Fabricio Coloccini joined Newcastle United in August, 2008 from Deportivo for around £10.5M, and since that time he has played 222 times for Newcastle with 5 goals, and has been captain for the last three years.
Fab Coloccini – dream to win a trophy
It’s way back in 1969 that we won our last trophy, when we won the Inter-City Fairs Cup (which has transformed into the Europa League these days) – and I was at that game at St. James’ Park, so I do remember when we actually won things. 😀
Coloccini has said some interesting things today in anb interview – this is what he has told the Shields Gazette today:
“It’s very important for us, but we’re not thinking about the trophy,” “We will try to win against Man City. It’s our dream to win a trophy, but we’re not thinking about it.”
“We want to win every game. We have to have a positive mentality and try to win on Wednesday.” “I would like to play – I feel OK,” “For me, it’s an honor to be on the pitch for this club.”
“It’s difficult to play at White Hart Lane. “We should have been more aggressive in the first half. We had a good shape, but we weren’t aggressive.”
“I think, in the second half, we were more aggressive.” “Maybe we didn’t have the ball, but they didn’t create many chances.” “The chances we had, we took. That’s very good for us.”
“I think we played a really good game and had a good system. Tottenham are not easy to play away.” “I think we did the right things, and scored from the opportunities we had, which is important.”
“It’s very good that we now have many players – we have a good squad.”
“Hopefully, they will have more chances. There is the Man City game and then Liverpool.” “Hopefully, we can keep going in the cup.”
We’re not sure Alan Pardew will make all that many changes for this game – but maybe he will and prioritize the Premier League home game against Liverpool on Saturday, in the early kick-off game.
But if Alan does that it’s likely we could lose tonight – because our squad is simply not strong enough at the moment – and Fab’s dream will be gone for another season.
