Jonas Gutierrez – surprised at Sunderland strong-arm tactics

Jonas talked about the yesterday’s game today:

“It happened a few times, and some of their players were booked,”

“I can take it. I knew that when I came to England that players get kicked in the Premier League, especially in derby games.”

“But I was surprised that the referee didn’t produce a second yellow card at times.”

“I have no complaints, though. If I get kicked, and there is no intention that’s fine. It’s a contact sport.”

“I just want to work hard for the team, and I think I did that along with rest of the players.”

“I felt good in the game, but feel disappointed now because we didn’t win it for the fans.”

“I was told, in no uncertain terms, how important it was to win against Sunderland, but at least we showed some fight.”

“The performance in the second half was better, but in football the team that plays better doesn’t always win. So we have to take a point.”

The game next Saturday is again a very important fixture, away to bottom of the league West Bromwich Albion.

A defeat there is the very last thing we want because it will mean they gain 3 points on us, but a win would start to take us away from the bottom of the league, hopefully.

It would also give Newcastle fans some breathing room because we have no wins in our last 8 games, and we must break that duck very shortly.

We’re also hoping we’ll have Oba Martins, Ryan Taylor and Alan Smith available for that game, plus any player we get in before tonight’s 5:00 pm deadline today.

At least the new players will have had a week to settle in too, before the WBA game.

Comments welcome.

    -we nearly win the match

    -BUT we nearly lose the match..so draw is a far result

    -Possession-wise we are better but its the result that matter

    beye – is it not obvious to you? we’ve been here before, many times.

    There would have been deals in the pipeline but I bet my mortgage that they’ll all fall through.

    Taylor must have signed, he was at the ground yesterday and that must have gone through.

    Look at the names we’re supposedly in for though…

    Johnson – no chance, City confirm he’s going nowhere.
    Veloso – No chance, and agent confirms he’s staying in Portugal.
    Fox – maybe but Coventry say no approach.
    Gomis – no way, too expensive.

    We need to get real. We have very little money.
    Do Santos for £3million would have been good, but Pompey have signed him…

    We’re a bloody shambles and there’ll be no big signings…mark my words

    He doesnt know….

    He is just one of the regular doom merchants who thinks Ashley wants us to get relegated….

    Give over and grow up…Its a time to be optimistic!

    Edd, I believe Ashley has something in the pipeline, considering he emailed into Sky saying he did.

    TokyoPoliceDanny – grow up?

    Is it not totally childish to think that we’ll be buying in some great new signings?

    There’s no evidence of any new signings.

    In fact, why haven’t the club confirmed Taylors signature?

    I might be all doom and gloom but there’s really nothing to get optimistic about.

    Where are the signings? I’ve been stuck on trains all day (seriously, 6 hours going nowhere!), been soaked through with snow, got freezing feet, had some really shite coffee and now have a cold!

    Someone make me feel better!

    AndyNUFC – I think Ashley must have something up his sleeve, otherwise he is setting himself up for quite a fall.

    AndyNUFC – in the pipeline is not quite the same thing as actually having signed some half-decent players is it?

    I want to believe so much, like many of you, I was born in the General and bleed black N’ white but I’ve got my hopes up before and especially recently since Ashley’s been in charge and it’s always just bitter dissapointment.

    Surely Ashley understands the backlash from fans if he says this and doesn’t get a good signing in.
