7 years ago

Revelations this morning as a spy has managed to gain access to Joe Kinnear’s diary and following his successful (well no doubt he’ll be pleased with it, if he can remember which particular lies and truths he told on this occasion) interview on Talksport last night, we can reveal our new Director of Football’s schedule today.


Before Breakfast – Swim the channel there and back (with 25 Olympic Swimming Gold medals it will be a doddle).

9-10am – Conference call with Barack Obama to get Joe’s take on how to solve the Syrian crisis and end poverty in the World.
