Kevin Nolan didn’t have a particularly good game last Saturday and was guilty of missing one golden opportunity to score when he through one on one with the goalkeeper – but Gilks saves it – again.
Kevin Nolan – competition for places is great!
But Kevin is a leader at Newcastle, and he came on Newcastle TV after that game, and said two things – that they were terribly disappointed they messed up – and he vowed the Newcastle players would pout things right again – soon.
You cannot accuse Kevin Nolan, who returns to his place of birth tomorrow – that he is not brutally honest about things.
And Kevin is pleased that the Newcastle squad is now a lot stronger than they were, and that competition for paces has heated up big time at the club.
This is what Kevin told the Evening Chronicle today:
“It’s great. Last week we had 11 versus 11, and we could have put the reserves out.” “It’s really good. That’s what you want – people breathing down your neck.”
“It’s going to give Chris tough decisions, but he’s a strong enough man to make those decisions.” “He’s brought them in, and those are the kind of decisions he wanted.”
“Hopefully, we’ll get the best out of them in the coming months.” “There are a few lads who were disappointed, as they didn’t get on, it’s been an interesting week.” “We’ve been demanding smiling faces, and looking forward to the next game at Everton.”
Well, the lads now have the chance to put things right, after last week’s appalling result.
We have to hope they do just that.
