JFK on January

Speaking in the press today, Joe Kinnear gave us a teasing glimpse of what could happen in January should he be given a season-long deal. With players being lined up already, the likelihood seems that Mike Ashley will keep faith with the caretaker in the interim. Kinnear also gave some hints as to the frustration he is also currently suffering with the alleged takeover of the club by Yanks. He said:

"I am one step ahead. I have already drawn up a hit-list. Whether I get to implement it, I`m not sure. There`s no point being here unless I make an effort to bring new players in. I recommended players I consider would enhance us in two areas of the pitch. Two top-class players that would stop us dropping from where we are.

I don`t think they will come here, I know they will on a loan basis from January to June, then hopefully on a permanent (deal). I have spoken to their agents. We would be 100 times better off if we got them. They are worth 10m each. They are not in their sides, but are top-range players.

We have got to pay decent money for top-of-the-range loans. A couple of million for someone very special until the end of the season to get us in to a better position. I have got to get that message across.

I said it would be after the Chelsea game but the goalposts have moved since. Day one when I walked in they said the club would be sold before the Chelsea game. It`s month to month, so the last game of the month is Middlesbrough. Then we start another month if it`s not sold. Who knows? They (the interested parties) have got to come up with the money, I suppose. I`m here until they sell it. Your guess is as good as mine.

It`s not easy but I can`t say I didn`t know about the situation when I took the job. It`s frustrating at times. It`s the same line: 'We`ve got people buying it but we haven`t seen the cash`."
