If indeed it is true that Kevin Keegan has resigned as manager tonight of Newcastle United, we will be seeing Newcastle captain Michael Owen leave the club, in the January transfer window.
Michael Owen – what is going on?
But since Michael’s contract is up next summer, we’ll not be able to get much at all for him, maybe perhaps £5M if we can get a couple of clubs bidding against each other,.
But we also wonder if the Newcastle Board has even thought through all of this, because it looks like Kevin resigned because he was being forced to accept players into the club he didn’t want.
It seems like the battle between Wise and Keegan as to who had the say for who came in and left, has been lost by the manager, and it’s seems to us amazing to ask a manager to accept players he doesn’t want.
How can he then be responsible for the playing side, if he cannot pick his own players?
This is all a little unbelievable to us right now, but we are anxiously waiting for some clarification from the club, but as yet nothing is on the official web-site.
