There Is Something Not Right About Kinnear’s Appointment


There’s not much support at all coming from the Newcastle area for Joe Kinnear, who has already been an embarrassment to Newcastle, and he hasn’t officially been in his new role as Newcastle’s Director of Football  for 12 hours yet – and that takes some doing.

Freddy Shepherd – in happier times

Newcastle Central MP Chi Onwurah had this to say in the Daily Mirror today:

“It does seem that Ashley moves in ways more ­mysterious than the Almighty.” “If he is trying to get rid of Pardew why give him an eight-year contract in the first place? But the most important thing is that Kinnear and Pardew find some way of working together.”

And Freddy Shepherd, who called on Kinnear to apologize to fans yesterday,  which is good advice, isn’t exactly a fan of Joe either, and the former Newcastle Chairman had this to say:

“For Joe Kinnear to come out and say the things he has said, I can’t believe it.”  “I certainly wouldn’t let him into Newcastle. I would have got rid of him before he got there because it’s ridiculous what he has been saying, it really is.”

“There is something that is not right. Everybody knows that in the business. There is something that isn’t right here.”

And it looks like some senior staff at Newcastle had no prior knowledge of Kinnear’s appointment, and it seems to us it was probably Mike Ashley talking to Kinnear, with Derek LLambias in the loop and Alan Pardew and Graham Carr too – but probably nobody else.

The news is that senior officials at Newcastle  were as shocked as the fans,  when Kinnear decided to drop the bombshell and spill the beans on Sunday night.

And Newcastle fans have still not recovered from the seismic shock – and 85% do not want Joe as Newcastle’s Director of Football.

    Looks very much like constructive dismissal – it is after all what he did to KK

    It’s simple, mike wants pardew gone but doesn’t want to pay, best way, humiliate pardew so he walks, I now want pardew to stay and become resilient and try and chase this fat greasy d1ck out of this club.

    Alreet Lesh,

    Considering what Mike has spent on NUFC. It’s no small investment is it?

    Surely it’s in his best interests to hire the correct people with the correct CV’s for the job at hand in all areas of the club?

    We are what, 5-6 years into his reign and have seen nothing but turmoil. This is down to Mike, no one else, for the poor performance of everything connected with the club.

    His recruitment of staff is of a huge importance and he has failed miserably. Apart from Carr, but now he has threw a grenade amongst that also.

    What is annoying me though, is he will not change his ways and constantly just hire the incorrect personnel to do the necessary jobs.

    Would Sports Direct survive if his recruitment was of a simular level? My question is WHY is he doing this with NUFC?

    Surely it’s for his own benefit to have savvy, repected, experienced and proven personnel to look after his interests. He is no mug, he knows exactly what is necessary but for some reason he will not do this.

    @Edd I know everyone will disagree with me but how can they not see it’s a wise choice and will benefit the club hughley just watch.

    The signings last season was just a joke.
    They were signing the wrong players at the wrong times. It was sooo clear we needed a striker and maby a winger and we were buying cm and fullbacks…It was that bad sissoko was playing rw and cisse played half a season up front by himself as a target man. If whoever was in charge last season had any sense they would have left debuchy gouffran and splashed that cash on a goal scoring striker to play with cisse.

    I sincerely hope if he does resign, he shouldn’t. This should teach Mashley a lesson, but if he does I hope he exposes the regime to the media and to us fans. This is not going to end well, we all know it.

    It is going to be bumpy ride but in the end I feel the cockney mafia is ending its regime here.

    tommyy, yeah maybe its a massive conspiracy to get pardew back o side with the fans, which will probably work, but the majority of fans always get behind a team and a manager, yes they may want them sacked but in the end if they are going to stay they will get behind them

    Kevy – it’s not the role it’s the tosspot in it! Most can see a director of football could be greatly beneficial but this man brings the club and the game into disrepute! It had to be a role filled by a professional with fitting credentials if a role at all.

    @Tommy true but he obviously must know something we don’t or he wouldn’t have got the job out of the blue….As much as we hate the cockney cu*t he wasn’t picked for no reason..He probably has great connections for all we know

    That picture of Shepard is a bit creepy! Probably the same smile when he sold us to the worst possible billionaire on the planet. Would Shepard have sold us knowing what was to happen? I dont think so

    @kevymartins since when has Mike Ashley learnt from his mistakes or knows what hes doing? Hes cluless about the footballing world and was forced year in year out to splash out some cash to save us from getting relegated.

    For the love of god, wake up!!

    Kevy – I have no doubt he has very few connections. I believe he got the job based on an agenda of Ashley’s, and if he didn’t it was because he was cheap, known to the club and Ashley and will be loyal to him as no other club would ever touch him.

    hmm.we have alot of knowledge now that we have kinnear,pardew and carr working under derik lambezee.there are no excuses for this year since now we basically have two managers for the price of 1.i can easily see us challenging top 6 next year if we make a few crucial signing.if we get bent and maybe a winger like matt jarvis then a midfielder like charlie adam, we could be in for a right good season.

    some solid youngsters aswell would be great.jay spearing will be available and id like to see us try to get players who will work harder for the team.

    I’m surprised noone has attempted to buy the club off him, I guess due to the sports direct marketing uses he values the club far more highly than any potential owners.

    Kinnear appointment a slap on the wrist from Mike to Pards for publicly suggesting he share some of the blame for last season, according to Louise Taylor in the Guardian.

    MA has sold Alan down the river Zambezee;

    Bearsize
    FFS would have sold the club to anyone – he was desperate – it was absolutely broke; it MA had not bought it could have ‘Done a Leeds’ – seriously.

    I personally think if Kinnear interferes with tactics, Pardew will be off.

    How about a situation where Joe walks into pre-season and says to Pardew, that Haidara is not good enough, he is going.

    Pards and Carr will be like, hold on, we just signed him he’s in my plans for next season.

    How on earth is this going to work?

    I can understand a DOF having an influence bringing players in, but in having players go out aswell?

    Pardew will be no more than a jumped up first team coach. The only thing Kinnear won’t have control over will be the tactics..

    Jeff, if you are a troll, you’ve let yourself down. You’re right, Jarvis, Bent, Adam and Spearing would be decent additions to the squad. Although, I’m sure we all hope for better. Jarvis is canny though, no doubt.

    Ashley totally controls the club, nobody employed by him will speak without his go ahead. JFK would not make such silly and vitriolic comments unless agreed by Ashley, such statements reveal the owners attitude towards the fans, however, all did not go too well for Joe, who made everyone aware of his illiteracy. The man is in an advanced state of senile decay, perhaps this is why he gets on well with Ashley and Llambias.

    I,m not sure what to make of this whole JK thing?

    It could be a very clever appointment by Ashley, bit i hope its only a 1 year contract he has given Kinnear !

    For me its a backward step for the whole club!
    Now we really are the Laughing stock of the whole Prem?

    Conspiratorically one could say this is a genious move by Ashley. It has essentially relieved Pardew of all the hate and placed it firmly on someone else, someone the fanbase will definetly not welcome. If anything Pardew now has the sympathy of most fans it seems instead of the anger/frustration that has been the typical headline of the past weeks.

    Could it be a genious PR move to alleviate the club (with a plan to let Kinnear go at some point)?

    Just saying 🙂

    ElvenKind, perhaps, from a certain point of view. Any fan with half a brain will realise pardew didnt turn into a pile a shite over night, he had injuries, competitions and a p**s poor squad to choose from. I’d hardly hate on him for last years performance.
