A few of our former players took to Twitter yesterday after our great 2-0 win at Elland Road.
With nine wins on the trot, Rafa Benitez now has the chance of becoming the first Newcastle manager ever in our long 124 year history to register 10 wins in a row.
Blackburn Rovers are the visitors next Saturday afternoon and fans will want to be there in case history is made – another sell-out at St. James’ Park?
Rafa Benitez – a record breaker next Saturday?

And of course Alan Shearer’s tweet praising Dwight Gayle, which we put out after the game.
Wonder when Rafa’s going to give Alan some kind of part-time role at Newcastle – probably in the summer?
