Argentinian International Full Back in Newcastle!

Gutierrez: Why not?
News has come into the offices of NUFC Blog Interntional that an Argentinan International full back is currently on Tyneside and is ready to play for the Magpies!

His name is Jonas Gutierrez, he is currently 28, and is known for his daring and mazy runs down both flanks. Gutierrez is not entirely unknown to Newcastle United fans, having played for the club since 2008, when he was signed on a five year contract by well known double act, Dennis Wise and Kevin Keegan for an undisclosed sum. Since then he has become something of a fans’ favourite, playing in 115 games and scoring seven goals.

The player has already been helping current stand in, Ryan Taylor, and said of his assistance to Ryan:

“For him, it’s a new position and I know that, so I try to help him when I can.

“But I think he’s playing better game-by-game. He played well against Arsenal, but this was better than the last game.

“It’s normal that the first game we played against a big team was difficult, but he did really well.

“On Saturday, he was even better so game-by-game, he’s getting better in that position.”

Although Gutierrez has covered mostly the right back position for Argentina, most notably for Diego Maradona in the 2010 FIFA world Cup, he is equally adept on both flanks and has said on previous occaisions that he would be happy to cover the left back since the departure of Jose Enrique to Liverpool FC. In one interview he reamarked:

“I’ve always said that I will play anywhere for the team and perform whatever role the manager asks me to.

“Playing further back won’t be a problem for me.

“I would be comfortable wherever the manager wants me to play.

“I have played there for Argentina, and it would not be an unusual thing to do.

“The main thing is picking up points and wins for the team.”

This rather ‘left field’ solution (if you’ll excuse the pun) would also leave a space for new Newcastle United signings such as Sylvain Marveaux, and possibly others to come to the fore. It would also be a solution that would no doubt please a certain penny pinching, pie munching owner too!

Sorry, I couldn’t resist that one but why not?

  1. I’ve been saying that he should drop back in to the LB position ever since we signed Marvueax to play LW… my comment have always been shot down by others saying he was crap at RB but it can’t be any worse playing a RM in LB position, so why not give him the chance to show & I think Marv & Jonas could do a good job for us on the left imo..

    “I’ve been saying that he should drop back in to the LB position ever since we signed Marvueax to play LW”

    Great minds think alike Toon69!

    It’s kinda drifted in and oot of my heed since the World Cup, though not with Enrique obviously. We may be wrong, but there’s nothing wrong with ‘thinking outside the box’ though I usually hate those modern, corporate type sayings.

    There’s always some fans who think they know it all. ;-)

  3. Worky check your email.

    And no to Jonas at left-back, though I’d rather him than Bridge!

    “your a complete waste of a human being”

    Have a word with yourself, grow up and don’t take yourself so seriously.

    We Geordies are supposed to be renowned for our sense of humour, though in your case, obviously not.

  5. Take our most effective winger and put him at full back.
    What a great idea!
    How about Steven Taylor at centre forward?
    Shakes head.

  6. NOOOOOOO did no one remember him @ the word cup @FB never never never, fish and water

  7. @bobbby: I have it on good authority that worky does not actually own a “waste of a human being”. If you can tell us where you heard this scandalous lie, I will get the .org legal department on it immediately.

    Please note: if you do not point us in the direction of the libelous person, you will be held responsible.

    @worky: I’m not ignoring your email mate, since Saturday I’ve been mortal/hungover or busy. Just as an fyi.

    @sikovash: People who can cover left wing:-

    1. Silvain Marveaux
    2. Peter Lovenkrands

    People who can cover left back:-

    1. Ryan Taylor
    2. Jonas Gutierrez

    People who are playing on the left:-

    1. Ryan Taylor
    2. Jonas Gutierrez

    You see what I’m getting at, no doubt. I’d also like to point out that the article was very much tongue in cheek and that the article Worky was referring to was Jonas merely saying that he was prepared to help out Raylor and that he was ‘tutoring’ him at playing on the left. Given that whenever Raylor started in defence last season we all prepared ourselves for a left wing attack time and time and time again – now he’s playing on the left we all thought that we were in for a right wing mauling time and time and time again – but would you believe it! With Jonas to help him out he’s had some corking games!

