You must be Joe-king

What's more disturbing than the thought of JFK being our interim manager? Yes, you guessed it - the thought of JFK becoming our permanent manager. Admittedly the man himself hasn't quite said as much. "This is a great chance for me to put my name back in the frame", he's quoted as saying in today's Star. "And if I do a good job here, who knows what might be around the corner?"

The horrifying thing is that, with completion of the sale of the club still some way off (despite the insistence of Seymour Pierce's Keith Harris* that it's progressing "extremely well") there really is a good chance JFK will be in charge a lot longer than just until the end of November as first thought - perhaps even to the end of the season.

Of course, all this begs the question: what exactly in the situation and circumstances at St James's Park has reignited JFK's passion for management? Surely it would be enough to put you off for life? The man's clearly a masochist - and so, in that sense if none other, a prime candidate for the job.

* Fair play to Mr Harris for taking time out of his busy schedule to hawk us around to the highest bidder, given that he's also trying to flog Everton and instill self-confidence in a big fluffy green duck wearing a nappy...
