Gutierrez couldn't have picked a better role model
Toon new boy Jonas Gutierrez has yet to kick a ball for Newcastle United but his words today will no doubt go down well with the Geordie nation.
For Gutierrez is hoping he can emulate Nobby Solano as he looks to make tracks on a successful career on Tyneside.
And as most United fans will know if Gutierrez can be half as popular as Nobby, he can leave St James's Park with his head held high.
Solano's popularity was underlined when Sir Bobby Robson opted to axe the little Peruvian when he sold him to Aston Villa for peanuts.
And when Solano made an emotional return to Newcastle, fans chanted his name on the same day that Michael Owen arrived at the club and 20,000 fans packed the Leazes End.
Gutierrez arrives here with a reputation of a player who likes to put himself about and that will go down well with United fans.
The winger is also a natural provider of the ball and with plenty of targets to aim for in Michael Owen, Mark Viduka, Oba Martins, Andy Carroll and Alan Smith, he could give the Toon's strikers plenty of options from out wide next term.
And in a summer which has resulted in little in the way of transfers to shout about, as it stands many are looking for somebody to pin their hopes.
Over to you Spiderman.
