Dane Peter Lovenkrands Coming Good At Newcastle

Peter Lovenkrands has done well on Tyneside, and has been more than decent when he’s played for Newcastle United this year.


Peter Lovenkrands – doing well on Tyneside

Peter has 3 good goals at Newcastle, including the clincher on Monday night after 86 minutes, when he shot home with his weaker right foot, after Kevin Nolan brilliantly picked him out from the right.

Quite honestly Peter made it all look so easy, but that’s class and technique right there. And of course former Newcastle manager Bobby Robson thought he had signed Peter, before he suddenly ended up at Glasgow Rangers (from Akademisk Boldklub) in the summer of 2000, when the 6′ tall striker was just 20 years old.

Peter is probably regretting that if he had signed for Newcastle, he would now have a Geordie accent, rather than the Glaswegian one he now has, and of course a Scottish wife. 😀

3 goals from from just seven starts for Newcastle United is a good record, and we know there’s a few more goals there from Peter, as Alan Shearer starts to build a more attacking side at Newcastle, that will in the future score lots of goals. Well that’s what we hope,  in any case.

Peter is already a firm favorite with the Newcastle crowd, and we are told the Dane is also very popular with Newcastle’s players, and we have also heard – from Rangers fans no less – that his wife is extremely beautiful (we’re still trying to find a photograph of Teresa, his Glasgow born wife, who is now 24).  Peter wed the former Scottish model at Loch Lomond in the summer of 2007, and they still own a £1.3M home in Glasgow.

Following his Gallowgate strike on Monday night, the fans went crazy, as did Peter, because the 3 points were ours, and we could be saved after all.  And tomorrow if we can get the win the same will be true, and we could even be safe tomorrow night – wouldn’t that be a cause for celebration?

And surely Peter’s performances will get him along term contract at Newcastle in the summer.

Peter talked about Monday njight’s game and tomorrow’s game against Fulham:

“It’s a great feeling when you see the fans like they were on Monday and when they’re singing your name,”   “It does wonders for your confidence. I just hope it’s not the last time they sing it.” “I’d love to score again this season and hopefully after that I’ll stay at the club, I’d really love to.”

“We can leave my future until after we’re safe, my number one priority is helping to keep us up.” “It’s still very tight down there and we need a win on Saturday.”   “We’re all desperate to keep this club in the Premier League and we’re confident now after Monday we will do that.” 

Any player, like Peter, who responds to the crowd is at the right club at Newcastle United.

We can assure Peter, that if he gets another goal tomorrow afternoon, the crowd will be singing his name during the game.  A hat-trick from Peter, and heaven knows – he may even be knighted by tomorrow night.

We like Peter a lot, both as a player and a person, and trust the club will do the right thing, and give him a nice new contract at the end of the season – that’s the least he deserves.

Comments welcome.

    Just found this lads – looks as though Shearer is doing all he can for a phsycological boost by having the lads train at SJP – did the same on Monday too:

    He’s a good lad, and I hope we keep him.

    It seems to me that out of him and Jonas, whichever one comes off the bench is the one that gets the good game. I’d start Loverboy tomorrow on the wing and bring Jonas on for him if Fulham manage to pin him down.

    Other than that, I think Shearer should stick with exactly the starting line up and subs that he used on Monday.

    A lot of people said MO had a lousy game – and he certainly looked way off his best – but I still think if he’d not been doing his thing for 70 minutes the defenders would have been able to handle Martins a lot better.

    It’s going to be close, but I think we may just scrape it tomorrow. 2-1?

    It’s so so frustrating watching Jonas. I think his dribbling ability is top notch and his work rate is unquestionable, the only problem is end product! So good on the ball, yet problems releasing it. I think he’s more of a ‘slide the ball through’ to a striker player, sitting just behind them. He needs to get inside more and release it, because god knows he can’t cross it from the sideline.

    Peter is the rock on which St Shearer will build our new cathedral.

    “Quite honestly Peter made it all look so easy, but that’s class and technique right there.”

    Ed – I could have scored that.

    I do like Mr Loven Loven though. He’s added some missing pace to the team and has a good work ethic.

    Lovenkrands isn’t good enough.

    If we want to progress we need better than him.

    If we generate the same atmosphere as Monday we will win. Fulham have only won 2 away all season!

    lovenkrands how can you say that if we want to progress we need to keep him ok he isnt a world beater but he is a thoroughly decent player and playing better than some people on twice his wages

    Stuart79 – Probably right but who knows where we can realistically set our expectations at the minute?

    All I’m saying is that he’s not a good enough player for us if we want to progress up the league.

    If we are going to be in th bottom half every season then fair enough but we need better than him to get into europe.

    I’m saying it now because he’s scored three goals. He won’t get any better and everyone will be slagging him off next season when he doesn’t score the goals!

    Stuart why can’t we keep him on atleast as a squad player on not too ludicrous wages? He’s taken goals this season, fair play to him, if we unload every player we hate this summer the reason we won’t progress will be having a paper thin squad.

    C`mon Ed. the guys a 29 year old ok player, but nothing special, with the better part of his career behind him.
    We have more than one like him, thats why we are in the position we are.
    If we win the morra, we should be looking to get rid of a few and bringing in some talented youngsters, dont want to find ourselves in this position again next season.

    @Chuck – couldn’t agree more.

    Lovenkrands, Viduka, Butt, Owen, Duff, Smith –all with their best days well behind them — and people wonder why we are in trouble!

    Too many times we have bought other team’s Cast Off’s and it has nearly cost us our premiership status. Enough is enough. Get rid of the lot.

    Lovenkrands goal v Boro was a tough one to finish.

    Great finish actually.

    We can’t get rid of everyone lads.. and I happen to think Peter has done well enough to merit a year’s contract. The important thing is to win against Fulham and I don’t care who scores for us as long as it goes our way…Howay the lads

    Give him a 2 year contract IMO.

    Next year if we stay up; consolidate (12th place rougly)

    Year after; top half (9th)

    Season after; think about Europe.
