Former Striker’s Vicious Criticism Of Newcastle Player

9:13 pm, Sunday, October 25th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 7 Comments

We suppsoe it’s safe to say that Mick Quinn the former Newcastle striker was never a fan of Fabricio Coloccini and he won’t be after today’s game.

Mick is right when he says there was no need to give Steven Fletcher a little nudge (that was all it was even through Steve went flying – really impressive) as goalkeeper Rob Elliot was always going to get to the ball first.

And that’s what it should never have been a red card – it was not a clear-cut goal-scoring opportunity.

Mick Quinn – slams Fabricio Coloccini

But of course that’s all under the Tyne Bridge now – we lost 3-0.

If the FA comes out and says it should not have been a red card – do we get a point for the game?

Here’s Quinn’s rather vicious criticism of the Newcastle captain.

    I agree, Tiote is slowly getting up to the speed. It will be important to beat Stoke at home and I think, with this performance, we will beat them…We maybee dont realise now what a personality and a player Gini Wijnaldum is, he should be next captain…We need new CB,LB and CM…Xhaka, Willems and one strong CB and we are done for this year…and next season we will attack top 6 for sure

    Toonfan8, nice to hear positivity from a game under normal circumstances we would have won. That today wasn’t a team that folded when Things went wrong, but one who rolled their collective sleeves up and cracked on with it. Two bad decisions – Collo’s leaning to hard and the ref getting it totally wrong. We were excellent in the first half and the football was a treat to watch. Macca’s getting it right and with January just around the corner better players brought in will change a lot. Nothing to fear imo, but the mackems have everything to worry about. Everyone worrying about Mitrovic and Tiote getting sent off – football never ceaes to amaze!

    You see far worse than Colo’s challenge any day of the week. I’d have thought a dinosaur like Quinny would have applauded the lost art of the shoulder challenge. You get obstruction unpunished every time a fullback blocks off an attacker as he shepherds the ball out to touch when a yard or two from the ball.
