Im a bit shocked but nothing really surprises me in football anymore.
Their club has turned into a laughing stock over the last 10 years.
I actually feel sorry for Keegan. he was trying to do a good job.
Ashley and that little runt Wise are to blame. This could be the start of their demise.

Not quit, sacked according to the Guardian

This in turn prompted a furious row in which Keegan, once again, expressed his frustration at Dennis Wise's control of the recruitment policy.

Newcastle's executive director, Wise is in charge of transfers but failed to deliver Keegan the specialist left-back he had been demanding all summer, let alone the "four top quality" signings he had hoped would arrive by midnight on Monday. Newcastle's only transfer activity on deadline day was the signing of Spanish striker Xisco and the loan signing of midfielder Ignacio Gonzalez.

Moreover Keegan, who returned to manage the club for a second time in January, was uneasy at both the decision to sell James Milner to Aston Villa, just days after he had claimed the England Under-21 winger would be going nowhere, and the club's delay over negotiating a new contract with Michael Owen.

Sam Allardyce's successor, who was appointed in the job on January 16, was due to watch Newcastle reserves play Sunderland on Monday night but, when he did not turn up, it was assumed he was either licking his wounds in the wake of the afternoon's row or had become involved in a last-minute piece of transfer business. By then though it seems Keegan sensed the axe was about to fall.
Hahahahahaha..... what a bunch of sad losers.
Mike Ashley said after Fat Sam's sacking that he blamed himself for not doing things his way right from the start.

Well his way of doing things are pathetic. I'm not sure how he made his billions, but he's pretty useless when it comes to running a football club.

Of all people, he enthrusts the recruitment of players to Denis Wise ......... what a joke.

I'd love it if he quit, love it!
Lmfao.

I figured he quit, because once he starts giving interviews and staring at the floor during them, you know he's trouble.

Did anyone else catch Mike Ashley in the stands? Dude slammed a pint in like 4 seconds. Funniest part was, he was in the no-alcohol section of the Emirates. He said it was non-alcoholic beer, little did he know, that they don't have that at the Emirates. :D

He hasn't been sacked at all.

How confusing can you get. :confused:

It took them a long time to release a statement, but they did and he hasn't been sacked. Although we haven't heard from "King Kev" yet.

What a circus of a club :rolleyes: :p

Magpies deny Keegan sacking
Magpies move to clear up speculation



Newcastle have announced that they have not sacked Kevin Keegan and they want him to remain as manager.

Keegan's future has been the subject of widespread speculation after reports emerged on Tuesday that Keegan had left the club.

The rumours about Keegan's future saw fans stage angry protests outside St James' Park with supporters calling for the head of owner Mike Ashley and the club's board.

However, the club have now revealed that they have not dispensed with Keegan's services and that the 57-year-old remains part of their plans.

Meetings

The club statement on their official website read: "Newcastle United can confirm that meetings between members of the Board and manager Kevin Keegan were held both yesterday and today.

"Kevin has raised a number of issues and those have been discussed with him.

"The club wants to keep progressing with its long-term strategy and would like to stress that Kevin is extremely important, both now and in the future.

"Newcastle United values the effort and commitment shown by Kevin since his return to St. James' Park and wants him to continue to play an instrumental role as manager of the club.

"For the avoidance of doubt the club has not sacked Kevin Keegan as manager."

However, Keegan's future remains shrouded in doubt with the former England boss remaining silent on his position.

I live up in the North East and i no what effect this could have if he has gone. There will be a uproar. I still think he has been sacked and they are agreeing compensation now. If thats true i would love to see Ashley sit in the stands again...

Newcastle say they haven't sacked him. The LMA say he hasn't resigned.

So what this boils down to is Keegan pulled a sickie. :rolleyes:

My wife is not a footy fan but knows a lot about the clubs, players etc from watching my games on tv. Her first point when the media was speculating on Kevin "Luv it" Keegan leaving Noocessel was:

"Why does he always throw his dummy in the dirt, like a spoilt baby"?

the owner of newcastle is an utter idiot ,what chance has any manager got with him , keegans trying to improve a poor team and ashley is trying to sell players behind the managers back . he is in with the supporters in his king kev shirt getting drunk ,can you picture fergie working for this lunatic i think not.
newcastle will never be champions there is too much hype in that region they simply put too much pressure on themselves ,but they have produced great footballing sides twice in keegans era's once has a player and once has a manager,and it would be greatly entertaining to all football fans if newcastle flourished again but ashley must go and keegan must stay to stand a chance.
