Push is coming to shove right now and we just don’t think it will be possible to sell the Newcastle club this summer.
Joe Kinnear – will he be back as manager soon?
So hopefully Mike Ashley will turn his attention to appointing a full time manager, while there is still time left for him to build the squad, before time completely runs out.
The bet has to be Mike will again turn to Joe Kinnear, since the coaching staff of Chris Hughtion and Colin Calderwood have worked with Joe before, and he is the obvious choice, even though The Times is suggesting this morning that will not happen.
However, the BBC is reporting that Joe has said he has been offered a two year contract by Mike Ashley, to come in and attempt to rescue the club from the terrible mess it is now in.
If that news is true we would expect Joe to be announced fairly quickly, and possibly before Saturday’s game at WBA.
This will be another kick up the behind for Alan Shearer from Mike, but we don’t expect Mike to appoint Alan, after waiting 10 weeks and keeping him in the dark about everything going on with the Newcastle sale.
This is an awful way to run a football club, and the Newcastle club have suffered enormously because of Mike’s total incompetence during the summer.
However, we have nothing against Joe Kinnear personally, other than he’s not the greatest manager in the world.
After all, the man did nearly kill himself in the Newcastle cause earlier this year, and he’s an honest worker and only trying to do his very best for the club.
It’s hard to fault him for that.
But with 88% of our readers wanting Shearer in as the new manager, we have to think the appointment will not be well received by the Newcastle faithful.
If the appointment happens that is, as nothing is certain at the Newcastle club any more.
