'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Where did the 'wow` signing go Michael?

It seems when our esteemed owner is not making a total tool of himself live on Setanta, beclad in his super snug black and white top and necking pints of the Amber Nectar, he seems to be making outlandish claims about 'wow` signings. Funnily enough there seemed to be only one club with the 'wow` factor yesterday and it wasn`t based in NE1…

Ashley`s pledge to corporate sponsors has left him with a severe dose of Shepherditus, commonly known as foot in mouth syndrome. With our deadline day signings coming in the form of an unproven Spanish kid and a Uruguayan loanee I hope the bloke isn`t expecting fans to come flocking back for the Hull game in a wave of new found Geordie euphoria. Even the most optimistic fan can see we`re still horrendously exposed at left back and short of bodies all round.

What`s more embarrassing is the relegation of KK to a hollow face, a puppet on strings, of the new regime. It seems the Fat Controller and his cronies have complete control of who goes in and out, as seen by the Barton wheeling and dealing late last night and the Milner sale. My only surprise is that Owen is still here.

Can we honestly say two Argentinians, a Spaniard and a Uruguayan are typical Keegan signings? No sir. It seems the work of our two so-called world football experts Jeff Vetere and Tony Jiminez, with their extensive La Liga and Latin America contacts. KK has gone from five to two prospective signings in the matter of a week.

Ashley gave Keegan an alleged dressing down when he dared suggest fifth was the best we could hope for in the short to medium term. Given the spending and all round bonhomie of Villa and the new found wealth of Man City, top six seems a million miles away now. Lets hope the barrow boy takes that into consideration before making any more rash decisions.

The quitter quits yet again!

Usually, I take pleasure in your suffering but, this time, I genuinely feel for you. I don't think Mike Ashley has any idea how to run a club and he should put a suit on and stop acting like a halfwit. Keegan deserves much better than that. He probably had no say in the sale of Milner to Villa and where's the money for new signings? Ashley should sell up - you deserve better than this.

The board should resign. King Kev desearves more than this now i hear he's been sacked why? If they let him run the club through, like every other club lets there managers. We would have stars there at newcastle but o no yet again Ashley gives no cash and still wants to finish in the top four. He's taking the mikey out of Newcastle United. There is nobody else who can do a job like KING KEV. He nows the people of Newcastle and knows the club. This can't go on, SACK THE BOARD AND THEN BRING KING KEV BACK

I have to say, when he went to the Toon I thought it was hilarious though probably doomed. The ultimate fit of nostalgia. The way it's ending though is ridiculous and I feel sorry for Keegan. He's effectively been lied to and mugged off. This will make him even more of a hero with the fans, though. King Kev The Martyred Messiah, carrying his black and white cross up the hill.

KEEGAN HAS NOT BEEN SACKED... He QUIT. I am not a Keegan fan, i dodnt like the way he walked away from England, Man City, and even Newcastle... BUT when he came back to Newcastle, as King KEV, and had been out of football for a break, i was all for giving him a chance. I am not a NEWCASTLE Fan, but i have respect for them. But not now. Your owner Ashley is a total embarrasement to your club. He is the Owner, so act like an owner, or sell up and become a fan. Keegan and Newcastle fit hand in glove like Fergy and United, or Redknapp and Portsmouth. So why tie his hands behind his back, sell players he wants to keep, try and sell others he wants to keep, and bring in players he doesnt want. Because Dennis "I.M Hard" Wise has Ashleys ear, not Kevin Keegan. Ive watched him get very sad looking the past few weeks, and this day was looming, but for Newcastles Sake, i hope the fans stand by Keegan and boycott the next home game in protest. Get Ashley out before he ruins your club. The bloke is a nonsence.

A sad piece of news for football this. I really thought you could have done well this season. It seemed like you had finally got a bit of continuity. Then when Milner was sold behind Keegan's back it all started to collapse. I'm not a huge Keegan fan but I just think that any long-term manager would be a good one for Newcastle. The City takeover and this is just showing English football to be a star-studded farce. Good luck anyway, I feel for you on this one.

No matter how Keegan left, I believe he was forced out anyway, how can a Club be run from London and the Director of Football choose the players who come and go. no manager would put up with it Roy Keene has said as much in todays Express
