Kevin Keegan is philosophical about equaling Newcastle’s worst ever points total of 43 points for the season.
Kevin Keegan upbeat and positive again – great!
Kevin talked to the Evening Chronicle today and weâ€™re pleased to see Kevin back to his positive best:
â€œI said we didnâ€™t want to go down as the worst ever, and weâ€™ve equaled it.â€ â€œWhat can I say? Itâ€™s disappointing, but at one time it didnâ€™t look like we would get that many.â€
â€œYouâ€™ve just got to be grateful for small mercies. Weâ€™ve had a transition in the manager. We havenâ€™t had a transition of players, as we havenâ€™t signed any yet.â€
â€œItâ€™s not a surprise. When things donâ€™t go smoothly at a football club, you donâ€™t pick up the points you should.â€ â€œWe can write whatever we want about this club this year.â€
â€œItâ€™s definitely going to go down as a disappointing season, but I would like to think the supporters can go off and have a little break now. It might have been a lot, lot better.â€
â€œWhen I took over and looked at the fixtures, we only had one game away against the teams around us.â€ â€œEvery game was against teams in the top half. We had to play the whole top four either home or away.â€
â€œI think the players have done marvelously to get together and sort it out. It was a challenge. The bigger the club, the bigger the scalp it is in this league.â€
â€œThereâ€™ll be players who will go home and reflect over the summer, and think they could have had better seasons and contributed a bit more.â€
â€œThereâ€™s players who think they should have been given more chances, and thereâ€™ll be players who know theyâ€™ve given everything, and just not had enough around them.â€
We have to say we think it’s just great that the Kevin Keegan we all know, is back after his stack attack after the Cheslea game.
A positive and energized Kevin Keegan is vital to the Newcastle United club right now, and we have every confidence that Kevin can work his magic once again at the club. He’s already done it twice before after all.
That’s even if he himself has his doubts sometimes, because of the enormity of the job in front of him.
But let’s just remember where things are right now – and just watch.
