KK Remaining Realistic With His Toon Aims
Having seen his side lose to Chelsea on Monday Kevin Keegan was honest and open in his admission that there is little, or nothing that he can do to transform the Toon into a side capable of challenging the likes of Chelsea for the Premier League Title: 'I was thinking, 'what have I got to do next year to get near them' and the truth is there's nothing I can do at all,' Keegan told BBC Sport. 'Maybe the owner thinks we can bridge that gap - but we can't.
'I haven't got enough money and I wouldn't be able to get the players anyway, so I will soldier on with what I've got and maybe add one or two, maybe three depending what's available.
'I was looking around thinking, 'who can I bring on' and I'm seeing Shevchenko and Lampard coming on and Joe Cole thinking about coming on.'
Chris Mort and Mike Ashley have both said repeatedly that Keegan will be offered a large amount of money to improve the Toon for next season, but Keegan is honest in his thinking that if people are expecting them to become Title contenders they are wrong, aren't they?
