Jack Colback has been one of the success stories so far this season after the Killingworth born 25 year-old signed on as a free agent from Sunderland over the summer.
Jack Colback in action against Liverpool
Jack has been an automatic starter for Newcastle and he has played in all of the last six games, which have been six successive wins for the Magpies – and has created one the most amazing turnarounds seen in many a year in the Premier League.
This is what Jack has said in the Mail:
“Momentum is how football works,’ ‘We were not fantastic against QPR, but with the spirit around the place we always believe that at the very least we are not going to get beaten.”
“That is a massive thing and we maybe didn’t have it at the start of the season. Everyone is pulling in the right direction and knows their role.”
“There have been a lot of players come in because of injury and they have all done fantastically well. Everyone is playing well. We are getting our rewards for that now.”
“That is great and it is nice to give something back for the fans. This is a big club with big expectations and we should be up there challenging within the top eight.”
The Newcastle fans have already gone through the agony and the ecstasy this season – which is what it’s like supporting Newcastle.
The agony is that we were second bottom after seven games with just four points – and talking about a possible relegation fight – and the ecstasy that after five straight league wins (six in all competitions) we are in joint fourth position and a possible European place for next season.
So if somebody was to ask how things will go from here on – as far as Newcastle’s season goes we wouldn’t have a clue.
It could be another good season – in fact a great season – because of the emergence of so many good youngsters like Rolando Aarons, Ayoze Perez, Sammy Ameobi, Mehdi Abeid, Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett.
But you just never know with Newcastle, and certainly in Alan Pardew’s reign on Tyneside, which is nearly four years now, we have had spells when we win a lot – but also spells when we lose a lot.
We saw that last season and we seen those already this season in the first 12 league games of the season.
But we are not complaining, and just hoping for the very best and that we can continue this amazing winning streak at Upton Park on Saturday.
Howay The Lads!!
