Kinnear In Control – Cabaye Staying – Mediocre Players Leaving


We know Newcastle fans have had a very bad shock when Joe Kinnear was appointed as our new Director of Football at Newcastle, which happened about 24 hours ago, but maybe there are just one or two positive things about Joe’s arrival – maybe – possibly? 😀

yohan cabaye i can't hear you

Yohan Cabaye – stop listening for that phone call from Monaco
You’re going nowhere – official – Joe Kinnear – June 17, 2013


Joe’s a real character, and he at least will ensure for Newcastle fans there will never be a dull moment for the next three years – which is how long his new contract lasts on Tyneside.

And Joe is already putting out all kinds of messages – and there are have been a lot of them about Joe in the last 24 hours – Joe likes talking.

The latest headlines is that he is telling Yohan Cabaye to forget about joining Monaco, because he is staying at Newcastle.

This is what Joe told the Evening Chronicle today, when asked about Cabaye possibly moving to Monaco:

“He will stay. We’ve got him under contract and we want to keep all of our top players here. We don’t feel we have to sell our top stars.” “The only players we will move on are the ones that are coming up short. “

“You can’t have that at a massive football club like this.” “We will have to move them on. We can’t have mediocre players at Newcastle United. But we won’t be selling our best players.”

We’ve got to say we like the way he always talks about Newcastle being so great – such a massive club – Joe really believes that – and that’s to his credit – another positive?

And if you are to believe Joe, then Alan Pardew is simply delighted to have such a great football man working alongside him – well that’s the world according to Joe.

And do you remember what Joe said in July of 2009 when we had been relegated – yes that’s right – it would never have happened if he had remained the Newcastle manager.

This is what Kinnear told the Irish edition of the Sunday Times on July 16, 2009 – as we have looked back on some of his previous comments (there’s lot of them):

“I got 20 points from 19 games,” “Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer, the Messiahs, got nine points between them.” “When I went into hospital, we were 13th with 13 games left.” “Everything was going in our favor.”

“All the other clubs were getting beat, and we were on a great run. It was looking an absolute doddle.” “I said to Mike, ‘let me come back’, but he said, ‘no, the club doctor spoke to the specialist, and it was too dangerous.”

“What disappointed me most was that, irrespective of my health, I could have been a figurehead, so Alan could have bounced things off me.” “I would have been able to help and guide him.” “Alan has been a phenomenal player, but he’s never been in management or coaching.”

Keegan managed for the first three games of the relegation season and got four points – just before the earthquake with a certain Director of Football called Dennis Wise – and Kevin left in early September, 2008.

Alan Shearer was manager for the last eight games of the season and got 5 points – so hence our two Messiahs got 9 points between them from 11 games – not as good as Joe – who says he got 20 points from 19 games.

You know, we never realized Joe was that good – but he says it would have been a doddle for him to have avoided relegation – it was so easy – a cake walk for him.

Some of the positive things with Joe – apart from there never being a dull moment – is that the players at Newcastle liked him – he’s a football man – and we think he really does want to make Newcastle into a top team – and he does have some good football knowledge.

But it’s still 88% in our poll who don’t want him as the Director of Football, with close to 3500 readers having already voted.

Do You Want Joe Kinnear As Newcastle's Director Of Football?

We were trying to put a little positive spin on Joe’s appointment in this article – it was worth a try wasn’t it – well maybe not. 😀

    I said that we wouldn’t have got relegated if Kinnear wasn’t ill in 2009. We should’ve appointed a better manager though at the time.

    Does he actually think we’d reject a big offer for Cabs when it seems he’s already looking to get out, and does he see himself the man to convince cabaye things are going to change this season
    NOT A CHANCE!

    well from what I have been reading on this blog today even things as stupid as this can still provide usful things too.
    the useful things with this kinear are
    1 fans over rate Newcastle far to much just because of our huge fan base but who else is their that is near by to support .
    2.some of you don’t have a clue about how chances are made and just think that if a team hoofs it forward then the manager will do hoofball. hoofball is done when we have got no fu<king decent wingers the only wingers we have are HBA and marvo who both show off going down the middle making it too easy to get closed down. so when the defenders see that they probably start to hoof it to cisse as he may still be on side. a tall striker is used to control the ball and head the ball from crosses and set pieces NEWCASTLE'S LAST GOAL FROM A CORNER WAS AGAIN WOLVES. 2 SEASONS AGO
    3.transfers these days loyalty has gone from football all that most players care about is themselves did you ready the story about the sunderland player lying in lots of £50 notes have you heard all the stories linking suaez away from Liverpool despite the backing even danny rose was accusing England fans of expecting too much from the U21.
    4. have you ever noticed that british players are much more expensive because one thing's sure they cost much more than foreigners which is why so few are now in teams so stop talking bullshit saying that we will be buying british players because we won't.

    also did Liverpool ever have an empty stadium while tom hicks and George gillett were getting them in such a awful state.
    and did Chelsea do one last year with rafa and have manure did it with the glazers.

