Coloccini's Highlight Of The Season ...

Fabricio Coloccini wants to pay tribute to the team as a whole for last season's fabulous season.
“At the start of the season we thought amongst ourselves that we had the squad and the ability to do well, so when we went on the unbeaten run at the start it gave us the confidence to play our game and not fear anyone.
“I think we proved that at Old Trafford when we drew with United and although we then had a bad time in December, we never lost the belief and that was vital as we kicked on again in the second half of the season.
“At the start of the season we didn’t concede many goals and although the defence got the credit, you can’t do that without your front six playing their part too.
"I enjoyed playing alongside Steven (Taylor) but when he was injured, Mike ((Williamson) came in and did fantastic too.
"Across the whole team, players came in and played their part which is vital in any teams’ success.
“But there again we had people like Shola Ameobi, who scored one of our most important goals of the season against Spurs, and Ryan Taylor who won the derby for us. That game, so early in the season, made us really believe we could push on.
“Tim was great. I remember his save early in the game at home to Wigan, from Victor Moses – a game we went on to win.
"Those are turning points and the importance cannot be underestimated."
