Did KK sell us short?

Did KK sell us short?

Just under a month ago when Kevin Keegan resigned as our manager for the second time, I felt that he had no other choice than to do what he did if he felt he was being undermined by the regime that had been appointed by owner Mike Ashley.

However as I have watched our promising start to the season be smashed to pieces over the last month with our rudderless team lurching from one wretched performance to the next I can`t help but feel that Keegan not only abandoned ship but also abandoned the fans that he claims to have cared about so much.

A month ago when it was becoming increasingly clear that King Kev was no longer running the show when it came to which players came in and went out of the club, the club needed a leader more than ever, and so did the fans.

We needed Keegan to stick it out this time for the sake of the fans and the team. Without him the club would lack direction and there would be uproar amongst the fans as was proved in the Hull City game which has led to Ashley putting the club up for sale. Now the club is in turmoil and are despite the promising second half performance against Blackburn look to be a team sliding towards relegation.

The famous song line 'When the going gets tough, the tough get going` clearly doesn`t apply to Kevin Keegan. For the former England manager when the going gets he walks away. He did the same with England and he has shown that he is a quitter with his actions in the last month.

When Newcastle United needed Kevin Keegan most he left and never looked back. This should act as a warning to any potential new owners of Newcastle United. Do not re-appoint Kevin Keegan.

The club needs to look to the future under a new manager and not look back to the past and hope to relive the glory days.

How can you blame KK? I dont think there are many people who could carry on after what your Board tried to pull on Transfer Deadline Week. LMFAO Though as it couldn't of happened to a better team
