Our report late last night said the Daily Mail was suggesting owner Mike Ashley will try to bring Kevin Keegan back to manage Newcastle United. Mike’s statements today certainly seem to confirm that Keegan type attacking football is what he wants at the club again.
Kevin Keegan as England Manager – a second coming in the works?
Mike has vowed to get more involved at the boardroom level, and wants to see bold attacking football that wins games from Newcastle. Sound familiar?
Mike Ashley has today talked more about Newcastle United than ever before, and says he will definitely change the direction of the club plus the way they play, once the new manager is appointed.
His statements seem to back up the story in the Daily Mail about Kevin Keegan being enticed back to the club. Hey, for say the next 3 years or so, that would not be too bad a move for Mike to make. Not too bad at all. Mike could get back all the respect of the Newcastle fans in one single swift move to install Kevin as the next Newcastle United manager. That would be a clear statement of what Mike wants at Newcastle.
We think it would be hard for Kevin to turn down an offer similar to that which was made to Harry Redknapp. But things will need to move fast so Kevin can assess the playing staff, and see who is available to bring into the team in January – if indeed this is to happen.
But once the Newcastle fans get a taste of a second Keegan era, the second coming, Kevin may find it all too irresistible.
We hope so,
