Name that Toon
As someone from Newcastle United remarked on the BBC earlier today, the appointment of Kevin Keegan as the Magpies' next manager will be greeted with euphoria on Tyneside and a certain degree of puzzlement elsewhere. A triumph of adrenalin over calculation, but who knows - it might work. Just imagine, a devil-take-the-hindmost approach thwarting the posterially retentive ProZone Premier League technocrats. Football feasts of "stranger things" happening. One of which will be the appearance of Blue Square Conference South side Havant & Waterlooville rolling up at Anfield to face the might of Liverpool in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup. The non-league side, two divisions short of the Football League, have just turned over Swansea City (League One leaders) 4-2. The third goal came from Tom Jordan, son of Scotland hero Joe, glancing the ball past Dorus De Vries from Brett Poate's cross from the right. Congratulations to them. If only some of the excitement had rubbed off on BBC1's live FA Cup game, Manchester City against West Ham, which was ground out by Sven's men 1-0. Snoresville.
