It’s a big blow for Newcastle and the player himself, but Joey Barton will again be on the sidelines at the club, this time for around 8 weeks, with his damaged right knee.
Danny Guthrie – big chance for 21 year-old
But the good news if that our 21 year-old former Liverpool midfielder Danny Guthrie, is now available to come in, and do a job again in the Newcastle engine room.
While he still lacks experience, Danny needs games to improve his game, and he’s certainly been one of our best buys during the summer.
Joe Kinnear is also well aware that Danny can do a good job for the club in Joey’s absence.
Joe said today:
“Danny was very unlucky to drop down to the bench when Joey returned,” “But now Joey is injured he will come in and I’m very happy about that because he’s a great, young player.”
“He’s box-to-box, very energetic and a great passer of the ball.” “Of course, it’s a blow to lose Joey, but this gives Danny a chance and I’m sure he’ll pick up where he left off.”
We like what we see of young Danny, and he also seems a smashing lad, and we don’t think he’s in any mood to let the Newcastle club down. He’s already made 10 appearances for the club.
Go for it Joey.
