Kinnear Comeback Killed Off

Kinnear Comeback Killed Off

In just a bare minimum statement from the club, many Newcastle fans were delighted. The club dismissed the tattle speculated on in the Daily Mail that Kinnear was set to take charge again today, saying:

"Reports in the Press this morning that Joe Kinnear is to be appointed as Newcastle United manager are not true. The position remains that the club is still in the market to be sold and is still negotiating with prospective buyers."

Fantastic news. Meanwhile Kinnear disgraced himself further with Newcastle fans at the weekend, coming out with the usual self gratifying shite he normally manages, saying:

"Kevin Keegan and Alan Shearer, the Messiahs, got nine points between them. When I went into hospital, we were 13th with 13 games left. Everything was going in our favour.

All the other clubs were getting beat, and we were on a great run. It was looking an absolute doddle. I said to Mike (Ashley), 'let me come back`, but he said, 'no, the club doctor spoke to the specialist, and it was too dangerous`.

What disappointed me most was that, irrespective of my health, I could have been a figurehead, so Alan could have bounced things off me. I would have be able to help and guide him. Alan has been a phenomenal player, but he`s never been in management or coaching."
