Let me start by saying that I admire Kevin Keegan because he likes his football teams to play decent football. He gets them to play attacking attractive stuff and he is a great guy.
I like the Geordie public, they are great people and are starved of success in a football sense. This is not a direct pop at them.
I wonder who does Kevin Keegan think he is? He embarrassed himself at the end of yesterdays match by shouting and pointing his finger at Nasri and then having a go at Gallas.
I know that Mr Keegan is an emotional guy. That was proved in his infamous interview. But I think he over-reacted and made himself look stupid with his rants in the aftermath of the game.
Why did he even put Joey Barton on? The little prick sat there with arrogant smirk on his ugly chops all game and to even involve him was asking for trouble.
There is no doubt in my mind that Barton tried going through Nasri in that challenge. It was a lunge and could have been dangerous.
Keegan has taken a big risk on Barton and don't be surprised if Barton fucks up again. I know Kevin is trying to save Barton's career but I don't see why he has bothered. It isn't worth the trouble.
Nasri was rightly booked for the tripping of Barton but who's tackle was the more dangerous? A lunge or a trip?
I'm sorry Mr Keegan, I realise you are trying to defend your player but you can't defend the indefensible. I think that you are out of order for your attack on Nasri.
Keep it Goonerish.............
