Bolton were interested in resigning Kevin Nolan when Newcastle were relegated, but it seems that Kevin Nolan was never too interested in that idea.

Certainly when a transfer was brought up regarding Kevin in the summer, his agent continually said his client’s aim was to help get Newcastle back into the Premier League at the first attempt.
Kevin talked to the Journal this morning:
“I’ve got to be honest, since I arrived, I have enjoyed every minute. Don’t get me wrong, the last day of the season was the worst time of my life.”
“But the next day, I went for a pint with my dad and it was like ‘I can’t wait to get back’.”
“We got together as a squad of lads, and as a staff and came together as one. We said where we want to be, what we want to do, and we’ve managed to do that so far.”
“It is only a start. We are only nine games in. There is a long, long, way to go, but it is the start we wanted and hopefully we can continue it because the games come thick and fast in this division.”
“It was important we got off to a good start. All the teams which have gone down have done well. We had a blip against Blackpool but we bounced back. We have two games at home next and we have to get maximum points.”
We’ve certainly made a great start so far, and that can get even better by securing home wins against QPR on Wednesday night, and Bristol City on Saturday.
Howay The Lads!!
