After watching the Newcastle v Swansea clash today, Charlie Nicholas says that United look as though they are on a mission to ‘self-destruct’ at the minute.

Speaking on Sky’s Soccer Saturday, the player turned pundit says that Newcastle looked ok going forward but then slaughtered the defence.

Nicholas couldn’t believe Fabricio Coloccini’s ‘decision making’ and described Mike Williamson simply as ‘wrecked’.

A relegation six pointer follows at Leicester next weekend.

Charlie Nicholas:

“Newcastle played ok going forward but they have an unbalanced look.

“Coloccini’s decision making, or lack of it… is clear for anyone to see.”


“Williamson is just wrecked and Janmaat likes to go forward but doesn’t like to defend.

“I quite like Perez, Colback and I do like the goalkeeper, but they’re on a mission to self-destruct at the moment.”
