Benitez Has Massive Plans For Newcastle This Summer


Rafa Benitez has been a very successful manager in his career and he’s won three European titles with three different clubs and when he agreed to stay on last May at Newcastle the fans were more than ecstatic.

It must have been very difficult for a world-renowned manager to manage in the second division of England and take Newcastle to clubs like Rotherham and Burton – but Rafa took it in his stride.

He not only took it in his stride but there was never any feeling of superiority from the 57 year-old.

When he first arrived on Friday, March 11th last year


He was only ever interested in how to win the next game – that’s his job whether it’s in the Premier League, Serie A, La Liga or the Championship.

Rafa and Newcastle United will be a huge loss to the English Championship next season, but we are back where we belong.

Rafa and his players got the job done in a division that was a lot more difficult than it was seven years ago.

It’s been a very tough and long season for everybody associated with Newcastle.

You also have to remember he risked his career and good name by staying with the Magpies, but he has complete faith in himself, with the result the fans love him even more than last summer.

It shows Rafa’s total commitment to Newcastle United Football Club.

Rafa has detailed what his transfer plans are for this summer, as reported in the Mirror today.

He is asking for about £100M from owner Mike Ashley in transfer funds and he will present his plans and the players he wants to sign to Mike at their one-on-one meeting at the end of the season.

We pointed out in an article this week that Rafa has probably added up to £200M in value to Newcastle over the next year and it’s obvious he wants to make the Magpies  into a European powerhouse.

The only doubts are how Mike Ashley will react, because he’s never worked with such a top manager before, who knows exactly where he wants to take the club.

But all Mike has to do is to stand aside and support the manager, who is now like a God to the fans.

Mike should stand aside – much like he has done this season – then every year at the end of May work out how much additional value Rafa has brought financially to Newcastle United.

That value is in increased revenues, because we should be high up in the PL and in European competition too, if all goes  according to plan

And it’s also the increase in the value of the Newcastle United club on the open market, as Rafa Benitez takes Newcastle into a very high profile club in England and Europe.

That’s the plan in  ay case.

Mike will not screw this one up and now we were  been promoted last Monday night, this is what’s  in store for the very long-suffering Newcastle fans.

We love it!

Excuse me for being so upbeat and positive this morning, but that’s the way it is today.

🙂

Howay The Lads!!

Would Daniel Sturridge Be Good Value For Newcastle?

    See the worm Charnley has been involved in grubby affairs, wouldn’t be surprised to see Carr involved too.

    Just what we needed eh? FFS.

    Hopefully just individuals punished, but if any of our transfer history is implicated then I’d be preparing for a transfer embargo.

    If that happened, adios Rafa.

    Unbelievable. This could only happen to us. It is an absolute disgrace that the senior management within the club have allowed the finger of suspicion be pointed in our direction.

    You couldn’t make this shit up. Finally get a world class manager with promises to back him in the transfer market, get promoted and bang! Double whammy in the chops. We can kiss goodbye to to Rafa if we get points deducted or get demoted like Rangers did. F**King disaster.

    All plans will now be put on hold. Transfers stopped. God only knows what might happen now but you can be sure it won’t be good.

    Yeah I would be expecting a transfer ban at a minimum. Apparently offices in south France were raided too so it does get you thinking if this is related to Marseille, mondial and us?

    Got to think whoever is behind this sting has been purposefully waiting until we’re promoted and the fans are in a happy mood to act.

    Ronaldo

    That’s where my suspicion lies and why I said Carr will probably be involved also. Then there’s the West Ham factor and their dealings in France in recent history.

    Many a time on here folks have raised questions about the motives of our obsession with dodgy players from France.

    Que poco dura la alegria en la casa de un pobre-
    In other words our joy was too short lived as usual. Typical soap opera NUFC. Why us really. Especially now when quick rebuilding to give the team time to gel in nicely is essential to have a successful campaign. It beggars belief the sh*t we put up with from this club’s management.

    We all just have to hope no points penalty or anything like that will happen to us. A transfer ban will seriously hurt us but automatic demotion will kill us. Can’t believe we’re talking about this so soon after confirming our promotion. It looks like it’s even staged to fcuk us over for the moment we were promoted to send us back down.

    It makes me sick. I bet NUFC haven’t benefited from this. This will be all about individuals filling their own bank accounts because they’re horrible greedy barstewards, yet you know who’ll be punished. NUFC and us, the fans. Think it was bad going to Burton and Rotherham? Think what might be in line next season if this goes tits up. Weasels being greedy and we’ll suffer, guaranteed. Get them out of our club now.

    Suppose we may find out how hands on or not Ashley has been won’t we, if he really has cut loose for years now and left it up to the team below him then he’ll be royally pissed off.

    If he was in the thick of it, or directing it, then JfA might finally get his wish 😆

    The wheels of justice dont turn fast enough to affect this season imho, and if it is from this season, we cant afaik be deducted points in the Premier league as they are completely different organisations, Rangers were bankrupt and couldnt pay the fine which is why afaik they were deducted points when they reformed, im sure someone will either confirm or deny this but i think i am right, we havent done anything to break financial fair play rules afaik, time will tell though but i think its too late to affect our promotion party, wel probably find out more from the West Ham and french media than our own illustrious journos, and at least it will stop them just picking names from a hat for who we are linked with ………im just wondering why its only Penfold who has been arrested……dont they know hes clueless and wont understand tax law or even what the rules are to do with NI…….interesting that its French ahem Carr ahem, transfers…….it is going to be interesting indeed

    Oh well we’ll be starting in League 2 or the Canarama Conference next season.

    Seriously me worried that the FA will come down hard on the TOON to make us a example. Do a Rangers on us.

    Us fans don’t deserve all this shit – can we have a club that is run on the straight and narrow with no dodgy dealings – backhanders – always in the news for the wrong reasons.

    ARGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

    here’s the news release…..West Ham and the deals to get the Olympic Stadium must be under scrutiny – after all that is tax payers money

    from the BBCNewcastle United and West Ham’s grounds have been raided in a fraud investigation.
    HMRC said it deployed 180 officers across the UK and France, resulting in the arrests of several men working within professional football.
    It said investigators had searched a number of premises in the north east and south east of England.
    A spokesman added it had also seized business records, financial records, computers and mobile phones.
    The arrests were connected to a suspected income tax and National Insurance fraud, he added.
    BBC Sports editor Dan Roan has tweeted that West Ham United was one of the clubs involved.
    Newcastle United’s St. James’ Park ground has also been searched.

    Bobby

    Aye, will be for the individual’s benefit and so we need to make a right racket and get organised to appeal any club penalty. Righteous indignation at the ready.

    Justice isn’t punishing the many for the actions of a few, maybe if the supporters had some say at the executive level and some representative was involved, but we’re just as much victims in this as HMRC if they decide on demotion, pts deduction etc. A transfer embargo for a season I could perhaps understand.
