Joe Kinnear: He Shall Be Missed

If you discount the massive stress he has caused to the Geordie nation, it's been absolutely wonderful having Joe Kinnear around. He should be like a listed building...

The horse was never in the senate. It was suggested Caligula planned to appoint him but that was only suggested years later. I think the horse was made a priest or consul though if memory serves.

What about the time when he tried to sign Shane Ferguson from Birmingham City... who is on loan from Newcastle?

Em... did Kinnear not achieve near miracles whilst managing Wimbledon between 1992 and 1999? A football club in the top flight that did own a stadium. The crazy gang, you remember that right? Surely the most intrinsically English club of all time, brutally malevolent in physicality and completely without talent. Ok, so there was a large gap between leaving Wimbeldon, due to heart problems and taking up the reigns at Newcastle. But Kinnear getting another management gig surely wasn't that ridiculous, it's only 22 men on a field chasing a football, you stupid hack. "Which one is Andi Thomas?"

"Sir Clive Woodward's conviction that his World Cup-winning methods could be applied to balls of any shape and size"... he was right you know. Just maybe not at Southampton! Kinnear did great work at Wimbledon, but this was an hilarious period, for which I and clearly many others will be grateful!

Is the old 'stopped clock' adage proven true, or is master Thomas finding his niche? This was a thoroughly interesting article, containing salient points I hadn't considered before, and I didn't feel the urge to smash my head against the nearest hard surface repeatedly. I will miss Joe Kinnear, if only because it's always nice to have people to laugh at in football.

I think that everyone is missing the elephant in the room. David Beckham has just acquired the Miami Franchise. A subtle wink by Becks in the direction of JFK and this fledgling MLS team has a world class Director Of Football. Bob's ye uncle, Fanny's ye aunt, put on the kettle, my petal. Of course one would imagine there would have been hesitation by JFK had Becks taken over at FC Dallas.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
