With fresh speculation surrounding Newcastle on the Kevin Keegan front and also whether a sale can be concluded soon to Barry Moat, it doesn’t make life easy for Chris Hughton and the players.
Kevin Keegan – decision expected today
But this week it has been getting intense with news, now all over the place, that Kevin Keegan may be awarded £25M in his dispute with the club, and that’s £25M the club doesn’t have right now.
But where that £25M came from in the first place we can only guess – it was like the administration story – it was made up – plain and simple. We’re not absolutely sure of that – just 99% sure.
The news should come out today on just how much the 3 man tribunal looking into the Keegan vs Newcastle United dispute, will award Kevin.
But the history of these tribunals support the employee – Kevin Keegan in the case – 85% of the time.
However some hopefully solid news from the Journal today, that the former Newcastle manager has no intention of financially crippling the club.
This is a story we reported on very early yesterday and it is the backdrop to what Chris Hughton and the Newcastle players have to ignore as they concentrate on beating Ipswich tomorrow, which is the thing that’s really important for the club and the fans.
And the Newcastle fans (and this blog) are only too aware that points and wins in the league are what’s really important this season, probably the only thing that’s important.
That’s why we weren’t too upset at being eliminated from the Carling Cup last Tuesday.
Wouldn’t it be great if we got a new owner in, and that owner talked to the fans regularly, and even laid out the plans and strategy to get Newcastle back to greatness again.
But there we go again – getting carried away with things.
We support Chris and all the players in getting 3 points tomorrow, in a Championship game that is being televised live around the world.
Howay The Lads!!
