Youngster Remains Extremely Popular With Newcastle Fans – Lee Charnley Please Note

When Robert Kenedy came to Newcastle on loan in January, we didn’t know what to expect from a player who had hardly played for the Chelsea first team.

But Rafa was keen on this lad last summer, and we soon realized why – when the 22-year-old Brazilian started to show some great skill, speed, and trickery on the left wing.

He was a revelation for Newcastle this year along with goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

With these two men in the Newcastle squad for next season from the start, we will be a much better team – whoever else Rafa is able to sign this summer.

Kenedy – congratulated by “father-figure” Rafa Benitez

It looks like we can sign Dubravka for £4M but it’s going to take as much as £20M to sign Kenedy, and a report in GOAL says Newcastle cannot afford that.

Lee Charnley should look at just how much fans love Kenedy.

He would be an excellent buy for the Magpies, and he has already delivered on Tyneside over 12 games – he also loves the club.

He’s worth £20M in today’s transfer market of any anybody’s money.

That includes Newcastle – let’s show some real ambition and drive in this summer’s transfer window – although Charnely to be fair is controlled by Mike Ashley – financially.

It would be good if Ashley was either fully involved at the club or else let Charnley and Rafa get on with it and give them transfer money and let Rafa spend it as he wishes.

We’d prefer the latter and Ashley can attend the games and enjoy some wins.

What’s wrong with that?



Jack Farish is currently studying for a Master’s degree in sport and exercise psychology at Northumbria University.

His thesis project looks at Premier League fans’ team identification – how well they support and identify with their team.

Jack has put together a relatively short questionnaire of team identification and satisfaction with life; it should take no longer than 10 minutes.

    So the suggestions are that we’ll get Tammy on loan and not pay to buy Kennedy. And next season which starlet will Chelsea graciously let us have ? It may have escaped some journalists notes that we beat Chelsea on the last day of the season, they’ve failed to reach the Champions League a minimum target set by Abramovich, their manager is likely to leave, they need to rebuild their lunch box of a ground and the fans ain’t happy. If I was Kennedy I’d be clamouring to get a deal at SJP.
    Go on Ashley I dare you before another Kane or Ali slips through your greasy fingers.

    Beware Wolves or Fulham, they’ll have £160million for getting promoted – must be about the same money as a top six club in the Premiership., what happened to our wad ?
