Is Jose Enrique Planning To Stay At Newcastle?

Jose Enrique has been saying some very good things about Newcastle and the famous Geordie fans today.

Jose Enrique – is the Spanish U21 International planning to stay on Tyneside?

Jose says the Newcastle fans love football even more than life, and he even seems happy, in fact he seems very happy at Newcastle United.

But we don’t know if this is a prelude to him leaving Newcastle, or whether he’s starting to decide he should stay on Tyneside, which of course we hope he does – we really hope he does because if would be a huge coup for the club to keep Jose on Tyneside.

Let’s make no mistake about that.

Here’s the interview he gave to the BBC today – and you can make up your own mind.

Please vote and and let us know, given this interview, if you think Jose is planning to stay around at Newcastle, and to be quite truthful we’re not at all sure.

    i really hope that jose stays. he is a outstanding LB who could get into alot of the best teams around. im still a bit doubtful of jose staying, and if he does go then i wish him good luck for both club and country.

    If L`pool or Inter offer him m0re than £50k a week he`ll be off. Like Judas did, plus it`s obvious Ashley won`t brake the wage ceiling for any player. Quite right too or there`ll be a queue expecting the same and we`ll be back where we started, in the mire. Players should have a basic and performance related bonuses as should the manager and coaches.We might just see a little more effort!!

    Lets be honest all the signs are hes is going, and who can really blame him, we saw signs of improvement this season and they sacked the manager sold our best player and despite the fact the say they will re invest and do this and that we have heard all this before part of their “exercises in public realations” good luck to him. tiote will in all likleyhood follow, barton wont sign his new contract withier because players want to play where they can achieve, thats not newcastle anymore.

    Ashleyt want us run like his shops cheap with no qaulity inside, and eveything on sale all year round

    Guys. Enrique will stay if they want him.
    Remember he lives in Newcastle, his family is settled in the area too!

    The decision is with Ashley, so if Enrique leaves, the club have sold him to raise cash, simple as that!!

    I think he’s screaming out that he wants to stay and throwing down the gauntlet for Ashley. Then again I’m an optimist, although I’ve struggled the last 3 years.

    It’s a nice interview, especially as he took the time to have a sly dig at Viduka and Owen. It shows that he understands what fans and clubs need from thier players. I think there is a small chance he might stay now.

    NO player is safe at NUFC. If an offer comes in, that matches FCB’s valuation of that player, or beats it, the player is sold – its as simple as that.

    As long as FCB is making money and the club doesn’t fall apart, he’s as happy as a pig in shit!! It makes no difference to him at all.

    European ambition doesnt exist – unless it happens despite FCB’s antics in transfer market! This summer will really show us just what he intends for the club!!

    Let`s be honest. They are all average players. Tiote, Barton, Kevin Nolan, Gutierrez, Shola Ameobi, Coloccini, etc. Enrique is one of them. He is a very average player. Although, I believe they all do their best and sometimes they play well(especially against teams that are bellow us on the table). Take the match against Liverpool for example. The players couldn`t cross a ball properly, not to mention the set pieces. How many opportunities did the team create to score a goal? actually one with Barton near the end of the first time.In my opinion we should sell Enrique and get more money to spend in the next transfer window, we could have got approximately 45 million pounds, and if we could sell 3 more players we could have got more than 50 million pounds, wich in my opinion is a very good amount of money to spend in the transfer window. We need at least 6 new players that are keen to play at Newcastle United. If Shane Ferguson get more matches he will play like Enrique or even better.

    This is the same rhetoric we’ve heard time and again.
    “I’m happy…” “if I have to….”

    The lad wants to play at Newcastle – maybe, maybe not.

    Fact – he’s as good as Ashley Cole and everybody knows that. He will get sky high wages elsewhere in a year’s time.

    Bottom line, if Newcastle aspire to get say into the top 6, we need a backbone of top class players being paid market rates. it’s nonsensical joping we can get half a dozen players at say £3.5 like Cheik Tiote. And even if we did… we’d have to up there wages to keep them. there is gulf between the top 6 and the rest of the PL.

    Where do you want to put us Mr A? Up there with them or with the also rans?

