Now this is a bold statement. Goal.com quotes Newcastle United number 2 Arthur Cox as saying that the Geordies can finish in the top six in the English Premier League this season.
Cox told BBC Radio Five Live:
We want Newcastle in the top six, and pushing the top four, in the next two seasons. Kevin will be looking for a Uefa Cup place this season, if at all possible.
Cox worked with Kevin Keegan when the latter was in charge at St. James’ Park in the mid-1990s and this time too the 68-year old is optimistic about the turnaround of the fortunes of the club. Yet finishing in the top six this season would be too much for them. Maybe next season…..
