Good news today that Joe Kinnear has had dinner with Derek Llambias the last couple of nights and he has also taken some issues from captain Michael Owen to Derek. And Llambias has told Joe there are currently eight potential buyers for Newcastle United.
Derek Llambias – had dinner with Joe Kinnear – and talked!
That’s not surprising since both men are probably staying in the same hotel and will be looking for someone to have dinner with, but Joe has done well to try to clear things up.
Derek has provided information back to to Michael; and the players. That’s great that Joe is doing to try to fix the bad communication problem between the Board and the players, but why did it have to take an interim manager to do this. Joe is showing good leadership here.
Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I have had a long chat with Michael Owen and he told me that one of the problems with the players has been that they have been kept in the dark as to what is happening.”
“Now, after talking at length to Derek Llambias, I have been able to have a clear-the-air talk with Michael in his role as skipper, and this has been passed on to the rest of the players.”
“They are now up to date with what is going on and they are a lot happier.”
Kinnear said that he probably will not resign Newcastle right full-back Stephen Carr, who is still currently without any club. Fromn comments on this site yesterday, that will be good news to many Newcastle fans. Carr was never the most popular player at the club.
More good work from Joe Kinnear – keep it up.
