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

The Keegan debacle

Just when the St James soap opera couldn`t get any more dramatic the club issued the following statement over the future of KK. With the bookies already toting up the lists of next manager, the chalkboard will have to come down for at least a couple more hours. The statement read:

"Newcastle United can confirm that meetings between members of the Board and manager Kevin Keegan were held both yesterday and today. Kevin has raised a number of issues and those have been discussed with him.

The Club wants to keep progressing with its long-term strategy and would like to stress that Kevin is extremely important, both now and in the future. Newcastle United values the effort and commitment shown by Kevin since his return to St. James' Park and wants him to continue to play an instrumental role as manager of the Club.

For the avoidance of doubt the Club has not sacked Kevin Keegan as manager."

Jesus wept...

"For the avoidance of doubt the Club has not sacked Kevin Keegan as manager" Does this mean he quit?
JohnDoe
but isn't he now saying different?

Does anyone know what is going on? Is he staying or is he going?

I'd like to know that as well Dean1. Also, and I ask this knowing full well that as a liverpool fan my club are not exactly doing well off the pitch, but when are the Newcastle owners going to stop throwing a spanner in the works as soon as things look like they're improving. It happened with Freddy Shepherd and now with Mike Ashley. You guys deserve it!!

I can't see how fans deserve it - they can't prevent a million pound takeover... can they?
FreidelNo.1
He nearly quit twice first time around so it is par for the course for KK I think
Red Wimp
