Still no word from Joe Kinnear, who we are assuming is resting up after Monday’s night’s terrific win by the Magpies, during which he lost his voice with all the shouting and excitement during Newcastle’s best win this season.
Joe Kinnear – has done a very good job so far
Joe lost his voice during the game, which is little surprise when you watch the replays and see him shouting instructions to the players, but in general he looked quite happy near the end of the game, and we could have even won 3-0 or 4-0, with just a little bit of luck in the last 20 minutes.
But our goal difference is now a little better at -4, having improved by 3 in our last two games, and we have 12 points from 11 games, which isn’t too bad at all – given all that’s happened at the club this season. 😀
But we’d love to see the team on 18 points after 13 games, because we have two weaker sides to play in Fulham and Wigan Athletic, for our next couple of games, and we don’t expect to get much out of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 22nd November, but you never know.
We hope Joe reappears at some time today, because we still haven’t heard from him, following the tremendous performance from the lads against Aston Villa, and we look forward to Joe’s comments.
Since Monday evening following the game, there have been comments from Keith Harris of Seymour Pierce Bank, who’s job is to find a buyer for the club. Apparently we are told the club has two solid buyers battling it out for the club, but the time table seems to have slipped by about a month.
The sale is not expected to complete until late this year or early next year, which is a little precarious with the transfer season opening in January.
With much of the season being over by mid-January, and if Joe continues his good work, the new owners may elect to keep Joe through at least the end of the season, for the sake of continuity at least, and we’re sure that would also please our current squad of players.
But again, we have absolutely no idea where we’ll be and who will be the manager by mid-January.
Any ideas? What should the new owners do regarding the manager at Newcastle?
Comments very welcome.
