Kevin Nolan is a down to earth player who doesn’t care too much how Newcastle play right now, as long as they can continue to get the wins.
Kevin Nolan – continue to win is what we want
Kevin told the Evening Chronicle today:
“It’s not the prettiest sight at the moment, and not what the fans want, but hopefully in the next four or five games we can settle it all down again and get some results.”
“At this moment in time we’re all enjoying our football, that’s the main thing.”
“I don’t want to start calling myself a bully, I’ve never been a bully.” “I like to be called a finesse player!”
“But I do enjoy working hard and getting stuck in.” “Myself and Andy worked together well against Plymouth.”
“We’re missing one of our biggest players in Shola Ameobi, but since Andy has been back he has been fantastic.”
“We proved that we can cause problems for opposing defences against Plymouth.”
Hughton will probably revert to his safe 4-4-1-1 formation, which most Premier League sides seem to use these days to pack their midfield.
But we’d love to see a more attacking 4-4-2 formation with big boys Andy Carroll and Nile Ranger, both in good form right , together up front.
Ranger again worked his socks off against Peterborough on Tuesday night, with no reward, but Nolan believes he is certainly one for the future.
“Having Nile on the bench is fantastic – he’s got pace.” “He’s a young lad and we must look after him and make sure we keep his feet firmly on the ground.”
“We can’t get carried away with him at the moment.”
“We just want to help him to become a great player at this football club. That’s what we intend to do.”
We have enough class players that will be available tomorrow, to get the win we need, and for once it would be good if the lads can see off their opponents early, and not leave things uncertain until the final moments of the game.
But we definitely need all 3 points on Saturday in the late KO game.
