Benitez Can Bring The Very Best Out Of This Youngster

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 · 228 Comments

We have been very impressed with some of the Newcastle players who have come out since Sunday and said they want to stay on Tyneside for next season.

It seems a lot of that has to do with the possibility that the great Rafa Benitez will still be our manager at that time.

Another Dutchman Now Hints He Could Stay At Newcastle

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 · 32 Comments

The three players we expect to want to leave Newcastle this summer and not want to play in the Championship next season are Gini Wijnaldum, Moussa Sissoko and Daryl Janmaat.

We were worried that Andros Townsend may also want to leave, but Andros squashed that rumor yesterday and it looks like there’s no way he will leave Newcastle if Rafa Benitez remains the manager.

Alan Shearer Still Thinks Rafa Will Walk Away From Newcastle

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 · 69 Comments

Alan Shearer is still not convinced that Rafa Benitez will accept the Newcastle manager position and manage the club in the Championship next season.

Well at least Alan is consistent and he’s sticking to his opinion, even though the news coming through seems extremely positive that Rafa could be signed up before the end of week.

How Mike Ashley Can Help With The Revenues Next Season

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 · 132 Comments

Whenever St. James’ Park comes on the TV screens all you see are hundreds of Sports Direct advertising signs – they are all over the place – and even when we sign new players there just so happens to be Sports Direct signs behind them when the players are photographed.

Lee Charnley explained why Newcastle received nothing from Ashley’s company for the world-wide advertising during one of the Fan Forum meetings and his explanation was both stupid and hilarious.

Pundit – Benitez At Newcastle Wont Struggle To Attract Players

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 · 25 Comments

Former  Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy, now a BBC Match of the Day pundit,  thinks that if Rafa Benitez does join Newcastle long term this week, then the Magpies have to be strong favorites to come straight back into the Premier League.

It’s a combination of Rafa’s coaching skills plus the many contracts he has in England plus the fact he is very thorough preparing for every game and has already made Newcastle look like a top six side with their performances at St, Jame’s Park on Sunday against top side Spurs.
