Blackpool Game More Difficult Than It Looks

Fabricio Coloccini has made a fine start to his second season in the English Premier league and his third season for Newcastle United.

Fab Coloccini – great start to the season

Coloccini will be hoping Newcastle will be able to get their second successive home win tomorrow afternoon against Blackpool, but by now Newcastle fans will know that most people, including manager Chris Hughton, do not think this game will be as easy as it looks on paper.

Blackpool in their two away trips this season walloped Wigan 4-0 on that first day of the season, but then were taken apart at Arsenal by a score of  6-0, but they were down to 10 men when the real damage was done in that game at the Emirates Stadium.

The Argentine International, a favorite player of ours for the last four years, remains cautiously optimistic as Newcastle face Blackpool for the second time this year at St. James’.

He told the Evening Chronicle today:

“We have not lost at home for a long time and the most important thing is to keep that going.”  “Blackpool is the next game and we have a had a good rest since the last game to ready for it.”

“We want to keep that run going for the fans and we also know that getting three more points increases the confidence for the group.”

Fabricio has forged an excellent partnership with Mike Williamson at Newcastle, but there will be a certain Sol Campbell on the bench tomorrow, just itching to play for Newcastle as soon as possible.

If ever there was a reason for Fab and Mike to have good games tomorrow, it’s that Sol is now pushing hard for a first team place.

We hope not only our two central defenders, but the whole team plays well tomorrow, and if we can get those 3 points by 5:00 pm tomorrow afternoon, it will have been a great first 4 game for the Magpies in what is a vital Premier League season for the club.

7 points from 4 games and not not too bad at all.

Howay The Lads!!

    Oh, and by the way, Sweden played 2 Europeanchampionship-qualifiers last weekend and my bet was 2-0 win against Hungary and 6-0 win against San Marino and guess what? 2 rights in 2!

    So my betting is on a hot streak at the moment!

    I reckon we shouldn’t get carried away…this season is similar to last in respect of unknowns. I mean, we didn’t know how we were going to do last season early on, but took things week by week…again this season, a couple of bad results/injuries, and it could go t*ts up for a while…leading to lower table positions which erode confidence…a vicious circle.
    Little by little…result by result this season, will, like last, gain us confidence and morale…and obviously point’s an’ all…;0)
    Must say we look like we’re getting a useful set of lads together, with a hunger to do well, and thanks go to CH for that ! HWTL !

    Blackpool are no pushover so overconfidence by fans and players may backfire on us. Nonetheless I do feel that with our new signings we have more than an edge to win this game. Come 5pm Saturday I think we will, after a hard fought match, be holding a position in the top 8 lads.

    Without being over confident if we can’t beat Blackpool at home then we are going to struggle all season. We should go out with confidence but not over confidence. There’s an old saying in football win the battle forst then you can play football & I think that is the attitude we have shown so far this season & I don’t see that changing tomorrow. Close game for the 1st 30-40 mins then we will win by 2 or 3 goals

    Mac, you are so right. Even if we do beat Blackpool we are going to struggle this season – we’re still an ex Fizzy team and ex-Fizzy teams struggle.

    Three difficult points we must win.

    It looks a little bit difficult but its at St.James Park where we haven’t lost in a long time and won’t loose again. Easy win for me.
