For Pete’s Sake Let’s All Stick Together At Newcastle

Peter Lovenkrands, our 29 year-old Danish striker, who only has a contract through the summer, has today called on everybody at the Newcastle club to stick together during these very difficult times.


Peter Lovenkrands – let’s stick together for the sake of the club

Peter told Newcastle TV this morning:

“We need to stick together behind Chris (Hughton) and Colin (Calderwood) and behind each other,” “There’s no point in turning on each other and we don’t have that type of person in the dressing room.”

“We want to stick together and we want to help each other.” “We know we are all in this together and we definitely have the spirit to come through and stay in the Premier League.”

“I thought we played tremendous (against Arsenal), especially in the first-half,” “I thought we had control of the game but lost a set-piece goal just after the hour.”

“We did well to get back into it straight away through Oba Martins but it was a blow to lose the second goal with Steven Taylor off the pitch injured.”

“After that the last 20 minutes were a bit flat after they got a third and we were disappointed with the eventual outcome.” “I felt good. Me and Oba played well together, we linked up quite a few times and we understand each other quite well.”

“I was pleased to get the chance to play again and I will be doing all I can to stay in the team.” “I’ll be doing all I can to help keep us up because that’s what I’m here for.”

We think Peter is right on about sticking together, and that’s what we all need to do through the end of the season. However, we’re not as sure we were as good as Peter says against Arsenal, and in the end we were well beaten.

Demonstrations and the like can wait until after the season ends, but right now all Newcastle fans have to think about is how best to support the team and the coaches, in these terrible times, so we can stay up.

It will not be easy, as fans are starting to realize, but with an uptick in form, and the return of a fit Joe Kinnear shortly, the lads can still do it, and if they can achieve that everybody will be able to hear that huge sigh of relief on Tyneside.

But support has to be the main order of the day in these last eight crucial games – and every single one of them will be like a Cup Final. But we can still do it.

Howay The Lads!!

    If only he had put the ball in the nest against Everton?

    I wonder what the league would look like now?

    its getting a bit tiresome listening to these calls from the players. i agree we have to accept we are sticking with our current mamangement team but that doesn’t stop us from making a judgement that they are clueless idiots who will get us relgated.
    i agree with widowmaker if players and staff are in harmony why mention it?

    the chroncile os running a story viduka back for stoke clash. i know its easy to criticise and not clever at this point in time but back to do what, eat the pies, carry the water bottles. Its because we signed the likes under fat sam we are in the mess now. he must be at least sixth in the pecking order. we are going to need players with maximum effort not freeloaders like fatty

    god blimey the same rag is saying cacapa will feature against chelski. we can write that game off as no points if its true. edgar is a far better option. hughton praises cacapa and viduka the guy is getting desperate he should forget about the pair of them.

    sad to see lua lua go out the club even on loan. can anyone figure out ouer policy with young players. we just never give them a chance. the argument of we are in a dogfight i don’t accept. for the forseeable future the toon will always be in the bottom half of the league so the young players will never get a game. ryan donaldson whatever happened to him he has disappeared off the radar

    So this bloke thinks the performance against Arsenal was “tremendous” and “me and Oba played well together”???

    We’re doomed if that rubbish is what he thinks is an acceptable standard

    Cacappa should not get anywhere near the first team! if he gets picked then we can say hello to being relegated.

    The defence should be :




    Or if fit.

    UTD111 – actually I agree with Loverboy on this. I thought we looked very good indeed up to when Steven Taylor was injured, and I was thinking we had a good chance to get 3 points.

    big boomer – on the reserves issue, I think they’re right to hold them back. This is a time for experience and battle-hardened players, because it’s going to get very tough and very ugly, especially in the 6-pointers.

    I’m a huge fan of Lua Lua, but what he gets away with in the reserves league would get flattened by the big boys. Better to wait than to send him on to have his confidence crushed by a John Terry or (worse) his legs crushed by a Cattermole.

    If we’d played like we did against Arsenal (up to Taylor’s injury) right through this season we’d be looking at Europe. Our problem is that we play more like St. Dunstons 2nd 11 against anyone except the top 4, and the interim-interim gaffer seems to plan it that way.
