Jonas Offers Advice To Mike Ashley

Within the next 24 hours it’s expected that Newcastle will issue their retained list of players, and they will allow Jonas Gutierrez, Ryan Taylor and Sammy Ameobi to move on after their contracts run  out at the end of June.

Jonas Gutierrez after scoring on Sunday

And fans will be sorry to see Jonas Gutierrez leave after he has played so well for the club this year, after coming back from  a two year fight with testicular cancer, and he had a great game on Sunday against West Ham and made one and scored one and was out man of the Match.

He was also on the Premier League team for last weekend and the European team and judged the top European player of the weekend.

Not bad for his final game at Newcastle – his best ever performance for the club when we needed it most.

Jonas thinks deeply about the club he’s been at for seven years, and he has offered this advice for those who run the club, when asked how he thought this summer would go:

“That’s a good question for the owner.” “I think the club has to learn what has happened in the last few years when they have been in charge of the club.”

“It’s important to think about good and bad decisions. It’s good for learning, and to improve.” “They have to take note about what has happened during the last few years.”

“They have to think what they are going to do, if they are going to go forward. They have to think about what is best for the city.”

A number of fans would like to see him stay on Tyneside, but on the other hand this is a perfect time for him to leave the club – and he will be remembered as a hero and legend for Newcastle in future years.

Jonas Gutierrez played 205 times for Newcastle with 12 goals.

Comments welcome.

    (fitting that I’d have to repost my first comment of the year.)

    Time for my annual comment now the close season has begun.

    Well, that was a fairly turbulent 6 months, no? Jeeeez Louise.

    I don’t really know what to make of Ashley’s (staged) interview. A man who has finally seen the light? Maybe. A ploy to boost season ticket sales after extending the deadline last night? Probably. However if this was the case you’d expect them to have their shit together and announce their intentions for the summer before their renewed early June deadline.

    I am clinging on to the hope that movements have been made behind the scenes at Benton and its simply NDAs which are stopping it from getting to us. Therefore I am reserving my frustration and despair until at least the 10th June, the date the club themselves have given to win supporters back. I feel this is the only fair (and sensible) way of looking at it.

    In light of this article, I’d love to see Moyes at Newcastle, he’s astute enough and very competent in terms of man management and tactics, his time in Spain can only have improved him. Failing that. I’d be more than happy with the likes of Schteve (although people highlight his lack of ability under pressure). There are only 2 coaches which I would be disappointed with, to be completely honest, and they are our very own John Carver, and Roberto Di Matteo, because he is notorious for playing a brand of football which really would not sit well in the North East.

    This guy is harder than Tiote. And infinitely more commited. And he seems to be intelligent, too. Player coach anyone? 😀

    If Jonas’s beatified we’ll know that the Pope’s a Toon fan!

    Seriously though, if the Mackens have been turned down by both Moyes and Allardyce and Spurs are signing and bidding on players, it proves what a clown Charnley is.

    He’s had nearly six months to get an HC tied up and where are we?

    Persisting on the track to disaster!

    A small piece of cheese found behind the fridge after 8 weeks is better than carver. Probably has developed better social skills too.

    Carver is awful I every respect of being a manager, he needs to be released from the club in any capacity or we will be in trouble again next year, the players must be sick of turning up on a morning and listening to the same drivel that comes out of his mouth.

    A complete overall of coaching staff is needed, if it doesn’t happen the club will still be a basket case, and people should boycott. The ‘horse needs attaching to the Cart’ allegedly, one horse trying to carry a boat load of donkeys is still a knackered horse.

    The manager is the most important man at the club and for me De Boer or Garde plus coaching team should be brought in, some identity given to the club and along term plan put in place, Charnley looks like a proper kiss ass, and will do things on the cheap as its clear this is what the fatman treasures most.

    Clubs still doomed.

    I’ve been a season ticket holder for the last 17 years and I’m determined to give it all in if Carver is appointed as Head Coach. It would be the ultimate slap in the face to all fans.

    I’m on a plan where my season ticket automatically renews in February; I didn’t cancel as I foolishly was hoping they would start fresh and make favourable appointment this Summer. Sadly, that is looking increasingly unlikely.

    Can anyone advise me how to cancel, even though I’ve effectively renewed? Some fans have just told me to cancel my direct debit and that it’s doubtful the club won’t chase this up. I understand some of the direct debits have already covered next season and I wouldn’t get that money back but I couldn’t care less, as long as I don’t have to watch Carver pedal more crap.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    As crap as it is being a fan with all this uncertainty imagine the players. Not knowing wether it’s worth staying in your job or which tin pot puppet they’re gonna stick in their faces next. Wanting to play your best and enjoy your football and getting no support or direction. Can’t blame anyone who decides to do the offs. What would we do if that was our working environment?

    Isn’t he Sissoko’s hero? And Sissoko is now being much more positive about staying at Newcastle. Does he know something?

    Maybe we should be looking at getting shot of Coloccini too.

    We should be rebuilding from the back. Our goals against record was nothing short of disgraceful.

    Basically our defence hasnt improved since the Keegan days when he didnt mind letting in 2 because he was confident we were going to score 3 or 4.

    These days we can’t score and we can’t defend.

    And the bit inbetween isnt up to much either.

    Jonas as coach assistant of gourvennec (a good coach in France with pleasant football at the opposite of Carver, Pardew, big Sam, Bruce, who are peasants football) or Laudrup
