Kevin’s Back

KK was back at the Toon last night. His presence motivated Newcastle to a 4 – 1 FA Cup win against Stoke. KK didn’t get involved with the team before the game, instead he sat with the club’s owner and chairman in the stands. The supporters were well prepared, many holding up signs with messages like “Heaven Keegan”, Messiah Returns” written on them. Now Footy Boots rarely leans on the side of caution, apart from when McClaren managed England of course, but we are concerned that the Geordies are being hyped up a little too much.

KK “I mean I haven’t watched a game of football, live, since my last game at Manchester City and I can’t even remember what game that was.” That was nearly 3 years ago. “What could drag you back into football KK?” “Nothing.” That was KK in October! watch the video

Owen In Bother

We hope Michael Owen made a mint out of his autobiography, because it could see his time at Newcastle cut short, a little like the little man himself actually. Owen, like many other high profile footballers, sold his soul for a big cheque in exchange for an autobiography, which might just come back to haunt him. Here is the best line he wrote about his new manager KK. “I really started to resent him – not as a man, but as a manager.” Best start licking some behind Michael. link
