There is some good news being reported by The Evening Chronicle today, regarding Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear.
Joe Kinnear – could leave hospital next Monday
Joe Kinnear could be discharged from hospital this coming Monday, after recovering well from his triple heart bypass operation.
Joe has now been taken out of intensive care and is in his own room in the hospital, and it must now be only a matter of days now before he is released from hospital.
Certainly the danger time is over, and he has had no infection so things are looking good.
Caretaker boss Chris Hughton said today:
“I expect to hear from him soon. But we appreciate where he is at the moment.”
When he recuperates at home, we’re not sure whether that will be in London or in Newcastle, where he is renting a house near Jesmond Dene, but it would seem better that he recovers down south, away from the turmoil at Newcastle.
Anyway, once he’s up and about watch for Joe to try to get back to Newcastle before two months is even near being up.
And come to think of it, if he is released on Monday it would be a nice present for the lads to register a win for Joe on Sunday afternoon against Everton. We have to be in with a decent chance of all 3 points on Sunday, that’s for sure.
In a couple more weeks, it will be hard to keep the man away from the Newcastle training pitch.
