I’ve been a Liverpool supporter since the early 70’s and was fortunate enough to be in the Kop when Kevin Keegan made his debut on 14 August 1971 against Nottingham Forest.
After 12 minutes Kevin scored his first goal for the Reds from a mis-hit shot and the rest, as they say, is history.
Fast forward to 1990, one year after I had emigrated to Canada, and I was delighted to find out a tour of ex-first division players, including one Kevin Keegan, were going to be playing a local team.
It just so happened a friend of mine was the sports announcer at the local TV station and he told me he was going to interview Keegan the night before the game. Of course I told him how he was my hero so he invited me to the studio to meet him!
