One of the many things Joe Kinnear confronted when he came on board at Newcastle, were the players were very quiet in the dressing room.

But it seems that Joe has solved that problem and the players are a lot more willing to say what they think these days.
Joe told the local Sunday Sun today:
“The lads here are prepared to talk now,” “Keeping quiet is maybe a continental thing, but everyone has to be aware what their job is.”
“We used to almost have fights in the Wimbledon dressing room after some games.” “Sometimes you can hurt players’ feelings, but it’s all part of being a professional.”
“Some of them can be a bit precious, but it’s part and parcel of making them better players.”
We do have good team spirit in the squad but that will be tested after our Sunderland defeat. But we think on Tuesday evening, the lads will come out like a runaway train in order to get Joe’s first win at Newcastle, and that will do a lot to raise the spirits of the Newcastle fans.
We think there are enough fighters in this Newcastle squad, who will not let the Sunderland defeat effect us too much, and a game on Tuesday is exactly whet we need to get it out of our system.
A win will get us right back on track. 😀
Howay the Lads!
