Jonas – 100% Is Answer, Not Formations

8 years ago

One thing you always get from Jonas Gutierrez is 100% commitment and that is what he says is the answer to Newcastle United’s current run of poor results, rather than playing a certain team formation.

Looking to get an elusive three points on Monday, this is what Jonas had to say to the Chronicle;

“We have different types of formations, we can play 4-3-3, 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1.

I think we have different types of players and so that gives the manager different options and different formations.

It depends on the game and the teams that we play against.

What’s more important is that the players who play in these positions try to their best and try to give 100%”.

I think the formation debate has gone way over the top and I think if we have any number of our better players out then it is going to be struggle, especially when Ben Arfa and Cabaye are missing, exactly who is going to create chances on a regular basis, no matter what team formation they are playing in?
