Kevin Keegan agreed today that this season will not live very long in the memories of Newcastle United Fans.
Newcastle fans – hopes building for next season
Kevin talked after the great win against Reading this afternoon:
“It would be nice if we can finish the season by continuing to play our football like we can, and send the people here away for their holidays and their breaks thinking: `Wow – next season could be very good for Newcastle United.'”
“This will still be a poor season for Newcastle United – it won’t be remembered with pleasure by the fans as a classic season, but we can plant the seeds for next season.”
“We are always looking to next season, but the main focus is still to finish as high in the Premier League as we can now.”
If Newcastle do continue with their good form through the end of this season it will be difficult to contain the expectancy that will build with Newcastle fans during the summer.
Four good new players and say another4-5 top teenagers and two or three players leaving, will set us up with an excellent squad for next season.
We’ll have a chance to be the surprise team next season, but we will still have to attract four or five excellent players in the summer transfer window.
