Jonas Gutierrez scored a great goal yesterday in the first half against Manchester City, and believes Newcastle should have picked up at least a point.
Jonas Gutierrez – after scoring yesterday
After speaking with his fellow Argentinian Carlos Tevez, Gutierrez told the Evening Chronicle:
“Carlos was impressed.” “At half-time, we spoke when we came off.” “He said he was impressed with us, so I offered him a deal, that we take one point each.”
“But he said ‘No way, we are under pressure to win this game’.” “In the second half they had the luck and they scored a nice goal from Johnson.” “The result should have been a draw, though.” “It was a bad day and there were no mixed emotions for me.”
“We lost and I don’t care that I scored now because we didn’t get anything from the game.” “I would rather take something from the game.” “I think we did some really good things.”
“The ref made some mistakes. I don’t normally like to speak about referees, but they had one penalty that wasn’t, and we had one that should have been.”
“It is very disappointing, but that is football.” “The penalty for Manchester, if you look at it on TV, the ref was behind the action. Mike Williamson took the ball.”
“Shola should have had one in the second half.” “Yes, the ref can make mistakes, but it has cost us a great result.”
“Even a draw at Man City is a fantastic point.”
“We had a good game. They have spent a lot of money and it was a tough game. They have quality.” “But nothing went for us – we lost Ben Arfa very early and that was hard for the team.”
“We lost a player in the first five minutes and it’s a big problem for the future.” “We don’t like it because he’s a very good guy and a great player.”
Jonas now has a couple of weeks to prepare for the next game, which is a home game against Wigan, since he’s not currently included in the Argentine squad.
But we have to start winning our home games against relegation teams, otherwise we may live to regret it.
