Kinnear Thanks The Great Traveling Toon Army


Joe Kinnear is enjoying the accolades that his Newcastle team are receiving for their never-say-die performance against a very good Chelsea side on Saturday, who just couldn’t find a way to score against a completely committed Newcastle side, that Joe and his coaching staff had prepared so perfectly for the significant challenge at Stamford Bridge.

The Toon Army – Joe and players didn’t let them down

But the lads kept to their game-plan and got what in the end they fully deserved, in gaining a valuable point from the capital, against one of the best teams in Europe.

Joe said today:

“It was a team effort, and I’m delighted for the Geordie fans that traveled down,” “We didn’t let them down – we rolled our sleeves up and deserved to get something out of the game.”

“I think we’d been written off before the match, and Chelsea were 1/6 on. We had a game plan. We decided we’d drop off a bit more and let them have it at the back.”

“As long as they played it across and in front of us, we were always nice and comfortable. Then, of course, with the pace we’ve got, we could grab the opportunity if and when we made it.”

“When Spider-man (Jonas Gutierrez) went down the line and dribbled past one or two of them on that right hand side and pulled it back, I thought that was the one. I thought Oba (Martins) was going to stick it away, but it was great defending on their part.”

“There’s not many people going to come here and get the result we got, and this will boost confidence. Everybody’s on fire. It feels like a victory.”

Joe was right when he said the players didn’t let the traveling fans down, and the fans were in full voice at the end of the game, delighted by their team’s grit and courage.

And Joe will now experience the vibes in the City of Newcastle today, and all this week, that is the warmth, delight and utter passion that follows a great Newcastle performance, even though we didn’t win.

That’s what it’s like after a good performance and yes it’s almost the exact opposite – doom and gloom – after a pathetic performance – but that’s what passion is, both the good and the bad.

We must now be consistent and challenge for a win at Middlesbrough on Saturday, and really build on what was an unexpected but fabulous performance in London on Saturday.

Howay The Lads!

    Good job to Joe and his team. Now go and get 3 pts vs. Boro!

    I am sure Joe will keep the same XI who started against Chelsea, and like the Chelsea game, will bring on Zoggy and Shola at some point.

    As i said earlier 2 points from the last 9 is not good enough but JFK’s doin such a good job we drew against Chelski!

    Sign him up 4 life!

    Believe me the gates will continue to drop while this regime are still at SJP and good players will leave at the earliest opportunity!

    kk forever-i think thats a little harsh mate. the man takes his football seriously and seems to be genuinly passionate about the fact he’s managing us. He’s clearly delighted to be back in the game and is looking to do everything he can to get us results. Everyone has had a go at him tactically recently (as have i), but i think him and his coaching staff got it spot on on saturday.

    i also find this hilarious, kammy on the SS website

    “I spoke to Joe Kinnear on Friday night and he told me he showed his players a video of Chelsea – but after a few minutes he turned it off and they focused on what they were going to do, not what Chelsea were going to do”

    kk forever-i agree mate, trust me i fully agree in thinking we should have done better in the games mentioned.
    However, you have to look at certain games

    man city-an equaliser in the final few minutes, which to be fair kinnear could do nothing about. (and fully underserved as Beye never should have been dismissed)

    Wigan-same as above, you could have guessed bramble would equalise, again the dying minutes.
    (a lack of communication from defence, the corner never should have been conceeded in the first place)

    the mackems- we werent anywhere near good enough, a few decisions he made regarding substituions may have been wrong, but keep in mind we were without Jonas and barton until the dying minutes, looked a different team when they came on and were beaten by an unstoppable strike.

    Fulham-i agree, we should have done alot better, yet it was a defensive howler from cacapa (arguably two) that let them in for simple goals.

    On another note, what do people think of kazim richards? he has issued a “come and get me” plea to premiership clubs regarding the Jan transfer window. Not that we’d have the money, and i havent seen much of him, i’m just curious!

    Ross – I think he makes a good impact sub due to his pace, but I haven’t seen enough of him to say he’d go into the first team.

    Yes have to say Joe is doing a terrific job considering the barebones remnant of a team he was saddled with.
    His record is much better than KK`s.
    I dont know what the hell he tells these guys, but he`s got them playing harder than any team i have seen in quite a while.
    The least he deserves is to keep the job until the end of the season.

    51times-from what i’ve seen in the CL as you say he looks quick, and on the few occasions i have watched him, he’s looked lively. Sky sports seem to think he’d cost around 4 million.

    Record much better than KK what a load of bolloxs. Look at who we played when KK first came back and what he had to play with.

    Jokin is doing an OK job and that is it OK

    He’d be good backup on the right for Jonas, but I think Kinnear is fine with using Lua Lua in that role.

    i think we need to stop this whole kinnear is ashleys puppet thing

    1 coz he seems to be extremely genuine and honest

    2 even if he is ashleys puppet we have no other option but to trust him he personally hasnt done anything against us infact hes doing us a favour

    (though thats noy yo say we arent helping him out)

    when ma took over i believed the best in him coz he hadnt done anything wrong and i had no other choice

    its the same with kinnear he hasnt done anything wrong

    if he does do something wrong then we can tell him to fluff off

    but at current just let him get on with doing the very best he can

    and at the very least hes got the team playing with some fight

    KK forever the teams that took points from us are pretty good and the leauge does not lie! I think the victory over aston villa would go a long way in my opinion for JK. I do belive there are better coaches out there but NUFC is not the most attractive jobs at the mo. Considering the job C H was doing before JK I am glad he is here!
    E.G Even if he is a bit of a yes man at the moment, remeber put yourself in that position, you are on a temp contract in a job you love, you have been given a chance by MA therefore it is only RESPECT that you do not buck the trend! I still think it is more to KK resignation than meets the eye therefore yet again I want MA to stay. Just improve on the PR,replace the chairman and back JK. He would know how to spend money!

    in my humble opinion jk has the balls to defend himself and use some common sense with tactics – basic stuff keegan obviously didnt show – communication etc!

    i would love to see kinnear in charge at least till the end of the season – however can he attract talent to the club…i dont know!

    I see DW was in the crowd Saturday, which aint to surprising as he is ex-Chelsea, wonder who he was shouting for. At least MA used to wear a Toon shirt at games.
    Any see the tub of lard who had Lampard and Terry tattoed on his chest, now there is committment to his team.

    I would love to have Kazim Kazim here. He has great composure on the ball and can play almost anywhere in midfield. He probably wants to leave Fenerbace because of their racist prick of a manager. How could he drop him from the squad all together for no apparent reason!?

    Kazim Kazim would give us the aggression and composure in midfield that we are so desperate for at times e.g. Fulham game.

    Beye I wasn’t totally having a dig at DW, I was wondering if he was posted as a scout to see if it was safe for MA to venture out again. Incidently about two rows in front of him I thought I spotted Lambias or someone who looked like him.
    KK Ross the remedy sounds a little painfull, ouch!

    Kinnear still isn’t the man for the job full time, don’t expect too much transfer activity in January n’all, well apart from players going out that is!! Ashley’s goin’ to bleed us dry! Newcastle = massive anticlimax!

    If the fans go against JFK it will bring the club down, Mboro is an all important game but dont expect a win or defeat, expect nothing and dont be dissapointed.

    If the fans give Kinnear full support like filling the stadium up, he will do us good!
