International Star Returns To Newcastle


Jonas Gutierrez, who is recovering from a cracked clavicle in his shoulder, will return to the Newcastle United club early next week, to continue rehabilitation from a shoulder injury.

Jonas Gutierrez – returns to Newcastle next week

Jonas suffered the injury while playing for Argentina earlier this month, and the 25-year-old is right now back in Argentina receiving treatment.

Gutierrez has been sorely missed by Newcastle in their last two games, and stand-in coach Chris Hughton is hoping that Jonas can return to the side within a couple of weeks.

Chris said today:

“It’s just a process now, not a matter of days, unfortunately, but I’m hoping it’ll be three or four weeks from when he suffered the initial injury,”

“He’s been in Argentina, he’s had medical treatment over there. He comes back early next week to maintain what he’s done so far and to carry on his rehab.”

“It’s his right clavicle that he’s cracked, but he hasn’t had an operation.”

Certainly Chris needs some luck with his players, and having Jonas fit and well, within two weeks, will be very good.

We need some good news and luck from somewhere – that’s for sure.

Comments welcome.

    hi everyone….

    if you havent already heard about this local group of north eastern business people, who along with a fan based stake in the club…are looking to revolutionize the way football clubs can be run. i am sick of the “sack the board” campaigns, McKeag then Fletcher. on top of that weve fought against being labelled as a “selling club” , or a “yo-yo club” add to that the swivel chair and revolving door antics of our managers (10 in the lasst 14 years…howay) well its crap innit….lets be honest….

    so take out ten mins to read http://www.savenewcastle.com and if that interests you then do plz check the NUFC forum at our local newspaper Evening Chronicle, http://icnewcastle.icnetwork.co.uk/ the man with the plan is called MAD PETE i know wind up/scam/bull shitter …its an odd username, but Peter is one loyal and passionate business man whose commitment is second to none. heres the Vision of this consortuim, which is found on the http://www.savenewcastle.com webpage

    Vision
    Top flight football clubs in England are becoming increasingly disconnected from their core fan bases. More and more clubs are being bought out by foreign individuals and investment groups which do not have any ties to the local community. Along with this disconnection between ownership and community rising ticket prices are pricing many of the clubs core supporters out of the stadium. Our foremost goal is to bridge this growing divide.
    Brief Plan Overview
    We are hoping to get 300,000 fans to purchase one share for £1,000.00 each. The proposed foundation would be set up similar to Barcelona’s with a European style President. Their would be a presidential election every 3 years. Each shareholder would have 1 vote in all elections. The fans would not directly run the club as qualified individuals would still be hired to run the club.

    Note: We are hoping to get backing from several corporations and rich individuals so we will actually be able to raise more than amount directly contributed by the fans. These wealthy individuals will not be given more than 1 share and 1 vote for their contributions.

    More Details Coming Soon…

    do you really have to spam every thread – I think we’ve heard enough about this now and most have made their minds up that it’s never gonna happen.

    the club will be sold within a fortnight by the sounds of things anyway – you’ll never raise the funds in time.

    sorry like – i know your hearts are in the right places but it seems like a waste of time.

    Supports Nigeria’s Newcastle bid
    Posted: 2008-09-24 09:57

    Former Newcastle United Manager, Kevin Keegan has thrown his weight behind Nigerian Entrepreneurs who are working hard to get enough money to buy the troubled Premiership club.

    NVA management boss, Chris Nathaniel, the man behind the deal told KickOffNigeria.com that the former England international has supported the bid by Nigerians to take over the club.

    “We have a big plus in the immediate past manager of the club, Kevin Keegan who has supported Nigerians bid to buy Newcastle. He loves the club with great passion and he is ready to do anything for the club to remain in the Premiership. He told me he is in support or our bid to buy the embattled club,” Nathaniel said.

    If we can pull this through it will a massive boost for the country and Africa as a whole

    Chris Nathaniel

    Nathaniel also revealed for the first time that four prominent Nigerians are behind the bid to buy over the club.

    “Four prominent entrepreneurs are involved in this deal for now but they don’t want their identities to be revealed for now. They have contributed 350 million pounds so far for the project.

    “But we are still beckoning to other well to do Nigerians to join this lofty and result oriented venture so that we can beat the deadline before another person or persons get the advantage over us (Nigeria) in this race to buy the club. We are targeting another 100 to 150 million pounds to make a strong offer of £450m to £500m to seal this deal once and for all.

