Kevin Keegan is so looking forward to the game this afternoon against Chelsea, and while he doesn’t say it outright, there’s nothing better he’d like today than for his team to beat the Blues on merit this afternoon.
Kevin Keegan – dreaming of a win against Chelsea today
Kevin Keegan said this morning:
“We are not thinking about our holidays and we are not thinking â€˜Letâ€™s just get this season over withâ€™ so then we can start thinking about next year.”
“We are thinking about how can we test ourselves in the best way possible against this team.â€
“But if we play to our best and they feel â€˜Wow, this is another big gameâ€™ after two big games against Liverpool and Manchester United, then who knows?”
“That is the fascination of the Premier League.”
It will be important for the Magpies to start strongly this afternoon, and not go down to an early goal as we did against West Ham last time out.
But Chelsea players could also be nervous, given the magnitude of the game, so the first 20 minutes will be very important.
Certainly, an early Newcastle goal would raise the roof on St. James’ Park and stir some souls in the City of Manchester, that’s for sure.
Comments very welcome.
