Time Joe Kinnear Cleared Off

The man that has no job role apart from breath down Alan Pardew's neck was attibuted to making noise about making no signings in his programme notes for the Man City game.

Joe Kinnear is that man.

He also stated that the squad has strength in depth and that some signings we made a year ago can see us through into qualifying for Europe.

Amongst his guff was: 'Given the business we did last January and with the addition of Loic (Remy) in the summer, it is our belief that we now have a squad that, in terms of quality and quantity, is stronger than we had in the season we finished fifth, and should enable the manager to deal with every reasonable eventuality.

I wonder what planet he's on?

We have one striker under contract in Papiss Cisse, albeit a misfiring one and severely lacking in confidence plus an ageing, lame one in Shola Ameobi in the last 6 months of his career here or will be if no new contract is signed.

Loic Remy is on loan and will go back to QPR or sign for Arsenal or any other team that pays a decent wage and wants to win something.

In central defence we have a club captain that's made no bones that he'd rather be home in Argentina, we've another playing out of his skin but for how long. 2 others that won't get long enough game time to stamp their mark unless we get a serious injury.

The midfield is fine but with no real strength in depth. This trait is familiar throughout the whole squad.

A decent enough first XI or ten if you don't include QPR's Remy but not much else underneath.

A blind man and his dog can see we need a minimum of 3 players to compete and get into a European slot. Those positions being defence, left wing and a proper partner up front for Remy, not forgetting that a permanent deal for the Frenchman should have been sewn up long ago.

Talk that our finances are stretched or it having to be the right deal for us are just utter horseshit. We're being robbed before our very eyes and that's before the extra premier league cash kicks in.

We have a billionaire owner who continues to buy up high street brands on the back of his free advertisement from us, costing us a figure of around £20 million potential commercial cash a season.

A bit of digging by a clever financial body could probably link us into bankrolling his spree as well.

Some of our fans may be fooled as they aren't interested in the politics but that won't last forever, in the meantime though, Kinnear needs to deliver or clear off.
