In Praise Of Peter Lovenkrands – A Key Man For Newcastle

12:31 pm, Tuesday, January 26th, 2010 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 1 Comment

Peter Lovenkrands could turn out to be Newcastle’s key man through the rest of the season.

Peter Lovenkrands - a top man – and not a bad footballer either


We carve out quite a few chances in front of goal, and what we need is an out and out goal poacher, who will put home the easy chances.  In Peter’s last two games, in which he has scored 4 goals, he’s shown he’s a player who can do just that.

Of course, as we now know, his season has been affected by first the illness of his father, and his recent tragic death.

But we expect Peter to get over that, and probably dedicate the season to his late father, and be a top man for Newcastle United for the rest of the season. He’s a top man – no doubt about that.

Certainly, as far as Newcastle fans are concerned, the Dane has covered himself in glory, in requesting to play in Newcastle vital home league game against WBA, in which he scored the second equalizer, and prevented Newcastle going down to a drastic defeat.

Peter is set to return to the Newcastle United team against Crystal Palace tomorrow night as he will try to score for the 3rd game in a row.

Newcastle manager Hughton is delighted to welcome back the Danish International for the vital midweek clash with The Eagles tomorrow night at St. James’ Park.

Chris said:

“Peter is OK and did some work over the weekend,” “He’s fine and will be available for Wednesday.”

“He’s scored four goals in his last two games so is obviously a man in form.”

“I’m sure he’ll be hoping to be involved and we’re very happy to have him back.”

We have every confidence in Peter, and while we have been surprised he had been off form in the early part of the season, we now know why.

And Peter has shown us he can be one of our key players through May, as we attempt to nail down promotion back to the Premiership this season.

The Miracle on the Tyne is still within our grasp.

Comments welcome.
