Joe Kinnear – most turmoil he’s ever had to deal with

Joe talked to the Sunday Sun today:

“Is this the most turmoil I’ve ever experienced at a club? Yes, I’d have to say so,”

“On the outside I may seem quite relaxed, but not on the inside. On the inside, it’s really, really tough.”

“Of course I’m feeling the pressure. This is the biggest game of the season. This is one game I really wanted to win.”

“It never comes easy. Whatever happens on Sunday someone will find a negative side and I’ll have to take it.”

“I can only deal with the cards I’m dealt, but people aren’t interested in what team I can put out — or that I’ve got 10 players out — only the result. Simple as that.”

“I’ve just got to take whatever comes my way.”

“I would be surprised if Sunderland didn’t think there was a great chance to do the double over Newcastle, particularly when they see the players that are out.”

“We’re without both our top goalscorers, and Shola Ameobi trained for the first time on Friday.”

“Alan Smith, Oba Martins or Shola might get 20 minutes each if they are on the bench. But there’s no chance they’ll start.”

Hey, let’s get behind Joe and the players today, it’s a hard enough job for Joe to have taken on.

And to also have the Newcastle fans on his back makes it that much more unbearable for the fighting Irishman. After all he’s on our side, after all.

A win today, and Joe will be able to have a good sleep tonight, especially if Insomnia has gone.

Comments welcome.

    Maybe 1 or 2 of the lads are ready to play and JK is going to surprise the scum with his lineup .Think if they were not expecting it and all of a sudden Martins starts with Carroll that would be good .

    TBH I don’t think Ashley would show himself at home games if he didn’t have SOMETHING up his sleeve. Why come back now of all times?

    Shola and carroll upfront would be good for the long ball tactics. Is the team sheet released yet?

    Shola starting?!

    Least he’l cause some problems, but we need pace.
    Need to limit the supply of balls into both Jones and Cisse. Crowd out midfield

    Poor, poor old Joe I do feel so sorry for him now that he has explained how tough things are. There was me just thinking that he has no motivational skills and no tactical knowledge but I forgot about the no one loves me match winning tactic.

    @ Tom1664 – I agree with you there, why would he choose this game to come back and watch. I hope you are right.

    Turmoil is fixed with spending in the transfer window.

    Not enough transfers to survive in the prem.

    Looks like a strong midfield with plenty of height and strength upfront. The 2 CB are going to have to play well though

    Shola and Caroll……not much of a strike force….i have no idea why Joe preferred to risk Ameobi so soon when we have Lovencrands.

    I wonder what Xisco has to do to get a game!! Back 4 should be pretty solid, and Nolan will be out to proove something. Hope the lads go out and do us proud.
