Danny Guthrie Undergoing Medical On Tyneside


We wouldn’t be surprised  if Danny Guthrie becomes Newcastle’s second transfer of the season.

 Danny Guthrie – soon to be Keegan’s second signing

The Newcastle official site is reporting the young Liverpool midfielder will be undergoing a medical, and if that goes well, we expect the youngster to sign on the dotted line, and become a Newcastle player.

The initial reaction of readers on our site seems to be one of slight disappointment at the news, but we think Danny will be a good signing, and he’s really one for the future.

He’s also English, in case FIFA President Sepp Blatter is successful in getting his 6 plus 5 scheme approved, where we’d need to start 6 English players, and be limited to fielding only 5 foreigners in any game.

The news being reported on several news sources this afternoon is that Danny is on Tynesdie right now, undergoing his medical with Newcastle United, and that wouldn’t surprise us.

Maybe the signing will be formally announced tomorrow, and we would be fine with the deal.

Guthrie will certainly not have any lack of confidence playing for Kevin Keegan, and he must be looking forward to playing for the  ever positive manager, who can be such an inspiration to any youngster pulling on the famous black and white shirt of Newcastle.

We read some of Kevin’s comments he made last season, and we were even looking for our boots.  😀

As we  indicated earlier today, we don’t think Danny is expected to walk straight into the first team, but here’s yet another top young player, who will now end up on Tyneside.

We often wonder if Mike Ashley was a fan of the Busby Babes of the late 1950s, because we seem to be headed in that direction, don’t we?

Comments welcome.

    wall virginty 😉 . 😉

    hopefully we can get him tied up tonight though i think it will be announced tomorrow even if we do. not exactly gonna set the prem alight but he’s a decent squad player with the potential to be a first teamer and providing it’s around 2-2.5 mil then a good signing imo. lets have a few more of these cheap signings and then a couple of big ones if you’re willing to get your wallet out mike.

    to suggest we’re gonna be playing football like the busby babes is perhaps a little optimistic ed 😉 and when i say little i mean hugely

    I think he’s a good signing with this price.

    …and before getting in Shearer, how much did we spend for building up the Entertainers?

    decent signing even as a back up, at the moment our squad is so thin we need 2 or 3 of these types of players maybe larrson being one of them and prob 5 or 6 slightly older more experienced players

    Sounds good to me.

    For the price cant really go wrong as he is SO young, even if he dont make it into first team he will last a long time as a backup.

    Great, lets ROLE on the new players more more MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    lol Leo, i’d be more worried that he’s 14 and doesn’t know what virginity is, frankly.

    as for Guthrie, he’ll be a good squad player, and that’s what we need, because while he may not be the level of player we’d hoped to see, we’ll need 2 or 3 of these ‘low key’ signings just to fill out the subs bench, more than anything!

    nah, but seriously, he looks a solid enough player, just have to wait and see how he develops.

    Dan, we all know Rafa likes Spainish-speaking lads except for Barry. It’s really easy for Rafa to let him go.

    On LFC forums the majority of fans seem to be pretty upset Guthrie is leaving. KK knows a player. Lets wait and see…

    Dont really see how this could be bad thing…. whats the worst that could happen?

    With a squad our size there’s going to be a point this season when we just need anybody to play and it might as well be him. At least he put’s himself about a bit.

    This whole ‘if hes so good liverpool wouldnt let him go’ stuff is just bollocks to be honest. Youre basically saying that if youre not Gerrard, Mascherano or Alonso then youre a crap player. Alonsos being sold, does that make him bad? No, didnt think so. Give the lad a chance

    Liverpool let him go ‘cos they cannot guarentee him first team football, what he craves, and also Gerrard, Mascherano, Alonso, & Benayoun etc are competing for the same position as Guthrie so he wouldn’t be guarenteed it…

    Here is a quote from a Liverpool fan

    “He’s very average, yet Lucas is something special?

    Please…

    Guthrie has a touch and can spot a pass, he can also influence a game. He knows how to give the ball to a player then get it back and show for the centre halves to pass to… Unlike Lucas who floats through games he can also throw in a tackle. The only thing that really lets Guthrie down is his physical attributes.

    You’ll see next season anyway when he’s doing well for Newcastle and we have to watch Lucas trying to be Fabregas and offering absolutely all in every game he plays again. “

    You people that are seriously thinking this is a bad or “average” signing need to get a clue. Have you seen how thin our squad is?

    Also all this “if he was so good why would Liverpool let him go” is just utter balls. If Benitez actually knew how to win the premiership he wouldn’t be wanting to replace Alonso with Barry!

    Methinks the boy is being “groomed” to replace Nicky Butt in the long run.

    We still need a creative midfielder mind you.

    I am not happy,

    We are not a big club ya know we hide behind the best support thing blah blah and thats only becouse we are isolated geographicly compared to most other teams. At the end of the day with these kind of signing we are never guna make europe and are guna fall in to the mid table team we have become for many years to come.

    I guess this means that signing Inler’s out the window now then??

    And before you start i love Newcastle with all my heart and thats why i am ranting (hope to god i’m wrong)
