More details have emerged today over the on-going Keegan v Newcastle unfair dismissal compensation claim. The London Evening Standard claims that our former boss is claiming the previously unprecedented sum of £9m, probably to prop up his ailing Soccer Circus shambles.

Keegan is claiming for the three and a half years of lost wages caused by his untimely exit, which he claims was down to constructive elements, namely being the appointment and actions of Dennis Wise against the policy of Keegan having ultimate control of first team affairs.

The claim however looks to take that long to settle that it could end up being the problem of whoever takes over the club.
