Rafa Benitez and Newcastle United have equaled Steve McClaren’s dubious record of getting only 2 points out of our first 8 Premier League games.
And in the 9th game McClaren’s Newcastle won 6-2 at home against Norwich to lift the mood but as we know McClaren was hopeless and we were still relegated.
We are hoping we can beat Brighton at home on Saturday to get our first win of the season and hopefully take us out of the bottom three.
Rafa Benitez is a lot different and a lot better than Steve McClaren, so we do expect Rafa to have Newcastle safe and still in the Premier League come next summer.
Rafa Benitez – remains confident – doesn’ give any thought to disaster scenarios
The Mirror today are reporting that while most fans think we will start to win soon, what happens if we don’t win in the next three or four games?
But any talk of Rafa being fired is nonsense, and he remains our best chance of surviving again this season – as we did last season under his expert guidance.
Rafa has been the calming influence on Tyneside since he arrived and to even talk about not winning any of the next four games is like putting gasoline on the fire at Newcastle.
We have to remain positive and not over-think about a possible disaster scenario.
We know Rafa doesn’t that way.
We may not win on Saturday against Brighton but surely wins are on the way soon.
Let’s not talk too negatively until the next four games are over against weaker opposition and the subsequent International break comes along.
Maybe we’ll have four wins on the trot by then?
Creating potential disastrous news is not a helpful business to be in.
And it’s not even needed at Mike Ashley’s Newcastle – as we seem to lunge from one crisis to another.
