Rafa Benitez is certainly showing he’s a world class manager – although we already knew that – but as the season goes on the Newcatsle team seems to be getting better and they have a winning mentality now, which we’ve never had for a long time.
Newcastle won 2-0 today and at the end it was a fairly easy win although The Whites put Newcastle under some pressure late in the first half.
It was two goals from – you guessed it – Dwight Gayle after 23 minutes and 54 minutes that wrapped up the points for us today – what a buy this lad has been for just £10M from Crystal Palace.

Thanks to former manager Alan Pardew who never seemed to rate him.
That’s 9 wins in a row for Rafa and Newcastle in all competitions and that equals the record set by the great Kevin Keegan.
Next Saturday at home to Blackburn Rovers there’s a chance to stretch that winning run in all competitors to 10 games – for the first time ever at Newcastle.
Rafa is already making history- and what a fantastic manager he is!
HOWAY THE LADS
