Joe Kinnear has been appointed as Newcastle United manager today until the end of October.
Joe Kinnear – new Newcastle manager
The former Wimbledon and Luton Town manager is known for being good at building up team spirit on little or no resources and continued the great work of the crazy gang after Harry Bassett and Bobby Gould had left Wimbledon.
So we think this could be a good appointment, although it seems it’s for an initial 5 weeks until the end of October. If Joe can instill some pride back into the Newcastle players, we’ll do well again, and Joe obviously will want to do very well, eben if he’s only in the job for 5 weeks, it’s a great opportunity for the manager.
Kinnear’s last job was at Nottingham Forest where the 61-year-old was sacked in 2004, but he is an experienced manager and we’re just pleased we have someone in now, who can hopefully turn the mess around.
Joe knows that if he can do that he will get massive support and massive thanks from the Toon Army – that’s for sure.
We very much welcome Joe to the club.
