Vinnie Jones Blasts Toon For Having 'No Characters'!

Vinnie Jones: "People are slaughtering the bloke, but look at his record.

"When I went back to Wimbledon they finished top half of the Premier League every season under him and reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and League Cup in 1997.

"We didn't even have our own ground to play in, we had to play at Crystal Palace.

"Short of Peter Pan or Paul McKenna, they have the next best thing in Joe Kinnear.

"He can't wave a magic wand and turn results around and take them into the Champions League because anyone who has seen their players knows that he doesn't have much to work with.

"They don't have any characters in the team. If they do, Joe will find them.

"He's a good man, give him a chance and he will take them away from danger. They are in a mess, but don't blame Joe for that. That's down to his predecessors."

And what is Vinnie Jones remembered for? Squeezing Gazza's nuts; getting set off four seconds after the whistle went to start a match; and hitting the big time in Hollywood.

And that probably sums him up.

He was never a Michael Owen, Nicky Butt, Habib Beye, Damien Duff, Alan Smith or Mark Viduka ... but hey ... I forgot ... apparently Kinnear "hasn't got much to work with".
