Shearer and Kevin Keegan, Another Past and Presents

February 12 14:26 2008 Print This Article

King Kev is a good and nice man but he has found the job is difficult, more difficult for anyone regardless of history or experience or in Shearer’s case inexperience.

I think Keegan is looking like yesterday’s man at present and he hasn’t had a chance to breath, we are relegation bad. He came in and it’s nice to have a popular person in charge, a person who wouldn’t harm our club for personal gain but!

Jesus, his job at the moment is mighty difficult. He’s got to build an entire team and squad in a club that is less than stable with a reputation for stupidity and abject failure. Furthmore, given any circumstance it collapses into high comedy tragedy.

Newcastle's the job is a huge one, can he do it? He’ll try his level best I’m positive. What he has on his side is the love of the majority of NUFC supporters. However, if he makes stupid errors of judgement or drops major bollocks then love will turn to scorn – just the same as if anybody else were to feck up day to day.

I watch with interest the day to day of KK’s time. The only other person who’ll get the same level of initial good will from the majority is Shearer (Am I right here?). I hope to hell Shearer is studying NUFC’s progress, or demise, from this unwelcome position we have today with keenness and clarity of thought. He may find himself facing day to day scorn.

How will KK and AS deal with unpopularity? If we find they just don’t need it – KK has previous, and AS has a £50 million stash – then what?
