We’re Looking For A Win At Wigan – Kinnear

Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear is determined to have Newcastle keep up their good run of 6 games without defeat, through the end of the year, at the very least.


Joe Kinnear – we need to keep up our good streak

Tomorrow’s game against Wigan Athletic is one the lads can win if they maintain their good form of late, and since we’ve never won at the JJB Stadium, and Wigan pinched a point in the 90 minutes a few weeks back, which cost us 2 points down the drain, we need to go all out for the win tomorrow.

Kinnear told nufcTV.

“We have to remain undefeated, that is what I’ll be telling the players,” “It’s important to keep this run going because while that is happening we are picking up points.”

“We have got ourselves into a great position whereby we are now just four or five points from Europe.” “But we are also four or five points from the relegation zone still so that is why we need to keep the run going.”

“Wigan will be a very tough game but it’s one we will be looking to win.” “They, like Spurs were, are on the same amount of points so that makes it doubly important to not get beat.”

“After that we’ve got Liverpool when, if we beat Wigan, the place will be bouncing.” “But it’s one game at a time and I’m very confident we’ll get something on Boxing Day at Wigan.”

One of the things we really like about Joe Kinnear is how so down to earth he is, and he doesn’t get carried away with either our successes or disappointments – unlike a certain blog author.   😀

From the many interviews he gave yesterday, Joe seems determined to do his very best for Newcastle United through the end of the season, and it wouldn’t surprise us if he knows exactly how many games we have left.

He’s assuming that’s all he’s got at Newcastle, and if he leaves in the summer, he’s determined to walk away with his head held high.  That’s a great attitude the Newcastle manager is taking, and it’s hard to fault Joe on his approach to the manager job at Newcastle, in such very difficult circumstances.

He’s brought the club and the fans together, although there’s still a long long way to go.  Joe and the players will take every game as it comes, and try to get all 3 points in every match.

Tomorrow’s game will not be easy, but if we can manage a win, then the City of Newcastle will be buzzing, and  we’ll have a full house on Sunday against top of the table Liverpool, and St. James’ Park will be rocking.

Rock on.

    It will be very hard to break Wigan down and we’ve all seen what they did to Hull at the JJB..

    However I’m confident and believe the lads can take all 3 points 🙂

    Agreed Ed, take the day off and enjoy it 🙂

    ED you just never stop working do you? lol You’re a legend as for JK he is soon becoming one. If he wins a cup for us then he definitely will be a legend. This guy is impressing me with each passing day. His comments, his approach to games, his no-nonsense attitude which I love as he lets us know how everything is going without the bullsh*t.

    Now go on Ed enjoy your Chrsitmas with your family..MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and everyone !! 😀

    I can picture it now. Ed’s family gathered around the fire, opening presents, etc. and wondering where Ed is…and he’s back on the computer scouring football sites for transfer rumors. Enjoy the day Ed…but your eforts are always appreciated.
