This Is Best Period Of My Two Years On Tyneside – Enrique


Jose Enrique has said today that he sends videos of  the Newcastle matches back to his folks in Spain, so they can still watch him play in England, now that Newcastle are not in the Premier League, whose game are beamed live around the world, of course.

Jose Enrique – now a fixture on Tyneside – and he even likes the weather (?)

Enrique told the Evening Chronicle today:

“There are more people that watch the Championship in Spain now!” “My family enjoy watching me play, I can send them matches.”

“It’s only really important to them. Nobody is really interested in it Spain, so otherwise they don’t see it on TV over there.”

Enrique says the Blackpool (who beat us!) and Plymouths of the CC Championship, are not household names either in Spain or in  his own eyes, but he knows no team can be under-estimated, as the team found out to their peril last Wednesday night at Bloomfield Road.

Jose continued:

“I think the quality is OK but I think there will only be about six or seven teams out of the whole division who can really say they have a chance of playing in the Premier League next year.”

“But saying that, I think that any team can beat any other in a one off match. That has happened already to us. The difficulty level is the same for each game.”

“If people had told us two months ago that we’d be where we are, then maybe we wouldn’t have believed them.”  “As you would expect when a team is near the top the atmosphere is still good and we feel we can get back there very soon.”

“This is the best period of my two years here. It’s been great to be winning games consecutively until Blackpool and now we want to build up another hot streak.”

Jose has settled down on Tyneside, and he is now a fixture at the club.

We’re a little surprised he is still at the club, after we were relegated, but he could be on Tyneside for quite a while,  as he epitomizes the passion and fight that Newcastle fans just love to see in their players.

He’s also a good player. 😀

    Damn, I forgot my stinger missile in my other trousers too. How come I didnt see that hitman, and I work next to the heliport? Anyway, back to the subject matter, Enrique has looked great this season. He deffo gives us a better option at left back than one of the out of place players who wasted last season there. The way he makes overlapping runs reminds me a bit of Oli Bernard before he knacked himself big time.

    I don’t think we are really trying with these loan players…all seems a bit half arsed if you ask me…we just stumble along with no real momentum when it comes to recruitment.

    Agree with fellow bloggers regarding us getting loan players in, why could we not have made it conditional on the Duff sale that we got Kamara on loan?

    Going up the Tyne was he? Makes a change from taking the club up the Swanee!

    So, what’s he here for? A signing? Sign off the payroll?

    More like his monthly visit to Greggs to order a container load of their seconds before the pensioners form a queue half-four!

    Improved a lot since his arrival.
    Guy has deceptive pace, could become a pretty good attacking wing back, with some improvement in his shooting and crossing.
    Certainly part of the future of this club.

    @Hitman, just seen a wokka come out of the heliport, it was a Dauphan if that helps? It didnt look particularly burdened, but they tend to be in use by most of the corporate sector these days, so I dunno if it was ashleys like.

    Lesh (15) – my thoughts exactly – I said as much on a previous thread. Is there anyone of any significance at Barrack Road these days?

    Mags (21) there’s the people who sell the pies and burgers (those left anyway), and possibly the people cleaning the bogs after a match..

    In terms of senior management and key decision makers I think most are following the hoppings around conning people out of there hard earned hook-a-duck money!

    For NUFC, and I don’t know why, it’s always been difficult for Spanish players to adjust to life with the team. But Enrique has been progressing nicely I think. It has taken him awhile and maybe some competition for his place would make him step up his game even more. At least that’s what I would hope. Anyway, if Ashley finally sells and I buy a new shirt, it just might have his name on it.

    re Mags
    I totally agree we should made it conditional that we got the player we wanted that being Kamara as part of the deal.
    Re Enrique one of the best buys, he was a bit on the rough side initially how he has blossomed & gives 100% & very effected down the left side.
