Guthrie Wants As Many Games As Possible Next Season

Danny Guthrie has talked to Newcastle United TV, and he hopes the club can make a return to European football very soon  -  same here.


Danny Guthrie – could be pleasant surprise at Newcastle

The 21-year-old has already played in the Champions League with Liverpool, and even last season played with Bolton Wanderers, and they reached the last 16 of the UEFA Cup. So Danny already has quite a bit of experience playing in Europe.

Guthrie spoke to nufcTV, and was asked about his ambitions for the coming season:

“For the team, if we get a good start I don’t think Europe is out of the way for us with the players we have,” “For me, just to get as many games as I can.”

“The manager has had a good pre-season to get who he wants in, and the players are really working hard in training. A European place is realistic.”

“It’s notorious, everyone knows we have under-achieved for a few years, so to break into Europe or have a cup run would be amazing.”

Guthrie will probably make his debut in tomorrow’s friendly at Hartlepool United, so the fans will get a chance to see how he looks.

And the youngster has already said he wants to force himself into the starting eleven, at Old Trafford on Sunday, 17th August, as an initial target.

Danny continued:

“The gaffer just said to me, ‘Just knuckle down, and you will have as great a chance as anybody in here’,”

“It is just about me knuckling down and showing everyone what I can do to get into the starting line-up on the first day.”

We’re hoping that Guthrie will be a pleasant surprise for us this coming season, and certainly Bolton supporters on this site, have said he was very good for them last season at the Raebok.

We look for great things from Danny in the future on Tyneside.

    Good lad, lets hope his enthusiasm rubs off on some of the lazier players in the club! Can see the lad doing well for us, perhaps not this season but in the future.

    I just watched the training free view video on the nufc official website and during that i spotted a player who i didnt reconise and i thought looked a bit like Marouane Chamakh. Not sure but if someone else could take a look then they might be able to clear it up.

    I like the strategy of bringing in young players. I wish I had more confidence that we have the ability to develop their skills as much as Man U and Arsenal – not much evidence of that so far.

    Ed you spelt Reebok wrong lol. i feel he really needs to impress to even be considered to be in starting 11 at moment he is going to be pushing our old and lazy midfield for a place and to be fair i think he wil do better than geremi,butt,barton,smith so put him in.

    Whitey! didnt see chemach!

    i seen a tall guy with the orange nike mecurail vapors and i didnt recongnise him but i suspect he was a reserve.

    the video revealed gutierez took up a posistion on the left wing in front of beye.

    it also showed him playing a very lazy ball and giving away the ball

    I did think it looked like Andy Carroll a first but now i cant decide who it is. Then i thought that Marouane Chamakh might have been on trial.

    I also thought it looked a bit like Albert Luque and that would have bin a disaster lol

    it does look like chamakh, must be having a trial. Carrol is injured, tom toon would probably be able to tell us for sure if it is Chamakh

    The 2 players we have signed are actually showing what players KK and co are after. Guthrie sounds very eager to show what he’s made of.
    Jonas started training a wek earlier than he had to, just so he could get to know his team mates.
    2 hungry players, let’s get a few more in. 🙂

    its not chamakh,osborne is a defensive midfielder who plays in the kenyan league while chamakh is a winger,.do your homework well LeeG123

    Judging by the formations taken up and the team he is on, it looks like he would be playing left wing or up front. As he is attacking Steven Taylor. So its more likley that it is chamakh and not osborne.

    what i meant is that we need a defensive midfielder to challenge guthrie and i’ve seen that in my local lad osborne monday who plays in the kenyan league.what do you think ?

    Good buy, not too expensive, great portential and very interested in Keegans comments he sees him as a Bracewell / Lee type player and expects him to become a DM in the future.

    Does this mean we have bought Butts eventual replacement?
