This Man Will Give 100% And Should Be Given A Chance

Jonas Gutierrez desperately wants to play a part in Newcastle’s last 12 games of the season, and we know Jonas will give 100% when he plays for Newcastle, and we’d love for John Carver to give him a chance.

Jonas Gutierrez – fit and wants to play

There have been rumors about his contract for some time now, and it seemed rather dramatic when last season he made only two substitute appearances for Newcastle before being shipped out on loan to Norwich thirteen months ago.

That seems to almost validate the rumors that if he played a few more games for the club then Newcastle would have to offer him a new deal.

We don’t know if that’s true or not,  but it’s rather strange he hasn’t played for the first team for almost 18 months.

And then of course Jonas had to battle testicular cancer, but he has won that battle, and he has declared himself fit to help Newcastle through the end of the season.

It’s not like we have a lot of players to choose from, with so many injured,  and Jonas is an experienced player and a good player too, so we are hoping he will be given a chance by John Carver.

Of course as usual it will not be John’s decision, and it will be Lee Charnley who will have to make the decision if Jonas  can play for Newcastle again this season – and if so – for how many games.

Jonas has become more match-fit with a number of appearances for the Newcastle U21 side recently.

With Jonas having made 194 appearances for Newcastle with 11 goals so far – maybe the magic number is 200 appearances that will trigger an automatic contract extension.

If that’s true that still leaves at least five game he can play for Newcastle, so that’s almost half the games left this season.

We really hope to see Jonas again – and we also think that both Ryan Taylor and Mehdi Abeid will start the game on Saturday against Aston Villa, and there’s two more players who will give everything in the back and white of Newcastle.

A win on Saturday is just what we need against Aston Villa,  and then things will look a lot better after that terrible display on Saturday.

    I see the club are set to hand Heardman a new deal. If we can pick up a result on Sat I’d be tempted to give him a few games this season to see how he gets on. It isn’t like our forwards are free scoring anyway.

    I see Carver was able to block the deal for Cisse to leave the club as he was needed. Funny he didn’t feel the same about any defensive cover.

    Maybe there is a clause in his deal. According to the Gazzette, Guti has said that it will be a board decision if he plays again…

    Yep it’s up to the board, the same board that Charnley said would not interferer in the head coaches duties, and would not be involved in team selection.

    Apparently if Jonas plays 8 more times he is automatically given a year extension to his contract.

    The board want him gone, so no chance of him playing then.

    The Cisse deal was just a few weeks ago to the UAE which has a later window .
    With regard to Heardman and the other young’uns – Rob Lee had it right when he said JC would get much more support if he was more gung ho and give them a run out.

    who is heardman I have never heard of him

    on cisse the only input he would have had been highlighting the fact we could go down with out his goals I think if we had 35 points or more he would have been gone

    does look like he will go in the summer if were looking to sell

    Carver never claimed to have blocked a Cisse sale.

    He was quoted as thanking Charnley for not selling him.

    Now why they didn’t or couldn’t sell him’s another matter. I’m sure if there’s been a decent offer in, Cisse’d have been sold.

    Short of players or not’s never stopped them selling in the past!

    People are talking completely put of there arses. He might be able to do a job he should be given a go, he was always a more useful player than gouffran who I cant see any value in. He had one bad season where he was played week in week out and was expected to be playing full back and left midfield with Pardews shit tactic. Play to his strenghts he can hold it up and he can dribble a bit his legs have gone but he still should have decent feet in tight aeras.

    The management are lunatics for letting Santon go. He is our best full back by a mile. If Inter offered us £15m, I still wouldn’t let him go. What an iditic decision. Even worse than Ben Arfa, Marveaux and Mbiwa.
