Joe Kinnear Has Troops Ready For Derby Game


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.

Comments welcome.

    3 points is what we hope for.
    1 point would save face.
    0 points would end Joe’s career here and give me no end of grief at work.

    i,ve looked at some of their boards,they are coming across as confident.
    i think this is bravado,they are sh###ing themselves.
    i think they will go in as favourites to win,so the pressure is on them.
    we can go there and play without fear,with all the cash they have wasted lets see how far it gets them on saturday.
    believe me come 2.30 they will look like mugs.

    our best possible team, is given enrique coloccini taylor beye, barton guthrie and butt in centre mid, and martins and jonas either side of owen upfront.

    for sunderland, i would just love to see jonas, barton and martins back playing well and playing to the best of their ability.

    we will need the midfield to be battling for ninety minutes to ease pressure of the defence, which why i think tough tackling guthrie, butt and barton to support the forwards is the best option.

    my prediction – -2-2 draw.

    I think they probably are confident – probably as they are favourites to win,

    not that I necessarily agree…

    imo they will view this as their best chance to beat us,ie turmoil etc,so the bookies will have them as favourites to win.
    i know form goes out of the window,i know what you,re saying rooks i think they are poor side sunderland.
    the money they have spent will have their fans thinking this is their best team they had had in a while.
    the mackems will expect,but as i have said i believe the pressure is on them,we can go and play our normal game.
    i think we have f##k all to worry about from them.
