Poor old Kevin Keegan. It’s becoming painfully obvious to anyone who knows anything about football that he’s not making the impact everyone hoped he would at Newcastle. A draw at fellow relegation candidates Birmingham is now seen by most in black and white as a good result!
And just to make matters worse, just as they enter a relegation dogfight, Newcastle find out their best player – ‘keeper Shay Given – is out for six weeks. It really is a dogfight, by the way. Be under no illusions, Newcy could be in the brown stuff if Sunderland, Bolton, Reading and Birmingham win their next game – and Newcastle were to lose theirs.
King Kev hailed Michael Owen as world-class for saving Newcastle face last night. But the truth is, even if he is back to his best, the team is not servicing him with enough quality balls – and he’s all on his own up there.
Could this be the season when the Toon go doon?
