Joe Kinnear Wise To Stay Out Of Newcastle Politics

Joe Kinnear has today rightly said he has no intention of getting involved with the political problems surrounding Newcastle United, and will concentrate on his job, which is the playing side of the club.

Joe Kinnear – concentrating only on the playing side

Kinnear told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle:

“I stay away from the political side of it, and I never even met Tony Jimenez.”

“I don’t know anything about the political side of things. That has been the same from day one.”

“To be honest, I am not interested in anything apart from the football side of it.”

The next two games will be big ones, with Newcastle at home to Manchester City, and we hope a sell-out crowd will help support Joe and the lads for that vital game, and of course the following game is at Sunderland – and no more needs to be said on that one.

Joe added

“I am strictly looking at things from a football point of view and nothing else.” “All I am looking at is getting as many points as possible – that’s what football is about.”

“And when the confidence starts to come back, it will get a lot better in terms of points.”

Kinnear traveled to Cardiff last night to watch Steven Taylor captain the England Under-21 side against Wales, which was the first leg of their playoff for the Under-21 European Finals. In an exciting game, England eventually won 3-2.

Joe added:

“I will spend the weekend glued to the box to see if any of the lads get injured.”

“I will take in as many of the games as possible that the players are involved in.”

This will be a good little rest for Joe, who has been in Newcastle since he was appointed interim manager, until he traveled to Cardiff for the Under-21 game.

He can get to work preparing the team next week, and he will plenty of time since the game is on Monday evening – so that will help us.

Comments welcome.
