Kevin Nolan is one of the main leaders of the Newcastle United club, and today Kevin has talked about relegation and staying on the Premiership next season – the job is still not done at Newcastle.
Kevin Nolan – epitomizes the new Newcastle spirit
Kevin has said some good things today, which will give Newcastle fans a lift (not that we need one right now), because Kevin is determined that Newcastle will survive in the Premiership next season.
This is what Kevin said earlier today:
“If anything, relegation has brought us all closer together. It has made Newcastle United a better club.” “What has happened, Newcastle will be stronger for it in the long term, I really believe that.”
“After what happened last season there are a few of us who feel we have a point to prove in the Premier League.” “That is for next season, and when we come back in pre-season we are going to come back with the bit between our teeth.”
“We have to learn from what has happened to this football club, Newcastle United has to learn from the mistakes which put us in this situation in the first place.” “I am not saying it was a bad club before, but I can remember watching them and really enjoying watching them, but those days have gone.”
“We have to keep our feet on the ground.” “We are looking forward to being back in the Premier League and every team will gain our respect.” “We have already proved you are never too good to go down, and we have to make sure that does not happen again.”
We’ve said a few times that Kevin is the type of player who was born to play Newcastle, because is has guts galore, not to mention he looks a more than decent player this season, and seems as good as he ever was at Bolton Wanderers.
We’ll not even mention the 15 goals the Liverpudlian has scored this season.
With Nicky Butt expected to retire at the end of the season, who would be a better captain than Kevin Nolan for Newcastle next season?
We cannot get carried away about next season in the Premier League, even though Chris Hughton’s Newcastle side has completely dominated the Championship this season, and shown they can scrap it out with the best of them.
And Kevin is happy the lads were able to celebrate in front of their fans last Monday night when the lads got their 4th win in a row when they beat Sheffield United 2-1.
“It was important we celebrated promotion in front of our own fans.” “There is a bit of a gap between us and West Brom and the next step is to win the league
” We are in a fantastic position and that is what we are focused on doing.” “West Brom are a really good side and they have pushed us all the way. They are going to keep chasing us, but we are in the driving seat.”
There are three reasons why Newcastle will continue fighting like hell through the end of the season:
- Their professionalism and pride will allow nothing less
- Newcastle United want to win the league
- The Magpies have a chance to go unbeaten at home for the first time since 1907
The best way to finish this wonderful season is to win the last 5 games, which will not be easy, but that will give the lads a 9 game winning streak to end the season.
