Beardsley In Awe – What He Does For City And Club Is Incredible


Development manager Peter Beardsley has revealed how good Rafa Benitez has been to all the coaching staff at Newcastle who are involved with him at Benton.

Peter has talked about how accessible the Newcastle manager is and how if we lose a game he never gets upset, but looks to the next game to what he can learn from why we lost – and put that right.

We’ve noticed with Rafa how whether we have won, lost of drawn a game he sums up immediately after the game what we did well – how the game went – and what we didn’t do well.

Peter Beardsley and Rafa Benitez

Rafa never makes excuses, but it’s always down to something we didn’t do and should have done – and the team and himself are always responsible for the result – whatever it is.

It’s hard to ever be a victim when you approach things in  that way.

Peter Beardsley seems to be in awe of the gaffer as he had this to say to the Chronicle today:

“I have worked with some of the best managers, but his manner and little things he does around the place – you just think: ‘WOW!’”

“They are so simple yet so clever.”  “It’s a pleasure for us to be around him.”

“Absolutely, without a doubt he brings back memories of Kevin and Sir Bobby.”

“The big thing for me is for all of them, Sir Bobby, Kevin and the gaffer – they absolutely love this game.”

“This is their life so for Rafa it’s 24 hours a day, whether he’s watching a game, watching the U-23s or the first team – it’s his life.”

“What he does for this city and this club is incredible.”

“I’m a massive fan too and obsessed, but I’m now calm because of what I see.” “And it’s because of him and because I love him so much because of what he does.”

“He couldn’t be better.”

“I talk to him about how calm he is.” “But why get upset or annoyed if we lose games?” “We can’t change the past but we can change the future.”

“If there’s anything we need we just have to knock on his door.” “We can ask him a question, text him, ring him or whatever.”

“The big thing for me is he treats everybody the same.” “With all due respect it doesn’t matter if you are a cleaner or kitchen porter, whoever you are, we’re all treated the same but in a positive way.”

“It’s fantastic.” “He is the person that I see being so calm through everything that is going on.”

Mike Ashley would have to be an utter and complete fool to ever think of Rafa leaving Newcastle while he is the owner.

We can assure you that Mike Ashley is not an utter and complete fool.

So relax.

🙂

    This is the big concern and big worry for all Newcastle Fans, when it comes to all football matters, we have more than ample proof to know Ashely is a complete and utter fool, also he is a total control freak, he wont give Rafa peace to get on with the job of making Newcastle great again. HWTL.

    You disagreed with Rafa!!

    Mitro’s chance was a good one but not an absolute sitter. If you recorded the game you’ll see.

    I think he’ll come good. I’d love to see him play with Gayle. Even Armstrong would partner well, maybe.

    And, Rafa, give Sammy more time. He’ll destroy a couple teams 🙂

    Is Mike Ashley in psychic control of Benitez, or does the above not make any sense.

    Most managers before don’t refer to him as a control freak. Rather, they say that he left them to it and he rarely talked to them.

    Even Keegan said that, saying it would ve been much better if he’d have direct access instead of middle men. I’m not sure, of course, but his leadership doesn’t seem to be that way. Neither does Rafa pull all the strings, as Ed claims.

    Still he’ probably doesn’t have her experience so we should cut him some slack.

    I noticed a few people talking about a striker coming in over the summer. It could prove difficult. I cannot think of many good forwards that are coming onto the market.

    Liverpool will be looking to shift Daniel Sturridge, but considering the wages he is on, they will have to let him go on the cheap, or be stuck with him.

    Chicharito only has 1 year left on his contract this summer…

    Dunno mate I bet there will be a few moving around and if we can pay the wages we should be able to attract a solid level striker if we keep Rafa

    I heard that Beardo had all the 23s lads and parents in a meeting. Can’t remember what the purpose of the meeting was, but Beardo happened to drop in, as an aside, a line that none of the lads were good enough to make it. Everyone was aghast and couldn’t believe what he had said. Naturally it was a bit of a bombshell.

    EGB,
    I’d say a bit of both, the losing mentality is being slowly got rid of, we previously had a group of players who did not give a flying foot about the shirt and that obviously filtered down to all levels, the place has been a cess pit. All hail the divine Rafa!

    Rafa is not only calm, he’s also very calculated and I wonder how he would’ve treated Ben Arfa, one of the greatest talents to have pulled on a Newcastle shirt. We don’t know and never will, but based on talent, he could’ve been a Newcastle great! If only he hadn’t been Pardew’d and that horrendous injury didn’t help!

    Shearer misses the point about players not being able to play 3 games a week. They’re being protected from potential injury rather than their stamina. There was a time when the fa cup was huge. Now the big clubs see it as a necessary evil and basically you know it’s dead when Derby are putting in 8 changes!

    Excellent!
    RAFA has provided me with the perfect response to the slightly wound up characters, on here after matches —
    “But why get upset or annoyed if we lose games?” “We can’t change the past but we can change the future.”
    This could come in handy!!

    Watching the Derby game and mcclaren constantly looks constipated lol and Graham Le seux is doing a great impression of an unfunny Alan Partridge!
    How do these people get commentary jobs!!

    Moonraker not one manager has got the best out of him and if it’s true about mitro not following orders and getting binned for it arfa wouldn’t get a sniff in training let alone a proper match

    As I see it, this current squad is 6 quality players short of being a midtable premiership side and in order to avoid a relegation battle next season, Ashley will need to spend £100 million in the summer.

    He should be able to recoup in excess of £30 million from the sales of the likes of Thauvin, Mitrovic, Dejong, Krul, Saviet, Gouffran, Riviere, Ameobi, Vukic, Haidara.

    Thought about keeping him but in all honesty, at his age and the fact he is out of contract soon, I expect him to leave.

    Expat, I think the side is 4 to 6 players away from finishing upper mid under Benitez at outlay of 70 to 80 million, while recouping 20 to 30 for a net spend of 50 mill, or twenty mill if you include the Sissoko money. We will need to look at European markets, and Carr will also need to be involved to get the required quality, but I think it is realistic.

    If Benitez had been in charge from the beginning of last season, with the money that was spent, and the talent we had, I’m sure we’d have finished upper mid, and with reshaping and a net spend of twenty million, would see him doing the same once back.
