Kevin, Walls and Bridges

Newcastle vs Arsenal
FA Cup final in 1952
Being a Tottenham Hotspurs fan I was hoping Newcastle could at least keep Arsenal to a draw last weekend, but they beat Newcastle and stopped Spurs getting that coveted 4th spot on the ladder ... ba$+@%&s!
When I saw Newcastle was playing Arsenal, it reminded me of 
Mike Perry's post about John Lennon's #9 Dream and the 
'Walls and Bridges' cover.
John Lennon And The Coincidence With Number 9
Barclays Premier League
St. Kevin of Liverpool/Newcastle
Northern Star - Kevin Keegan?
St. Kevin's, Bangalow

Return to Newcastle

Not even St. Kevin of Newcastle could help to defeat Arsenal from getting that 4th spot on the ladder.

So, Arsenal formed a wall for us and blocked Tottenham from 
getting into the big Euro comps.

John Lennon’s football drawing

I thought it was a coincidence that it would be a clash between Newcastle and Arsenal that would be so important to my team Tottenham, since they are the two teams Lennon drew when he was 11, and that was to be the cover to 'Walls and Bridges'.
Re-reading Mike Perry's post while thinking about my trip to Bangalow, St.Keven's church,
Kevin From Bangalow 
Kevin Keegan, my son Kevin and the Newcastle/Arsenal game, I found a lot of syncs popping up around my day trip to Bangalow.
On the Right Track?
The main reason I went to watch the Bangalow Billy Cart Derby 
Bangalow Lions Billy Cart Derby: Sunday 19th May 2013 
was because of a dream I had about my dead father-in-law John pushing me up and over a hill in a pale blue peddle car.
This dream was so realistic that I pursued it's meaning right through to this day, as I felt it was important for some nagging reason.
The song '#9 Dream' is a similar mystical dream with the name John in it,
that "wasn't just a dream"
and "was magic in the air","The spirit dance was unfolding"
So long ago
Was it in a dream, was it just a dream?
I know, yes I know
Seemed so very real, it seemed so real to me
Took a walk down the street
Thru the heat whispered trees
I thought I could hear (hear, hear, hear)
Somebody call out my name as it started to rain
Two spirits dancing so strange
Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?
Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?
Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?
Dream, dream away
Magic in the air, was magic in the air?
I believe, yes I believe
More I cannot say, what more can I say?
On a river of sound
Thru the mirror go round, round
I thought I could feel (feel, feel, feel)
Music touching my soul, something warm, sudden cold
The spirit dance was unfolding
Ah! b'wakawa pouss?, pouss?(repeat last line a few more times)

Mike wrote in his post how the number 9 is also important to him (Mike) 
especially when added to 76 i.e 976
  Private Eye #976
I came across this issue of 'Private Eye' magazine, number 976 
with the headline "Keegan Shock" on the front page.
Private Eye Magazine #976 - 1999 - May 14th - Kevin Keegan 
from May 1999
If you look at this map of Oklahoma you will see there is a town/suburb named Newcastle just below the cross of the two worst tornado tracks to have hit the area.
One track was from May 1999 and the other was from May 2013.
Played Sunday 19th May 2013.
Mike also wrote that John travelled on the No.72 bus to art college and 7+2=9.
Well, Tottenham (nine letters;-) finished the season on 72 points and 
 Arsenal finished with 72 goals in the net for the season.
 Mike wrote as well -
John and Yoko had an apartment on West 72nd Street and their original Dakota Buildings apartment was No.72.  
(So, two lots of 7+2=9).

Return to Newcastle

 Keegan was born on Valentines Day, Feb 14, 1951.
 And Mike writes that -
The Beatles' first single, Love Me Do, was on Parlophone R4949..
Kevin Keegan released his song 'Head Over Heels in Love' in  1979 
on June the 9th.
Mike said,
Their son Sean was born on October 9th - John's own birthday.
My other son is named Sean and so is my wife's brother 
(which is John's son).
Lennon's '#9 Dream' was a song on his 1974 album 
Walls And Bridges
The album was his ninth non-Beatles album, and was issued in the ninth month of the year. 
 #9 Dream peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was catalogued as Apple R6003 (6+3=9) in the United Kingdom.
 I was born Sept 23rd, which is the ninth month of the year, and I see Kevin Keegan was married on my birthday in 1974.
He has been married to Jean since 23 September 1974, having met her in 1968, and has two daughters Laura and Sarah.

As well as '#9 Dream' John also wrote 'Revolution No.9' and 
'One After 909.
In April 1991, Keegan was attacked while sleeping in his  
Range Rover by the M25 at Reigate Hill in Surrey.
 Narrated a 90-minute documentary 'Keegan on Keegan' released via Castle Vision on VHS cassette in 1992.
Maybe 9 just isn't lucky for Kev;-)
In February 2009, Keegan had three points added to his driving licence after being caught doing 36 mph in a 30-mph zone on the A69 road in August 2008.
This brought his total to twelve points, and he consequently received a six-month driving ban.

Bangalow Billy Cart Races
on Sunday
May 19th, 2013
Football legend Kevin Keegan opens his Soccer Circus in Dubai in the clip above.
Scene from "Jeff: Who Lives at Home".
 "Be Here for the Game"?
And what's the name all the syncs in the movie  
'Jeff: Who Lives at Home' revolves around?
Unfortunately, I didn't realize that there was going to be a celebrity race at the end of the adult races involving Pete Murray and
Tex Perkins of all people.
I left a little bit early to beat the crowd and get back to Brisbane while I had sunshine.
If you go to the 3:50 minute mark the clip above this one, you'll see Pete Murray in a red car with what looks to me as a number 7 on the front.

Oh SHOOT!!! I could just kick myself
for missing that race

bought Sunday in Bangalow
Never know what you might miss in Bangalow if you blink;-)
Arsenal Supporters Race;-)
As much as I thought Keegan was a good player, there is one guy who wore the 
Liverpool #7 shirt who I thought was better, I feel;-)
Keegan's last game as Newcastle's manager was against Arsenal.


  1. Wow. Lennon, dreams, Keegan, numbers...all connected. Only you would finds these synchros, Daz. But what powerful connections they are.

  2. Very impressive. I'll be back to read the post again later when I have more time. Lots to take in.

  3. Was looking through some old football programmes, many from my dad and came across Spurs v Newcastle from 1955 - thought you might be interested so scanned it and put it on a post I don't use:
