News today that Kevin Keegan may be interested in taking Kevin Nolan from Bolton Wanderers for Â£4M, but we think there’s another Englishman who could fit the bill on Tyneside..
Jimmy Bullard – target for Newcastle?
With Bolton winning 1-0 yesterday at Middlesbrough they still have a chance to stay in the Premier league. But whether they stay in the top league or not the reports suggest that Newcastle will be pursuing Nolan.
It seems to us that if we are going after Nolan, a better bet could be Fulhamâ€™s Jimmy Bullard, who has been playing very well for the London side, and was their best player when Newcastle beat the Cottagers 2-0 at St. Jamesâ€™ Park recently.
29 year-old London born Bullard has just recovered from a serious injury but he has looked a good player this season, and could be even better at Newcastle under Kevin Keegan.
And he has made no secret of the fact that the ground he likes playing on most is St. Jamesâ€™ Park, because of the great atmosphere created by the Newcastle faithful. We keep hearing reports on Kevin Nolan, but given a straight choice we think Jimmy would be a better but for Newcastle.
Bullard, who stands 5’11” tall, played 68 times for Wigan Athletic and scored 11 goals, and has so far played 145 times for Fulham scoring 10 goals. On the other hand Liverpool born Kevin Nolan is 25 years old, 6′ tall and has played 268 times for Bolton scoring 40 goals.
