Jonas Gutierrez Seems Like A Born Winner


Our new signing Jonas Gutierrez says he cannot wait to make his home debut against PSV Eindhoven at St James’ Park tomorrow night.

Jonas Gutierrez – cannot wait to play in front of Newcastle fans

We would expect Keegan to start Jonas tomorrow night against Dutch powerhouse PSV, and the Argentine international has already showed he has lots of skill to bring to the Newcastle team next season.

Jonas also works like a Trojan during the games, so he will no doubt be a big favorite very soon at Newcastle.

Gutierrez has also made a big impact already with his team-mates as well as the coaching staff on Tyneside, and it forced Kevin to say that it’s as if the lad has already been at the club five years, he seems so much at home.

Jonas is a popular player, and he got a great reception and hordes of well-wishers while in Mallorca, his old club.

Jonas talked to the Evening Chronicle today about his excitement at potentially appearing before the fans tomorrow night:

“I cannot say how much I am looking forward to playing at St James’ Park for the first time.”

“We have some good games coming up against PSV Eindhoven and Valencia.”

“They are both technical teams and it will be good for me to get familiar with the home stadium.”

Gutierrez was so popular in Mallorca with the Spanish media at the ONO Stadium, that cameras were flashing all over the place when he appeared wearing his new famous Newcastle United colors.

Speaking about his trip back to his former club he said:

“It was good to go back to Majorca and see some of my friends.”“I wanted to go there and help Newcastle win something at my old club.”

“I wanted to play as soon as I got here.” “I had to wait, but that moment came on Friday night and it was a good experience.”

“The aim for us is to do much better than the last season. I know that already. “We’ll look at it match to match. But I look forward to next season a lot.”

This boy seems a born winner, and we’ll be able to take a good look at him tomorrow night at St. James’ Park – and we hope his Argentine team-mate Fabricio Coloccini has signed for the club by then.

Maybe Fabricio will be introduced to the crowd, much like Habib Beye was last year, and the Senegal International went on to become Newcastle’s player of the season.

Maybe that will be a good omen, but we need to sign Coloccini first!

    Fantastic. Lets just hope that attitude rubs off on his team mates. Oh and why is that ref showing him his arm pit…weird.

    I liked the look of Jonas against Hertha Berlin. With our striking problems i’d like to see him play more central just behind the striker. i think he could do well for us there this season.

    I haven’t seen him play yet…how does he move the ball around? Does he command/get in to space, track back, cross well? I imagine a more agressive Nobby, is that wide of the mark?

    His movement was good against Hertha but his crossing was a wee bit poor but that is only one match and until half way through the season i will reserve judgement the same with bassong who was getting some ridiculously premature comments the other night.

    How good would it be if we done a mass unveil of 3 players, that is why Coliccini deal looks like it is taking ages.

    Coliccini, attacking mid and a Striker or
    Coliccini, Defensive Mid and an Attacking Mid…

    That would fairly lift the morale. Sadly unlikely…

    I would of hoped Coliccini would have been signed yesterday and was able to play on wednesday to get used to the rest of his team mates.

    Looking forward to seeing Jonas play tomorrow as he did well on Friday.

    Shame it looks like Smith is gonna be playing again ! No Owen, No Oba, Faye? Beye? We’re gonna be playing a good side and hope we make it a good match.

    i thought he was a breath of fresh air against berlin, his movement was good and he has confidence on the ball. Doesnt do too much and plays a pass instead of running around with his eyes on the grass.

    Steve, I wasn’t trying to encourage people so sign up to nufctv (doesnt appeal to me either!) what I meant was this looks like it could be a forerunner to the announcement of a signing! 🙂

    im also a member, i like watching the player interviews and little gimmicky things: such as; each player naming their hardest opponent, proudest moment etc. Gives a good insight in to the type of characters we have in our squad

    Chris F – a place holder page that is at the top of the news headlines – and has only been added in the last hour – which means there is a story developing 😛

    Try clicking on HOME at the top Chris F and you will see or just go to straight nufc.co.uk

    I was impressed with gutierrez, he looked pacy, a hard worker and likes to get at players. He often looked for a one two but some of our players wernt clever enough or good enough to give him it back. I hope he plays just off alan smith 2moro night, with duff or zoggy on the left.

    I think that page is just being used for testing the site, there have been issues with the video play back on the member pages and they now have a Test page on the member news area.

    Hope I am wrong…..
