It’s not just the Newcastle fans who are going wild about the return of Kevin Keegan to manage Newcastle United.
Newcastle Chairman and Manager – Chris Mort and Kevin Keegan
The plaudits and accolades for Kevin Keegan have been rolling in from everybody and it’s not that many negative comments that we see. Of course there are always the nay sayers who want to point out that the previous successes will never happen again. Ruud Gullit is one of these, and there are a few others – but that’s only natural because that’s life. Everybody is allowed to have their own opinion – even if they’re wrong! 😀
There are always a very few, who will never be thrilled or excited by anything in life. Not so for Geordies!
But it does seem that most managers and football people are only too happy to welcome back Kevin Keegan at Newcastle. It’s great for the game of football, and especially for English Football. The Premier league is by far the most popular football league in the world now, and the games are beamed throughout the world on TV.
And while the Newcastle fans will be in sheer ecstasy in an hour so so, we would wager a bet that the TV audience for this game will be huge. So Geordie fans today – make sure you have your hair combed before you go to the game. 😀
It’s no secret that Brazil are loved and admired for playing the game of football the way it should be played â€“ with skill and adventure. That was always how the beautiful game was meant to be played – beautifully.
And it’s almost like Brazil see themselves as the custodian of how to play the game.
Newcastle played great attacking football under Kevin Keegan the first time around, and they were very very popular and known as the entertainers. And if Kevin plays the same way this time, which he will, then Newcastle United will very shortly be one of the best supported clubs world-wide.
The difference from when Kevin was at the club the first time as manager, is that English Football now draws a huge worldwide audience, and we fully expect the Newcastle fan base across the world to grow enormously in the coming months.
Come to think of it isn’t that more or less what Mike Ashley said he wanted for the club when he bought Newcastle last summer – to make the Newcastle United brand a global brand? We think so.
Cannot wait for the game to start against Bolton Wanderers.
