remember the town fans stripping him down to his kegs when we got promoted against exeter and hoisting him on our shoulders towards the main stand , those size 15 hi techs will be tearing up the clouds in heaven , plus a typical ace goal at plough lane , RIP big man

Big Keith would score spectacular goals then miss one from a yard out, but was town through and through.
I had the pleasure of having a cup of tea with him in a motorway service area ( i was a manager there nothing football related)once just 2 days after he was sacked by Lincoln. I asked if he minded and we spoke for 15 minutes or more on how he changed tactics  at Lincoln how he felt he was just a few weeks from the start o achieving what he set out to do , his time at Town nothing was too much trouble for him to chat about.

Top Man

The boss told me to put it in the corner.....i thought he meant the top corner.

As most fans have said, Keith was a real gentleman with no pretensions or delusions of grandeur. He wa sjust happy making a living out of playing the game. His uncanny ability to trap the ball in his gonds region, turn with the ball apparently stuck there, and then volley the dropping ball towards goal was amazing. The whackiest front two ever with Stevie Saunders? Great memories of a truly great man....

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Already posted on this link and I am still in shock about this and truly saddened. I think Keith was a guy who was universally popular. People like Ferguson, Mourinho and Wenger have lovers and haters alike but Big Keith seemed to be hugely popular in the eyes of all those who experienced him both as a player and a manager.

I too hope that there is a fitting tribute at a future home game for him. He was in the team when I got my first season ticket and I used to sit behind Buckley's dugout in the Main Stand and as an impressionable 11 year old used to make me laugh at how Buckley could both praise and then crucify Keith within a matter of minutes.

As some have said not the most gifted footballer but a true gentleman.

Sadly missed.
