The bizarre saga of Newcastle continues. Its too bad that the FA is not launching its own bailout plan.
In a game of musical chairs, Terry Venables ducked out of the coaching job before Newcastle turned to Dennis O'Leary booted out of Villa unceremoniously two years ago. In the end it was Joe Kinnear last seen at Nottingham Forest in 2004 came out of nowhere.
The appointment provided a much needed moment of mirth for suffering Toon fans.
Its as one of the comments pointed out a lipstick on a pig moment.
And Kinnear admits he will be an unpopular choice on Tyneside: “The fans will be disappointed, I understand that, but I can’t do anything about. I will just be doing my very best because I am desperate to get back into the game.”
