If you had written about what would happen to Jonas Gutierrez when he returned to Newcastle earlier this year, after his gutsy and winning fight against testicular cancer – nobody would have believed you.
But Jonas has written his legend into the annals of Newcastle United, by putting is some very good performances for Newcastle in their fight against relegation and today he was terrific – and made Moussa Sissoko’s goal after 54 minutes with an inch perfect cross from the left wing – and then sealed the all important win with a goal with his left foot which was nicely deflected past goalkeeper Adrian.
Jonas Gutierrez – this will become a famous photo of the Newcastle legend
For the record, Jonas appeared 11 times this year for Newcastle with that one goal today, and in his seven year career on Tyneside Jonas has played 205 times with 12 goals.
And Vurnon Anita had his best game ever for Newcastle when it really mattered, and he was excellent in the middle of the park today for the side – well done Vurnon Anita.
indeed Jonas and Anita got 93% of the vote between them, and they were the two outstanding players today with Janmaat in third place after another good game.
Jonas was a hero today and will forever be remembered in the annals of Newcastle United.
And the players did themselves proud today – and maybe now one or two of them may even stay – after seeing what it like to play at Newcastle when they give 100% and fight for the shirt.
The Newcastle fans today were simply magnificent and St. James’ Park and the pitch looked absolutely fantastic.
