Keegan struggling for excuses after Villa thrashing

Kevin Keegan is a straight man, not only sexually but also when it comes to accepting his match analysis. At least that’s the image that you get when you read particular quote from him as he anatomises his side’s collapse to Aston Villa in the Premiership on Saturday even after taking the lead.

Keegan says:

We got the lead today and still couldn’t go on and win so you sort of run out of excuses in that department. When you look at the second half the positives are forgotten because of the negatives and we are very fragile at the moment. We have got enough to be a Premier League club next season but you have still got to get to that 40-point mark no matter what type of club you are.

So avoiding relegation is still your first priority, isn’t it? Now that is some honesty.
