Win The Game Tomorrow For Our Magnificent Fans – Kinnear

Kinnear has put out the war cry today to his players, to win the game tomorrow at WBA, for Newcastle’s truly magnificent fans.


Joe Kinnear – do it for the fans tomorrow

The Dublin-born Irishman told The Newcastle Chronicle earlier today:

“People start becoming optimistic again when you win,”

“Our fans were fantastic against Sunderland, and they are the most important thing at this club.”

“They gave the team great support, and the lads received a good ovation at the end.”

“The only thing which disappointed me was the fact we did not win.” “We must start turning draws into wins,”

“We need another 14 points. Our target is 38 points, but that is achievable. We have games coming up which are winnable.”

Joe is hoping the major injury crisis, which we seem to get every season,  is now over, and that hopefully Newcastle can start turning the season around, now that we also have 3 good players in during the transfer window.

Kinnear was also upbeat about last Sunday’s second half performance, when Newcastle dominated Sunderland for large periods of the last 45 minutes:

“I thought we had our second-half performance in the derby right,”

“We finished the game very strongly. Now we have to start well against West Brom.”

The Toon Army, Newcastle’s 12th man,  will travel to West Brom tomorrow, with once again the ticket allocation (1200 tickets) having been completely sold out in Newcastle.

The game tomorrow is one of many 6 pointers that will be coming up.

    i dont know what all the fuss is about zogg leaving. imvery sorry hes gone, him and milner.

    i dont trust a single word that comes out of jokesinhere’s mouth,
    zog is just a kid that needed good man managment, a very good tallent though..

    do you not think given was thinking the same? or owen or martins.
    zog should have been in our team instead of bambi or duff take your pick.

    Considering how tight the league this year its a dangerous assumption to make that 38points will be enough. 40 points minimum should be the target

    -this game is critical but West Brom are no mugs. Brunt is a good left winger-i hope Martins is properly fit.

    Going to be:

    S Taylor….Bassong….Collo….Enrique
    R Taylor….Butt….Nolan….Duff

    Which is a real real shame cos a switch to 4-3-3 wouldnt necessarily weaken the midfield but would give their defence a real headache!

    S Taylor Collo Bass Enrique
    Smith Butt Nolan
    Lualua Ameobi Martins

    looks a far better scarier team!

    can everyone get over this n’zogbia was just a kid who needed looking after lark, he was 22 so not a kid, i used to rate him but if i sat there all the time telling everyone that my job was crap and that i wanted to leave then my boss would soon sort that and i wouldnt have a job. if your not happy then deal with it, don’t just tell anyone that will listen

    Almost everyone on here seems to think Lualua is ready for the first team, has anyone seen him play more than once or twice?? He has ‘potential’ but so do a lot of our youngsters and they’re not in the first team for a reason, they are not good enough yet! Lualua looked lost when he came on against hull in the cup game, everyone was just screaming for him to give it to charlie who looked twice the player on the night. Kazenga is not the answer to our short term problems.

    JK, With the current situasion in the league I strongly think 38 points is not enough to stay in the league maybe 44 is the best target to stay in the league
    To achieve 44 points is difficult considering we still have to play top 4 soon but not impossible
    Anyway game against WBA is on of the most important game in our club history.

    Enough with the cliches Joe, Magnificent fans my ass !
    Give it a rest, people know when they are being patronised and they see right through the Bull***t.
    If you want to patronise try to be a little more subtle in future. Eh !

    well i don’t know about you lot, but i have just done the telegraph predictions until the end of the season and i tried to be as unbiased as possable but i had newcastle finishing in 8th postion on 53 points maybe it’s just wishful thinking!!!!lol but i don’t think i will be far out with WBA,BORO AND STOKE GOING DOWN,manure win on 92 points followed by liverpool on 87 spurs in 12th with 47 points and the best bit scumberland in 13th on 46 points

    Frank pingles come sock,
    i take it you don’t like kinner?? but quite honestly the feeling you have is unjustified he won’t be here next season, but he came to nufc when nobody else would look twice at us and still won’t kinner is the best we’ve got and he’s alot better than not having a manager at all.
    come back when you’ve grown up

    the last thing we need now is to be manager less with a relagation fight on our hands let him get on with it now if the team pull there socks up and we stay then have a re-shuffel in summer when we are safe.

    If we loose tomorrow we’ll go down.

    My prediction: 1-1 after a crap 1st half and a decent 2nd half.

    A win for the fans and the useless manager would be nice.

    dont blame joe he may be viewed as ashleys puppet but whatever you think we could not do his job no matter how good we think we are, he was the only one with the balls to step upand take the job on. where was keegan speeding down the a69 like he did 1st time then with england and with fulham…….

    We are in the shi*t so get behind the team and the manager it might be the las tchance we have
