“Love it!”: Keegan is back at Newcastle

IT’S KEEGAN! AGAIN!

Keegan on Superstars

Amazing! Keegan has been running his football circus in Glasgow in 2005; now he’s going back to run an even bigger one (thank Jamie for that fantastic comparison, there).

Oh, hang on…

Redknapp cancelled a meeting at Portsmouth yesterday AND Mandaric is singing his praises in an interview I’ve just seen. Perhaps I was getting over-excited.

Shearer DOES want the Newcastle job

One of the fine advantages of having an irregular sleep pattern is that I can scout the news channels at night for possible news stories and bring them to people before others. I’m destined for the night-shifts, I think…

Anyway, according to Sky News and their sources, Alan Shearer now DOES want the Newcastle job, providing he is offered it.

In my opinion, how Shearer, even with his beloved Newcastle, could contemplate breaking his managerial virginity with the footballing equivalent of the managerial whore where the unwanted is tossed aside once the minimal amount of pleasure / usefulness is extracted or no longer wanted, scares me.

Or rather, will he attract the whore?

Will Shearer be another seduced (or vice versa)? I think so. The Week in Wagers post will be up in due course (I hope…), but on Betfair, he’s 8.8 back (8/1). If I could afford it, I’d do so right away. Interestingly, however, Harry Redknapp is a nailed on certainty according to BF – he’s at 1.36 back (4/11).
