A player that will always be remembered for regularly sticking the ball in the mackems’ net, if he doesn’t achieve anything else I know a few hundred thousand people who would happily swap places with the local lad and boyhood Newcastle United fan.
On Sky they announced that Liverpool could go 4th if they beat Spurs. As the scousers required 5 points to get to this position I assume the presenter thought his eyes were deceiving him and assigned Liverpool 5th place, thinking Newcastle to be some sort of misprint.
I reckon it would be a pretty startling, but welcome, statistic if United went into the 2012/13 Premier League season with Captain Coloccini at the ripe old age of 30, out on his own as the voice of experience in the Newcastle dressing room.
Reasons to be cheerful….5th in table, Martin’s Mackems got beat, Swansea did us a favour…..and you’re almost certainly not the bloke I heard after the match who said, “…thought Shola had a canny game…”.
