Both Coloccini and Nicky Butt are in the squad for tomorrow’ game at Ipswich.
Fabricio Coloccini – back in side tomorrow
Rumors suggest he may even comb his hair before game
Chris Hughton talked about the players back in the squad today:
”Coloccini is back into the squad, as are Nicky Butt and Jose Enrique.” “Nicky has had a slight problem, and in typically Nicky fashion has been working through it.”
“Danny Simpson, even though we are going to give it to the last minute, is still a big doubt.” “Tamas Kadar will be out, and Andy Carroll comes back in.”
“Joey Barton is out. He has a slight problem with his foot.” “It is something he has been carrying in the last two games, and we just felt he needed that little period of rest.”
If Danny doesn’t make it, we wonder if Chris would consider playing Zurab Khizanishvili in his place.
Zurab can play at full back as well as center-back.
The obvious choice would be Ryan Taylor of course, but we have to think that Khizanishvili is good enough to get a starting place in the back four at Newcastle.
At the very least he needs to be given his chance early.
But we should have a strong defense out tomorrow, and Newcastle need a clean sheet tomorrow night.
That will go a long long way to allowing the lads to get the win we desperately need – which is the only result good enough tomorrow night.
Howay The Lads!!
