Kevin Keegan still wants to ensure Newcastle finish this season in a position of strength.
Kevin Keegan – wants Newcastle to finish season strongly
Kevin wants to finish the season on a high so that everybody at Newcastle United just cannot wait for the close season to start, when we should have a few more good players in the ranks.
Kevin said today:
â€œWe want to go to Everton on the final day and finish the season on a high for the players to go away on holiday, for the staff because they need a boost and for the owner and mainly the fans,â€
â€œBut what has really come home to me since I came back into the league is that the Premier League is the most fantastic league in the world for lots of different reasons.â€
â€œNot because itâ€™s always the best football, not because itâ€™s always the best entertainment but itâ€™s the most competitive. Fulham can go to Man City and win.â€
â€œMan City can go to Old Trafford and win. We can go to Tottenham and win and then we can lose at home to one of the smaller clubs, and so can the rest.â€
Chelseaâ€™s visit next Monday has added a competitive game to the mix because Chelsea are in with a decent chance of winning the Premier League.
But the Blues know that Newcastle are an in-form team and will give them a good game on Monday at St. James’ Park. Newcastle will want to return to better form than they showed in the first half in London last Saturday, and you can bet there will be no lackadaisical start next Monday.
Kevin continued praising the Premier League:
â€œItâ€™s a great league, weâ€™ve privileged to be part of it, whether we watch it, play in it or whatever. Thatâ€™s the thing I like about this league â€“ thereâ€™s an integrity to it.”
â€œIf we were in Spain now weâ€™d be getting an offer of a bonus from Manchester United for beating Chelsea. Definitely. It happens and itâ€™s allowed as well. That can never happen here.”
“If we beat Chelsea itâ€™s because we deserve to and if they beat us, they deserve to. If Manchester United win the title theyâ€™ll have deserved to and the same for Chelsea.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think itâ€™s our cup final, itâ€™s their cup final and our chance to see how weâ€™ve progressed rather than a cup final. But itâ€™s a game Iâ€™d like to win.â€
It should be a great game and we can see just how good we can be at home against one of the best teams in the league. It’s a great opportunity for this team to repay the fans and actually win that game – that would be a great result for the fans, that’s for sure.
We think we can do it.
