Joe Kinnear is a gift

Joe Kinnear is really good at being a director of football which is why he tried to sign one of his own players during a scouting trip to Birmingham.  Hoorah!

Shane Ferguson was just minding his own business while on loan from Newcastle when Uncle Joe came to town to see if his legendary scouting skills could be put to good use.  Spotting a rare and unpolished gem amongst the 21 other players on the pitch, Kinnear decided that he had to strike while the iron was hot or miss out on the next Lionel Messi.  The Sunday People said:
“Ferguson had a particularly good game that night and Joe Kinnear told one of our officials he was interested in signing him.
“At first our guy thought he was joking but then he realised Kinnear did not know Ferguson was already a Newcastle player.”
Wow.  He just keeps giving out prizes.  He's like that vending machine in my last work were one day it just decided to pour out 4 bags of Quavers for no reason - they weren't even stuck.  That was a good day.  Except for later when the wolves dragged my family in the woods
