Newcastle Will Investigate Coloccini Quotes About Leaving

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..

    @1 himanshu

    i agree.
    his performances arnt great and he has lot a lot of pace that even his reading of the game can no longer compensate for and i think he’s noticed before we have hence he wants to move to a lighter league to still be a star in his own right.

    willo/mbiwa are my personal 1st choices atm anyway but i do admit he is my 3rd choice over saylor so i would love either another cb in replacement for him or curtis to come through very fast.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if this is old news being brought up as new, saying that so what if he wants to return home – he’ll need someone to pay at least 5 million for him though

    I guess Jonas could be off in Jan/summer then – can’t see him getting back in the team ahead of Gouffran who has more in his locker as well as the ability to attack and defend as well as the ability to score goals (6 in 27 games) compared to Jonas 10 in 177 games!

    If Collo goes we need an upgrade on Staylor – we need to keep Willo on his toes before he reverts to type and starts making some howlers

    Fellow bloggers

    Agree that the blog is going through a dip in form – inexplicable maybe but possibly down to a sense of acceptance we are not even going to try to scale the heights and are wedged somewhere between 5th and 16th.
    It is down to us to change that…to make a reason for posting..
    So without any rational chance of optimisim – here’s to a good run in the FA Cup by the way.
    The aggressive spiky intolerant posters put me off as they take themselves and their opinions far too seriously. OV was fun and funny – and at least a year ago we could hope we possibly might, in the fullness of time, conceivably, eventually have an owner who wanted us to go for CL on a regular basis – not by a massive Citeh type investment but bit by bit, by shrewd buying and selling, not selling Granny on Northumberland St or buying any more prima donnas.
    But aim high all the same – not aim for 10th. Aim for Europe Mr Ashley and aim for a CUP win.

    And the MAshley bean counter model has worked so far – very up and down on the field and with insufficient charisma from the top of the food chain – but we are stable, playing a mix of inspired and dull football ; brilliant tactically and boring no-lose; committed and lack lustre; so there is everything and nothing to complain about or praise. We are almost rudderless – not consistent enough to challenge for two halves in the same game – but so close to being a respected footballing side. So why bother posting ?
    The lack of real trust or hope in manager, DOF and owner is still there – though they are probably doing their best in a plodding kind of way but without “hwyl”. For those non very few Welsh Geordies this means, passion, a stirring feeling of emotional motivation and energy, heart and soul. Which is why the Toon is such a special place to be and support.
    We can be angry and disgusted (whatever did happen to Angry Man?) but where is the passion and fantastic humour on this blog any more ? The banter quotient has been hoovered, dehydrated.
    Well imo it has been sucked out of us by the lack of ambition the club is showing and the sanctimonious few.

    Mes blogger amis – let’s have more banter, more goodwill between fans, more strong views expressed with passion and humour, fewer slagging offs, less oversensitivity, more well argued analysis, less opinion masquerading as fact. More tolerance even..
    We can’t do that much to change the club’s mindset but we can keep ‘ownership’ of the club – which will survive the current regime and may be one day bring dazzling football more often than not and even dare one say it… silverware engraved with the name Newcastle United Football CLub WINNER

    If Colo is already voicing a need to leave then his mind will continue to be elsewhere. I don’t see how his club in Argentina will be able to afford his transfer fee or wages. But, if his heart is elsewhere he needs to go!
