His playing career started at Scunthorpe United in 1968 and by the time he retired in 1984 he was playing for Newcastle United, but the most successful years of his career were spent at Liverpool and Hamburg. However, despite scoring over 30 goals in 90 appearances for Hamburg, Keegan was often unhappy at the club, referring to his time in Germany as 'his own personal This Life'.[citation needed] Scunthorpe United F.C. are an English football team based in the town of Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, England. ...

Life and playing career

Keegan was rejected by local club Doncaster Rovers but made the grade further towards the east coast when Scunthorpe United offered him terms. He made 120 appearances for the club before an offer of £35,000 was accepted from Liverpool manager Bill Shankly in the summer of 1971.

Liverpool

On 14 August 1971 Keegan made his Liverpool debut against Nottingham Forest at Anfield and after 12 minutes he scored, albeit with a mis-hit shot after he failed to control a pass from Peter Thompson. He quickly established himself as a brave, pacey, incisive goalscorer and fan favourite. Keegan was also being tracked by England, making his debut at under-23 level later in 1971. His full debut came in a World Cup qualifier against Wales at Ninian Park the following year. The game finished in a 1–0 victory for the English and, more importantly for Keegan, was the first of his 63 caps. Keegan's first goal for his country also came in a game against Wales at Ninian Park.

Late in 1973, Keegan was a substitute as England faced Poland at Wembley, needing to win to secure a place at the World Cup the following summer. With the score at 1-1 and England close to elimination, Keegan started to get changed when he heard manager Alf Ramsey say, "Kevin, get ready". However, Ramsey was in fact speaking to Derby County striker Kevin Hector, who was duly introduced as a late substitute and very nearly scored with his first touch.

The following year Keegan was again a frequent scorer but Liverpool surrendered the League title to a Leeds United team who had gone unbeaten for a then-record 29 games at the start of the season. However, Liverpool progressed to the FA Cup final. Their campaign in the competition had started with a tie against the club which had rejected Keegan, Doncaster Rovers, and it was Keegan who scored both Liverpool goals in a 2–2 draw. Liverpool won the replay. Keegan scored twice more on the way to Wembley, including a lob-volley over the head of England colleague Peter Shilton in the semi-final against Leicester City at Villa Park. In the final, Keegan scored two as Liverpool Newcastle United 3–0 - his first a chest-down and volley from 25 yards after Brian Hall had fooled the Newcastle defence by diving under the ball; his second a far-post stretch and tap-in after work down the flank between Tommy Smith and Steve Heighway.

Keegan's next visit to Wembley was three months later in the Charity Shield game, the traditional curtain-raiser to a new season between the League champions and the FA Cup winners. However, Keegan was sent off, along with Leeds captain Billy Bremner, after a scuffle on the pitch. Both players removed their shirts in protest, with Keegan visibly shaken by the decision. The fight was shown that night on BBC television and both were fined £500, with Keegan being suspended for three games and Bremner eight.

The next year saw Keegan scoring goals and representing his club and country, but 1975 was a trophyless season for Liverpool and England failed to qualify for the 1976 European Championships.

In 1977, Keegan was instrumental in Liverpool's progress towards an unprecedented "treble" of League championship, FA Cup and European Cup, though midway through the season he announced his intention to leave in the summer to play abroad. Nevertheless, Keegan was irrepressible as Liverpool clinched the title and reached the finals of both Cup competitions. Keegan's last appearance in a Liverpool shirt on home soil, however, saw Liverpool losing the FA Cup final to bitter rivals Manchester United, ending the possibility of the "treble". The European Cup final in Rome against Borussia Mönchengladbach was four days later. Keegan didn't score, but he did make a late run which led to a foul inside the penalty area by Berti Vogts. This led to a penalty which was successfully converted by Phil Neal, sealing a 3–1 win.

Keegan later said, "The only thing I fear is missing an open goal in front of the Kop. I would die if that were to happen. When they start singing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' my eyes start to water. There have been times when I've actually been crying while I've been playing."[3] Spion Kop (or Kop for short) is the name for a number of terraces and stands at football stadia; so named due to their steep nature, resembling a hill in Natal, South Africa that was the scene of a battle in the Second Boer War where a majority of the...

On 10 February 1980, Lawrie McMenemy called a press conference at the Potters Heron hotel, Ampfield to announce that the European Footballer of the Year would be joining Southampton F.C. in the forthcoming summer. The news caused surprise throughout the world of football and around the city of Southampton, as Southampton were a relatively small club.

In the following season, Keegan was able to produce some of his best form and at the end of January 1982 Southampton sat at the top of the Division 1 table, but a run of only three wins from the end of February meant a rather disappointing 7th place finish.[6] Despite this, Keegan was voted the PFA Player of the Year, and awarded the OBE for services to Association Football.

He finally reached a World Cup when England got to the 1982 finals in Spain. He was duly named in the squad for the tournament but was suffering from a chronic back injury and was unfit to play in all of England's group games. In a last, desperate effort to play in a World Cup (he knew that he would not be around for the 1986 competition) he secretly hired a car and drove from Spain to a specialist he knew in Germany for intensive treatment. It worked to the extent that he came on as a substitute for a crucial second round pool game against the host nation which England had to win.

When Bobby Robson became the new England coach after that World Cup, Keegan was left out of his first squad, a decision he learned of from the media rather than Robson himself.

Keegan had fallen out with McMenemy over the manager's failure to strengthen Southampton's defence (which conceded 67 goals in 1981–82) whilst the team was at the top of the table.[7] There were also rumours that McMenemy had charged the whole team of cheating after a 3-0 defeat by Aston Villa in April 1982 to which Keegan took great exception. Although Keegan joined Saints' next pre-season tour, he had already decided to move on to seek a new challenge, and a few days before the start of the 1982–83 season he signed for Second Division Newcastle United for a fee of £100,000.

Managerial career

Newcastle United

On 5 February 1992, almost eight years after his final game as a player, Keegan returned to football as manager of Newcastle United.

Survival was achieved and Newcastle would be playing in the new Division One for the 1992-93 season. Most observers tipped Newcastle to finish higher than the 20th position they had occupied the previous season, but an 11-match winning start to the season saw them establish themselves as most people's favourites for the Division One title by October. They led the league virtually all season, and the club record signing of Bristol City striker Andy Cole in February further strengthened their side; Cole netted 12 goals in the club's final 12 games.

But a 1-0 defeat at the hands of fellow title challengers Manchester United cut the gap to one point on 4 March, and within two weeks Newcastle's lead was overhauled and they were unable to recover it, with a 1-1 draw for Newcastle against Tottenham on the final day of the season handing the title to Manchester United, whose 3-0 triumph at Middlesbrough would have won them the title regardless of Newcastle's result against Tottenham.

When Sven-Göran Eriksson became England manager, Eriksson appointed the 64-year old Tord Grip as his assistant.

The return to Newcastle

Keegan had a disappointing first 8 games back at Newcastle, not winning a single match.

On 20 April 2008, Keegan maintained his perfect record over local rivals Sunderland with a 2–0 home Tyne-Wear derby win.[13] which secured mathematical safety from relegation, allowing Keegan to plan for his stated contract length of the next three full seasons at the club. With a 2-2 away draw for the following game at West Ham, the 8 game run of no wins had been turned into a 7 game unbeaten run.
