Ashley's Official Line On Kinnear?

... were interested to see how his "sports editor" covered the Joe Kinnear sacking.

Apparently the reason for the sacking was: "a failing to deliver a signing in two transfer windows", and the story was as hard-hitting as anywhere else.

So we cannot slag off the Fat Man for hiding the truth THIS time.

Sports Direct: "Newcastle's director of football Joe Kinnear has left the club after failing to deliver a signing in two transfer windows.

"The former Toon boss was appointed last June and told critics to "judge him on his signings".

"Kinnear's appointment was behind Derek Llambias resigning in the summer while there was talk of a rift with boss Alan Pardew.

"The 67-year-old lasted just seven months at the club with the final straw appearing to be the chants of "get out of our club" at the weekend following the 3-0 defeat to Sunderland.

"Newcastle signed two players in Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong during Kinnear's tenure but both were on the radar of the club before his appointment anyway."
