QPR’s Fitz Hall, on loan at Newcastle until the end of the season, could return to the side that takes on Plymouth Argyle at Home Park tomorrow night at 7:45 pm.
Fitz Hall – Newcastle are on their way back
Fitz has started 6 games for Newcastle, and has looked solid at the back when he has played.
And the London-born player has now recovered from his hamstring injury, and with Fabricio Coloccini only so-so with his hamstring injury sustained at Reading 5 days ago, Fitz could make his 7th start tomorrow night.
We understand 20 year-old center-back Tamas Kadar may also be fit from his hamstring problems, but both Coloccini and Kadar are more questionable than Fitz, which is why Hall may get the nod from gaffer Chris Hughton tomorrow night.
And Fitz has had some good things to say about what he’s seen at Newcastle since January, and he believes the Newcastle club is on their way back:
“Sometimes you have to take a step down to take two steps forward, and I definitely feel Newcastle are on the up and they are rebuilding.”
“The players they have here, the experienced players, are pulling the young boys through.”
“The boys Chris Hughton, the gaffer, has brought in are all young, hungry and they are up for a challenge.”
Fitz is also full of praise for one of Newcastle’s best players this season, Argentine center-back Fabricio Coloccini.
This is what the 29-year-old center-back said about Coloccini today:
“He’s the best player I have played with. Before I came here, I didn’t know too much about him, I had just seen him on telly.”
“But I have been impressed. When you watch Match of the Day and see the highlights, you don’t get the full view of what a player is.”
“But training with him, he is by far the best centre-half I have ever played with.”
Those are good words from Fitz, and we have to hope the lads will be good enough for the Premiership next season.
The team seems to have a new professionalism about it since Chris Hughton took over last July, and certainly they can scrap it out in games with the best of them.
And after seeing the expensive Chelsea players wilt under pressure against Spurs yesterday, and seemingly almost give up in the second half, that fight could get us quite a few points next season.
Newcastle will never give up in games, not these days, and not after what happened last season, when we had far too many overpaid whimps playing for Newcastle.
There’s not one overpaid whimp playing at Newcastle this season, they all left last summer, for one reason or another.
