'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kevin Keegan wants to rejoin Newcastle United

In a sensational turn of events, Newcastle United are facing a daunting task in what to make of former manager Kevin Keegan. The 52-year-old walked-out on United in August due to disagreements over the club's transfer policy, but wants to return to St. James' Park due to the dire straits the club finds itself in.

The Daily Star is reporting exclusively that Magpies owner Mike Ashley will snub Keegan's proposed return and instead pay the compensation package King Kev's representatives had chalked out -- a world record 9million pay-off.

Keegan has told friends he is alarmed at his former club`s current situation, and would love to return if the reigns of transfers is handed back to him, with Dennis Wise either leaving, or taking a more subtle approach in his professional capacity as club Executive Director (Football).

Managing Director Derek Llambias has already revealed this week that him and Ashley had not contemplated the barrage of criticism and dismay at the club's decision to part-company with Keegan.

"The reaction was so big it was naive on our part - we didn`t realise how big it would be,' said Llambias.

"Kevin is the messiah. He is a great guy. I promise you, Kevin was where we wanted to go," he added.

The fans would love King Kev back at the club, considering Joe Kinnear's present state, but can Ashley and Co. swallow their pride, admit that they were wrong, and reinstate The Messiah?

It is unlikely, but many Geordies will feel that Keegan coming back could be the final piece in the St. James' Park puzzle, as the club builds for the future.

Would you want Keegan at the helm on Tyneside? Please vote to let us, and the rest of the Geordie nation know.

at the moment i'd take any manager over JFK and Hughton - the team looked drained on the field, cant score and can defend. we can't win at home, can't win away... That's relegation form !
