Danny Guthrie has warned bottom of the league Plymouth Argyle today, that they face a wounded animal at St James’ Park tomorrow.
Danny Guthrie – Newcastle is like a wounded animal – watch out Pilgrims!
The 22 year-old midfielder is expected to come through big time for Newcastle this season, and Danny is convinced that losing at Blackpool was merely a temporary setback.
Guthrie has been the goal hero at St James’s Park with goals against Leicester City and Huddersfield Town, told the Evening Chronicle today:
“Sooner or later we are going to impose our style on people.” “We’ll attack them and a few of our chances will go in.”
“With the tempo of our play we will shine through.” “Especially at home.” “It’s a place where we can score a few.”
“We’ll take any win at the moment though rather than having backs to the wall.”
Guthrie has always said that to be a world-class player like Lampard and Gerrard, he has to score goals from his midfield positon, and is aiming to get into double figures this season.
“There is no better place to play.” “Everybody wants to score game-winning goals.” “Hopefully I can keep it up.” “But as long as we’re winning I don’t care who scores.”
“It was Coloccini at Cardiff and Carroll at Blackpool, so we are spreading them around.” “We’re doing well at the moment overall, we have nicked a couple of 1-0s and there have been different scorers.”
“The only thing I want to see us do is kill games off earlier and not have the 10 or so minutes at the end where we are being pushed back.”
Newcastle are hoping for another big Championship crowd against the Pilgrims on Saturday, but unfortunately the defeat against mid-table Blackpool may impact the size of the crowd.
The biggest crowd of the season is the near 44,000 gate for the game with Sheff Wednesday last month, which the lads won 1-0.
Guthrie hopes to see some attendances hit the 50,000 mark before the season is out, and we’re syure we’ll have some sell-outs at home, if the lads can continue their push for promotion, although results like last Wednesday’s were a huge disappointment for fans who are sick of an under-performing Newcastle from last season.
The Coca Cola Championship biggest ever crowd was set by Sunderland in 2007, when they attracted 44,448 against Burnley – so we should be able to beat that several times this season, as long as we continue to remain at or near the top of the league.
“The more the better.” “If we keep winning at home the fans will keep coming and it also will keep us up there.”
“They are a huge help in the home games.” “Look at Leicester and Sheff Wed they were very close games but we edged them.”
“They get us through it.”
We need a win tomorrow, and we should be able to do that tomorrow afternoon, against bottom of the table Plymouth Argyle.
