Comic Newcastle: Kinnear faces two match touchline ban
The tragicomedy that is Newcastle United has become even more bizarre with the news that interim boss Joe Kinnear faces a two match touchline ban for calling a linesman ‘coco the clown’ back in 2005 when he was managing Nottingham Forest.
With Newcastle owner Mike Ashley desperately trying to sell off the club as soon as possible and reports of a bid from a Nigerian consortium, there is the chance that Kinnear could be on his bike before he serves his time in the stands.
Kinnear is due to take charge of training tomorrow after watching Newcastle lose 2-1 at home to Blackburn. Club captain Michael Owen said that the players’ confidence has hit rock bottom, but they will have to try and turn things around quickly before it’s too late.
