Newcastle Announce Joe Kinnear – Pardew Reports To Joe


Well it’s now true – Joe Kinnear is the new Director of Football at Newcastle.

This is the announcement Newcastle have just put out:

“Newcastle United have appointed Joe Kinnear as the Club’s new Director of Football on a three-year deal.”

“Joe will report directly to the club’s Board as the senior executive in charge of all football-related matters. Chief scout Graham Carr and manager Alan Pardew will report into Joe.”

“Managing Director Derek Llambias said: “The board are pleased to welcome Joe back to the club. Joe has many years of experience working within the game, and this experience will be of great benefit to the Club in achieving our objectives over the coming seasons.”

“Joe Kinnear first arrived at United in September 2008, initially as Interim Manager, following the departure of Kevin Keegan.”

“Joe had previously had a successful seven-year management spell with Wimbledon and as a player enjoyed a fine ten-year career with Tottenham, during which time he won 26 Republic of Ireland caps.”

The big shock here is that both Alan Pardew and Graham Carr report into Kinnear – and that’s a big comedown for the Newcastle manager – let’s hope Alan doesn’t have an ego.

We don’t  like the look of this at all, because they have brought in Joe at the same level as Derek LLambias – as a senior executive.

Do you think Joe acts as a senior executive and will represent the club well?

This is not good at all.

And Joe was right when he said he has the last word on who comes in and who goes out – it’s not Alan Pardew or Graham Carr – because  Joe is now their manager.

Yes, they’ll discuss things,  and then Joe will make the call.

    Good to see Pardew hasn’t commented, can only hope it’s a stance of dignity.

    FairPlay for breaking the news though Torq, if only we had known it were to be him we could have stopped it.

    What’s everyone’s opinion on Brown Ideye? He wasn’t that good for Nigeria last night but I believe he could be class signing. The following is what I’ve found out about the striker:

    Also his facts are all over…. his own personal achievements?!

    3 Manager of the Years? Try 1!! When he finished 6th Wimbledon, no small feat but he has not won it another 2 times?

    He signed Krul, try Graeme Souness? He signed in 2005, he even played against Palermo in the EL!!

    This guy just dreams things, then creates his own reality!

    Seriously?! he doesnt even project a decent image, how did he convince anyone to hire him?!

    As for his “we would have not went down” had he been manager the year of relegation. YES he did leave when we were in 12th position, but he won 4 games!!! 4!! in 18 games!

    The only good thing he may/may not have done it really depends on if he actually had any say was the signing of Kevin Nolan during his time in charge. It was merely days after though he was forced to resign though so who knows how much say he actually had in that transfer!

    Yet he did manage to part exchange R Taylor for NZogbia and sell Given.

    Top notch job if you ask me, our better players at the time.This guy is a joke!

    Cannot defend the club on this one mind.

    Sparky – you’re one spiteful individual saying that when ultimately it’s us fans who take the hit. Pardew is terrible but at least his mind is intact and didn’t deserve this putrid rug to have been whipped out from beneath his feet on the basis of one bad season.

    Now lets see how many throw in their season tickets after all most pubs & clubs now show Toons games every Saturday /Sunday or mid-week it will be very interesting to see what the gate is for our first home game & if there are that many who jack it in there is always the chance to get tickets for games of your choice at the box office.

    He insults us and the players last night.
    Today the club confirm his appointment.

    It’s a badly written pantomime.

    Tommyy…spiteful???…you’ve never had a good word to say about Pardew for ages and now you feel sorry for him just because of JFK’s appointment and all of a sudden I’m spiteful???

    I’m just keeping my convictions and opinion intact…

    TDS…ask me one on sport why don’t you!…Lambias is a casino operator/ accountant and JFK a footballer come manager with international experience…

    …and if you’re gonna try a trip me up on the ‘modern game’ aspect…just because you’re not employed in the game doesn’t mean you’re not keeping involved and watching what’s going on in the game.

    How am I trying to trip you up?
    I asked how you knew he was more competent seeing as he hasn’t been involved with football for 5 years?
    Lamearse may well be an accountant but he’s been in the football business now for over 5 years and has made some great signings the only one we missed out on is remy
    So again how do you know what how’s been doing?
    It’s sounds from his comments he’s been concentrating on getting fit
    When he asked if he watched us much last season he said yes but didn’t know much about the squad or even where we finished so are you seriously telling me he’s been making contacts and scouting the globe? If so I’m assuming you can back that up

    I wanted Pardew out because he was crap. Out on the merit of that and that alone. I take no pleasure in seeing him shafted like this by someone who is twice as bad as a person and a manager.

    This is exactly as bad as “wisegate”.
    Hugely unpopular figure coming in to screw things up. And i remember ashley saying he had learned from that mistake! Obviously not, you fat spacktard.

    There was some chat on Talksport last night about Directors of Football -and the gist was they should not have previously been a manager as they will not be able to resist sticking their noses into the mangers business.
    As for no comments so far by Percy – you can rest assured the next time he does a press conference the press are going to ask him about the appointment.

    Whereas your views are based on spite for Pardew, that much is glaringly obvious if you’re saying Kinnear is retribution for Pardew after his terribly showing last season.
