With all the excitement and passion that will be at St. James’ Park before tonight’s game against Stoke City you would think that passion would spill over to the players.
Â Kevin Keegan – should inspire players tonight just by his presence
The game tonight against Stoke City has been delayed by 15 minutes probably to give MikeÂ Ashley and Chris Mort a chance to introduce Kevin Keegan in the center circle and you can bet Sky Sports will be there in droves as it’s been all over their news since the announcement was made.
The players, who don’t really know about the history or passion of the club will get a real introduction to that tonight.Â And we would expect a few of them to be really inspired by Newcastle new management appointment.
Stephen Taylor was a wide-eyed ball boy during the Keegan years and he may look around 7 foot tall tonight, as he tries to take in the fabulous news that Keegan is coming back to the club.
But if the presence of Keegan can’t inspire some of our players to produce tonight, then maybe nothing can – and they may find themsleves being moved out, sooner rather than later.
We cannot believe Kevin will have too much use for the likes of Carr, Cacapa, Geremi and even our captain Alan Smith, unless he starts to play Alan up front which is by far his best position, but not in midfield.
Also, young Ben Tozer, our new 17 year-old signing from Swindon is probably pinching himself to see whether this has all been a dream for him over the last 10 days. He was already talking about how great the fans and club are – to the newspapers back in Swindon – and the boy’sÂ seen nothing yet. Â Â 😀
We need a win tonight more than ever – and we expect the players to run themselves into the ground to give that to the ever faithful fans of our great Newcastle United Football Club.
Comments very welcome.
