Kevin Keegan has certainly been getting the very best out of the squad of players he inherited from Big Sam Allardyce.
Kevin Keegan – I may be dreaming about summer transfers
But that after all is what a good coach does, and thereâ€™s no doubt that Kevin Keegan is a very good coach indeed.
While he has been praising his squad over the last few games, and rightly so because of their great performances, he is overlooking the shortcomings in his squad.
That is something he is very anxious to address in the summer as he talked this morning to the Newcastle Journal:
â€œWhat youâ€™ve got to have in your squad is the ability to change things at all times,â€ â€œI donâ€™t think at this club weâ€™ve got a balanced squad at all. Iâ€™ve got one left-back (Jose Enrique). Iâ€™ve got one holding midfield player (Nicky Butt).â€
â€œThereâ€™s places where itâ€™s out of balance, but thereâ€™s places where itâ€™s very exciting.â€
â€œI think the summer could be very exciting. Iâ€™ve got an idea who Iâ€™d like to bring here, but I might be dreaming.â€
That last comment tells you Kevinâ€™s thinking of some big names to bring into the squad, doesnâ€™t it? We’ve been linked with some big name players including Thierry Henry and Deco.
But we see that Manchester City have approached Ronaldinho and have talked to his brother yesterday, who is acting as his agent. If Kevin would like him in the Newcastle squad that should alert the club to get in contact with Barcelona immediately, to see if we have any chance of getting the super-star to Tyneside.
But hey, Ronaldinho, maybe we are just dreaming.
