On 16 January 2008 Newcastle United FC celebrated the return of former manager Kevin Keegan, known as 'King Kev.' A BBC sport website said: "He is back at Newcastle, much to the delight of the majority of the club's fans." A sign of how highly regarded Keegan was on Tyneside was reflected in a statement on Newcastle’s website: "Geordie Messiah to be unveiled as new manager." At the time, former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer was quoted as saying, "He is highly thought-of because of what he [previously] did for the club. Kevin did something special; he's a special person with a special charisma." Expectations were high, but results didn't go as hoped and Keegan was sacked later that year. Only this week former striker Alan Shearer is now being seen as the one to rescue the club, amidst jubilant singing by fans!

Jesus was rightly welcomed as Messiah by the crowd, but he was not the warrior most people wanted. Within days, results were not as hoped or expected.
