Fans’ React On Twitter To Jonas’ Discrimination Win


Newcastle fans have reacted favorably towards the discrimination law suit win of Jonas Gutierrez over Newcastle United.

Jonas suit claimed that Newcastle acted against him when they found out he had cancer and that Newcastle deliberately did not play him so an automatic contract extension clause did not kick in once Jonas had started a certain number of games.

Fans point to the shambolic running of Newcastle United under Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley which will end up with Newcastle being relegated this season, after we only just avoided the same fate last season when Jonas had a great game and scored one and made one.

    ‘Arms length’ refers to the fact that the left hand will be passing money to the right hand.

    Previous previous thread again.

    Jonas often looked worse than he was because he was being fouled so often without any protection from the ref.

    I don’t think he fell down often or even at all, not without good cause anyway.

    BBC summary of the case.

    Midfielder Jonas Gutierrez was dropped by Newcastle United because of his cancer diagnosis, an employment tribunal has found.

    Sorry I don’t think that happened.

    Just shows what a good brief can achieve.

    1) How many competitive matches have we played whilst MA has been the owner and what is the win percentage?
    Anyone?

    2) Nit defending the club, but it seems that they should gave extended the period of matches for Jonas to automatically trigger the one year contract extension, to reflect the time he was completely out of the game. I would suggest this is inadvertent discrimination rather than a conscious decision made because of his cancer treatment.

    I wonder if we the supporters could sue them for failing to provide what we want.

    Jizz’s summary of the case.

    Waaa, Waaa, the club’s perfect and so is fatty, miscarriage of justice in fattys favour, Waaa, Waaa.

    Yes it was the excellent brief, the big bad bully him. Obviously the judge is a big bad bully too for picking on poor fattys regime and finding them guilty. Again.

    Nothing at all to do with the actual truth. Nothing whatsoever.

    Disability legislation is pretty clearTakes more than a good brief to win a tribunal.Charnley and Pardew described as evasive and lacking credibility
    Truth is Jonas deserved better – we could have done with him at LB this season
    Dont suppose the equality act or workers rights feature too highly in North Derbyshire – this club is both arrogant and incompetent

    Jonas played right back for Argentina

    Gutierrez was found to be a “credible and convincing witness”.

    Former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew “was able to deliver his evidence in a confident, convincing and articulate way”.

    My thinking was derived from someone earlier stating we have only won 9 matches since AP left. I instinctively thought we had not won that many in his last season. I know P45dues overall win percentage was not to be sniffed at, but even the running court case could not help commenting on how contradictory his statements were.

    You are probably and, for myself uneasily correct, about limiting MAs win record to PL games, or PL seasons, as at least maintains a certain level of quality.

    Troll.

    Because let’s face it, yours isn’t an opinion born of love for NUFC as testified by the fact that the insidious regime led by your hero can do no wrong and hasn’t ever since he’s been here.

    It’s an opinion born of love to wind up and use vile insults of which racism is just one of many you little maggot snot.

    Unfortunately for me and many others, you infest this blog with your toady cretinous self and steal valuable oxygen in the process.

    After the West Ham game

    cyprus // Jan 16, 2016 at 10:17 PM

    Hard to single out anyone really. Shelvey had a brilliant debut. Elliott made a couple of great saves. Janmaat has been incredible lately, back to his best. Colo has been an ideal CB, probably the best CB in the PL last two games. Colback: did he put a foot wrong. Excellent in both positions. Wini: I said it, he plays well, we win, not, we lose. Sissoko is a monster, terrifies the opposition with his surges. Mitrovic tried and tried. And, dare I say it, is the real Perez back? This was a top 4 performance. Long may it last.

    You forgot the rest. Conveniently.

    The tribunal said Pardew, who was manager at the time Gutierrez was told he could leave, delivered his evidence in a “confident, convincing and articulate way”.

    But it said it was “vague and generally unconvincing ” in relation to a crucial conversation with the player in November or December 2014, when his future was discussed.

    “Ultimately, on the balance of probabilities and taking into account our assessment of the respective credibility of the claimant and Mr Pardew, we preferred the evidence of the claimant,” said the report.

    Not being funny but Benitez have had plenty of time to motivate the players but because nothing have changed who’s to blame the manager or the players.

    Jibberish,
    Why didn’t you post the whole comment about the media trained liar Alan Pardew?
    “The tribunal also commented that Pardew’s evidence was delivered in a “confident, convincing and articulate way” but was less well received “in relation to a crucial conversation with the player in November or December 2014, when his future was discussed.”
    Basically the few fans that believed that we had a last minute bid for Nzogbia turned down and that we really did want Gomis were a lot easier to comvince than a qualified panel.

    I am very pleased that Jonas won his case. These tribunals are often biassed in favour of the employer. It must have been difficult. The evidence for the two charges he won must have been well beyond the balance of probabilities.

    The judgement’s opinion that Pardew was a confident liar and Charnley an unconvincing one rings true.

    I am amazed that there are still any regime apologists, let alone on here. You can fool some of the people all of the time though – just look at Trump’s percentages.

    Sounds about right in all matters Charnley.

    I have to say I like Jonas and hate the present regime BUT I am surprised he won his case. You just had to look at comments on this blog at the time to remember at the time he was past his best. Yes the club didn’t want to give him a new contract but not because he had cancer but because he was an aging player. Yes he had a fantastic game against West Ham but he couldn’t sustain that form over several matches – which is what happens when age catches up with you.
    Also those of you crowing about Jonas winning his case – £2m could buy you a decent defender in the Championship!

    Blackley – your post earlier about Penfold not knowing how many internationals were in the team -really comes as no surprise. It confirms suspicions that he is not a football person.
    Any toon fan would be able to have a decent go at answering the question but Penfold being unable to answer suspports the notion he has no football credentials whatsoever.

    martoon…I think there were mixed reviews on Jonas at the time. I think many blamed Pardews team set up and having to babysit the LB. Sure there were those who said he was done. Luckily these things aren’t settled by reading posts on a football blog!

    Jonas has done us out of a decent Championship defender. Incredible.

    As for sustaining great form over several games. The odd game, here and there, would sure have come in handy. Let alone that effort, leadership and passion. Imo anyway.

    martoon,
    For a guy that HaTeS this regime you have seriously gone out of your way to defend it over the last few years, including Jib as a mate on here to confirm it. You’d think we were hard up when only Anita was bought but then 19/30M was spent in January depending who you believe. 2M is probably spent on tbat ridiculous youth set up every year or Riveries wages.
