Newcastle Fans Make Clear They Think Coloccini Is On His Way
At the end of each season we run a fans’ poll in our magazine, asking readers to vote on all kinds of topics to do with Newcastle United.
We then collate the thousands of votes and publish all the results in the summer special (out on 8th June – pre-order in our online shop – only £3) of our magazine.
We asked the question; Do You Think Coloccini Will Still Be At Newcastle In September?
As we all know, our captain tried to leave in January for ‘personal reasons’ but ended up staying for the rest of the season, with the club stating that they hoped that in the summer they hoped to persuade Colo to stay long-term.
Despite Alan Pardew saying in recent days that he was hopeful of keeping his captain at the club, the fans don’t have the same faith.
In our exclusive poll, 65% of Newcastle fans believe Coloccini will leave this summer and only 35% think he will still be at St.James’ Park come September.
Whether Colo still wants to leave or not, the problem remains that was there in January. The player supposedly still sees San Lorenzo/Argentina as his only destination and there appears no chance of any realistic fee being paid for one of Newcastle’s best players.
It was claimed that only when Coloccini’s contractual obligations were pointed out to him (and the financial implications) that he then accepted he couldn’t leave in January, how he gets around that problem if he still wants to leave, is an interesting poser.
Thanks to the thousands of you who voted and watch out for our next Fans’ Poll question coming up shortly.
