Captain Colo

Recommended Posts

From.com

 

It's reported that Alan Pardew has appointed Fabricio Coloccini as United's new club captain in succession to last season's armband wearers, Alan Smith & Kevin Nolan.

 

The Spanish-speaking centre half has been preferred to Joey Barton, seen as the natural candidate by many but entering the final year of his current contract and not always "on message" enough for his employers...

Always seemed like captain material to me. However, how is his mastery of english? (and French btw?)

 

 

Good player who can hopefully lead by example!

Kevin Nolan was a proper captain, Joey should have been the next captain and Colochini for me is a bit of a daft squib in this role.

 

I am not too fussed because the "Captain" at times is just a symbol and I have no doubt it will still be Barton, barking instructions, geeing players along and dragging us back into games when it goes wrong.

He'll have to toughen up if he's going to lead by example. Someone needs to show him some old videos of John McNamee and Norman Hunter playing CB. The forwards were scared of them, not the other way round...

If he played like them, he would hardly ever be on the pitch anyway in this day and age :D

Pardew: "Derek. I need a new captain. Who are you not going to sell this year?"

Dekka "Well, Colo is on £80k pw so no other club will stump up that. Therefore we are stuck with him for another 2 years"

I don't ever remember thinking "colo's fairly sorting things out" always seemed pretty quiet in games tbh,

I can see Barton running things with colo wearing the band just because bartons leaving.

:D Pleased about this, since he can't now be sold seeing as he's captain.

in terms of barnets, Barton's is infinately more authoritative .

It's the black-shirted Oswald Mosely to Colo's oversized-shoe wearing Coco the Clown.

Good point that. Its like a WW2 RAF Commander versus a Spanish bin-man.
