The Run of Play is a blog about
the wonder and terror of soccer.
We left the window open during a match in October 2007 and a strange wind blew into the room.
Now we walk the forgotten byways of football with a lonely tread, searching for the beautiful, the bewildering, the haunting, and the absurd.
Kevin Keegan and I have talked about this, though, and we’ve agreed that it’s entirely his fault: not yours, and certainly not mine. He won’t be able to serenade the winner, now, but if it’s all right with you, he would still like to sing you a song. Here he is, then, a chastened Kevin Keegan, a wiser Kevin Keegan, with a very special rendition of “Let Me Put My Love Into You,” from AC/DC’s 1980 masterpiece, Back in Black.
