Here’s Why The Mood At Newcastle Will Improve Significantly Tomorrow

The mood at Newcastle should improve a lot tomorrow when the players start returning from their long eight week summer break – and we fully expect Rafa Benitez to be upbeat and positive and  hope the mercurial manager gives an interview quickly.

Last summer he deftly explained what the situation  was in the transfer market and how many players we had lined up and generally was positive that good players still wanted to join the club – even though we had just been relegated.

We hope he is just as upbeat this summer, although we all know he is not happy at the lack of progress on transfers so far this summer.

Think Champions League in three years time!


But hey, we have the time to correct the situation and still have a very good transfer window – just like last year with lots of players also leaving the club this summer.

When September rolls around the squad will be a lot different from what it was a year ago, but Rafa is simply doing the job required of him and his vast experience is a huge boon to Newcastle as he continues to completely transform the club.

That should alleviate some of the real fears of Newcastle fans, that Rafa could simply walk away this summer.

But it’s not good that this news keeps coming up that he is unhappy and could walk out and that happened last January too.

The club really need to fully support the manager in the next couple of years  – support him 100% in every way possible.

Otherwise, we could lose potentially the best manager we have ever had at Newcastle over our 125 year history in terms of raw ability and past successes – like winning three European trophies with three different clubs.

We are hoping that will soon be four in the not too distant future.

Rafa Benitez is a modern day manager and one of the best in the business and he wants to win trophies at Newcastle.

It would be a crime if Mike Ashley and company messed this one up.

We don’t think they will.

Howay The Lads!!

    Got a question, why are we still a big club when the owner won’t pay more then 10m for a player and is always looking for basement bargains?
    The mentality of the recruitment needs to change. We got lucky in the season we got ba, cabaye and co. Since then 7/10 similar buys have been poor.

    When was a ten million ceiling placed by MA or anyone? Didn’t read that anywhere. Wasn’t mitro like 13 million? Has something changed?

    My guess is the record (15?) will be broken this year.

    From previous
    True wages have gone up but then so has the money in the PL so hard to complain too much, I reckon 70k ish for 2 England internationals is probably pretty decent though? If we could get them to agree to it obviously

    Its long been our wage structure that has held us back though so who knows what’ll happen…if 70k is too much though I reckon we are gonna be in trouble

    The Chronic said there was a £15million ceiling. How true that is, who knows?

    Apart from the first wk of transfer rumours, most of our so called targets have been relatively cheap . under 10M, so i guess some people assume that the 10M is the ceiling we are prepared to pay, though ive heard that 15M was the limit Nufc are prepared to pay, i read that on a blog on Newsnow only a few days ago,
    We keep getting labelled a big club but to be honest ,we hav,nt shown the ambition of a big club for years. More like a Sports Direct outlet.

    Thauvin £12m
    Shelvey £12m

    With Amazon and the likes starting to really hurt retail and discount stores, one has to wonder if MA has an eye on getting his NUFC investments repaid before he starts to re-fill the roster.
