Should Kevin Keegan, one day, be considered as Toon boss?

Postby NickKIELCEPoland » Fri Jan 11, 2013 9:17 pm

First of all, I definitely don't want Pardew sacked. I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would want that - he took us to 5th place in his, to date, only full season with us.

But I can't help wondering what it would be like, if one day, Mike Ashley and Kevin Keegan reconciled, and Keegan came back to manage the Toon.

I think Keegan shouldn't have resigned - I understand that all that happened was that a player was signed wihtout his say-so. At the same time, Keegan is one of the Toon's great heroes, and it's a shame that he's out in the cold, as it were. We are struggling at the moment, but we are in good financial shape, being run very professionally by Ashley.

So, one day, should Mike Ashley pick up the phone and dial Keegan's number?

If you mean Michelle Keegan, then no, he shouldn't dial her number as she would reject him immediately.

As for the poll, I've voted for I don't care, I just like voting in polls.

This seems the most pointless thread ever. He has an 8 year contract and isn't likely to be sacked. But hey, if they do bad, he seems like a decent enough bloke to walk away. Or some kind of deal.

You expect, with that team, that they'd be safe from relegation.

I made it clear that I was speaking of one day in the future. I definitely don't think Pardew should be sacked.

Kev Keegan should be back in top flight football, always drama and interest with 'Special K'. I'd like to see him back with the Magpies, great fun! He is actually a decent manager, despite the scornful attitude some fans have towards him. I honestly don't think he will ever go back into management, but you don't need to ask me how I voted...

Yes, he is a brilliant manager, and it is a shame that his talents haven't been allowed to develop enough. But his personality is at the heart of both his brilliance and his failings. It would be really great if Mike Ashley and he reconciled and he was invited back to St. James' Park as a special guest.

Even though it broke my heart when things didn't go well between him and Ashley, I still sometimes get a smaile on my face thinking of when he came back in 2008 - that moment was truly glorious for the Toon fans.

I fully agree with you :) Keegan is a special football person. He is by no means perfect, his achilles heal is that he thinks that the club he manages has an obligation to match the spending of the biggest spending clubs, but there is no doubt that he totally lifted Tyneside, and I will never forget what he did for the region.

I did indeed - and the popularity of that option shows that I understand the man in the street.

Keegan shouldn't even be considered boss in his own home.

At least he walks away rather than waiting for a hefty pay off.

He sued him for constructive dismissal, won and was awarded 2 million. The panel thought that signing one player without his permission amounted to constructive dismissal.
