Roy Keane – Keegan A God To Newcastle Fans


Roy Keane, the Sunderland Manager, has been impressed his entire career with Kevin Keegan’s enthusiasm and love of the game of football.

Roy Keane – Sunderland Manager big fan of Keegan

Roy hasn’t said too much about the ridiculous situation that currently exists at Newcastle, but yesterday he did share some of his views, specifically on Kevin Keegan:

“I took Kevin Keegan for what he was and that’s a good bloke who was enthusiastic,”  “The bottom line is that no matter what you say about people up round here, the clubs, Boro, Newcastle us, the people love their football, I tell you.”

“That is something to be admired and Kevin Keegan loved his football. The people in this region are passionate about their football and sometimes that leads to frenzied protests or whatever,  but it is definitely something that makes it special in this area.”

“He’s a god anyway to Newcastle fans because of his playing career and style of football he brought and rightly so. I know they didn’t win the Premier League but with a bit of luck they probably would have.”

“Kevin Keegan loved his football and has got to be admired. There is a massive doubt over whether he will come back and. I think the game is a lesser game without him, definitely.”

“I cannot second guess what was going on. There has been enough chat about what might have been going on. Up in the North East, it’s always rife with something,”

“If it is not Newcastle, it will be us next. I had it last year when I had certain players out, people ringing me saying they had been in a club the night before. There’s always something being written about or talked about.”

Roy isn’t far off with those views, but the big question for Newcastle fans this morning is whether a Keegan – Ashley settlement is now on the cards, or was last night’s meeting and failure to reach an agreement, the actual parting of the ways.

Comments welcome.

    Not many people impress this man, take note Ashley. It’s only you and your cohorts that don’t respect him.

    Got to say, Roy Keane does talk sense alot of the time. I mean, if he wanted to he could of came out n tuk the pish out of us hardcore with him now being a mackem n rubbed it in big style, but thats not his style. got respect for him even if he is a mackem!

    For those interested, great piece of Keegan memorabilia I have for sale on ebay, ending tonight. Here is the link:

    Jesus Christ man Ed!!!! I had a few beers last night and have just woke up with a sore head. Then I put my computer on and I get a picture of Gypsey Keane on my computer! In future give us a day or 2 warning before you do something like that!

    Hurts me to say this but he does talk sense most of the time. He would be a decent bloke if he could learnt to punch properly!

    Ashley Sell, get out of our club. Your failed PR stunt stinks the same as the people you put in place to run the club.

    There’s a lot of things I’ve disliked Roy Keane for in the past and also a lot of things I’ve liked him for too, and I do respect the guy. This opinion is entirely welcome.
    I hope to god that these talks between Keegan and Ashley haven’t ended. It could be the first thing Ashley can do in a long list of things to make any head way what so ever in trying to appease me, if he is determined to hold on to the club that is.

    Love him or hate him, the little hard nut from Cork has always told it how he see’s it. I like him as a manager, he never looks for excuses and always shows respect. The Mackems have done well there.
    They’re looking a much better run club than us these days, thats for sure.

    Maybe Roy Keane will be the same as Keegan when he return to manage ManU after Sir Alex retire.

    The only way I can see Keegan coming back is if Ashley gets rid of the 3 wise monkeys, and IMO I cant see Ashley doing that. The chances of Ashley selling the club is getting worse day by day. IMO i can see the club going downhill

    Keane isn’t a Mackem, he manages the Mackems. I’ve never liked him as a person but I would have loved to have had him playing for us.

    How about this for a long shot bet, KK being at Sid James Park today in the box with Ashley, I would rule nothing out in our real life fantasy game land.

    Ganiyu-do you have to come here? And for that matter, do you watch football?
    as much as i hate to say it, and he’s still a mackem, but roy keane as a manager seems to be one of the smartest talking, most level headed people in football these days. Like others have already said, he seems to know alot more than our board, which is just ridiculous.

    I actually can’t help to liking Roy Keane since he becomes a manager. He is such a smart guy. He didn’t relly say anything but he told you everything.

    well you certainly dont sound like you do ganiyu. i mean, if you wanna say something constructive then fair enough, if not just dont bother.
    all this nonsense about martins bench goal 10-1 or whatever is a bit stupid really isnt it.

    Ashley should be a hero.
    Bought the club when it was on its last legs
    Paid off all the debt with his own personal fortune
    Got rid of the boring manager at the time
    Brought back Kevin Keegan
    Eight months later Keegan turns his back on the toon yet again
    Ashley tries to stop him leaving
    A week later Ashley holds talks to solve the problem.

    Seriously, is your heart and head in the right place? One bloke risks millions at the club. One bloke walks out again without a care in the world simply because Ashley would not give him his blank chequebook. Come on guys, seriously, back your club. A week before the KK hissy fit all was well. IF Ashley sold today he would have been a success at the club without doubt. Time to trust the investor not the quitter. Move on.

    Ganiyu, as you are a Nigerian (I believe), is it possible you can put Mr Ashley in contact with someone with Billions of pounds who needs a way to get it out of the country. That should do the trick for us.
