Newcastle have five games left, and we’re sure Rafa would just love to win every one of the remaining five games of the season and end up with 56 points.
Newcastle have won their last four games, and they are on a high and playing well; we should be able to get a few more wins over the last fives games.
If we can get to 50 points (3 wins), it will be the second-best performance for a Newcastle team since Mike Ashley bought the club a long eleven years ago – and quite an achievement for Rafa and his players.
So, Rafa, the perfectionist will not be putting his feet up until after the last game of the season.
And we know he will not even be putting his feet up then – well maybe for a couple of days.
Rafa was asked if the fighting spirit in the squad is still intact and this is what he said – as reported in the Chronicle today:
“I think it is.”
“Our training has been quite intense and the players have complained about decisions going against them even in practice games.”
“It means they are still competing and trying to win.” “I thought that was quite positive.”
“It’s always tough in the Premier League and it (game at Everton tomorrow night) will be difficult.”
“They’re still a good team.” “Even though people will tell you they aren’t doing so well they still have some good players and in front of their fans, they will give everything.”
“It’s important in football to stay calm and then you don’t have complacency.”
“We go there with a lot of respect and we’re sure it will be a tough game.”
It will be a tough game tomorrow, but three in five fans think we can make it 5 wins in a row before we are at home to West Brom next Saturday.
