Twittergate rumbles on as Pardew responds and Enrique gets fined

Alan Pardew admonishes Jose Enrique over Twitter comments.
Pardew still wants Jose to stay
Newcastle United hit back at Jose Enrique with a fine and a telling off after his recent renegade comments on Twitter.

This Jose Enrique nonsense is a sour old kettle of fish and no mistake. The player is clearly upset by the way the club is being run but whether or not Twitter is the way to go about expressing that is another matter.

In response, it seems that Enrique has been hit with a £100,000 fine for his comments. According to reports in such esteemed places as The Sun, Pardew was ready to leave Enrique with a mere slap on the wrist for his digressions but Ashley insisted on a two-week fine. There is no substantial evidence that Ashley did in fact make such a command of Pardew and it could easily just be the press stirring things a bit, but Pardew has responded to Jose’s Tweet by saying:

Jose was wrong to put those comments up and I told him.

It’s a good offer which we have given him and maybe the frustration of the situation got the better of him.

I want him to stay, he’s a good lad but this didn’t reflect well on him. It was a mistake, he knows it and so do I.(more…)
