Speaking on Twitter today, Jose Enrique indirectly lambasted the club’s owner Mike Ashley and the clubs transfer policy. Some of you may recall Pardew being unhappy with the Spaniard’s conduct on Twitter after announcing to fans he would not be taking part in the upcoming game against Spurs and his deletion of his Twitter account but it seems Jose has decided to reopen and this account has been confirmed by both Wayne Routledge and our fake account killer Danny Simpson.
Mike Ashley has been well known to be an admirer of the Arsenal model, bringing young players in cheap via extensive scouting networks and love of the French market which for a club that is recently promoted is a high risk, high payout gamble but if we get something wrong, we may very well be up the Tyne without a paddle.
In Spanish, the left back said:
“The Club is letting go of all the main players. Seriously, do you think is the fault of the players? Andy, etc etc Nolan?”
“This club will never fight again to be among the top 6 with this policy.”
“I think you fans are the best and you deserve the best. Not what they are doing with the club. Thanks to everyone for supporting me.”
And then, allowing me to step away from Google Translate:
“They give the money I have already. They lie all the time. But is no for money is because they don’t want.”
“They don’t want spend in the club and bring quality players that’s why everybody go.”
No doubt El Toro will be in for a reprimand given that he appears to be discussing contract details with the Geordie fans and, of course, Mike “I don’t know what you’re talking about, there were never any pies to begin with” Ashley is well known for his disdain of his staff being mean to him – and even those of us who line his pockets week in and out with our hard earned cash, as he proved in the seemingly politically motivated move of disbanding Level 7, or the Singing Section.
Derek “I’ll be in Aspers” Llambias was also verbally abused at the now famous friendly against Darlington FC, as he walked into the wrong door and entered the drinking area with the Newcastle fans. Turns out that even with all of his Casino management credentials and glasses he still struggles to tell the difference between signs saying “VIP” and “Bar”.
It’s easy to become a favourite at Newcastle United. We like players who give 100% and can do the jobs they’re being paid thousands upon thousands a week to do, and that is something Jose Enrique does in bulk. He has passion, ability and heart and after he had settled into the style of play here in England, he quickly became an important first team player along with the likes of Colocinni, Kevin Nolan and *spit* Andy Carroll.
One thing is certain: The playing staff have the same lack of communication as the fans do, and that is simply unacceptable.
