Yowza! Big news. HRH King Kevin Keegan is returning to Newcastle United to manage the club for the second time. The 56-year-old has been confirmed as Sam Allardyce’s replacement at St James’ Park. Keegan said on Monday: “I’m not ruling myself out or in. It’s a club I love, everyone knows that.”
King Kev oversaw the Magpies most successful era in recent history between 1992 and 1997. He won over the Toon Army with his exciting, but often self-destructive brand of all-out attack football. This has come as a genuine shock. I didn’t think Mike Ashley would be keen to bring Keegan back, and I thought KK would be reluctant to put his legendary status among Newcastle fans on the line.
What do you think of the appointment, Pies fans? Tino Asprilla’s only 38 – I’m sure he could be tempted back for a couple of seasons…
