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 itâ€™s been made from the heart and not the head. But that just further supports our theory they really have no idea what theyâ€™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 â€“ and if that happens it will make the coverage of Kevin’s appointment at Newcastle again â€“ a small insignificant story.
Letâ€™s face it, Newcastle now will have a lot more support than ever before, and thatâ€™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 â€“ 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, thatâ€™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.
