Most of the talk at the moment seems to centred around potential new signings, with news popping up left, right and centre regarding this player and that player and the possibility of a move to Newcastle.

That is fine, I think we all agree that new signings should be on the agenda but we shouldn’t forget an equally important aspect, and that is maintaining the squad we have already and nailing our better players down with new contracts.

We are going through a bit of that at the moment with Steven Taylor, Andy Carroll and Tim Krul all looking set for new contracts, but Jose Enrique has today said that he fancies signing a new long term contract on Tyneside himself, depsite the fact he still has two years remaining on his current deal.

Man of the moment Jose Enrique has won many plaudits this season, not just from our own fans, but from fans of other teams who are casting admiring glances at the Spanish left back. And for us Toon fans it was seeing Enrique open his scoring account on Monday night at a rain soaked St James’ Park that put the icing on the cake of the victory over Nottingham Forest. In fact further than that, the subsequent celebration’s put the cherry on top of the icing on the cake as it’s been so long since it has been so apparent that a player clearly loves being here that it was a joy to watch.

That 2-0 win on Monday night now means that it is virtually impossible to miss out on promotion back to the Premier League, a promotion that could be confirmed as early as Saturday should results go our way, and from a purely selfish point of view I hope it is confirmed as I, along with 4,400 other mags inside the gorund plus probably a lot more without match tickets outside the ground, will be there at London Road to see it. In the build up to Saturday, Jose Enrique has been talking all things Newcastle United, including what he thinks of our fortunes in the Premier League next season. After a shaky initial introduction to life on Tyneside, Jose now looks settled and is one player that we all know for sure will be fine in the Premier League. (more…)

Enrique – “It would be a disaster for us not to get into the Premier League”.

Talking the talk and walking the walk.

Following on from several others so far this season, next up to discuss Newcastle’s new-found team spirit and ‘togetherness’ is Jose Enrique. I’ll forgive Jose though because I think he’s a genuine legend in the making and his feet do most of the talking. Enrique has made a great start to the season, but he’s also been speaking about the expectations within the squad at the moment:

“It would be a disaster for us not to get into the Premier League now from the position we are in,”

“We are playing well so I would not be able to understand how we wouldn’t have got into the Premier League from this position. It’s good we are up there. Everyone wants us to win the league and it is good we’re in this position but the most important thing is to finish in the top two and get back up. That is most important.”

“Would it be a disaster to be in the play-offs? No, because you still have the chance to the get promoted but it is more important we stay in the top two positions. If we go up automatically the fans are happier and more relaxed.”

He then went on to elaborate about the morale and general good vibes amongst the squad at the moment, saying:

“The spirit is unbelievable, the team is doing well in the table and getting wins so the atmosphere is great,” (more…)
