Our Argentine center-back, Fabricio Coloccini, has made a good start to his second season in the English Premier League.
Fab Coloccini – made solid start to the season
Fabricio Coloccini told the Evening Chronicle today:
“After the game against Manchester United we were sad but we didn’t get too down about the situation.” “We came back and had a good win.”“But that is now history and we have to look to the next game against Wolves.”
“I think we will have to do that every week – each week is a new challenge and that’s exactly how we will look at it.” “We have to think about the word survival to begin with.” “Until we are beyond 40 points I don’t think we can do anything else – once we reach that we know we’d be safe.”
“I’d like to think we can survive.” “Maybe next year I could come out and say we’re going for the top 10 or higher depending on how things are.” “We must build the club and grow as a team.”
Coloccini gained lots of new Geordie fans last summer, when he elected to stay at Newcastle in their time of need, and significantly helped the club back to the Premier League at the very first attempt, by putting in many solid performances last season.
We are very impressed with the way Chris Hughton keeps the players’ feet firmly on the ground, and of course the sign of a good side is when they go into every game ready and willing to do whatever is needed to win.
And that’s independent of the last game, whether is was a big win or a big defeat or whatever – because that game is history, it’s over.
Newcastle are threatening to do just that, and we’ll know better tomorrow afternoon, as the game at unbeaten Wolves, will be another good test for the side.
Fabricio has made, well a fabulous start to the season, and has looked extremely solid at the back alongside 26 year-old Mike Williamson, who has also played very well for the Newcastle side, since signing from Portsmouth for just £1M last January.
Sol Campbell should be ready to play in the game against Blackpool at home on Saturday, 11th September, that’s two weeks tomorrow, and it will be interesting to see who starts at centr-back in that game, which we must win against a fellow relegation side.
