Alan Shearer believes Kevin Keegan is on his way to bringing the good times back to Newcastle and hopes he will sign many good players in the summer.
Alan Shearer – has full confidence in Keegan at Newcastle
Alan talked to the official Newcastle United site today:
“I’m sure Kevin knows who he wants as we speak,” “I certainly hope they go out and spend a lot of money on bringing a lot of new players in. It could be exciting times again.â€
“He’s said his top signing will be to get Michael Owen to sign a new contract but I think you can expect a few big ones, I don’t think you should be surprised if that’s the case.”
Alan Shearer is convinced that Kevin is once again starting to weave his magic at Newcastle, as he continued:
“I’m not sure a lot of people doubted him within Newcastle,” “Maybe a lot of people doubted him outside but although he hasn’t proved them wrong he’s going that way now, and he’ll get it right, I’m sure of it.â€
“It makes me laugh really. If you looked at the situation closely enough you would understand why he was having such a tough time.â€ “But with the system they’re playing and the chances they’re creating its no surprise to see that they’re scoring goals and enjoying themselves.â€
“Kevin was always going to be under the microscope. But his first five or six games were tough fixtures.â€ “He had taken over a team where confidence was rock-bottom. In fact, they didn’t have any. He has also had to change the system completely in terms of the way they play.â€
“Taking all that into account it was no surprise that they didn’t win their first few games. But now it is no surprise that they’ve picked up a couple of wins and pulled away.â€ “In a way it’s a shame the season is ending because Newcastle are having their best run of the season.”
We have 3 matches left and we must try to get all 9 points to round off what has been a disastrous season for the club. We also don’t know if Alan will ever join Kevin as a coach at Newcastle. That seems to have died a death since Kevin turned the club around a month or so back.
