Joe Kinnear: "I would love to go out and sign the big stars, but we are not in a position to do that right now.

"The credit crunch has hit Mike Ashley pretty hard and we are identifying the players who we can get.

"At the moment I just wish I could sign them, because progress is so slow in the transfer window.

"It is not the most positive message I can send out the fans - but it is the truth.

"It is a severe test for me, but you are put on the planet to be tested.

"Although it is not very nice picking up all these injuries, you just have to get on with it."
