'Bring on The Mackems'

It might have made more than a few people smile in the past but through Jonas’ non-stop running and commitment, I think there is nobody better placed to be giving the rallying cry in advance of the mackem match, in the aftermath of Wolves.

Along with Davide Santon, Jonas Gutierrez was one of the few to do himself justice against Wolves, including that absolute thunderbolt as well of course.

Definitely a scorer of great goals rather than a great goalscorer!

Jonas had this to say as he rallied the troops for the derby match;

“We lost two points, so we were upset about the result. But now we have to focus on the next game.

Of course that’s a game that stands out. It’s something completely different compared to any other game in the Premier League.

We know what the fans expect from this game – they don’t care if you play well, just about the three points.

We are at home, so we have to take the three points because yesterday, we lost two, so we have to get the win next week.

I don’t score too many and I have three against Wolves. But after this one, I am not happy at all because we didn’t get the three points”.

The disappointment of Saturday is now in the past, it isn’t like a cup final (from what I remember of them…) and United have the perfect chance to hit back against the mackems on Sunday. Now that is one the players can’t afford to mess up.
