You Can Help Persuade Jose Enrique To Stay On Tyneside


Even though Jose Enrique has been forecast to leave Newcastle for several months now, the player was given a good welcome by the fans on Saturday at St. James’ Park.

Jose Enrique – excellent for Newcastle over the last two seasons

Apart from a wayward tweet that Jose made while on the American tour, he has kept his counsel well, and hasn’t been much of a problem to the Newcastle club.

And of course whatever happens with Jose, and he is till likely to leave to join liverpool soon, he has been magnificent for Newcastle over the last two seasons.

That excellent play started with the promotion season, when he was judged Newcastle’s Player of the Season, and then he helped the team last year consolidate their position in mid-table of the Premier League.

One of Jose’s major concerns at Newcastle is the lack of investment in new players, and Alan Pardew is hoping the signing of Gabriel Obertan, which is imminent, and perhaps one more player this week will help Jose decide to stay on Tyneside.

Pardew has talked about Jose over the weekend, and he had this to say to the local Newcastle press today:

“Jose was in good shape against Fiorentina and you know I want him to stay.” “I can’t make that statement any more clear – no fan out there wants him to stay here more than me.”

“Jose will determine his own future.”  “I thought Jose was brilliant and he was up against top players and none of them got any joy out of him. His pace was there.”

“What you saw was a player who has worked hard in the background, even though he hasn’t played recently.”

We don’t know if Pardew’s hopes are simply that or whether he has had some commitment from Jose if Newcastle sign some players and show they are serious about building a good new team, he could stay.

Certainly the acquisition of Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux and Demba Ba are three good players who will make Newcastle a lot more skillful than last season,  and with Ben Arfa and Dan Gosling coming back from long term injuries, they are like two new players too.

We hope Jose will stay, but Alan says Newcastle are not the only club that are in danger of losing some of their best players:

“You hear lots of rumors and when you are out of contract almost, players are vulnerable.”  “When you have players in that situation you are vulnerable.”

“We are almost in the identical situation as Arsenal. They are vulnerable.” “They have Fabregas and Nasri – both of them being hunted by top clubs. And we have the same situation here.”

“I’m afraid that is the way it will always be until we are big enough and strong enough to compete with those top teams. We all know we aren’t near them at the moment.”

There’s a chance, although it’s an outside chance to be honest, that Enrique will finally decide to stay on Tyneside, and if you want to send him a message to ask him to stay at Newcastle you can do so here.

There’s no harm in trying, and Jose is hardly a trouble-maker at the club,  and of course he’s an excellent player.

    Will give it a go, but it’s hard to stand in the way of a players aspirations and ambitions.
    If he goes, i’ll wish him luck.
    If he stays, i’ll buy him all the women i can get. Plus he’s one for the Hall of Fame for us imo.

    The french trialist who played for us in the 8-2 win against middlesboro reserves played the first half as a right back. No chance it was Sanogo. Probably an unknown.

    Agreed. I won’t begrudge the bloke, he’s been great for us, I really hope he stays though.

    I thought that Sanago stuff was too good to be true. All seemed a bit weird with him not being named on the website’s match report. You never know though, eh?

    You’ve misread that part mate, it was Airey who played RB, he’s done it before.

    From the official site. They were just trying him out on a different position to see where he is most effective. Not Sanogo who is definately a striker and it would be dumb to play him, a fully capped youth international, at right back? He would probably walked off the field insulted.

    Most likely he’s just an unknown.

    Yea just noticed. I probably mis-read that part. It was Airey. My bad. But i just can’t believe a player of his reputation would be allowed on a trial for us. No chance.

    Yeah, if it was him, it’d be extatic, but i cant see him having a trial, as he’s pretty proven already.
    Altho he has scored two goals in two matches, must’ve got something in him.
    We’ll know within the week me thinks. They’re never here for more than 1-2 weeks.

    The #NUFC side featured a French trialist up front. Would be signed as a reserves player – should be more details later.

    Sums it up. Sanago is a first team quality player and no reserves. Stupid Cwarr07 at it again.

    ilovetoon8788,

    I still don’t see where it states your claim on the official site. I read it earlier and don’t remember a mention of a trialist playing at RB. It doesn’t mention any trialist at all, but he did score.

    yes can’t wait on paper we have potentially a very good squad/side probably could do with a really good strong not very injury prone cb like Dann, Cahill, Samba or Shawcross

    Found a picture of Yaya Sanogo:
    http://www.lequipe.fr/Football/FootballFicheJoueur35293.html
    And here is a picture taken from a Newcastle training:http://www.nufc.co.uk/page/News/Gallery/0,,10278~2411410,00.html

    look at the player wearing nr 49, early in the picture gallery. Is it the same player ?

    I think it could be him…he’s with the other French players Ba, Cabaye and Marveaux. Would be great if it is him.

    Why bother trying to persuade him to stay? He is going to either bail at the last minute leaving us in the lurch or see out his contract without showing true commitment. The quicker he goes the better

    Seydou Doumbia did gestures at the Zenit fans in the match against them. May get a ban and make a move more likely. Who knows!

    People talking about relegation need to calm down. Blackburn are far worse than us. You got the newly promoted teams and Wigan.

    Wolves not mentioned because of Roger Johnson even though he did relegate with Birmingham. IMHO I think we are just a couple of players short to fight for at least one of the Cups. That’s our shot for Europe as I see it.

    Shame though, because if we really did spend most of the money we could be up there. Excited for Saturday.

    Jose would stay if he got a call up to Spain! Someone needs to do a better job of letting the spanish coaches know!

    If he goes he must go play in Champs league, something them dirty rotten bin eaters can’t provide.

    I think Enrique is gone, why would Pardew go to Holland to watch Pieters. And perhaps it was not coincedence that Pieters did not play. Normally he is their 1st choice LB.

    If I would take another player from PSV, I should go for Lens, he has got pace, technique and he is a good finisher.
