Mike Ashley Must Sort Out This Kinnear Nonsense Quickly


Joe Kinnear has always gone against the local press in Newcastle, and he did the same thing yesterday when he gave an interview for about 14 minutes with talkSport, in which he continually made misstatements about his past, and managed to mispronounce the names of Derek Llambias (Lambeeze), Yohan Cabaye (Cababs), Ben Arfa (Ben Afra), Jonas Gutierrez (Gueterizzi) and Shola Ameobi (Shola Amemobi).

Joe Kinnear – embarrassing Newcastle United

And we thought it was bad when he talked about a certain Charles Insomnia in January of 2009.

And Joe probably made a huge mistake by  criticizing the Newcastle fans, who seem already dead against him becoming the Newcastle Director of Football, which by the way has still not been announced by Newcastle – only by Joe.

This is what Joe said towards the end of his interview yesterday about the Newcastle fans.

“To all the fans who don’t agree with this decision, shall I bring Llambeeze back in?. What do you want? What do they want?”

“I heard a silly comment of ‘what can I attract?’ I can open the door to any manager in the world, anyone, that’s the difference. I’ve spent my whole life talking to Alex Ferguson, week in, week out, what would you do?”

“I can pick the phone up at any time of the day and speak to Arsene Wenger, any manager in the league. In all the divisions.”

“I don’t know what angle they’ve got, if they want to sit down and argue with me… Some are talking out of their backsides, a load of tosh. I’m not accepting it, as simple as that. I have certainly got more intelligence than them, that’s a fact.”

Newcastle fans criticize their manager often, that’s part of the heritage at Newcastle, it’s part of the manager’s job on Tyneside, and Alan Pardew is finding out you have to be able to take the severe criticism when things don’t go well.

But at heart Newcastle fans  love their club, they love Newcastle United – and we have probably hugely under-stated that.

And one thing they don’t want to see is a person embarrassing the football club, and unfortunately that’s just exactly what Joe Kinnear has been doing over the last 36 hours.

Joe complains about being attacked by the press, but in yesterday’s interview he has given them even more ammunition against him, and it’s on the same level as his first interview as Newcastle’s interim manager back in September, 2008, when his tirade against Simon Bird of the Daily Mirror, contained the F word 52 times.

Mike Ashley must come in and sort this thing out quickly today, before it causes even more embarrassment and damage to Newcastle United Football Club.

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

    Lesh,

    This surely has to be true though that he is coming in and just an absolute cock-up by NUFC.

    Even the media are wondering if Joe has had some sort of breakdown.

    It’s a disgrace like, worst PR disaster in history haha. Dear me.

    NUFC have to say something ASAP.

    I honestly don’t think this is true guys. NUFC has said nothing about his appointment. His contradictions, miss pronunciations and failure to recall past events correctly strikes me as somebody who is ill. I think NUFC are staying quiet until they figure out a way to deal with the situations sensitively. The poor bloke sounds like the heart attacks he had did a bit of damage.

    Steven Traylor has apparently come out and said he welcomes joe ‘kin ear back to the club, so could unfortunately be true. This is a disaster. I have truly lost all faith and am on the brink of just jacking it all in as far as supporting the club until Cashley is gone.

    Joe either has dementia or is a blatant lier which means he is not fit for purpose. Our new DoF is a complete Jerk.

    Talksport are saying that because jfk told them. Its totally unsupported. Talksport put all sorts out as exclusive facts once anyone or their dog says it.

    Ok, a rare comment from me. But a daily reader!

    So I’ve put off listening to JFK on talksport until just now after seeing comments on here and sky sports news laughing about it in as many ways they could think of.

    Although my first thoughts of his impending appointment was omfg. I think this is being misinterpreted. Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of cringeworthy stuff in there but if you strip it down I think he’s making his point. Just phenomenally badly!

    I think joe has thrust himself it seems into an environment where he is completely useless. The wonderful world of media/pr.

    I think what Joe is trying to explain is that as far as being a middleman in transfers ( between pards and cashley) he is better skilled than llambarse. He’s a football man, he can talk manager to manager he’s kinda been there done that albeit on a lesser lower scale. And with that I guess I agree with him. He is more experienced, he can talk footy better and man to man he probably has the gift of the gab.

    Where it really falls down is joes inability to dance the dance with the press. It’s one of the things he messed up as manager and it still seems his biggest weakness. If you take this interview as I see it he’s just trying to put his point across very badly!

    Just my thoughts.

    I’ll prepare for the stoning from you guys now! Wish me luck!

    If I was a player or players representative and saw all this going down I’d think stay well away. I feel for Cababs because he has put his neck on the line in selling us to all the French players. They must now be thinking he’s a total tool.

    Ferglar,

    You could very well be right mate.

    It’s the consistency of his cock ups, disrepect and no mention from NUFC which is worrying and has everyone concerned about his mental health.

    I know it has been suggested already but I really am starting to believe that JFK has had some sort of mental break-down or actually dreamt his contract with NUFC.

    IF ashley has really appointed kinnear all he had to say to him was dont talk to the tv or the press without the help of the nufc press office instead kinnear seems to gone off like a loose cannon lying and exaggeration seems to be his trade mark.other clubs have appointed dof without all this fuss.i do believe that ashley is having a private game seeing how far he can push the geordies,seeing what it takes to alienate fans from their club.other clubs treat their fans with respect and most owners would love the support geordies give their team

    if newcastle release a press statement to confirm all this then its proved ashley has finally lost his marbles, kinnear shouldnt be anywhere near the club after his latest fan outburst insulting us which will cause a lot of problems for him especially when theres 52,000 screaming geordies pointing the finger at him what will he do then or will it cause more problems for his heart 😉 our club is run by mighty mouse ( ashley) penfold ( lambeeese 🙂 tactless manager whos better then anyone else pardew and not to mention heart attack to happen kinnear what a bloody mess where in due to these lot

    Was there anyone on here who wanted PArdew out and mentioned JFK after the car crash of last season ?
    Maybe Joe has been reading the blog. He’s delusional. Just like us mwah,ha ha

    Cannot wait to see what joe can bring in.he had wilblydon in the top 6 of the epl with such low resources.wimblydon shouldnt have even been in the premierleauge but joe managed them well and thats why he ended up winning the manager of the year award at wimblydon.

    Joe is 100 percent correct in that we need a stricker.hope he can bring one in on the cheap.with carr and joe we will be able to look at alot of players.

    Now we just gitta get the wily fox back to what he does best and we have a great trifecta of experience and expertise and for once HONESTY which is grateful to me
