Joe Kinnear seems to have fallen in love with the Newcastle United club, the City and the fans, as he told the News Of The World (NOTW) today, that the fans have already given him the biggest buzz of his life, without a shadow of a doubt.
Joe Kinnear – the biggest buzz of my life at St. James’ Park
Joe talked to the NOTW today in a lengthy interview:
“On Monday, the crowd were chanting my name. The staff said ‘Are you listening gaffer?’ “
“There were forty-odd thousand singing ‘There’s only one Joe Kinnear’.”
“The biggest buzz of my life without a shadow of a doubt.”
After the game, owner Mike Ashley sent Joe a message of congratulations, and it seems like Mike would love to come and watch the Newcastle games again, but he cannot because of the fury over allowing Kevin Keegan to resign in early September, and Mike is hardly popular right now with the Newcastle faithful, to say the least.
“Mike sent me a message after we beat Villa. He said he wished he was there.” “He said he was sorry but there were circumstances why he couldn’t come.”
“I said that is another thing that I hope you can put right. He loves his football, he loves the club, his kids love it.”
“I wish I had the answer for him.” “I think if he doesn’t sell it, I would like to see him back in the stands. Get the supporters around a table and sit down and have a good positive meeting.”
“Maybe we could heal whatever wounds there are.”
Well we don’t think that will happen, because there is more news today that an American consortium will be launching a big offer for the club, and that’s what Newcastle fans would like to see.
But if Joe wins his next two games, before the Chelsea game at Stamford Bridge on November 22nd, he will have done more than a solid job for the Newcastle United football club, and the fans will not forget it, that’s for sure.
If he wins his next 3 games, the job is his. 😀
