Kinnear was bombed out at Nottingham Forest and Luton Town because he lived in the past with tactics from a bygone era.
He was ... and still is ... clueless!
But today he blames Newcastle´s sad plight on his predecessors and claims he is sick of "carrying the can".
Kinnear: "I've inherited this.
"They are not my players, everybody has forgotten that.
"But our biggest problem is a lack of strength in depth. Why wasn't it addressed by the last manager (Keegan) or the manager before him (Allardyce)?
"I am carrying the can for it. It is as simple as that."
"I have spelled out the gravity of the situation.
"I say, 'We're not prepared for anything like the disaster we face and you've got to realise the importance of that'.
"I want to be judged on what I bring in. The depth of the first-team squad is not right at the moment.
"We must look to stay up this season and have a big clear-out in the summer and address everything completely differently.
"I lie in bed and worry and dread this situation. I'm a proud fella and I don't want to be relegated."
And the Geordies are proud people ... sick of seeing our proud club ground into the shit by Mike Ashley and his puppet manager.
THE SOONER BOTH OF THEM GO ... THE BETTER!
