It’s very clear to see that a lot of Newcastle fans have very fond memories of Gutierrez, who only managed to score 12 times for the Magpies, but given that he took on the club and Mike Ashley in court for the way he was treated and still speaks fondly of the fans and club, it is no surprise how he has endeared himself to the Geordie fanbase.
