Rafa Benitez is very keen to keep the supporters behind Newcastle and in fact everybody associated with Newcastle unified in their support of the club and the players.
There has been some criticism of the rotation system Rafa has introduced, but only after we lose or draw a game – which is interesting.
Rafa has a large squad on purpose – so we can first of all deal with all the injuries Newcastle always seems to pick up although this season it’s been the lowest for many years – let’s hope that continues.
Rafa Benitez – the Premier League is that way
Although Daryl Murphy goes out on international duty this week and is immediately is sent home injured and is now doubtful for our next game at home to Brentford a week on Saturday.
Rafa and our players have created a feel-good atmosphere surrounding the club and our players are slowly but surely getting a winning mentality with 9 wins in our 13 games in all competitions so far – a win percentage of 69%.
This is what Rafa has said today:Benitez said:
“We have to create an atmosphere where it’s a squad game.” “It’s not just the 11 players or 15 players on match days. We know that we will play a lot of games and in a short amount of time.”
“Players have to understand that even if they are playing well somebody else can come in and do well for the team.”
“We have to have the right atmosphere, the city, the players, the staff and the press all have to have the same idea.” “At the moment it is ideal. How long can we keep this momentum?”
“It depends on everyone, not just the players and staff, everybody has to share the moment.” “It is crucial for us to keep doing the same things.”
“We just have to concentrate on us, our games and our performances.”
“We have to do what we need to do. At the end of the season we can hopefully enjoy it together.”
Let’s all get behind what Rafa is trying to do and support him and the players 100%.
Who knows we could even be promoted next May!
Back to the big time with a world-class manager in charge?
Cannot be bad.
Howay The Lads!!
