Prodigal sons don't often get a lot of comfort time once they return, and it's only fair that Mr. Keegan gets the same treatment. After all, the fanfare surrounding his arrival was so incredibly deafening that it was hard to miss.
He's three games into his second tenure with the Magpies: two 3-0 pastings at the Emirates, and a 0-0 affair at home to Bolton. Three games, no goals. 394 minutes since the last Newcastle goal in the EPL, and 270 scoreless minutes under the Koog.
Joey Barton got a run out last night [to little effect], Koog's struggling to add new players, and now that Dennis Wise has been brought in by Mark Ashley to breathe down Kevin's neck, one wonders when the rains will come.
In light of this development, we're begun the Koogan Klockwatch.
Thanks to Bigus Dickus, we have the Meter in place, and we'll bring you updates whenever these bloody Magpies can find themselves a goal.
We don't expect to have to update this very often.
After the jump, the game tally.
