If we were to guess when Joe Kinnear will return from his heart surgery, we’d hazard a guess at early April.
Joe Kinnear – already itching to be back
The surgeon will probably want Joe to stay away for two months, but trying to keep Joe away from football, and especially from Newcastle, when we are in a relegation crisis my be more difficult than usual for the surgeon.
Apparently Joe is already itching to be back, according to Chris Hughton.
Joe will watch the game on TV on Sunday and we hope the lads will give their all, and dedicate the game to their manager, and we may even get all 3 points, but Everton will be very tough.
Hughton talked of Kinnear’s surgery
“The news has been good,” “He’s made a good recovery which we expect to continue.”
“He will deal with the specialist. I’m quite sure that whatever time is given, he’ll be back.”
“I had a long conversation with him. He was in good form and sent on his best wishes.”
“He is determined to get back into football. He’s a football man and he’s champing at the bit.”
The interesting statistics for people who have heart bypass surgery, is that in 10 years, 40% are back with another severe blockage.
Joe should take heed and put together a diet and exercise program for himself, and of course the Newcastle medical staff will be only too willing to help.
There’s more important things in life than football, but it may be hard to fully explain that to Joe and get the point across, especially when he’s now at Newcastle – a club where football passion is personified. Joe just seems to love the huge challenge, and he’s obviously proud to be the Newcastle United manager.
And we’re sure his wife Bonnie has tried quite a few times already, to explain that football is not everything. 😀
Take it easy Joe – you deserve a rest and with any luck the lads will get the job done again on Sunday, so you will not need to rush back.
Maybe you can start thinking of the players we should be getting through the door in the summer, there’s quite few good ones out there, that’s for sure – Johnson, Veloso, Sakho, Gomez and Mbia – just to mention a few.
