Some Shearer Praise For Danish Striker Lovenkrands

It seems from what Alan Shearer has said this morning, that he has taken a liking to Danish striker Peter Lovenkrands at Newcastle.


Peter Lovenkrands – more goals from this player this season?

 Shearer talked Peter to the Evening Chronicle this morning:

“He’s fully recovered now, and he’s fit again and back ready to play.” “I know he made a big impression when he first came here, and I thought he started well against Chelsea before he had the injury.”

“He couldn’t play the game after that, and it has been a similar story with a few players, but he’s back fit now, and available for selection.”

“He can play in a few positions, and has scored a couple of important goals.” “If we need him, hopefully he can do the same again.”

Meanwhile, Lovenkrands has given some look into life in the Newcastle training camp over the last week, as he fights to get an extended contract at the Tyneside club, as well as keep us up:

“We are fighting relegation, so it’s not the most enjoyable time.” “People are unhappy and frustrated, but we’re working hard.”

“The key matches were always going to be Middlesbrough and Fulham.”

It would be good to see Lovenkrands get a few goals for us still this season, but then again we’d like any player to get a few goals for us this season, with just one goal in the last 450 minutes of league play.

It will be  a pity Alan hasn’t brought his boots along for Monday night’s game.

And it’s fairly certain that Peter will get an extension to his contact in the summer, whatever happens, but the length of the contract will be the unknown, and he may  get just a one year extension.

Comments welcome.

    Think about it guys, there are Basque separatists and Catalan separatists, why not Northumbrian separatists? Hell not even separatists, just some sort of Self-Government for the North East. Everyone has the right to live without the fear of persecution.

    In fact looking at it historically, we have stronger claims to independence than both the Basques and the Catalans.

    Our players are like ball boys. They just fetch it for the opposition.

    I agree with broon ale again about Lovenkrandz. I prefer his opinions to my own at the moment.

    51times – did you do history at uni – if so you would know that the Spanish had a civil war in the last 50 years – hence the Catalan/Basque separatist issue still being at the fore – whereas our was some years earlier!! Hence a less ‘tribal’ aspect the regional relations…..I may not have done english, my history may be sketchy but I have straight A’s in common sense mate, I suggest you study it closely!

    “dont really know what to make of him.. he appears fairly average. he kept on losing the ball against liverpool.”

    It’s true, broon, that he had a pretty poor game after being rushed back from injury against Liverpool. But he is a much better player than that.

    I meant to write, “much better player than that performance”.

    I would give Lovenkrands a place in the team – rather him than Butt. By the way Tescos are selling Oxo cubes in Newcastle colours. The public have been told to look out for laughing stocks! Bugger Boro.
