Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan has today thanked the Newcastle fans for their fantastic home support at St. James’ Park this season.
Kevin Nolan – fantastic support from our fans
First of all let’s look at what Kevin said today, and then we’ll make a few points:
“They are important every week whether we are at home or away,” “The support they have given us this season and last has been fantastic.”
“The way they get behind us, it genuinely feels like you are with them. We understand how they feel, and hopefully they know they have got a team here who want the absolute best for Newcastle United.”
“Hopefully they will continue to support us the way they have done, continue to give us that fantastic support and then we will give them the results and performances that are needed between now and the end of the season.”
One of the statements that Alan Pardew made a few weeks ago which really hit us hard, was when he said he knew when Newcastle didn’t win, just what it meant to the Newcastle supporters – and heaven forbid if we lose.
And then Alan said if he thought about that too much, he wouldn’t be able to sleep at night. 😀
And Alan hit the nail on the head right there – because there’s no doubt that when Newcastle lose, it hits the Newcastle fans very hard indeed – and if you don’t believe that, then go and read the comments on our match report last Saturday.
It’s hard to criticize the Newcastle players for their efforts last Saturday against Everton, where basically we were not just good enough in that second half.
But the next time the lads play at home against Wolves three weeks tomorrow afternoon, we hope they’ll come out like the proverbial steam train – because that’s a game we should and can win.
A win against Wolves will not only take us 3 points further ahead of Wolves, but will take us 3 points closer to safety.
In fact if we can also win next week at Stoke City, we could be on 42 points at the end of the Wolves game, and then essentially safe in the Premier League for this seaosn.
That would be fantastic, and it has to be an enormous incentive for the Newcastle players in the next two games.
