Jonas Gutierrez, who is already a fan favorite at Newcastle, has said today he will use all his experience from previous relegation battles with his previous club Real Mallorca, to ensure Newcastle United can survive in the Premier League this season.
Jonas Gutierrez – has had relegation experience with Real Mallorca
It turns out that Jonas in his first two seasons at Mallorca, had to fight for survival in the Spanish First division, and the lads won their fight to stave off relegation to the Seconda Liga.
Jonas has said today he doesn’t mind where Newcastle finish up in the Premier League this season, just as long as the team can stay up and guarantee Premier League action next season.
Hopefully we can do that, and the Newcastle Board can then ensure we’ll have a better squad for next season, and maybe we can look forward to even finishing in the top half of the table, and that would be good, and a nice change.
The 25-year-old Argentine International said this morning:
“I have been in relegation battles before with Real Mallorca in my first two seasons,” “We stayed up in both of those years before finishing seventh in my last season.”
“But now, with Newcastle, I don’t mind where we finish as long as we stay in the Premier League.” “I believe we have the quality to do that and I am confident we will avoid relegation.”
“It is simple – we need to win games and get as many points as possible.” “Hull is very, very important. A win would take us up the table and would be very good for confidence.”
It also looks like Jonas is almost back to the top form he showed at the beginning of the season, and he can certainly be one of our key players during the run-in.
One thing is for certain right now, and that is we need some heroes at Newcastle to stand up and be counted, and start to produce the form that will ensure the club starts winning games, and gets out of the relegation quagmire, just as soon as possible.
We need all the big guns in the team to start firing – together – so we can blow some teams away, starting at Hull tomorrow. 😀
