KK Says: 'Toon Revival No Surprise'

KK Says: 'Toon Revival No Surprise'

Football is a lot about confidence, and this is certainly something that Newcastle have found plenty of in recent weeks, but this doesn't surprise Kevin Keegan at all. The fears of relegation have now been brushed aside with the Toon on a five-game unbeaten run.

Getting this confidence took a while, but Keegan was never in doubt that it would be the case and now he feels the Toon can go on to bigger and better things: 'It's difficult sometimes when you have a run like we had at the start - and that run had gone on before I came, that's why I was appointed,' Keegan said.

'The confidence was low, but the confidence now is where you would like it to be.

'I don't think anyone either inside the club or outside the area would question that we have got a quality squad.

'That quality is now showing itself, whereas before, it was probably just not able to get out because of confidence.

'That's a massive part of the game. You hear managers saying the same thing - 'We are playing well, but we are not winning games and it is just chipping away at their confidence'.

'You don't say that because it sounds good or it gives you a reason or an excuse for losing matches, you say it because having been in the game a long time both as a player and as a manager, and you know yourself confidence breeds wins.'

No matter what anyone might say you can't dispute Keegan's thoughts on confidence breeding yet more confidence, which in turn brings an upturn in results.
