The unlikely Newcastle United match-winner yesterday, Argentine Fabricio Coloccini has dedicated his first Newcastle goal to the Toon Army.
Curls Coloccini – celebrating his first ever Newcastle goal
And to think he had just combed his hair!
The Argentine arrived back on Tyneside on Friday from International duty, and looked fresh yesterday, and he battled hard for his goal, which he dispatched brilliantly and like a bullet into the net, from Ryan Taylor’s inch perfect cross.
That was the only goal of the match as Newcastle goto 16 points from their first 6 league games.
The rumors that it was actually Coloccini’s hair that had blocked the Cardiff City defender’s view of Taylor’s right wing cross are being played down on Tyneside, and Fabricio talked to Newcastle United TV today:
“I was very happy to score my first goal and it was an important goal for the team.” “The first cross came in and I managed to get the ball back to Ryan Taylor.”
“He then put in another good cross and I was able to get my header into the back of the net.” “I only got back into England on Friday so to play the full match, score the winner, and keep a clean sheet is perfect for me.”
“We’ve not conceded for five games now which is fantastic – we feel very confident and long may it continue.”
Former Deportivo star Coloccini has also taken time to thank Newcastle’s supporters for sticking with both himself personally and the team in general, during the summer months of more than significant turmoil on Tyneside:
“A lot of things were written in the newspapers about me over the summer saying I wanted to leave the club,” “But that was not true at all. I am happy here and happy to help the club get back into the Premier League.”
“So because of that it was a great feeling to see my goal go in. “It was good to turn around and see the fans celebrating my goal.” “I thank them for sticking by us and they have been excellent with me and the team.”
And there was also an awful lot of nonsense written over the summer, about how Newcastle would sink fast and do another Leeds United.
But you have to give the betting people credit, because they consistently had Newcastle as first favorites for promotion from the CCC.
We are still hoping they turn out to be right by next May.
