Lovenkrands Dedicates Goal To His Late Father

Newcastle striker Peter Lovenkrands has tonight dedicated his goal against West Brom to his late father, who died last Friday.

Peter Lovenkrands – dedicates his goal to his late father

Lovenkrands scored Newcastle’s equalizer after 55 minutes with Newcastle twice coming from behind against a determined and good looking WBA side, for whom Dorrans was outstanding.

It was a bit of a surprise when Peter wanted to play, and started the game, after scoring a terrific hat-trick last Wednesday, in the 3rd round FA Cup replay against Plymouth Argyle.

The Danish International, was not surprisingly, extremely emotional after he scored, pointing to the heavens, and got a terrific ovation after he scored from the warm Geordie crowd.

After the game Peter said the goal was for his father and he told Sky Sports:

“It was a difficult decision to play, but one that I wanted to make for my father who was a big football fan,”

“I’d like to dedicate that goal to him.”

It is the mark of the man that he played tonight and scored – well done Peter – we’re proud of you – and we’re sure your Dad is too.

    So! no post game writeup from Workeys gang, hey you guys are really falling behind in the blogging sweepstakes.
    Aint gonna sell many shirts that way.
    Ed. has obviously been working on upgrading the site, thought y`all were gonna be busy with your new gig Ed.
    Anyhow nice to have you back in business.
    Hmmm, barely getting a draw against W/Brom
    at home, with a Forest side gaining steadily.
    The signs are not good, we have to insure either a first or second place spot and have to start winning games.
    With the loss of our loan players we are again short of bodies and have to either make a couple of decent signings or bring in some people on loan, this is essential as missing out on promotion is not an option, if this club wants to be a permanent fixture in the PL.

    Instead of surrounding himself with hilarious fat blokes (obviously a new slimming ploy), Ashley should be concentrating on the pitch and the fact we’ve got to sign Danny Simpson and a bit of pace and creativity in the middle of the park or suffer the ignominy of being overhauled by the Trees and the Baggies in the 2nd half of the season. Someone to play on the right wing and protect the full-back is a must – and no, I don’t mean Nobby Solano.
    Centre-half and striker are NOT our weakest positions, and lord help us if CH really thinks they are.

    Great performance by the Peter Lovenkrands. Surprised that CH didn’t withdraw him to get the ovation he deserved. The fans would have liked to pay that tribute and he was played out by the finish.

    Nolan and Smith up against a nippy 5-man midfield had their work cut out. We need some pace, especially on the right.

    Firstly very mixed feelings at the end of the game today, definitely could have gone either way and I think overall a draw was just about a fair result.

    Honestly though this showed how important its going to be for us to bring in players this window. Shola while i admit is not back to full fitness was woeful today, responsible for the first goal with poor marking (wtf was he doing there anyway) and couldn’t find a pass all evening.

    I also felt Nolan had a fairly poor game by his standards, dropped back which was understandable but didn’t really support the defense well enough, would have been better off pushing him forward.

    Gutierrez I felt had a pretty good game, kept running and digging in, was nice to see him tracking back more and supporting Jose. Really hope we sign Simpson too. Peter has to of course be singled out for individual praise, his goal was outstanding, pure class, did his best to create space all game, will be one player we’ll be glad we tied down whether or not we make the prem.

    On this note what this underlined to me was how difficult achieving automatic promotion is going to be. West Brom and Forest on their recent displays have as much reason to believe they will be promoted as we do. Still confident.
