This Man Will Give 100% And Should Be Given A Chance


Jonas Gutierrez desperately wants to play a part in Newcastle’s last 12 games of the season, and we know Jonas will give 100% when he plays for Newcastle, and we’d love for John Carver to give him a chance.

Jonas Gutierrez – fit and wants to play

There have been rumors about his contract for some time now, and it seemed rather dramatic when last season he made only two substitute appearances for Newcastle before being shipped out on loan to Norwich thirteen months ago.

That seems to almost validate the rumors that if he played a few more games for the club then Newcastle would have to offer him a new deal.

We don’t know if that’s true or not,  but it’s rather strange he hasn’t played for the first team for almost 18 months.

And then of course Jonas had to battle testicular cancer, but he has won that battle, and he has declared himself fit to help Newcastle through the end of the season.

It’s not like we have a lot of players to choose from, with so many injured,  and Jonas is an experienced player and a good player too, so we are hoping he will be given a chance by John Carver.

Of course as usual it will not be John’s decision, and it will be Lee Charnley who will have to make the decision if Jonas  can play for Newcastle again this season – and if so – for how many games.

Jonas has become more match-fit with a number of appearances for the Newcastle U21 side recently.

With Jonas having made 194 appearances for Newcastle with 11 goals so far – maybe the magic number is 200 appearances that will trigger an automatic contract extension.

If that’s true that still leaves at least five game he can play for Newcastle, so that’s almost half the games left this season.

We really hope to see Jonas again – and we also think that both Ryan Taylor and Mehdi Abeid will start the game on Saturday against Aston Villa, and there’s two more players who will give everything in the back and white of Newcastle.

A win on Saturday is just what we need against Aston Villa,  and then things will look a lot better after that terrible display on Saturday.

Comments welcome.

    What we need is for someone very clever with I.T skills to hack into Cashley’s bank accounts and put his money someplace he would never think to look in, and hey presto we would be able to negotiate with him in order to get back to us OUR CLUB in exchange he can have his money back and f**k off and never ever come back.

    I’d offer but I seem to have limited skills with a PC, ie my mouse keeps sodding off…..So any takers????

    I can already pronounce LlanfairPG (in full). I generally find I can resist the impulse. It’s quite a pretty name for a village, but boring in parts.

    Interesting team you picked for the villa game, I’m intrigued to know who’s going to score in that line up mate.

    You’ve picked:
    Sissoko, Abeid, Cabella
    Riviere, Perez, Aarons

    Do you know Cisse has scored more league goals than all of them players you’ve picked?

    The Good thing is the teams in the relegation zone haven’t moved much.I keep close eye in that area every week until we officially safe.Relegation is the only thing that concerns me,I don’t care about anything else.I don’t want villa to go down but they lost big time last week.
    So they will give us hard time on sat.And that is a must win game for me because the villa game look easier on paper than the rest of the next 4 or 5 games.I think Leicester,Burnley and QPR will go down.
    Still expect good continental coach to be announced after we assure our safety!!

    Investinyouthtoon – if you were going to nick Ashley’s cash and put it the last place he would look then surely you would invest in Newcastle for players – he would never look there.

    Reference the actual article – we always seem to not want to admit that the reason Jonas didn’t get a game for us for so long might have been because we had better players available at the time.

    Yes – he always gives 100% but talent has to play a part too. Having said that – he may be able to do a better job at Left Back than Haidara.

    Give Jonas a chance, at this point it doesn’t really matter who plays, he might do better than anyone else, we are still paying him anyway.

    Regarding Santon, he has done very well at Inter. If we were going to let him go permanently why not take Yuto Nagatomo as exchange deal. Yuto is excellent wb can play both flanks, he can deliver good crosses and score goals, very quick, good stamina, not injury prone.

    The problem with us right now is lack of good crosses, this is either we don’t have good target man and lack of players in the box or lack of players in the box due to we rarely cross the ball, it’s like chicken and egg. We need a target man if we are going to put crosses in or long balls. The only good target man we have right now is also a winger, Sammy Ameobi. We need probably someone like Huntelaar or Crouch or Lacina Traore or Dzeko.

    Two articles about Remy Garde in which he is quoted as saying he still loves his boyhood team Lyon who he thinks will win Ligue1 this year.
    He is ready to return to management in Summer having cleared his head.

    In both articles Newcastle gets a mention .

    In the Eurosport one it is clear he has spoken to NUFC but they have told him to stay schtum.

    The Foot1 article seems to conclude by saying it’s a given that he’s coming to the Toon.

    Santon…a deal has been made with Inter and it seems we won’t be making money on this deal.

    …sadly he was our best LB and definitely a top 5 PL LB when fit. I think the way he plays doesn’t really thick the boxes with – lets just say – our style 😉

    Maybe our problems are we invite too much pressure and don’t really need a modern fullback. He will do well under Mancini.

    One thing I just don’t get is Dummett gets praise on here but Santon wad labeled a poor defender. There’s a paradox for you!

    About Jonas! Since information has been spare no one really knows what’s going on with him and why he is playing.

    Some have mentioned a clause in his contract and others that he’s not good enough.

    It all comes back to one thing – since he played most of last season why wasn’t he sold last summer when he wasn’t clearly going to get a match?

    Santon always seemed to over commit when tackling , going to ground too easily , thus getting stranded , great going forward mind.

    Basically – he will be raring to go in summer – whether with NUFC or not , he’s not saying – he’s defo talked to us but the club told him not to comment at the moment.

    Santon was a decent defender, probably our best, although I’d say it is close between Haidara and Santon. He flattered to deceive going forward, and often got caught out of position and as Jeff said, regularly committed himself when he didn’t need to. Getting rid of him still doesn’t make much sense, given our lack of defensive reinforcements and our unwillingness to spend.

    On Jonas, when he was starting everybody was calling him Pardew’s pet, as they didn’t think he was up to it anymore. Is it a case of him getting better by not playing, or is it just emotion ruling here for people? He would give his all, probably, but he has also played a part in some awful performances over the years.

    It would be nice for him to get a game near the end of the season at home, so he can get the send off he deserves for his service to the club. Why should we look to what is evidently the past when, if we are to play people who will give their all, their are plenty of youngsters who may or may not make it, but given the chance could be the future.

    Jesper, as for him not going in summer, I guess it would have been difficult to offload him given he was at that point still recovering from his illness.
