Gutierrez Has Already Left Newcastle

Jonas Gutierrez has already left the Newcastle area and is now back in Argentina with his family,  as he prepares for the upcoming World Cup with Argentina.

Jonas Gutierrez – preparing for World Cup

Jonas is today in Saenz Pena, and will not play in Newcastle’s last game of the season at QPR next Sunday afternoon.

Of course Gutierrez has been one of the stars at Newcastle during this Championship season, and Chris Hughton feels the player needs a little time off ahead of the emotional World Cup in South Africa.

Chris wants to ensure Jonas spends some time with his friends and family in Argentina, since Jonas could face a tough schedule in South Africa starting June 11th.

That seems fine with us, because Jonas has put his heart and soul into playing for Newcastle this very successful season.

He’s appeared 41 times this season for Newcastle, with 36 starts and 4 goals.

And we’ll be covering Argentina in a blog for the Daily Telegraph during the World Cup in South Africa, so we’ll be reporting on  Jonas and of course a certain Lionel Messi too.

We also hope that Fabricio Coloccini will make the Argentine squad, but that’s looking rather doubtful at the moment.

An Argentina vs England final would be nice.

Comments welcome.

    Frankly, any player who even has an outside shot of appearing at the world cup should have been on holiday since promotion was guarunteed. Lets face it, the whole winning the trophy / 100 points thing is pretty meaningless at the end of the day, sure, it was nice to be presented with a shiny pot at the weekend, but I wouldn’t have lost any sleep if it went to WBA.

    Hope to see Vuckic on the left flank against QPR!

    Yeah scared me too.

    I don’t mind him taking off. A little more space in midfield for the last game but we don’t really have anyone else pushing for that position. Maybe we could slide Vukic in there.

    A good idea all round – give the lad a proper rest, which will mean he’ll be fresher both for the WC and next season. He’ll also appreciate having a manager that looks out for him. Maybe give Colo a rest too?

    And yes, give a youngster a run out, we’ve got nothing to risk now – home record intact, silverware won!

    Is Colo still on to go with the Argentine squad? Is Lovenkrands still an option for the Danish side or did he opt out? As for Saturday? Give some youngsters a run out. After all they may figure well next season. I can see Forster and Krul pushing Steve Harper for a first team opportunity on a regular basis- why not, that is the sort of on your toes squad we need.

    I see Man City have applied for an emergency loan for a keeper from the FA. Perhaps we could offer them Krul and see what he can do in the top flight? Just a thought.

    An interesting thought G. Must have a clause where he cannot be cup tied or play against us. That will give Forster a chance to understudy Harper too. Hopefully Vukic will more chances as well – cos the money bag wolves my come head hunting him before next season. Ashley must not sell potentially our best players.

    @G – as far as I know Man City are not allowed to take a goalkeeper under contract with another UK club. I think they have to get one out of contract. Similiar to when Manure got Goram.

    G – give them Harper few a few hundred thousand and give Krul a run out for us.

    @Ericles – Steve Harper says Forster is the one he most fears for his position as Number 1.

    We’ve all seen how good Krul is so Forster must be a bit special if he’s supposed to be better.

    Personally I’d one of them to be given a chance in the carling cup next season. Have a “cup goalie” like a lot of teams do.

    If we don’t start giving them a chance they will leave. Arsenal scouts are already supposed to be looking at Forster

    Jamesthefirst, as far as I understand it the transfer window only affects players under contract at any time. Players can move under freedom of contract regardless of wether the window is open or closed. From what I have read ManCity have requested to make an emergency loan move for a keeper for the last 2 games of the season (no details given on which keeper). I simply meant we could offer them Tim Krul for the last 2 prem games, should they be allowed. I have no idea if they will be given permission or not, or if they have somebody else in mind, but it could be usefull experience for him?

    @G – why would we help Man City??? Krul would have his head turned and wouldn’t come back.

    When they were wasting millions on attacking players, they should have thought about the goalkeeping position. Make them suffer for it.

    Jonas been outstanding this season and a personal favourite of mine.
    He deserves time off before the WC.

    Hope Argentina have a great tournament and finish 2nd to our very selves!

    I wouldn’t see it as helping man city, as much as mutual benefit, for both us, city, and the player himself. Lots of people bang on about giving him some first team, well lets see how he copes with 2 prem games with city. He is under contract with us, so if city want him, they can pay a big fee. Plus, those in the know tip FF as the better keeper anyway, and if it all goes pete tong and he has a mare he might wind his neck in and stop banging on about first team football… all this assuming City are even interested in taking him. Like I said above, it’s just a thought.

    “We also hope that Fabricio Coloccini will make the Argentine squad, but that’s looking rather doubtful at the moment.” Moreso after his performance against Ipswich I should think. 😉

    U rotten swine…..I felt the blood drain out of me. As fongct says @ 20 its very good man management & will also do us no harm with the argies. Well done again chrissy, its sometimes just the little things that make the differance. Hope Colo makes it aswell, glad I’ve got the world cup to keep me occupied til next season!
