Nicky Butt has admitted today that the arrival of new boys Kevin Nolan, Ryan Taylor and Peter Lovenkrands has given the Newcastle squad a big lift.
Nicky Butt – three new lads have given us a big lift
The new signings all played a massive part in the important 3-2 win at WBA almost two weeks ago, and will be set to do the same again on Sunday, in our difficult game against Everton.
And current captain Nicky Butt says that the increased competition for places, and the presence of the new lads, has come as a boost for the Newcastle squad.
Nicky talked today to nufcTV about the three new lads:
“It has definitely given us a lift,” “And if they’re in your position you have to step it up a little bit which is good for the squad.”
“All three have done fantastic and have fitted in straight away.” “They are all good lads and get along well with the rest of the boys.”
“They’re very experienced and have already shown why we bought them.”
While three players in January was not enough, the players we brought in have definitely improved the squad, and for just £5.5M, they were a bargain.
