Bobby Moncur was interviewed tonight on Sky Sports and Bobby has said he’s delighted with the appointment but it’s going to be a difficult and stressful job for Kevin.
But he’ll get all the support in the world form the Newcastle faithful around the world. And we would also expect this is a great way to put Newcastle United back on the football map around the world. That is a stated goal of both Mike Ashley and Chris Mort.
Kevin will lots of support from Chris Mort and the board to build the structure of the club including the youngsters. That’s a part of the game Kevin ignored the last time but things have changed enormously since 1992, when Kevin was first appointed.
But Keegan’s charisma and massive presence at Newcastle will do a lot to transforming the club this season.
In short we have 3 words about Kevin’s appointment today.
We cannot wait. 😀
