The Astonishing Achievement Of Jonas Gutierrez


Jonas Gutierrez, the Newcastle United winger, just completed the Buenos Aires Marathon last Sunday, and it was to raise funds for a cancer charity in his native Argentina, and he ran with others in a team to raise money for the cancer charity.

That’s just unbelievable that Jonas – having gone through chemotherapy treatments recently –  still had the time to do some running, so he could complete the marathon, and I can say from personal experience they are very difficult and the last 6 miles seem like 20 miles. 😀

Jonas put out a tweet after he completed the Marathon on his Twitter account:

“Thank you very much to all the participants of the Buenos Aires Marathon 42Km for the support and encouragement during the race.” 

Jonas was part of a team – shown above – who were running to raise awareness of detecting cancer early, and particularly testicular cancer, which is what Jonas has.

Jonas Gutierrez – he looks in great shape

It’s simply unbelievable that after everything Jonas has been through recently, that he had the courage and willingness to run a marathon – which is not an easy thing to do – for anybody.

It shows you just what a man Jonas is – he’s getting to be a real inspiration.

When is he coming back to Newcastle United, so he can be acknowledged by the fans?

    Small World – reference the £130 million loan.
    Can you explain the “potential” benefits and perhaps hazard an educated guess as to the tax benefits involved in this enterprise.
    I recall an answer at the fans forum where it was said -or words to the effect that the loan benefitted NUFC – the inference I took from the obtuse statement was that it was their meaning it was beneficial tax wise (as opposed to paying off creditors).
    How does NUFC benefit tax wise when they owe Tubbs money – can you suggest any % or amount figures.
    Additionally can you comment on how Tubbs could benfit tax wise for loaning NUFC money – % or figures.
    What is the benefit or otherwise of not paying the loan off or reducing it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Apart from being one of the worst defenders in the epl mike w needs to stop licking his managers arse everytime he opens his mouth his reasons we know are obvious no other manager in the epl would have him in thete first team
    as for thick andy c he is the last striker we need he is injury prone a trouble maker and a drunk who is not even a good footballer if he could not head the ball he would be championship material at best only nufc look back and not forward

    70TWO – a ratchet?
    I thought it would be interesting to get a bit more on the potentials/possibilities of what is involved in these types of high finance matters -from Small World as he said he was au fait with these sorts of “arrangements”.
    Trying to understand these types of arrangements for the average man in the street is most difficult – the rules in relation to these matters are very complex – so it was a matter of trying to pick someone else’s brains.
    The inferred suggestion by some that NUFC is not in debt anymore and all things in the garden are rosey -is quite frankly a load of tosh.

    I can only guess that a zero interest personal loan to a company might mean that the individual would not be liable to taxation on that money as opposed to loaning for interest or investing it elsewhere. The loanee company may also not have to pay any percentage of tax due on interest at source (I think it’s a 20/80 split for taxman/ loaner) due to there being no interest payments. Meanwhile, the loaned money has been used to pay off commercial loans early, do no more interest to pay on those. That’s without going into the reciprocal arrangement of totally free worldwide TV advertising for an ostensibly unconnected brand or brands. ( as well summed up by Ed a few articles ago). That’s the only advantage I see in it. 😉

    Of course it’s worthwhile noting that if Ashley continues to run the accounts on a close credit/debit footing then at any time he wishes to bale on the club, he needs his money back ASAP. i.e. now. Which means that anyone buying the club then effectively inherits the loan, and the debt situation continues anew unless the new owner can make enough profit short term to pay himself back. This is probably why Ashley doesn’t really need to sell, and nobody really wants to buy.

    In summary, the loan has not made the club debt free at all. it’s just paying it’s interest in free advertising, which is pretty hefty interest if you consider what commercial pan-global tv advertising might cost.

    Well done Jonas! You WILL be fine 🙂

    On wanting to be in the top 7, well not on this showing. Most teams feel they have the beating of us… Williamson, instead of wasting time talking with the manager about where you want to be, sit down and think: why do opponents crowd us? Why can’t we do the same? Why do we never score in set plays? What can we change? What is the meaning of this ‘new’ ‘pardewed’ word? 😉

    Tsunki – that you for that input on tax matters -a complicated topic without doubt.
    Will be interesting whether at the next fans forum meeting whether they will follow up with some more financial questions.

    As us bloggers ably debate the pro’s a con’s of corporate law and finance our team manager is busy ruminating over the ‘fret’ from our next opponents.
    What a crazy world.

    Are you sure that’s what he said? It’s sometimes difficult to tell with wor Peter.

    I see the eggman’s been putting the world to rights and explaining the “no debt” situation at SJP. Very dull. Reminds me of his priceless Liverpool’s purchase of Carroll theory.

    They all are mate, players afraid to be shipped out, staff afraid of being sacked, while Bishop sits back and pulls all the strings.

    Bunch of cowards the lot of them, those that did speak out are gone.

    Mac,
    eggsactly, for whatever reason bills felt compelled to come out of hiding today and defend Mike’s heartfelt generosity regarding the loan, he forgot to mention the advertising for SD which really is free. So while Mashley or MASH holdings actually benefit twice from this arrangement it makes no difference to us what so ever.

    @dramma99: They all tow the party line, mate. Moncur’s the same, he’s an ambassador for the club, so he has no option but to sing their praises. As for Beardo… he’s just a lovely bloke. I honestly think he just doesn’t know any better.
