Weâ€™ve noticed that quite a few Newcastle fans seem to already be doubting the wisdom of appointing Kevin Keegan as the manager of Newcastle United.
Malcolm MacDonald – Keegan very good in transfer market
We have no doubts that Kevin can and will turn this club around but heâ€™s not going to be able to work miracles. Kevin has already said he likes the squad he inherited but that they are very low on confidence, but thatâ€™s much easier to fix than being low on skill.
Malcolm Macdonald is backing Kevin Keegan and thinks that once he has secured safety this season he will bring in the players he needs that will turn us back into a good side.
This is what Malcolm told Setanta Sports today:
“I think one thing to cling to is that there may be a huge pot of money for Keegan to spend.” “Kevin is very, very good in the transfer market.â€
“That’s his forte, so once the end of the season arrives and Newcastle are still in the Premier League, I expect to see some Keegan magic at work.”
And Malcolm knows all about Kevin’s first spell at the club. If we can survive in the Premier league this season we would expect Kevin to go on a spending spree, backed by Mike Ashley, not unlike what Sven Eriksson did at Manchester City last summer.
We expect Kevin to bring in some very good players, who will be good in the Premier league – immediately. And of course we’ll also be seeing more top class youngsters coming to the club.
But we must be patient as fans – Rome wasn’t built in a day. Patience is a virtue – even if it is dammed hard sometimes – especially when we are losing. 😀
For the record – MacDonald scored 95 goals for the club from 1971 – 1976 and appeared in 187 games for the Magpies.
