Kinnear Hopes He’s Back In Game Long Term

Joe Kinnear hopes his stint at Newcastle will land hima more poermanent job in football management.

Joe Kinnear – arriving for his stint with Newcastle

Joe told the Newcastle Journal today:

“After leaving Forest I was driven mad, hearing that people were saying, ‘He’s got a dodgy ticker, he’s got to take it easy’,”

“It’s rubbish. I’m feeling great. I don’t mind being judged on results, but let’s forget the medical thing.”

“Whatever happens, it’s a great chance for me to put my name back in the frame and, if I do a good job, who knows what might be around the corner?”

It really is a win win situation for Joe and Newcastle United, if Joe can prove that he still has it, and certainly he’s made a good start at the club.

But we cannot get carried away after just one game, and we’ll know better a week today, when we take on Manchester City at St. James’ Park, the level of progress the team has made under Joe.

And with things seemingly going very quiet on the selling front, it could be that Joe is at Newcastle longer than the 8 games he initially signed up for.

Comments welcome.

    Im happy enough for JK to stay as interim manager not permenatly. We need a new owner and manager. No point going back in time again. We have to move forward. If JK does a good job fair play to him. I wish him all the best.

    JK has nowt to loose to be fair he can do and say exactly what he wants and I think us toon fans welcome that.

    We have been kept in the dark for too long over what is going on at SJP.

    Since JK’s infamous press conference has anyone noticed how the ‘club insider’ stories have dropped off dramatically ???

    Funny that the press how nowt to publish if it has to be the truth – or am i just being cynical? lol 🙂

    I’d love to ‘forget the medical thing’ but it’s a big risk. This is probably the 2nd most stressful job in football after the England job, and we have to accept that we could wake up to ‘JFK found dead’ headlines.

    Let’s just sit back and let things unfold. We’ve done our bit and the time for imposing fans’ will is past. The team needs support, and that’s our job.
