Keegan Can’t Wait To Get Back Next season

Kevin Keegan is still the pragmatist, and doesn’t believe Newcastle are out of relegation trouble yet, but he wants a strong finish to the season, so players and staff can’t wait to get back for next season.


Kevin Keegan – still in relegation fight

Kevin is not getting carried away too much, and knows that tomorrow’s game with Reading will not be easy although we think it is a winnable game for the lads.

Kevin talked today:

“We’re by no means home and hosed,” “But the way things worked out last weekend has given us some breathing space.”

“We have enjoyed the week but I don’t want the players thinking ‘That’s it’ now. I want them to kick on and finish the season on a high, so everyone thinks ‘I can’t wait to get back next season to see what happens’. “

“That’s not just the players, but the staff and supporters as well.”

Reading manager Steve Coppell believes his side have nothing to fear from Keegan’s rejuvenated team, and as usual he will have his side well prepared:

Steve said:

“I believe the previous game’s form doesn’t carry through. From our point of view we’re on a good run so there’s nothing to be frightened of.”

We’re looking forward to a good attacking game from the lads, and we think with any luck we should be 3 points better off after the game – we certainly hope so.

    Yep- there’s goals in this one.
    Haven’t they conceded abot fifty goals to Spurs this season?
    Following the last away result- the fans will be going crackers and Doyle will need his ears plugs for this game!

    Home win- now the pressure has eased a little.
    Bolton are going down!

    i think you have to apply to go into the intertoto cup by fair play earlier than now… shame though its suprising, imagine if alan smith hadnt been playing that would nearly be quartered`

    True, but Smith has his fair share of yellow and he’s got our lone red.
