Fabricio Coloccini has so far scored two goals in his Newcastle career, but both were in games away from home.
Coloccini after scoring last Saturday at Watford
His first goal earlier this season was at Cardiff City, and then Fabricio scored his second goal last Saturday at Watford after just 4 minutes of that game.
But it turns out that Fabricio would really like to score a goal at St. James’ Park, often called the Cathedral on the Hill by the great Bobby Robson.
This is what Fabricio told the Newcastle official site today:
“I have scored two goals and both have been away from home,” “Both of them have helped to win games and that has been good.””But I would love to score a goal at St. James’ Park. To do that would be so special in front of the home fans.”
“I have come very close a couple of times but now I have six games left this season to get that goal.” “Barnsley is the next game so why not then? “
“Of course, getting the three points is the most important thing, but to score is always nice.” “When we played Barnsley away I remember it was a difficult game and they scored a very late goal to equalize.”
“But now, at home, we think we can get the three points. It is up to us to attack from the first whistle.” “All of the players love to play at St.James’ Park and that shows by our results.”
“We are looking forward to the game and hopefully to another win.”
If Fabricio can score at St. James’ Park he will get a tremendous ovation from the home fans, who are only too willing to applaud the talented Argentine defender, who has been outstanding for Newcastle this season.
Maybe he can indeed get a goal on Saturday afternoon against Barnsley – we hope so.
