Joe Kinnear will have a series of important tests next Monday, and it appears the Newcastle manager is recoveriong nicely, and has talked to the Evening Chronicle today.

Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle today:
“I’m just desperate to be back and do what I can for Newcastle.” “I still think we have enough quality players to see us through this.”
“Obviously I look forward to next season, and I want to say that what’s happening now will never happen again.”
“Whatever happens, I will have an input. It’s as simple as that.” “If I can’t do certain things, I will be speaking to staff and players at the club and working at the training ground during the week.”
“I’ll still have a major say to the players too. We’ll work it that way.”
Good words from Joe, and we have to say we think the situation that Joe will return to at newcastle is tailor-made for him.
While at Wimbledon in the 1990s, his team were never given much of a chance, but they fought like tigers, and got some impressive results too, and Joe had very little money to spend.
We need a few tigers in the Newcastle team right now, and we just hope Joe is fit enough to resume his duties at Newcastle as soon as possible. Hopefully he’ll be able to return on a part-time basis next week.
But if he does return, we know it’s a mountain of a job, but he knows that too, and no doubt will be ready. Certainly his work ethic is unquestionable, as he is simply the consummate workaholic, although that may not be good for his health.
Good words also from Joe, to say this stuff at Newcastle will never happen again, and for Joe’s sake we hope he gets the chance to manage Newcastle in the Premier league next season.
If Joe is still around by then and Newcastle survive, watch out for one of the most interesting transfer seasons for a many years on Tyneside.
It will be Mike Ashley’s last chance to show he really wants to rebuild our club – and he’s hardly shown that this season, in fact he’s shown the exact opposite.
