    Kinnear to return as DoF, what a joke, and Pardew welcomes it.

    That Talksport interview, priceless

    Would love to have a place at that lunchoen today between them 2.

    I think Joe has lost the plot, sounds like an absolute nutjob!

    "I heard a silly comment of 'what can I attract?' I can open the door to any manager in the world, anyone, that's the difference."

    "I got over 10,000 letters when I had my heart attack, I felt very proud of that and thought I did an excellent job" :eek:

    I feel really sorry for Newcastle fans with the appointment of Kinnear, he clearly has been brought in to force Pardew into quitting and saving the club millions but it is an utter joke.

    I read that he said he was "Smarter than all Newcastle fans".

    So his IQ is at about 23 then.

    http://www.nufc.co.uk/articles/20130618/kinnear-appointed-as-director-of-football_2281670_3212997

    Newcastle United have appointed Joe Kinnear as the Club's new Director of Football on a three-year deal.
    Joe will report directly to the club's Board as the senior executive in charge of all football-related matters. Chief scout Graham Carr and manager Alan Pardew will report into Joe.

    Managing Director Derek Llambias said: "The board are pleased to welcome Joe back to the club. Joe has many years of experience working within the game, and this experience will be of great benefit to the Club in achieving our objectives over the coming seasons."

    Joe Kinnear first arrived at United in September 2008, initially as Interim Manager, following the departure of Kevin Keegan.

    Joe had previously had a successful seven-year management spell with Wimbledon and as a player enjoyed a fine ten-year career with Tottenham, during which time he won 26 Republic of Ireland caps.

    He was a great full back for Spurs but I went a little off him when he was goading Ginola about his hamstring one season, those were the times when we had a mini rivalry with Wimbledon for a season!

    He's lost the plot a little bit that's for sure but Yohan Kebab will keep him out the headlines with some excellent displays

    Derek Llambias resigns as managing director of Newcastle #SSN

    The sensitive flower, guess he didn't like having Joe get his name wrong :(

    It's boggling, isn't it? What possessed Ashley to do it?

    And i've just seen a rumour that Graham Carr mgiht also resign. That would leave them right in the crapper...

    I think 6 months is generous, if he keeps doing interviews and getting himself worked up it could be a lot sooner.

    Forgive my lack of knowledge on the matter but isn't Graham Carr supposed to be a very highly rated scout??

    Every interview I've read from Kinnear over the last few days makes him sound mental. Something strange is definitely going on.

    Carr has had great success with the Spursking model recently, but doesn't appear to have confidence in his ability to scout from an alternative market.

    Who do you think is writing about those interviews? The Press. Who is he having a go about? The press!

    Rather then them admitting that they are full of shit, and that they write sensational bullshit to sell papers they are having a go at the only person that has dared to say publically what we all know.

    Kinnear may "sound drunk" (he didn't sound drunk to me) he may also say names incorrectly, but he is absolutely 100% correct about the press being ****s. He is also correct that the fans believe too much of the bullshit from the red tops.

    Good luck to him, I hope he does a good job, just because of the stick he is taking.
