Photo Special – Joe Kinnear Banner Confiscated By Stewards

8 years ago

A rare moment of excitement took place at St.James’ Park yesterday and unsurprisingly, it didn’t occur on the pitch.

While the game was being played out, there was a commotion on the terraces, which turned out to be stewards taking down a banner ‘tribute’ to Joe Kinnear.

Good on whoever made this banner, it made me laugh.

It gets the message across but without resorting to over the top language or obscene images.

The fact is that the goings on at Newcastle United are so laughable that you don’t have to resort to over the top actions, simply turning a mirror on the lunacy and crass behaviour is quite enough.

Not surprising that the club hierarchy sent the poor stewards in to make sure the banner was taken down.

Obviously they wanted to make sure that there was zero entertainment on show at the match and along with everybody concerned from Newcastle United, they made it a match day you’d certainly like to forget.
