PICTURE: Joe Kinnear hard at work on a Sunday!

Image for PICTURE: Joe Kinnear hard at work on a Sunday!

Joe KinnearThis Director of Football job is pretty hard work as Joe Kinnear is working seven days a week to try and get new signings over the line for Newcastle United.

Kinnear has been pictured by @Matt_Skeen1 at Newcastle train station this morning on his way to London to get the Eurostar to northern Europe.

It’s nice to see that Joe Kinnear is working around the clock to try and secure transfers for the Magpies, even if he’s not sure who he’s trying to buy!

Matt Tweeted: “He’s off to Belgium/France” followed by “he’s after Sinclair, Ince and a young Belgian striker. He wants rid of shola” and “he couldn’t remember the name. 21 year old Belgian international, 6″2” – if he did know the name he’d probably only get it wrong any way.

Any ideas who that player could be?

It’s also likely that Kinnear is headed for final talks with Bafetimbi Gomis, with the French striker’s future no closer to being sorted out as he watched his team in Ligue 1 action last night.

Let’s see if we can track Kinnear’s movements…

  • Jake says:

    He could be off to holland for talks with zoet

  • Gibbo says:

    More likely to come back with nothing but Belgium chocolates

  • Anthony says:

    Either meant goalkeeper and it’s Zoet or perhaps he’s after Club Brugges’ Maxime Lestienne? He’s a 21 year old left sided winger/forward… But he’s only 5’9″ :/

  • kel says:

    outside the ground before kick off yesterday he told a group of us he’s got three signings coming in this week. Goalie, left winger and centre forward hope he doe’nt miss them cos he’s playing on tracks

  • MallorcaMag says:

    Heard rumours about this guy coming to the Toon
    RC Mallorca have his registration but he plays on loan
    in Belgium

    No wonder Joe couldn’t remember his moniker

  • John says:

    That’s not JFK, it’s Louis Walsh!

  • lesh says:

    If it was Kinnear, he surely wouldn’t be daft enough to say he was on his way back to London, to ‘work from home’.

    Wouldn’t he?

  • Brian says:

    Hopefully this is not going to be yet another wasted day spent trainspotting.
    Everyone else flies around the globe to save time. Mind could have been coach travel.

    It really is about time a European super league was formed so that no-mark clubs like Newcastle & “Migglesbrough” let alone Sunderland could fight it out amongst themselves in a different league like they do in Scotland. The Premier League should really just be the preserve of the creme del a creme not perpetual also-rans who add nothing to the spectacle. Bored of playing teams like those mentioned above & it can only be a matter of time before those in the ivory towers in London and Europe decree that such irritants are surplus to top flight requirements. There will also be no promotion into the European Super League so thank your lucky stars you’ll be able to save yourselves from continual embarrassment & you can play your local rivals 4 times a year & have a realistic chances of winning the no-mark league & qualifying for the Europa League with all Europe’s other mediocre clubs.

    • MallorcaMag says:

      You do realise that will mean Arsenal getting beaten 16 times a year by Chelsea,Spurs, West Ham, and Fulham.

  • Belgian Football says:

    It’s Jelle Vossen. The striker from KRC Genk!
