Farewell Peter Lovenkrands

Loven is leaving!
I just wanted to write a small piece about Peter Lovenkrands after hearing he is one of the eleven players that are supposedly due to leave the club in the summer.

For me he has been nothing but a true professional in his two spells at St James’ Park and his goals helped us gain promotion after a tough relegation season.

The “Peter Lovenkrands, Peter Lovenkrands, signed on a free from Germany, Peter Lovenkrands” ditty followed him during his time at the club. For me, however, he shall always been Peter Lobsterpants, fished out of the sea near Germany, Peter Lobsterpants…. It’s amazing what away games and drink do to you!

Anyway he signed after a two week trial back in January 2009 and scored three times in twelve games in that relegation season. He was then released by the club but soon resigned to help NUFC battle for promotion back to the big league. He was in and out of the side early doors in the Championship season and in January 2010 he suffered great personal loss as his father passed away. After this McLoven seemed to turn a corner and formed an excellent partnership with Andy Carroll (boooo scab), scoring a goal every other game (16 from 32).

This strike partnership fired Newcastle back to the Premier League at the first time of asking and allowed Lobsterpants to make 25 appearances under Chris Hughton and then Alan Pardes in our first season back in the the big league. Last season, however, his appearances were restricted by signings of Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba and the coming of age of Sammy Ameobi, and he only managed to get eight games in, scoring three times.
Sadly the writing was on the wall….



I think most Toon fans will be sad to see him go but the way he handled the death of his father was an example of his professionalism on and off the field.

Thank you Peter Lobsterpants for playing for the Toon, scoring goals and being part of a trophy winning side at Newcastle United. Personally I will miss your Scottish, Danish and Geordie accent but I wish you well in the future, and hope your personality rubbed off on some of our younger players.

Cheers Peter.

  3. Anyone think we should have alan thompson back ??

    I remember some old gadgie on 5live, He had worked all around the world as a youth coach (Barcelona, brazil, far east) and hed been working with some academies over here developing young players and he said newcastle was the best academy and named pedro, steve stone and alan thompson as outstanding coaches.

    If hes that good he could do a job at the club again pardew mentioned bringing in more coaches on the radio the other wek, He got a bit of praise from the chron when he left for his work with the stiffs…

  4. CC….Depends what he was sacked for, allegedly for some “lifestyle issues” whatever that means, but so long as he hasn’t done owt bad then I’d have him back.

  5. Aye just read that, Aparantly his marriage has ended and his wifes accused him of having a midlife crisis, Getting pissed alot apparantly.

    Well have to wait and see apparantly still lives in newcastle and if he can get himsel sorted then he might be useful, We did have gazza working at the academy not so long back so the club have turned the odd blind eye… πŸ˜‰

  6. Cissokho is a beast, Would love a powerful attacking leftie bombing past jonas like juan sheet used to, Him and santon as attacking full backs 😯

    But pieters can play centre half as well which would be more useful to us… πŸ˜•

    😳 …yes I know mate. I can assure you it was solely strong cider and loud music, and no funghi involvement. I think I may owe a few people apologies. Sorry if I caused any offence to anyone. I’m surprised I haven’t been banned yet, the amount of shit I spout in the early hours of most Sunday mornings. I can be an annoying/crazy c*nt when pissed and always wake up embarrassed if I’ve been on here. Toonsy obviously has a lot more patience than Ed Harrison.

  22. Toby, haven’t seen that much of him, one season in the top flight, has an eye for goal as MDS said…..fecker scored against Real Madrid last season in the first few seconds πŸ‘Ώ , wouldn’t have thought he’d cost a great deal.

  23. Mirror reckons we are in for Yacine Brahimi as he is unsettled at Rennes and has asked for a transfer. Apparently Carr is really keen on him and been watching since most of last season. He is of Algerian decent but would play for France.Borussia Monchengladbach also want him. Mirror also state we are very hopefull of the Debuchy signing. Make of it what you will lads ‘n’ lasses. πŸ˜‰
