If Jack Colback keeps playing like he’s been performing over the last few games, there’s just no reason why he cannot get another call-up for the England, especially after Newcastle have been playing so well over the last three weeks – with four wins in a row- which we are hoping to make five wins in a row after our game at West Brom on Sunday.
Jack Colback in action last Saturday
Four successive Premier League wins isn’t be the best we have done under manager Alan Pardew, who has been under tremendous pressure all year for the poor results.
We had six league wins on the trot in March and April two years ago, before we lost 4-0 at Wigan, and we were 4-0 down at the break in that game – so it was a crushing end to a great run – but we still finished 5th in the league that season.
This is what Geordie Jack – who comes from Killingworth – had to say today:
“We’ve got one more game before the international break, and if we could win it, it would really cap off what’s been a pretty good spell for us. It’s amazing what a few wins can do.”
“We were really struggling in the bottom three and it was horrible looking at the league table every time on the TV, but we’ve won three games now in the league and we briefly went into the top 10 at the weekend.¨
“If we can beat West Brom going into the international break, and then have a home game against QPR, we could be absolutely flying.”
Jack has done so well since he was signed as a free agent from Sunderland, and of all our new players, the 25 year-old has performed better than any newcomer we brought in over the summer.
We don’t want to get carried away (what again?), but obviously the longer we can keep this winning run going the better off we’ll be – and we are hoping that by the end of the year any relegation struggles are past and gone.
So a win on Sunday in the early kick-off game, is just what the Doctor ordered.
