Argentine Could Be On His Way Out Of Newcastle


Jonas Gutierrez rejoined Newcastle United three or four weeks ago, and has been training with the first team squad, and he’s played a few games now, but we would expect Jonas to either move permanently this month – or else move out on loan for the final six months of his Newcastle contract.

Jonas-Gutierrez 4

Jonas Gutierrez – in action for the Newcastle U21 side recently

Although there must be a number of fans who would love to see Jonas back in the Newcastle first team, we don’t think there’s much chance of that happening.

There’s a report in calciomercato.it in Italy today that Napoli are interested in signing the 21 times capped Argentine winger, who can also play at full-back or wing-back.

With Jonas now being 31 and with only six months left on his contract, Newcastle will want only a nominal fee for the man who successfully fought against testicular cancer over the last 18 months, and showed tremendous courage in winning his battle.

Napoli are a good side and are currently in 4th place 10 points behind leaders Juventus, and it would like a good move for the winger, who has played for Newcastle 194 times with 11 goals.

We wouldn’t be too surprised if Jonas moves either on a permanent move or on a loan deal this month, and to help Jonas out maybe Newcastle can give him a  free transfer – if clubs want to sign him – so that he can get a good deal for himself.

That would be some just reward for the good service he has given Newcastle since he arrived in the summer of 2008 from Real Mallorca, having helped us get straight back to the Premier League from the Championship in 2010, in only his second season at the club.

What do you think?

    I adore Jonas truly I do but I can’t believe this would be true

    After what he has been through its unlikely he will be able to get back to the level he was formally at and even at his best Napoli are a step above that

    Unless theyve got a european grandparent signing an argie young player is nigh-on impossible in the UK because of work permits! Appreciate that a few do have italian or spanish passports but many don’t!

    “Newcastle is a big club, it’s difficult because it is run on a tight financial margin. We had to work hard on transfers, the funds for a club that size makes it difficult to understand that we had to build slowly.”

    “I am under no illusions – the football community and there was a concern about it. It was the right time for Newcastle but this was my decision.”

    That’s Pards idea of an explanation? What is he saying exactly? The tight margins difficult for who to understand? Does he mean himself, or us? Who exactly had the concerns? Him? And what were they? And how so the right time for himself and the club to part company? Feeble.

    I manager I admire alot once said “If you cannot move forward, then it’s time to move on”!

    …by that definition Pardew should have moved on along time ago!

    He meant us, the fan’s and quite possibly him too when he said that it was difficult to understand due to the club’s size and history that we had to build slowly because of financial restraint implemented by the slug.

    Thinly veiled dig at his former boss but too little and by far, way too fcuking late. Should of grown a backbone whilst he was here.

    That’s the offices reason Hughton was moved on, he apparently couldn’t move us any further forward. A statement made rediculous by the fact the same was never said of pardew. Barton summed it up well saying it was more to do with club politics and Hughton not being able to get players to sign away their bonuses.

    To all

    There was an interview with De Boers brother (works with him in Ajax youth set up) saying that he definitely won’t move til the summer. He’d also been approached by liverpool 2 years ago and spoke with Spurs in the summer…can’t see him short of better offers.

    They concluded there was very little chance newcastle would be the right fit for his next career move, although nothing set in stone. But I wouldn’t get my hopes up on him.

    As for Remi Garde he curently works as a pundit on french TV covering mainly premier league games, he is interested in managing in England and was over here just before new year (although they didn’t know why). Could be legs in the rumour of him.

    Also on being the right time, I think he knew he was never going to win over the majority of supporter’s again and had enough of the stick he received for 1) the piss poor results and constant hammerings and 2) being seen as a lick arse, lying cretin.

    If we factor in he couldn’t get the player’s in he wanted ie your bent’s, puncheon’s and townsend’s (thank god) and he would be going back into the bussom of fan’s that love him (ego trip) especially darn sarth then I reckon he couldn’t resist.

    His time to speak out was 3 years ago after coming 5th, should have laid down some demands then or gone public. Either fatty gives in or sacks him, he was riding high then so would easily have gotten another job.

    But enough on him, he’s gone now and is somebody else’s problem. Come next season we won’t even see him on any item league coverage as they should be nailed on for the drop with him at the helm.

    Another great tweet :

    Pardew: “I have left a good club. We pulled above our weight at times.” – Like the time he nearly relegated Cabaye, Colo, Debuchy etc

    I suppose this idea of getting in a coach rather than manager is not at all a new one at Newcastle. It’s essentially what we’ve had since Allardyce. Why Keegan quit and what Pardew was for four years, a coach, motivator and public face of the club.

    I can categorically say, without a shadow of a doubt, 100%, make no bones about it that out of those three things you listed that he was only ever one of them. Care to guess.

    Oh go on then I’ll spill. The public face of the club. And what a face it was too eh, smarmy, nose scratching, smirking stinker of a face that mainly comprised of a chin full of faeces that had dribbled out his marth.

    NUFC punched above zits weight only once under Pardew, when we finished fifth!
    The other seasons were his standard.

    I really do wonder if Palace saw his record after December last year.

    I don’t hold Pardew in the low regard that some others do, but I can see how this Newcastle, under Ashley, needs a top quality coaching setup and scouting network, and if that’s what he meant by “it was the right time for Newcastle” then ok.

    I never knew that

    I do think pardews relationship with the fans could have been a lot better had been as clever as he is arrogant
    he viewed as all as thick ( see comments about Southampton)
    we all know the financial restraints around club and why we don’t expect him to openly blame Ashley he could have chosen his words more wisely
    he prob would have gotten a bit of sympathy

    interesting to watch the photos from players training .good to see bigi training with 1st team squad again ,if he cuts out the tiote type mistakes he nust be better than anita. thought andy woodman had went to palace but no. he should try getting the goalies to practice goal kicks they are all poor. thought the picture of ayoze with willo behind ready to tackle was good . ithink he was thinking in spanish i wish. also saw ben dawson with the squad.

    Think Bigirimana has been one of Pardews bigger failings! To be honest Pardew leaving might just possibly save the careers of Armstrong, Bigirimana , Kemen, Satka, Mbabu, Goode, tho maybe too late for Vuckic!
    Pardews record of building up before destroying youth is shameful

    I think Pards first problem there was as much a poor command of English. It isn’t easy at all to interpret clearly what he means without jumping to conclusions. Jesus, what you’d give for some real insight and clarity. Which I suppose you wouldn’t get even if he had the communication skills of Ernest Hemingway, things as they are at the club.

    Pardew is no more ,let it go, Jonas great servant but unlikely to play first team again unless they give him 15mins to get a standing ovation which he thoroughly deserves

    vuckic joined us in 2009 and in that time has only managed 34 games with us or online
    injuries have savaged the lad but he is 22 if he can stay fit he could have a career I don’t think it will be with us
    not sure when his deal expires

    Pardew is not a good communicator and constantly failed to articulate his thoughts. His situation was not helped by the lack of communication generally from the football club. In essence he served as a firewall between Ashley and the fans. The best communicator in Ashley’s time has been Chris Mort.
    He has been much maligned not always for football related reasons.

    Gotta fear for the Chelsea game. Carver as manager, willo n gouff definately starting, an unfit krul or a unfit for purpose alnwick in goal…. Chelsea also 1) looking for revenge and 2) looking to bounce back from spurs…
    Think Carver will go 5-4-1 with krul, janmaat, willo, colo, dummet, Santon
    Sissoko , colback, anita, Haidara
    Perez!
