Newcastle’s manager Joe Kinnear is looking forward to his first taste of the Tyne-Wear derby on Saturday, and he’s now heard so much about those games.
Joe Kinnear – looking forward to Derby game
Joe told nufcTV today:
“I’ve played in numerous derbies in my career, the Arsenal and Tottenham derbies, and managed in derbies.” “But I haven’t done this one and, by all accounts, this is one of the best derbies in the country to be involved in.”
“It will be a great game for us to get something out of and I know what it means to the supporters.” “Hopefully we can go there and put on the same sort of performance like we have in the past couple of games,”
“But that won’t be easy because Roy Keane has done a fantastic job there and it will be a tough one for us.” “Having said that, the confidence is coming back in the players and if we can get Jonas Gutierrez and one or two others back then we could go there with an even stronger side.”
“The dressing room for me said it all after the Man City match, everyone was going around doing high-fives.” “Everyone’s a collective unit and there’s a lot of confidence now.” “So hopefully it will put us in good stead for the Sunderland game.”
We need 3 points on Saturday, that’s all we’ll say, and if we can get the win, it will be just fantastic for Joe and the lads.
