No Way Rafa Can Leave Now – Who Was Man Of The Match Against Chelsea?


It was a terrific way to end the season today when we took Chelsea apart 3-0 at St. James’ Park and Rafa seems to do well in his final games of the season.

We hammered Tottenham 5-1 two years ago, and Barnsley 3-0 last year and now we have beaten last season’s Premier League Champions 3-0 at home.

It was a sparkling performance from an in-form Newcastle side and it bodes well for next season as long as we can keep Mr. Rafa Benitez at the club.

Surely there is no way this man will be allowed to leave Newcastle now – he’s been fabulous these last two seasons for us  – and it’s been a mammoth job he’s performed since we were relegated two years ago.

Rafa Benitez – in the dugout today

Rafa had better not show up in the Newcastle City Center tonight – he’ll be completely mobbed.

He’s the best thing that’s happened to Newcastle in many years.

    Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has thanked Rafa Benítez, the players and the club’s supporters following the club’s tenth-place finish in the Premier League.

    The Magpies secured a place in the top half with a 3-0 victory over Chelsea at St. James’ Park on Sunday.

    The owner said: “I would like to thank Rafa Benitez for his magnificent achievement this season.

    “I would also like to applaud the players, led fantastically by the captain Jamaal Lascelles.

    “On many occasions throughout the season they have been described as a Championship side, which I personally consider to be derogatory.

    “Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him.

    “I hope very much that Rafa will remain at Newcastle United.

    “Finally, I would like to thank the fans for their unrivalled support of Rafa and the team throughout the season.”

    Player of the season is a tough one for me as it’s been a team effort.

    Rafa was right re the keeper. Our defense has been excellent. Best in years, all four of them. Our local lad, our speedster, the captain. What happened to our annual spanking? Gone.

    MF has been solid since the turn of the year. Shelvey Diame a great pairing.

    Ritchie is tops as, it seems, our twelve million signing will be.

    Perez gave us 13 points.

    The CF situation needs improvement although the effort is appreciated.

    Well done, team and Rafa.

    Yep, I thought this bit was particularly heartfelt…

    “Rafa, as always, has my full support, and contrary to some media reports that portray me as a pantomime villain, I will continue to ensure that every penny generated by the club is available to him.”

    dubravka deserves the man of the match and player of the season. The outstanding goal keeper hasn’t conceded up to 3 goals since his arrival
