News About Coloccini Today – Maybe Out For Just One Game?

Newcastle received some good press for their 3-1 win at The Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon, especially for their fantastic first half performance of fast, skillful and  attacking football.

Coloccini congratulates Cisse on Sunday

Of course everything is never perfect, and we lost Fabricio Coloccini at half time with a hamstring injury.

The influential Newcastle captain could miss up to four games, according to manager Alan Pardew immediately after the game,  after the Newcastle medics took a look at the Argentine’s injury.

But we will know more today,  after Fab gets a scan that will tell the extent of the damage to his hamstring.

This is what Coloccini said last yesterday about the injury:

“I don’t know how bad it is yet. I have a scan on Tuesday. Maybe I will miss the Liverpool game. If it’s a little strain, it will be 10 days.”

“I don’t want to take a risk. Maybe I will get a worse injury if I take a risk and could be out for three or four weeks.”

“In the last five or six games we haven’t played well, but it was a great victory at West Brom.”  “I think we’re getting back to our best.”

If it’s only a little strain then maybe Liverpool is the only match he misses, and that would certainly be great news for Alan Pardew and the Newcastle fans.

Our next four league games are at home to Liverpool, away at Swansea, at home to Bolton and then on the road at Chelsea, so there are some testing games coming up.

Fab will not play on Sunday against The Reds, and James Perch will go in alongside Mike Williamson at the back, and if  the former Nottingham Forest defender plays like he did in that second half on Sunday, Newcastle should have no worries.

James is carving out a niche at Newcatsle as a good player who can play at center-back, at full-back and in defensive midfield, which could even be his best p[ostion.

The 25 year-old is making a fine contribution this year to Newcastle, and all credit to him for that.

We’ll be awaiting the news on Coloccini later today, and hoping for the very best.

    I could not understand, in the WBA game, why they persevered until half time. He could easily have made it worse hence missing more games. Surely he should have gone down and allowed the physio to come on and assess it.

    Martoon.I thought that too. I think I remember the commentator saying it looked like Colo wanted off right then, but Pardew wanted to wait until half time. I understand wanting to wait and assess if he could shake it off for the second half, but hope it hasn’t made things worse.
