Fans Take To Twitter On News Benitez Could Stay At Newcastle


News today in the Mail that Rafa Benitez is considering staying on at Newcastle even if we are relegated.

But he wants assurances from the club on certain issues such as money being available this summer and he wants the improvements to the Benton Training grounds to begin immediately.

He has apparently already given his input on changes he wants made to the plans.

He also wants a complete overhaul of the Newcastle squad this summer.

Here’s our extensive report on what Rafa wants from Newcastle and the chances he will stay on at the club.

We really hope this news is true – but you never know.

Meanwhile Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter – here are some typical tweets.

    I thought the article said he was ‘considering’ – big difference and a way to stop any protests at the final game as we all get behind Ash Toon.
    Cant see him staying – especially as we will have to have a fire sale so FatAsh doesn’t go without his dough – Championship is not that easy a league and we don’t exactly have a team of battlers!
    Still, I can still laugh a FatAsh loosing £180M – what he does is upto him – just a shame that he has been backed by 50000 fans for sooooooo long

    But weird that if I write a slang word for testicles it gets moderated, yet Ed prints one of the tweets with the f word in it.

    The very reason we need to secure the services of Rafa is because he will know the players we need to draft in to get us out of the Championship and (if we are lucky) to progress in the Premiership. Rafa would probably stay at the club but his money needs as well as his demands over control of the football club might make Ashley baulk at the prospect. I’m sure Charnley et al will not figure in Benitez plans to be an active participant so he will hopefully resign along with all the other management failures leaving Rafa to get on with the job of rebuilding our club from the foundations up. You can only hope !

    The investment in the training facilities may not be a problem – if Ashley will get SD to pay for it and adopt the Citeh/ Ethiad model of dedicating part of it to the community. Ok, it may mean having SD all over it but what the hell if it helps keep Rafa on board.

    Of course Ashley would need to get a capable and visionary project manager on the job – if he left it to Charnley it’d never get started!

    Don’t want to put a damper on things, but all this pro-Rafa spin has all the makings of Bishop being behind it.

    Maybe I’m a cynic but I don’t believe anything from Ashley until it’s happened.

    Crumbs of comfort, number 5 – Smalling vs Carroll. Whatever you think of our old donkey, Smalling is by comparison weak and pitiful, a vastly overrated player. I hope Carroll bounces him round the pitch like a ping pong ball.

    Last tine I read you were hailing McClaren as “Supermac” and being quite scathing about anyone who disagreed with your assessment.
    You insisted he was so good the club didn’t need to sign any players.
    And that you said he should allowed to serve out his contract even if we were relegated.
    And here you are, wearing your Cider-With-Rosie-tinted glasses, to paint pictures of happy away fans swilling ale in Suffolk pubs.
    Away fans you will not be joining.
    I’m sure you aren’t remotely bothered what damage your latest blog avatar suffers, as you’ll just change it when you’ve run out of road…again.
    Leave Lesh alone.
    There’s a good lad.

    If Raffa was to stay if we are relegated, it would be nowhere near as tough to take compared to if he wasn’t there and we went down.

    And if he did stay if we went down, if we were promoted and then went on to win something, his prestige would multiple ten-fold – it would already be sky high if someone won something anyway.

    Makes a change from the grief he took at Chelsea and the pressure at Real.

    Evening people – if this story is true it would be great BUT as lesh @9 points out it could well be Bishop spin leaked to the press to quell protests at the game on Sunday. I’ll not count my chickens until I hear Rafa confirm it.
