Who Will Be Our Alan Shearer Today?
I have no worries about Fabricio Coloccini putting in another very good performance as he did at Carrow Road. However, with his ‘personal’ situation and every chance of him leaving very soon, it surely is impossible for him to be going around the players saying how much this game means and how important the club is and you have to give everything to NUFC.
I think he has been an excellent player for us and the total absence of any stick at Norwich shows the fans are still right behind him, but any words to the other players must have a hollow ring with what is hanging over him.
So where else should we look? Maybe as much as his ability we could do with Steven Taylor getting amongst them and geeing them up, he plays with his heart on his sleeve and that is what is needed today.
If we are to have a new captain then there may be nobody a more natural choice than Yohan Cabaye, clearly an influential player in the dressing room and looks to be king of our French contingent. Both he and Debuchy have experience of winning a league title and we need that winning drive and mentality today.
The players have talked all week about the spirit still being great in the squad, today they have to show it and we need eleven leaders on the pitch.
