This Is What Joe Kinnear Needs To Understand – Quickly


One of the things you learn in business is to under promise and then over deliver, and that always keeps customers happy – a simple example of that is when you buy something, and they say it will take four days to arrive and it arrives after just two days, and you are impressed.

Joe Kinnear next to Ashley Saturday – was that the 3rd goal just conceded?
That’s Graham Carr on the left

Unfortunately our new Director of Football Joe Kinnear doesn’t understand that rather simple rule, and Joe did the opposite over the summer – he over promised and under delivered and Newcastle fans were not happy, and that’s an understatement.

But we think Joe may be learning quickly, and just take a look at a part of his program notes from Saturday, when he talked about Loic Remy:

“I was delighted to bring Loic Remy to the club in August. In the glimpses we have seen of him so far he has shown what we knew already; that he is a top quality player who will be a fantastic asset to the team.”

“While it is very early days, Loic possesses all the characteristics that we are looking for to improve the first team and, if he became available, he is exactly the kind of player I would want to secure for this football club.”

“Clearly, however, he’s a QPR player and we are respectful to them as they will no doubt have their own agenda for Loic when he returns to them.”

So reading that Newcastle fans may think – drat – he’s going back to QPR in the summer.

So if Loic signs in early January for us – Joe will look good.

And it would also be a great deal for Newcastle – so we are hoping for two things – one is that Joe is learning quickly in his new role at Newcastle, and secondly that we do sign Loic permanently  in January – he would be a fantastic signing for Newcastle.

We have not been impressed with Joe so far, but for the good of Newcastle United, we still hope the Irishman can quickly become a good Director of Football at the club.

What do you think?

    Against Everton if Cabaye is injured I would play Tiote in his place and replace Cisse with Gouffran

    Would be the best team of battlers with hard work and flair as well because Everton are good but they can be weak at the back as well

    I feel SIssoko and Anita could do a job on the Everton midfield a bit like the Villa away game just worry Lukaku tears us a new one though

    Good comments santon @1. With Leeds midweek Pardew will already be worrying about having to “play too many games” no doubt. Pity we don’t just get on with it like Swansea.

    Who could possibly be impressed with Joe so far? He introduces himself as DoF instead of waiting for a proper club announcement, then proceeds to mispronounce every name in sight while delivering a load of bollocks about himself. One loan signing that was already underway when he arrived. What was he supposed to do in the summer other than go on holiday and attend a pissup on the yacht?

    I see Sunderland are winning without Di Canio. 😆 Of course it’s only Peterborough in the League Cup. Let’s see how they do in the Prem now.

    What Joe needs to understand is bargain booze deliver. The weather is getting cold and pensioners shouldn’t go out and risk a fall.

    Kinnear brings nothing but discontent to newcastle. He has no experience in the role and has zero pr skills.
    As a lot have said he is there merely to deflect blame.
    I have the utmost respect for Ashley as an entrepreneur but I cannot fathom his choice for directors at the toon??
    Go out and get someone to inspire everyone at the toon like sir Clive Woodward or Dave Brailsford. People great in front of the cameras but also have a track record of world class performance. Buddy them up with football people like Beardsley and Shearer. Let them learn from the drive and passion they have in their fields.
    Ashley should ditch his ego and realise he has the opportunity to leave a legacy at the toon. He isn’t in it for the long term but he still has a chance to leave with his reputation intact. Especially if he makes us a successful football club with an attractive proposition to a potential buyer!!

    I’d be less mortified about the fact he has a non-kitchen job at nufc if JFK could at least understand how to tie his own laces without banging his head on his knee.

    Demba Ba has come of the bench in the 78 th minute of Chelseas Capital One Cup match against Swindon to replace Kevin de Bruyne.

    12 months ago he wouldn’t sit on the bench for us in the Premiership with a fully fit squad, if I remember right.

    We need to keep the faith in Alan and Big Joe. Together they will lead us to salvation. the longer they are together, the better we will get. A big thank you to the master of ceremonies Mr Mike Ashley. And a big thank you to Mr Ed Harrison for always seeing the bright side of life.

    We have no points in 30 games and the manager is trying his hardest. The owner has spent no money. We think things might get better. We need stability. What do you think?

    John,
    I went through my angry stage with Cashley about three years ago and stopped going 18 months ago after 50 years. The whole situation is now just ridiculous and the only way to cope is to have a larf at the club and the so called fans who put up with this bandit and his cohorts. We deserve no better because we put up with the regime.

    Token demos will achieve nothing. The only way to get rid of this regime is to stay away from the ground. Not because it will hurt him in the pocket but because it will embarrass him. 15K in the ground week after week and he will be forced to sell. The brand would be toxic for him. I am prepared to get relegated to get him out rather than stagger on like this and hope we stay up while he pockets all the dosh.

    Off subject, Poyet is the fave to get the mackems gig next. Will be devastated if he goes there, I rate Poyet as a manager, he even got Wayne Bridge playing football again.

    We are Sports Direct United proudly sponsored by Wonga.

    Any suggestion to the contrary from anyone within the club by this stage is surely willful, grubby, deception.

    Ashley out!

    John,
    Not sure but I think he ended up a teacher. Gets back to the occasional game and legends meetings. A career cruelly cut short. I am occasional blogger who likes to take the rise out of the whole situation. Speak in the near future. Remember! keep the faith in Percy Parsnip and the regime of chancers. They will get us relegated. Percy might be given 7 more goes. He cannot fail. Nite nite.
