Jonas Gutierrez – everybody wants to beat us

The South American told the Evening Chronicle today:

“Everybody wants to beat us.” “Everywhere we go that will be the case, it will give teams a famous result.”

“For us we want three points everywhere we go because we know it can keep us at the top of the league.”

“In some of the games we have lost it has been difficult to tell people we have lost because we’ve played well and you can’t believe what you are saying.”

Gutierrez is still waiting for his first Newcastle goal, and he will be waiting  for some time if he keeps missing chances like he did in the first half against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

Jonas missed an absolute sitter from just 5 yards out, when he had an open goal, but still managed to slip and send the ball careering over the bar – it was was hard to watch – almost as bad as the one Andy Carroll missed, although Andy made up for his miss with a wonderful goal on 68 minutes in that game.

The Argentine International continued:

“We have been creating a lot of opportunities in the last few matches and been causing sides problems.”

“When we have conceded goals it has been difficult because it can be frustrating when you concede and don’t take your chances.”

“We know that when we aren’t in control in games, we have to keep the ball a lot more.” “If we do that we will create more opportunities to score.”

“We are supposed to be the big team in the Championship so we have to keep it better.” “Other teams are looking to hit us on the counter and break quickly, so we have to be aware of it.”

Chris Hughton’s side will look to put a winning streak together if they can get Simpson, Steven Taylor and Coloccini back into the side following injuries, as they face the Blades and then Peterborough United at home, before the two week break.

The Argentina international went on:

“We just need to keep going really.” “By playing the way we have in the majority of games, we’ll win more than we lose.”

Jonas is right there, so let’s hope we can at least win the next couple of games, and we’ll be in really good shape.

    I’m hoping we have this team available for monday night:


    Subs: Krul, Kadar, Tozer, Gutherie, Lua Lua, Lovenkrands, Harwood.

    Bring on Gutherie, Lovenkrands and Harewood after 65-75 mins.

    If Jonas can up his standard especially the end product, I think we can win almost the game this season. But if he can do that he’s the perfect player so MA will sell him next season.

    Got to got with ginkoh on that shout like. Jonas would be the perfect player, but for his final ball. Considering he is an Argentine international he really should be able to cross a ball well. I would rather play him inside to be honest as he terrifies defenders when he runs at them, however, given our lack of wide men that would leave us very open to counter attacks.

    “Everybody wants to beat us.”?
    Em, isn’t that the idea? or is there teams (even kids) who don’t want to win?
