Newcastle will likely have three of the big guns back for tomorrow’s game, with Fabricio Coloccini set to return to central defense with Steven Taylor, and Tim Krul is expected to return between the sticks for Newcastle at the Stadium of Light.
Fab Coloccini in lime green strip Newcastle will wear tomorrow
It will be great to have all three back, and we look to captain Coloccini to be a real steadying influence for Newcastle in tomorrow’s game, and there’s no doubt we’ve missed all three players in the last few games, and our mediocre results reflect that.
The Argentine International has now fully recovered from his hamstring problem, which he picked up while with the Argentine squad in South America.
Alan Pardew is very pleased to have his captain back, as he had this to say in the local press today:.
“He often brings a calmness to our team – at half-time too.” “As I say I am absolutely delighted he’s fit and ready.” “I can see a renewed figure in him.” “His season has been disrupted with injury.”
“He got back in the Argentina team and then suffered nothing but injury.” “I can see he is desperate to get going.” “We have been buoyed by the players and particularly the captain’s return.”
“He will play tomorrow. He’s an important player for us, not just his name on the team sheet, but in games.” “We’ve been crying out for somebody to put their foot on the ball and control the game.”
“We’ve needed somebody to bring some intelligence to our play and he does that.” “I think the team look to him as a steadying kind of influential character.” “We all do. I can’t wait to give him the armband.”
Alan Pardew seemed in upbeat mood during his press conference yesterday, and he’s no doubt buoyed by the return of three of Newcastle’s very best players in Colo, Steven Taylor and Tim Krul.
No all we have to do tomorrow is to get all 3 points!
Howay The Lads!!
