"You are right, Kinnear is Telling Porkies, but not for the reason you think.
"As everyone by now knows Kinnear despises the press with a passion that is hitherto unknown.
"So some hack makes up a bullshit story about some player perhaps moving to Newcastle. JFK agrees with said story, all the hacks then write bullshit stories about said player.
"Meanwhile JFK is off doing his real business. Far from the hawkish eyes and talon like quills of the lost and bemused flock of failed journalists that are 'sports writers'."
If that is true ... I'm afraid Kinnear is making himself look rather foolish as respected managers such as Walter Smith rubbish his stories.
The fact is ... the press are QUOTING Kinnear ... not publishing speculation, and that makes the Toon boss look a bloody idiot!
