With the shortage of players at Newcastle right now , there is too much pressure being put on the many very good young players at the Newcastle club.
Harris Vuckic – one of the Magpies top young guns
Or so says 23 year-old Jose Enrique, who is very defensive of the young players on Tyneside, who were summarily out-played in the Carling Cup last Tuesday by Peterborough.
Jose said today:
“We do have young players who are very good,” “But there is a lot of pressure on them to come in if we lose players.”
“I know how difficult it is when you come into a team and there are seven or eight of you stepping in together, at the same time.”
“In your mind you feel like you have to show something when you get that chance and maybe try too hard. We do have some good young players here.”
“But I think there is too much pressure on them because this club has to get straight back up to the Premier League.”
We don’t know what Mike Ashley will do if he remains at the club for any length of time, but maybe the very best we can hope for is a couple more loan players.
But there is also a distinct possibility that once the Keegan affair is sorted, hopefully this coming Monday, Barry Moat may be in a position to finally buy his home town club, with financial backing from America.
But the size of the Keegan award may put a dent in that, or so we are told.
If Moat does take over, and Alan Shearer is brought in, we would hope that a number of new players will be brought in to further shore up the chances of the famous Tyneside club being promoted next May, at the very first attempt.
