Jonas Gutierrez News – Back In Action
The Newcastle United under 21s are playing at St.James’ Park today v Chelsea with a 1pm kick-off, with the latest Jonas Gutierrez news being that he is expected to feature as an over age player.
The winger has been back in Argentina for several weeks due to ‘personal reasons’ and now sees his way back into the team blocked by the very hard working Yoan Gouffran, who has started to add more goals to his workrate.
Other senior players who could get one of the three possible over age places against Chelsea are Steven Taylor, Rob Elliot and/or Gabriel Obertan.
While players with first team experience but who still qualify for the development squad, such as Gael Bigirimana, Massadio Haidare, Paul Dummett and Adam Campbell are likely to play.
Willie Donachie, Newcastle’s reserve team coach said;
“The manager wants to play a couple of experienced players and if we get them with our younger players then it is a good scenario as the young ones can learn from that experience.”
***Predictions of Jonas and Steven Taylor being involved today have now been quashed with Sylvain Marveaux and Gabriel Obertam the only two senior players named in the following squad;
Alnwick, Aarons, Sammy Ameobi, Bigirimana, Obertan, Satka, Morgan, Mitchell, Miele, Heardman, Haidara, Good, Gillesphey, Dummett, Campbell, Marveaux
If you fancy going along to the game, admission is £3 and £1 for concessions, with all members/season ticket holders getting in free.
