We have to think that all the talk about a new manager at Newcastle is more than a little disrespectful to Joe Kinnear, and it’s no wonder Joe wants to return to Newcastle as soon as possible.
Steve Bruce – link to Newcastle is disrespectful to Joe Kinenar
The speculation is in case Joe cannot go on because of ill health, but Joe has never shown ever during his time at Newcastle, that he doesn’t want the Newcastle manager job, which came right out of the blue and has been a golden opportunity for him.
Let’s be honest he’s hardly stopped talking about how great he thinks the Newcastle club is. The last thing Newcastle need right now is yet another manager.
What we need is a period of stability where one manager brings in the players he wants, and builds the team his way. Since Bobby Robson left in September 2004, we’ve had Souness, Roeder, Allardyce, Keegan and now Kinnear, and we are still a bottom half of the league team.
We’ve shown to anybody who will take a look, that multiple managers just don’t work, but it seems that some fans continually want to see change. Wigan manager Steve Bruce hit the nail on the head today when he was asked about being linked witt the Newcastle job.
Steve Bruce said today:
“I’m going to Newcastle am I? Well, it’s news to me and I think it’s a little bit disrespectful when their manager is going through what he’s going through right now.”
In fact we have sunk so low as a team in the last two or three seasons, that a top half finish and possibly getting into a top eight or a top six position is the next step.
Joe Kinnear can do that job in the next couple of years, and can lay the foundations for some future success at the club. What he needs is time – and maybe even a little patience, and two years is a good stretch for him to show what he can do.
There’s no reason why Joe cannot come back better than ever as far as his health goes. The only worry is that he doesn’t look after himself and his health, and that could have him in a similar situation in a few years time unless he alters his diet and gets a lot more exercise.
He also needs to keep check on his vital signs for his heart health, such as cholesterol and triglycerides levels, and his blood pressure, and if he does that he should be just fine.
He’s also look a lot better than he did in his last game in charge against Sunderland, where he looked just terrible, if the truth be told.
