Fans Praise Rafa’s Achievements – He’s Doing An Incredible Job

With two wins on the trot since the warm weather training in Murcia Spain and Newcastle seem to be off again and up the table.

Newcastle have won 8 games this season and four of those have been in the previous six games so things are most definitely looking up.

In the two home games against Huddersfield and Burnley, Rafa has shown a masterclass with his coaching and match plans.

And the result has been two fairly easy 2-0  wins at home and four wins on the trot at St. James’ Park.

With players like Schar, Hayden, Longstaff, and Almiron now starring for the team, it looks like a new team.

Notice that only Lascelles and Perez were first-team players from last night’s starting eleven when Rafa arrived in March three years ago.

And Lascelles had hardly played under Steve McClaren.

Rafa Benitez – it’s thumbs up from the manager

So even though Rafa has had little money to spend it looks like this Newcastle team can become a test for any club.

We are too many players short of having a good team and a strong squad with Ki, Shelvey, and Diame now fighting for their places.

If we can keep winning games this season then who knows –  we may have a second successive top ten finish.

If that happens it will show once again just what a world-class manager Rafa really is – and he’s been up against it at Newcastle with little investment from the owner.

There’s just no way Rafa should be allowed to leave the club in the summer.

No way at all.

Here are some comments about Rafa from appreciative Newcastle fans.

    Delighted with the wins against Huddersfield & Burnley…….

    Now hoping for a win against West Ham 3 – 0 would be good (recalling our defeat at St James’ Park)

    But……. I’d settle for any score as long as we score at least one more than the Hammers!

    🙂 🙂 🙂

    Was saying same to another mags supporter last night. I can rarely remember trusting an nufc defence. Maybe in the championship where colo was imperious. Think he woukd gave liked playing in this defence at his peak. But I never really recall a solid nufc defence. In all the years I am supporting them? And as for the passing, must be a pain in the bum for other teams when miggy is hovering and schar is on the ball ready to hit one long. Maybe we don’t need to spend too much? Could we get two pacey wingbacks for 20 mill. Surely we can? Maybe another loanee if barreca doesn’t work out and then fing a young rangy fast striker to understudy rondon.

    We’ll be due all the Sky money again in July. People are saying that we won’t need to spend much, but we should be aware that there will in theory actually be a fair amount to spend. If NY Mag is right, we’ve already put aside a fair amount to cover the potential HMRC fine and repayment, so anything that comes in should be reinvested (minus costs)

    Ashley should have enough cash to back Rafa the way he wants, which is not extravagant after all. Any investment in the club facilities is actually just that – an investment which he should see a return on either through club value increasing or by producing better quality players for higher resale value.

    I know logic doesn’t always win out with the fat man’s fingers on the purse strings.

    Thing that also annoys me is where is our transfer money from the last few big sales ? Seeing as we are selling players over 4 and 5 years there should be about 30 or 40 million worth of installments every season!?

    Also Fun 88 money and the other sponsors we have?

    Not sure why that money can’t be used to improve the facilities and scouting team

    Adding onto that about where the transfer profits went and ash reluctance to give Rafa some coin…..

    Why the hell did he give about £80 million to ‘Wally with The Brolly’ yet nowt for Rafa.

    I honestly believe he must have creamed over £150 million since we came back up, minimum.

    Commercial, Sky, Player sales, sponsorship….

    Unless he is saving up to give Rafa the lot ? Nah its went on high street purchases
