He's still there- the drama continues...

First of all, apologies to those of you who are reading from far away- bear with me. Soon I will be back to all things Lake District.
Excuse the continued references to football ( soccer). There is a big drama about our team manager and whether he is staying or going.
As Bill Shankly said:
'Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I'm very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.'
My own view ( and I suppose that is what blogs are all about eh?) is that Mike Ashley ( NUFC owner) looked out the window of his office at St James' park, and realised that the fans were about to dismantle it brick by brick, and decided to think again about his decision to sack...
He won't sack ( too expensive) and Kevin won't resign... so the state of play is lawyers making more money and stalemate.
And the fans do what they do best.... sigh and wait.

dh has been following this story, as he is a big soccer fan, mind you its Carlisle United that he is a fan of, I suppose someone has to support them :P

I loved Kevin Keegan when I was a teenager. Thanks for popping by my blog.

It's difficult for me to keep up with football goings on as I seldom see any over here, we're too tight to pay for cable TV. Well, I am married to a Yorkshireman, so what do you expect. :-)

But I think Keegan has proved himself a great player, and manager/coach in the past and will no doubt prove himself so again.