    If you want to compete at the top – sign Enrique on a 6.5 yr contract like Cheik on wages reflect his status.

    So with Carroll gone and Jose soon to follow and some of the names mentioned as possible signings…… Is Ashley preparing for life in the Championship again because he and Pardew could quite easily take us back there.

    people go on about carroll leaving but he left injured so he wouldnt have played in most of our games really since he left he has only played in 3 or 4 for liverpool plus he has only proved to hit the goals this season next season he might not score as many. and before anyone says owt the championship goals only came cause its a lower league i dont miss carroll at all. as soon as someone starts to bang them in no one will mention carroll i say 35 million for him is a total joke but hey its the clubs money now we can get a better striker than him in

    Why do you and other fans judge AP and MA on paper talk?

    The facts are this season back in the Prem we’ve signed Tiote and Ben Arfa, tied Tiote to a 6.5 year contract and offered Nolan, Barton and Enrique contract extensions.

    Yes we’ve sold Carroll for £35M but if that money spent makes us a better team then its good business.

    You and the likes of Graeme, MacToon, awc88 etc., wanna shut up negging, stop believing the papers and wait until we actually sign players.

    You might be pleasntly surprised.

    bills-son, we are all entitled to opinions and as far as I know that’s what this blog was set up for.

    You also take things a little to serious and cannot tell a tongue in cheek remark if it bit you on the nose 😉

    @ bills-son, great post.

    The facts are that since we’ve been back in the prem, we’ve done a lot of good good things, and one bad thing in selling Andy. Hughton didn’t deserve the sack, but if Ashley wants to appoint someone he trusts with his money, fair play to him.

    Everyone’s spent the last few days going nuts because the papers have linked us with some average players.

    They’ve also linked us with Gervinho, Gamerio, Sow, etc. lol

    Am I the only sone seeing this as a plea to Ashley for two things:
    1) More money in his wages – if he says he’s happy to stay but also happy to go, Ashley will probs offer more than if he says he’d LOVE to stay.
    2) To buy players – again, if he says he’s LOVE to stay, then Ashley may think all the players (and fans) are content with spending nothing.

    Before yesterday I thought Enrique was gone, but now I see this as more of a Wayne Rooney ‘I want to leave rather than a definite I WANT to leave’ if that makes sense.

    He will leave, he wants to play for Spain and we don’t seem to be on their radar in terms of who they watch. I don’t blame him for going, i just hope for a few things:

    1. We do not sell him to Liverpool
    2. We reinvest all the transfer money in the team and not just a cheap left back.
    3. He moves abroad to a club playing in the champs league otherwise it is a indication of money grabbing again.

    On another note, i hope Liverpool miss out on Europa.

    Can’t be bothered with the whole will he won’t he. I’d prefer it if he told us his intentions and his reasons. If he sees moving as a chance of progressing his career then good luck to him. Not many would turn down the chance of going to a team higher up in the league or another huge team outside of England such as Bayern Munich. Whatever happens he has been good this year, probably second best player, just behind Tiote. So thanks for what you’ve done so far but just tell us man!

    Hutton 5m
    Samba 10m
    Warnock 3m (if jose goes)

    The midfield has work rate no real vision
    Larsson free
    Kranjcar 6m

    need pace and vision up front
    Elmander free
    Agbonlahor 10m

    also add Ben arfa and Gosling to this a lot of quality premiership experience,not saying this would push for top six but would probably guarantee a top 10 finish which should be the next realistic step

    I’d like to direct anybody who is whining about Newcastle being a “selling club” (yes I know, rival site and all that shite):

    As for Enrique, it’s a lot worse in print than it is in the vocal world. I honestly don’t think he wants to go, like he says, he isn’t even thinking about his contract and even mentioned his contract expiry at the end of next season. I reckon he’ll stay.

    How can people judge pardew with what he’s done at past clubs , he’s at our club now and in his 1st 17 games has a better record than chris huoghTon who everyone thought was doing a great job, so 17 games most without huoghtons get out of jail card Andy Carroll pretty impressive and you moan you want more communication AP comments on near enough everything and gets dissed for it – come on guys let’s just get behind the team and manager
