Joe Kinnear – feeling unwell – in hospital

Joe  Kinnear is in hospital and will now miss Newcastle United’s away game at West Brom today.

A club statement said that Kinnear was “unwell” going into Newcastle’s crucial clash this afternoon wuth the team that are bottom of the league.

An NUFC spokesman said:

“On Saturday morning Joe Kinnear reported feeling unwell ahead of the game at West Brom.”

“After being examined by the club’s medical staff Joe was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure where he remains under observation.”

“Joe will miss the game with Chris Hughton taking charge.”

As we have said many times, Joe looked terrible last week on the sidelines against Sunderland.

There’s no doubt that Joe is giving everything he has (and probably more) to the Newcastle cause,  as he battles to save the club from relegation.

But this could well raise doubts about his overall health, and the uncertainty of his health being up to the rigors of managing Newcastle, which is hardly easy.

Joe has a heart attack on the sidelines 10 years ago at a Wimbledon game, and was forced to take time off.

We wish Joe all the very best.

Right lads, let’s win this game for Joe, and that will make him feel a lot better.

Comments welcome.

    I know not everyone thinks he’s a good manager but I’m sure we all wish him a speedy recovery.

    First of all, a get-well-fast wish to Joe! Nothing is more important than health, and it is sad to see a person being taken away the chance to do what he does best for the second time after such a lengthly pause.

    I have made it clear I wouldn’t want to see Kinnear in charge beyond this season, but even his hardest critics must admit we need him until this one is over. Another injury, another blow for our beloved club 🙁

    Hughton is too precautious and obviously doesn’t have the authority to motivate the players. Now, don’t get me wrong, this isn’t necessarily negative, but it makes it less possible to get three points today – and we need them badly.

    batty regardless of that selling our best players who was always comitted to us isn’t really what a club like ours should be doing. just like selling shearer to sunderland if sunderland was owned by a sheikh
