Wise Words From The Newcastle Captain


The Newcastle captain Fab Coloccini has been interviewed for the match day program notes for tomorrow’s game against Aston Villa.

Fabricio Coloccini – will return tomorrow

The Argentine International injured his knee in the 1-0 defeat at West Brom, and that was only minutes after Mathieu Debuchy had been sent off, and was subsequently suspended for the next three games.

Colo seems delighted to be back tomorrow, and like a true leader – he is only looking forward to what’s possible now for Newcastle United:

“After seven weeks out it is nice to finally be back.” “I have been injured since New Year’s Day and, during that time, it has been very difficult to watch the team’s performances and results without being able to do anything about it.”

“You want to help your teammates but you can do nothing and it gets very frustrating.” “But I am just pleased to be back now.” 

“It means that I can do my best on the training pitch and in matches to help the team and hopefully get us winning games again.”

“In every season, there are good times and bad times but we are a good team full of good players and we have to keep working hard and remain positive.”

“It does not help to spend too much time thinking about matches that have now gone. Instead, we have to look at the ones in front of us.”

“The final 12 games of the season – and try to start picking up points again.” “That begins against Aston Villa.”

Those are good and positive words from Colo, who may even be leaving Newcastle this summer, but it’s been proven time and again that Newcastle are a much better side when Colo is in the team.

And he’s in the team tomorrow, and a win is what we need to raise the spirits of Geordie supporters everywhere – and we could get it too.

Howay The Lads!!

    JFK did the job he was told todo, if Ashley want more he would not let JFK sell him

    JFK was here to make sure we did not spend, job done

    if you want to go down the road of want was printed, to journos printed pretty much the same story , JFK was there to make Pardews life hard

    you chose to believe what you want

    Just thinking Ben Arfa, Cisse, Coloccini, Marveaux will leave in the summer, possibly Debuchy. Remy will go to one of the top 4 teams. What will that leave us with? Tiote, Gourffan, Krul and Sissoko top 6 premier league standard, the rest Crystal Palace at best. Might sign 3 players(1 being that useless player we already have called De Jong), maybe a few or 2 and that is it. See you Championship in 2015

    Also, worth noting that I’m not interested in finances, but have had to take a cursory interest to refute some of the ludicrous claims made by Ashley apologists. All in the name of helping change perceptions of Ashley as our ‘saviour’

    I’m a football fan, first and foremost. The development of women’s football, and grass-roots football in the north-east is also something I am all for supporting.

    Do you have a problem with this or do you wish to silence me simply because I disagree with you?

    Niafron, thanks for shedding more detailed light on the great Hatem debate.

    In my opinion, it is a footballing crime that someone with his talent can be left out and scapegoated. Especially when the manager is as ill equipped as Pardew to get the best out of him.

    Like I said, I’m sure that in a Martinez team, he would be sublime.

    It’s funny about his work rate… in a negative and defensive team of course he’ll be demotivated to work and press. His motivation is to attack and enjoy the game. The opposite of the way Alan Pardew does things.

    He is a waste product of a negative system and cluess offensive coach.

    Ashley was ranked 25th richest man in the UK, when he bought Newcastle United, now he’s ranked 15th richest man in the UK. Ashley needs to spend big bucks and peddle poodle Pardew.

    Front three of Remy De Jong and Gouffran
    or a 4-4-2 of Gouffran SIssoko wing, Anita Tiote CM and Remy De Jong up top?

    Coloccini should be made into a defensive midfielder, he’s to slow,lacks aerial ability and presence. Wot he does offer is a very good reading of the game, a decent pass and leadership. But Pardew doesn’t have the brains to make him more advance.

    Also Pardew should be moving ben arfa into a striker role where we are very thin. Where he can’t get blamed for lack of tracking back.

    I’m sure both of these guys will be happy with a more advanced roles, but Pardew is to clueless!!

    Would anybody take back Chris Hughton??

    I know we would have loved him here once at a point, but with his current record at norwich bein poor, I think it will make an interesting question.

    Jesper, yes. Especially as Niafron has followed him closely for his entire career.

    The lad is a glorious talent, but he needs an attacking team to show him at his best. A negative team will bring out his worst.

    Hatem is one of my favourite players of all time. He can do things with a football which only a few people in the world can do. To me, that should be valued and pressed to get the best out of him.

    Under the system which Pardew brings, he’s not in a good environment.

    Wenger used Pires for his attacking strengths and got his rewards. The other players did the defensive work that he couldn’t/didn’t want to, because they knew it helped the team get points from his product.

    Just watching the Arsenal versus Mackems game and I am loving every minute of it they are getting spanked hope City do the same and they get relegated !!!!

    Really really worried about 2moro’s game its live on Sky and if we fall too bits after Pardew makes changes then Pardew needs to go

    I think a few players need dropped (Santon and Taylor especially )and we need a shake up I would go for this team

    433 :

    Krul
    Debs
    Colo
    Willamson
    Haidara or Dummett
    Anita CM
    Tiote CM
    Sissoko CM
    Remy LF
    Gouffran RF
    De Jong CF

    Would also look to drop Sissoko as well cause he has been poor but Pardew will not drop him he is much better on the right wing but with Cabaye gone Pardew will try make him a no10

    Would quite like Armstrong and Sammy to get a bit more game time as well but the front 3 I have picked could do some damage

    Maybe we’ll get Gomis in the summer. Ashley must consider, he will be a free transfer.

    Laurent …Benny of course need to shoulder some part of the blame, but the way we play would make any offensive minded lad look bad!

    …it is like highlighting a player weak points and just put em’ out there for everyone to see.

    But my biggest problem with Pardew is his consistent habit a blaming everyone else than himself and his inability to play to the strength of his team.

    If he is loosing face he will bench the player, make him train with the U-18 or talk about in public. He is a weak man if you ask me! It is rather sad really.

    Personally mate I think Benny has had chance after chance to prove himself. This is his 4th season with nufc now and apart from the odd wonder goal what has he done. Granted a gifted player but has more bad games than good
