Rafa Benitez may have only three games left as the Newcastle manager after spending just over three years on Tyneside.
Fans are starting to get just a little anxious that with Newcastle now safe in the Premier League there seems to have been very little if any progress made over the last week.
We beat the Saints last Saturday 3-1 at home, and the next day we were safe in the Premier League when Cardiff lost 2-0 at home against Liverpool.
We were hoping that would be the trigger for the club to start talking seriously about what Rafa wants and get the answers back to him on his requirements to stay at the club.
Rafa Benitez in training – is he staying or going?
He was asked to submit his requirements before the game at Arsenal on April 1st.
Come to think of it that was April Fool’s Day.
That’s about four weeks ago and nothing back to Rafa yet – as far as we know.
He will be asked again this afternoon by local journalists whether there has been any progress made.
We are hoping there may be some positive news today.
The club cannot go on much longer, and surely Mike Ashley wants to sign Rafa before the end of the season on May 12th, when we play at Fulham?
That’s two weeks on Sunday so let’s hope the Newcastle hierarchy will get off the fence and sign Rafa up to at least a three-year deal – more is (much) better in this case.
