'Geordie messiah' to be unveiled as new United manager

That is how highly regarded Kevin Keegan is among Newcastle United fans. Tyneside has a new manager, and he hopes to bring the club back from all of their recent problems. One thing is for sure: you won’t get boring football from a Keegan team.

The news was dramatic, the 56 year old former Liverpool icon managed Newcastle from 1992 to 1997. Didier Deschamps was strongly linked with the post but the surprise announcement will be welcome at St. James Park. Keegan managed Newcastle to promotion in 1993 and almost won the league in ’96.

Keegan’s last foray into management came with Manchester City in 2005, before that he was England manager and also had a stint at Fulham. Since Keegan left Newcastle 6 managers have taken up the post, all have failed and it’s been 4 decades since Newcastle has won anything.
