One of the clubs Kevin has managed to success, Fulham, are the visitors tomorrow, in what is again another very important game for Newcastle, and not surprisingly Kevin wants a very good display and all 3 points.
Kevin Keegan – read my expression Oh no. I’ve told them a 100 times! 😀
Kevin is still looking for his very first victory since returning to the club, which is simply amazing. The Newcastle manager said today:
â€œI will tell the players only to win â€“ I donâ€™t even want to think about defeat, itâ€™s a game we want to win.” â€œThe mood has been excellent and there is plenty of people who care at this club.â€œThereâ€™s a lot of good things here.” â€œWe canâ€™t do anything about the games that have gone but we can do something about this one.”
â€œItâ€™s a big game, Steve Harper said Birmingham was one of the biggest games in recent history which is quite a statement but he wasnâ€™t far wrong.” â€œWe didnâ€™t lose and got a point now Fulham is a chance to build on that.” â€œWhen you start winning itâ€™s contagious, losing is the same.â€
â€œThe players stuck at it and did little things to stop us from going 2-0 behind on Monday.” â€œIn earlier games that hasnâ€™t been the case, once you come in at half-time 2-0 down itâ€™s a massive gap to turn around.”
â€œAt half-time we had a chance to regroup and have a chat.” â€œAnd in the second half the performance was as good an away performance you could hope to get.” â€œIf we do that at home weâ€™ve every chance of getting a result.â€
â€œFulham have taken four points from the last two games and went to Blackburn and took a deserved point.” â€œTheyâ€™ve beaten Everton at home and everybody knows how tough that is, you have to respect that.”
â€œThe reality is now that we are trying to win the mini league down at the bottom.” â€œItâ€™s not the way everybody wanted it at the start of the season but it is where we are.” â€œWe are focused on that and as far as Birmingham goes, it was a good start but we have to build on that.” â€œIf we cannot then it will be a waste of time.”
â€œI want another Blackburn type performance at home.” â€œAlthough we lost we played very well and we deserved to win.” â€œWeâ€™re a team that needs a victory and have done for a long while.” â€œI can see there is a determination from the players.”
There will be big celebrations, both at the end of the game, and on Saturday night, if we can finally get that first league win in over 3 months, and the very first one since Keegan came back to the club for a 3rd time.
We have a good feeling that if we can win on Saturday, the next win will not be far away. It’s just a feeling. 😀
