Will We See Joe Kinnear On The Training Pitch Next Week?


Newcastle had their worst season in the Premier League last season in terms of goals conceded, when we leaked a massive 68 goals, although we did have players like Fabricio Coloccini, Steven Taylor, Davide Santon and Tim Krul missing for long periods of the season.

alan pardew smiling - press conference

Alan Pardew – needs two strikers

And with three good defenders having been brought in during January, Mathieu Debuchy, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and young Massadio Haidara, once these three get a full pre-season behind them they will strengthen Newcastle’s defense.

It’s striker we really need, plus a number of good young players, like Olivier Kemen brought into the club this summer.

Alan Pardew talked today in the local press and he had this to say about what his priorities were:

“I think we might need two strikers.” “I personally think, my competition in that area – Cisse, Shola, Gouff and Adam Campbell – last season wasn’t strong enough.”

“In the Premier League, that’s not enough. I need more than that.” “And I’ve got to be honest, I think we’re pretty strong in defense.”

Newcastle supporters are getting frustrated at the lack of signing,m with Newcastle now the only Premier League club not to have any new signings this summer, and Sunderland have brough in seven – so that;s two more than Newcastle have signed this year.

We’re a little surprised no moves have yet been made for Darren Bent and Loic Remy, who everybody now knows are two of our targets.

But presumably that will change when Joe Kinnear returns on Monday form holiday and moves into his new office at the Benton training ground.

It will be interesting to see if Joe Kinnear will be out on the training fields next week, and we suppose there;s nothing wrong with that.

However, the very last thing we want to see is Joe stepping on Alan Pardew’s toes on the coaching side of things at Newcastle – that’s not Joe’s job.

But we should get some idea next week of how Joe Kinnear and Alan Pardew will get along at the training grounds.

For the good of the club, we hope they get along well.

    I think Joe can view the training from a distance but I would be very surprised if he gets involved. There should only be one man in charge of training and that is the manager.

    Think I’ll stop mentioning wijnaldum as kinnear has no chance of pronouncing it correctly.

    Sinclair and bent then. He should get those two right.

    Its creativity we are lacking!! A bit part player in Marveax had the most assists last season at around 5 I think, not good enough at all.

    would rather have Sinclair than these two

    Bents wages will be to high 40+k a week no way he should get that much i would say less than 30k and also 6-8 million for a striker who hasn’t done nowt for a season, no thanks, it’s a waste of money.

    same goes for Remy his wages would be higher than Colo and Colo is on about 60+k a week also his contract clause is roughly 6-8 million and there’s a rape case over his head, no thanks, not worth the risk.

    Sinclair is reported to be around the 4 million mark, young lad, loads of potential and hungry and English and his wages would be between 20-30k a week, yes please.

    I can’t argue that on paper our defence looks more than decent but in reality it was one of the worst in all four divisions.

    Repost due to ED’s morning madness putting up multiple posts

    No we won’t see JFK on the training pitches because he has too much to do and some back stabbing to catch up on.

    The fun all starts this week for us…first thing we need to suss out is who wants to go…then we’ll go down Carr’s list for replacements, and at the same time add the 2/3 we’re all wishing for.

    Pardew’s being saying ‘We don’t need to sell players” all week simply because he knows players want to go and that he’ll blame JFK for them leaving when in reality they want to go because of the brand of football Pardew plays bypassing the ‘quality on the ball’ players we have.

    At the minute it’s all about sniping and back-stabbing and something has to break. Pardew says he’s in charge and he’s in total control of the squad and I’m sure JFK thinks different

    I have no idea who will win but either JFK or Pardew have to go within the next 2 weeks and I hope and pray it’s Pardew and then I hope and pray the new manager gets the players he wants and we get good replacements for the two other purples plus Cabs that will leave.

    I honestly think at the end of the window we’ll be sitting pretty with a much improved squad, a new manager and a new owner.

    my glass three quarters full ATM and IMO the bloodletting starts this week

    Black and White with an army lol, Bent is on £70,000/week at Aston Villa right now. Do some research. He will not take a £30,000/w pay cut to come to Newcastle United – a club which finished lower in the league than the one he is currently playing for.

