Fabricio Coloccini may or may not be set to take over from Alan Pardew as Newcastle manager in the next few days. Regardless of whether one of the more unusual managerial rumours of recent years actually comes to fruition, it is sure to fill plenty of column inches over the next few days and with good reason.
Newcastle as a club are always good value for a bit of entertainment for fans and neutrals alike and potentially lumping the added burden of steering the seemingly unsteerable ship onto the back of your best defender would certainly go along with that narrative.
Jamie Carragher's reaction to the breaking news live on Monday Night Football was perfectly reasonable considering this kind of out of the blue news really doesn't happen that often anymore. Whatever, you say about Mike Ashley, at least he's never boring. Now, what are the chances that Sam Allardyce could be convinced to go in as Coloccini's assistant with Niall Quinn as the Director of Football.
