NUFC Officially Confirm Kinnear As Top Man With Alan Pardew and Graham Carr Working Under Him – Let Us Pray

9 years ago

So it wasn’t simply a nightmare, or not one you can just wake up from anyway!

Yes, Joe Kinnear is back and he’s bigger and wielding more power than the last time.

‘One Flew Over…’

JFK will be above our Manager and Chief Scout who will report to him.

This is the wording that the club belatedly released some 48 hours after JFK announced it himself.

‘Newcastle United have appointed Joe Kinnear as the club’s new Director of Football on a three-year deal.

Joe will report directly to the club’s Board as the senior executive in charge of all football-related matters.  Chief scout Graham Carr and manager Alan Pardew will report into Joe.

Managing Director Derek Llambias said: “The board are pleased to welcome Joe back to the club.  Joe has many years of experience working within the game, and this experience will be of great benefit to the club in achieving our objectives over the coming seasons.”

Joe Kinnear first arrived at United in September 2008, initially as Interim Manager, following the departure of Kevin Keegan. Joe had previously had a successful seven-year management spell with Wimbledon and as a player enjoyed a fine ten-year career with Tottenham, during which time he won 26 Republic of Ireland caps.’
