Jonas Gutierrez – It’s A Sad Day

10:21 am, Thursday, May 12th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 10 Comments

Jonas Gutierrez took to his Twitter account after Newcastle’s relegation was confirmed last night by Sunderland’s easy 3-0 win over a gutless Everton side – a side who resembled Newcastle’s displays for much of the season.

There would be no last game heroics this time around, after Jonas produced his best display ever in a black and white shirt last May against West Ham – when it really mattered.

But then Jonas has guts as witnessed by his successful and courageous fight against testicular cancer.

Newcastle are now a shambles of a club – and that’s being kind.

    It’s sad but deserved, again!

    This is not Newcastle United. We haven’t been united for a decade now.

    Nufc 83
    You asked how you’re plucking facts. It should be obvious, two blatant non truths is either plucking facts or being about as informed as Lee Charnley

    i must say , after watching the game yesrerday , sunderland are a premier league side and we are a championship one.
    Ok you can argue that evertons keeper has never been a keeper, but it could have ben 5 or 6 easy.
    I really thought we would do it , even at half time i was waiting for the error that normally newcastle make and let them back in it , sadly it never happend.
    I still think rafa will stay , although my last 2 predictions have been wide of the mark , i hope raffa dosnt make it 3.

    Sunday is really important for the club, forget the football , forget the players , forget Ashly , Charnley , Carr , Moncur, they are not important at this minute in time , we can deal with them later, what is important is that Raffa stays , that is all tht matters at the minute . forget the result we have to look long term, and by that i mean we must make sure on sunday that raffa knows where his next 5 years years are going to be .
    Its all about Raffa .If he stays this relegation will be much more easy to handle , if he goes , it will be a double whammy amdno way back .
    Give Raffa all the support you can muster for 90 solid minutes make him understand this is not just a ” football club ” this is our way of lifr , our lively hood, our passion , make him want to be part of it , asmuch as he is an adopted scouse , let him see how much we love and need him , make it impossible for him to turn his back on us . We need to it , its our only and last chance or we could be stuck down there for years to come . So sing your hearts out boys

    I’m going with, about as informed as Lee charnley.

    Makes my piss boil when I see pictures of the no necked spineless cnut and the slug.

    Fat slug out!

    Feeling sick. And it hurts even more knowing that Sunderland put the last nail on the coffin. Disgusted. Lets pray that Rafa stays.

    We won’t deal with them later though, will we Stuart.
    We’ll sing our hearts out for Rafa,and slink off to the pub for a moan.
    We’ll be back on Monday to argue that it’s no good crying over split milk and the Spurs game (with nothing riding on it) was our chance to protest.
    Therefore the best thing to do, the argument will go, is keep the faith and look at the positives blah, blah, blah.

    A couple of question. Why do you think the fans have been so quiet over the last five or six years?
    Secondly, why is going in to the Championship maybe just what we needed. We’ve tried that before and where has it got us, five years of dross while Ashley had his baby splashed around the world for free. Why did we need to drop down a division to get rid of Viduka, Martins etc, we could have done that while still in the PL. What possible good can come out of this mess if Ashley remins in control.

    When do you propose we show our disgust then if not at the last game of the season?

    Once the new championship season has started?

    That’s a very long wait. And too late in my opinion because the anger and passion the fans are currently feeling will almost certainly abate and they’ll be allowed to continue unchecked.

    Rafa already knows whether he’s staying or not.
    A few thousand supporters begging for him to stay isn’t going to change his mind is it?

    He already knows we want him to stay, he’s heard it every fcuking week since he’s been here. It’s slightly embarrassing that we’ve got to the point of pleading with a (finally) decent manager to stay.

    No, the regime and of course I mean that fat tub of human waste, need to know what they’ve done through their incompetence and should get both fcuking barrels, before, during and after the match.

    Fat slug out!

    Only Ashley can made Rafa Stay and he have no intention.

    Why ask a clown to do checks on this downfall and have someone to answer to.

    Its the clown itself.
