Joe Kinnear is still working on some transfer targets and w eknow an approach has openly been made for John Arne Riise, but this morning it appears like joe has also been after a couple of other players who would go straight into the first team.
Joe Kinnear – has players lined up for January
Joe Kinnear talked this morning to the Newcastle journal about the two potential players:
“Discussions will have to be had on those players and will go out nearer the time because so much can change. It very much depends on injuries and the likes of Mark and Alan coming back into the team,”
“Those guys (Mark and Alan) are really experienced players who lift the rest of the lads just by being around. They are good quality players with real experience and that’s the kind of thing that we need.”
As we reported yesterday Newcastle have sold out their allocation of almost 4,000 tickets at Middlesbrough, and Kinnear is more than aware of the terrific support the team gets on the road, and he is determined that the lads have to perform tomorrow, as he continued:
“It really is wonderful support, the enthusiasm is incredible. It’s important that we don’t serve up any half measures when we’ve got that kind of backing.”
There’s not much to be said about the game tomorrow at Middlesbrough – other than three points.
