Why Guingamp’s Jocelyn Gourvennec would be ideal Newcastle manager

Predicting what Mike Ashley has got in store for Newcastle United is a dangerous game to play.

There have been few melt downs quite as magnificent as the one depicted in the video above, when a naïve Kevin Keegan fell prey to the mind games of arch-schemer Sir Alex Ferguson at the business end of the 1995-96 Premier League season.
