Alan Pardew has talked a little about Fab Coloccini’s personal situation and he has said the situation was delicate and that he wouldn’t want anybody to be in Colo’s situation. Alan Pardew has been trying to talk his captain into staying at Newcastle for the last few weeks, and he finally did that yesterday after long one on one talks with his captain – but the manager seems to also want fans to know that Coloccini’s personal situation is a very difficult one for anybody to handle.
The Newcastle manager with his captain
This is what Alan Pardew has told the local papers today:
“His reaction on the training ground has been brilliant – almost like he’s accepted it himself.” “Perhaps he was questioning himself but maybe now he’s answered it.” “I thought I could lose him.” “The personal issue he had, it’s delicate.”
“It’s not nice and I wouldn’t want anybody to be in that position.” “He’s such a brilliant guy and man, and now he’s going to help us.”
Those words from Pardew will help the fans support the Newcastle captain through his personal troubles – and we’re hoping we can get only our third win in 14 league games on Tuesday night and then Newcastle will return to face the European Champions next Saturday.
And we want to see a much better display than the lads served up against Reading, last time out at St. James’ Park.
And we also expect St. James’ Park to be sold out for the Chelsea game.
Howay The Lads!!
