Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini blew a fuse after defeat to Stoke City. The Mirror says Coloccini was furious after Saturday's defeat.

And the Argentinian let his feelings flood out with a tirade against the way the team, who have lost four games on the spin and 11 of their last 16 league matches, is playing - and how Alan Pardew is managing.

Coloccini shocked team-mates with his blast, but he is the second Newcastle player to have words with the Magpies' manager - still banned from the touchline after headbutting Hull's David Meyler - in the last week.

Hatem Ben Arfa erupted at Pardew in the previous game - a 4-0 home loss to Manchester United - and was left on the bench at the Britannia.
