I think it was when he returned as Man City manager when knobs,and i mean a canny few knobs,starting chanting `Keegan Keegan what's the score......' when we were a couple/few goals up.

Knobs of the highest order they were and still are. Winning the Fairs Cup and the Keegan era are the best times i've ever had supporting NUFC .

Keith Gillespie has revealed how Sir Alex Ferguson tricked Kevin Keegan when selling him to Newcastle.

The former Northern Ireland winger joined the Magpies in 1995 as part of the £7m deal which saw Andy Cole move the other way.

But not before Ferguson had intervened a little to ensure his man earned himself a bumper pay day.

"After an FA Cup game, we thrashed out terms at midnight in a hotel in Sheffield. Back then I was a £250-a-week player," he told the Sunday Telegraph.

"I remember Alex sitting there with a pen and paper, adding up figures and scribbling away. He told a bit of a white lie to Kevin Keegan: 'Keith’s on £600 a week at the moment so he’ll be looking for an increase on that.'

"He didn’t tell me this would happen so I sat there with a poker face, giving nothing away. Newcastle were happy to double my wage and an hour later I shook hands on a deal worth £1,200 a week."
