Rafa Benitez has just given his press conference for the important game at Aston Villa tomorrow, when we will try to get our 8th win in 9 games in all competitions.
Rafa has been a little more explicit today that Newcastle must start doing their jobs and get to the top of the Championship table – although he admits it will be hard to stay at the top throughout the season.

Here are some of the manager’s initial comments coming through and of course he respects Aston Villa who like Newcastle is a huge club now in England’s second division after least season’s disasters.
“I’ve said before that need consistency, and I still have the same feeling. One game doesn’t change anything.”
“Yoan was training hard, and when you have that it’s just a question of time before they start playing well and scoring goals.”
“Aston Villa is a big club with a great manager and great players.”
“In one month, everything can change.” “We have to keep doing our job and make sure we are at the top of the table.”
“It will be tough to try and stay at the top of the table all season, but we will try and do it.”
“It’s a big game for us against Aston Villa. It shows how important this competition is.”
Rafa will also be giving further behind the scenes interviews now for the game tomorrow and those comments should be coming through soon too.
Love the way he really respects every team we play – real class!
