Has Keegan Resigned At Newcastle?


There are growing rumors that crisis talks were held this morning and that Kevin Keegan is reported to have walked out on Newcastle United.

Kevin Keegan – has he resigned?
We have to stress that this is NOT confirmed and it’s a natural; rumor this morning, becasue Kevin must have felt disappointed that only two new players were brought in yesterday, when we lost one of our best players last Friday, in James Milner.

Kevin may also feel he has let the fans down, because he said judge us at the end of the transfer window, and things are not as good as most fans would have liked.

To us Kevin Keegan is Newcastle United right now, so we hope this is not true.

If it is – the club will probably make a short statement on their official site, but that will leave us in terrible shape.

There is nothing confirmed, and we hope it’s just another made up rumour.

Comments welcome.

    We signed 4 players behind his back (Gonzalez, Coloccini, Gutierrez, and Xisco) and sold one he told the board not to sell (Milner).

    I said it at Christmas, that KK’s support of Barton would end up forcing him out the door because Ashley wants Barton out. Barton got Fat Sam the sack and he’ll get KK kicked out too. If not today then in the foreesable future.

    if this is true then we have to get ashley out before he ruins this club.

    i hope it is not true, but ever since we sold milner i have thought this was inevitable

    this just gets better and better, when will our club be run properly, without rumors fuled by poor leadership and communication as well as the undermining of managers and to think people yesterday were saying how well they thought the new regime has done, what a joke. I said we would know where we stand with the new regime by 12 last night and now we do and it leaves me deeply uninspired

    It just makes me wonder what the hell Denis Wise ansd all his cronies have been doing all summer. If Keegan was in charge of recruitment I think we would be alot more satisfied with our transfer window activities as he loves our club with a passion that he instills in any potential signings. Stay in London Denis and let the main man get on with what he’s good at and you haven’t got a clue about…………Kevin Keegan IS Newcastle United

    I think if Keegan has gone, we have to complain and make ourselves heard, we need to make Ashley sell up, and then the New owner get our King back…. He was promised 100’s or millions, and we ended up spending under 10m net, it sickens me…… really sickens me, please to God, dont let Kev go, make Ashley sell…. PLEASE!!!

    James, that’s some canny reliable info right there. Or maybe not, you didn’t include guthrie behind his back why? he’s english so Keegan must have wanted him. That gutierrez and coloccini were though, because most people had never heard of them.

    Get a grip man, I’m a big fan opinion not random comments stating facts you can have no way of knowing their validity. Unless you read the papers of course then you must know for sure.

    I’m not saying these are rosy times, far from it. but facts are the very thing we know nothing about, and that is part of the problem.

    Answer.

    Ashley should look for a more suitable purchaser. I think he has went in with his eyes closed when he bought the club, not realising the financial needs to make a club both popular with the fans and successful.

    I hope Kevin Keegan hasnt walked and if Dennis Wise does get installed, i think there should be a no attendance gate at SJP in protest.

    However as it is pure speculation at the moment…

    I posted on here around a month ago that there was problems between KK and MA and that it would blow up. I was shouted down as if I was some sort of heretic that was Blaspheming against the mighty KK. I was told that people like me werent real fans.
    I was actually told that if I didnt have anything positive to say I shouldnt say it.
    What I pointed out was that there was clear friction between KK , MA and Dennis wise etc…
    and that it would lead to KK walking out. It may not happen this time but people are blind if they cant see the clear problems now! And that isnt being negative its just the fact!

    This was in the Daly Mail, hardly a high source of concrete fact.

    IF Keegan has walked out i will personally be more annoyed with keegan, as that is not the way to deal with conflict, but personally dont think there is any substance to it.

    As for signing the four players behind keegans back james that is complete tripe.

    Also if it is true calls keegans integrity into question as if he didnt agree with the milner shouldnt have said it was his decision.

    personally though i think it is utter B*****X, course there’s a press conference this afternoon. there is 2 new players to introduce to the press!!

    I wouldn’t blame Keegan if he walked out, the club is counting the pennies and showing very little ambition, while clubs around us take leaps forward. I’m sick of men in suits ruining the club and what is stands for. I’m pissed off and on my way to deliver a brick through a Sports Soccer window.

    Wise to be announced new manager? That would be the final straw….

    Anyway, im affraid the signs are really there, that KK is no longer our manager.

    tto put things in perspective we have rooted around the bargain basement while citeh placed bids in excess of 300 million euros yesterday, i know we can’t compete with this, but this years transfer window to me looks like a board who will be happy with mid table pish so they don’t have to risk buying to compete at the other end, which is a disgrace, lets milk the thick geordie cash cow eh they’ll support no matter what and heres a thought if KK does leave which is highly possible who takes over “wise ?”

    Total paper lies .. everyone knows keegan wanted 3-5 players .. he got 2 .. so theres going to be friction .. if there heads to roll Wise has to go .. it seems like KK and MA get on .. so get rid of the loose cannon, or the expendible midget that messes up contracts..
