King Kev II

Kev - the Return
Kev - the Return

I can’t link to any news articles as none have been published yet… but King Kev is back in the Toon!

I honestly don’t know how I feel about this. The football we played under him all those years ago was certainly the best in living memory, and he’s the last manager (aside from Bobby) in many years who didn’t leave under a cloud. There’s no doubting that pretty much every Magpie loves the guy.

Yet the Premiership has moved on. Back then, we were a rarity in having a manager like him coupled with a rich, spend-happy chairman. Now that’s almost par for the course. Plus it’ll take him at least till the start of next season to gather us up a squad of his own to play that type of football – unless he can find 15-16 Bosmans.

I look forward to seeing what his contract conditions are, and the term he’s signed up for. Not that those kind of things count for **** these days. Do I sound less than excited? I guess it’s just the way things have gone over recent years – I’m not prepared to build myself up for another fall.

Fingers crossed for now. And at least he’s a welcome signing. We know the guy, we like him and that at the very least will get the Geordie crowd behind us again.

The best of luck to King Kev, always liked the guy, loved his passion for football and hope that he has learnt from past experiences and that yes, Premier League football is different from when he was last involved.

My Toon colleague has buggered off early to celebrate in the pub!


I’m narked as I can’t watch any matches on TV for the foreseeable. The few that are watchable over here all fall during my work hours 🙁


How sad am I that, hearing it on the news my first thought was to come see your reaction!

I know a certain Ex who is likely exstatic – in our house during the 90’s, KK was god. I also know he will want ‘Jesus’ – aka Peter Beardsley involved…….


I’m like ‘woman’ above…I logged on here as soon as I heard to see your reaction! Sign of sadness….LOL 😉


Woman – that “certain Ex” of yours named the damned *cat* Keegan. And it didn’t even have a perm…

What’s sad is that I had something posted on here before the BBC, Sky,… You can tell I’m busy.


That “certain Ex” wanted to get another, black cat at the time, but I refused to stand on the doorstep and shout, “Andy Cole, Andy Cole, Andy Andy Cole,” everytime I wanted it to come in for dinner!


A “certain Ex” of mine once snogged Andy Cole in a nightclub. Before he excused himself to snort a line of Columbian marching powder, at which point she legged it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
