Guthrie Back In Newcastle Team Tomorrow

Danny Guthrie has admitted he is completely to blame for being unable to help the Newcastle team in the last 3 games, because of suspension.

Danny Guthrie – glad to be back and learned his lesson

Danny was sent off right at the end of the game against Hull City, the first game after Keegan left, which was the worst performance of the season for Newcastle.

It was completely out of character for Danny, but he lost his composure, and things were made a lot worse when we found out that Fagan had actually broken his leg in the tackle, and is out for months.

The good news for Newcastle is that Danny should be back in the team on Sunday, and he has a chance to repay having been missing from the side for 3 games, because of his reckless actions.

Danny said today:

“The last couple of weeks, I have been a bit down, but I can only blame myself for that. Hopefully, I can end that on Sunday.”

“I have spoken to Craig Fagan and apologized, and he was sound about it. He said I shouldn’t have done it, but that’s football.”

“I said I was sorry about what happened and he was fine about it.” “It is good to be back. It was quite lucky really as it came over an eight-day period due to the Carling Cup game.”

“It was a long wait and it has been good to be back. It has been frustrating for me after doing something so silly.” “You pay the price for not playing and then everything else has happened around me with the manager coming in.”

“I’m glad it is over and now I just want to concentrate on playing football.”

We think this will be a good lesson for Danny, but it’s hard on Fagan that his leg had to be broken in all of this.

From what we’ve seen of Danny, he is a solid lad, and has certainly looked a bargain for around £2.5M, or whatever we paid Liverpool for the 21 year-old former England Schoolboy International.

Everton have lost all of their three Premier League games at home this season, and we have to hope we can extend that to four. They have lost to Blackburn, Portsmouth and rivals Liverpool.

Danny added:

“They have to win sooner or later and hopefully, that is not against us.” “We know it will be a tough game. They are strong at home, but with us getting a new manager in, it has given us a lift.”

“Playing two games in the space four days is always tough, so hopefully we can capitalize on that.” “We are fresh, we have trained and also had a couple of days off. We need to use that to our advantage.”

It’s a great opportunity for Newcastle to break their 5 game losing streak, and we must try everything to get something out of this game, and a win would be just terrific – here’s hoping.

Comments welcome.

    I don’t rate him. I don’t think he will make it here. Let him go at the first opportunity.

    Isaac. To use ‘your’ language, the lad’s a schmuck – but still he looks a canny player. Give him a chance! The interview is another boring piece of lazy journo.

    I was dwelling on the thought “what if all our players were fit”? Or without suspensions etc. We’d have a pretty strong squad, though you could say that about most Prem teams I suppose.

    Imagine, say –







    subs –


    Need to swap it sround to 4-4-2 or similar for some games? Zog in place of Martins, Spider moving more towards cm?

    Mr Hunt… your name says it all if thats all you have to say.

    The kid has been probably in the top 3 players to date and you dont rate him? It took Steven Gerrard until he was 24-25 to look like the player he is so give the lad a chance. Other than Fabregas and maybe 1 or 2 others, how many other 21 year old midfielders do you rate in the prem league?

    I like guthrie he is full of energy in the middle of the park. We need this because butt has lost his legs. JK called him a box to box player i think thats right. How long has Barton got left on his ban? Good player but a bad bast rd. Three points tomorrow happy days we need something to sing about

    Ed Speed,

    Evening fella. I was just thinking that myself.

    Could be the fact that its on the tele and everyone is skint or the fact the away toon fans cant be bothered.

    My brother in law went today with a bus load or regulars and Im sure will sing us proud!

    Just thinking this today.

    How the F**K do we get beat 3 nil by arsenal, sunderland hold them down til the end and hull beat them.

    That sums up the way we have been playing.

    Cant wait for the mackem match. Got a half day at work and will be in that bar for 1215pm!!!!!

    Tomorrow – gonna be a hard slog but think if we have the moral and tactics right we can do everton and bag 3 points!!

    Sure did you can download the demo from playstation network. You can play as man u scum, liverpool, barca, real madrid and the italy and france international teams. You can only play a 5 minute match with each team. You cant play become a legend or master league though. It looks good to me. The way the ball moves across the ground and in the air is far better. A players height and size comes into affect as well going in for takles and headers stuff like that. Sorry this isnt a gamers blog. Going on a bit there. COME ON THE MAGPIES.

    Pro Evo 2008 was watered down for casuals, I don’t have much faith for 2009. Hell, I don’t even play PES 2008 anymore I’ve went back to PES 6, a game where you have to actually work to score a goal.
