Can Newcastle Finish On A Winning Note For 5th Season In A Row?


Newcastle have the chance to finish the league season off with a win for the fifth time in a row on Sunday at Craven Cottage.

Even though Fulham have been relegated for some weeks now, they have won three of their last four games under caretaker manager Scott Parker and it will not be easy,

This could be the last game in charge for Rafa Benitez at the club, and if it is – it will be the 146th game he has managed at Newcastle.

We have won 61 games, drawn 31 games, and lost 53 of the first 145 games Rafa has been our manager.

Rafa Benitez – will be his 146th game in charge

We need some good news soon – we need some news soon from the hierarchy.

Maybe Rafa will have that good news tomorrow afternoon during his meeting with journalists?

Hope so.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Fulham?

    Note to Ashley:

    Sam Wallace@SamWallaceTel

    As well as the tactical shrewdness, Klopp & Pochettino’s emotional connection with their players has been critical over these epic semi-finals. If it hadn’t already there will be a lot of club owners/CEOs pondering that factor now.

    Cheers, hibbit.

    Interesting that the unholy trinity have been missing – I wonder why they’re staying away?

    Must be kinda awkward for Charnley sitting there knowing how unpopular he is and with no support from his peers.

    I’d love to know how Rafa needs Mike Ashley, the Man U job will be up for grabs in November.m Lpool have their new hero now, I don’t think there would be too many mutterings on the red half of Merseyside if he took that job come the time.

    Scott Parker surely can’t be a match for Rafa’s tactical genius and experience in the game. After all, his tactics as a player were to receive the ball, turn towards our goal and pass it back to a defender.

    Not quite Rinus Michels, you would think.

    I suppose if you look at Ashley’s other businesses then he probably doesn’t negotiate his manager’s contracts personally!
    However, saying that, I think a football club is different and I would hazard a guess that Rafa is probably the most highly paid of all his managers so Ashley should get involved. I suspect he won’t but I’m hopeful a deal will be brokered via Charnley but if I was Rafa I’d make sure it’s easier to walk away this time if Ashley reneges on his promises.

    Rafa at Man U? Never in this World….

    The Scousers would see it as betrayal, the United fans would be distinctly uncomfortable and as soon as he was seen as over-defensive (a criticism we’ve heard from folk on here) he’d be forced out.

    Just because we know he’s a great manager doesn’t mean he could manage anywhere.

    Jail you indicated that I was extreme saying Perez could end up in the Chinese league.

    Well, both Demba Ba and Martins ended up at Shanghai Greenland Shenhua in the Chinese league. Hence the reference. Not extreme at all just pointing to other NUFC players that wanted to leave for bigger things ended up there.

    Beermonkey probably a little, true.

    However, he was genuinely one of the most frustrating players of his generation at NUFC and, while his managerial career has started well and he deserves credit for that, it’s still in its infancy.

    I’d hope Rafa can find tactics to overcome them this weekend.

    Nostradamus the Geordie,
    They were both at the end of their careers when they went to China, banishing the 25 year old Perez to the Far East just because he might not fancy staying here and fighting Mikeys relegation battles is imo very extreme.

    RobLeenio,
    As i say why not, I think the Lpool fans are far too enamoured with their new baseball cap and kerchief wearing uber thug Klopp to worry about Rafa. Imo Man U will have no option to sack the hapless OGS in around November, who better to steer them to CL qualification and a cup, the only Scousers kicking off about that would be the Evrrton fans sitting in tenth after spending another 80M.
