Kevin Nolan Wants 6 New Players In Newcastle Squad

Kevin Nolan has warned Newcastle owner Mike Ashley to support Chris Hughton and sign six new players to bolster their squad for the season.


Kevin Nolan – squad needs 6 new players

The Liverpudlian has been more than pleased with the way Hughton and his assistant Colin Calderwood have helped to knit together a tight squad, in spite of an ownership crisis over the summer and still ongoing, and of  course relegation.

Hughton has won 6 of Newcastle’s first 7 games with 5 successive league wins without conceding a goal. Not too bad – not too bad at all.

But Nolan is savvy enough to realize that a few injuries could leave Newcastle in a desperate situation, with such a thread-bare squad.

Nolan said today:

“Chris has managed to keep a group of players together, albeit that we need more people coming in. We know that and the board has got to start backing him. Chris has been asking for that for six or seven weeks, and we’ve been asking as well.”

“He needs to be given the resources he requires to get us back to where we belong as quickly as possible. That is what is needed. This club shouldn’t be in this league, but it is and Chris is doing a fantastic job trying to get us out of it. I’ve got nothing but admiration for him.”

“What happens upstairs has got nothing to do with us, all we ask is that they give Chris a bit of support because he deserves that at this moment in time. Takeovers can happen or they can’t, Chris and Colin need that support and so do the players. Chris deserves that as credit for the way he has started the season, although we’re not getting carried away by that.”

The players themselves started the transformation at Newcastle when pre-season training started on July 1st, and of course Newcastle’s overall,  although rather small, coaching staff has performed wonders.

Add to that the faithful Newcastle fans, who have supported the players with everything they have this season. and it all adds up to a great start to the season.

But now we are left with the owner needing to do something that nobody else csan do –and that’s when the we get nervous and the anxiety starts.

Let’s face it, Mike Ashley is completely hopeless at Newcastle.

    They’ll be lucky if there’s six new towels in the dressing room.

    Nolan should shut up and play football and try and get back to the player he used to be when he was tipped for an England call up.

    3 new players IN soon would be fantastic – 6 is out of the question!

    The players need more cases of Glucozade Port, the world’s first alchoholic isotonic drink.

    In fact we could all need some if the squad isn’t bolstered. I agree that 6 new loaners is pretty unlikely, but MA would be complete fool to jeopardize this chance to go straight back up by being so stingy. I really don’t think he’ll sell given the start that we’ve had, but he’s got to protect the club’s chances of a rebound by getting some more players in. We have ’til November, so it’s not panic time yet, but given how things have gone, perhaps it is.

    the fact is our players and staff never get support from upstair at all. It’s joke that someone still think Mike Ashley and co. deserved some credit for our good run at this moment.

    Newcastlemole – no, he should shout as loud as he can as should Hughton and Calderwood, the non investment in the playing staff is yet another disaster waiting to happen and just like relegation, everyone except Ashley and Lambias can see it.

    Is it just me, or should Keegan stick that 8m compo-claim up his A$$?!

    The moron started the mess by resigning because Milner was sold and two latinos brought in, and for that he’s seeking compensation of 8 million quid?! I’ve lost all respect for that midget, let him rot in Scotland with his ridiculous Soccer Circus.

    Competiton: who is growing the best weed – Nolan for thinking we could get 6 players – or Kevin the Klown for thinking he can get 8 million for throwing his toys out of the cot (again).

    Jan Stavic – how anyone can claim to be a United fan and then label a legend like Sir Kevin a “moron” is beyond me. You should hang your head in shame.

    Both times K.K. was right(1) he wanted nowt to do with a plc,told the club so they didn’t listen so he walked .(2)was told he would have total control of transfers, then bought & sold players without his say so.And on both accounts he’s been proved RIGHT so Jan & Boa stop talkin shite remember who he was dealing firstly Fat Fred then Cashley the same man that wont give you shearer, the same person that has taken our club to the depths it has never seen before .so before you start spewing your shite again think about what your saying shut your mouths and give your arse a chance (by the way loyal toon supporter for over 42 year)

    tuka, totally agree.
    K.K was given a contract and it was not followed. If he stayed and we were relegated everyone would think it was his fault! K.K lived and breathed the toon and was kicked in the teeth by M.A, he did not deserve that and walked , and rightly so. It would be great to see K.K win his case and then after the club is sold give the settlement back to the toon, it is highly unlikely but by the same token it would not surprise me. What a gesture that would be, would it not? It would be a great kick in the nuts for Cashly too.

    My honest opinion is that Sam Vokes is better than Andy Carroll. I am yet to be convinced by any of Carrolls performances for us, yet I have been very impressed with Vokes over the past 2 years.

    WE still have players like Kadar, Tozer and Lua Lua with first team experience and more than capable of playing in the first team. Not to mention a clutch of other reserves well able to slot into this league. So I don’t see that we need desperate signings although a few good ones similat to Simpson would’t go amiss.
    I didn’t know we had signed Vokes but whether he is better or not than Carroll is irrelevent so long as he does the biz for us.
