Rafa Benitez has just given his press conference for the game against Brentford tomorrow afternoon at Griffin Park and hopefully we can get our first win of 2017 in that game.
Rafa Benitez – just completed his press conference
Here are some of the initial comments Rafa has made in his meeting with the press this afternoon and he coveral several topics:
“We are working hard, trying to find the right players for us.”
“We have brought back Sammy and Sterry but we are still working to find new players.”
“I said in August and now, Cheick has had a lot of clubs asking.” “Now we have two or three who are really interested.”
“I was talking with Mitrovic – he’s progressing, but he will take time – normally they say two or three weeks, we think he’ll be fine.”
“We know Brentford are a good team who play good football, especially at home.”
“The Reading defeat proves this competition is difficult. Relegated teams rarely go up but we’re doing well and must stay focused”
“The competition in the division is so difficult – anything can happen.” “We have to fight until the last month.”
“We have to stay calm, concentrate and work as hard as possible.”
Only about 60% of Newcastle fans think we win this game tomorrow at Griffin Park, which is not very high.
