Fabricio Coloccini has had a couple of good games for Newcastle in the wins against Liverpool and Tottenham, and we hope the Newcastle captain can keep up his good form against bottom club Aston Villa tomorrow – when a clean sheet would be very helpful in getting all 3 points.
It’s a game at home we should be winning after a couple of tough games that we were not expected to win – so we’ll see how consistent Newcastle have become of late.
We like the way Steve McClaren and the coaches and players seem to disappear in the first part of the week as they put in a lot of hard work on the training field.
That hard work seems to be starting to pay off after a very shaky start to the season.

It’s still a key game for our players tomorrow to see if they will turn up against a lesser side like Aston Villa – as they did against top teams Liverpool and Tottenham.
This is what Fabricio Coloccini has said:
“I think the results always help us,” “At the moment we have been working very hard every week.” “We couldn’t get the result before, but now they are coming and we’re very happy about that.”
“We’re going to stay with our feet on the floor and keep working. We know that Aston Villa have to fight to get out of the relegation zone soon.”
“We want to keep going in this way as well, move away from there and further up the table.” “We need to stay at this same level and try to play at our best like we did against Liverpool and Spurs.”
“We have to focus and try to find more wins, especially over this busy Christmas period.”
“Every week I think the staff are speaking with the subs and telling them they have to keep working because they will get a chance.”
“Mitro and Ayoze are still working very hard during the week and that’s why I think we got the result – because they came on, showed their quality and scored.”
It’s possible we can get all 3 points tomorrow if our players turn up and reach the same performance levels of the last two games.
And then we have the following league games through January 2nd before we are away to Watford in the FA Cup.
December Sat 19 17:30 H Aston Villa Sat 26 17:30 H Everton Mon 28 15:00 A WBA January Sat 02 15:00 A Arsenal Sat 09 15:00 A Watford - FA Cup 3rd round
How many points do you think we can pick up in the next four league games?
