Jack Colback has looked good so far in pre-season games, and he had a good game yesterday down under, and Jack adds enthusiasm and a hard work ethic to the side, and of course the local lad from Killingworth always gives 100% all the time.
Jack Colback – in action against Sydney yesterday
Jack has talked today about what he sees as an ambitious club at Newcastle, something presumably he didn’t see at Sunderland, who have struggled mightily against relegation for the last two seasons.
And the Black Cats looked almost certain to go down last season with six games to go – before they made a remarkable recovery with some great results at Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United to take them clear of the relegation zone with 13 points in those last 6 league games – and Jack played in all those vital games.
This is what Jack has said in the Sun today about what he sees as Newcastle’s ambition:
“It is important in every player’s career to play at as high a level as you can, at Newcastle I have got a chance to be part of a team really looking to go places.
“Ask the manager and he will tell you he’s looking to really go for it this season and trying to push Newcastle to where we should be – high up the table.
“Alan Pardew has brought in some quality players to add to the quality that was already in the squad. Siem De Jong on particular looks really high quality in training,his finishing is brilliant and he looks a class act.”
We didn’t think Jack would get a starting position at Newcastle for next season, although because of his versatility and consistency he would still get a lot of playing time.
But nobody told Jack that, and he’s going all out to get that starting place at Newcastle, and as a free agent from Sunderland, he’s already looking to be a very good acquisition for us.
