Happy birthday Kevin Keegan – Watch this video footage and weep.

Yes King Kev turns 64 today.

KK 64 years old – if that doesn’t make you feel old then nothing will.

I feel a bit guilty guiding you towards the video below, there is some great footage of Keegan as a player but it begins with him as manager addressing thousands and thousands of fans at the civic centre in Newcastle.

I was getting quite emotional watching it. That connection you felt with somebody who you could identify with, who was busting a gut to produce exciting winning football and had the skills to deliver.

Hard not to contrast it with the empty vessel that we all now follow, just watch the control Keegan has of the crowd.

Happy Valentine’s!
