Kevin Keegan leaves Newcastle United
Magpies and Keegan part company
It is a sad state of affairs. What a sham Newcastle United is at the moment. Did I say at the moment? I meant since they last parted company with King Kev. Mike Ashley should get his fat head out of his pint and take a reality check. Keegan parted company with one of his brightest assets last week when James Milner left for Aston Villa, and come transfer deadline day the board – the same board who were angry when he said the Magpies would struggle to break into the top four – backed him with less than £6 million on what is effectively a punt on a relatively unknown Spanish striker.
No wonder Keegan was fed up. Newcastle fans must now be wishing the Abu Dhabi investment group had finalised a deal at St James’ Park instead of moving on to Manchester City. Can anyone other than Alan Shearer follow King Kev?
