Success Always Next Season at Newcastle – Butt

Nicky Butt has had another good season at Newcastle , and he is playing particularly well under new boss Kevin Keegan.


Nicky Butt – success next season?

Nicky is always down to earth, but he also feels that Newcastle are now playing well, and already have some excellent players in the squad as he talked to the Journal this morning:

“I’d like to think there are exciting times ahead for this club next year but every year seems to be the same at this club,”

“We say next year, next year but we’ve got the right people in place now, the right manager and right coaching staff, and obviously we have got some good players.”

“We need to add to that and then we’ll be able to really look forward to it.”

Nicky’s right, and since it’s the end of the season we look forward to next season. That was so true under Glenn Roeder two years ago when we won 6 of our last 7 league games and beat Chelsea 1-0 at St. James’ Park with a late goal from Titus Bramble. We finished 7th that year and got into the UEFA Cup by winning the Inter-Toto Cup.

It was also true last season when we had a new manager Sam Allardyce in place, 9 new players Sam had brought in, and a new Billionaire owner Mike Ashley, in place.

But it may be different this time around, because the great Kevin Keegan is back, and if anybody can make this club successful in the next few seasons, it’s King Kevin.

The fans know that very well – and we think they’re right.

Roll on next season.
