It’s not surprising that Kevin Keegan will not consider a return to Newcastle United under the present ownership, but he is keeping tabs on the situation.
Richard Bevan, of the League Managers Association, who helped Kevin in his negotiations with Newcastle, before Kevin walked out on Friday 5th September, has apparently kept in contact with Keegan since then.
Kevin is apparently keeping tabs on what is going on at the club, and it looks like a number of people have contacted Kevin.
“Numerous people, including a group of Newcastle supporters, have contacted Kevin and myself saying, ‘Would he be interested in coming back?’”
“Kevin didn’t want to leave. He has a great passion for the club.” “But the structure has to be right.”
“He doesn’t want to go through that again. Kevin can’t make any decision until the club has been sold.”
We sure hope Kevin hadn’t left so abruptly, and in retrospect maybe he could have stayed tight, and put his case to the Newcastle fans.
Yes we know it’s water under the bridge but maybe there was a way to work it out with Ashley, that didn’t have such a massive impart on the club. If it’s true that players were brought in behind his back he had an excellent case to put to the fans and others.
From now on the club must take priority, and that has to be above any manager and any chairman, and any owner. Nobody is bigger than the Newcastle United club.
Oh well, it’s happened now and Irishman Joe Kinnear can be the hero to save us and get us back on the right track and winning games again – well at least until a new permanent manger is appointed, once the club is sold.
And Joe has come in like a steam engine and so determined to put Newcastle back to where they belong, and he’s been great at what he’s done so far. You can’t beat hard work and enthusiasm as the ingredients of success, and Joe has both of these in abundance, that’s for sure. Keep going Joe.
Comments very welcome, but please keep them decent and about football – thanks.
