Kevin To Explain His Newcastle Vision Today

Kevin Keegan is expected to talk about his vision for the future of Newcastle United, at his press conference this afternoon, which is scheduled to start at 2 pm local time today.


Kevin Keegan – today’s press conference will put Newcastle back on football map

Kevin is very comfortable with the press of course, and will obviously be bombarded with all kinds of questions this afternoon. The press have gone almost crazy with excitement since the appointment was made – not to mention all Newcastle fans everywhere. 😀

Lots of those serious pundits have frowned on the decision however, saying it’s been made from the heart and not the head. But that just further supports our theory they really have no idea what they’re talking about, when they try to understand Newcastle United football club and it’s fabulous fans.

Unless you are born and bred as a Toon supporter, you have no idea what it means to support Newcastle United. And that’s a truism if ever we knew one.

We think Mike Ashley made the decision intuitively – that Kevin was indeed the right man – which is always more real and even more accurate than working through a decision with all kinds of logic involved (most of which is phony in any case).

At the press conference this afternoon, Kevin will likely talk about his vision for the club on the playing side of things in the next 3 years. One of those visionary targets will doubtless be to bring a trophy at long last to Newcastle – and if that happens it will make the coverage of Kevin’s appointment at Newcastle again – a small insignificant story.

Let’s face it, Newcastle now will have a lot more support than ever before, and that’s all across the world these days. We have received many comments and notes on this site, from people around the world, saying that they really hope we can get a team together that will able to stuff the Manchester United s and Arsenals of this world. (We can’t wait!).

Newcastle’s last major trophy was the 1969 Inter Cities Fairs Cup, with Bobby Moncur our great captain, but in England that run stretches back to the 1955 FA Cup when we hammered Manchester City and Don Revie 3-1, against the odds. We remember vividly watching tha game on TV, when the great Jackie Milburn scored with a header in the first minute from a corner – oh the memories – but back to this story – getting carried away again.

After the press conference today, Kevin will no doubt be concentrating hard on our game against Bolton Wanderers tomorrow. If we can win that game then all Newcastle supporters everywhere will have a great weekend, that’s for sure. In fact we are really looking forward to that game – who will play with Charles in central midfield? By the way, we expect one or two Newcastle players tomorrow to show us some good form we’ve never seen from them this season, that’s how confident we are of the Keegan effect – this time around.

Comments always very welcome – just keep them respectable for all our young supporters – thanks.

    I’m glad we went with our heart and not our head……after all you can get a team with all the skill in the world, but without heart and passion they are nothing!!! Super KK has already lifted the fans, so lets hope he does the same for the Newcastle squad. I give 100% support and faith that Keegan will be nothing but good news for the Toon.

    Buckle up . . . and hold on to your hats !

    I was listening to Talksport on the radio yesterday and so many negative people from around the country were ringing up calling us idiots saying we are a comedy club.

    This infuriates me as so many people in and out of the football world have so many comments to make about NUFC.

    KK i can honestly say i think EVERY fan is behind you 100%. Even the most negative and hard to please die hards will be excited inside of what you may be able to achieve.

    I dont think kevin should bring too many players in during january. We are not going to get relagated and i think he should have a look at the squad he has got. The only position for me would be another left back, cos we only have one. When the guys come back from africa we should be sound until the summer, then he will ahve a better idea of what he wants. And ben tozer, sorry i forgot bout him

    A point of note:

    The appointment of a manager for Newcastle United concerns the following groups of people only: The owner of the club (Super Mike), The board headed by Mr Mort, The Toon fans, the team, and of course the manager King Kev.

    The appointment does NOT concern anyone outside of that circle. It matters not what any of those fake W#NKER supporters or Pesemistic people of the press may think, so please if any of you Scum supporters are reading this then we recommend you point your cursors to the top right of your screen, where you will find a red box with an “X” on it, click the “X” and continue with your sad little lives.

    aye, at the end of the day it’s not about the tactics, the training methods, the training ground, the pitch. No my friends at the end of the day it’s about what’s in your heart. When you pull on that Black and White are you willing to give all ? So ya Wenger is a great coach and I have the utmost respect for the way Arse plays most of the time, but at the end of the day how many of those lads really are doin it cuz they are wearing the red and white?

    aye, it may be more about the heart up here in Newcastle, but thats how it should be.

    The one thing that the period since the sacking of Sam has proven beyond doubt is that the press, radio and TV know very little in reality and just make up stories to fill pages and news bulletins. No wonder people on here were complaining of being driven to distraction!!
    Theyre still at it BTW – when you tot up the list of players we are about to sign my latest count is 15 lol

    It’s all about what happens out there on the green thing. And if there can be 11 guys bleedin black n white out there.. and 52000 bleedin black n white in SJP. Now that’d be worth bottlin.. The spanners down the road may have a stadium of light, but i gotta say, we’ve got the stadium of heart and soul. 3 zip saturday night 🙂

    If anybody missed the Press conference – I’ve put it on my You Tube channel – just click on the UTD111 above or use the address – I’ve had to split it into 4 files because of the limits YT puts on uploads but its all there.
    Cheers – Mick
