Amazing events at White Hart Lane may have not gone unnoticed by Joe Kinnear this morning.
Gus Poyet - can he help Joe out at Newcastle?
Spurs replaced manager Juande Ramos with Harry Redknapp on Saturday, and of course Harry was very close to taking the Newcastle United job only last January.
We’re sure Harry will make a big difference at the London club, and he’s already made a winning start to his tenure there by winning 2-0 against Bolton yesterday, for their very first win of the season. Well at least Spurs fans will be happy this morning.
Gus Poyet is now available, and it may be that Joe Kinnear will approach Gus to see if he is willing to come up to Newcastle and help him out with the coaching over the next 5 weeks or so at Newcastle.
It may even work for Gus, who can get his mind off being sacked, and get involved in what will be a big challenge for him. We like Gus a lot, because he seems to have so much spirit and is obviously great with the players, having played the game himself at the highest level.
We have a very very thin coaching staff which is another reason we need to give Joe, Chris and the other coaches all the support we can muster in these very uncertain times. The 40 year-old Poyet is of course Uruguayan, and we have Ignacio Gonzalez from Uruguay currently at the club.
Come to think of it, Ignacio should be recovered from his Achilles injury very soon and we wonder if there are any Uruguayan restaurants in Newcastle these days? .
We hope that Dennis Wise or Mike Ashley can help to get Poyet to the club to help Joe with the coaching side of things – that’s only if Joe wants that help of course.
Comments very welcome – but please keep them decent – thanks.
