Kevin Keegan in for Tony Adams?

It is 'said' that 'reports' in a Newcastle paper - The Evening Chronicle - are saying that Kevin Keegan is sounding out Tony Adams as a possible no.2 to him at St James' Park.

Keegan is still on the look out for his right hand man, with it said an appointment will be made soon and his former captain during his spell with England as manager is 'said' to be a favoured target alongside another who worked under him as a player with England and Man City Stuart Pearce - he also served on the coaching staff with him at City.

I cannot see Adams being tempted away to Newcastle to be honest, he wants to be his own manager sooner rather than later so I would not expect him to leave his job here until he does so for a job as an outright manager.

Keegan is unreal. Can't get any good playing personnel to join that bunch of ***** up north so he has to pick off playing staff from other teams. Sounds like a manager who is out of his depth and needs real help.

I thought that was what Dennis Wise was going up to be? And why on earth would Adams want to join that bunch of losers for anyway when he can be involved in European football with the Blue Army. The TOON comes from Cartoon I presume? which like them, take a lot of time to make, fun to watch, but you can't take to seriously

I don't even think KK knows what Deennis the Menace is going to be doing in barcode world. Certainly hope TA doesn't go there or anywhere.

I agree with what you said in your article, Rug, TA has agreed to stay as Arry's number 2 for this season, before going on to manage his own club. But I'm sick of the cartoons trying to plunder Pompey - we should do it back and sign Owen.

Mark my words, it will all end in tears at Newcastle, sooner than later.

Tracy Owen is crooked. He's good for about 5 games, two of which he needs to find his form again, and then he's injured again.

i think you are probably right 007, they cant keep 'approaching' people liek they are, wise has sold out to go to the barcodes, he's taken a 'director of football role', whats that all about? keegan was 'the returning messier' recnetly, but give it a while and they'll be on his back too... adams wont go there even if approached, what would be the benefit?

Frankly, I don't see why the outcome of Keegan returning to Newcastle will be any different in result from his stint at Man Citeh. It's just a different league from the early 90's, period, and only the exceptional teams can find enough room to produce beautiful to watch attacking football. They don't have the dough, mystique or locale to draw the kind of personnel they need to reproduce the style they showed when he was last there, so the Barcodes are deluding themselves (which they've done pretty much throughout their existence). I still wish him well though, even if I'm not a big toon fan, he was one of my favourite players as a kid.

Why don't Newcastle leave our club alone?

only reason TA would go up there would be to get a different perspective as a manger. Harry has given him the clearest signs that he thinks pompey will do better than newcastle - why would tony think otherwhys?

Surely Tony is too old to play in the back four at Newcastle? I know that Rozental and Cacapa are rubbish but Tony must be too old even to play for them, however he is still better than Titus, if he goes to the barcodes Harry demand Owen, Martins, Viduka and 7 million or is that a bit excessive?

Owens consider it done.... Russ 'the greatest team in the world' already have Wise as Director of Football they want our Tone (and probably his driver as well) as well apparently .. as Keegans, no2 if you please ...

yep wise is going as a 'director of football' which to me seems a farce - so he is still on the look-out for a no.2...

Keegan got a boss, told he was not part of recruitment after a cash request, knocked back by Johnathon Woodgate and then flogged by Arsenal all in about 24 hours. What does he need a number 2 for anyway, all he has to do is coach the first team, job done by lunchtime then once or twice a week put 15 names on a bit of paper and hang it on the wall.

if harry wouldnt go, why would his no.2? if it wasnt for 'arry tony adams would still be unemployed and undiscovered as a football coach. stick with pompey, tony, we are on the up, and you've got enough money to last the rest of ur lifetime, PUP. and surely its a step back for wise? okay theres more moeny, but this is freezing him out of management for x amount of years. hes a great manager, hes taken milwall to fa cup final and europe. hes got swindon promoted, he was going to get leeds promoted even with 15 points deduction. he would have been a good replacement for harry.
