Top Player – Why I Have To Do Well At Newcastle

9:31 am, Saturday, April 5th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 2 Comments

Fabricio Coloccini has been called up for the Argentine side a couple of times this season,  and each time he cane back injured, much like it seems that Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy came back on March 6th crocked, after playing for France in the 2-0 friendly win against Holland, and so far the two Frenchmen have missed the last four games. :(

Fab Coloccini - has to play well for Newcastle

But Coloccini says he has to play well for Newcastle if he is to get into the World Cup squad, which he made back in 2006 in Germany while at Deportivo,  but surprisingly missed out last time for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

This is what Coloccini has told the Shields Gazette today:

“Of course, I think about the World Cup,” “But I’m focused here, because if I’m not playing well for Newcastle United, I can’t go to the World Cup.”

“The World Cup is my dream, but I have to do well here.” “When you give everything, and you play well, you can relax on your holidays.”

“But if you don’t play, or maybe you don’t work hard, then you think ‘I could have done better’ on your holidays.”

Notice that Colo says he has to play well to make the World Cup, and nowhere there does he say he’s not playing well at the moment for Newcastle.

In fact we think Colo will make the Argentine squad this time around, at least we hope he does.

We need Colo to have a  stellar game at the back for the Magpies today against the Red Devils, if we are to get anything at all out of this game.

And if Manchester United do score first, there’s then a decent likelihood that we’ll lose the game, because of our inability to score goals with Loic Remy not in the side.

What do you think?

    When your team is based round containment and individual goals, the long term drain on players’ enthusiasm and belief should not be underestimated.

    As Hoddle even said on the tv, as much as football is a business, it is also an entertainment business.
