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!!
