Fans Take To Twitter After First Point In 5 Games – Rafa Admits To Making Mistakes

Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter and it’s good we managed a point last night but we also have some very tough games coming up starting at Chelsea on Saturday.

Last night’s trip to West Brom is one of our easier games.

But we are also hoping we can improve and the subs last night – Aarons, Mitrovic, and Shelvey all looked like they made a difference to the side.

It will be interesting to see who Rafa starts on Saturday at Chelsea.

And Rafa has admitted he makes mistakes as well as the players – and it’s not the first time he has said that.

Rafa Benitez – makes mistakes too

Here are some tweets on a range of topics from Newcastle fans.

Howay The Lads!!

    There is a lot of talk about Rafa making the wrong decisions. I think its important to remember being a great manager is not about who you pick on match day. Pardew and the rest always picked the team you expected and the one that looked right on paper. Rafa see’s these players day in and day out and he is a tactical genius. Loch hit the nail on the head why he is playing Joselu. He is holding teams for 70 mins (or trying) and then going for the attack in the last 20mins. Jail is right as well, could you imagine getting a Megson or a Pulis in to replace Rafa! it would be a nightmare. Lets all take a step back and look at what we have by some stroke of luck, trust in Rafa and get behind the team. Our support and love for Rafa is the only reason he is still here. lets not mess this all up because people want Mitro to start. Yes, I do as well but lets not forget he was hardly banging them in when he used to start regular. Trust in Rafa and show support for our club THAT’S THE ONE AND ONLY WAY WE CAN HELP

    Anyone care to venture how not starting mitrovic led to us conceding, and then bringing him on stopped us conceding any more goals? Was he defending from the front ?

    Tsunki…….. The problem with Rafa is that he uses his instinct and intuition as oppose to following the stats and forming proper judgements.

    I think my favourite was “Rafas had three windows to sort the team out”
    The first one was spent getting rid of a bunch of mercenaries who didn’t want to be here in the PL never mind in the Championship then persuading a group of players to drop into the Championship. There wasn’t even a second window ffs. Last summer Charnley spent ten weeks on getting Lejuene who had a buy out clause.

    It’s baffling, our resident Dane now won’t share with us if he watched the game or not. We just have to assume his insightful footballing comments might come from A: The lunatic unhinged comments on here. B: The stats on some stat type website or C: That he actually took 90 minutes of his precious time and watched the game.

    Actually Betty i hate to disagree but I think it’s the other way round

    He analyses strengths and weaknesses across the pitch and selects to match them. How can you say his team selection led to two goals conceded? If we hadn’t then we would have won 1-0 without our “saviours”. I like others believe its in his plan to contain away from home and use impact on a tiring team to push for a win. He knows we haven’t got loads of goals, mitrovic is seemingly our best and least used asset but he’s been with us years, had countless chances and he is mediocre at best in the pl and that gives him credit.

    The game came to life for us when we conceded the second goal, I said last night that at that point we had bugger all to loose but to go for it, we did and we scrambled a draw at the end against the worst team in the league imo, yes we did come back well, but we are in for an alimghty tussle if our club does not put it’s hand in its pocket, negative comments i agree, and as much as i like and respect our manager he like to make excuses for himself a wee bit to much.

    YEE HAAA ! A point for the Toon, I had almost given hope after they went 2 up against us then someone seemed to give Matt a boost or a kick up the arse or something like that and away he went just like he used to. Then Rolando and Mitro came on then the game totally changed. It was good to see them really try and that makes the difference in my book. We need Jamaal back to keep them on their toes for 95 mins every game.
    Joselu at the moment would be a super sub like in the last 15 mins of a game until he settles down and finds the back of the net on a regular basis as not everyone can settle down in the first season ( Warren Barton springs to mind ) Mitro looked hungry last night showed a different side to himself I thought must have been the crowd chanting his name that done it. Never mind these are only my opinions and like the great Rafael Benitez no body is perfect we all learn from time to time.

    Geordie-John Horselu has scored a whopping 35 goals in 8 seasons over his career! So he will never “settle down and start finding the back of the net”! You and Rafa both need to wake up!!!
