Kevin Nolan has this season made himself part and parcel of the new Newcastle United, which he hopes will continue with the success he has helped create this season
Kevin Nolan – has been brilliant for Newcastle this season
Nolan told The Sun today:
“It would have been easy for a lot of players to walk away but this is no ordinary club.”
“When you’ve got 50,000 people turning up every week to roar you on, and making it so intimidating for opponents, you know that you owe it to them as much as anyone.”
“What’s happened this season is great, but that is only the first step. The next one is to make sure it never happens again.”
Newcastle’s season has been almost a miracle since last August, and many people at the club are due huge plaudits, but none more so than manager Chris Hughton and his assistant Colin Calderwood, and one of his top players, both on and off the field – Kevin Nolan.
Kevin has done almost everything this season at Newcastle, including leading the goal-scoring charts with 18 goals so far this season, and showing a spirit and determination that few players showed last season, in Newcastle’s disgraceful relegation season, we’d all like to forget.
But Kevin is adamant that the new unlikely manager at Newcastle, the quiet and unassuming 51 year-old London-born Chris Hughton deserves the praise more than anybody else, along with his more than able assistant, Stranraer-born 45 year-old Colin Calderwood.
“The credit goes to Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood and the way they’ve prepared us.”
“They have not allowed anyone to fall below the standards they have set out all season.”
It’s almost a miracle that the manager and assistant manager at Newcastle this season have transformed the squad into such a professional outfit, where all players work for each other, and the team is the most important thing.
It’s been so refreshing to watch a Newcastle team, not only play well most of the time, but show that spirit and passion that has always been with their supporters.
All the players and coaches at the Newcastle club have done so well this season, that the pride and passion that is Newcastle United, has been resurrected in fairly short order.
As life-long fans of the club, we’re proud of them all.
Howay The Lads!!