    On the assumption that nothing worse can happen, maybe its time to dry our collective tears and (sigh..) get on with it. Its happening.

    It will be the most impressive turnaround in history if it works though. I would be absolutely amazed. 😐

    So we have an owner who know’s nothing about football, a chairman who know’s even less, who together came up with the master stroke of employing Alan Pardew…………..and just when you think that they couldn’t kick us in the ball’s any harder they go out and employ Joe Kinnear as Director of Football!!!!!!!!!!!

    We are now officially a laughing stock, a sick little joke that I am growing really tired of

    Why does MA think its ok to throw JFK a man with heart problems into the cauldron that is NUFC my only explanation is that Joe didnt pay him for a pair of lonsdale trainers when he was manager.

    I’m sorry but I simply can’t agree that JFK is a footballing man, there is absolutely no proof of this!
    He ‘s already failed in a DOF football role TWICE!! Most disturbingly at Luton when appointed as DOF his first order of business was to demote the manager and appoint himself

    This is a truly horrific appointment

    You’ve used remy as an example of dekka’s incompetence
    Dekka has been here since 2008 so is responsible for players such as Elliot colo debuchy mbiwa colo santon haidara perch tiote bigi Anita cabs benny Marv gouff ba cisse sissoko and several squad players
    Not a bad haul tbf

    I’ve stated numerous times I’d love to see dekka replaced but to see kinnear appointed as our “footballing man” is an absolute disgrace

    The man is a footballing dinosaur who should of stayed extinct from the game, what possible contacts could he possibly have in the modern game left from his p1ss poor management career??

    He boasts he can spot a talented player, he boasts he’s a great tactician
    There is absolutely nothing to back these claims up
    The man is full of the brown stuff and always has been, he’s spouted more lies in time at NUFC than I care to remember
    He’s an absolute embarrassment and all Ashley has done has invited intense media critiscm by appointing the medias most hated toon manager in recent times
    He’s a running joke within the game, you only have to look at the reaction from pundits and ex players, no one in there right mind would put someone held in such low regard in the footballing world in charge of player recruitment

    don’t go to SJP one or to games. show them what you people really think. MA reacts only if his pocket is in pain. watch games on TV. otherwise bad thinks is only we can expect. If this is all true, I wont watch our games, just check the result. One more season with AP, Jonas, players out of position…. no thanks

    We all know that when Pardew is eventually sacked JFK is his ready made replacement, no compensation, no big wages and no transfer budget as he’s already in charge of signing players.

    Kinnear fell out with nzogbia but so did everyone and he got kevin nolan in which isnt too bad.

    But my question is has it really got an eye for the modern footballer? For example, one of our best technical and creative players is marveuax, has kinnear got the eye to notice is or will he think french player without real pace or power, lets sell him.

    Time will tell.

    We have to get rid of Cabaye if a £20m plus offer comes along. It’s a way forward. We can get Remy, Alderweireld and Boudebouz in for £20m.

    Having a moan about Joe’s one option that’ll achieve nowt
    whereas another is to accept that it’s done, happened and all the moans in the world ain’t gonna change things.

    We don’t know what’s to be and having panned Pardew Joe might actually bring an improvement in our fortunes. We can only wait and see what happens and then judge!

    Are we to accept the BS that Ashley flings at us time and time again?

    Why do we suffer these indignities? We have a right not just to boycott, but to protest.

    Look at Everton. Their board were proposing a small change to their badge and the Everton fans protested, got up in arms and forced them to back down and issue an apology.

    It is not an affront to the club to protest. If we protest it is not because we want to shame our club, it’s because we want to save it. Yes, let’s cancel STs, yes let’s stop buying merchandise, but will these steps force the issue in the eyes of the media? No, and I think this is what we need to do.

    I’m not going to stand for it any more. JFK? What a bloody joke, sad thing is, I’m not laughing.
