If Fabricio Coloccini keeps putting performances in for Newcastle, like he did yesterday, and has done so consistently over the last few weeks, then we’ll have to announce that this Argentine, who was 29 yesterday, is truly a Premier League class player.
Fabricio Coloccini – after scoring brilliantly yesterday – yes!!!!!
Coloccini was again a mountain at the back for Newcastle yesterday, against one of the top sides in England.
And after 59 minutes he even managed to score a superb individual goal, as he showed our strikers how to do it, when he rifled the ball into the back of the net – and then went wild, along with the Newcastle United fans.
And there’s little doubt that new manager Alan Pardew is already a big fan of the 34 times capped Argentine International, who was playing for the 100th time for the famous Newcastle United club.
Alan talked about Fabricio after the game:
“I thought he was the stand out player today, he was brilliant in everything he did,”
Fab Coloccini is leading our Man of the Match poll yesterday with a massive 72% of the poll.
And he is followed by his countryman, Jonas Gutierrez, who had a tremendous battle with Scottish International Alan Hutton yesterday, and put in a very good shift.
If you haven’t voted in our poll, you can still do so on our home page.
It’s great to have guys like Coloccini and Gutierrez at the Newcastle club.
