When your opening press conference is described as infamous or sensational, you can probably be pretty proud of yourself, but this wasn’t the case for Joe Kinnear…

Just four days after being appointed Newcastle boss, the Irishman made headlines by swearing 52 times during the conference, targeting the press amid rumours he failed to turn up for training on his first day in charge.

This was not your standard managerial unveiling and it is no surprise that his second spell at Newcastle didn’t last much longer than his first.
