What’s Happening With Coloccini’s New Contract?


Captain Fabricio Coloccini put in another  terrific performance for Newcastle in Wednesday’s great 3-0 win over Manchester United.

Fabricio Coloccini in action on Wednesday evening

And it was really good to see Newcastle so strong in the middle of their defense again, as Mike Williamson again showed what a terrific acquisition he has been for just £1M from Portsmouth two years ago.

Mike is one of the few who has shown he can make the step up in class, and he’s improved a lot in the Premier League.

At the moment we are interested in keeping the very good players we have at the club, and in Krul, Coloccini, Tiote, Cabaye and Demba Ba are as good as you get in the Premier League.

We are a little concerned that we may still lose Tiote and the fact we are supposedly after French central midfielder Benjamin Corgnet may be the player who is brought in if we do lose the Ivory  Coast International.

One of our top players, Coloccini, is still in negotiations with Newcastle on a new contract and surely it has to be of the highest priority  to get this man signed up for the next several years at Newcastle.

In the last couple of seasons Fabricio has proved he is now a top class Premier League center-back,  after having a tough time of things in his very first season at the club.

But Coloccini, like his Argentine colleague Jonas Gutierrez were loyal to Newcastle as they helped us get straight back to the Premier League, after we were relegated in 2009, and we’ll always remember that.

We have to hope we’ll be able to keep Fab, who had this to say about the game on Wednesday night:

“To play so well against a team that is full of top class players like Rooney, Ferdinand and Giggs meant a lot to us and that is perhaps why it was our best game of the campaign so far,”

“To beat Man United was always going to be special and for me, it was one of the best games I’ve played in since I arrived in England,  and it is right up there with our derby win over Sunderland last season.”

“It sends out a good message and lets the teams around us in the table know that we are capable of putting in performances like that. There have been some strange results around lately and it was good to take advantage of that..”

We also wonder what’s going on with Danny Guthrie’s contract negotiations, because he becomes a free agent at the end of June, when his four year deal at Newcastle will run out.

But maybe Newcastle will let Danny leave the club in the summer, and that’s why we are looking at other central midfielders like Corgnet, but Danny has shown he can be a very good player for Newcastle,  when he gets a run of games as he did late last year.

Danny Simpson is another one who has so far refused to sign a new deal, and those negotiations will not start again until the summer, or so we are told.

But if Newcastle cannot come to an agreement with the former Manchester United player, don’t be surprised if we sell him in the summer and bring in another top full-back.

Danny showed again on Wednesday night that he continues to improve in a black and white strip,  and it was great to see the banter between Tim Krul and Danny after the final whistle, when they were laughing away and seemingly discussing how Danny had again managed to clear off the line, this time from Wayne Rooney.

We’d love for Danny to stay on Tyneside, and we’ve just seen there’s some late-breaking (good) news in the Evening Chronicle today,  that Danny’s on the verge of signing a new deal.

That would be great.

    Guthrie is too smart to stay and playing 2nd fiddle, perhaps even too good. If we were using a rotation system, he’d still be here.
    When it comes to Collo, will be a bloody shame if he doesn’t sign, he’s been here through thick and thin, but Pardew said that hopefully something would be sorted at the end of January.
    So we’ll see.

    @Dannyo – What would you do if you were Guthrie.
    Stay and fight for you place at NUFC?
    Or move on to Villa or QPR?

    Gotta be honest I’ve never been a Simpson fan like.

    He’s Improved a bit this season.

    But I would rather sign another left back & Play Santon right back.

    Sorry Simmo… Haha

    Lol, it had to be those teams didn’t it 😉
    Well, if i was in Guthries body with my own brains, i’d be likely to move. I’d knew there was HBA, Tiote and Cabaye to play infront of me, I’d have Abeid, Vuckic and at later stages Campbell.
    Tbh, i might try to get myself to Swans. They play good passing footy that would suit me perfectly, seems to have a decent manager who likes to rotate the midfield.
    None there i’d be “afraid” of except maybe Britton.

    I think i’d push for that, otherwise i’d might stay.

    I really wanted a replacement for Simmo over the summer. Like Pieters and Santon in but I have confidence in his ability now. His style of play can be frustrating to watch because it doesnt appear like he is doing much but im sure if he was injured he would be missed greatly. His defensive decisions are at times like chess moves. He actually clearly puts a lot of thought into it and that makes him very consistent.

    That’s what i’m guessing mate, we’re only preparing for Guthrie to leave if we are to sign a midfielder.

    @Belfast
    Have to agree with you mate, there are quite a few better RBs out there that we could grab. Have to say tho, Simmo has been great value for money.

    Dannyo – Whenever one of our players his linked with a move away, its always the usual suspects that are named 🙂
    Would love him to stay and fight for his place, just hope its for that reason and not cause someone will be moved out either now or in the summer

    If we dont lose Demba and sign a new striker in summer and HBA comes through then i would be really surprised if we still had Best next season.

    personally wonder whether he can deal with competition for his place though. He always looks best (no pun intended) when he is covering for an injured striker or when we sold ours.

    Mind you i wouldnt blame him for low moral having to try competing for one spot with Demba atm

    His defending has defo Improved like,but he never looks comfortable on the ball going forward.

    I would say the reason he was offered a better deal was becasue we couldn’t get somebody who was cheaper.lol

    Not the best crosser off a ball either…

    If Guthrie isn’t signing a new contract we should try sell him back to Liverpool in january, he’s English isn’t he? I’m sure they’d pay between £20-25 million for him! Ha

    I think KK foresaw what talent Guthrie had and what he could do in the same role as Cabaye. He’s shown to be no lesser when he’s been on the pitch this season.
    He genuinly hope he signs as for me, he’s a direct swap for Cabs. Very good and underrated player.

    Agreed mate, all i came on for twitter was the transfer window in the summer, never tried it before then, stayed on ever since.
    Have to say tho, Pierce Morgan and Michael Owen going at eachother is hillarious.
    Pierce demolished Owen in every sense.

    im prepared to get shit down for this but id put Simpson as the second best right back England have got. Behind Richards but ahead of Kyle Walker, dont rate Walker good at going forward but rubbish at defending look at his performance at SJP he was at fault for both our goals 😀 also Simpson has improved a lot from last season

    Angryman the Angry fan (from last topic)

    Dont get me wrong. Im not supporting MA at all. I just dont see the issue as black and white (not that you do either) but more a shade of grey.

    It’s all fair wanting to build a club through cheap canny signings and selling them for a profit at least 50% of that profit on transfers should be reinvested for the next “stock”.

    Also there has to be that point somewhere down the line when revenue streams and performance is at the level where we need to actually turn around and say “no we are keeping this key player and we’ll sell him when he is say 28/9 still at a profit but still allowing us to move forward”

    I will be very p155ed if we get to the summer and all of our key players are sold on. Because that will show no ambition. But if it is a case of we’ll only sell 1 for the benefit of the overall team then fair enough.

    I guess what im saying is, MA has so far pulled it off this season after the summer. And i will hold off on the stone throwing and try to believe it is part of a plan but 1/5years down the line if there appears to be no apparent plan then I will don the chain mail and be baying for blood
