At last we got our first win since the volcano erupted on the last day of the summer transfer window, which was Monday, September 1st at around 3:00 pm local time.
Joe Kinnear – I have no idea who is going to buy the club
We had won two games in August (Bolton at home and Coventry away), but it’s taken this long for the lads to get over the terrible upheaval that went on at Newcastle when Kevin Keegan walked out, after a dispute with the Newcastle board over players.
But if things on the field are looking up, the uncertainty of just who the new owners will be , and when they will be announced and take over the club, is as uncertain as ever.
Joe Kinnear was asked about his personal situation and he said:
“I go from day to day, to be honest. If it gets sold, it will be up to the new owner.” “I am only on a month-to-month contract, that was the deal before I took over.”“I am well aware I took over because lots of people turned that contract down, but as we go on, I live like everyone else, day to day.”
“I have got no idea who is going to buy the place, but I can throw my hat in the ring whoever buys it. I am not going to get another chance like this.” “But I really don’t know, to be honest. I know it is obviously for sale, but who is going to buy it, I have got no idea.”
Joe’s done a good job with 5 points from his first 4 games, and that’s 5 points better than the previous 4 league games plus a defeat at home to Spurs in the Carling Cup – so he has definitely made a difference – no doubt about that.
But Kinnear’s future is as doubtful as the club’s, and maybe we all should all go day to day until the mess at our club is finally sorted out, once and for all.
But doesn’t that seem like déjà vu – all over again. 🙁
