Joe Kinnear has come out and called a spade a spade.
Charles N’Zogbia – a big baby – but we already knew that
Joe talked about N’Zogbia yesterday and said he had told him to his face he was a big baby:
“I just think Charles needs to grow up. He’s a big baby — and I’ve told him that to his face,”
“He says some of the most ridiculous things,” “I don’t think he understands what he’s saying half the time.
“He needs to focus on his football, not all the outside things that go with it that twist his head.”
Good advice from Joe, who’s of course been through the mill as a successful player – but let’s not overdo it, well at least not until Steve Bruce signs the lad.
Steve is no fool, and we don’t want to bad mouth the lad too much – well at least not right now. 😀
But he is a big baby, and Charles has embarrassed himself as he pronounced that Wigan had bigger ambitions than Newcastle.
We refuse to criticize Wigan, because it’s a smashing little club, with a great Chairman and a very good Geordie manager, and the club has made great strides since local millionaire David Whelan purchased the club in 1995.
But few would argue it has the history or legacy of Newcastle United – except Charles of course.
But we want men to fight the Newcastle cause against relegation, not babies, so we’ll be quite happy to see Charles move on from the Tyneside club, which by the way gave him his big chance in the Premier League.
With our two players leaving, Given and N’Zogbia, there couldn’t be much more of a difference between the character and professionalism of the two players – as Given is the model of professionalism.
