|West Ham United||Played||On||Off||Gls||Red||Yellow|
Midfielder Kevin Nolan joined Newcastle United in the January 2009 transfer window after a decade of service to Bolton Wanderers. Kevin established himself as first choice in the United line-up as an attacking midfield player but has also been used as a striker. He netted 18 goals in the club's 2009-10 Championship winning season and was given the captain's armband for 2010-11. Kevin again performed consistently with the highlight of his season coming in October when he netted a hat-trick as United defeated neighbours Sunderland 5-1 in the Tyne-Wear derby. He finished the campaign as leading scorer with 12 Premier League goals. Kevin is a former England U21 international. He left St James' Park in June 2011 and signed for West Ham United.
The toxic story of Arsenal and Arsene is set to roll on for at least another season.
The Premier League continued this weekend, with the first Friday night football of the new campaign.
