More Heart Felt Tributes To Newcastle Player

Diego Tardelli, the 29 year-old Atletico Mineiro striker scored his first two goals for Brazil on Saturday night in Beijing as they beat rivals Argentina 2-0 to win the Superclasico de las Americas – and they were helped by a rare penalty miss by Lionel Messi.

The Argentine team unveil banner of support for Jonas

Brazil went a little way to restoring their pride, after the disaster of the World Cup when they were hammered 7-1 by Germany in the semi-final, after being 5-0 down at half time, after conceding four goals in the first half in an incredible six minutes of pathetic defending.

That was the biggest margin of victory in any World Cup semi-final and was the first time since 1975 – a 62 game run – that Brazil had been beaten at home in a competitive match.

Brazil’s biggest defeat before this was a 6–0 loss to Uruguay back in 1920.

But enough of this football trivia – the reason the match was significant was that the Argentina team paid tribute to Newcastle’s Jonas Gutierrez, as they unveiled a banner before the game – Fuerza Jonas – as shown in the picture above.

It basically means the force be with Jonas – or be strong Jonas – as the Newcastle United winger fights his testicular cancer with chemotherapy treatment.

And the tributes seem to keep coming in, and in our last game Swansea showed their class by putting a message of support on their big TV screen during the game.

Jonas is obviously going through a (very) tough time of things – so here is his Twitter account if you want to send him a message of encouragement to help him through a difficult time.

    Like it or lump it…..a win on Saturday and Pardew lives to fight another day.
    A defeat, or even a draw, and it should really be curtains. for AP….. surely …. please.
    I do actually believe that Ashley is now sufficiently aware of his options for the mood of the SJP crowd to be a factor.
    Oh ….. I wish I had confidence in those going this weekend to tip the balance if its needed.
    But nothing is ever as black and white as we hope unfortunately.

    Stay away from SJP. Make a sacrifice or be satisfied with our current status.
    You might not deserve Ashley by attending matches, but I don’t feel sorry for any fan that goes to SJP on matchday.

    There is very little left of what I once fell in love with.
