We have ran a poll over the last 24 hours to try to gauge the feelings of Newcastle supporters (or more accurately those supporters who read this blog), over the current Tribunal between Kevin Keegan and Newcastle United.
Kevin Keegan – his action not supported by Geordie fans
With 416 votes cast over the last day or so, 72% do not support Keegan in the actions he has taken.
The question asked was Do You Support Kevin Keegan In His Action Against Newcastle United?
72% have said NO
28% have said YES.
Kevin is suing Newcastle for 3 years in salary and £1M in court costs, for constructive dismisal last September.
We understand Kevin was getting around £3M/year at the club, so that’s around £10M in total he’s claiming.
A special Premier League Tribunal is meeting this week to hear the facts from both sides, and then presumably decide on an amount of compensation that would be suitable for Keegan – if any.
We understand both sides have agreed to accept the judgement of the Tribunal.
The Newcastle United club is counter-suing Kevin for £2M for breach of contract, since they contend he walked out on the club.
The poll will be open until the end of the game at Blackpool tonight.
