King Kev fancies a defender with class, technique, and that certain “ooomph” not seen at St James’ Park since Philip Albert skated around the pitch with gay abandon, so quite why the Keegster is going for West Ham’s Anton Ferdinand is beyond me…

Kevin Keegan is willing to offer Damien Duff in a bid to land Anton Ferdinand from West Ham.
Keegan is desperate to sign Ferdinand after selling Czech Republic international David Rozehnal, and has a ready-made replacement for Duff in new Argentine signing Jonas Gutierrez.(Daily Mail)
Is this move the hallmark of a genius manager, or crazy talk?
