Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan has talked today to the Evening Chronicle but is not yet assuming that his team is safe from relegation.
Kevin Keegan – doing his invaluable work on the training field
Kevin talked to the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œWeâ€™re still in a relegation fight, but weâ€™re looking up.â€
â€œWeâ€™ve got it within us to catch Spurs, and maybe West Ham. Weâ€™ve got to go to West Ham, and if we play as we did at Spurs in our last few games, we could pick up some good points.â€
â€œWeâ€™ve Reading, Sunderland and Chelsea to come to us, and on that form, against a top-quality side, you have to fancy us to beat anybody at the moment.â€
Newcastle will get a great reception at St. James Park against Reading on Saturday, and it will be very well deserved. Not only have the lads played well these last few games but all the fighting qualities of the great Newcastle sides of the past are all there to see.
But Kevin and the lads will be very keen to keep up their good form and take all 3 points because nothing less than a win will maintain the new levitation and hope which is on Tyneside.
A very good run to end a very poor and disappointing season will go a long way to getting the Newcastle fans ready for next season, when hopes will once again be sky high.
But maybe we’ll do very well again under Keegan’s magic, but our thoughts right now are only on the six remaining games and how the team plays in those games. 18 points are at stake and the way we played last Sunday we can pick up all 18 points, with just a little bit of Lady Luck on our side.
