Joe Kinnear has been offered a three year deal to take over as director of football at Newcastle. The twitter reaction has been incredulous to say the least:
There's madness, there's utter madness, then there's the potential decision to make Joe Kinnear director of football. Oh my days. #NUFC

There's a joke in here. No, there's a Joe Kinnear! Seems he is heading back to Newcastle in a Director of Football role! JFK is back. #nufc

Joe Kinnear provided the biggest laugh of all time in the Soccernet office. It was one of bemused, amused stupefaction at his appointment.

Is there any chance that Joe Kinnear is Mike Ashley's dad?

"Joe Kinnear" is an anagram of "Inane Joker".
Sorry, couldn't resist. #NUFC

Mike Ashley's ability to continually take the piss out of a football club remains wonderfully intact.
