Shay Given has admitted that Newcastle United are once again in turmoil after Kevin Keegan’s resignation last week.
Shay Given – concentrating on World Cup qualifiers
The Ireland goalkeeper said yesterday:
“There’s a lot gone on but I am over here concentrating on a World Cup qualifier.” “I don’t like to talk too much about all the stuff that’s gone on at the club.”“I know it’s happened, but there’s not much I can do out here. I don’t know what has gone on, really.”
Shay will be hoping the club can put another turbulent week in its history behind it to set about the business of re-establishing the club in the upper reaches of the Barclays Premier League.
But without Kevin Keegan it seems like this season could become another rebuilding season, with yet another manager coming in.
Certainly the fans in Newcastle seem solidly against Mike Ashley and his cronies, and want them out, since they have brought disaster and ridicule to the club, and seem to treat the fans with utter disdain.
“It’s not for me to say what should happen with the owner of the football club. We all want the club to move forward and hopefully, we will do that.”“There’s a bit of turmoil at the minute, obviously, but we’d like the get the club back on track and get it going in the right direction again.”
Ireland beat Georgia 2-1 yesterday, at a neutral venue in Mainz, Germany. because of the current unrest in Georgia, and the Georgia goal wasn’t scored until the second minute of injury time. So almost a clean sheet for the terrific Given, who has been in top form this season for Newcastle.
