Kevin Keegan is rightly putting his priority at the moment on getting enough points to ensure the club stays in the Premier league next season.
Kevin Keegan – more concerned about survival than new players right now
Kevin thinks 40 points will be enough to ensure we are OK, so we still need 12 points in our last 11 league games of the season. Since we have taken only 3 points from our last 10 league games, we still have some work to do to ensure that safety.
We think Kevin will be given enough money in the summer once he has identified the players he wants to bring to the club in the summer:
Kevin told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today when asked if he would have funds to bring in new players:
â€œWe havenâ€™t really discussed it but I was promised money when I came so itâ€™ll be there.â€ â€œI donâ€™t think I need worry about that.â€â€œBut the first thing I need to do is get to 40 points and make sure weâ€™re in the Premier League. Thatâ€™s still there to be done.â€
â€œThen Iâ€™ve got to go and get the three, four or five players that are hopefully going to turn this place around.â€ â€œIâ€™ve got a small squad. There are so few options within this squad.â€
â€œRome wasnâ€™t built in a day. We didnâ€™t bring them in from day one last time.â€
â€œWe fetched Brian Kilcline in first and they donâ€™t talk too much about it, though they liked him.â€
â€œScott Sellars came, then Darren Peacock. They werenâ€™t too excited about those two either. Shearer came in at the end.â€
We can start thinking of bringing players in once we can get a few wins on the board. It will be a long 11 weeks come Saturday since we beat Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage, which was our last league win. Kevin and his coaching staff are right to concentrate on our league position.
It would be absolutely catastrophic for the club, if we were relegated this season, and stranger things have happened and we are certainly not safe yet.
