PLAYERS: Alan Pardew
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says captain Fabricio Coloccini will hold a meeting with club officials next week amid reports the Argentina defender could be on his way back to his homeland. Pardew is hopeful of keeping Coloccini at least until the end of the season, saying ''we will speak to him and we will resolve that situation.'' British media are reporting that Coloccini, who has been one of Newcastle's best players over the last two seasons, wants a transfer back to the Argentine league for family reasons. San Lorenzo has been linked with the player. Coloccini showed no sign of his off-the-field issues by playing well in Newcastle's 0-0 draw at Norwich in the English Premier League on Saturday. Newcastle has already lost leading striker Demba Ba to Chelsea this month.

Alan Pardew – Newcastle Will Not Be Outbid For Transfer Targets

Alan Pardew Pleased With Clean Sheet

If we include the 1-1 draw at Liverpool on November 4th, Newcastle have won two and drawn two of their last 13 league games – and that’s 8 points from a possible 39 points played for, so while we are happy to get an away point and a clean sheet, Newcastle still have a lot [...]

Newcastle Could Offer Simpson in Part Exchange For Defender

Newcastle are actively looking to bring in another center-back, in case Fabricio Coloccini leaves the club this week, and Alan Pardew has said that a decision will be made Coloccini’s request this week – on whether he is allowed to leave immediately for Argentina.

Hatem Ben Arfa Back For Tottenham Game

We’ve been wondering when Ben Arfa would be able to return to the fray, after he was brought back too early in the Fulham game on 10th December, and it looks like that misjudgment has cost Newcastle the use of the French International for two months, because Alan Pardew has said today he hopes to have Ben Arfa back for the Tottenham game, on 9th February. Hatem Ben Arfa – [...]

Newcastle will sort out Fabricio Coloccini’s personal situation this week, but we’d be very surprised if the club acquiesces to Colo’s demands to move to Argentina immediately, to play for San Lorenzo.

Adam Campbell Sent Back To The U21 Squad

We had hoped that Adam Campbell would be given a chance in the first team before the end of the season, but that’s unlikely to happen anytime soon, as Adam has been sent back to the U21 Development squad, so he can get some games under his belt.

Ben Arfa – To Sign For PSG Would Be Childhood Dream

After such a poor Premier League campaign, Newcastle could find it difficult to hang on to some of  our best players this summer, but it will take big money for Mike Ashley to agree to sell some of our top stars like Yohan Cabaye and Ben Arfa.
