Sky Sports have just reporting direct from Newcastle, just beside Grey’s Monument, and seem to be all over the news of Kevin Keegan’s sensational return to Newcastle (excuse the use of sensational – but it really is).
Mike Ashley – is as excited as any other avid Newcastle fan
Sky Sports news has been all over the news about Kevin Keegan, and of course reported on today’s press conference which was handled expertly by Kevin Keegan and Chairman Chris Mort. This press conference today will go a very long way to improving both Newcastle’s image and the Newcastle United name in the Football world.
Sky Sports said after their Newcastle report, which of course led their news, that Newcastle United were now the most newsworthy team in the Premiership – and were not even in the top four.Â We’ll have to fix that.
And it seems Harry Redknapp has been doing his very best to tell anybody who will listen that Newcastle United are a fantastic club.
Harry was interviewed on the piece, and said Newcastle have fantastic fans, a fantastic new manager in Kevin Keegan, a great owner in Mike Ashley, and a wonderful chairman in Chris Mort. Quite a few adjectives used there by Harry.Â You would even think Harry was trying to make sure he’s in the good books of the Newcastle club. Â 😀
But to be fair to Harry, he’s always been a good man, and he genuinely agonized over joining Newcastle, and we just think he feels better that the fans got the manager they really wanted – King Kevin.
Don’t be surprised if there is a renewed concentration on Newcastle United in the Premiership now, with Kevin back in charge. All we need is a decent win tomorrow, and things will be back on the right track.
But it’s not just Newcastle fans who seem to be excited about what’s happened this week at Newcastle United. We have had lots of messages from supporters of other clubs, wishing the club the very best, and to “stuff the Arsenal’s and Manchester United’s” of the Premiership League. Those are not our words but we know what they mean.
It’s has been an historic week for Newcastle United – and we MUST finish it off with a win tomorrow against Bolton.Â While we don’t expect Kevin to replicate Bobby Robson’s home win of 8-0 against fellow strugglers at the time – Sheffield Wednesday – we’d be very very happy with 3 points and a few goals.Â Â 😀
