As we had expected, Newcastle United Chairman has responded to the news that Kevin Keegan has two games to produce results or he will be moved upstairs.
Chris Mort – denies Keegan has 2 games to turn Newcastle around
That piece of news originated in the Daily Mail and you can work out how they made up the story.
Our next two games are against teams beneath us in the league so assume we lose both of those games or pick up say a single point. What then?
And they quickly get to removing Kevin.
But that would be disastrous for the club and one management change in a season is enough, and as it is turning out â€“ too much. But Chris also denied many times that Big Sam’s job was at risk, but that didn’t stop the club from firing Sam in January. In retrospect that now looks unfair to the big man.
But if results donâ€™t improve Chris and Mike will have to decide if the disaster scenario happens, and we are indeed relegated to the Championship, will they retain Kevin Keegan as manager. That’s the big question looming if we keep losing games.
We hope the answer is yes because we think Keegan will have a massive clear-out in the summer and put a team together that will get us straight back up. Before the season is out weâ€™ll again have 50,000 home gates.
Heâ€™s done that a few times in his career. Newcastle the first time when having saved us from relegation to the old Division 3, we were promoted the next season. And to prove that was no fluke he did the same thing with Manchester City. He was also on his way to moving Fulham up the leagues when he took the England job in 1999.
We hope we don’t go down, but if we do and keep Kevin, things will not be as bad as they look, but the money Newcastle will lose will be huge. There’s no doubt at all about that, and of course the Newcastle fans will have been let down yet again.
