Nobody seems to know whether Kevin Keegan is staying or going, so I am not even going to attempt to unravel that one at the moment. For now we will focus on the attempts of a pair of Newcastle fans to convince King Kev to stay at St James’ Park through the medium of what appears to be a curry-stained sheet. Surely it is only a matter of time before Clinton Cards stock them: “Say it from the heart with a curry-stained sheet.”

Magpies and Keegan part company
It is a sad state of affairs. What a sham Newcastle United is at the moment. Did I say at the moment? I meant since they last parted company with King Kev. Mike Ashley should get his fat head out of his pint and take a reality check. Keegan parted company with one of his brightest assets last week when James Milner left for Aston Villa, and come transfer deadline day the board – the same board who were angry when he said the Magpies would struggle to break into the top four – backed him with less than £6 million on what is effectively a punt on a relatively unknown Spanish striker.
Chug, chug, chug
To be fair, Newcastle’s performance was enough to drive anyone to drink. The Newcastle chairman is now facing possible police action and a football banning order for breaking the rules about drinking alcohol within view of the playing surface. In his defence, a spokesman for Ashley claimed he was “offered a drink which he thought was non-alcoholic so he took it in good faith”. That reminds of the time we were offered a cigarette behind the bike shed at school and took it in good faith believing that it was one of those joke ones… Likely story, Mike.
