Gutierrez – Carling Cup Important For Our Fans


Jonas Gutierrez, who is one of our players who is not going anywhere before Monday, principally because he’s only just arrived last month, gave a good interview again to the Evening Chronicle yesterday, which we overlooked because of the James Milner news.

Jonas Gutierrez – had another very good game


Jonas had another all action game for us on Tuesday evening in our amazing and difficult 3-2 win against a spirited Coventry City side.

Jonas told the Chronicle:

“It was a very good victory for the supporters – although we would have preferred not to have conceded that goal in the last minute.”

“We didn’t want extra time because our fans had traveled so far, but we had to do it.” “It was great to play in an English cup tie for me and it was obvious how important it was to our fans.”

“We were happy to show them we feel the same way by getting the result in the end and getting into the next round.”

Gutierrez has now played against 3 English sides so far in champions Manchester United, battling Bolton and Championship play-off hopefuls Coventry City, and has performed so well. Along with his compatriot Fabricio, who is looking top class in everything he does.

Gutierrez added:

“We thought we had done enough to win but Coventry came back at us and we had to start again.” “But we did it again and we have to be happy to be into the next round now.”

“The striker role is different for me.” “But I want to play and will play in any position.

“My manager wanted me to play there so, of course, I agreed.” “If it means doing a job for the team I am more than happy to do so.”

We expect Michael Owen is now ready to start against Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday at 5:30pm, and we expect Gutierrez will be out wide on the left again.

But Gutierrez is already a fan of his captain as he said:

“Michael is a very important player for us.” “He’s like all great strikers, he gets the goals and we need him.”

It‘s great that Jonas thought of the fans when extra time was announced because he knew it may be difficult for them on their return journeys, that’s a nice touch.

And we continue to be amazed by Jonas who seems to have been at the club for years – all four signings played on Tuesday night, and all four gave good accounts of themselves,

And another thing we learned on Tuesday is that Bassong will be pushing Taylor hard for the first team jersey, as he looked very good, given he’s only had a handful of games for us.

Another great signing by Kevin.

    Must say, im very interested in the fans reactions on Milner against Arsenal…Same if Joey comes on, which has been hinted.
    I suspect i wont be a pretty sight.

    Looks like things around the club will get a little worse before it gets better.

    i think jonas on the right would be sooooo much better than milner. his crosses into the box are so dangerous. He is bags more pace and can beat his man time and time again. milner plays with 200% effort and heart but his best performance was the other night against a championship side. i would snap aston villas hands off if they bid £10m. use it to help towards a creative midfielder, a defensive midfielder and possibly a striker. we still have barton to come back as well. I think everyone is over reacting about the james milner thing, i will be gutted to see him leave but for that money then we dont have much choice really!!

    Spyro in theory this whole thing with Milner should not affect our recruitment team in still bringing in the signings that were promised. However if Milner and Owen signed new contracts I would happily wait until January to get the new signings in. You never know with us at the moment the club seem to play their cards very close to their chests.

    Dan_from_france, hello my simple old son. Cotton on to what exactly, that Milner wants a pyrise when he hasn’t earned it?

    That the club won’t bend to the will of a 22 year old midfielder (who provided two assists last season)?

    That 3 year contracts can be ignored because a players agent doesn’t think it’s fair anymore?

    T-G-W, as it says in Ed’s article, Jonas gave the interview yesterday, probably before the news about Milner broke. I doubt it was scheduled to coinside with the bad news, but if you want to believe that, you carry on.

    Imo Milner is a class act & is still only 22, so imagine what he’ll be like when he’s Jonas age, he’ll be awesome, so I say no to selling him, especially to one or theteams we’ll be competing against for a european place, come on guys, think before you post…
    I also think Ashley doesn’t want to put any more money into the club & is probably thinking about selling up in maybe January or just before, as I don’t think this Steve Mchanon visit was just about advertising the TOON in Singapore, there’s defo more to it imo!!!
    So no more signing, sell off our best assets, up the prices of ST & buy the fans of with free beer!!! is this all the Ashley regime is going to offer us is it… if so, I think it’s about time the fans did the talking by not attending the matches untill something changes….. 🙁

    I see Henrik Larrson is in talks with 3 unnamed Premier clubs.

