Keegan Promises Newcastle Will “Have a Go”

Kevin Keegan was again front and center on Sky Sports TV tonight, and it looks like Kevin, in his 3rd time round at the club, will not disappoint.


Kevin Keegan – his new Newcastle United side will “have a go “

Kevin was interviewed again and talked about knowing what the Geordie Public looks forward to on a Saturday afternoon.

Kevin told Sky Sports News:

They’ve worked hard all week and the match for them is a bit like like people down South going to a theater. ” “They want to be entertained” 😀

“That’s our market here – we know that.” ” The fans don’t want us to play drably and win 1-0″

“They want to see exciting football and I can tell them – we will have a go.”

The comment about people in the South going to the theater to be entertained, was Kevin’s second jab at the South today – he had said earlier about the southern press:

“This is a not a normal football club, and that’s what people outside this area don’t understand, and you’ll never understand from what I’ve read recently”

Kevin doesn’t think he will want to defend dourly in any game, and seems very willing to bring back his attacking style of play to Newcastle United.

His first game back is tomorrow afternoon with a 5:15 pm KO against Bolton Wanderers .

We’re sure the Newcastle faithful will ensure it’s a memorable occasion for the club, for Kevin, for Mike Ashley and Chairman Chris Mort, and most of all – for themselves – because they definitely deserve it.

Comments welcome.

    Im worried bout tomorrow, i think we’ll win, but conceede many because our centre midfield will be very very lightwieght and with boltons burtes barging through, we should be worried.

    Oh God. In Irish sport, for years and still around a lot now, is this phrase this “give it a lash” attitude, it works, it does in fairness, the trick is to shake that attitude. It was difficult to try and install a professional we’ll do it, attitude.

    They’ll “have a go”, can’t wait. That’s all they can do.

    ive been thinking about boltons brute tactics, and worried a bit, i think lua lua should maybe start on the bench, with rozehnal playing center midfield along side nzogbia simply to put a bit of strength into the middle and stabilise the team

    my team would be

    carr cacapa taylor enrique
    milner rozehnal nzogbia duff
    owen viduka

    Fook off Shaz, if you don’t support the toon keep away from here, you are, apart from Sunderland, a fan of my least favourit team. Liverpool ar fooking Sh!t£. Long ball footbal and hit and hopers Oba Martins will tear you apart when he ges the chance, no-ones a BIG fan of Owen up here but we think KK knows what he’s doing and if the ~King thinkis it’s right can anyone disagree with a man who took a 2nd division team to the fight for the ultimate english title. Although he is the one that once proclaimed Keith Gillespie will be the best player in the world?

    Haway the toon and FOOK OFF SCOUSE W@NK5TAIN!!!!!

    nah i cant agree with you ant, i am a toon supporter but i cant agree that liverpool play bland long ball football. but i also think they could have done better with the money spent, bit like us in that respect (in previous years)

    what i dont understand is the influx of mackams scousers yidds coming on our blog, does your team not have a great site like this? boo hoo

    if you dont like keegan so what, i dont like our prime minister, because he is a fat bean eating pie gwoffing beer chugging cnut

    If we are long ball , than i would love to know how you describe your team.I literally fell asleep watching your lot the other night, i only tuned into watch Michael,felt sorry for him.having to go looking for the ball cos your useless midfield can’t get it to him.He was shouting at players cos they couldn’t get a simple pass in to him.He never had that problem at Liverpool, stevie was always threading it through for him.why don’t you judge Owen on the goals he used to score against you, rather than playing for your rubbish team now.He is too big for your club, time you got used to it.
