It seems that Freddy Shepherd is feeling his way back to Newcastle. And he says that Ashley should reinstall Kevin Keegan.
Shepherd really brings a lot of baggage and I don't think this is a good move. He held the fans and the players in contempt while at Newcastle. And he never once took responsibility for getting it wrong.
Some memorable Freddy highlights:
“Newcastle fans are mugs for paying £30.00 for shirts that cost us £5.00 to make.”
“Alan Shearer, he’s boring isn’t he? We call him Mary Poppins.” - Freddy Shepherd and partner in crime Douglas Hall insult Newcastle’s then new £15m man
“Geordie women are dogs” - Freddy Shepherd and partner in crime Douglas Hall on why they prefer the company of the opposite sex in a Marbella brothel to their ‘own’ womenfolk back home.
But here is the killer:
“But there is no one to blame for us not getting other players in before the transfer deadline. It’s the window to blame. It is absolutely ridiculous and really a restriction of trade and I would like to see somebody challenging it.” - Freddy blames this summer’s transfer window debacle on the transfer window.
