Coloccini Missing From Squad – He Could Be On His Way


The local press reported in mid-week that Fabricio Coloccini would be playing in today’s game but not only did he not play but he wasn’t even with the squad.

And with the papers continually reporting he is wanted by Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew, then it could be that he and Newcastle have decided to part ways – which is maybe why he didn’t even make the trip to Sheffield today.

It could have been his last game for Newcastle.

Colo is still the captain, and it was interesting that Daryl Janmaat was names the captain for the day – and he is the favorite among Newcastle fans to become the new captain at the club.

Who Should Be Newcastle's Captain Next Season?

Colo has been troubled by an Achilles injury which is why he’s missed games up to this point, but he is fit again and was expected to start.

With one year left on his contract it was thought that if we get two top class center-backs in over the summer months, then it might be a good time for Colo to leave – and maybe even get a two year deal at Palace.

And yesterday in the Chronicle there was a report that Newcastle would offer both Papiss Cisse and Fab Coloccini for sale, and the club still need a clear-out of players this summer.

We may be reading too much into this – but maybe we can get a clarification on the situation from Steve McClaren.

    Remember SDJ has been around the players for a year, the whole team has got to know him. Where as wijnaldum has just walked in to the team. As well as been around the players for a year, SDJ is more vocal & more of a natural leader than wijnaldum, Janmaat & colback

    Repost!!

    SDJ has been at the club for 12 months, he has the respect of the players both on and off the pitch. He’s not a new signing, he probably knows each amd every player from senior through to the youth set up. All of this is a massive difference to someone who probably only just learned where the toilets are!!

    Agreed he spent a lot of time out injured but injuries will happen to every player it’s something they can all relate to, being new to a club and having zero relationship with 98% of the players though isn’t like being injured.

    Big deal, he wasn’t involved in a friendly. This doesn’t mean he’s on his way.

    Even if he is on his way, he wants to go back Argentina, not Crystal palace!

    SDJ would be my captain, I think he would have been Pardew’s captain but the soft tw@ was frightened to upset Coloccini.

    He was made Vice Captain last season as he has all the attributes and experience.

    Out of his own mouth he said, “I am vocal on the training field as well as on the pitch, and I like to have conversations with the coaches about training”; sounds like the man for the job to me.

    It makes sense.
    I never thought Ash would let him run down his last 12 months on his wages to walk away for nothing.

    How much would we get for him from Crystal Palace…£3-4 million ??

    I’d be happy with 2m and it’ll mean his hefty wages are off the books as well.

    Williamson has surely got to be the first out the door, we should set up a fund to help out leeds raise the extra cash so they can get their man..

    That sounds fair to be honest, Pardew really rates him and he has until the last two “want away” seasons served us well. I think he is worth at least £3 million.

    If colo leaves means we need 2 new centre back desperately. Not one but two. Or we will struggle. We’ve looked so poor in defence in pre season it’s scary. Our attack is probably OK and not too bad.

    But defence..this will struggle in the championship even.

    Our defence needs strengthening desperately – hopefully Mbemba is a start if he gets his work permit.
    Only one I would keep out of our defence is Janmaat after that would get rid of the lot

    Wouldn’t be upset to see him going at all, nothing to do with his ability but his attitude over the last few years and his captaincy has been a joke, I don’t think it’s been discussed but I think his attitude as a captain must be at least a bit part factor in our atrocious form and dispirited displays. My only worry is that they’re leaving it very late to get a cohesive CB partnership in place if he does go.

    I’ve got a feeling that the defender from Anderlecht is just a big practical joke by MA to the fans portraying that the regime of selling players isn’t over.

    ‘Chaz, as soon as you get the Chance, sell Mbemba’

    Perez is a young lad he he will get friends. Ssisoko played well.

    so get Shaqiri on the other wing and we will b month water add that to Janmaatt and Haidara coming in to provide e crosses. Happy days r coming.

    Fir Aarins and Perz they r not ready for the pressure to start yet I wld keep them as back up for shaqiri and Sissoko respectively.

    …………..Wijnaldum…….Colback
    Sissoko………….De Jong…………..Shaqiri
    ………………………Mitrovic

    That is month watering.

    Wouldn’t mind Collocini leaving NUFC providing he is replaced NOW and not after he leaves.

    On his day he looks like one of the best ball playing Centre backs in the PL, but the majority of the time he is bang average .

    Also I think he is one of the worst captains (on the pitch) we have ever had as in our numerous drubbings under Pardew he would just look at the floor and do nothing rather than give the players an earful .

    Ian Toon,
    I guess this is becoming tiresome for everyone but firstly I can categorically state that I have never once mentioned you in a post to Ed, the only time I have contacted Ed was when we were plagued with that multiple troll a couple of different times.
    Secondly you talk about nastiness, you continually mention me in posts when talking about the wheat and the chaff etc and your accusations of me being these several different posters considering your history is beyond laughable.
    Thirdly, believe me I have read that exchange very closely and although it is pushy pardew talking to himself it is clear as day that the answer is supposed to be Ian Toon, I’ll post it again in case you are unsure, I suggest you read it again and stop your BS !!!

    I see the Express are mischief making again with a report that claims we’re stalling on offering Aarons a new contract. That, of course, goes directly against what the Chronicle and the club have stated – not to mention what has come out of the young mans mouth himself. With two years left on his contract,, he’s already said all he wants to do is keep impressing Macca with his hard work. He’ll get his contract but I imagine he’ll want to show what he’s worth in the PL first, which will, if he continues at his current rate, give him a much stronger hand when it comes down to negotiations. One thing is for certain, Macca won’t allow this lad to slip through his fingers, regardless of what the Express might say.

    jail – Ian Toon is not the first person to be caught red handed, pants down, dead to rights and then deny responsibility.
    He is preceeded by the likes of Fred West and the Yorkshire Ripper.
