Kevin Keegan has had 2 weeks to train the Newcastle players ready for the tough game coming up against the Red Devils on Saturday at St. Jamesâ€™ Park in a 5:15 PM kick off.
Kevin Keegan – can he work his magic on Newcastle?
Manchester United looked awesome against Arsenal last weekend, and took the Gunners apart. The result could also have been much ngreater than 4-0, once Arsenal were reduced to 10 men.
Kevin told Newcastle World TV:
“We have to try to get the balance right in the break and I believe it will be a good thing,”“By the time we come to Manchester Utd we would have had everyone together for the first time.â€
“Geremi is now back and I’ve now met all of the lads and have got to know everyone that little bit better during the break.â€ “The lads have been very focused and we’ve got through some good work.â€
“Because the deadline has passed, we have got what we have until the end of the season and we have to try to make the best of that.â€ “We need a win. That’s all we lack at the moment.â€
“The confidence will come flowing back and the football will get better and the players will start to trust each other that little bit more.”
It will be a sell-out again on Saturday and Newcastle fans will hope to see a vast improvement in Newcastle’s recent pathetic form, after Keegan and his staff have now had some time to work with the team.
But itâ€™s a tough game. A draw would be good and a win would be fantastic.
In fact a win would really ignite the fans â€“ maybe we can just do it.
