Fabricio Coloccini's outstanding individual performance in Sunday's derby match has James Perch purring.

As Nile Ranger couldn't even turn up on time to face a disciplinary committee . about him turning up late for training . perhaps he should look at the Toon skipper for inspiration.

James Perch: “A role model.

“To be fair, Colo is one of the hardest workers in training and is always out there on the training pitch early.

“The guy is a great role model for us all because he does the right things all the time. He’s a great model especially for the kids at Newcastle.

“Colo could hardly walk when he was subbed.

"He had a problem with his calf and was struggling a bit, but that is the courage of the man.

"He’s a great leader and, for me, it’s his composure which makes him a top-class player.

“The back five were all superb in fairness. They have Fletcher who has been on fire.

“I would imagine he would say that was the toughest game he had to play in so far this season because they didn’t give him a minute.

“They were tight on him all the time and won almost every header. Collo and Willow (Mike Williamson) were superb.

“Collo was unbelievable. He’s been out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury, that was his first game back in a while, and he was absolutely superb.

“That shows the character of the man, but he is like that every week.”
