'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kinnear confirms Owen as skipper

Joe Kinnear passed an initial examination with the fans with his statement that he sees Michael Owen as his skipper for the interim reign. With Owen`s goals one of the few shining lights in this turbulent start to the season, to strip him of the captaincy would be close to sacrilege. Kinnear said:

"There`s no reason why he won`t continue to be my captain. He is a very good voice in the dressing room. He has been there and done it and we need more players like that. I am not aware of anything to do with his contract. You will have to ask him or anyone else about what his long-term plans are. I don`t know anything about his contract. It is not running out in the next eight games, so it doesn`t really bother me.

I don`t think Newcastle will go down. I was delighted with the second-half performance against Blackburn and with the players they have got - and when they get them back in the team - we will be okay. I can`t see any danger of Newcastle going down. None at all. I accept confidence is the biggest thing in football. Big teams in the past have gone down, but, no, Newcastle won`t go down at all, no danger whatsoever."
