Newcastle Midfielder – We Could Be Absolutely Flying

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.

    Next 3 games are huge, all very much winnable games and 9 more points would put us pretty solid in the top 8-10 going into a tough holiday schedule.

    Team for West Brom :





    In the second half against Liverpool we showed how well we can counter attack and that is how we should set up in most away games IMO .

    kenzie @2 – Cisse and Sammy have looked lost when in the starting line up, better as potential subs.

    Big Pappa Cissé@4 – agree with your line up, although I was just wondering about Dummet and Collo as CD to give the younger player more experience, in readiness for when then latter takes his usual mid-season vacation.

    Take off Sissoko and Cabella from that right side,play with 9 players and you will have more success than your 11 players formation.

    Dominic cork on talk sport this am saying pards has proved fans wrong by winning last four games. Next segment talking about man city said dangerous to judge a manager on just a few games. Anyone else seems a contradiction? Sick of fans getting sagged off for rightly being disgruntled.

    Mag52 or jeff from penywell would have us fill our squad with Goslings, Marveauxes and Obertran’s for fear of buying an expensive dud, much better to pack the squad out with cheap duds instead.

    70Two – in these unusual days of blog harmony, with reasoned posts and even the late night trolls/blog bitches/argumentative bast***s behaving themselves – a little bit naughty of you to suggest Captain Collo flits off for a mid season holiday. The Collo acolytes will be after you.
    It was no holiday -it was a recuperation period -to aid the healing of his fractured vertebrae. This was abundantly clear as when he did return he was fully fit. He was able to gain plenty of exercise following a keep fit schedule jumping up and down on the terraces of St Lorenzo.
    His re-habilitation was further aided by the application of a special poultice upon his injury. I understand such poultices’ use a mixture of South American herbs along with the spittle from the poisonous Amazonia tree frog and the entrails of a Argentinian jungle cock. Lets all be together on the blog.HWTL.

    Colbec’ll not be looked at by Roy Hodgson until we play somewhere further south.

    Beats me why England managers rarely venture beyond Manchester to view players. You’d think we’re somewhere near the moon rather than 2.5 hours from Kings Cross!

    He’s not good enough. He’s the worst defensive midfielder in the squad and does not get involved enough in matches. I’d be happy if we got £3m for him.

    Colbeck was a part of the Scum team which beat us twice last year! A lot of people will be a while forgiving him hor that? I am pleased myself to have him in the squad !
