Keegan’s Unlimited Belief in Himself and Newcastle


Kevin Keegan yesterday gave a press conference which lasted around 20 minutes and should be watched by every Newcastle fan, hopefully before the game today with Bolton Wanderers, which kicks off at 5-15 pm this afternoon.

Kevin Keegan – great belief in himself and Newcastle United

For those youngsters who may not have seen Kevin in action, it is a joy to watch. He seems so relaxed in front of the press, because he just tells the truth from the heart, and it’s little wonder why the press and other managers have such a high regard for the Armthorpe, Doncaster born world football giant personality, who stands 5’8” tall. He is wonderful mentor for all the players at Newcastle United.

Watching the press conference, which is available on YouTube, was big big news yesterday in world football, and certainly Kevin gave the press lots to talk about. He addressed almost everything imaginable from himself, Newcastle United, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen,. Joey Barton, attacking football, Mike Ashley, Chris Mort and the southern media. He told the southern press they just don’t get it, and probably never will. Some of them then tried to have some philosophical discussion on that, which just further proved there’s no hope for them. 😀

The confidence he has in his own ability is almost staggering, and his belief in himself and the club appears endless.

That kind of thinking of course, will be quickly passed onto his players, and we’ll see some of that today, hopefully, against Bolton Wanderers.

It also looks like Alan Shearer could join the club as a coach, and while we didn’t think this could work previously, we have a feeling the two of them can work well together for the good of Newcastle United. They can both dedicate themselves to the club and then there’ll be no problems at all. If that happens there’ll be no limit to the inspiration the players will get from Keegan and Shearer in the dressing room – that’s for sure. Warning to other clubs – watch out!

We think Alan wants to join Kevin, because it sets him up as the next manager of the club, which is good for him and great for the club. We would then have a management succession plan already in place. 😀 We also think that Alan has been told he needs to get some experience under his belt, before he will ever manage his home town club.

If we can beat Bolton today and then have Alan join us early next week – that would be even more Newcastle heaven, which some of us are already in.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    bribed my co-worker with an xbox to cover my shift so i can go to the game tonight!

    lets get a pacey box-to-box midfielder in- diego would be perfect and a few squad players, probs on loan as no-one too hot wants to move in jan.

    was anyone else slightly dubious when keegan was announced but after a few hours loved it!!

    I agree getting Sir Alan in would be good business – preferable as No2 so he can take the flak onj Kevs behalf. I like the idea of succession planning too – it was the approach that made Liverpool so successful (for example).
    Can’t wait for tonight – I’ll prob be in the ground as soon as the gates open woohoo! Found me old KK wig BTW lol

    I am so glad to see K.K. back and i hope that A.S. will join him but I feel that we do not need to go slap dash and spend millions in the transfer window. I think that kevin has enough talent at this time to ensure a reasonable finish this time around. He should look around him over the remainder of the season and pinpoint his priorty buys and then go full speed after them in the summer and really have a team capable of the flair football which all supporters crave and also compete at the very highest level in all cometitions.

    If Shearer is to be the next manager then only Kevin Keegan could have been appointed. Keegan is just about as big, and to many people a bigger part of Newcastle than Shearer. We’ve all heard the stories about Shearer being a dodgy guy but there’s none of that with KK just pure, unrivalled passion for football, for Newcastle, for success!!

    Had we gone with Houllier or Deschamps, they would have the Shearer factor hanging over their head, they would know that, as would we. Every time the team lost it would be brought up. With Keegan however, he’s such a legend and loved by the Geordie faithful that he has no chance of having calls for his head after 6 months…unless we get relegated hehe.

    Shearer will probably fade into the background under Keegan, as the King will be everywhere with those stunning raido interviews, press conferences and newspaper columns spurring the fans and the players on to go and win everything!!

    No real pressure on Keegan he has 100% backing, even those who didn’t fancy him, will get behind him, if there are any boo-boys for Keegan, expect them to get a good old-fashioned lynching from the REAL toon army.

    HAWAY KEEGAN. HAWAY THE GEORDIES.

    HAWAY THE TOON!!!
