Price of Keegan departure – £2m and relegation

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

### Kevin - Insistent on suing Mike Ashley

It’s a sad day to see a former Newcastle footballer and manager, win a court case against his ‘beloved’ club. However, you have to look at Mike Ashley’s side of the story. Perhaps he deserved it, maybe there’s no question about it, but surely you think that Keegan wouldn’t go to such lengths just to be able to say he was right. Today Mike Ashley was ordered to pay £2m in compensation to Kevin and perhaps even more, dependent on future developments. The good news is though, this chapter is now closed and a new one can open.

Ny headline may be a little harsh but I believe it’s the truth. Kevin Keegan resignation from Newcastle United was the day they started on that slippery slope which in the end, led to relegation.

On top of it, Keegan has got £2m cash, as well as the hefty lump sum which he received while in his tenure at the Toon Army. Not a bad pay in just a while in charge.

However there is some good news on the horizon, and that is the takeover. All the boats have left the dock and Barry Moat’s can move right in. (Please)

Comments welcome 🙂

If you read some of the comments from the case the club admits to the tribunal it repeatedly & deliberatley misled the press the public and the fans of NUFC ( just watch the crowd reaction on saturday ) the fact that Wise wanted Keegan to sign a guy by watching youtube and as a favour to a couple of agents at the end of the day Keegan was made to look the bad guy by Ashley but i think now that things are out in the open the fans will now understand why Keegan had no option but to leave and myself i'd have him back tomorrow with a new ownership

That's understandable Steve. And also, the fact we were told blatant lies is unacceptable. A new ownership should be on the cards finally though :)
