More Guthrie gabber

More Guthrie gabber

For the third or fourth time this week Danny Guthrie has gone on record with some more soundbites that make Peter Beardsley seem positively off-the-cuff. Reeling out the great list of football cliches Guthrie praised his current centre midfield combatant to the hilt as he raved about his time so far at SJP. Guthrie said:

"I've played with Nicky for most of the season, and it's just great to play with someone who has been there and done it. When he tells me something, or when he shouts at me during a game, I take it on board because he knows what he's talking about.

I played with Joey (Barton) as well. He was great to play with as well. They're two different players, and I don't mind who I'm playing with, as long as I'm playing. I was only 11 or 12 then. Nicky played for a great Man United side which won the treble. He's great to play alongside people like that, and I learn from him every day.

When I was at Man U he was playing. You always watched the first-team games, and he was the one playing alongside Paul Scholes, Roy Keane and top players like that. I wouldn't have thought I'd be playing with him a few years on! There isn't many better places to play than St James's Park, which I've found out this year.

Everyone always talks about it, like former players and players that are here, but it's something else to actually do it. We need to improve at home. We've drawn a couple at home we should have won, and dropped valuable points, but the Portsmouth result will be a massive boost for us, and if we can stop conceding at home, we'll be all right.

It's been a win and a draw, or a win and a loss, but once you start putting wins back to back, that's when you start moving up the table. After the Portsmouth performance, we can start doing that.'
