It was surprising to Newcastle fans that Alan Pardew knew nothing about Fab Coloccini’s comments last week on an Argentine web-site, where he again said he would like to leave Newcastle as soon as possible, to return to Argentina, where his family is now living.
Coloccini congratulates Gouffran after Newcastle’s second goal Saturday
But the news today is that Newcastle will seek to clarify the situation with Coloccini, about those comments, and of course the last thing we want is for another stand-off in January, like we had last January.
The 38 times capped Argentine International stated he would play for Newcastle this season, and we expect him to keep that promise, and that’s especially true with Newcastle starting to play well and moving up the table.
While we only moved up one place into 8th position after the weekend;s games, we are now only 2 points out of 4th place, and another win against West Brom and we could be even higher up the league table, but we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves either.
Colo had a decent game on Saturday, after he had been back into the side, but was at fault for Leroy Fer’s goal after 80 minutes, when the Dutch International, who Newcastle were interested in over the last year, out-jumped the Argentine to set up a difficult last 10 minutes for Newcastle.
We have to hope Newcastle sort this Coloccini situation out as soon as possible, with a good positive outcome..
