Jonas Gutierrez was signed for almost nothing last summer from Real Mallorca and has taken to Newcastle like a fish to water.
Jonas Gutierrez – one of our two Argentine Geordies
Our Argentine Geordie is already popular with Newcastle fans, because of his vibrant personality, and the fact that he works like a Trojan in every game he plays for the club.
Add to that his ability and willingness to run right at the opposing defenses, like he did on Sunday, and there’s little surprise he’s already a Tyneside fan favorite.
Jonas has some words to say for the new arrivals at Newcastle, and although there are just three new players, there’s now more quality that has been brought into the club last month.
Gutierrez told the Evening Chronicle today:
“We have signed new players but they must be aware of the fight we face.”
“I don’t think we can afford to lose more matches.” “We were a team that was hard to beat earlier in the season.”
“But we’ve struggled because of the injuries.” “Now with new players coming in we must regroup and look to fight our way out of it.”
“I will feel a lot happier when we reach 40 points.” “If we can get near that we will be safe.”
“But until we reach it we have to keep looking behind us. All the matches will be very difficult.”
“But we can only focus on one at a time.” “These are like cup finals for us.”
With players like Jonas in our team, we should be able to avoid relegation this season -rather easily.
We hope so anyway.
