Guthrie lined up for Forest loan switch?

Danny boy on his way?
The rumour today is suggesting that Danny Guthrie could be on his way to Nottingham Forest on loan.

The Daily Mail and The Guardian reckon that Billy Davies wants the 23-year-old to help Forest’s promotion bid in the final few months of the season, although as yet this all remains unconfirmed. If true though, I actually think it would be a good move for the player and would give him an opportunity to get some games under his belt and regain a bit of fitness, or it could give him a chance to earn a move for the summer if he wanted to.

Guthrie isn’t going to get much playing time at Newcastle as he isn’t going to get in the team ahead of the likes of Kevin Nolan and Cheik Tiote who are our first choice central midfield pairing at the moment. Then we have Dan Gosling, Stephen Ireland as well as Joey Barton who can all play in the middle of the park. I can’t realistically see Guthrie getting a game ahead any of those either.

When you look at it like that it, then you can see that sending Guthrie out on loan somewhere makes sense for a player who is likely to see his chances in the first team limited.

The midfielder was instrumental for us in our promotion campaign last season and racked up the assists from both a central position and a right midfield position. Some will say that he found his level in The Championship, but I don’t buy that. I just think the lad needs a run of games to get back up to speed. After all. he has been hampered by injury.

If there is any truth then I wish him all the best. As I said, he was an important player last season and helped to dig us out of a hole, so for that he should always be thanked. However, if there is no truth in this and he ends up staying I wouldn’t be too bothered as I feel that he still has something to offer for us in the Premier League.

Good luck Danny!

  2. Aye wish him luck, he’s never gunna make it here.

    Did well for us last season but he isn’t good enough for the Prem.

  3. I rate the guy and he’s shown consistently that once he does get match time in the right position, he can really drive a game for us.

    However, the club has been daft enough to end up with a raft of ‘quite good’ attacking midfielders, so I can only assume that they are going to use loans to both up their value and decide who to keep. What the hell Ireland is doing here when we’ve already got Guthrie on the wage bill, I don’t know.

  4. If the rumour is true I think it must reflect the club’s confidence in getting Gosling and Benny back in the squad soon.

    Jees, sorry to bang on about it, but what the HELL are they thinking? NO right-wingers, NO left-back cover, NO experienced PL strikers, but for one position we’ve got Nolan, Guthrie, Barton, Benny, Gosling, Ireland and Vukic. SEVEN players. It’s daft.

    While I support the idea of buying bargains (Vukic, for example) with a view to keeping the best ones and selling the others at a profit, you do not do that at the expense of building and keeping a balanced squad.

  5. Just a mention for the sad, arrogant, pathetically alpha male, sexist, and typically bloke-ish Sky Sports News. A prominant young England cricket makes the biggest decision of his life and they don’t even mention it on their website.

    How fckin pathetic!

    I say, good on him – who gives a fck!

    Sky Sports it would seem!

  7. So according to that, since Ashley took over in the sumemr of 2007, that’ll be the 07/08 season NUFC made Β£41.35 million out of the selling of players.

    Take Carroll out of that, Β£6.35mill, not as impressive for a club that’s lost around Β£30mill a season for the past few years. But onwards and upwards I guess

  8. Is it any wonder we’ve gone backwards under Mr Ashley.

    I suppose that’s what you get when you try to make a fast buck and not do any due dilligence – you get a business that’s losing money and ends up costing you fortune to make it worse.

  9. Make it worse?
    A business that now breaks even after losing around Β£30mill a year? A one that is in it’s highest position in the league in years? A one that looks like it’s going to have one of it’s most exciting summers in years in player recruitment? A one that has all it’s best assets tied down long term? A one that isn’t a cemetary anymore for over paid ‘superstars’? I could go on…

    It’s not perfect, but to say it’s worse seems to be lacking in perspective, especially considering where we were only last season, and the season before that.

    On the field it got worse, no doubt. How can relegation be better? As for the highest league position for years, lets finish the season first. Most exciting summer for years in player recruitment? Lets wait and see eh? He doesn’t have a good track record does he? Best assets signed on long term contracts? Does that make a difference? Ask Carroll.

    I agree about the overpaid superstars though.

  11. This should be a good move for Guthrie, he will play and come back to us with confidence again. My only concern is that if Barton is still out injured, we have Ryan Taylor, Guthrie and Routledge all suspended/on loan.

    Does this mean we’re actually going to play Jonas in his correct position on the right and put Lovenkrands/Enrique/Ferguson on the left wing? If Lovenkrands goes there, then Ranger has to start as Pardew wants two up front at home.

  12. @ 6 – why the [email protected] would sky sports news or their web site want to mention anything about a cricket player that takes it up the shitter ?? – if your so upset because they chose to ignore that the back door merchant has decided to come oot the closet then i’d suggest you take it up with – dear deidre – she’s the agony aunt for the current bun..

    she’s always prepared to lend a sympathtic lug hole.

    good luck.

    there is an obvious argument behind why relegation has actually been a god send to the club, maybe not NUFC finances (in teh short term), or Ashley since he had to give us a loan last Jan, but as far as the team goes, out went the individual high earners who couldn’t care, in came a better team ethic and drive who wanted to prove a point, I don’t think you can argue that our team spirit isn’t fantastic and that the players now play as a team, this is only one aspect that has been a positive from being relegated.

    I’m not some childish optimist, in fact I can be incredibly pragmatic at times, but what I see is a club which is the most stable it has been in years, with a core set of players with the right attitude, this gets you points. We have the set up in principle to now push on, where as in the recent past, we haven’t. Pardew has said it himself that this summer is of the upmost importance and he’s right, this summer we have the opportunity to really move on up the league and challenge for 6th-7th.

    Can’t wait to see what happens in the summer personally.

  14. Of the 3 playmakers I see on TV for NUFC I’d say:

    Barton: Sees what will be happening & plays to it.

    Guthrie: Knows his role and ready to react when expected.

    R Taylor: Trying to figure things out as the game progresses.

    That’s what it looks like on TV to me, so I’d loan out R Taylor before I’d let Guthrie go. But, with others fit, I’d let both of them have playing time with another squad.

  15. R Taylor should be sold immediately and banned from wearing a black and white shirt ever again.

    I never really get on the backs of players, but that guy was just tosh and has been since he signed. I keep hearing about these set pieces? Where are they? Is that all he has to offer?

    He is not good enough and should be gone in the summer in my opinion.

    Spot on. Total disgrace. The FA/Man United have clearly given Clattenburg some sort of incentive to claim he “dealt with it appropriately”. There can be no argument with regards to how dirty the FA are now.

  22. Its a fcuking joke but totally expected, They boobed last month when they wanted to ban Ranger because he pulled out of the under 19s but couldnt because they would have had to ban Smalling for pulling out of the under 21s and risk upsetting taggart…

    Bunch of spineless twats, Pardew would fit in nicely.

    I actually think he has made us harder to beat, with less player resources, and has us playing better football, but hey ho. I’m just glad the players seem willing to work with and stand by him. Some fans could do well to follow that example πŸ™‚

    Hughton won the job and nosey stole it

  33. Much as I dislike Ashley and Llambias we can’t blame our decline on them alone, FFS sacking SBR was the start of our decline and we flirted with relegation and over paying has beens ever since
    Yup he has been to blame for a lot but I think we’re prob in better shape and playing the best football I’ve seen for over five years

    No player at any club is unsaleable, the right price will always see a player out the door at any club

    Think some people on here need a reality check
