Joe Kinnear (now retired)


Recommended Posts

I hope I don’t offend anyone with this but Alzheimer’s/Dementia is as bad or as worse than cancer for those suffering with it. In my line of work so many of my customers’ relatives have died of it and we try and donate as much as we can to the various charities, it’s a horrific disease and I know it’s now a big talking point in football, but more needs to be done and looked into. Again, Kinnear, as bad as he was for us, he’s a human-being and by all accounts a decent one so again I wish him nothing but the best, but knowing this disease, it’s grim grim grim from here on in sadly. :(

Really sad news this. Obviously a passionate and well-intentioned bloke and an awful thing that you'd not wish on anyone. Hope he and his family get as much support as possible.

 

His ludicrous DoF return to one side, I still maintain we'd have stayed up in 2009 if he had saw out the season and we didn't endure Hughton then Shearer from WBA away onwards. He was embarrassing and brash but I don't think quite as bad a manager as some we've had (Carver, McClaren, even Bruce) - I still all these years later think he'd have drawn his way to a safe finish.

I’ll give him this, he fought for us every match, he was very positive and talked us up and how big a job this was for him and how lucky he was, even returning as the DOF or whatever his title was. I recommend people watch a Wimbledon documentary made a few years ago, sorry I can’t rename it, but he came over ever so well.

Personally I would rather have cancer than Alzheimers, just from seeing my mum and the people in here residential home, it literally takes your soul. It’s heartbreaking .
