Beardsley Gives Backing!

The problem (if you can call it that) with Pedro is simple ... the guy has not a bad word to say about ANYBODY.
He backed Souness when the pressure was on, saying it would be stupid to sack him; then was delighted Roeder was given his chance.

Then of course he was delighted for Big Sam when he got the job; said Mike Ashley would be a fool to sack him; but then again ... Keegan is the best man for the job.

Beardsley: "He is the best man for the job, I don't think there's any doubt about that.

"Alan Shearer was in the frame but experience obviously tells in this case and Kevin has seen and done it before.

"He will bring an excitement level. In an ideal world we'd like to win trophies as well but the style of football is more important and his style is the best in my opinion.

"I hope it is third time lucky in terms of getting trophies.

"He got promoted as a player with us and then as a manager, and if he could win a trophy third time wound that would be magnificent.

"There are cups to go for and hopefully 18 months from now we'll be challenging for Europe. I think that's realistic.

"If anybody can get us winning it will be him. It is not an easy start against Bolton but if our players perform like they did last night I'm sure they'll win.

"The players rose to the occasion and hopefully they'll keep doing that."
