If there’s one thing that’s been positive about this summer’s transfer market, it’s that the players Newcastle have brought in so far are all excellent buys.
Danny Guthrie – excellent buy by Kevin in the summer
Danny Guthrie, brought in from Liverpool, probably for around ?2M, has played in every game in pre-season and in the first 3 games proper of this season, and looks made to measure to become a big future star at the club.
There were reports yesterday that Stuart Pearce is thinking about including him in the England Under-21 squad, and that would be just reward for a player who seems to produce the goods week in week out for the Magpies.
Danny said yesterday to nufvTV:
“My debut at Man United was great and we could’ve won it in the end,” “It was nice to hear the manager call me his man-of-the-match afterwards because my main target when I signed was just to be in the team for the first game.”
“It’s went really well for me but now I have to build on that and stay in the team for as long as I can.”
“I’ve loved it so far and I’ve got a house now so I’m settled and the area is fantastic.”
Newcastle now travel to Arsenal for tomorrow’s game, which has a 5:30 pm kick off time, and no doubt Kevin will have the lads ready for that game, despite all the news on James Milner leaving the club, over the last couple of days.
“Our home form is massive this season,” “If you win your home games you will finish high up the table.”“It’s always a bonus to nick points from the top four but winning at home is what we need to do on a regular basis.”
Danny is great acquisition for the club and a fantastic lad, and he is happy to play at the Newcastle club managed by a former Liverpool (and Newcastle) legend Kevin Keegan.
And we mustn’t forget that the fabulous team spirit Keegan has already generated at the club, is because every single player wants to be at Newcastle and contribute to the success of Keegan’s second revolution.
So in that context, if young James Milner wants to leave for more money, it’s hard to argue why we should keep him.
But we’ll keep Guthrie, for many a season, and while he may not be top notch right now, he’s on the road to being that, sooner rather than later.
It’s great to have young lads like Danny at Newcastle. 😀
