Danny Guthrie had another good game in the middle of the park today against his former club Liverpool.
Danny Guthrie – in good form for Newcastle
And it just so happens that Danny came back into the team against Norwich City, and Newcastle have now won three games in a row.
And the way Danny is playing these days, he may still get a decent contract offer from Newcastle – but he also wants more playing time, and may leave the club because of that.
We hope he stays.
This is what Danny said on the Newcastle web-site after the game today:
“I’m still a Liverpool supporter, so I obviously want to see them do well but today was all about us and we did the job – and a little bit more, I think.”
“It was built up as a big game – we both want that top six spot – so it was nice to win, and nice to win in style as well.”
“It was a good performance. Liverpool have a very talented squad but we were right at it today. Everyone knew their job and everyone did their job.”
“The back four were magnificent all game,” “They didn’t give them a sniff and obviously the front three are all on song. They’re frightening, all three of them.”
“They always say it’s not easy to come in in January but Papiss has made it look easy and you can just see he’s going to get goals. “
“And he works hard for the team as well, playing up there on his own, so I’m delighted for him.” “I’m delighted.”
“I came into the team when we hadn’t won for four games and we’ve knocked out three wins on the bounce.” “I don’t want to blow my own trumpet, but maybe I’m the reason!”
There was no mention of Danny’s injury so maybe it was only cramp?
It was another excellent team performance from the Newcastle side, and we could even shock ourselves this season, if the lads keep racking up these wins.
It was a magnificent result today and all the Newcastle players seemed to be on song.
It’s now off to Swansea on Good Friday, and that will be another tough game against a very good footballing side.
