There's no I in team
Jose Enrique may well have his opinions on just where Newcastle United are at right now but there has been a mixed reaction to the Spaniard's outburst here in Columbus.
His tweet came just after Newcastle had landed in Columbus and boarded the bus to their Ohio base.
But did it really come as any great surprise?
For a start, Enrique has been unsettled since January when talk of a new contract first came out into the open.
Since then he has made it clear he wants a move and Alan Pardew has went on the record to say that on more than one occasion.
The lowdown is, as good as Enrique is, no indvidual is bigger than any team.
The definition of a team is: "A group organised to work together."
And if one player is disrupting that group than it makes a hard task more difficult.
Enrique has a right to be concerned about the team's chances of finishing in the top six.
But in many ways, he is also insulting members of his team by suggesting they aren't capable of doing it.
Newcastle United existed before Enrique came to the club and they will exist long after he is gone, I don't know many fans who attend St James' Park regulary who have stopped supporting the team because an individual has left.
Besides, while a new left-back is on Pardew's wanting list, there are others here that would love the chance to show what they can do in that position.
Shane Ferguson is injured but more than capable of playing there and would jump at the chance - he may lack experience but in terms of raw ability, he has impressed.
James Tavernier is also capable of playing in the position and in my opinion, Newcastle have another excellent and versatile player on their books.
Throw into the equation the more youthful Paul Dummett, a left-back that makes superb forays up and down the field in the reserves, and you have another player of promise.
Dummett is already being fast-tracked by the Welsh FA in the style of Gareth Bale, who Wales trumped England to a few years ago.
Enrique has been a fantastic player for the Magpies in the last two years.
But when he arrived at the club he signed a contract to take him through until 2012, if nobody puts a bid in, then he has no choice to put up or shut up.
There are millions who would love to be in his position and thousands who pay their hard earned to see him turn out in black and white.
If he can't get a move, then he has no choice but to focus on doing the business for the Toon Army.
