Llambias lambasts Keegan!

Derek opens his trap.....
A war of words looks to be breaking out between Newcastle United and Kevin Keegan as the club have hit back against remarks that Keegan made in a radio interview earlier on in the week.

The short version of events is that Keegan suggested that Alan Pardew will be lucky to see any of the money that Newcastle pocketed from the sale of Andy Carroll, but if you want to hear the long version you can do so by listening to my carefully borrowed recording of that particular radio interview by clicking here.

At the end of the day, it’s Keegan’s own personal opinion of the situation at Newcastle, and you could argue that he is better placed than anyone to pass comment on what could potentially happen in the summer as he has had to endure transfer proceedings under the current ownership. It may or may not be sour grapes, but as I said a moment ago, it’s still his opinion and he is entitled to it.

Not according to Managing Director, Derek Llambias though who has emerged from the rock that he usually resides under to pass comment on Keegan’s words. Llambias believes that Keegan is being a tad hypocritical with his remarks, as evidenced by these quotes that I picked up from The Express:

“How can Kevin Keegan talk about having any concern for this club’s finances when he took action against Newcastle United that could have finished us?” said Llambias. “He was claiming close to £26m from Newcastle when he took his dispute over his departure to a tribunal. In the end he was awarded the minimum amount – just £2m.”

Now not many people actually like Llambias, for whatever reason, and this is hardly going to win anyone around is it? The classy thing to do would have been to rise above and let the actions speak louder than words rather than incite a war of words with a chap who has actually been proved right at their expense before.

Yes, Keegan was wrong to claim for such a high amount, in my opinion of course, but it’s gone and it should all be water under the bridge now. Heaven knows how these quotes came about, but I bet a casino, 2am and lager had something to do with it. That’s what it sounds like to me anyway.

Time will tell us just who is right on this one. The club could really stick two fingers up at Keegan, prove him wrong and go and spend the cash on strengthening the squad. It’s the kind of childish thing that they would do after all…. Hopefully.

Or Keegan could be proved right again?

  6. Yes he can give his views, he is a ‘pundit’ after all. After he was in a court case with NUFC though his views on newcastle are now bias and invalid IMO an he should keep them to himself.

  7. djg i’ve told you before & i’ll tell you again – if it wasn’t for KK your da & you wouldn’t have anything to with newcastle or even footy in general.

    it was the KK years that got your pop’s attention/involvement in the toon & because of that you picked the baton up a couple of years ago & decided you would become a die-hard supporter – you’d do well remembering that & also the few friends you’ve made on here also wouldn’t exist if it wern’t for KK.

    so lay off him ya divvy.

  10. Come on people, has anyone here ever been involved in negotiations?

    You always claim a stupidly high amount and negotiate down to the real figure. If some people here think Keegan really wanted or expected £26m, then you really are stupid.
