If we are to believe press reports coming in, then Joe Kinnear will today be confirmed as Newcastle’s new Director of Football, and Newcastle have handled this thing very badly – although maybe it was just Joe who simply couldn’t keep quiet about it.
Joe Kinnear – when appointed interim manager in 2008
Just how he will be able to keep secret, the players Newcastle will be going after, in his new role as Director of Football – we have no idea.
Press Association Sport is reporting the announcement will be made today, and we suppose it can come at any time – and it’s such a shame that Joe has been blathering about everything these last 36 hours – and he’s managed to lose almost all credibility with Newcastle fans.
What we hope Joe does is to give an intelligent interview on nufcTV – but only talk about what his job will be, and how he will work closely with current manager Alan Pardew and Chief Scout Graham Carr for the betterment of the team.
Behind the scenes, we would expect him to be told to cut out the nonsense that’s been coming out of his mouth since Sunday evening, when he told the world he was Newcastle’s new Director of Football and Newcastle fans have been in complete and utter shock ever since.
We didn’t deserve this – we don’t deserve Joe.
