s**t to-gether!

    No i think he has been sacked when the official statement comnes it will say Mutual Consent which would say to me hes been sacked but dont want the work sacked to be used (still trying to palm blame of the fans onto KK) all i need to say is you have seen what hes done in a short time hes got Jonas one of the best NUFC ever i have seen also Collo and Guthrie were good signing too, Is everyone with this, If KK is SACKED and IF Wise is manager we need a revolt 🙂 Wise couldnt manage a championship side let alone a premiership one 🙁
