This Is How Joe Kinnear Can Help Me


We expected Alan Pardew to be mature and sensible about the changes at Newcastle, since Joe Kinnear arrived as Director of Football, to the sheer horror of most Newcastle fans.

A recent photo of Joe Kinnear – he needs some sleep

And Joe didn’t disappoint (so to speak), by shaming himself and our club with that uncalled for interview on talkSPORT three weeks ago.

And in his interviews today Alan Pardew has come out in a positive way about the changes, and Alan has stressed what Joe Kinnear’s job is, and how it can work to build a better squad on Tyneside.

This is what Alan had to say on how Joe Kinnear can help him:

“It is very simple for me.” “If Joe can persuade Mike to invest in the right manner.” “Then that will be the best outcome for us.”

“As well as we’ve done in the transfer market, there is always room for improvement.” “I have spoken to Joe and had a couple of meetings with him.”

“I have told him what I think the weaknesses in the squad are.” “Let’s be fair it’s a squad not a side.” “And I have told him I need to strengthen and I have a couple of ideas.”

Good words from Alan, who  has stayed at the club, even though Joe’s appointment has left him with less power.

And we know a number of managers with bigger egos  who would have already resigned from Newcastle, after the way in which Joe was appointed – which was a complete shambles,  to put it mildly.

But Alan is still here, and he seems more determined than ever to be successful this coming season.

And he needs to be successful too, otherwise his job will be under pressure come next May.

But Alan already knows that.

    People of the NUFCBlog – You are a gullible bunch

    You’re sat here arguing with “Jeff” a “13 year old boy from India” who seems to have a great aspect of the English language.

    He is a troll – He says ridiculous things and you lot argue with him – Baines for 4m, Luke Shaw for 1m – McClean for 15m…

    We’ve had them all on this blog over the last 5 years I’ve been reading – Jeff, Bob, Bill, Jim – That’s just the ones I can remember, The last three were Mackems.

    Stop feeding the troll

    Ha, no worries mate. An exciting story! I didn’t realise Streete is still so young. Good stuff.

    R Tayor is injured for another 11-12 months; Abeid and Amalfitano are on their way out (I think). If Colo or Saylor get injured then Myp is the only real long-term option. Willo isn’t good enough for a run of games and I doubt Good is ready for regular PL starts either. I think we definitely need a CB.

    As for wingers, Obers is awful and should be sold and Sammy A isn’t consistently good enough. That leaves HBA, who is better in the number 10 role, Fergy (if we don’t loan him), Guti and Goffran. Campbell isn’t a winger. We definitely need wingers.

    Oh, and Marveaux or course but as you listed him as an attacking MF and he is injury prone I don’t think this changes things too much.

    In an interview I heard this morning on BBC Newcastle Pardew said that JFK was effectively a replacement for DL. I don’t quite understand how that can work because DL was the Managing Director with a financial background whereas JFK is Director of football with a football background (supposedly). Surely they are completely different jobs – however I can see the sense of having a direct link to MA via JFK – time will tell if it works.

    raylor could well be heading for the door imo far too injury prone and no place at rb for him now as deb’s/santon/mbiwa/anita/tav all fight for that spot also when deb’s is injured.

    remy streete imo is our best young cb as i think we have hyped good up far too much imo (good could become a decent prem cb but i dont think he will ever stand out) remy seems to have that something special !

    and i would really like marv played as an off striker and encouraged to shoot as i think he could be our suarez but i would not play him in midfield personally as when he doesnt have the ball he doesnt care.

    i think we should get Corchia for RB, cracking young player and has bags of potential and could easily challenge Debuchy for the role for RB

    ideally I want to cover every position with two great players, but we have to tell how it is, we arent MU or Man city, chelsea…we have only premier league next year and maybe 5,6 cup matches, so to have two very good cb out of side when everybody is fit will be luxury, rather spent on two wingers than another cb…and for raylor, tavernier could be rb also raylor, mym, anita…so we dont need rb cover…two wingers sinclair,ince,wijnaldum and one striker bent,gameiro and we are massively improve

    debuchy,mym,colo,santon
    —cabaye,tiote,sissoko
    HBA—ciss—-sinclair

    strong bench with saylor,haidara,anita,marveaux,ince,bent,jonas,vuckic,williamson,ferguson,bigirimana,ameobi

    (from last thread)

    Yeah we have to be realistic and you make a good point that 3 players will improve us massively. I agree, but I don’t think it will be enough. I’m with you in that we need 2 wingers and a striker and I know it’s asking a lot but I feel we need CB cover as well (unless Strete is ready to come through to the first team).

    So, basically, you have changed my opinion slightly but I think 3 players is cutting it a little fine if we really are shipping several out. I’m just sick to death of seeing such a thin squad. It’s really held us back. Obviously there is not EL this season but with the amount of injuries we get, coupled with the fact that Fergy might go out on loan and players like Campbell, Streete etc might not cut the mustard, I think it would be wise to buy ample players now and not have to worry about it in January.

    Ha, that team does look nice though! Bench isn’t amazing but is very realistic for where we’re at currently. Let’s hope Sinclair comes through then… that would be grand.

    Sinclair to Newcastle looks set apparently, I hope so he is a great player imo however I hope that doesn’t mean that Marvaux will be shipped out he is a player we need to keep!

    Never take any notice of betting odds.
    Takes very little money for them to slash the odds.

    He’s the exact type of player we need though.

    yes i agree we have thin squad, but how many times we used players like gossling, ameobi and others…only one who was used is perch, simpson in europa leaugue because Debuchy couldnt play there…so only deadwood is going out and three players sinclair,bent,ince will improve us massively plus they are all english

    I believe what Pardew meant was that Joe will look after that side of Llambias’ old job that was to do with football.

    Another as yet unnamed and possibly not yet appointed person will handle the other side which is managing the non football / team side of the club and possibly the financial things although I’m sure the club have a Financial Director for that purpose.
