Never one to shut up shop, come rain or shine, Shay Given has admitted that he has been pleasantly surprised by the way Joe Kinnear has set about his work with NUFC. The Lifford Leprechaun, away with Trappatoni`s side awaiting the Cypriots in the latest WC Qualifier, has gone on record to describe our current situation as 'ultimate turmoil`. He said:
"Joe can be judged on the Everton game - and we got a point. It`s a turbulent time at the club and Joe is only in for a couple of months, so he wants to get as many points and results as possible. We have got to give him credit for coming up to the club when it`s in a bit of turmoil at the minute to try to get us moving back up the League."
