Fabricio Coloccini Determined To Keep His Bad Hair

The Newcastle Argentine center-back, Fabricio Coloccini, is determined never to get his hair cut short again.


Fabricio Coloccini -will not get hair cut

It turns out that the Argentine did get his hair cut short once, during a difficult spell in Italy at AC Milan as a teenager – but he says he will never bow to player pressure again.

Coloccini said today:

“I will never cut off my hair.” “There was a time when I went to AC Milan and the older players like Costacurta and Maldini said: ‘You must cut your hair. It looks stupid. You must cut it.’

“I was so fed up of everybody’s comments I ended up having it cut. Never again.”

“Here at Newcastle, some of the players say: ‘Bad hair! Bad hair!’ But I don’t care what they say.”


Since this article went out one of our readers has sent in what Coloccini looked like after cropping his hair at AC Milan – we couldn’t resist putting the photo in.

Sorry Fabricio.


Fabricio Coloccini – with short hair – sent in by one of our readers

We on the blog, had followed Coloccini when he played for Argentina in the World Cup in 2006 in Germany, and he looked more than a decent player in those days, and it has not taken Fabricio long to realize that Newcastle fans are full of football passion and fanatacism.

He admitted:

“The passion of the fans here is amazing – they are more passionate than in Spain and similar to fans in Italy.”

“They are like the fans in South America – of Boca Juniors, or a club like that.” “Newcastle are well known in Argentina for their fans.”

“It would be nice if the club was well known again for its football.”

True words from Fabricio, and it would be good if we started to become a much better side, certainly  than we’ve been over the last 4 years, where we’ve been mediocre at best.

But before we can even think of strengthening the squad this summer, we must first of all stay in the Premier League, because if we get relegated we’ll need to offload quite a few of our better players, including Fabricio.

Let’s hope and pray it doesn’t come down to that in June.

That’s the real and terrible situation the club finds itself in right now, and we need some heroes at Newcastle United if are to get the 5 wins we need before the end of the season.

Comments welcome.

    It will be a relief when we go down. 5 mil more for players in the summer is a joke. Stop the torture of another season like this one. When we get relegated, we can get rid of MA, the inept management, and start again minus the money grabbers like Owen and Smith.

    We have been relegation fodder for the last three seasons. How is spending 5 mil in the summer going to change things? Except we now have JK in charge or possibly even the chuckle brothers. A joke. Cashley out!!!!

    Spot on!!!! Fed up with the useless owner, managers and overrated and overpaid and aged players. We need a total clearout and the best way of going about it is relegation.

    *pat* on the back for bennytoon,

    I’m convinced that Spurs will get to 7th spot. In fact I’m more convinced than you. Spurs, what a fantastic team!

    Relegation would kill us. We would be left with next to no one that we would like to stay and have to build a whole new side, we would implode quicker than Leeds.

    Relegation would be a reality check, but thats not to say good will suddenly come of said situation like. People say its the kick up the backside we’d need like after a season down there, we’d be back playing premier league football with a fresh hungry squad ready to challenge the top of the table again and thats just not the case at all.
    You only have to ask teams like Leeds and Forrest how hard it is to get back up once you’ve been sent down like. Granted the Leeds situation was considerably different to ours but at the end of the day if we do get relegated, i cant see us strolling back up to the premiership anytime soon after.

    Waldo, leeds were in a pond of debts! Think about it, if ur a true fan, will u stop watching nufc games koz we’ve gone down? Relegations come and go but we the fans r here to stay! We all fear relegation koz of the premiership money which unfortunately goes straight to our useless massive wage earners! If ur waitin for a large clearout, u’ll b shocked, koz only 2 or 3 will leave! Nufc needs redemption, which will only come thru relegation. It will get rid of the primadonas, the bottlers, the mediocre and the gutless! We’ll b left with players who want to play 4 us and the recruitment policy will fetch us another breed of affordable low wage quality players like Bassong and Guthrie. Whats 1, 2 or even 3 years in the championship when we’ve spent the last five flirting with relegation? Dont get me wrong, if we survive, we’ll still be fightin relegation come this time next year! We need a new crop of winners and fighters, from the owner, the management, the playing staff to us the fans!

    You are tright the club needs a complete overhaul and the only way to achieve it is relegation. Otherwise it will be more of the same rubbish owner, manager and players and another year of torture or another year or another until we eventually get relegated. I would rather be put out of my misery now. 5 mil spent by Cashley in the summer will only make matters worse if we stay up. The sad thing about relegation is that the crowd will disappear and will not return. Its a fact that the majority of supporters are season ticket holders in their 40/50s. They will never return and I can see the crowd slump to 25 or 30 thousand which will be a shame. But it will be necessary to revamp the club. We are no Leeds. we are not in debt and a few seasons in the fizzy would sort out the tossers in the management and on the playing staff. A new more vocal generation of supporter will be born and we shall rise from the ashes. So long MA, chuckle brothers, little Mikey, Smudger, Oba, bartender, Colo, Geremi. Hello a young, committed new breed of player.

    Hi everyone, have been off-line for past month thanks to cokc up by Virgin. Am now with BT so hopefully ok. Relegation will be a disaster for us unless we were able to get straight back up. Last time we went down we nearly ended up in third division (old money) and we were down for some time. I still think there are more rubbish teams than us in the relegation battle and providing lady luck dont keep spitting in our face we should survive.
