He did not get off to an auspicious start, as we needed an Ian Culverhouse own goal to help secure a point at Norwich City, with John Barnes bagging our late leveller as we drew 2-2. City keeper Bryan Gunn was sent off for handling outside the area in the final minute, with Chris Sutton nabbing the first two of his seven goals against us.

Julian Gray scored for the Eagles before Stéphane Henchoz put through his own net.
      Wor Kev
      1992 - Kevin Keegan was appointed Manager of Newcastle United for the first time. He was in charge for nearly five years, guiding them to the First Division title in his first full season in charge, and then to within a whisker of the Premiership in 1996.
