If you ask Newcastle fans if Joe Kinnear had any impact at Newcastle they would say no – well at least not a positive impact.
Joe Kinnear – while Newcastle’s Director of Football for eight months
Even Mike Ashley is covering his face
But news today that the now massively rich PSG have made the decision to offer their fans their own brands of various potato snacks – and would you believe it, but out former central midfielder Yohan Cabaye is one of the stars on the packaging.
The breaking news, which is sweeping the world by all accounts, is that Paris Saint-Germain have released their own range of crisps – and they include a flavor called Yohan Kebab.
The great Yohan Kebab – while at Newcastle
Of course in Joe Kinnear’s first ever interview on talkSport in June of last year – before his appointment as Director of Football was even announced by Newcastle – he managed to famously get a number of the Newcastle players’ names (completely) wrong – and he famously referred to Yohan Cabaye as Yohan Kebab.
Well we suppose that was an improvement on his first ever press conference as the Newcastle manager back in September of 2008, when he managed to use the F word 53 times, as he lay into Simon Bird, the Mirror football columnist.
Joe’s mispronunciation of names should not have come as too much of a surprise, because when he was Newcastle manager back in January of 2009 he called Charles N’Zogbia – Charles N’Somnia – and the French winger didn’t even have bags under his eyes. 😀
Charles left the club for Wigan before the end of that January – but it was just a coincidence…….
So it just goes to show you that Joe did in fact have an impact at Newcastle, and PSG are showing they also have a sense of humor.
