Kinnear To Sunderland ? – Not Likely!


There is news in the Sunday Express today that Joe Kinnear may be interested in taking the Sunderland job, if he was offered it.

Joe Kinnear – interested in Sunderland job?

But we don’t think that will ever happen, although you cannot blame Joe for trying to secure a long term deal for himself, and it seems he would just love staying in the North-East.

He eats and breathes football and he’s in the right company at Newcastle, where most fans are exactly the same, and we think he must like living in the area.

And Sunderland fans are passionate too, much more so than in his native south. When you look at the two top North East clubs, Newcastle and Sunderland are very similar, with Newcastle obviously the bigger and better one.   😀

But as we’ve said before we’d like Sunderland to be successful, because it’s great for the North East area and actually good for Newcastle too, because we can then beat them twice a season, as long as they stay in the Premier League.

But Joe Kinnear is well aware that his days at St. James’ Park could be quickly ended if the club is sold anytime from now until the summer.

He also is not on a very lucrative deal at Newcastle, and could get a better and longer deal somewhere else, especially because he has really proved he is a solid and knowledgeable manager, who can operate a club both on and off the field.

He has been the glue that’s keeping Newcastle United together right now, as it seems like all our four players will sign their new contracts.

We should never forget what a great job Joe Kinnear has done, and is doing at Newcastle, whatever happens to him long term. He came in when the club was on its knees and he’s revived both the players and the fans, and he can’t talk enough about how gerat the clubs and its fans are. When he first came he lifted the whole place about waxing lyrical about The Newcastle United Football Club, and then blasted Simon Bird of The Daily Mirror.

We all realized we were a great club, just in a lot of difficulty.

Joe told the Sunday Express today:

“Mike has already mentioned the possibility of staying on if the club is not sold. He said I’m here as long as he was here.”

“We’ve spoken about the future and he said, ‘If I can’t sell we have to start talking about next year’.”

“So I said, ‘We’ll start talking about bringing in players and looking forward to next season with a stronger squad’, and he’s pretty optimistic.”

There’s a possibility that Mike may not be able to sell the club, and if Joe keeps improving the side, and bringing in good new players, the fans will want Joe to stay, and maybe will bury the hatchet with Mike Ashley, although we’re not sure that can happen.

But we still remember what happened to Glenn Roeder, who had a terrific record in the 2005-2006 season after he took over from Graeme Souness in February, and won six of our last seven games, but then wasn’t too good the next season, and was sacked.

We hope this isn’t a flash in the pan from Joe, although it doesn’t seem to be.

If only Mike Ashley would come out and say something to Newcastle fans, even if it’s just what he tells the press, after all we are human.

Yes – we know, that will surprise a lot of people.  😀

A win against Spurs today and we’ll be flying high, that’s for sure.

Howay The Lads!!

    The important thing is for Uncle Joe to take us to a win over Spurs today. We can get up to 9th or 10th depending on goal difference. As for press reporting of Joe and the mackems – well, how many poseur pricks are prancing around in the putrid press these days? Tell them where to go Joe!! Toon 4 Spuds 1.

    We have to think about the possibility, that MA never wanted to sell the club really…just wait until snow falls and washes away all the bad things.

    I personally would be happy with that, in fact more than happy! As long as MA has someone in full control who knows football we are in good shape, I think! MA is a special owner and this is not really usual today. We need stability and if JFK can offer it to us, so it be! I’m happy with that!

    Ed,you say in your article that you hope Joe Kinnear isn’t just a flash in the pan,well I think that he is.He is riding on the wave of being a new manager,and that lifts every team for a while,but Joe is a street fighter who will get his team out of a tight situation in the short term but he can’t see the big picture and we need a manager who can,someone like a Bobby Robson who will get us flying again!

    Joe Aussie – it’s always a worry – and that’s probably what’s happening at Sunderland too – seems like the players are upbeat because Keane left.

    Papers eh? All has calmed down at NUFC and they dont have much to write about so they decide to stir up. The press are such Tossers! southern shandy drinking nitwits who dont have a scooby doo about the football up here! even the so called geordie journo’s who are down south, I saw this TWAT on sky this morning saying “Oh yes Michael Owen made his mind up to leave Newcastle a long time ago BLAH BLAH BLAH” how do you know prick? were you havin a pint with him & he told you? P**S off!!! We should have a paper Based in the North East which gives you the proper gen on the whats happening with the north east clubs! And before the smartass’s start NO not the Chonicle coz it’s BOT! Alan Oliver couldn’t sniff out a transfer if he was at the table when terms were being discussed! Bring on a paper by the north east for the north east with good sports writers in it please! rant over.

    Same ‘new manager’ phenomenon at Blackburn. Hard to explain it without saying that these players aren’t a bunch of overpaid charlatans as well.
    But Joe is getting better results as time goes on. Let’s worry how Kinnear does in the Champions’ League when we reach that point. He is a self-confessed total football nut, and seems a decent, straight-talking bloke as well. I’ll settle for that if the players are happy with him.
