To the delight of everyone in Tyneside and Newcastle, their much-loved winger Jonas Gutierrez is expected to make a full recovery from his testicular cancer clearance and return to the pitch at St James' Park.
Last Friday doctors gave the Argentine hero the opportunity to return to training with Alan Pardew's side where he was greeted heavily by the squad.
Upon the 31-year-old's return, Alan Pardew strongly believes that his Newcastle side will be well and truly back on their rails concerning their league form where they have now won their previous three games which include ties against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Argentine winger has undergone several courses of chemotherapy which have evidently been successful.
Teams from all across the country have supported Gutierrez through his traumatic experience. On September 20, the visit of Hull saw their fans draw out a huge sign reading "stay strong Jonas" which was applauded by the whole stadium.

Also, Swansea showed their support for the 31-year-old upon the Magpies' visit last month in a 2-2 draw where a picture of the winger followed by the words "get well soon Jonas" were displayed on the big screen during the game, once again lifting everyone off their seats to a loud applause.
Gutierrez has recently spoken to the press to confirm his delight over the successful chemotherapy course.
