Great player, one of Newcastle Utd’s best. Him and a young Peter Beardsley, simply great. NUFC is Kevin Keegan, end off.
Kevin’s pretty loud when he shanks one, he does like to win our Kev but loves a bush more ! He’ll know Las Brisas with Sean : A Great Footballer !
I am 47 and remember Kevin at 1982 Spain. I was 8 then.I see him now to a google photo. I understand that the years pass quickly. Believe me now I understand this at 47. Love you Kevin best player. Life is too short and all we grow up.
When he was manager, my daughter played for Newcastle girls. She was invited to Newcastle training ground. He was so nice. My daughter has a video doing headers with him and lots of photos. What a man, totally down to earth.
I used to watch him destroy us regularly. One of the best players I’ve ever seen. Loved him at Newcastle .... loved him everywhere except playing us ... Chelsea
I met Kevin and his wife Jean when he was manager of Man City at a City Res game played at Hyde United. I was working as a chief scout at the time it was in the hospitality lounge and they came over and sat with me. Jean said do you know its our anniversary today and he promised to take me for a meal? With that Kevin got up went over to a table and gave her a plate of sandwiches - priceless!
One of the truly great English players both for Liverpool and Hamburg. The only British footballer to be voted European Footballer of the year....
Liverpool and Hamburg. Also a great England captain. A real catalyst. "MADE THINGS HAPPEN"
I used to meet Kevin and Emlyn in the betting shop at the bottom of Lawrence Road almost every Friday. I used to get tickets off them never asked for money last ones I got were for the St Etienne game in the Kemlyn Road stand - Sir Kenny Dalglish, as it is now. Golden days
I saw Kevin Keegan play for Liverpool Reserves v New Brighton before he made his first team debut v Nottingham Forest. He scored from a header and my Dad was the referee. He argued with him over a throw in!
I used to spend most days at Melwood watching Liverpool train in the 70s spoke to Kevin on lots of occasions but one day he was hurrying out holding his bag etc and he dropped a roll of notes, I shouted him but he never heard and got on the bus then right behind me was Steve Heighway and I asked him to hand it to Kevin on the bus at the time I didnâ€™t think much about it but have wondered since did he get it!
While I was working in the Mars bar Benidorm Spain a long time ago the Liverpool team where there for a friendly match. The owner of the bar I worked in was from Liverpool so they used the bar and one night when I finished I went to a disco and asked for the bar worker price which covers all you can drink as well but the bloke on the door said "how can you prove you work there?". From behind me a voice shouted, "I use the bar and he does work there". As it was Kevin Keegan, I was allowed inðŸ˜
Kevin used to go into the Lonsdale pub in Intake Doncaster on a Sunday for a few pints. Many years before he went to play for Scunthorpe United. Donny Rovers did not want him - I was one of the people he used to drink with.
His first home game as manager he was a passenger with Terry McDermott and as they came into the ground at the Leazes entrance where the old club shop used to be whoever was driving bumped into my wife.
First saw him play for Liverpool Reserves in a friendly v New Brighton at the Tower Grounds New Brighton. My dad was refereeing that day. A couple of weeks later he made his first team debut v Nottingham Forest at Anfield. Was at that game too. Great player, though I do think he left Liverpool too early.

Wish you could still be the manager of Newcastle United
