Kevin Keegan has admitted after the game this afternoon at West Ham that a draw was probably a fair result.
Kevin Keegan – fair result on today’s performance
Newcastle went two goals down after just over 20 minutes but battled back to be all square at half time. Oba Martins on 43 minutes scored his 10th goal of the season before Geremi headed the equalizer right on half-time.
Afterwards, Kevin gave his ideas on the game:
“It was a strange game.” “I was disappointed with the way we started the game and after 30 minutes I was thinking ‘What can I do?’.”
“Everyone was below par but I decided to leave it and hope that the experienced players could among the kids.” “It was a great goal by Oba Martins and then Geremi has got us level before half-time.”
“To be honest, before that I would have settled for a 2-0 defeat!” “But I said to them at half-time ‘We have not even started playing, yet we are level. Can you go and win it?’.”
“We had a couple of chances but so did they so the draw was probably the fair result.”
We’ll certainly need to be a lot sharper at the start of our next game against Chelsea a week on Monday at St. James’ Park.
It’s become a key game for Chelsea, who are now level with the Red Devils, after they beat them 2-1 earlier today at Stamford Bridge, with two goals from German captain Michael Ballack.
Maybe Kevin can do Ferguson a favor in that game. 😀
