Newcastle United are a club basking in hype and expectation at the moment with the appointment of old Toon favorite Kevin Keegan in charge. And the players too are joining in the swelling wave of optimism.
Setanta Sports has quoted Newcastle winger Damien Duff as saying that he believes under Keegan, the Geordies would improve and entertain their fans once again. The republic of Ireland international says:
Especially at Newcastle I think the wingers then were a big focal point in the team, along with the strikers. So I can’t wait to start working properly with him. Obviously, he has only been in a week or so and we haven’t had time to work on the training ground with him because of the games, but I’m just really looking forward to the future there with him. It’s really good, really positive. The gaffer has been brilliant, even though we haven’t won a game if you don’t count Stoke [in The FA Cup] since he came here. But the place is buzzing. He’s a God up there, the fans love him.
There’s a lot of hope and expectation in the air but will it all be a matter of much ado about nothing in the end?
