Kinnear Working Hard On Newcastle’s New Transfer List


Joe Kinnear has been quiet for a number of days now, but he has begun his review of the Newcastle squad and then when that’s been complete he will meet with Alan Pardew and Graham Carr and the three of them will decide which players to go after that will strengthen Newcastle’s side, and also which players to move out this summer.

Joe Kinnear – compiling list of transfer targets

That’s how it’s supposed to work and we really hope – for the good of the club – that the three of them can get on well together and work effectively.

And one question is which center-back will Newcastle go after this summer = with Newcastle pulling out of their chase for free agent Douglas,  and Alex Pearce having signed a two year extension of his contract with Reading yesterday.

Usually Newcastle would try to snap up free agents who are good players, and we think the arrival of Joe early this week has already changed things at Newcastle, with the transfer policy.

It helps significantly that Colo will stay at Newcastle, but another center-back is still needed.

It’s very clear that owner Mike Ashley was not happy that Newcastle were struggling with relegation last season, and Mike to his credit brought in five Frenchmen for around £18M, something that is usually very difficult to do in the January window.

Joe Kinnear is expected in Newcastle soon, and Alan Pardew must be returning to Tyneside too, because pre-season training starts a week on Thursday.

And this is what Joe has said about what he’s doing:

“Mike wants us to be successful.” “He wants us to do something here.” “He doesn’t want us to be in the position we were in last season.”

“I’ll be the one who sits down with Alan Pardew and says ‘let’s get this guy’. “I’ll be talking to the chief scout as well.”

We have to hope that there are no more blow-ups with Joe Kinnear – we pray there no more blow-ups with Joe Kinnear. 😀

And if Joe can keep in the background and work effectively with both Alan Pardew and Graham Carr,  then Newcastle can have a successful transfer window this summer.

That has to be the goal – and to be positive about things – that’s possible.

    I’m all for positives rather than the media led negatives.

    If only Torq was about maybe shed some light or discount Prouds latest rumour.

    The best thing JFK can do is keep his mouth shut and his ego under wraps and get on with the job

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we start looking at older has been players. Pardew wants experience and JK will remember players from the past and they’ll arrive. Slowing us down even more.

    If it happens, which we are 95 per cent sure, will be confirmed in next 48 hours…fingers crossed.

    Graeme Bailey ?@GraemeBailey 20 Jun
    Story I was working on, which was about Newcastle, has had to go on the back-burner!

    Probably already seen this but hey! May as well try to lift the spirits around here! 😀

    Chris,
    Pierre Emerick Aubameyang… that is probably not the spelling. Attacker, central or wide, St Ettienne

    For Kinnear to work he needs to keep his mouth shut, give no interviews and stop embarrassing himself and us

    Kinnear football brain ? Is it the same joke in here that had us hurtling towards the fizzy league ? I wouldn’t trust him to attract a good class of player and this after all is big part of his job. No way this works joking Ashley man get out

    John Hall buying the club back? I doubt John Hall could afford an executive box at SJP. Cameron Hall Developments are hardly Apple so that rumour is total bollocks.
