Keegan – Great Goal Brought Us Back Into Game

Kevin told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today that he was quite pleased to get a draw on Saturday, after the way the team started the game.


Kevin Keegan – happy with draw

Kevin talked to the Evening Chronicle today:

“After 25 minutes, I think I would have just taken a 2-0 defeat and gone home because I thought we were going to be really turned over.” “It had shades of 5-0 or 6-0.” “I looked at the players and thought I could have changed any of them.”

“If I had taken anybody off at that stage, I don’t think they could have argued.” “The run continues, but you might ask how after the first 35-40 minutes.” “We managed to keep it going through a combination of things, not least that we’ve got a good spirit and a bit of a never-say-die attitude.”

“It took a great goal to get us back in it and suddenly we were 2-2, and we didn’t deserve to be 2-2 at half time.” “The players knew that, I knew that and every supporter in the stadium knew that.”

“At half-time I just told them the truth. We had to be better.” “I thought it was a day that if we ever started to play for 15-20 minutes, like we did at Spurs, we would have won it”

“But West Ham stood up. It was a very hot day, and at the end a draw was probably just about right, but how it ever got to be 2-2, I’ll never know.”

In the end it was a good result for us, and at least we were able to keep our unbeaten run going.

That run will be under severe pressure next Monday against Chelsea, but since it’s also the last game of a very disappointing season, we’re sure Kevin will remind his players that a final win would be great for Newcastle’s so loyal fans.

That’s the very least the fans deserve, after the season they’ve just gone through. 😀
