We put out an article last night thanking the Plymouth club and fans for being so magnanimous last night, and it’s good that Kevin Nolan and manager Chris Hughton have come out today to officially thank the Plymouth club, who were relegated last night.
Chris Hughton – celebrating with fans last night
This is what Kevin said today:
“It would have been easy and understandable if Plymouth had just wanted to get away and let us get on with things,”
“But it was magnificent what they did and showed what a proper club this is.” “I’m sure the fans were grateful because I know the lads were.”
“We wish them all the best for the future and hope they can make a quick return to the Championship next season.”
And Newcastle manager Chris Hughton, who was mobbed by fans last night after the game, also offered his best to Plymouth:
“We must spare a thought for Plymouth because that would not have been easy to suffer relegation while another team celebrates the title,”
“But they were dignified and credit must go to them. We wish them the very best for next season and thank them once again for their hospitality.”
The Plymouth Argyle club and the Green Army showed how dignified they were last night, and enormous credit and thanks goes out to them.
