Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini has come out in the program notes for tomorrow’s game, and has asked the Newcastle fans to support the team against Hull City.
Fabricio Coloccini – asks for support from fans
It’s interesting that Alan Pardew has not come out and asked for the support of the fans, and we think it’s no coincidence that it’s Colo asking for the support tomorrow.
With the demonstrations against Pardew planned for tomorrow, it could have had little impact if it was the manager himself who asked for the fans’ support.
This is what Colo has said in his program notes directly to the fans:
“It will not be an easy game because Hull are a good team. It is very important that you are right behind us and support the team and the players who are on the pitch.¨
¨We need your support. We have a lot of new players and a young squad.¨ “They need your backing, a push from you and a positive atmosphere to get the best out of them.¨ “Hopefully, you can cheer us on to three points and that will give our season a real boost.”
“You want to win every game, just like us, and we all want the best for this football club.¨ “We are football fans too, so we understand that things can get frustrating.”
“But please, support the team for 90 minutes inside the stadium. We need your support.”
It will be interesting to see whether fans at the game give the players their support – but we’re sure they will be there supporting the players, as always, and it’s the manager and even the owner, who the fans want out of the club.
But the environment that will be created by the protesting fans will be a negative one for the players – there’s little doubt about that.
It would be against the odds if Newcastle can win this game tomorrow.
