Newcastle Team Photo For Season Released – One Player Missing

The team photo for Newcastle United for this season has finally been released, and there are 26 players in the squad.

And as we looked through the players one player is missing – local lad Jack Colback.

Rafa has mentioned that Jack knew the score if he stayed at Newcastle this season.

And it seems the manager will leave Jack out in the cold until January rolls around when he can be sold or loaned out.

Jack annoyed Rafa when he refused to join the first team training during the summer to make the numbers up when some players were out.

Rafa will not have him part of the training presumably because his attitude is not right.

    October is looking likely to be a good month, matches against Liverpool(H), Southampton, C.Palace(H) and Burnley. We should be at lest targeting 6 points if not 9.

    And it was hardly great vision from upper management to appoint Benitez, by all accounts he approached us. A few people suggested after the Chelsea debacle why not offer the unemployed Benitez a few million to keep us up as well, where as upper management allowed Mclaren to take the players to Spain to oversee Collicini put his back out while putting his socks on or something like that.

    It did occur to me that Rafa approached us, however the club had to move a lot faster than usual in coming to terms with his demands.

    I never realised Colback scored as many as five goals. I remember his goal against Burnley, any one remind me of the others.

    We have to play these fixtures before the turn of the year. Strangely and although I am scanning the fixtures, I can only see one match against Man City () 20.1.18 can anyone tell me when the home fixture is?

    ManU (A) 18.11.17
    Chelsea (A) 2.12.17
    Arsenal (A) 16.12.17

    Lascelles Is quality. Centre halves still improving. Defensively we’re sound. Offensively is the major concern.

    Colback was not individually responsible for our relegation, but it is time we and him moved on.

    The only one who has mentioned my being moderated
    is the intellectual giant known as Jail for Ashley.
    Like you I often go to bed early , I did last night
    Just because Jane and I get extremely irritated by the
    irrelevant and annoying attention seeker Geordie 2
    apparently we are the same poster.
    I wasn’t on much yesterday because I was at a funeral in Wales.

    Can’t argue with that.
    I’m surprised somebody hasn’t taken the opportunity to trot out:
    ‘..oh he gives away silly free kicks…has never played a forward pass..and gets booked more than the rest of the players in the league put together..’
    Colback has been randomly brought up yet again for an opportunist slating despite not even being in the squad this season. If you wanted him out, he’s out. I don’t see the relevance of our own fans continually sticking the boot, as has happened from the moment he came here, even after its obvious he is finished here now.

    Sing it occurs to me that the people who would randomly stick the boot in would be supporters of the club who took him through their academy then got shat on.
    Which club was that again ?
