Since Steve McClaren has arrived as the Newcastle head coach the communication from the coaching staff and especially from the captain Fabricio Coloccini has increased significantly and that cannot be too bad – since communication from he club has always been poor under owner Mike Ashley.
Colo had a great game last time out at Bournemouth and was second in our Man of the Match poll only to Rob Elliot who had a spectacular game in the lucky 1-0 win on the road – but it was a fantastic 3 points for us.

Fabricio has sent another email to the Newcastle fans today – and this is what the Argentine International, who has been at Newcastle for over seven years now had to say:
“You are loyal, passionate and knowledgeable fans, the best in football as far as I’m concerned.” “Even when we haven’t managed to get the result we wanted from a game, you’ve been able to see what we were trying to do throughout the game and have given us your backing all the way.”
“I have to say your support has been like that all season.” “We are adapting to a new and exciting style of play under Steve McClaren and we’re starting to see things come together now.”
“First and foremost we want to win, of course, but we also want to entertain and give you the kind of football you want to see from your team. That’s certainly our aim as the season progresses.”
“I have lived in this football-mad city since 2008 and have loved every minute of it.”
“I have played football all over the world and experienced many different stadiums but there are few that can match St. James’ Park. We are a one-club city and the Geordies are very special.”
“That’s why when we step out onto the field to represent your city, we do our absolute best to repay your support each and every time.”
We have to give it to the Newcastle fans this season – they have been simply outstanding with their support – and that’s especially true after the terrible second half of last season.
But as Colo says – we hope Newcastle are starting to get some much better results and improved performances to go with them.
We played very poorly at Bournemouth, but the lads have done well in the three games before that – and at least we kept fighting on the south coast last Saturday to secure all 3 points – even though we didn’t deserve them – we’ll take them.
A win at home to Leicester City a week on Saturday would also be a great 3 points for us and maybe we may see a good performance from the lads in that game.
