Kevin Nolan has been one of Newcastle’s top players this season, and it was perhaps fitting that he scored one terrific goal last night after 73 minutes, to get Newcastle the 2-1 victory over Sheffield United.
Kevin Nolan – scoring his wonder goal last night
It was Kevins’ 15th goal of the season and after the game Kevin talked about the Newcastle fans:
“You can offer your thanks through the media and things like that but it’s always nicer to be able to do it in person and that was just my way of showing our appreciation.”
“For what they’ve done after sticking by us after last season, that was just a way of thanking them for their support.”
“To have nearly 50,000 fans there I don’t think you’d get that anywhere else. I was blown away – it was incredible, ridiculous really.”
“So a massive thanks goes to all of them and hopefully now we can go on as a team, the fans included, to bigger and better things.”
“We hope to give them a lot more to cheer about during the next few weeks and celebrate the promotion by winning that title for them.”
Kevin has been a big figure both on and off the field for Newcastle this season, and it wouldn’t surprise us at all if he was appointed club captain in the summer, since Nicky Butt will not be at Newcastle next season, at least as a player.
This is also the most goals Kevin has ever scored in one season, and he looks a bargain buy at just £4M, doesn’t he?
