Jack Colback was a great acquisition for Newcastle in the summer – a free agent from Sunderland – and the lad has been in outstanding form for the Magpies so gar this season, and yesterday he had a cracking game against the team that’s probably the best side in Europe at the moment – Chelsea.
Jack Colback challenges Eden Hazard yesterday
It was Newcastle’s third win in a row in this fixture, and Jack was our Man of the Match with 39% of the vote followed by the returning captain – Fabricio Coloccini – with 16%.
Unfortunately Alan Pardew said the Argentine has injured himself again – so even more injury woes for Newcastle.
Third in the voting was Mr. Goalscorer Papiss Cisse who came on after 53 minutes and scored the two goals that had us 2-0 ahead with 10 minutes to go before Steven Taylor got himself sent off.
Janmaat, Perez and Sissoko were next in the voting and Moussa picked up his 5th yellow card of the season, and will now miss the game at Arsenal next Saturday – another very tough game for the lads.
21 year-old Jak Alnwick came on at half time for the injured Rob Elliot was also a bit of a hero and 7th in the voting, and the goalkeeper had a good game and helped Newcastle get another famous result against the Blues – and our win had made headlines around the world.
But we are now very short in cover at goalkeeper -0 with both Tim Krul and Rob Elliot our until January and therefore will miss the busy holiday period of games.
17 year-old Freddie Woodman presumably will be on the bench in the December games.
Next season we have to ensure we have three experienced goalkeepers in the squad.
