Gutierrez Happy On Tyneside – Expects New Arrivals

We almost saw the Spiderman mask go on Monday night, and that would have been so appropriate.

Jonas Gutierrez made another fantastic run down the left wing, cut inside one player and hit a low shot that was going in until Steve Simonsen again saved the Blades with a great save, touching the ball around the post.

That was when Newcastle were is full-flow in the second half and shortly after that Kevin Nolan got that goal – and what a goal it was.

Well, maybe it’s not too surprising but Gutierrez loves it at Newcastle, and he seems to be looking forward to Newcastle strengthening this summer.

Newcastle’s Argentine international Jonas Gutiérrez said.

“It’s going to be an interesting summer because there will be changes,” “We have gone up with five games to go and I’m sure the manager and the owner will talk about what needs to be done in the summer and where the squad needs to be strengthened.”

“Some players will leave, some will come in. The important thing is we have the time to make sure the right decisions are made.”

“I want to stay. I’d like to play for a lot of years here at Newcastle. I love this club.”

Of course one of the things we now have at Newcastle are players who want to be here, and the players have bonded together and produced almost the perfect season following the calamities of last season.

With Argentines Gutierrez and Coloccini so happy on Tyneside, we wonder if there’s any other Argentine Internationals that could be captured by Newcastle?

One that will not be coming is Lionel Messi, whose 4 goals last night in Barcelona’s 4-1 defeat of Arsenal, was a pure joy to watch.

What a player.

Howay The Lads!!

    The last three players I would want to lose is Jonas, Colo and Enrique. Without their flair and experience we would not have won promotion.

    Other Argies we could get are Biglia as a new defensive midfielder. He’s not big or strong but he is very smart and always seems calm when in posession.

    Garay is an outside bet if he fancies regular football perhaps as a loan deal as we do have a decent relationship with Real (and right so getting £17m for Owen). He’s big, quick and good on the ball therefore could be another possible partner for Colo, competition for Simpson or another option as a defensive midfielder.

    I would prefer Premiership experience but foreigners with the right kind of game at the right price should still be considered, like Juan Albin on a free transfer.

    some more argies at nufc would be great…

    there are some truly great young argentinians out there at the moment, seems like messi being th best player in the world is inspiring a generation who want to play with him at international level…

    perrotti, aguero are probably well out of our league but would love to see someone like pablo piati come in for the wings, maybe cavenaghi up front, and even have a punt for javier pastore as an attacking mf…

    bet theres even more as yet undiscovered talent in argentina as well…

    I’ve been really encouraged by reading the last few posts

    It’s obvious that Jonas, Colo and Enrique love playing for the Toon and want to stay, so I hope they’ve been making a few suggestions to CH about possible transfer targets in the summer

    I wouldn’t have a problem seeing more Argies and Spaniards at the club, as long as they don’t cost a fortune and have the same attitude as the three guys we’ve already got – or four, if you include Xisco 🙁

    A dream mix of players would be powerful, physical and aggressive central European players and creative South American players with plenty of brains and flair.

    I can not stress enough how much I would rather want Hughton take chances on young foreign players than to buy a bunch of Ryan Taylors for inflated amounts of cash. I know we have been unlucky in the past when doing that, but it seems times might be changing around St. James Park and who knows, maybe Hughton and his scouting team will bring us luck in the transfer market.

    His crossing had really improved around mid-season, but it didn’t look great against Sheff Utd.

    I think he failed for a couple of reasons –

    1) His inflated price tag. No-one would have heaped any expectation on him, had we signed him for the 1/2m reported when we were in for him a few months earlier

    2) He was treated badly and this dented his confidence, Darren Bent is the perfect example of a confidence player

    3) He didn’t have the mental strength to succeed here…Look at Collo, was far from a fans favourite at the start of this season, but got his head down, worked hard and his name is now heard blasting round every stadium we play in!
