We're not Joe-king! Joe Kinnear is the new boss at Newcastle United
Flabbergasted Toon fans will be pinching themselves after the latest twist in the Toon saga after Joe Kinnear was appointed as Newcastle United boss today until the end of October.
The former Wimbledon and Luton boss is renowned for building up team spirit on little or no resources and continued the fantastic work of the crazy gang long after the miracles worked by Harry Bassett and Bobby Gould.
Yet the news sent shockwaves around United's training ground today as players and reporters absorbed the news.
Whether Big Joe can lift the Toon troops and pick up victory against Blackburn tomorrow remains to be seen.
But United fans, still reeling after the exit of Kevin Keegan, must be wondering where it leaves the club going into a long hard winter.
Kinnear's last job was at Nottingham Forest where the 61-year-old was sacked in 2004.
