Rafa – It’s Going To Be Like This Until The End Of The Season – Oh NO!!

The result and performance yesterday were not what Newcastle fans were expecting or hoping for.

It was a lackluster performance and sometimes totally inept play from our lads yesterday that will have Newcastle fans worrying about our survival this season.

And it’s getting to be the only thing that really matters in games is the result and points on the board – and we need wins to survive.

And it will not come as any positive news that manager Benitez thinks it’s going to be like this through the end of the season.

Oh my – so that will be Newcastle fighting relegation for four of the last five seasons – that’s just terrible!

Rafa Benitez – on the touchline yesterday

After the disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Brighton yesterday when some boos were heard around St. James’ Park at the end of the game, this is what Rafa had to say when asked if things were now worse than they were:

“No. It’s clear that we will have a similar situation until the end of the season, so the main thing is the message that I gave before: we have to stick together.”

“Stay clam and keep working hard, that’s it. “It’s not a secret.”

“That’s the only way for us.”  “It’s always difficult.”

“It depends what you do in the summer but it’s always difficult.”

Rafa is coming in for some criticism these days too, and that’s natural after such a terrible run.

But we must stay right behind the manager and the players if we are to have any chance of staying a Premier League club at the end of May.

Our fans are a huge advantage for the club and always have been.

Finally, I cannot say I’ve been at my most positive this last day or two.

But life goes on!

    That was the final straw yesterday, Rafa needs to go. We were outplayed at home by Brighton and the team we fielded yesterday were almost all Rafas signings. He complains about lack of funds yet wasted £30 million in the summer on Lejeune, Murphy, Manquillo and Joselu.

    Posoda did you watch a different game? Their 34 yr old striker was not effective in any way shape or form and they looked weak going forward.

    Joselu was a body through the door who Rafa never wanted so cant judge him on that.

    Murphy I really can’t understand that one but my guess is he was bought early on for his potential when Rafa expected more quality to be bought. When nothing came that looked like a waste of money.

    Murphy has done absolutley nothing since he signed.. Gayle didn’t even look like a pro footballer yesterday the ball literally bounced off him after every touch.

    We are in trouble. Ashley sell the club before it’s too late.

    On Murray the word I used was effective. Not great, not wonderful.
    He was an outlet for them. Showed for the ball often in quite wide areas. They had 55% possession and looked comfortable with the ball. We did not. So, I would stick with effective.

    Joselu was someone Rafa never wanted ?
    Yeh Murphy gets explained that way I’ve heard that one before.
    A poor signing is a poor signing.

    We showed more attacking intent in the last 10 minutes of the City game then in 90 minutes yesterday. We actually made Brighton look half decent
