Fab Coloccini – Every Game Is A New Challenge For Us


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.

Comments welcome.

    +1

    Colo looking the player I always thought he was at the minute.
    Willo is proving to be a brilliant signing.

    Campbell will only help too, it’s all good at the minute….strange feeling!!! lol

    coloccini is a class act both on the pitch and off it in interviews and with the crowd………..

    He has a 1st class attitude and while many expected him to go back to spain were he is proven 2 years ago, he stayed and battled with us, being arguably our most consistant and solid player last season, and has started this one very well 🙂

    yes he has something to prove this season but he was solid at man utd and limited them chances, and had carew and young in his back pocket against villa

    he and williamson have a great partnership and undeerstanding and i hope theyre solid performances and colo’s great attitude and passion on pitch continues

    great stuff fabricio………….he is fast becoming a hero of tyneside and fair play to him 🙂

    I’ve notice that whenever I read comments from Colo, Jonas or Sanchez, I read it with a Spanish accent. Does anyone else do it?

    Frighteningly enough, yes, I do too.
    I also do similar bizzare things when playing Football Manager.

    I am quite, quite insane though…

    What’s your excuse?

    Is it me or are a number of our players much better becoz of of the Cc. It can be argued that in colos case when he first arrived he used to be destroyed by the big strong strikers and in my opinion the Strikers in the fizzy are much more stronger physically than the ones in the prem
    Even in the case of Carrol the Prem defenders are more skillfull and have more guile but are not used to someone like Carrol and he benefited from playing last year in a league where the defenders took him and the ball and as a result he is much more stronger in this league.
    Just a thought !
    Anyway going to the library hope king arfa has checked in when i am done !

    I said a while ago it might have been a blessing getting relegated, getting rid of the dead wood, lowering wages, lowering expectations, giving players more experience i.e carroll, guthrie etc, and giving the foreign players time to adapt, and slowly building the squad again, i think it has worked out for the best
