‘A Positive In This Strange Situation’ – On Loan Magpie Talks About His Delayed Ambition


Jetro Willems gave an interview yesterday to the Dutch outlet VTBL. He scoffed at a recent claim that his knee injury was worse than initially reported. According to the 25-year-old, he is on schedule with his rehabilitation.

Jetro also spoke about the European Championships during his interview. His outstanding form before his injury had placed him back in contention for the Netherlands left back spot.

UEFA recently postponed the competition to 2021. This gives Willems a renewed hope of making the squad next year.


Due to his past struggles with injuries, the 25-year-old hasn’t made an international appearance since October 2016.

Jetro has a positive outlook on life in general. So even in the dire circumstances of a worldwide pandemic, the Dutchman is taking the positives wherever he can find them.

This is what he said about the Euros being postponed to 2021:

“The European Championship? For me, the postponement is a bright spot. When the rumors went, I thought, ‘That would be great for me.’

“That I have a year longer to fight at the European Championship selection, I see as positive in this strange situation.

“I also do not know what will happen next season. I have not yet been there with Eintracht Frankfurt to talk about it.”

Jetro also verifies that talks with Frankfurt about next season have yet to happen. He’ll find himself in a similar situation to last summer where he needs game time to push for the European Championships once again.

Hopefully, his recovery goes as planned, and Newcastle can get him on board once again for next season.

    No, theres some great ones all over the globe.

    Most cultures have them about certain major events, must be in peoples nature.

    Even if you think you don’t buy into them I bet you’ve wondered about JFK once or twice.

    My response to your comment about the wedding, guests and your second cousin led to me responding with ‘’I’m lost for words’ (aka ‘whoops’). I’ve no reason to doubt what you posted..

    conspiracy theory , Mike Ashley started this virus . you may ask how , well he put the club up for sale the Arabs came in with a offer . Ashley shit himself because he would be losing out on a money maker. he got pissed up puked up all over the place . the virus spread like wildfire the Arabs backed off never to be seen again . the moral in this tale is Ashley is virus to our club we need shot of him A.S.A.P.

    Why 10,000 spaces at St James’ could be the tip of the iceberg for clumsy Mike Ashley

    https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/10000-spaces-st-james-could-17993440

    Earlier this year, Ashley had the ideal chance to sit down with some of the Press on a visit to Tyneside but rather than expand on his plans – or give some inkling as to why a club that has been up for sale for three years remains unsold – the only answer back was a polite “no”.

    Without any guidance from Ashley himself his only aim seems to be to fend off relegation from the Premier League year-in, year-out.

    Even then, given the financial clout of the big boys and the financial plight of others, that could be classed by the sporting business experts as a success these days.

    But Ashley will not even give the people who come through the turnstiles the courtesy of an explanation.

    OP – the best explanation I saw of the JFK shooting was that he was accidently shot by the G man in the car behind when his gun went off as he stood up in reaction to the shot from the book depository that missed.
    Everything made sense.

    I’ve seen that one too, I agree, everything that seems odd falls into place when the Secret Service guy is brought into it.

    I’d dare say its exactly what happened.

    Well if you want pics of the wedding complete with Bono feel free to leave me you’re email and I’ll prove it.

    Although I really dont get what’s so unbelievable about it, we all have family and we are all human, it just so happens that some of my family who I dont get to see that often or are billionaires.

    I literally brought it up because I thought it was a nice anecdote to someone elses comment that my cousin married her. I dont want ppl like you making me look like I’m making up stories which would be bat sht crazy.

    the rifle that Oswald used was a Mannlicher–Carcano italian made .

    they had a guy a top marksman tried to replicate the shooting same height same distance with a moving target he did it , after trying 3 or 4 times . so no i dont think Oswald shot him …

    I’ve watched the documentary etc, for some reason I had it in my mind the guy was in a car in front.

    He shouldn’t have been using it, new guy, the rest had been on piss night before.

    Watched it probably 10 years ago or more on the interweb
