“Honestly, I will love it if we beat them. Love it!”
~ Kevin Keegan, May 1996
Kevin Keegan responds to comments from Sir Alex Ferguson with one of the most memorable tirades in soccer history. Newcastle held a 12 point lead in January 1996 but ended up second to Manchester United in the end. Keegan’s tirade came just before the last game of the season when Manchester United beat Middlesborough 3-0 and Newcastle drew 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur.
