Joe Kinnear Overwhelmed By Fantastic Newcastle Support


Joe Kinnear has been supported to the hilt by the Newcastle United faithful, and he seems a little overwhelmed by the support.

Joe Kinnear – knocked out by fans’ support

Joe was brave enough to come in when everything was utter doom and gloom at St. James’ Park and we had a string of losing games, and no sign of Mike Ashley or the Board anywhere to be seen.

And so far Joe has dome more than a decent job at the club, but the really big thing he has achieved is to put the pride back into the playing squad, and while we haven’t picked up tons of points, and were beaten by arch rivals Sunderland on Saturday, he has nevertheless steadied the ship – and he deserves enormous credit for that.

The Dublin-born manager has today, for the first time, admitted he never quite bargained on just how much of an impact the supporters have upon the players in the world famous black and white stripes.

Joe told nufcTV after Tuesday’s 2-1 win over West Brom at Gallowgate.

“I’m absolutely knocked out by the support that we’ve got,” “I don’t think you can beat Newcastle, I don’t think there’s any comparison.”

“They play their part and are just a fantastic crowd, they really are.” “It’s something that I’d never witnessed before.” “They carried us through against Man City and again they were fantastic.”

It was of course an extremely tense second half to watch for the Newcastle faithful, and for Joe.

But at the end of the day, the lads held out, and the defense stuck to their task with just a touch of luck, to collect what was a much-needed and so valuable 3 points.

Joe continued:

“I know the fans got edgy, I got edgy as well because I was desperate for my first victory,”

“But I’m delighted for them and they deserve the win more than anybody and long may it continue.”

We’re starting to take to Joe, all we need to do now is actually beat Villa and we may be right back on track – and that would that be some result.

And we hope we will see a nice big crowd at St James’ Park on Monday night, where, as Joe so rightly points out, the Newcastle faithful have been fantastic to both Joe and our players, these last few difficult games.

The Newcastle game is being broadcast live on TV around the world again.

And we are assuming the NUSC (the newly formed Newcastle United Supporters’ Club), are not advocating staying away from St. James’ Park – as part of their boycott plans of Mike Ashley – that would do nothing but harm.

Comments welcome.

    I too am warming to JK, but we where lucky against West Brom, the amount of times they carved up our defence, was worrying, thank god they couldn’t finish.
    Big test for JK next game Villa will be a different league and as much as I would love a win, I think a draw would be a fantastic result for us.

    Juries still out .. we need a win against Villa more importantly… but if we get another 6 points from the next 3 games he’s doing well..

    totsy the answer is obviousely gutierrez

    and is is just me or does any 1 else think joe is just saying this to get the fans on his side(though the majority already are)

    i mean we havent been anything special realy except for against city and the away support against the mackems was carguably better than the home support

    beyethegreat, agreed gutierrez by a long shot .. it could have been Collocini but i can’t judge Collocini too well as you can’t tell if its him or Taylor that are losing their heads in defence .. IMO its Taylor but I could be wrong..

    Totsy –

    Best signing- guttierez
    Worst signing- xisco (but we havent really seen him play)
    Best prospect-Danny Guthrie
    Cleverest signing – Guthrie

    What i mean by cleverest signing is how we were clever in buying a good player

    If we draw with villa its good aslong as we beat fulham and wigan

    18 points from 13 games would be more like newcastle!

    about taylor imo taylor is for fault with a lot of the goals we have concieded

    but i think he will improve because he seems inteligent enough and he will have the commitment to improve

    especially when colo gets used to the prem

    also a question needs to be asked as to whether our coaching staff are good enough

    here is a list of young players that have not improved as much as they should have

    zog

    milner

    taylor

    enrique

    edgar (though not sure how much potential he had anyway )

    newcastle play well when they attack.thet should always attack whatever the position maybe.if they sit back then its only harm for us because we r not strong defensively enough.even a team like west brom opened our defense swiftly. we love newcastle score more goals.

    come on newcastle .

    A supporters club built on hatred, rather than supporting, will never be effective.

    even though we won, we were playing the worst team in the league, playing poorly, at home.

    i think an absolute malling is round the corner for us, kinnear isnt good enough, im sorry. he wouldnt be able to attract the players.

    we need an experienced manager who will shake things up.

    Jamie G,
    i do agree mate, i’m just a bit sick atm…We won, which is what we were expected to do…& while it wasn’t pretty in the 2nd half…The team is just tryin’ to regain it’s composure & got nervous as the game drew to an end…

    …They can feel the wait of expectation mate!..

    …But, we won!..& a win is a win!..

    …We can’t afford to be drawin’ out the nervousness in the team…They’ve gotta feel like they’re gettin’ somewhere, otherwise they’ll end up thinkin’: ‘what do we have to do to please this lot?’..
    …Unreserved support can go a long way at this club!..
    …Ho’way the Toon!..

    Danny has been the best because he passes the ball as if he were lampard.bassong is my second cos he is strong and confident.
    Also he is a determined player twice better than enrique
