Coloccini – We Must Win At Home And Improve As A Team


We must say we’ve been impressed with  the way Fab Coloccini has captained the Newcastle  since he took over at the start of last season, afer Kevin Nolan left for pastures anew and a long term contract at West Ham.

Coloccini – Newcastle must improve as a team

Fabricio is a great guy, but he’s also  a good leader and leads by example, and he’s also one of Newcatsle best players and most consistent performers.

And when he speaks, he’s usally measured in what he says, and this is what he had to say on  the Newcastle web-site today:

“We lost two points because we were at home, and when we are at our stadium then we have to take three points, especially against teams like Aston Villa.”  “We will take a point and maybe at the end of the season it will prove to be a very important point. It could be a nice point for us.”

“Hatem’s goal was great – that is what happens when you have good players like that because in one moment he can change the game. We should have maybe gone on to win, but this happens in football.”

“It is not about the players, however, it is about the team and we have to improve.” “If we want to have as good a season as last year then we have to get much better.”  “We have got some tough games and months ahead of us and it is important that we get back to where we know we can be.”

“The squad is quite stretched because we now have Danny Simpson injured, as well as Shola Ameobi, Ryan Taylor, James Perch and Cheick Tiote.”  “These two weeks are going to hopefully be good for some of the players to come back.”

The international break gives some of Newcastle’s players two weeks to recover from their injuries,  and it’s hoped we can have Cheick Tiote, Shola Ameobi and maybe James Perch back fit again and available for the game at Goodison Park two weeks tonight.

Coloccini has again been included in the Argentine squad, and since he’s fit this time,  we expect to increase the 34 caps he already has for his country.

Maybe he would also make a good capain of Argentina?

Comments welcome.

    Been a great player for us and love it when he goes forward, that ball from Ba (I think) was terrible when Colo had a chance to run in on goal.

    For some strange reason, I don’t think Messi will lose his Captainship… 😛

    well after a few hours away i came back to check opinions and now there seems to be debate over true fan.
    this is one thing i can’t stand because if you someone like myself who has disabilities that prevent me getting a job how can i manage to go and watch a football match when i only have 50 pound a week to live off after bills are paid. what i would say proves a fan is when you ask people about even the most recent of things and how did the teams most likely to challenge them for positions did because if in second they can’t answer it then that should be enough to prove if they a fan or not i myself have followed them so closly since the robson era when i was still 14 and now my bedroom has almost everything newcastle wallpaper curtain bedding a autograph shirt which includes the likes of shearer solano and given plus i even went to watch the testermonial of shearer himself.

    i been thinking in the last hour all this debate over wether pardew is good tactics or bad
    we can all disagree with one another with his formation but what i think everyone surely must agree with is
    the timing of his subs ATM.

    If we have any French toon fans here that live anywhere close to Paris, you should go and welcome this Josh guy who is running from London to Paris in 7 days.
    Impressive, now I need to find my visa.
    For the fan that lives on 50 quid a week, indeed, it is how much you are into it.
    Personally I live in Montreal in Canada and hope to make it to Newcastle in November to catch a game. I have never seen them play live, but like you, I spend a lot of time following the team and what happens around the club. And I can tell you that it will be like a dream seeing the team walking in on St James’.
