Forgotten Man Reveals What’s Been Happening


Jesus Gamez has made only two appearances for Newcastle this season, after he joined the club in early July from Atletico Madrid for a fairly nominal fee.

The 31 year-old has been missing for a while now, with a long running Achilles problem that wouldn’t go away.

Rafa then instructed the medical staff to try something different in an attempt to get the very experienced full-back playing again.

Jesus Gamez in training

It seems to have worked and yesterday Gamez was interviewed by Spanish outlet  El Desmarque and explained what has been happening:

“I will be available soon, today I started training a bit with the team.” “I got to play some pre-season, but was screwed up and decided to stop to recover well.”

“I’m very happy, it’s a new experience which my family and I are enjoying.” “Football wise, I wish I was better than I am.”

“I’ve been injured for a while with the Achilles tendon thing.” The truth is that it’s going very well.”

“The team is young, we have many young players and they’re learning the tactical aspects fast, which was needed.”

“The team is gathering concepts and improving very fast.”

“Atsu’s having his minutes and is giving good performances and is counted on by the coach.”

“My dream is to return to Malaga.” “Football takes many turns, I wanted to experience at Atletico and now in English football.”

“It is clear that I would be back, I wish I could retire in Malaga.”

It’s interesting that Jesus has said the young Newcastle players are learning the tactics of the game – which was needed.

When Gamez joined us we though he would be a starter in one of the two full back positions, but injuries and adjusting to the rigors of English football have kept him back.

But now he is fit he will be pushing for a starting position and maybe the best shot at a start would be at left-back where local lad Paul Dummett is currently the starter?

What do you think?

    I hope mitrovic & perez are playing down the centre today. They have great link up & understanding of eachother. Ppl have forgotten this because mitrovic hasn’t been playing.

    I would hope that he does start today marra, otherwise he may be crushed, Not getting a chance when Gayle is out an all that.

    I see Arsenal are 0-1 up.

    Aye if he doesnt start today with Gayle being out where does that put him in the team? Not even back up? Could be punishment for his stupidity from the last game I suppose but Id of thought the public chastising would of been enough

    Id be surprised if he doesnt start tbh

    Aye Sunderland are working hard but the quality difference is quite obvious having said that if they get a goal Arsenal do like to crumble

    Rafa bingo entries have to be in three hours before kick off. Not being a control freak mind, just stating the rules. They’re not xactly complex.

    Anybody else watching the Arsenal game?

    I really would not be surprised if Moyes has a bust up in the dressing room one of these days, he must hate watching his team (for want of a better word) play (for want of a better word) without a single ounce of heart or passion week in week out.

    It’s embarrassing.

    As a football fan I enjoy watching as many games as I can, I find myself, no matter how much i dislike Sunderland, urging them to just do something, anything!

    I’m seeing an Arsenal player in acres of space with so much time over and over again and I find myself shouting at the scum to DO SOMETHING!! I want to run out there and do it for them! That thought makes me shudder… I am NOT saying I want to play for Sunderland!

    It’s truly shocking, I could not give a monkeys (pun intended) about how the Mackems perform but as a spectator of a sport that I love it is so frustrating/disheartening to watch these complete nonchalant displays over and over again.

    It makes me so grateful to see how far we have come, with a group of players who want to win and try their hardest every game.

    I’m going to guess here and reckon Gayle will start.
    Was Gayle not playing on Tuesday because of a niggle or rotation.
    Whilst he will not take any risks to exacerbate injuries just think Rafa is not giving PNE any advanced warning of his set up. Might be wrong -as I say just a guess.

    Still waiting for a decent football topic to comment on.

    What a shame the cameras aren’t at Deepdale today.
    5,260 ticket allocation sold out plus expat purchases , probably the thick end of 8,000 Geordies there.
    PNE expecting their biggest crowd since 2009!

    Mister Tuff…….. Gayle has been declared unfit to travel.

    The Tuff versus Jib banter challenge is better pre match entertainment than ream speculation imho .

    I didn’t about Gayle not being fit, would have went for Mitro instead, this could help Diame as he seems to need a target man to feed off, him and Mitro together will be a right handful.

    An injury, especially to a ‘form’ player, in the run-up to an important match, is obviously a disruption to a coach/manager’s preparation.
    However, it’s a much greater disruption to the preparations of an opposing coach, who in the context of today’s contest, has been preparing a shell-shocked team to compete against a specific opposition player, (who wasn’t part of the 6-1 thrashing!)
    We don’t know when Gayle suffered his injury, (it may have been even before Tuesday’s match)
    Rafa first revealed his concerns yesterday. He has probably been preparing his team in anticipation of Gayle’s absence.
    Simon Grayson’s head is most likely still spinning since Tuesday, Gayle’s non-appearance is a bigger disruption to PNE’s preparation than to Rafa’s…
