Gutierrez, Beye and Guthrie All Out Of Action

Newcastle United have been dealt an injury blow with the news that midfielder Jonas Gutierrez will be out for the next three weeks, and also the Achilles injury to Habib Beye is worse than expected and he may be out up to six weeks.

Jonas Gutierrez – out for 3 weeks

And with Danny Guthrie likely to pick up at least a 3 match ban for his sending off on Saturday is the disastrous game against Hull City, this is not good news for the club.

What else is new?

The 25-year-old Argentine winger suffered a shoulder injury in Argentina’s World Cup qualifier against Peru last week and now needs treatment. And it looks like he will be getting that treatment in Argentina and also undergo a period of rehabilitation there.

A report on the Argentina Football Association’s website said.

“Homero De Agostino, the doctor of the national team, confirmed that he checked Jonas Gutierrez, who has a little fracture in the right clavicle,”
“With the allowance of his club Newcastle, Jonas will stay in Buenos Aires to be treated by the national team’s medical staff.

“He should rest for 20 days and will have the rehabilitation treatment under Doctor De Agostino.”

Gutierrez has quickly established himself as a fans’ favorite at St James’ Park with some great performances of both skill and effort, and it looks like he has been an excellent buy for the club.

Habib Beye seems not to have recovered well from his Achilles injury, and David Edgar had to substitute for the Senegal International on Saturday, and he will also be sorely missed in the coming games.

This is what Kevin Keegan had feared most, that injuries to key players would undermine the squad, which is just not big enough at present, and we’ll have to rely on the youngsters filling in, and coming good for the club, at least in the short term.

Comments welcome.

    Any good news?

    The above article really annoyed me (thanks for posting it p), I felt like us supporters were being personally attacked by someone that writes like a 7 year old…

    Disgraful journalism, It would not suprise me in the slightest if Ashley or one of the outcasts had something to do with it cause there is too much bad blood in there for it to be a journalists perspective…

    Everyone should read the Times article as it is without doubt the worst piece of dog shit journalism i have ever read. Not even from a tabloid either.
    Injuries are killing us yet again, why is this club always top of the injured list. No squad could cope with 6 regulars out for various reasons.

    yessss, another great day in the life of a NUFC supporter………

    when will this stop ?? my guess is never…. 🙁

    I can’t even feel disappointed anymore…let it rip God…..give us your best shot…take the plane down on something hard, i don’t wanna limp away from this wreck 😀

    top of the PhysioRoom again, 10 players out…….great…can’t wait for the Hammers to hammer us…….and Fat Freddy to buy the club back and bring back Bramble.

    no hope.

    And now for the good news, oh there isn’t any.

    Blog still not showing on Newsnow site, I have had to cycle through a ream of old blogs to get to here.

    I agree with the sentiments that the kids are going to have to step up to the team, it’s beggining to look like a make or break situation.

    I have got a feeling Guthrie, Barton, Beye and Jonas will all arrive back against the mackems. Until then we will just have to soldier on.

    Looks like Nacho is going to get a few first team games. He was decent against Hull.


    Taylor —Cacapa—-Colo—-Bassong

    Geremi —-Butt—–Nacho—–Zoggy


    seems a decent enough squad

    He lost his temper and did something very stupid, but if he can channel that aggression into his play like Roy Keane did then it could improve his game immensely.

    Wes toon there is also a story about the ground being built on top of the old newcastle Gallows which is where the gallowgate end gets its name from and we are cursed as are the men who where sent there but that would not explain the 50s era but I also feel we are cursed

    Xsico Golden Boot

    I know a few are not impressed with Xisco so far and he is likely to get judged rather harshly due to the rumours about his transfer and KK. When i first watched the match i wasn’t overly impressed, but after watching it again on football first for the 3rd time i must admit my opinion has changed slightly. Whilst he suffered from a lack of awareness and poor touch at times, these mistakes started to filter out towards the end of the match. So i think this was probably down to nerves mor ethan anything. I thought he worked very hard and popped up in all sorts fo dangerous positions. He got himself on the end of the few decent crosses we actually produces and showed great strikers instinct to get himself on the scoresheet. all in all i feel he played fairly well on his debut considering he has only had one training session with the rest of the squad and it was his first match in the PL.

    What are peoples thoughts of Xisco so far?

    Put it this way, he cost us 6million, Pavlyuchenko cost Spurs 14million and i know who preformed better on their debut.

    Cursed? If we are cursed it’s all of our own making. Effing muppets who screamed and stamped their feet and showed the world what children we are. Ashley’s gratest mistake was standing by his cockney mates instead of taking the sensible route and kicking them out. Are we any different though? Standing by a manager who had walked out on us twice before without a single word of regret? Now we have Ashley being ferried around the middle east, cap in hand desperately trying to sell our great club to whoever shows an interest. Well done! Another great day in the history of Newcastle United. And some people are even looking at fat freddie as some knid of local saviour. Are these the same fools who were screaming for him to sell as he lay in his hospital bed?
    Ah feck this. Ed this used to be a genuine site where fans could voice their opinions sensibly and inteligently – sadly not any more.

    50,000 fans knew it and KK knew it, our squad lacks depth and not enough was done over the summer……

    Yeah we might be able to put 11 players on the pitch at the weekend (a much weakened team at that) but what about cover for the 11 playing?

    Cheers Ashley n co. what a great job you’ve done.

    Atleast Oba might be back?

    Bad news about Beye, I knew he was injured when he played last, you dont become a poor player overnight. Edgar also played on Sat with a hamstring injury, the kid isnt having much luck. He is in the squad for Sat though and might still be fit enough to play. Kadar could come in unless Geremi is plays at LB

    Lost Prophet – Nobody is stopping you from voicing your opinion. Like that post just there, for example. You were able to put your points across unimpeded. Though your insults and spelling (not that I really care about spelling on the internet, like) can hardly be called sensible and intelligent.

    Ok lads n lasses itz time for estranged to bring in some positive news in no-so-postive times.

    Well we got 4 points from 4 games?

    Letz juz say we lost at Manure – it was a given

    Drew with Bolton – With thier sh1t football

    Lost to Arsenal – it was a given

    Won Hull –

    Wud be a decent prediction at the start of the season.. so 4 points aint that bad.

    Now letz look at the MIGHTY SPURS afther all the spending

    lost 3 and drew 1

    leaving them with one point….

    eaststander – There was a lot of spin in that statement. Mike Ashley is not an idiot, furthermore he has PR people to help him with matters like this. His propaganda has been frighteningly effective, I admire that in a way.

    Yes estranged, I don’t think Tottenham have bought well at all. I just don’t understand the purchase of Dos Santos…I watch a lot of Spanish football and he got pushed off the ball easily in Spain, how will he manage here?
