Keegan met with the new Newcastle recruitment team yesterday and seemed to be happy at the outcome.
Kevin Keegan – good meeting with the new recruitment team
The four of them reviewed the Youth Structure at the club and Kevin also again denied being surprised by the news of the appointments, contrary to reports earlier in the week. Weâ€™ll see if any of the journalists choose to listen to that statement, since it does mean the Newcastle club knows what they are doing â€“ not good news for the gossip journalists.
Keegan told Sky Sports today:
“It was a very good meeting, as I told you before, although it shocked a lot of people the announcement; I knew what was coming,” “I was fully informed and completely in favor of it. At the meeting we had on Thursday we just talked about everything.â€
“The three guys who came in, Tony Jimenez, Jeff [Vetere] and Dennis Wise have got to learn about this club as well and they went over to the academy to look at that.â€
“We talked about young players coming in and that will be the main thing that’s already started to some degree but it’s something that needed to be put in place at this football club.”
“So nobody from outside and certainly the fans, should look at it as anything but a good thing.”
We think these four, along with our young chairman Chris Mort have the opportunity to make Newcastle great again, and let’s not let the media get us down about Newcastleâ€™s future.
If we donâ€™t make it big again, it will not be because of lack of funds, ambition, or not having really good people at the club, running the day to day operations.
Not to mention having the best fans of any club around, real fans that is, who follow the club through thick and thin. Not those who only support teams who are top or near the top of the league.Â Â 😀
