Here’s what Sky Sports have had to say ahead of the Sunday-night showing:
‘Newcastle: The Entertainers’, a documentary about Kevin Keegan’s famous Toon side of the 1990s, will air on Sky Sports on Sunday.
With new interviews with David Ginola, Les Ferdinand, Andrew Cole and Sir John Hall, ‘Newcastle: The Entertainers’ retraces the journey of Keegan’s team from the bottom of the old Second Division to the top of the Premier League and reflects upon how – having been 12 points clear at the top of the table – the title eluded them.
Former Newcastle striker Keegan was named manager of the club in February 1992, starting an eventful and lively five-year spell at St James’ Park, ending in his shock resignation in January 1997.
With the likes of Alan Shearer, Ginola, Cole and Ferdinand, Keegan’s side are considered to be among the best sides never to win a trophy; here, Sky Sports’ Greg Whelan charts the rise and fall of a side that entertained a city and a nation.
Newcastle feature on Sky Sports just a few hours before the documentary’s release, with us facing Arsenal at St James’ Park at 2pm.
That’s our Sunday plans sorted!
