Joe Kinnear Still Missing With Loss Of Voice?

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.

    He might be talking to the two buyers to inform them what possible outlay may be needed in January plus any other footy business. Any buyer would certainly need that info.
    Any idea who the US based but not US owned buyer may be, ie according to the Sunday Sun the other week. A chinese lot is supposed to be the other party.

    Keep JFK till the end of the season which’ll maintain a bit of stability whilst thoroughly and carefully drawing up and interviewing managers who can take us progressively forward over the next 10 years and back to Europe. I don’t want any more August sackings!!! And much as I respect Big Joe at 61 is he the man for the future? Sorry but no.

    Look at the league table- never thought such a poor start would be so good.

    Despite our terrible start and the ‘down with the boro’ chants from the Mackems- we are still above them in the table.

    Fulham and Wigan are very beatable- certainly with the current form- although remember that Fulham have turned over Arsenal this season, and Wigan thumped Hull 5-0.

    That was a number of weeks ago, and I fancy 6 points from these two.

    We will go nowhere under Kinnear, he’s alright for now but once we can get a proper coach in we should.

    JFK will remain on a rolling contract until a new owner is at the club.

    I heard that both contenders are from the USA. I hope one of them is Gates.

    I hope HOPE we can pick up 6 points from the next 2 games – then we can go to Chelski not worrying – and hopefully play with a bit of freedom.

    Funny adam,
    couldn’t agree more…Lol!..

    …Respect due to JK!..I bet he gets right into players faces & tells ’em…More power to him!..
    …Don’t think anyone expecys him to be here long term, he is 61, but he had the balls to take the chalise & has done a top job so far!..
    …Don’t hear any ‘pundits’ sayin’ owt nice yet, shitehawks!..If he was at…

    Adam – brilliant. Cracked up.

    I agree that it would be sensible to keep JFK until the end of the season, then consider him along with all other applicants for the full-time job.

    I’m not convinced that he can switch from rescuer to top-4-penetrator, but who knows? I certainly wouldn’t have thought he’d have done what he has so far – so I’m quite hoping he’ll continue to confound skeptics like me!

    Eeeh, ennit nice to be talking about good stuff?

    Temuri Ketsabaia as manager and Shearer assistant manager with JK upstairs sounds like the ideal solution.
