Joe Kinnear's self-proclaimed return to Newcastle United has not gone down at all well in the north-east, and local paper the Chronicle, reporting on events, has summed up the feeling neatly in a cheeky front page.
They tossed around several ideas, apparently, and this was the design they settled on:
Taking snippets of supporters' comments under the headline WHAT A JOKE, they write: "Hard to imagine a more stupid decision... For the love of our Toon, Nooooo way... It's a bit late for an April Fool... Kinnear can only add to the laughing stock that is Newcastle United... It's finally time to throw in the towel..." continuing on the whole way across the page.
But here at World of Sport, we have to confess that we prefer the mock-up of the front page that the Chronicle were working on, and didn't go with:
And bear in mind, these front pages were all put together before Kinnear claimed he was smarter than Newcastle fans in a talkSPORT interview.
