It was great to see Siem de Jong and Rolando Aarons starting again for Newcastle last night at Tynecastle in the good 2-1 win.
Siem put a great ball through to Dwight Gayle for our first goal after inly three minutes and Rolando looked good and hit the bar twice.
In short, both these players have the class we need to compete in the Premier League next season, although they are probably our two most injury prone players.
Newcastle players huddle before the game last night
But the medical department will be watching the two of them closely and these two players could be like new signings for us if we can only keep them fit.
All of our players in that first half played well and we looked a decent team and Rafa obviously has each player knowing just exactly what they have to do.
Here are some comments from the Newcastle fans about the game last night with one or two other comments put in.
It’s always nice to win.
If we keep De Jong and Arrons fit they will be like 2 new signings.#Nufc

Even if it’s only Hearts, it’s good to get a win under our belts for the first game. Still needing some signings asap! #nufc

Rafa Benitez has made it clear that he wants a deal done over the weekend and managing director Charnley is working on the transfer. #NUFC
