Danny Guthrie Is Living A Dream At Newcastle United

Danny Guthrie admits he is enjoying his time on Tyneside, and loving it every time he plays alongside Nicky Butt, in the middle of Newcastle’s midfield.


Danny Guthrie is living  a dream at Newcastle

Guthrie has come on well since he arrived at Newcastle in the summer, and he seems a top player in the making, when you remember the lad is still only 21 years old.

He’s formed a good understanding with Nicky Butt in the middle of the park this season and the two of them were again outstanding during last weekend’s win at Portsmouth.

And Guthrie has every right to believe that Butt’s wide experience can only help him improve him as a player, and Danny is only too willing to learn form the former Man United and England star.

Danny said today:

“I’ve played with Nicky for most of the season, and it’s just great to play with someone who has been there and done it,” “When he tells me something, or when he shouts at me during a game, I take it on board because he knows what he’s talking about.”

“I’ve also played with Joey Barton and he is great to play with as well.” “They’re two different players, and I don’t mind who I’m playing with as long as I’m playing.”

“When I was at Man United, Nicky was playing. You always watched the first-team games, and he was the one playing alongside Paul Scholes, Roy Keane and top players like that.”

“I wouldn’t have thought I’d be playing alongside him a few years on!”

And Danny seems to be enjoying his time on Tyneside, as the players seems to be putting the trials and tribulations of the last few months behind them, since Joe Kinnear seems to be takinf a grip of the club, both on and off the field.

The Newcastle side are starting to play some decent attacking football, and the spirit has certainly returned to the club, after the disastrous time we all had after Kevin Keegan resigned in early September.

Guthrie, who scored his first league goals for the club during the 3-0 win at Fratton Park, admits he is now living a dream every time he runs out at the famous St.James’ Park stadium.

Danny said:

“There aren’t many better places to play than St James’s Park, which I’ve found out this year,”

“Everyone always talks about it, like former players and players who are here, but it’s something else to actually do it.”

Danny also looked ahead to the crucial game against Spurs at St. Jems’ Park this Sunday:

“We’ve drawn a couple at home we should have won, and dropped valuable points, but the Portsmouth win will be a massive boost for us, and if we can stop conceding at home, we’ll be all right.

“It’s been a win and a draw, or a win and a loss, but once you start putting wins back to back, that’s when you start moving up the table.

“After Sunday’s performance, we can start doing that. It seems like a while, especially away from home, and it was a nice feeling.”

If we play well and win the game on Sunday then Newcastle fans may have to face the fact that this team may actually be for real, and with some additional players in the January transfer window, we may even do very well through the end of the season.

But how many times have we said that in the past? 😀

Oh well, we still live in hope and maybe this new dawn may eventually see the sun rise high in the sky, and shine brightly on the Newcastle United Football Club.

Certainly it’s something the ever faithful fans have deserved for 40 years.

    If Joe does actually sign what we desperately need (an attacking midfielder) it might be Danny that makes way.

    Lets see what happens against Spurs, everyone is so elated by the win against Pompey .
    Things could easily turn sour, so lets keep it in perspective, this club has had the fans on an emotional rollercoaster since the summer and still needs strengthening .
    One mans dream may be anothers nightmare.

    Guthrie is looking a good buy so far .. quality gor holding the ball .. still needs to improve distribution and tackling but definately a good acquisition .. good job so far ..
    As for nightmare .. yep this season is a total nightmare.. bad results, greedy owners etc etc .. the list goes on .. hopefully Kinnear can sort out some results to calm this nightmare down.

    I was really surprised when we signed him, but I have been impressed by him so far. Doesn’t often give the ball away. He seems to really want to play for the club and want to improve. Hopefully we can get more players like him. Its better than the trophy signings of the past!

    He got the talent but we have to make sure we make the right environment to let him improve too.
