Here’s a small but significant piece of video put out on the Newcastle United Twitter account as Rafa starts the training session with his players this morning.
Rafa returned to Newcastle last Monday having fully recovered from his hernia surgery after the manager, and his excellent coaching staff had engineered the great 1-0 win at Swansea on Sunday.
That was the first time at Newcastle that he had missed a press conference before the game and then couldn’t make the game in person – but we still won and away from home too.
We now have two wins in a row and if we can beat Stoke City at home on Saturday afternoon that will be the first time since November of 2013 that we have managed to win 3 Premier League games on the trot.

Howay The Lads!!.
Just wish we could hear what Rafa is telling his players.
