JFK on his Tourette`s session
Having turned heads and shook the very foundations of the written press with his 63 swear word press conference, Joe Kinnear finally saw it time to explain why he decided to give the media such a sound smack down ahead of the Everton game. The boss said:
'It's the language I have grown up with. I'm not trying to be something I'm not. I grew up on a council estate in Watford. I come from a one-parent family. My dad died when I was young and my mum brought up five on a council estate. There were an awful lot of characters at Wimbledon in the 10 years that I was there for it.
There were things that had to be said and I don't know how to say them any other way than to tell them straight how it is. The break has given me the chance to get some key players back, like Obafemi Martins. It's given me a good chance to take stock of what I've got, work with the players and get to know them better. I've got a good feeling about the place, too.
Maybe I've brought new ideas into the club, but I like to keep everything simple. I'd stay here for life if I could. It's a massive club and I want to be part of it.'
