Actually this Sky Sports quote of Kevin Keegan hoping (against hope) to lure Thierry Henry to St. James’s Park has been pulled out of context. The Newcastle United manager did indeed say this during a two-hour programme on Radio Newcastle:
I would like to fetch Thierry Henry back to England. He’s the best player I’ve seen in the Premiership When you’re pitch-side, what I’ve seen him do to good players has been incredible. Sometimes you can take advantage of a situation and get what I call lucky.
Actually the question was something like this: if you were in a fantasy world and could have any one player you fancied, who would it be?
Hopefully now you would understand the situation more clearly.
