Jonas Gutierrez is one of the buys of the season for Newcastle United and he looks like a top top player, and how we actually got himn remains a bit of a mystery, but if we cannot other bargain buys like Jonas next month, we’ll be doing just fine.
Jonas Gutierrez – another top performance yesterday
Jonas told the Evening Chronicle today:
“The win against Tottenham was very important because before the game they were on the same points as us and we have now pulled away from them a little bit.”
“It’s a perfect start for us and we want to keep up the momentum.” “Charles N’Zogbia has got us off to a great start – it was a very good goal and well worked, with help from Shay.”
“Unfortunately we didn’t build early on and they got a goal.” “But we kept working hard and the winner was probably deserved.
“I was pleased for Damien Duff and Mark Viduka – it was good for them to combine for the winner after being on the bench.”
“This could be a very important win.”
Joe Kinnear has some options these days with Damien Duff, Steven Taylor and Mark Vudika all on the bench, and the competition for places will heat up even more once we get to February, and Joe Kinnear brings in up to 5 new top players into the club by then.
And speaking on the squad right now Gutierrez said:
“You always need players as back-up.” “Hopefully, Shola will be OK after picking up and injury and Oba Martins will be back as well.”
It looks like Shola is out for 10 days, and that will give a good chance to Mark Viduka to get some much needed match play on Boxing Day, since Oba Martins has also been ruled out for that game too.
That’s our next game on Friday against Wigan Athletic at the JJB Stadium, and it just turns out that we have a very poor record at that ground, since we’ve never won there, and that has to be good, because we can change that on Boxing Day.
The skillful Argentine, who seems to love it on Tyneside said:
“We want to put that to an end, of course.” “We must keep on trying to win every game.“
“I think we have a good opportunity to win our first game at the JJB Stadium.” “It would be good to change some history.”
Joe Kinnear should probably be checking with Fabricio and Jonas, to see if there are any more good Argentine players available, who would like to play their football on Tyneside, since the both of them have been terrific buys for our club.
Roll on Friday!
