Joe Kinnear Just Has To Get On With It

Joe Kinnear has to be disappointed at the result, if not the display by Newcastle United, last night, but now we just have to get on with it –  what else is there to do, once we have got over this big disappointment?


Joe Kinnear – will just get on with it at Newcastle

Joe told the Evening Chronicle today:

“We’re out of it so we have to concentrate on staying in the Premier League.”

“That’s sad because we’ve missed a great opportunity of beating Millwall and going even further.”

“Now I have to pick up the players.” “We’ve got to just concentrate on creating chances like that and converting them.”

“We’re not getting any luck. Over the two games we’ve missed a minimum of eight chances.”

“We should have had three in the first game. For them to get the goal so late when they were dead and buried is hard to take.”

Scoring has not been a problem for Newcastle this season, but it reared its ugly head last night when we should have converted some of the good chances we had, bfore Hull City got their goal.

Joe added:

“We’ve had five clear-cut chances and Hull had one smash-and-grab and scored from it.” “I think we dominated the game for long periods of time.”

“We just needed one chance to fall our way.” “Xisco missed a great chance and Michael Owen, on any other day, could have had a hat-trick.”

“Butty scratched the bar too, so we were unlucky.” “You can’t fault the players, it’s just unfortunate. I should be sitting here talking about a minimum of a 4-1 victory.

“But it’s not to be, that’s the down side.” “On the up side of things, if we continue playing like that then we’ll win more matches than we lose.”

It was disappointing, and Joe’s right that we had no luck.  The best we can do is just to put it down to some bad luck, and these things always tend to even themselves out over the season, so perhaps we’ll get a last minute winner at Ewood Park and Big Sam Allardyce on Saturday.  😀

As we said earlier this morning, things look very bleak at Newcastle now, but it’s nothing that say 3-4 good players in, and a couple of successive league wins wouldn’t put right very quickly.

The very last thing we want to see is the players feel sorry for themselves – and we just have to come out and give everything we have against Blackburn, and we think we’ll see that on Saturday.

Comments welcome.

    It pains me to say so but we’ve probably done ourselves a favour getting knocked out of the cup. Still sh*t tho.

    Welcome to Newcastle United, Joe. They’ve been doing this to me for 40 years come September.

    Wishful thinking JK Jabba Jabba Fool…How many games has he won since he arrived?

    Not many.

    Its the pre match (Blackburn) press conference today and wont be released til tomorrow via NUFCTV. well an edited down version.

    Think Lovenkrands will be announced tomorrow.

    I see Hull being busy with xfers today!!! Ironic aint it. They beat us and add to their 1st team and we got beat by second string.

    We did have the majority of the ball etc but WE NEED the end product. Goal skeep you in the prem.

    As always – on to the next game but they are running out.

    Reportedly we’re after Lucas Neill – thought Ashley wanted to reduce the wage bill?

    There was a lad on teamtalk banging on about Gomis being nailed-on to sign. I have to say I don’t rate Neill very highly and he’s a horrible get. I bet Wise is a fan of the studs down the calf, two-footed, elbowing approach to full-back play.

    Mike Ashley will deliver because he will have nothing to sell if we get relegated. He owes us £20M from last year and £20M this year and so far he has spent £3M. Just give him time. Wisey is busy working away behind the scenes and we’ll get some top names in before the end of Jan. He got us Jonas remember. its just a pity he cannot score because everything else is spot on. Mind you, none of the midfield can score a goal if their life depended on it.

    Finnan’s going to Hull!!! 1.5 million!!! Why weren’t we in there. Never thought I’d be jealous of Hull signing.

    I cant agree that scoring hasnt been a problem to us this year – the lack of ability to turn a 1 goal advantage into a 2 or 3 goal winning score when it matters has cost us a lot of points.

    We never try to rest on our laurels – we just cant score the next goal – Strikers who dont appear to care, hang your heads in shame – that means you Owen, and you Viduka, and you Ameobi.

    Would’ve like Finnan but I say his wages are quite high tbh.

    Wonder where the loan signings went to?