    Summary: Jonas is not starting at left back, he’s saying that he is willing to help out Ryan Taylor at left back.

  8. Get Cissokho in asap. Or, nearly forgot, also a top notch centre forward and Joey to be offered a new contract.

  9. Thump – its probably wishful thinking but thats what we need just for starters. Even my Mrs can see it. Team spirit looks great but more quality required urgently

    “@worky: I’m not ignoring your email mate, since Saturday I’ve been mortal/hungover or busy. Just as an fyi.”

    Divven’t worry about it Thump, it’s probably better now anyway as I haven’t been much different, though I haven’t had one drink for quite some time now.

  11. Thump says:

    “…you didn’t even drink for the Sunderland game?


    Haven’t drunk for ages Thump. I’m banned from drinking on Doctor’s orders. I have transgressed sometimes, but only in minute quantities.

  12. Just been looking at the spam filter, this ones brilliant:

    I wish to get across my admiration for your generosity giving support to those people that should have help on that niche. Your special commitment to getting the solution all-around appears to be really advantageous and have specifically permitted employees much like me to reach their endeavors. Your amazing warm and helpful tutorial signifies a lot to me and much more to my office colleagues. Many thanks; from all of us.


  13. Another one:

    There are some inviting points in interval therein article but I don’t be familiar with if I make out all of them boldness to mid-section.

    Sounds like great fun being a spammer. Couple tabs and off you go!

  14. Me and my buddy have been arguing about an dilemma comparable to this! Now I understand which i experienced been right. lol! many thanks for the particulars you post.

    What the hell does that mean?

  15. Right on the bubble mate, if not tonight, maybe tomorra, it ain’t gonna be long mate.


    Thanx for asking mate.

  16. Exciting stuff mate! You’re welcome by the way.

    Children scare the sh*t outa me Clint! :-)

  17. I dunno mate, have a look in the filter, there’s loads of em.

    I’m sure Acid has something to do with it though.

  18. You’ve provided me with very definitive information that I needed, but somehow is glossed over or purposely neglected. Your attention to this is greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like a Pardew response, after he’s been asked where the £35 millions gone.

  19. I’ve seen decades of spam, I’ve received several thousand a day through my inbox, and this site gets several thousand spam comments a day too. You wouldn’t believe how refined perversions can become, expecially when they involve genuine virgins from Eastern Europe, or how ridiculous West African scammers can be, and still succeed.

  20. jimbob,
    bairns aren’t that bad mate, i reckon a bit of fear is healthy, sats you up for it, as it’s not as bad as you’d expected.
    If you get me?

    i’ve had a look before, they weird me out, i reckon a stranger drug than acid is responsible there mate.

    “Is it stuff lost in translation?”


    Rule number one seems to be that ALL West Africans are multimillionaires who are facing imminent death with oesophagal cancer, and rule number two ssems to be that ALL Eastern European virgins seem to pop their cherries in some highly bizarre and sometimes stomach churning ways, possibly involving Donkeys or Ponies.

  22. Looks like this particular one agrees with your left-back solution:

    I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    In other words Worky, you need stats to back-up your Jonas idea. :-)

    “In other words Worky, you need stats to back-up your Jonas idea.”

    It was Diego Maradona’s idea, divven’t blame me!

  24. Worky do you mean Esophageal?

    Hope I’m not being ignorant here, but never heard of oesophagal?

  25. Jimbob says:

    “Worky do you mean Esophageal?”

    I spell it ‘Oesophageal’ which is the correct, English spelling, however they always seem to get the spelling wrong in the same way. It must have been duplicated a million times.

    Mispelled, antiquated and somewhat overpersonal forms of adreess are another one, eg ‘Dear HART, …,

  26. Do I read things correctly. Some of you think JONAS IS EFFECTIVE AS A WINGER. Why do think that? I would put him straight is s left back. As a winger he has minimal effect on the outcome of the game. He Can’t cross a ball in, the most important part of a wingers game. HE CANNOT do this effectively. Which games are you watching. Joey Barton on the right who is not a winger is more productive. GET REAL People.
