It looks like Joe Kinnear played Jose Enrique last Saturday when Jose was not fully fit.
Jose Enrique – played while injured last Saturday at Blackburn Rovers
And today Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear has taken some responsibility for Jose Enrique’s poor performance at Ewood Park last Saturday.
Joe told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:
“I brought Jose Enrique back in and he looked well off the pace.““He didn’t train all week but there was nobody else.”
“I could drop down to the youth team but we just aren’t blessed with cover in all positions.”
But either Steven Taylor or David Edgar can also play at left back – David was at left back when he scored that great goal against Manchester United two years ago.
So while both of them would prefer to play on the right, they can both do more than a decent job too at left back, but that’s another reason, if we didn’t have enough of them, that we need to bring in a left-back in January.
Kevin Keegan was saying that last May, and we still haven’t brought one in, mainly because of the complete ineptitude of the Newcastle Board, since the talented former Chairman Chris Mort left the club last May.
