Kinnear – I Woke Up At 5:30 am Feeling Unwell


Joe Kinnear has described to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today what happened last Saturday, once he woke up at 5:30 am on a day that was always going to be crucial for the club.

Joe told the Evening Chronicle from the Good Hope Hospital today:

“I woke up on Saturday morning at 5.30 am feeling unwell, so our club doctor checked my blood pressure and it was high.”

“We left it for a while and then decided to go up to the hospital.” “They decided to keep me in after speaking to a specialist.”

“They’ve done some tests and we’ll get some more results today.”

“A cardiologist is going to have a look at me today and then I hope to be allowed to head home tomorrow morning.”

“I feel A-OK and hopefully I will be back at work soon.”

“I’m fighting fit and, with a bit of a break before the next game, I hope to be back for the Everton match for normal service.”

It will be interesting to see what the cardiologist finds with Joe today, but we would all hope that his heart is in good condition.

Certainly Joe’s spirits, as usual,  seem high, and will have been raised by the lads’ good performance on Saturday and the great result.

Next up will be Everton on Sunday, 22nd February, and although they are a tough side to beat, we have a good chance of capturing all 3 points on that day.

We should also be able to field a very strong side for the game, with hopefully Martins, Viduka, Smith and Carroll all available for selection.

A win is what we’ll look for, which could send us further above the relegation zone.

Comments welcome.

    Everton is a Big game for us, if we win and get three points we’ll be sitting quite comfortable, if we lose the relegation fight will go all the way to the last game. I fancy us to give them a good game especially if there’s 50 thousand geordies screaming.

    I think we should win but a draw would not be bad result either. But definitely we should not lose.

    Looks like the club got lovenkrands name wrong on the shirt! Wonder if he’ll come out and state he’ll never play for newcastle again as it was the biggest insult ever!
