Newcastle's season of hell

Djibril Cisse


Kinnear takes his place in the dug-out after defeats to West Ham and Blackburn leave Newcastle 19th in the Premier League table.

He hits the headlines after swearing 52 times during a news conference in early October, and accuses the national media of harbouring hostility towards him.
