This is the statement Newcastle have just released:

==========

Newcastle United can confirm that Ryan Taylor and Jonas Gutierrez will be released by the club when their current deals expire on 30 June 2015.

Managing director Lee Charnley said:

“Ryan and Jonas have both contributed significantly to Newcastle United over a number of years and on behalf of the Board, I would like to place on record our sincere thanks to both players for the excellent service they have given the club.”

“It was a great pleasure to see Ryan and Jonas come back into the team in recent weeks and compete at the highest level after the injury and illness battles they have had to overcome.”

“To come through those difficult periods with such strength and dignity will have given hope and inspiration to many.”

“And it is clear that our supporters have a deep connection and affection for both players, as does everyone associated with the club.”

Gutierrez joined the Magpies in July 2008 and in seven seasons on Tyneside made 205 appearances for United scoring 12 goals.

His performances at the end of this season contributed significantly to United’s survival in the Premier League and of course that special goal in the final home game against West Ham, and the reaction of everyone present, is something all Newcastle supporters will remember.

Taylor overcame two knee ligament injuries to return to action. He made 110 appearances for the club, hitting 10 goals, and will of course be best remembered for his free kick winner at the Stadium of Light in August 2011.

==========

That’s a very good statement from the club.

This is not a big shock since both were expected to leave the club – and we should be getting Newcastle’s retained list soon.

It’s good that Newcastle have released this statement for the two players who have been at the club seven years and given good service –  it shows a bit of class.

Jonas and Ryan will go down in the annals of Newcastle United as two of the bravest and most courageous players ever to have worn the famous black and white stripes, because of their battles with illness and injury respectively – away from the playing field.

We wish them both the very best in their future careers, and they both leave the club with their heads held high.

    Good club servants and loyal to the end. Sadly both are no longer prem standard or at least able to offer consistent performances over the full season.

    I would of definitely kept guti as a squad player with his passion, handwork, knowledge of the game and his character being invaluable off the bench imho. Still has more to offer than goofy and alien heed combined.

    Yet another blinder played by the club.

    Who is sufficiently qualified to make these decisions? The tea boy and the scout? The two who brought us Cabella and Riviere?

    The horse is bolted to the cart but the cart goes before the horse. If the horse is pushing the cart is the horse moving forwards or backwards towards it?

    We’ve discarded the player who basically kept us up and decided to stick with “forget the ball”

    Great bit of business that. Well done penfold you little no necked twat.

    On his last performance I’d have guti over all our other wingers even with one leg.

    I think it’s the right decision to be honest. Jonas goes out on a high instead of slipping out the backdoor in 12 months, and Ryan Taylor was clearly knackered after those two long term injuries.

    I would imagine it was Graham Carr Blackley.

    Well this has disappointed me, I thought Jonas had just about did enough to earn a place in a 25. If they don’t fill that place with quality I won’t be happy at all.

    If this means they are keeping Sammy on I’ll be even more disappointed.

    Okay so who is it who decides that Jonas and Raylor go??

    Raylor was not good enough but Jonas could have been useful surely the new manager should decides who stays and goes though??

    Does that mean Sammy stays then ?

    Thats a big chunk of wages just been freed up Jonas was a high earner and pretty sure Raylor is on like 20k

    Clearly the club ( Chanley ) has made a decision of the head not the heart.
    Only problem is that Newcastle is a club of the heart.
    Ryan has his place in toon folklore and his dedication to getting back to playing after his injuries is admirable but clearly he has been more cautious ( understandably ) of late to protect his fitness. Hope he finds a new club or new role which he can flourish in.
    Jonas has elevated his status in the Toon Hall of Fame to a new level due to his personal courage and that second goal against West Ham. He clearly has a huge personality and if he wants to keep playing then I hope he finds a good club. However if he was to play locally say for the likes of Carlisle then perhaps he could be a given an Ambassador type role at the Toon especially helping with the Foundation and Sir Bobby Robson fund raising as well as involved with coaching or particularly motivating the youngsters to achieve more with the club.

    Absolutely clueless bunch of cretins. Jonas has easily been our best player since he came back. Says a lot for the decision making of the ‘football board’. Another season of the likes of Gouffran and Sissoko awaits. What a terrifying thought.

    Charnley had the nerve to use the word dignity? Where was his and Pardews when telling Jonas to look for another Club as he was finished here?
    This regime truly sickens me to the core.

    Injuries have taken the toll on Taylor struggled when he came back. Jonas did well in a bad side – least he showed guts and determination – would of like to see him stay at the the TOON in some capacity – could of been a role model for the kids/younger players. But there is little sentiment in football

    Should have offered Raylor and Jonas coaching roles they could have worked with the new man rather than Stone and Carver !!

    That would be some step down for Gutierrez he is much better than that. I am from Carlisle and they are awful, potentially good times ahead for them as possibly getting taken over by a billionaire. We will wait and see. But Gutierrez should be aiming higher!

    I’d like to know how long his contract is for and how much he is on?

    Surely this is just a case of keeping a player on low wages on the books to fill a squad place.

    It isn’t based on footballing ability. It’s a cheap option all the way.

    Does everyone not know that the surname Ameobi gives you special standing at NUFC, you get a new contract if you want one (and you generally do as there is no better option).

    Toon,

    It’s Campbell who is away. Not sure what happened to that lad but his form dwindled I think. They probably see Armstrong as the better youngin to keep out of the pair going forward.

    Looks like another summer of lots of people going but nobody arriving,i will be suprised if we get a HC “over the line” let alone any actual players.
    MA must love our wage bill,wonder if he can get players on zero hours contracts ????

    Now u can renew your season tickets as your striker for next season has been offered a new contract his only ultimatum to the club was he is paired up front with his brother the club r giving it serious thought
    ameobi brothers what a prospect next on the list for extending his contract big mike his one wish is to be unleashed more when we get a free kick corner throw in so he can get one header on target
    season ticket holders i wish u a great up and coming season your star players r staying i wish i could bring myself to spend the hundreds you r giving big mike but and i really dont know why i dont f#@#@## want to
