In the best display of the season, which has been one of the worst seasons for Newcastle fans in recent memory (and that’s saying something), Newcastle United produced a scintillating performance of attacking football at White Hart Lane this afternoon.
Kevin Keegan – his magic is starting to show through
The game was a joy to watch – at least for Newcastle fans – and hopefully shows what’s in store for the Newcastle faithful next season. It’s not often a team that’s fighting relegation produces a 4-1 win at White Hart Lane, and win the game on merit too.
But that’s exactly what happened today and this augers so well for how Newcastle can perform in the league next season under Newcastle maestro Kevin Keegan and his back-room staff.
Kevin and Newcastle have taken some criticism since January, but they are now starting to answer the critics and but for better luck at Birmingham this would have been 3 league wins in a row.
But we are also too sage to get carried a way with just one win (or is that two?) but it’s more the way the team won today that is so exciting to Newcastle’s fans.
Owner Mike Ashley and Chairman Chris Mort took a calculated risk in January when they dismissed Sam Allardyce, more for the manner in which the team played than anything else. They didn’t want to have another rebuilding season next season so elected to make the change in January.
Kevin came in and the team had to totally adjust to a new way of playing under Keegan, and it took a good number of games to get our first league win under Kevin, which was just last week against Fulham.
But now a second win in succession in London today has set the Geordie fans on fire with what is possible in Keegan’s second coming at the club.
The players deserve full credit today for a gutsy and inspired display of attacking football – well done lads – you did us proud!
We’re sure it’s also a huge relief for Newcastle Owner Mike Ashley and Chairman Chris Mort, who’ve had to endure a very very tough first season on the playing side at Newcastle. But perhaps things will be on the up from now on.Â Â 😀
Roll on the summer, and since we will be safe in the PL we can now look forward to which players can make us into a better team for next season.
