Kinnear issues Shay move KO

Kinnear issues Shay move KO

With Gomes having his boat race rearranged in the Carling Cup win for Spurs over Liverpool, the rumours linking our keeper with a move to Spuds has cropped up again in certain media outlets. However Joe Kinnear was quick to blast any hint of a move for our number one, saying:

'I can save Harry the time and money and tell him not to bother even picking up the telephone, because there is no way Shay Given will be leaving this football club. We want to build up Newcastle United and get good players in, not good players out. And why would he want to go to Spurs? This is a bigger club than Spurs.

Shay Given has a lot of presence. All great goalkeepers have it. He reminds me a lot of Pat Jennings, who I played in front of for most of my time at Spurs. I have the utmost respect for Shay Given, as have most people in the game. He has vast experience and he is vital to us - and not only that, he is a decent fella.'

Kinnear, You bitch! Still realing from the fact that you'll never be initiated into the Tottenham hall of fame. Crap manager, crap player who was in a very average to poor Spurs team that was in decline in the early to mid 1970's. Bums on seats in a bigger stadium do not make for a bigger club, trophies do, what have The Maggots won in recent modern history?

i dont mind him saying Shay isn't for sale and if I was Newcastle I would keep hold of him at all cost. BUT Spurs isnt a bigger club? In what way? In the past and present Spurs has won more... joker... what a Mickey Mouse manager.

And the point is firmly hammered home when we see only SPURS fans on a NEWCASTLE blog! Spurs always have been and always will be a bigger club than Newcastle. Newcastle are a 1 club city, London has FIVE premier league clubs and at least 3 of them have a bigger nationwide and international following than you lot. Every year when I go on holiday all I see for sale is Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton and Spurs shirts for sale, not once have I EVER seen a barcode strip in another country! Small, 1 city club, who have never done anything significant and never will!
