Coloccini, who is set to return from a month out with a groin injury, says Newcastle can kick on against Tottenham this weekend but insists that the club has to remain realistic going forward.
"We are working hard and we want the same as the fans," Coloccini told the Evening Chronicle.
"They want results, and we want them as well. We are working for that.
"We are going to have bad times and good times. We have to be quiet and accept the criticism.
"Sometimes it is maybe realistic if we do not get the results."
