More Senior Officials Assessing Their Positions At Newcastle


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.

    Just realised the Hull 4M bid for Charlie Austin. He has a goal every 2 games ratio and is in the last year of his contract, along with Shane Long.

    Maybe Kinnear could grab a prolific goalscorer and a good worker for under 8M? 4M less than taking a gamble on Bony.

    Anybody seen Austin? Record speaks for itself, 23 and 6″2, just not sure what he plays like?

    MA goes to the pub meets JFK who is broke – so he offers him a job – but does not tell anyone else!
    We find out because JFK goes on a media benda – I bet nobody at the club knew anything about this – it was not part of the plan – the whole staff could claim constructive dismissal !

    No wonder Ashley changed from a squash instructor.

    Did he make his students eat their racquets??

    Were the squash courts covered in skin and bone? The rest driven to psychiatrist or alcholism??? I wonder what their story is :((((

    Repost –

    Hi guys, new to the blog, but long time reader. Sick of this farce and decided I need to join in the venting!! Loving the work boys also!
    Torq honestly some days your the only reason keeping me going with your post!!

    What I don’t understand is the Fat Controller giving Carr an 8 year contract, presumably he can see the good work that he is doing, and sitting and watching Carr get pushed out the door also by this monster that is JK. Surely mike wont sit there and watch him leave also ???

    Factual headline there…so we know that more than one senior official at our club is assessing their positions right? Would love to see the source there.

    It’s a merry-go-round of Chinese whispers…Ed writes this, so someone else writes “Kinnear alienates Pardew and Carr”, then someone else writes “Kinnear forces Pardew and Carr to resign”, then someone else writes “NUFC in crisis as whole coaching staff walk out in protest of Kinnear appointment”, then it’s “Key players demand to leave as Kinnear debacle leaves Newcastle rudderless”….and so on…

    Andy,
    He is big strong, not exactly pacy but not slow either. If he is available at 4million it is a no brainer. Him and a pacy attacker who could play a central role or a wide attacking role and I’d be happy.

    Speaking of wide players, Redmond is supposedly subject to about 4 bids in the region of 2-3million. Another that I think we should be in for. Particularly at that price.

    I actually spoke to a member of the Newcastle backroom staff last season at an away match and they were not too happy back then. Admittedly it was due to comments by AP about everyone at the club having to take responsibility for the league position when they felt they had done their job, which is none football related, to the best of their ability. Once again the cartoon that is Newcastle rolls on.

    After 25 years of supporting NUFC, sadly i don’t think it’s worth ruining my life over anymore…. every relationship, every job i’ve ever had has been ruined, because NUFC is my first and only Love

    For her to be treated like this, for my Love to be abused like this? There is no justice

    We are being robbed blind, i seriously think the cops should be brought in here

    Can’t take this anymore FFS man 🙁 ARRRRGGGGHHHHHH WHYYYYYYYY??????

    we need a huge wilfred bony type signing a top top quality player to try get our minds off what is happening and try to put some sort of smile back on our faces !

    everything is doom and gloom and there is not 1 bit of positive news its just “ah well it cant get any worse” and hey presto you wake up the next morning and we pull out of douglas deal ^^

    in the space of a week not even the owner knows what the plan is now as it seems we dont want even the highest quaity free players guarenteed to make him money >.<

    Joe’s gone awful quiet. Maybe that was the plan. Joe comes out all guns blazing all crazy fists cos everyone knows its a shit sandwich that’s none too palatable no matter how its garnished and then it goes quiet for a while, everyone takes it on the chin and old beer bottle pockets gets his own way again.

    Has anyone considered that Ash might be a psychopath.

    Your contact sounds like a bit of an idiot frankly. That’s a bit like Santon saying “Hang on, I’ve played well this season, don’t say the team didn’t play well without saying ‘except for Davide’!”

    When the team does well, I’m sure everyone from Ashley to the tea lady benefits, so the opposite is also true.

    Croftus,
    I’m actually quite pleased we pulled out of the Douglas deal, the few times I have watched him he has been poor. Probably why he is still a free agent and no big club has come for him.

    Now we are keeping Colo, I’m not sure we need a top cb. I’d take Maguire from Sheff U as a young un who is ready to play, but also content to be second fiddle behind Colo and MYM and competing with Taylor

    Markaccus – they can also have:
    “The Magpies fly the nest”
    “One for sorrow – Kinnear appointment leaves Magpies in distress”
    “What a Joe K”
    “NUFC’s Muslim players demand to leave as Kinnear refers to Muhammad as ‘Malcolm'”

    What a strange comment. Carr has bought us some absolute gems who have been tragically wasted on a sub par traditional British manager.

    Our policy of buying young players is great but we don’t have the staff to develop them. Bent would have been great 5 years ago, not now.

    So envious on how Liverpool and Spurs are building up

    Lilongwe, do you really think Kinnear knew about Douglas? Are you joking me? As a formet NOTW sports editor said on Irish radio the other day, Carr could have 20 players on his scouting list , and Kinnear wouldn’t know anything about any of them. Dangerous times for NUFC. The promoted clubs have money and ambition. We have a lunatic idiot penny pinching owner . Relegation a real possibility.

    I cant wait for the first game at sjp and ashley in the directors box and every single toon fan pointing at him and his cardiac side kick joke kinnearbasher see what happens then, with that in mind ashley will go into another paddy put the club up for sale and someone who has the toon at heart and is a supporter somewhere will save us from this complete and utter arsehole of an owner………… well I can dream cant i haha

    if carr leaves then expect pardew to go soon after its clear the decks time ashley doesnt want to pay out the remainder of peoples contracts so hes got someone to do it for him ie kinnearbasher

    Can those who stood with Billson now stand up and say , ” We were wrong” , re Ashley? At least Billson came out and said he thought Ashley was badly mistaken. Wrong horse backed! If Ashley hasn’t pissed on the Gallowgate yet, you know Kinnear will, after a few pints…
