Here´s an excellent informative tweet that lists Rafa Benitez´ first 10 games in charge at his six previous clubs and his minimum points total is 17.
With 17 points from our last 10 games we would be on 41 points and probably safe this season.
Of course those are good teams and not like Newcastle, who are currently second bottom of the Premier League.
Rafa also had a pre-season at each of those clubs before his first game, not just 3 days like at Newcastle – as he was brought in to take over from the woeful Steve McClaren, with just 10 games remaining.
So it will be a lot more difficult for him at Newcastle and we didn´t even mention some of the wimps we have in the squad.
The Leicester City game tomorrow night is starting to look huge – and we have to get off to a good start with a good result at the King Power Stadium.
