Fans have immediately taken to Twitter with Rafa’s phase one of his Newcastle revolution now complete and successful – we have been promoted straight back to the Premier League at the very first attempt – just like seven years ago.
Rafa deserves huge credit for building the team last summer that went on to deliver promotion and we don’t think Rafa’s getting the credit he deserves.
Our players also need to take a bow – they got the job done tonight and all season too.
Howay The Bonnie Lads!!
