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

JFK looking long term

Having declared that there would be some serious movement about the club by the Chelsea game this weekend, Joe Kinnear looks set to chat with our beleaguered chairman in the very near future. However Kinnear looks set to lay down the law about a possible longer term appointment and transfer targets, which will probably go down as well as a fart in a spacesuit with a man looking for minimal investment in the club prior to its sale. JFK said:

"I'm looking forward to my meeting with Mike because I think everyone would like some clarification regarding the takeover situation. Hopefully I'll hear how far down the line the sale of the club is and if there is going to be any significant progress in the next couple of weeks. As far as I know due diligence has started, or is about to start, but I'm not in contact with Keith Harris directly so I don't know.

This meeting will give me the chance to find out what is going on and what my situation is going to be. If the sale isn't as far down the line as we thought then I think it is only right I ask for a contract until the end of the season. I know why Mike doesn't want to give me a two or a three-year contract, and I understand that. If I'm on a long-term contract it could jeopardise the sale and I don't want to do that.

The most important thing is the club, not my personal situation, but I think it is in the best interests of the team if I am given some long-term authority with a contract until June or something like that. It will clear up a bit of the uncertainty. If the club isn't going to be sold before the end of the year - and it's not certain that it is - then I'm also going to give the board a list of players I want to sign and list of players I'm willing to sell in January.'
