Coloccini – We Have Some Good Men At Newcastle


Since Fab Coloccini was appointed the Newcastle captain in early July, he has been in the best form of his career at Newcastle.

Coloccini  – the Newcastle captain in training

And Fabricio sets a great example at the back,  for the rest of the Newcastle players, and he gives  100% in every game and on the training field too.

Coloccini has led Newcastle to the heady heights of 4th place in the Premier League, and the team is currently above Liverpool and Tottenham, and he says the dressing room at Newcastle is very good at the moment.

Last Saturday Demba Ba scored his first goals for the club with a great hat-trick,  and Hatem Ben Arfa made his long awaited return to St. James’ Park, after his horrible double leg break of last October.

Coloccini is a bit of a folk hero on Tyneside, and certainly his captaincy was met with great applause from the Newcastle fans, with 93 % in our poll approving of his appointment as the new Newcastle captain.

And the Argentine International is enjoying his football at the moment, as a lot of  other Newcastle players seem to be:

“I’m really enjoying this season – more than other years,” “There have been a lot of changes, and we’re playing more football than in other years. On the pitch, we’re enjoying it more.”

“We have a good changing room, a good squad and good men.” “I think when you build a team, you have to build it with good men, and I think here there are a lot of good players, and more importantly good men.”

“If we can continue to take three points, it’s going to be difficult for other teams to come to St James’s Park.”

One pleasing thing about this season is the lads have won two and drawn one (against Arsenal) of their three league games at home, so far this season.

That’s certainly a nice change from last season when Newcastle had just been beaten 2-0 by Blackpool, who were eventually relegated back to the Championship, and indeed, Blackpool took 4 points from Newcastle, and almost achieved the double over the Magpies.

Let’s hope the lads can continue to pick up lots of points at home this season, and yes,  it’s a cliche – but let’s make the place a fortress again.

Next Saturday brings a tough trip to Wolves at Molineaux, and Alan Pardew will be putting together a game plan this week, that will try to take all 3 points at Wolves.

If Newcastle can beat Wolves on Saturday, then things will really be buzzing on Tyneside, and even more so than they are right now.

    I get feeling certain recent departures aren’t missed too much in the dressing room, e.g. Barton. Played some great football, but we are doing just fine without him. Looks like that team are loving playing together, from Jnr to Snr level. Refreshingly free of over-paid egotistical under-performers, for a change!
