I feel it is worth writing the opening words as they appear in The Guardian's sports section this morning, concerning the case of the interim Newcastle United manager, Joe Kinnear. The audio version, fully uncensored, is here courtesy of the Daily Mirror.
The following is an edited transcript of Newcastle interim manager Joe Kinnear's first official press conference yesterday
JK: Which one of you is Simon Bird? (The Daily Mirror's North East sports writer?"
SB: I am.
JK: You're a cunt.
The story continues in wonderful fashion here.
Clearly Joe is finding the pressure cooker atmosphere of St James's Park a little tough early in his reign. Joe however, will have to go some to beat my all-time favourite, Leyton Orient's John Sitton. Sitton was the manager of struggling Orient who featured in a fly-on-the-wall documentary from the mid 1990s, entitled "Leyton Orient - Yours For A Fiver." You can watch his story here.
