We put out an article very early this morning that the Independent was reporting Chief Scout Graham Carr was reassessing his position at the club, and was said to be on the brink of resigning from the club, after the appointment of Joe Kinnear as Director of Football.
Joe Kinnear – not worth the problems he causes
Newcastle were expected to bring in a couple of top players this summer, but that may all change now with Joe Kinnear essentially in charge of transfers, and we could get more players coming in, and more going out.
The Journal is reporting that Derek Llambias resigned yesterday on a “point of principle” and that’s thought to be linked with Joe canceling the chase for Brazilian defender Douglas.
Alan Pardew is in a terrible predicament, as Alan Shearer rightly pointed out today, but the manager is willing to stay and try to make it work, and we should know shortly whether that’s going to be the same position that Graham Carr takes – we hope it is.
But Graham Carr and Alan Pardew are not the only ones looking at their predicament at Newcastle, because of the embarrassing chaos of this week, and the Journal is reporting this morning that other senior people are reassessing their positions at the club.
And Joe Kinnear has been told to limit the interviews he gives, and cancelled another Talksport interview that was scheduled for yesterday morning – thank heaven for small mercies.
But why wasn’t Joe told that on Sunday night, after he unprofessionally leaked all the news to the press and undermined Newcastle?
We’ll have to see what happens – but in our opinion Joe Kinnear is simply not worth all the problems he causes – and while you may not have liked Derek LLambias – in the end he was trying to bring some stability and sense to the club.
And then Joe Kinnear arrived.
