Kevin Nolan is looking forward to playing on Sunday against Sunderland, the team he made his Newcastle debut against a year last February.
Kevin Nolan – the Newcastle captain
We remember that game well and we thought Kevin showed some leadership before the game even started when he was doing all the talking in the huddle before the game – and it was his first ever appearance for the team. 😀
Well he’s now the official Newcastle captain and we look to Kevin to not only have a good game himself on Sunday, and maybe get in among the goals, but also to rally the troops, because we desperately need to win this game.
Nolan told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I made my debut for Newcastle and it was in the Tyne-Wear derby – it was totally unbelievable for me.” “I knew what it was all about straight away.”
“I was on cloud nine to sign for Newcastle and then play a few days later in the big derby which means so much to the Geordie people.” “I enjoyed that day. Hopefully, on Sunday, I will be really enjoying it again. It will be a good battle.”
Nolan will almost certainly return to the starting line-up against Sunderland, and we think Newcastle will play 4-4-2 with the same team that beat West Ham.
“We will need 11 captains out there on Sunday.” “I am the club captain, but there are so many big influential players on the day and they can all handle it.”
“They know exactly what is needed.” “Hopefully, this will be a catapult to start off a good home run.” “As people know, it has not been too good at St James’ Park, but hopefully this can be the turning point.”
Kevin is right, and we’ll need every single player in a Newcastle black and white shirt to play their hearts out for a win on Sunday afternoon.
We just have to break this streak of bad form at home, and who better to do that against then Sunderland?
Howay The Lads!!
