Will He Luv It This Time?

Will He Luv It This Time?

These last few days have been brilliant. I mean, Arsenal dropped two points. At home. Against Birmingham City. United demolished Newcastle, with a 6-0 scoreline that actually flattered their opponents. And now the Geordies appointed Kevin Keegan again.

Though he's unlikely to be a key figure in this season's Premiership battle, it is indeed a fantastic opportunity for reliving some glorious memories.

Who could ever forget that 1996 title race? We were told we would not win anything with kids yet the kids surpassed themselves. The praise and acclaim did not go their way: it was reserved for Keegan's Newcastle who, with their cavalier approach, blew away opponents with ease and had a 12-point lead at halfstage.

But, as we all know, the return of the King revitalised United and the Barcodes could not cope mentally with our relentless pursuit. But the real meltdown, when they finally cracked, did not happen on the pitch.

The defining moment, of course, was Keegan's brilliant rant live on TV. Sir Alex tried to play some of his favourite mind games by claiming teams try harder against us than against Newcastle and that Leeds who put up a good show against us at Old Trafford would not be in such dire relegation trouble had they shown that kind of commitment throughout the season.

Leeds' next opponent was of course Newcastle, that's why the Scot felt it so urgent to give them an advice on how to avoid relegation. An experienced head like Wenger would not have paid much attention to Fergie's attempts at psychological warfare but Keegan, perhaps triggered by the sight Andy Gray's shiny head and his devilish smile, cracked down big time.

His rant became possibly the most famous quote of Premiership history. 'I will luv it, if we beat them, luv it!'

Looking forward to more classic quotes, cavalier approach, games ending in 5-4... can't wait for the clash at St. James' on February 23!
