Even if Kinnear's slip-of-the-tongue wasn't altogether accidental Charlie N'Zombie, a player of mild promise, big sulks and little end product, had burned his bridges at Newcastle anyway. Whatever he thinks of his own ability, he's no David Ginola or Laurent Robert - not even a Duff or Milner. Playing for Wigan in front of 16,000 people's not exactly the Champions League, is it?
As for Given, good luck to the bloke. He's going to need it.
