Yes, we felt the need to dredge up this emotional, slightly unhinged, clip!
KEVIN KEEGAN could make a sensational return to Newcastle if a Dubai tycoon succeeds with a £100million bid for the troubled club.
And managing director Derek Llambias last night insisted the club could have new owners within the next WEEK.
The latest twist in the Toon saga emerged as Newcastle drew 0-0 with Leeds in front of just 16,000 fans at St James’ Park – and 5,000 of those were supporting the visitors.
It was a far cry from the days when the football-mad Geordies would turn up in their thousands just to welcome a new player.
Such was the ]gloomy air around the eerily-silent ground, club officials even had crowd cheers played through the Tannoy system when the players came out.
But an upbeat Llambias claimed to be dealing with several interested parties, including Sirous Mahjoob who wants to install Keegan – and NOT Alan Shearer – as manager. (The Sun)
Well I guess it was time for a bit of good news for the loyal Toon Army supporters but unfortunately this isn’t the first false dawn of the summer and whilst it’s all well and good that a takeover is within sight as this has happened umpteen times already.
I hope for the clubs sake that they do finally get rid of ‘Obese and Odious’ (Mike Ashley to his remaining friends) because until they do they are doomed to spiral ever downwards.
