Keegan: I want Newcastle fans to dream again

"I know what they want and I know what they don't want as well," he told talkSPORT. "As long as they are realistic and patient I think we can try again to help them have dreams and possibly win something."

Keegan watched as Newcastle overpowered Stoke 4-1 and his first match in charge will be Saturday's home clash with Bolton in the Premier League.

"I am just as excited this time as I was when I came to play here at 31 and when I came as a manager at 43 or 44," he said.

"I think this is right, I have certainly inherited a strong, talented group of players - which is something I didn't have when I came last time.

"When I came last time we were wondering whether we could fill the stadium. That is not a problem.

"They will be trying to get a stadium big enough if we can put some football on and get some success here.

"The job in hand is a big job, it is a great club."
