Newcastle’s home game against Wolves tomorrow could be a pivotal game of this season for the Magpies.
Jonas – in action against Sunderland
And with injuries and suspensions hitting the Newcastle squad this year, Ben Arfa, Dan Gosling, Leon Best, Alan Smith and Jose Enrique will miss the game through injury, and Ryan Taylor and Cheick Tiote are both suspended.
Add to that the fact that Newcastle have but a single win in their last 10 games, and it’s just good enough, so the lads desperately need a win tomorrow.
Newcastle’s home form has been little short of abysmal this season too, and the side have only 1 point from their last two home games, and the last home win was the 5-0 trouncing of West Ham, but that was back on January 5th.
Jonas Gutierrez talked about the current situation:
“It is a lot better situation than we were in two years ago, but we don’t want it to get any worse,” “The Wolves game is a big, big game, there is no point trying to hide that. We don’t want to make things any more difficult for us.”
“Up until a month and a half ago, we would have said this has been a good season, but in the last few weeks we have dropped too many points. Results have dipped and we have allowed ourselves to fall back into danger.”
“We are not in immediate trouble, but we have made things difficult for ourselves. We need at least another two wins to be safe I think.” “It is very tight. I think from tenth place down, any of those clubs could end up going down, including ourselves.”
“We have three games coming up which are going to determine our season, but by far the most important is this weekend against Wolves. It is at home against a team below us in the table, to put it plainly, we need three points.”
“If we can get three points against Wolves it will take the pressure off against Villa and Manchester United. We will not be able to relax, we cannot relax until we are mathematically safe, but a win against Wolves would be a big step towards achieving that target.”
Good and accurate words from Argentine International Jonas right there.
It’s a huge game all right tomorrow, and to use Admiral Nelson’s famous words before the Battle of Trafalgar, and changed just a wee bit – Newcastle expects that every man will do his duty.
And similarly to use the famous words of Newcastle fans everywhere in the Geordie dialect:
Howay The Lads!!
