Danny Guthrie In-Form For Reserves In Red Devils Draw


In a corker of a game at St. James’ Park tonight, young Danny Guthrie was in good form against Manchester United.

Danny Guthrie – good display and fabulous goal 

And Danny showed the watching Chris Hughton that he is back and ready to go, with a tremendous late goal, but just when it looked like Newcastle would take all 3 points, Italian striker Federico Macheda completed his hat-trick in the dying seconds of the game.

And it was another 2 points unluckily lost by the Reserves side, but it was a sparkling game, with some good performances from the Newcastle lads.

Three players with first team experience started the game and along with Danny, Spanish Under-21 striker, Xisco, returned from his toe injury, and Brazilian veteran Claudio Cacapa were both included in the side.

Guthrie seems determined to add goals to his game, and he was first to go close on 6 minutes when his free-kick beat the wall, and went only just wide of the post.

The Red Devils went ahead after just 13 minutes from a penalty, after Cacapa handled instinctively, from Macheda’s cross  inside the area.

In fairness to the Brazilian, the cross was blocked at point-blank range, and he was given very little time to avoid the cross. The Italian Macheda made no mistake from the spot.

Guthrie was starting to get a grip of midfield for Newcastle, and a good move forward from Danny and a low cross saw Wesley Ngo Baheng, back from his ACL injury, side-footed shot deflected over the cross-bar.

But on 43 minutes Newcastle were level and it was 22 year-old Spanish striker Xisco, who was fouled by Gary Neville in the penalty area, and awarded a penalty. Xisco put the ball home with aplomb.

So two penalties in the first half and the break arrived at 1-1. 

Mark Doninger, who has been in good goal-scoring form this season, put Newcastle ahead after 49 minutes, and now has 10 goals for the season.

Guthrie put in a good cross to the far post, where  Jonny Godsmark put the ball first time into the path of Doninger, and Mark put the ball nicely just inside the post, to put Newcastle ahead.

Then on 75 minutes Macheda scored the Red Devils second goal, as he easily rounded Fraser Forster, and shot into an empty net.

Then it was the best player on the field, Danny Guthrie, who picked up a loose ball midway inside the Manchester half, took it forward and then hit a swerving 20-yard shot into the bottom corner of the net. What a goal!

But then to spoil things for Newcastle, that Macheda guy on 89 minutes hit his 3rd goal past Forster – and an exciting game ended up all square at 3-3.

It will be interesting to see if Danny Guthrie can make the starting line-up on Saturday against Chelsea – we don’t think he will, but on this form could get at least half a game.

TEAMS:

Newcastle United: Fraser Forster, James Tavernier, Shane Ferguson, Mark Doninger, Darren Lough, Claudio Cacapa (James Taylor, 76m) Jonny Godsmark, Danny Guthrie, Nile Ranger, Xisco (Frank Wiafe Danquah, 60m), Wesley Ngo Baheng (Samuel Adjei, 81m)
Subs not used: Brad Inman, James Taylor, Paul Dummett

Manchester United:  Ron Robert Zieler (Conor Devlin, 30m), Gary Neville (Reece Brown, 58m), Joe Dudgeon, Richard Eckersley, Ritchie De Laet, Matthew James, Magnus Eikrem, Rodrigo Possebon, Federico Macheda, Lee Martin, Cameron Stewart (Oliver Norwood, 69m)

Subs not used: Daniel Galbraith, Scot Wooton

Attendance: 1,277

    Butt and his wheelchair will get a game ahead of Guthrie. Any old guy gets game. What was that about a youth policy? NUFC say one thing and do another. And Harper is a massive player for the club????? He hardly got a game for 12 years and is now the captain. Now we know why we are relegation bound.

    Now the talk is that we will bring an emergency manager for the last 4/5 games. That means the owner has never had any confidence (rightly) in Hughton, so why wait until it is too late to replace him. This should have happened as soon as JK took ill. Leaving the change until the last few games just shows how stupid the owner is.

    Jimiley…PANIC.
    Writing was on the wall for ages but nothing was done.
    I came to terms with fizzy pop in January when we where looking a war scene and we buy Nolan and R. Taylor to make a patchwork quilt…MADNESS.

    sir jason toon thank god someone on here doesn’t praise guthrie as if hes amazing, i personally don’t think he’s good enough, on Harper he is a good keeper but you can tell he lacks match experiance and confidence when he is on the pitch, once he gets more games I can see him being a good goalkeeper for us although he needs to learn to kick a ball

    Best England team imo

    _______________James______________

    Johnson_____Terry____Ferdinand___A.Cole

    _______________Barry______________

    Beckham________Lampard_______Rooney

    _________Gerrard__________________

    ________________Owen_____________

    For 1 thing i can’t stand Heskey playing
    And i also think Rooney is much better on the left wing than upfront he always seems to help out the defenders too much when up top, thses past few friendleys we have must a good finisher, Gerrerd needs to play behind a striker thats his best position not on the left

    Butt is a dedicated fighter you want to bring on as a sub when you are winning and need some fight in the middle of the park for the last part of the game. Haven’t seen enough from Nolan at the minute but he is the only player i see from the stands that actually has a voice and tries to organise the team and shout orders which to be fair we do not have enough of from our other players!

    and for the record i’m not saying any of them are good enough as in my opinion for a first team squad the only good central midfielder is Joey Barton although he hasn’t shown us anywhere near his best yet

    Butt specialises in yellow cards but his pice de resistance is giving free kicks just on the edge of our box.
    Harper is a number 2 keeper. Thats why he played second fiddle to Given for 12 years and was content to do so. No decent prem team came in for him becuase he is a no. 2

    does anyone else think xisco should get a fair crack of the whip? he seems to be performing well and looking like he actually wants to play for the club… reckon his departure from the first team has anything to do with his orientation???????

    Guthrie has huge potential to do what? Play for Scouser reserves? How old and decrepid do you have to be before you realize your potential. Do you think the Pool would let him go if he was any good?

    jimiley. god i hate you and your kind. you’re an idiot and part of the reason no one wants to play for us and part of the reason why morale is so low.

    we have missed guthrie big time since he got injured. better than butt, barton and geremi combined. ask any liverpool fan and they’d say they were angry that rafa got rid of him and kept lucas.

    someone people know nowt mate, and you’re one of them.

    harper stayed cos he’s a mackem. fact. we all know the harper story man – he’s happy to tek his money off us. thing is, he’s always stepped up when called upon and don’t a VERY good job. aye he’s a 2nd string keeper, but he’s a decent replacement for the time being. given wanted to go, and who blames him with d!cks like you sitting behind him in the stands.

    i agree with you to some extent about nicky butt, but the big problem with him is that the younger lads rely on him too much when they’re the ones who should be doing the mucking in and running for him. he is 33 for christ’s sake! he was a slow ginga 15 year ago anyway! guaranteed you’re a fat (UnT who can barely run up the stairs nevermind bail arund for 90mins. nicky butt, used correctly, can be an important batty-esque player for us. but we need two from guthrie, nolan or barton to play in front of him.

    oh and spurs came in for harper. and they’re not doing too bad at the minute, as much as that pains me to say.
