It's crazy!
It's crazy!
Danny Guthrie reckons Newcastle United won’t have it all their own way in the ‘crazy’ Championship.

The midfielder said:

When you look at this division it’s a bit of a crazy one. Everybody is capable of beating each other. And that has shown in some of our games so far this season. It’s something we can’t lose sight of.

Every team still sees us as a scalp and we’ve got to be prepared for it. We won’t have it all our own way this season, that’s for sure.”

Guthrie, who chalked up his fifth assist of the season against Peterborough, goes on to say:

We’ve had a few games where we went through a period when the ball didn’t bounce for us. Things weren’t happening for us in front of goal. In our last two or three games it has done that, it’s evened itself out.”

Spirits sound high though and Danny Simpson’s still getting ribbed about his goal:

It was definitely a cross, especially on his left foot! There was no way he meant to shoot. We’ll take it – we needed a bit of luck. It was an important goal as it put the game out of their reach.”

  1. Big fan of Guthrie like, very tidy footballer. Not sure whether he has the umph for the Premiership but I like his style.

  2. me? :p
    me too BBM, he works hard and isn’t bad going forward or defensively, he needs a little moulding but thankfully we’ve got 2 good models in Nolan (going forward) and Butt (defensively) to help show him the way, overall he’s a solid midfielder who could be a big asset in the EPL – with a little practice
