Kinnear Lucrative Deal? How Frightening Is That!
But many fans I have spoken to have said the season was over the second Kevin Keegan could take no more from Mike Ashley and packed his bags.
Kinnear is threatening to stay ... as is Mike Ashley ... and I wish to God this season was over, with us still a Premiership club.
Joe Kinnear: "I know what my own future is. I'm just mulling over things in my head at the moment. I have been offered a very lucrative contract.
"Mike Ashley, Derek Llambias and I, we've sat down and talked about taking the club forward and about reinvesting in the club in the summer.
"But I said to them that first and foremost, we have to work hard and establish ourselves as a Premier League side and get away from the relegation fight.
"I really don't need any more distractions than that. What I suggested to the club was that we all sit down in the summer and look at each other and say what direction do we want to take the club in, refinancing it, letting players go and bringing in my own players.
"I'll also see what my wife and family have to say about the situation of moving up here permanently."
