Hughton Decision To Use Nolan Upfield Has Paid Off


Chris Hughton is ready to sign an improved contract at Newcastle , although he has two years remaining of his current deal from the start of this season.

Colin and Chris – new deals for both coaches

And as expected, Hughton’s competent assistant, Colin Calderwood,  is also set to be rewarded with an improved financial package.

Hughton has been thankful for the goals – seven so far this season, of Kevin Nolan and Chris talked this morning about how he has used the former Bolton player more up front this season:

“What I wanted to do was play Kevin a little bit higher up the park.” “From midfield, or from an advanced midfield position, Kevin can get himself into positions to score goals.

“It’s a nice option for me.”  “This is a midfield player who can start a little bit higher, or break from midfield.”

“He always had an eye for goal when he was at Bolton.”  “One thing that possibly wasn’t mentioned when we took him was that it was post-operation.”

“He had a small operation on his foot, and I’d say, probably at this moment, he’s fitter than any time he’s been at the club, and certainly, that’s going some way towards his form.”

Kevion scored again at Scunthrope last Tuesaday to end Newcastle’s drought and Kevin is probably the most likey to score for Newcastle tomorrow.

Kevin Nolan is a great lad, and he’s the type of gutsy player Newcastle fans have always loved to have in the side.

Let’s hope Nolan can break through and get us some goals tomorrow, because there’s no doubt about it – tomorrow is a very important game for us, and we need all 3 points.

    Isn’t this pretty much the same story as the last thread, with a slight change in the wording? Quiet news day Ed?

    Mike Ashley had the chance to make big difference when we got relegated end of last season. He had at his disposable Alan Shearer To start a fresh this season & release the overpaid & underrated players & let Alan get the players he wanted & get on with job.

    What did he do parted with Alan & he brought in Joe Kinnear. You wonder about his acumen in business after poor old Joe illness did not appointment top manager & let Chris get on with it.
    I must say the financial advisers who advised him before he bought the club, he should sued them.
    Before we bought our property we did get surveyor to survey the property & just make sure it was sound investment before buying it, this is common sense.

    What did do; well that’s history. He can’t sell the club & having to cough up money for the lies he & his cohorts did over Kevin Keegan. Bring in crap advisers mainly London Mafia.
    Downward slide out of Premier League.

    Now we’re in the Championship & where doing well under Hughton & Calderwood they’re going to be offered full time managers job. Sorry this will be backwood step.
    The only solution to get over this past year is for Mike Ashley either invest & get top manager if he doesn’t want Alan Shearer. If not please Sell
