Rafa Is Unhappy – Sort This Out – Newcastle Must Bring Players In Quickly

Martin Hardy of The Independent reported earlier today that Rafa Benitez’s future is in serious doubt at Newcastle and it could be that Martin has an insight, since he spent a lot of time with Rafa this year writing his book
‘Rafa’s Way’ which is a decent read.

We keep hearing these stories about Rafa being frustrated and while we don’t think Rafa is anywhere close to leaving Newcastle we should be warned nevertheless that the longer we go on without getting some decent players through the door the more Rafa will become frustrated and he has every right to be.

It would be a complete and utter tragedy if Rafa leaves Newcastle after all the tremendous work he done over a very short 17 months.

We are a little worried that these reports keep surfacing and Martin is not one to sensationalize things, so we should understand Rafa is frustrated at the lack of signings.

We were looking at the 2014 transfer window today and when Emmanuel Riviere came through the door about this time three years ago he was our 5th signing of the summer.

So far we have only one new player – Florian Lejeune – to add to our squad from last season.

After Hardy’s report came out, both Craig Hope of the Mail and Luke Edwards of the Telegraph have tried to reassure fans that Rafa is far from wanting to walk away from Newcastle.

We agree with Luke – there should be a meeting of the principal players involved in the transfers and get the stuff talked through as to why we cannot seem to sign any players this summer and fix it.

It will be the biggest blunder ever if Newcastle screw this up and we lose Rafa Benitez.

It would be unforgivable.
