Whoever Thought Soccer Could Be So Fun ?

Posted by Mike on October 3, 2008

The guys at Deadspin, got wind of the press conference that Newcastle United interim head coach Joe Kinnear had with the British media. And let’s just say he puts Lou Pinella to shame, and makes the infamous Tommy Lasorda gone crazy interview, look like one of those utopian Tony Dungy conferences. The coach reportedly swore 52 times in five minutes. Not even Eminem can do that. Via deadspin:

Joe Kinnear: Which one is Simon Bird [Daily Mirror’s north-east football writer]?
Simon Bird: Me.
JK: You’re a cunt.
SB: Thank you.

JK: You are trying to fucking undermine my position already.
SB: Have you read it, it doesn’t say that. I knew you knew they were having a day off.
JK: Fuck off. Fuck off. It’s your last fucking chance.
SB: You read the copy? It doesn’t say that you didn’t know.
JK: What about the headline, you think that’s a good headline?
SB: I didn’t write the headline, you read the copy.
JK: You are negative bastards, the pair of you.

JK: I have done it before. It is going to my fucking lawyers. So are about three others. If they can find something in it that is a court case it is going to court. I am not fucking about. I don’t talk to fucking anybody. It is raking up stories. You are fucking so fucking slimy you are raking up players that I got rid of. Players that I had fallen out with. You are not asking Robbie Earle, because he is sensible. You are not asking Warren Barton? No. Because he is fucking sensible. Anyone who had played for me for 10 years at any level … [but] you will find some cunt that …
Other journalist: How long is your contract for Joe?
JK: None of your business.

Steve Brenner (football writer for the Sun): We are all grown men and can come in here and sit around and talk about football, but coming in here and calling people cunts?
JK: Why? Because I am annoyed. I am not accepting that. If it is libellous, it is going to where I want it to go.
Newcastle press officer: What has been said in here is off the record and doesn’t go outside.

    It’s too bad Bellicheck doesn’t start his press conferences like that except he just asks who John Tommase is and puts the word fat in front of cunt.
