It’s being fully reported today that Kevin Keegan will meet Newcastle United Owner Mike Ashley this week, and it’s looks like it’s a Wednesday meeting.
Kevin Keegan – meeting very good for everybody involved
The news is that Kevin, Mike and Dennis Wise will sit down on Wednesday to discuss a variety of topics, but one of the most important is the transfer situation, which I’m sure is on the agenda.
Also, the various contracts that need closing such as Michale Owen’s and Steve Harper;s will also come up for discussion.
Let u say right from the start this is a good thing that these three are sitting down and with possibly Derek Llambias on his way, these are the three premier people who will be guiding the club forward in the future.
Kevin likes to know what’s going on, (nothing wrong there) and it seems like he’s more involved with things now on what both Mike and Dennis are doing, and that can only be good from everybody’s viewpoint.
Prime among them will be Wise’s efforts to provide the manager with the three more players he wants to sign during the final days of the transfer window, as well as developments on Michael Owen’s contract.
Keegan’s hand will have been strengthened by two solid displays from his new team, and excellent performances from new boys, Guthrie, Coloccini and Gutierrez.
We had around 5,000 empty seats at St James’ Park, and that was a surprise, but hey it’s nothing that wins and a few new good players will not fix, so let’s not over-react to this.
Keegan talked about the missing fans:
“I don’t know the answer to that.”
“All I know is my job is to put out a team that can win games and hopefully entertain.”
We don’t know if we’ll find out much about the meeting on Wednesday, either before or after – but we’re just very happy the meeting is taking place.
Because meetings promote good communication, and that is always good in any organization – we know that for a fact.
