Peter Lovenkrands seems one of the players at Newcastle who is happy enough to wait for his chance in the team this season.
Peter Lovemkrands – great competition for places
Peter also seems to be enjoying the camaraderie of the Newcastle squad, which has suddenly become much stronger than it was last season, with the addition of seven good players brought in during the summer transfer window.
And that’s even though Newcastle lost arguably their best four players in Carroll, Nolan, Enrique and Barton this year.
But Newcastle have made a fantastic start to the season are are currently in 4th position in the league, and also through to the last 16 of the Carling Cup.
Peter is enjoying things are Newcastle and the Danish striker epitomized the great spirit on Tyneside this season:
“We’ve got so many players waiting to play. We’ve shown that in the Carling Cup, where we’ve had players come in who have not played much in the Premier League doing a job there as well.”
“People know that as well so they know they need to give 100% every time or people will come and take their space.” “I think that shows with the way the boys are playing, they’re playing fantastic. It’s a great quality for the club.”
“It’s been fantastic. I don’t think anyone could have asked for more,” “It’s surprised a lot of people but we knew we had quality in the team. We knew if we got off to a good start we could build on that and we’ve done that.”
“That confidence has been showing as well in the dressing room and on the pitch. It’s been a fantastic effort and we’ve done well in the Carling Cup as well. We’ve had a great start.”
Newcastle are back in training today at the Benton facilities, after being given four days off for the International break, but of course a number of our players will be playing International football tomorrow night, both at the full level and at the U21 level.
Peter Lovenkrands has made five appearances for Newcastle this season and scored two goals at Nottingham Forest, in the 4th round of the Carling Cup.
And since joining Newcastle in January of 2009 as a free agent from German club Schalke 04, he has scored 28 goals in a total of 78 appearances for the club, which is not too bad at all.
Peter will be getting ready with the rest of the squad, for what is turning out to be a big test for Newcastle this coming Sunday afternoon, when Newcastle play Tottenham at St. James’ Park.
A win in that game will keep Newcastle at least in 4th position in the Premier League.
