Coloccini – Bad Feelings, Frustration And Anger After Defeat

The Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini has come out and told his team that we cannot have another season fighting relegation, but if mistakes are made like they were made against Hull City on Saturday, then that’s what could happen.

Fabricio Coloccini – angry at what happened

Colo has revealed there was a lot of anger and frustration in the dressing room after the 3-2 defeat to Hull, and some schoolboy defending from Newcastle  gifted Hull City all of their three goals.

So what should have been a  fairly comfortable win, with Newcastle twice going ahead in the game though Loic Remy,  turned out to be a shocking defeat at home.

This is what Colo told the local papers:

“There were bad feelings – frustration, anger, and everything you’d expect.” “It’s difficult to speak about it because a lot of things happened on the pitch that I’m angry about.”

“We had a great, great chance to take three more points at home against a newly promoted team. It was a great opportunity. If we want to be serious about being in the top 10, or look to bigger things in the Premier League, we have to start to take the chances we have.”

“If not, we’re going to have problems. We do not want to be like we were last season.”  “We ended the season fighting against relegation, and we can’t have that again. So we have to look at our mistakes and keep going.”  “When we have chances to beat teams like Hull, we have to take them.”

Newcastle now play Leeds United in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night at home, and that’s the first opportunity to put things right, although we expect to see players like Elliot, Williamson, Dummett, Gosling, Gouffran, Tiote and Sammy Ameobi all get starts in this game.

Then we have a tough game at Everton next Monday night, but we have to improve our performance over last Saturday, otherwise we will have no chance of picking up anything at Goodison Park.

The next few games will be an important period for this Newcastle team.

    Santon as RW can give more cover than HBA can give for RB. I would rather play HBA as 2nd striker than LW, HBA will give no cover for LB.
    Whoever play RB will be exposed as 2 vs 1 if HBA playing RW, and Debuchy is not that great. The goals are the results of Hull attacking our right side. Remy and Gouffran gave good cover for Santon.

    I see Debuchy similar to Perch at first season back to EPL. I don’t know if he will become good RB or not in the future.

    Ashley… Show some ambition and sack Pardew. That will do it for the short term.
    Then you sell up and I will be a happy camper again.

    An average owner and a poor manager is ruining the soul of our club. Again there is talk about the lack of atmosphere at SJP, and that is really what breaks my heart.

    If you want attacking full backs, then they will go forward leaving their positions. I can’t see how they can join attack and maintain their defensive position unless you cloned them or stop time. When they go forward and the opponent got the ball and hit long, it’s like less than 1 second, I can’t see anyone running 20 to 30 meters within 1 second.

    I don’t mind them getting caught out the odd time when they attack, that happens with the way fullbacks play now

    What annoys me a lot is often how slowly they stroll back and also that when they are back they often just stand in the wrong place.

    Look at leighton baines, gets involved with most attacks and still manages to be back in a good defensive position a lot of the time. Obviously gets caught out every now and then but no where near as much as santon and debuchy.

    None of our defenders have a clue about positioning (except colo, but not all the time)….they just constantly are in the wrong place.

    same as our attacking players.

    Either we have a squad full of duds or we have a terrible tactician in charge or both.

    I reckon the players are very unfit just look at the size of ben arfa he needs to shred 2 stone and quick, the rest of them couldnt run after toddlers at a day centre for kids there that unfit

    about the full backs drop both and id drop cissie as well hes had long enough mind if the team isnt creating chances then he cant take them can he just I think his ex has a lot to do with the way hes playing at the minute but both our full backs are nightmares at the minute

    That’s the difference between Everton and us. When they lose the ball and FB are out of positions, they have wingers or DM covering or give them enough time get back. If you noticed when one of our FB attacking, there is a big hole on their side and opponents running to that side. It’s different with Everton, if Baines go forward they will have someone behind Baines, so it’s not big empty space. Well.. it’s not only Everton, most of the teams are like that (good teams).

    We showed Hull too much respect, and just stopped playing after going 1-0 up ! Where have we seen that before?

    Collo is right! Instead of felling sorry for ourselves the best way to recover is to just pick ourselves up, and beat Leeds on Wednesday!

    Then three points at Goodison next Monday !

    It could be worse, we could be favourites to go down like the Scum! Thing is, one of Di Canio, s first games last year as their trainer was against us? And i still have nightmares about that game!

    If they get a half decent trainer, in charge, when they play us in a few weeks we could get beaten again? Perish the thought!
