Fitz Hall, signed on loan from Queens Park Rangers in January, and he hails Fabricio Coloccini as the 'best ever' player he has played with. Fitz Hall: "Sometimes you have to take a step down to take two steps forward, and I definitely feel Newcastle are on the up and they are rebuilding. "The players they have here, the experienced players, are pulling the young boys through; the boys Chris [Hughton], the gaffer, has brought in are all young, hungry and they are up for a challenge. "Fabricio Coloccini is the best player I have played with. Before I came here, I didn't know too much about him, I had just seen him on telly. "But I have been impressed. When you watch Match of the Day and see the highlights, you don't get the full view of what a player is. "But training with him, he is by far the best centre-half I have ever played with."
