This Is How Joe Kinnear Can Be Successful At Newcastle


There was some good news last Thursday about Papiss Cisse staying at Newcastle, and finally agreeing to wear the Wonga insignia, and we were very pleased with that – because Papiss is a great natural striker and in his one and a half seasons on Tyneside, he’s scored 26 goals in 61 appearances, and some of those goals have been just unbelievable.

Kinnear – this is most recent photo we have of Joe

So we hope there’s more to come from the Senegal striker.

And there was some good news today from Sky Sports – if it’s true – that Newcastle have increased their bid for Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis to a rather large £6.9M, for striker who is free agent next June.

And Gomis has gone missing, presumably in order to force a move to Newcastle, his first choice club in the transfer market.

Joe Kinnear made a calamitous start in his new job, when he want on talkSPORT and talked all about his new Director of Football job, when it hadn’t even been announced, and told everybody that Derek Llambias was leaving the club, before that was announced, and mispronounced some of our best players’ names, and generally embarrassed himself and Newcastle United too.

If he had done that in a real job – – especially at the executive ranks – he would have been fired rather quickly – and Joe would have deserved it – but Mike Ashley seems to like Joe.

But it’s been very good that we’ve heard nothing, absolutely nothing from Joe since he came back from his holiday over two weeks ago, and we assume he is working hard (very hard) to get two good strikers through the door very soon.

If the Sky Sports news is true, we are also trying to get Loic Remy on a one year loan from QPR – and that’s good too.

Alan Pardew remains the face of Newcastle to the press, which gives him a bit of an advantage over Joe and the Newcastle manager had this to say today in The Times.

“I will always manage one way and that is talking to my staff, talking to my players, talking to my peers, as well as people like the owner, to make sure we are on the right agenda.”

“Joe now fits in there. But he can’t interfere with me managing the team and I won’t let him. I made it very clear to Joe.”

And of course Alan’s right, Joe cannot interfere with what the manager does on the coaching side of things, that’s not what a Director of Football does.

We don’t know what Mike has told Joe Kinnear, but maybe he gave him instructions not to give any interviews to the press, and that would have been some good advice from Ashley to Kinnear a few weeks ago.

That may be what has happened, and if Joe can get some good players through the door, and use his millions of contacts he has told us he has in place around the world, and keep bringing in good players now and in the future to Newcastle, he could even be a successful Director of Football at Newcastle.

That’s possible if not altogether probable.

What do you think?

We are helping Ingo Hagemann – an International MSc student in Sports Marketing at Northumbria University in doing a survey on the controversial sponsorship between Wonga and Newcastle, as part of his Masters dissertation.

Ingo needs still more completed surveys completed, after meeting with his supervisor, so please help if you can by taking the survey here – many thanks.

    Cisse has never said he’s staying…all he’s said is sorry for being a dick after he was outed in the casino and that he’ll wear the wonga shirt.

    Cisse is history…gomis and remy will be the front line this year

    Cisse will be gone if we get gomis and remy that is my gut feeling. Come on Joe get the deals done.

    Taking that into account how about this

    1 Krul
    2 Debuchy
    5 Mbiwa
    6 Coloccini
    3 Santon
    8 Anita
    4 Cabaye
    7 Sissoko
    10 Ben Arfa
    9 Gomis
    11 Remy

    Subs: Elliott, Saylor, Dummett, Haidara, Marveaux, Vuckic, Tiote, Jonas, Gouffran, Shola.

    I’d be happy with that as a minimum.

    It must be time for Pardews yearly bukkake right about now, heard Mashley has some new Donnay kegs for the occasion and also heard JFK only wanted Mick Harford hired so he had one of his old guard to get him a hard on before showing Pards who is boss around this town.

    Afternoon all.
    I see jeff-jayk-sum ting has had his daily fix of abuse.
    Its amazing if you look back when this transfer window had just opened,What the blog’s aspirations and hopes were for the up coming transfer window. 4 or 5 players in-PEA-SIEM DE JONG-SACKHO ect, Now we are pinning our hopes on players like gomis and even bent to bolster our ranks.
    I just feel disheartened the way the club is being run and how week by week the morale of the nufc fan is being taken away to the point that we will just accept any player coming through the door !!

    Get French Football ?@GFN_France 6h
    In an official statement, Lyon have announced they have the funding to continue to build their new stadium. #OL

    interesting to see where they have all of a sudden got the money to carry on the build of there stadium.
    On bardsley, Why on earth would we sign this guy who is no better than simpson who we let go on a free.

    was talking to a number of people this morning about academies etc and surly any club with half a brain would go the Barcelona route. their underage set up is phenomenal. their training young kids to play footy the right way from an early age. its worrying the lack of english and irish talent there is coming through (im irish so i had to get that in there)

    sum ting wong xx

    I left the blog mainly because of Ruddy’s lies which he endlessly repeated. I posted under my own name but he linked me with another poster for know good reason as Ibizatoon pointed out at the time.
    I couldn’t be bothered with his boring behaviour so I now post elsewhere though continue to read Ed’s excellent blog.
    Ed, offered to monitor the complaint because he had been involved in controversy before. It is a shame the bullies win.
    Good luck.