    Could we be one of them?

    How old is he anyway?

    Would he be any good?

    I dont know!! I am kind of hoping for a more permanent / wow signing! But hes better than nothing.

    Get Ashley out of Toon!!!…He is destroying the club and this time if KK walks I would rollout the red carpet for him at the St James Park exit door because he is being undermined in everything he does! Long live the Messiah!

    If Milner leaves Jonas can take the right, Zog the left, Butt can hold and Guthrie can drive through the centre.

    Still a very good midfield.

    In my humble opinion, Bassong looked fantastic, and dare I say it, better than Taylor in ALL respects. Fast, strong, reads the game well, good head, composed. What a signing.

    Jonas is pure quality,Quite shocked that his workrate is so good as i didn`t expect that with a South American.
    Bags of talent he has.
    About the Milner Situation!!!!!!!!!!
    Sell James if he Aint happy with his 500 quid a week.We can get someone else thats quality for the cash we get.
    Just look what we got in Jonas for the money,now he is already worth the cash.

    Milner not that good I agree. SWP or Turan would be a better alternative. Enrique must play at left back then the defense would be even better than it has looked. Bassong left footer could he play there?
    Still time for signings.

    a little bit off topic but…check what i found on Wiki about Mike Ashley(i know wiki is not the most reliable source, a good read non the less)

    “Ashley was seen as an intensely private person, who never attended industry functions or gives interviews.[1] Philip Beresforde, who compiles the annual Sunday Times list, said neither he nor his staff have ever managed to contact Ashley, and describes him as “easily Britain’s answer to the late Howard Hughes.”[2] However, since Sports Direct International Plc went public, and his purchase of Newcastle United where he has taken to sitting in the stands with fans, Ashley has taken on a more public and accessible persona.”

    taken off his Wiki page! could be a reason why we hardly ever hear from the man!

    I think we all just need to chill out about the Milner news after reading all 200 comments I think opinion is divided but its true he does have potential but is alot of the time quite ordinary. People are acting like Oba or Owen just handed in the transfer request!

    Barry wanted to leave Villa, Adebeyor was close to a move, Flamini left Arsenal, Hleb left arsenal. It will be okay everyone. James milner is not anywhere near these guys quality.

    Im not that bothered if we sell him, as long as we get 10mil and hopefull have our eyes on a replacement. SWP, Arda, Arshavin Lennon would all be good signings…..

    4 more days to go KEEP THE FAITH!!!!

    Jonas is superb, what a great attitude. But I agree with Matty about playing him on the right, his crossing will be far more effective on that side compared to Milner’s. Oh and Portsmouth out of the running for SWP, on Sky Sports News.

    Henrik Larsson is on the verge of leaving Helsingborg, I have read in the swedish newpaper… If he will leave for the PL, he will atleast be cheap, reckon a maximum of 1M pund.

    Everyone know what he did at Man utd just 2 years ago, and he still plays like the old Larsson.

    When players reach over 30, you usaly se they get worse and worse by the mounth… Larsson doesn´t.

    But, he is 37 I think, wich isn´t realy a normal transfer for a PL club!

    Would like to se a swede in the team, no doubt! But that swede should be Sebastian Larsson (or Ibrahimovic 😉 ) not Henrik, to old… Altough he is a perfekt professional!

    no scolari said that malouda will get a chance at chelsea this season, we wont get him. what we should do is play nzog on the left let enrique go lb and hav jonas on the right (as he can play on either wing). obviously we still need cover. milner wants to leave because of contract demands yeah? well, despite him being a poor crosser and all that, he is still a good squad member for us so it wuld probably be in our best interests to boot his contract up a bit. If what the media is saying is true though, that we will get 10 mil for him then and only then if keegan can find a better winger than him we should let him leave. its pointless getting rid of players even for big money if we cant replace them.
