Kinnear Plays His Trump Card To Get Newcastle Fans Onside

11 years ago

It has been an ‘interesting’ few weeks at St.James’ Park, the new fixtures coming out being almost only a sideshow to the action going on in and around the club.

Unfortunately, not a lot of this ‘action’ has involved that old fashioned and obviously outdated summer pursuit of trying to sign some players, signings desperately needed if last season’s chaos is to be avoided.

Our new supremo, Director of Football Joe Kinnear, has said ‘quite a bit’ since announcing his own arrival but visible signs of anything actually happening have been a little thin on the ground.

There’s even been the odd fan who has got a trifle annoyed with the new ‘set-up’.

However, Joe Kinnear has belatedly cottoned on to what the fans are saying and has now got  a much better understanding of the Newcastle supporters’ hopes & expectations and acted accordingly.

JFK has now come up with a major initiative that will help Newcastle United get in the best state possible in advance of the new season.

Yes, in an inspired move, our Director of Football has now headed off on holiday despite the new season rapidly approaching.

I don’t hold out much hope of anything decent happening in terms of signings etc but at least we can enjoy a week or two without Kinnear’s increasingly bizarre and inaccurate ravings.

So for that Joe we salute and thank you, no need to hurry back.
