Kevin Nolan – Andy’s Gone – It’s Time To Move On


We wanted to hear from the  Newcastle captain today, and Kevin’s done the right things and come out said the appropriate things.

Kevin Nolan – needs to rally the troops

And most importantly – Kevin has stressed it’s now time for Newcastle to move on without Carroll, who could possibly be out another two months with his thigh injury, by the way.

Nolan told the Evening Chronicle today:

“We’re all disappointed Andy’s gone. He’s a massive character.” “But he wouldn’t have been there last night, and wouldn’t have been there next week.”

“People move on. This club’s a massive club, and no player is bigger than it.” “We don’t know how long Andy’s going to be out for – eight weeks or so – and we’ve just got to put that to bed. He’s gone.”

“We’re all delighted for him on his move, but we’ve just got to get on with it.” “The main thing is we’ve got to do the best we can for Newcastle United.”

“The best for us is making sure we stay in this league, and I firmly believe we’ve got the quality in the squad to do that.”

Nolan didn’t support the two strikers as he normally does last night, although he’s more up field when the lads play a 4-5-1 formation.

But it was just a terrible game last night on an awful pitch, and Newcastle did not play well – it’s as simple as that – and we didn’t deserve anything from the game – and that’s what we got – nowt.

Kevin was disappointed by Newcastle’s performance:

“It wasn’t a great game. We feel so disappointed with the fact we’ve lost Shola after 10 minutes.“The game sort of petered out. They got their chance and took it.”

“It was just a dreadful night – losing Shola and the game – but I think neither team deserved to win.”  “You’ve got to make sure you don’t give sloppy goals away, but we’ve done that.

“At the end of the day we’re paid by the club to do a job, and we’ve got to step up. The lads have been champing at the bit and shouting that they want to be playing games, so this is the time.”

“They’ve got to take their chance.”

News that Newcastle will look at the free agent market to see if they can bring somebody in – and one of the strikers available is Frenchman  Jeremie Aliadiere, and while we don’t rate him too highly at all, he would certainly add to our capabilities.

Not sure if anybody better is available, but we’ll see.

And the lad would get tremendous support to do well for the club from the Newcastle fans, as the team is now in desperate need of somebody who can put the ball into the back of the net.

But Jeremie scored just 11 times in 78 appearances for Middlesbrough.

    the mood in the camp don’t sound much cop at the mo like.

    the boy – jeremie – i’d be annoyed even if he paid us to get a game. infact i’d sooner have – jeremy thorpe – & he’s broon breed like.

    Would rather give our youngsters Airey, Vuckic, Ranger etc a chance to develop then sign someone like Allidiere.

    Hi Fans,

    Your favourite marionette manager here again.

    Look, just a thought, but are there any players in the local footballing leagues who know how to regularly kick or head the ball into the goal net (as opposed to over the top or kicking the ground or missing the ball altogether or any of the other things our current chaps seem to get mixed up with)?

    If so, let me know at Mr AP (official manager, honestly I am) c/o Manager’s Office, St James’ Park broom cupboard, Newcastle, Yorkshire, nr Scotland somewhere.

    There’ll be something in it for you, I promise.

    Man City got a new face in on Monday, and now Tevez and Lescott are fighting over it. Also Ferguson warned all other premiership clubs to keep their hands off Howard Webb.

    Boater – One hundred percent correct. Why would we not literally insist that there is no deal if we don’t get NGOG to cover us, its a total joke.

    I don’t particularly rate NGOG but at least he would be better than we what we have,

    Figers crossed that Tiote comes back & does not get the red card again. (I’d probably hold him out, but the FA would fine NUFC for fielding a weakend team. Maybe even with Tiote, they will fine NUFC every week until some players heal !) He won’t score goals, but he should give our tugboats a little more time to get upfield. That won’t help vs. Arsenal, they will run circles around NUFC, but going forward there will be a few more chances at opposing goals.

    Diod any of you ever consider that Carroll may be permanently damaged by the thigh tear? That is a serious injury, and he might never be the same player again. Liverpool took him knowing he is crocked, and they are in aposition where they have had to take a serious risk to keep up and afloat.

    We have got to move on, there are a few players still out there that would surely want to get back into football so wouldnt be too problematic with wages a few here are:

    Albert Luque 32 – yes we all know him!
    Robbert Vittek 28
    Ivan Saenko 27
    Berkant Göktan 30
    Bonaventure Kalou 33
    Malcolm Christie 31
    Claudio López 36
    Shabani Nonda 33

    Not the best strikers in the world but what else can you expect for free.

    We need people in even if its for cover, 6 month contract, with the possiblilty to extend it at the end of the season if they perform well surely?!

    used to be fun watching kuqi celebrations but i work with a palace fan and he left them in 2009, he said he was shocking, couldnt score to save his life near the end of his time there.

    think he might have passed what he used to have when he was in the prem the first time

    Ewerthon looks like he would be worth an attempt. If he can get a work permit. Brazillians havent exactly had the best of time in the prem, but not as if that counts for everything.

    Or better still insisted on getting Sturridge on loan from Chelsea – Liverpool wouldn’t let Torres sign till they got Carroll, we could of played the same game with Chelsea.

    Never seen Ewerthon play but hell, he’s gotta be better than what we have. a scring record in Europe of over 1 in 3. Pretty impressive

    We need someone, that is blatantly obvious. Don’t count on it though
