Joe Kinnear's not taking any guff from those swine

Have you seen Joe Kinnear go absolutely apeshit on the English press? Here's the link to the Guardian's transcript. How funny is this?! I mean, the devolution of Newcastle into a third-rate sideshow – at best – is becoming painful to watch. But this work from Kinnear, who is really unhappy with the press he's been getting, is out of this world. Here's how he started his Thursday press conference:

JK Which one is Simon Bird [Daily Mirror's north-east football writer]?

SB Me.

JK You're a cunt.

SB Thank you.

JK Which one is Hickman [Niall, football writer for the Express]? You are out of order. Absolutely fucking out of order. If you do it again, I am telling you you can fuck off and go to another ground. I will not come and stand for that fucking crap. No fucking way, lies. Fuck, you're saying I turned up and they [Newcastle's players] fucked off.

I've scolded some (i.e. Carl) for using the word "cunt" in the comments section, but I'm making a one-time-only exception for use of the word "cunt" on this blog for this post only. How brilliant is that start to the press conference?! A completely unhinged man, and the whole world gets to watch. Amazing.

UPDATE: There's audio! The Daily Mirror has a heavily beeped audio clip up on their football site. Regrettably, they beeped the "You're a cunt" line and the exchange makes it hard to hear it clearly. However, the whole thing is a gem. An absolute gem.

And you? You're a cunt.

This is great, great, stuff. He oughta cut off their big toes, cram 'em into a trash can and roll 'em down Main Street.

Funny, too ... you beat me to the punch on that one!

The audio is exceptional. It's like that Lee Elia rant from the '80s about the Cubs fans. Grab some headphones and listen to it. You won't regret it.
