WBA Win Has Given Newcastle Confidence Boost

Joe Kinnear has said that although we didn’t look too confident at the end of the game against West Brom the win has given the team a massive lift.

Joe Kinnear – other jobs may be interesting him
Joe talked to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:

“Beating West Brom gave us a massive lift.” “We had been on a dreadful run – even since I have been here we have had massive disappointments.”“We were unlucky with the penalty and sending-off against Manchester City, and could have won the game down at Everton.” “In all of the games I have been here we have done well in the second half.”

“But against West Brom we didn’t play well in the second half.” “We played very nervously and cautiously and in the end it was a massive relief to win.”

“I’ve told the lads never to put me through that again at the end of the game!”

Newcastle are now 3rd bottom of the league with 9 points from our first 10 games, but if we play at our best on Monday night we should be able to get something out of the game with Aston Villa. We’ve got 5 points from our last 4 games and only one defeat and we should try to build on those results.

Joe added

“There is hardly anything in it below seventh spot.” “We have the chance to be on 12 points at the end of Monday night.” “We should feel confident at home to do that.”

As we have already reported Joe’s future will probably be sorted out, one way or the other, after the Chelsea game in 3 weeks time, and with various job vacancies, such at Queens Park Rangers opening up, Kinnear will be a potential logical candidate for those jobs.

But Joe verified the only thing on his mind on Tyneside is to be successful, as long as he’s here:

“Nothing else has crossed my mind but being successful here.” “I have never been frightened to make decisions. If I didn’t have that attitude there would be no point in being here.”

The game on Monday is another vital one for the club, and we hope we’ll get a good crowd out at St. James’ Park for the game.

    Apart from a spell in the first half when we looked good, the team fell away badly. We were hanging on in the end against a very poor team. I don’t see where the optimism should come from.

    The only games this season where we have performed where when KK was in charge. I am dreading the rest of this season unless Ashley sells up quickly.
