Kinnear Tells Players Not To Hold Back Against WBA


Joe Kinnear, before he was taken to hospital after feeling unwell earlier today, has told his players on a number of yellow cards, not to hold back in today’s game against bottom of the league WBA.

Joe Kinnear – don’t hold back

Steven Taylor has 4 yellow cards, and Fabricio Coloccini has 3 yellow cards, although he is said to be doubtful to play this afternoon, through injury.

Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle early this morning:

“I don’t want to lose any more players, but I’m not going to rein anyone in.”“That wouldn’t be my style.”

“Injuries and suspensions haven’t helped us, and I don’t like to lose any of my players.”

“But they can’t change the way they play.”

“Half my team’s been on the treatment table, half the time I’ve been here, but I’m still delighted we’re in the position we’re in.”

Meanwhile, Kinnear is looking forward to giving new boy Ryan Taylor a good run in the side, after the Liverpool-born player was finally signed last Monday.

Kinnear said:

“Ryan is a kid that we know what he can do.” “We know what he’s all about.”

“He’s great at set plays and he is a quality performer on the ball. He can see a pass.”

“There are plenty of things to be to be positive about at the moment.”

The earlier news today about Joe being taken to hospital will have alarms bells going off at the club.

The most important thing is that Joe is OK, and we hope it’s nothing serious.  But we have to think, whatever it is, that it’s been caused by the unimaginable stress he’s been under at Newcastle recently.

Joe is the type of guy who cannot help himself, and he will work day and night, regardless of his health – but that’s hardly good for the man.

Chris Hughton is in charge of the side today, but as we all know, in the 5 games he has been in charge at Newcastle, we’ve lost every one of them.  But it has to be a good chance to change that record.

Another loss today though, and the alarm bells will going off on several fronts at the club.

Comments welcome.

    we shouldn’t lose this game, but it does highlight the fact that jk although i thank him for coming to help us out, I don’t think he is upto the job long term, but i’m sure he might realise that or someone in his family will too and talk him out of staying after the summer.

    okay can someone sacrifice some virgins or summat – we have to get this curse lifted man, hughton can’t manage or motivate, this was gonna be a tough game to win in the first place, with hughton in charge it’s almost impossible 🙁

    …surely the fact that we didn’t get 3 points against the unwashed, the return of Viduka, Martins and Smith, and the fact that wor boss has just gone into hospital should be enough motivation for the lads today in this 6 pointer. Here’s hoping…..

    I doubt Colo will play today. I’m hoping the line-up will be:

    Harper
    R Taylor—S Taylor—Bassong—Enrique
    Lovenkrands—Nolan—Smith—Duff
    Viduka—Martins

    HAWAY THE LADS!

    1 – 3

    guess it will be Ameobi and Smith in front? Or Løvenkrands and Ameobi with R.Taylor as right wing instead of right back and then S.Taylor at right back.

    fak man city fakers chanting given’s name. they should be chanting the sheikhs name.

    i hope they get relegated.

    what appalls me is the fact that the team we fielded out against sunderland didn’t look up for it in the first half. why do they always need a half time team talk to get fired up?

    against sunderland for fak’s sake. joe kinnear doesn’t have to say anything just to fire them up.

    As soon as Given leaves Newcastle, the press are so eager to big him up and make him out to be the best keeper in the league. They always do this when good players leave us, bigot c*nts.
