Then at the most crucial stage of a Director of Football’s year, Kinnear suddenly reveals he has to head off immediately on some ‘pre-planned family holiday’ and leaves stage left…Only for stage right, Alan Pardew instantaneously reappears just as the door closes on JFK. If you think this is pure coincidence then you are as barmy as that Director of Football…is it Jim Canthear or was it Jo King? I’m not very good with names either.
However, he has helped put the club in great shape to face this season’s massive challenges. Currently Newcastle have no Chief Executive/Managing Director, the manager has gone AWOL ever since JFK’s appointment and United have signed precisely none of the players that Joe Kinnear has claimed/hinted were going to arrive.
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.
Gazza has no shortage of people willing to help him but sadly the person who he most desperately needs to step up and help, finds it impossible to do so because of his issues. That person of course, being Paul Gascoigne himself.
