Peter Lovenkrands – plenty of goal-scorers up front

The Danish International said today:

“We look very strong up front. We have a lot of good strikers to chose from, and all of us are capable of scoring at this level.”

“Probably people thought with the players we lost over the summer, it would be difficult for us this season up front, but we now have plenty of options and I think we are starting to see that now.”

We lost  Michael Owen, Mark Viduka and Obafemi Martins in the summer and all these players were handsomely paid, but they  never really produced the goods at Newcastle, with Martins the only one coming close. Michael and Mark were nearly always injured, after all.

Harewood and Løvenkrands (kind of) have been added to the squad, and  Newcastle now have a bevy of forwards who can score goals in  Championship football.

Harewood is a doubt for Saturday with a foot injury, and it’s a little worrying that this is the injury that kept him out at Aston Villa all season, so let’s hope it’s not a recurrence of that specific  injury.

Peter continued:

“We have players who might not look out of place in the division above,”

“Andy Carroll is playing very well, you would never know he has not been around for that long with the way he’s playing. Nile Ranger is another good player who has settled in very well.”

“Shola is another one who people should not forget about. He is injured (missing until December with a stress fracture of the foot) but he will come back and do well.”

“I am also keen to play as many games up front as I can and we have done well to get Marlon on loan”. “Marlon will be a big asset for us. He has already shown that and he has already shown what he can do.”

“He is a great player and I think his experience and strength will be a big benefit. I liked playing alongside him, he is a good partner to have in that position.”

Peter is right, but we have to score those goals, since in our last two home games we were frustrated by QPR and Bristol City, and got just 2 points and  a single goal – not a good return for St. James’ Park.

Time to start on Saturday with banging those goals in.

    so it proves if we go up we need new set of forwards cause none of them could score in the prem that would cost us loads in terms of money..

    Apparently, Lovenkrands wants to play up front and not on the wing. OK. If he gets his chance I want him scoring and setting up others for chances. With Harewood injured now (don’t know how bad) he may get playing time as a striker. Hope he does well!! HTL
