Captain Fab Coloccini had the courage to face the press after the game today, and he admitted that although the score-line was better – the performance itself was no better than that against Southampton and Manchester United, when we were slammed 4-0.
Fab Coloccini – we didn’t play well
This is what Colo said after the game today, our fourth successive defeat:
“We are very disappointed because we came into this from three games where we did not play well, and then today we didn’t play well again,”
“It may have been a better scoreline but it was not a better performance than Southampton and Manchester United.”
“They were lucky with the goal they scored but we lost again and it is not good enough. We have to improve and do that quickly before the end of the season.”
“We know we have achieved our objective of finishing in the top ten, but we are playing with the Newcastle United shirt on, and we have to have respect for that.”
“We are trying. We are trying to win every game, of course we are.” “We have to play with pride for this Club and for the fans.”
That’s a good last line there from the captain, but it just seems the players have not been putting their hearts into the performances over the last several weeks – that’s what’s been so disappointing and frustrating.
We need to beat Swansea next Saturday and thinks will feel a lot better.
