Rafa was interviewed after the embarrassing defeat at Oxford United and he was asked about the transfer status.
Is it just me or is Rafa starting to seem disappointed the Newcastle hierarchy have failed to bring in some of the players he has wanted in this transfer window?
Newcastle play again on Wednesday night at home to QPR and that’s after the transfer window has closed and he was asked if that could be an advantage to Newcastle.
But we wonder why it would be, since Lee Charnley and his team are the ones who do all the negotiating for the transfers.
Rafa Benitez – 48 hours left to do a deal
Here’s what Rafa said when asked if there had been any progress on the transfer front:
“I don’t think it will change too much in terms of the transfer window.”
“We have to do our job before the deadline – one extra day shouldn’t make too much of a difference.”
“We have our targets, but we don’t know if we can get them.” “The timing does not change anything.”
We don’t know but Rafa doesn’t seem too hopeful these days with almost exactly 48 hours to go before the window slams shut.
We hope for Newcastle’s sake that we can get a couple of players through the door to improve the squad by Tuesday night.
What do you think?