    AaranD, Marveaux is played out of position, he should play through the middle but unfortunately that place always goes to Cabeye ( rightly so).

    KevyMartin from a few threads back (sorry was at the t20 last night so catching up, do you think that 4-3-3 formation gives us enough strength in defensive set up, I dont mean the back 4, I just mean in ability to defend as a unit.

    HBA and Gouffy will need to support the mid field of Sissoko, Cabs and Tiote.

    The defensive duties of Debeuchy and Santon worry me greatly!!

    They only reason i’ve mentioned Konoplyanka is because Fulham have been told it will cost them £10million to get him, thats apparently from SkySports. So if they can surely we can.

    AaranD, you are too optimistic. When was the last time this club spent £10m+ on a player? It was Fabricio Coloccini almost five years back. Yes. We are a side which buys players under £7m, with the exception of Cisse for about £9m a few seasons back. Don’t expect the impossible. Please.

    Hoping that debuchy will be a class act this season, Russell Martin at Norwich is a solid right back who defensively uses his strength as he’s not the quickest. I think debuchy can do the same but he can offer a lot going forward too. And yes before someone comments I do believe debuchy is better than Martin. Just saying it is possible to play right back and not be the quickest. Maybe I should have said ivanovic

    Maybe I am, just hoping the Tv money will be used and used well. You can see how big of a difference this money is making with teams even outside of the top 6 making signings left right and center. And if we are to believe that we offered upwards of £15 million for PEA then £10 million is not impossible at all.

    I don’t have much to say this morning other than to post this gem of a quote:

    “Manager Alan Pardew wants Aston Villa and England forward Bent to play just behind his No.9 Papiss Cisse, linking play and regularly chipping in with goals.”

    If that doesn’t give us an indication of our tactics next season….

    A goalscorer, a predator and Pardew thinks he’s a player that can hold up the ball?! What the holy fcuk?

    lets see what we have signed up at the end of the transfer window before blowing a fuse.
    why would ettienne say we bid 15 mill and Dortmund admit it to if we didn’t ?????

    Jazzyp – Exactly, we spend a decent amount if that’s what it takes. Plus £10 -15 million is far from bank breaking these days.
    St Ettiene accepted a number of bids and said it was up to PEA, if it was pure money they may have rejected BVB and just accepted us and he may be a Toon player. Even then people would complain 😀

    Who will we sign?

    Bent and the Aston Villa tea lady if you ask me!

    I,m telling you the wait is killing me, its like the rest are all strenghening and we are twiddling our thumbs and sunning ourselves doing Nowt !

    Swansea,Norwich and even the Mackems have been busy?

    Plus all the commotion about Boney and PEA, it would appear with the coming of Joke, (Whats his Name?) Kinnear there is no longer any player who wants to come and play for us !

    Is it me, or do i see a Pattern here? The words “Frustration”! and “Inactivity”! come to mind.

    Phew we survived relegation I thought.

    Massive payday from the TV deals I thought.

    We can buy a couple of world class quality forward players I thought.

    We can spend £40 million as we will get at least that through the TV deal.

    Hmmm. Waiting.

    Jazzyp,
    Can you remember when we bid 11 or 12M for Nzogbia knowing fine well that Wigan wouldn’t accept it , for me it was proven when that summer Nzogbia was available for 9.5M and we weren’t interested so don’t put it past the proven liar to bid then pull out of a deal for medical or personal terms issues.

    Paying for Darren Bent is like paying for a high wage Ameobi.

    Unless Villa pay us to get him off their hands, he is simply not worth the effort…

    morning pal-Im for one am not an Ashley fan but ettienne admitted we bid big for pea as well as the 10mill bid for zouma. let try and stay positive and wish for another transfer window like January rather than thinking the worse already.
    so what if all the other clubs are signing players.if the players we are after through carr’s scouting are out there and we are in discussions with them,lets just hope for the best

    the best thing JFK can do is – when the transfer window closes , F//ck off back on holiday till january when he is needed. absolutely no reason to make himself present at the ground or to make ridiculous comments in the media . make himself useful and go on holiday for a few month.
