The Mail is reporting that Rafa Benitez is on his way to Newcastle and hopefully will meet with Lee Charnley and maybe even Mike Ashley later today or tomorrow.
With Newcastle known to travel at a snail’s pace – and that’s only on good days – the unveiling is likely to happen tomorrow.
But is is very important that Rafa gets down to work quickly and it looks like he will be in charge of the team for Monday night’s game at league leaders Leicester City – and we’ll maybe even have a chance of taking something from that game.
Rafa Benitez – This is what it could look like tomorrow

Tomorrow is when the players report back for training, so hopefully Rafa and the new coaching staff will be ready and waiting for them.
With tomorrow being a Saturday we may well see some fans at Darsley Park to potentially welcome Rafa Benitez as he attempts to save us from relegation – although he’s not exactly used to managing teams at the bottom of league table – only this at the top.
Rafa is the best manager we have had since Sir Bobby Robson was sacked in late August, 2004 – one day before I retired – if only I had known.
The Tyne Wear derby is a week on Sunday, but then Rafa will have two weeks to work with the team before the relegation 6 pointer at Norwich City on Saturday 2nd September.
Assuming Rafa signs and Newcastle don’t manage to screw it up – then it will be very important to put aside the antics of this week and get right behind the manager and the players.
Newcastle fans can helps the team produce a mini miracle and save our season.
It will be worth it if we can survive and have Rafa in charge of the transfers in the summer.
We expect Rafa to be welcomed with open arms by fans as our potential savior – and we must survive this season in the Premier League now that this has happened.
The press may even like us with Rafa in charge.
Well I’m getting carried away again.
Howay The Lads!!
