The Coloccini Effect
Having played for eight teams in the last thirteen years, over three leagues in two continents, winning five competitions and throw in an Olympic gold medal to boot, and the Coloccini effect on Newcastle is now in full swing.
Some players fail to rise the challenge of captaining their club teams, while others were born to lead, Fabricio Coloccini’s galvanisation of Newcastle United’s troubled and often flailing dressing room is nothing short of mind blowing. The Argentine has lead by example, sticking with his contract on relegation and has now cemented his place as one of the most consistent and capable defenders in the Premier League.
The re-emergence of Steven Taylor and the talented Tim Krul has allowed Coloccini to excel further with the Toon having the meanest defence in the league, conceding only four goals in their opening seven games.
Fabricio’s recent murmerings regarding his NUFC future can only reinforce the professional attitude shown by a captain worthy to wear the armband.
Below is a video highlighting a few of Colo’s goals for the Toon (you can improve the video quality after pressing play by changing the setting in the bottom-right corner of the video to 720HD):
