Kevin Nolan – 12 goals is his record for a season

And Kevin, who was named Carling Player of the Month for October, will go into today’s game with 8 goals already to his name, and that’s after just 15 games of the 46 game Championship season – and one of those goals was in the Carling Cup.

Nolan scored more than 50 goals in more than 300 appearances for Bolton Wanderers, and is the type of player in midfield we’ve been missing since Gary Speed left the club, strangely  enough for Bolton Wanderers, where he played with Kevin for a few seasons.

And Chris Hughton has to take some credit for Kevin’s goals, by recognizing his goal-scoring prowess, and playing him further up-field, where he can be dangerous, and  the Liverpudlian almost scored his 9th goal of the season in the second half on Monday night, but for a good save by Blades’ goalkeeper, Ian Bennett.

Chris told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I am always delighted to score when we win games. I am always more delighted.”

“I scored 12 goals goals for Bolton one season, and if I can beat that then great, but the main thing is we take this club back into the Premier League.”

“That is what we are all striving for.”  “I have had a private box since I have come here, and all the family were there against Doncaster.”

“All my daughter ever says to me is ‘big goal, Daddy?’  “I think she is expecting too much, but in the last two weeks I have produced for her.” “That makes me happy, but nothing makes me more happy than us winning games.”

“As long as we win games, that is the main thing.”

For the record, Kevin and his wife have a beautiful 3 year old daughter called Jasmine, and they’re all angels at that age.

But we would ask her to keep the pressure up on her Daddy. 😀

We suppose when you’re on £60K/week, it’s peanuts to pay for a private box at St. James’ Park, but there again,  if Kevin can fire home 20 goals this season, he’d be worth the money.

A couple of goals this afternoon would be very good, Kevin – please.

By the way, we hear that next season, the private boxes at Sports Direct Park will be brought to you courtesy of McDonald’s.

That’s good of them.
