The Day I Met Joe Kinnear

8 years ago

The chaotic life of Newcastle United continues, with a Newcastle fan using Twitter to tell the world what Joe Kinnear said to him when he bumped into him at Newcastle Central station.

Great for any club employee to chat with fans but obviously it depends on what the content of the conversation is.

We Know The Feeling Joe!

Sadly I can just imagine JFK blabbing on about transfer targets and suchlike, this is basically what Kinnear told United fan Matt Skeen.

He wants rid of Shola.

Gomis deal is slow due to the fact he wants 80k a week.

After a young Belgian, couldn’t remember the name but he was 21 year old 6ft 2 Belgian international.

After Ince, Sinclair and McArthur from Wigan.

In terms of believing Kinnear would do something so daft, I have a good friend whose son is at Newcastle’s Academy. This friend was up watching his son recently and JFK was there, as they passed each other my friend said hello, as you do. Joe stopped and asked how my mate was doing. Some small talk followed and then Joe turned to the subject of possible signings, asking my friend’s opinion.

Joe then went into some detail on who the club were looking at and listened intently to my mate’s opinion, as the conversation went on at some length, it becoming very apparent that Joe thought he was talking to somebody who he already knew well…they shook hands eventually and went their separate ways.

Exactly who Joe thought he had been speaking to is anybody’s guess!
