Twitter exploded after Newcastle came storming back after being 2-0 down at half time at Anfield and we held out for those final anxious 10 minutes to get a very valuable point against another in-form side – this time Liverpool FC – Rafa’s former club.
Two overall points against Manchester City on Tuesday night and now at Liverpool could prove very valuable – but now we have to win games against Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Tottenham.
Howay The Lads!!
Rafa Benitez – at end of game today
Six points from six games doesn’t do the job Rafa has done justice, the change in mentality has been ginormous. We’re still alive. #NUFC

It’s incredible what Benitez has done in 6 weeks. That team did not come from behind. No backbone. We MUST keep him!! ?????????? #NUFC

Under McClaren: went behind 22 times, equalised 4 times (18.2%). Benitez: behind 8 times, equalised 5 times (62.5%). More fight ? #NUFC
