Kevin Nolan has had another good season for Newcastle so far, and will again lead out the Newcastle side at the Stadium of Light on Sunday lunchtime.
Kevin Nolan – Newcastle United captain for the ages
And if anybody thought that Kevin isn’t just as proud as punch to be the Newcastle captain, then think again.
Kevin talked today about being the captain of of the famous Newcastle United club:
“It is a marvelous moment every time I have the armband.” “I cannot thank Chris Hughton enough for giving me the captaincy.”“It is a proud moment every time, whether it is at Stevenage, the Stadium of Light or St James’ Park.”
“I love it – I know what it means to people, and I want them to know it means so much to me to lead this team and fantastic club out.
“It was great getting the hat-trick in the last game.” “It was one of the proudest moments of my career.”
“But I don’t care who scores this time as long as we get the right result.”
We said before Kevin became the official captain this season, that the Liverpudlian had all the attributes to be one of the best captains Newcastle have had for decades.
And there’s nothing that’s happened this season that makes us want to reconsider that in any way, shape or form.
For the record Nolan has played 79 times for Newcastle with 27 goals.
Kevin Nolan sweats blood for the Newcastle cause, and you cannot ask much more than that.
Howay The Lads!!
