Newcastle United manager Kevin Keegan has said that three signings are likely before the start of the season next Sunday.
Kevin Keegan – 3 new players before next Sunday
But of course Kevin can hardly reveal who those players are, but this will come as good news to Newcastle fans.
Newcastle gave a sparkling display of attacking football yesterday against Valencia, especially in the second half, when two good goals in the final 12 minutes, as they continually upped the pace against a good Spanish side, gave them an excellent and deserved victory.
The way they won was what was so impressive, and it’s little wonder lots of fans and football people around the world love this man Kevin Keegan.Â He plays the game the way is was meant to be played, by attacking the opposition and it was an excellent game to watch, with Valencia obviously a very good side, who were about a week behind Newcastle in their preparations.
Fabricio Coloccini was at the game yesterday, and we have to assume he is one of the players Kevin will bring in, as Newcastle have now agreed a fee with his club, Deportivo La Coruna.
But Keegan is remaining cagey about who the players are, but he hinted that Coloccini will be joining in what promises to be a hectic week of transfer activity at the club:
“I can’t tell you anything at the moment,” “He was here, that’s for sure. I like his hair, it’s like mine in the seventies, but I can’t tell you any more than that.”
“I’d like to think that once [the Coloccini deal] is completed then two more players will arrive, and then we’ll see what happens,”
“I think there’ll be a lot of comings and goings late on as clubs try to re-balance and somebody will come available who will be of interest.”
“I think we’ll be in there pitching just like everybody else.”
That’s good to hear because if we can bring 3 new players in that will be 6 new players in and 6 having left this summer.
The squad will still be small – but full of quality and much better than last season.
Certainly if yesterday’s performance was anything to go by, we’re in for some treats this season at St. James’ Park.