    “You know I initially said £450m but I think it may be okay to have another £50m to buy players when the deal is done.

    “Keagan told me he may consider returning to the club if we eventually buy the club. This really renewed our strength and resolve to buy the club if you consider that Keegan is a house old name in England and a powerful and influential figure whenever Newcastle United is talked about,” Nathaniel told only KickOffNigeria.com on Tuesday.

    “I got lots of goodwill messages from Nigerians in both in UK, Nigeria and in America. Everybody is very excited about the prospect of Nigeria’s consortium of owning a Premier League Football Club,” he disclosed.

    Nathaniel reeled out the benefits Nigeria would gain if the country’s Entrepreneurs eventually buy over the club.

    “We expect Newcastle United Football Club to be Nigeria’s favoured second team. We will also make youth clubs in Nigeria a feeder team to Newcastle. Then when the structure is put right the club itself will generate enough fund to sustain itself.

    “It will also bring good Public Relations for Nigeria because a lot of negative things were rumoured about the country which is not true. This will help rebuild confidence in Nigeria in the world.

    “If we can pull this through it will a massive boost for the country and Africa as a whole. I am confident that Nigeria won’t let this opportunity slip off their hands,” Nathaniel disclosed to KickOffNigeria.com.

    Here.. i wish you’d shut up about saving our team.. You lot made this what it is.. a total debacle.. Some of us just support whichever 11 lads pull on the shirts and get on the pitch. Stop getting us into the news for reasons other than good football! No wonder the country thinks the place is riddled with little charvers.

    King Kev Foreva If no one else has responded to you about the problem of the text being cut off on the right side on this site, there is a solution. I got the right-side cut off too but instead of using the site link from News Now, just google ‘Newcastle United blog’ and go DIRECTLY to the site, not via News Now. That way the right side isn’t cut off.

    I am uneasy too-why offer 450m for a club worth 250m which the owner is desperate to sell, it seems to me they are so desperate to buy that they will offer over the odds.
    50m for transfers-after that the club has to be self-financing?

    Nice article about the Nigerians. I am starting to think their may be something in it as Keegan is keeping very quite (of course this may be due to a pending court case with Ashley).

    It does appear to be a worry that for the first time their spokesman has stated they are looking for the right amount for the price of the club and 50 million on players.

    50 million for players is only the bare minimum if you what to keep midtable these days.

    So although they may be good willing Nigerians, they may not have the punch we need/want. Then again its 30 million more than our current owner could muster, but the question will be can they sustain that level of investment or even better it?

    Fans pledge £1m to save United

    Published Date: 24 September 2008
    NEWCASTLE United supporters have pledged more than £1m to a planned fans’ takeover of the club in just two weeks.
    Last week, 600 fans had signed up to the scheme to buy the club from owner Mike Ashley.

    And in the last few days, a further 500 people have said they will contribute the £1,000 needed from 300,000 fans for the buyout to take place.

    The Newcastle Fans United group, fronted by supporter Peter Lee and football agent and lawyer Mel Goldberg, are hoping to set up a new foundation, similar to Barcelona’s, in which fans vote for the club president every three years.

    They are hoping to get backing from corporations and wealthy individuals, so will not actually need the 300,000 fans for their scheme to work, though the bigger backers will not be given more than one share and one vote.

    Last night, Mr Lee, 45, from the Midlands, released more details on how the scheme would work.

    He said: “We are delighted with how things are progressing, and we haven’t even come out with the finalised plans yet. We hope to have those ready for the public in October.

    “At the moment, I can say there will be four levels of membership. The first level will be those who have contributed £1,000 or more. They will get a vote on club matters, a share certificate, and entry into a lottery to buy match tickets.

    “For any fan who has another 50 years left of supporting the club, that is the equivalent of only £20 a year.

    “We will also offer life memberships for £250, 10-year memberships for £100 and annual memberships for £25.

    “These will enable you to be entered into lotteries to buy tickets. But it is important to stress that we are not taking any money yet.”

    The club would also be a lot more closely linked with the community, and would take part in events.

    Nearly 15,000 people have now logged on to the savenewcastle.com website, with many of those pledging financial support.

    The full article contains 352 words and appears in n/a newspaper.

    Lets be honest if the Nigerians came into town, they would do so for the benefits they can get out of the club.

    They will not be here because they have loads of money and just love football, like the owners of Man Citeh and Chelski.
