Coloccini Meeting Delayed Until Monday – Will Play Saturday


It looks like Fabricio Coloccini has not played his last game for Newcastle – well not yet anyway. It seems that the meeting that was to take place today has now been delayed until Monday, according to the Evening Chronicle who quote Colo’s friends as the source of that information.

Fabricio Coloccini – meeting now on Monday

So we’re still not sure which way this thing will go,  but San Lorenzo wanted a decision this week, or else they said they would move on to other plans.  And it seems the rumors that he will leave this week have been denied bu the club – so that’s good.

It seems strange to us that Argentine club San Lorenzo want him to get out of his contract,  so they can sign the player on a free transfer – but isn’t that what contracts are for – to keep the player at the club?

It’s clear that Pardew wants to keep the South American at least through the end of the season, and that would help us in our relegation battle, and also give us time in the summer to replace him with a top center-back.

But it’s all still up in the air – but at least Colo will be playing against Reading on Saturday – so that’s some good news.

We need some of that after what’s happened this month.

    Does anyone on here remember when we signed Killer… now that’s the kind of mind set we need in a defender for the coming months.
    I remember watching him ‘introduce’ himself to the opposition’s CF at the beginning of matches… couldn’t get away with that nowadays

    Maybe I am a bit young or not familiar with the street lingo in Newcastle, but who is Killer?

    Good news!….sort of lol

    I’m with Ed.. seriously, contracts seem to be ripped to shreds easier than old mail in this game. If I cancel my contract with the cell phone company I have to pay a $600 fee!

    If I could get my own curly-haired Argentine center-half for free, I’d sign up in an instant

    Ffs indian, to accuse shola of an og, before he’s even on the pitch is rediculous. You are the most awful fan that any sport has ever had.

    @ Lyon Capital
    According to our information, the English club Newcastle have views Bafé Gomis (11 goals in 19 league games this season).
    Desiring to replace Demba Ba, transferred to Chelsea, the Magpies who come to steal to Loic Remy by Queens Park Rangers are considering making an offer to OL in the next few days.
    The Lyon striker whose market value is estimated at 10 million euros would finish the season at Lyon.

    I started to follow NUFC in ’95 so maybe that’s why I don’t remember him!

    -92-94 with 32 games under his belt.

    Taken from wiki:

    ‘When Kevin Keegan became manager of Newcastle United in 1992, “Killer”[2] Kilcline was his first signing, and was immediately installed as club captain. He became known for his hard tackling and aerial ability – he often would prefer a diving header to a volley, even for balls only half a metre off the ground. Keegan later remarked that Kilcline was the most important signing he had ever made for the club. This was echoed by fans, who considered him partially responsible for saving the club from relegation and possible bankruptcy.’

    *Respect! 🙂

    No, I’m not sholas biggest fan by any stretch, but he gets far too much stick. Indian always dumps on him, even if he has done well in a game (it does happen). He hatred of shola is psychotic!

    good old Killer, he was exactly what we needed then… and it’s the modern day equivalant that we need now. Suggestions on a postcard to:
    Mr D Lambias
    19th Hole Some Golf Course
    Down South St
    Nr London

    I’ve heard any post sent to that address will reach him straight away, until the end of January at least

    Well, we wouldn’t want to disappoint San Lorenzo now would we ? How dare we take so long to decide over our players contract when they are offering us the princely sum of £0.00. Afterall when they go after an “A” class defender we should do everything to accommodate them including tearing up the contract of a player that could potentially save us from relegation and bring in around £5m in the summer.

    Again, uncalled for, he’s been no more or less $h1t than anyone else this season so far, so he shouldn’t be singled out. People like you are the ones who, when at school, blamed the goaly for your team losing by one goal, even if they saved every other shot on target.

    I like shola….but cannot really exaplain why other than he is a local lad. He played through injuries which is credit to him but it did more harm than good as he was always average and this made him worse.

    He seems way to lazy on the pitch too.

    However he is the only player we have (other than ben arfa) who is happy to try something on his weaker foot, he is also never seems to shy away from a hard situation and often comes through at big times in games….I appreciate this about him.

    But his time is almost up.

    This Colo thing is really annoying me now.

    Why don’t we give him compassionate leave….after all that would be better as he could then spend all his time with his family back home and not worry about training and playing.

    Then he can rejoin us next season. Or it gives them a chance to sell a few players to fund the transfer in the summer.

    Also Argentina is a big place, I know his dad works at this club but is it near his where all of his family are based?

    I’m with Markaccus – Shola gets far too much stick on this blog – people forget it was his goals that helped us get back out of the championship.

    Last comment was directed at indian and dubzy, just in case darlomag thought it was for him its not :D.
    I agree he has had too many chances. He had a reasonable run of appearances and decent form near the start of this season, but as usual he’s falling back to mediocrity. He’s very much a 20 min player at best now. Only way to get the effort out of him.

    If Colo does leave, who should be captain. I think one of his weaknesses is the fact he’s ‘too nice’ on the pitch (especially now). We need someone who can really ‘lead’ out there. Tony Adams style. I don’t really see anyone in our squad willing to boss and impose

    Anyone using the mobile version of this season? Where on earth do you log in? I can’t see any options to log in even at the bottom it says “you must be” in the add comment section, but doesn’t say log in or out.

    As for Collo if it is for reasons such as his wife being I’ll then I would like to see us show some compassion but the trouble is we need one cb as it is and I feel we will be lucky to get 1. If he just wants to return to dan Lorenzo then I honestly couldn’t give a carp. It’s one thing to want to go to a different club and its anther thing to have a family member very I’ll. I guess we will know more in the next week or so. Can anyone realistically see us signing two central defenders and a striker?
