Fabricio Coloccini has denied that he had a fight with Tim Krul on the team coach after the embarrassing display against Leicester.

There were widespread claims of clashes between various players and indeed players with coaching staff, though Coloccini denies that any such behaviour took place.

Writing in today’s match programme, Coloccini (well we assume it was him…) :

“The dressing room after the game was angry at the result and the performance.

“However, I have read things this week that said there was fighting between the players in the dressing room and on the bus. That is not true at all.”


“Everything that was said was positive and constructive as everyone is trying their best to push the team back up the league.

“This week we have had a number of meetings between the players and with the staff at the training ground. Everyone has made it clear that they want to fight for this club to keep Newcastle in the Premier League.”

    Of course he didn’t, everything is rosy at Newcastle isn’t it?

    The more I think of this the more angry I get for his patronising lies. The arrogance he shows by thinking we are so stupid to believe his crap absolutely sums the bloke up. He isn’t fit to wear the shirt let alone arm band!

    Alsteads Don’t blame the fellow, it was probably news to him when he read it. This was in the match programme so it is just the usual crass attempt to cover up by the PR team.

    What a load of verbal diohrea, another PR Stunt, is Ashley working your strings, look at the goals that’s been conceided, now that tells you facts,you are not that bothered just when it suits you.
    Time for a new captain and players that want to win every game not just the last couple of games to save the club from relegation.
    Action speaks louder than words.
