Newcastle have brought in two center-backs in January, and both players look more than decent.
Fabricio Coloccini – shown dedication to Newcastle United
We bought Portsmouth’s Mike Williamson for around £1M, and the player looks a bargain at that price.
We also brought in QPR’s Fitz Hall, on loan through the end of the season.
Both players are 6’4″ tall, and should be good in the air, and they look to be just that.
If Newcastle decide to bring Fitz Hall permanently into the club during the summer, then we’ll have Coloccini, Williamson, Steven Taylor, Fitz Hall and 19 year-old youngster Tamas Kadar – all challenging for the two central defensive positions.
We wonder if things are being set up to sell Argentine Fabricio Coloccini, and get his reported £75K/week off the wage bill.
We think that would be a mistake, because the Argentine has been a mountain at the back for Newcastle this season, and has amply shown his dedication to the Newcastle cause.
Fabricio will also be motivated next season to show he is a Premier League class player, after a spotty first season last year.
With the experiences of his last two seasons in English football, we have to believe he will be a lot better in the Premier League next season, if we get promoted.
What do you think? Do you think the club are maneuvering to sell Fabricio this summer?
Let us know – comments welcome.
