Joe Kinnear has today come out and said he wants to remain undefeated at St. James’ Park for the duration of his Tyneside tenure.
Joe Kinnear – 8 points from his 4 home games
Newcastle played awful in the first half on Saturday, and spent almost the whole of the second half trying to get back on level terms.
And then, with just 10 minutes to go, and all within 7 minutes we had gone ahead 2-1. But amazingly we then gave a late goal away to a 10 man Wigan side. Not good.
We lost 2 points against Man City at home, when we deserved the win, and now we’ve lost 2 points when we had got our noses in front with one minute of normal time left. But that’s all woulda, coulda shoulda – and water under the bridge now.
While Joe Kinnear is bitterly disappointed, he also takes some solace from the fact that Newcastle are now unbeaten in all 4 home games he’s been in charge of at St. James’ Park.
Joe talked to nufcTV today:
“It’s four games undefeated now at home, but really it should be four wins because we’ve conceded late equalizers against both Man City and Wigan,”
“We really have to make this place a fortress. We’ve taken eight points from twelve but if we’d won just one of those drawn games we’d be in 11th.”
“I want to stay undefeated for as long as I’m here.”
It’s a really difficult time right now for Joe and the players, not to mention the fans, because there are mounting problems that the Newcastle Board seems unwilling, or unable to step up to, and we think this calamitous state of affairs may now be starting to get to Joe and the players.
We need some communications from the Board, and dare we say it – some stability at our club.
