I’ve been banned from talking to my wife Madeline about Rafa Benitez.
Such is the price one has to pay in domestic life when we have a manager that’s as good as Rafa is.
It seems Madeline’s just sick of hearing me describe how good Rafa is.
Yes I know – it’s all very strange – I don’t understand it either.
Rafa Benitez – Newcastle manager
The Newcastle fans are simply in love with the man – especially after he orchestrated the win against Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night and we’ve never seen Rafa so agitated and unhappy on the touchline.
But he and his Newcastle players got the job done – that’s what matters – it was simply a massive win.
If we win at Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon I must remember to put some sticky tape across my mouth and then try to keep quiet.
It could be difficult.
Here are some tweets about him after the massive win on Tuesday night.
Difference y’day was our manager who gave a tactical team talk was Rafa Benitez. Genius of football, really looking forward to future #NUFC

I need to start having faith in the players and Rafa’s tactics, years expecting us to not come back in win doesn’t go away overnight. #NUFC

Just woke and realised last night wasn’t a dream. We are top of the league and Rafa is our manager #nufc
