Kevin Keegan, still surprised that Jonathan Woodgate chose not to come to Newcastle United, talked about the remaining days of the transfer window this week.
Kevin Keegan – chance we’ll get no players in at all
He expects at most one player to come in, as he said today:
“There’s an evens chance of us getting one player in this week. To get two in now we’d be swimming the Channel, I think.â€
â€œBut you never know, we might surprise ourselves and the last week of the transfer window invariably sees clubs make decisions which make you think: ‘Wow, I never expected that.’â€
â€œWe’re only looking at Premier League players. We’re not looking to bring anyone in from abroad unless they were really world-class and established, and invariably they don’t come around in this transfer window.”
“I wouldn’t rule anybody out. We’re looking at every team and I’m sure everybody else is looking at our players as well.”
This will be a little disappointing to Newcastle fans, who were hoping for at least 3 good players coming in during the January transfer window. It’s made worse by the fact we know one very good player has turned us down in favor of moving to London.
But we also know we have some good players in the squad, and we have to be hopeful that Kevin can start getting the very best out of them. There’s still 15 league games remaining this season, enough for us to start climbing the league.
