Jonas Gutierrez was easily our Man of the Match on Sunday at Anfield with 74% of the vote.
Jonas Gutierrez – outstanding at Liverpool
Jonas is in good form right now, and provided the only threat up front on Sunday, but it just wasn’t enough against a far superior Liverpool side, who have become very strong again under the short reign of Liverpool idol Kenny Dalglish.
Kenny’s quickly instilled that Liverpool passion into his players, and they look very good at the moment, and should do much much better next season, that;s for sure.
Gutierrez was giving 19 year old left back Flanagan such a hard time of it on Sunday, that Kenny Dalglish had to switch full-backs and put the more experienced Glen Johnson up against the Argentine International.
Newcastle were basically undone by their own errors though, and captain Kevin Nolan called them schoolboy errors yesterday, is his dismal account of the poor Newcastle performance, which he even seemed embarrassed about.
But Jonas is now looking only to the next game it seems, as he said this yesterday:
“When the team loses I’m disappointed – I’m not happy,” “We can’t do anything now. We have to think about the things we did wrong and don’t do them in the future.”
“We have to think about that. We have three games left, and we have a big opportunity to take points, because we have two games at home.”
“We now have Birmingham, and we have to be strong, and not repeat the mistakes that we made.”
Gutierrez is in form and we mustn’t forget that in the 2-0 win at Birmingham in mid February, the Argentine set up both goals for Peter Lovenkrands after just a couple of minutes, and then Leon Best early in the second half.
It was a very good display away from home by the Magpies that night.
Newcastle fans want to see those silly defensive errors cut out in the next game on Saturday, when Birmingham come to Toon, and a win would be exactly what the Doctor ordered.
That’s what we are hoping for, and all 3 points on Saturday and we’ll be just delighted – it’s as simple as that.
Howay The Lads!!
