Coloccini Gets Double Vote Of Confidence From Fans

8 years ago

Newcastle United’s Captain, Fabricio Coloccini, has been given a double vote of confidence by the fans.

During Saturday’s match the travelling supporters were very vocal in that Colo was still indeed ‘the love of their lives’ and that in no way had the previous day’s speculation about his future, turned them against him.

The match itself was a real non-event though with perhaps the most telling factor that afterwards both camps seemed more than happy to have taken a point; Norwich happy to end a run of four consecutive league defeats and Newcastle four in all competitions.

Perhaps in the circumstances it was no surprise to see a defender getting top marks in our man of the match vote, though Coloccini was coolness personified and a calming presence on the rest of the defence, as he picked up 24% of the fans’ votes.

A negative approach by both teams meant that our tongue in cheek option of ‘nobody’ was the only one to break up a complete sweep for defenders at the top of the poll, Williamson the only one not to feature…;

Coloccini 24%
Krul 17%
Santon 14%
Nobody 14%
Debuchy 9%

Our new French right-back had a steady but unspectacular match and IF the Coloccini situation can be positively resolved and IF Steven Taylor or a new signing can slot back in alongside him shortly, then Newcastle could have a great foundation to build on from the back, at last.
