Kevin will no doubt be in meetings today, being brought up to speed on what the situation is with our transfers and also the contracts of 22 year-old Steven Taylor and captain Michael Owen.
Â Kevin Keegan – status meetings today
We find it interesting that Michael Owen said he had started negotiations on a new contract last week, and we reported earlier today that Mike Ashley will personally step in to sort out Steven Taylorâ€™s contract.
We find the timing interesting, because Kevin has been asking for months for the club to get these two signed up, and they knew he was returning from holiday last Friday. 😀
At least they can now tell Kevin they have made some progress, but it seems the club are dragging their feet on these contracts, maybe because they need to clear our more fringe players first.
As we mentioned earlier today, we would half expect Smith, Duff and Barton to be on their way, before the end of the transfer window.
We think Kevin will want to keep Joey, and maybe a face to face meeting between the two could get some things sorted out, because Joey’s attitude, while in jail, suggest he doesn’t understand the gravity of the situation he has put himself in.
But we think the only thing Kevin will be thinking about is how does he rehabilitate Joey, both on and off the field, because Kevin’s heart is made of pure gold.
Today should be an interesting day at the club.
