It’s always good to check on what Newcastle are saying and thinking at any one time.
After the great win yesterday our fans are obviously upbeat but still a bit wary of owner Mike Ashley and whether he’s going to screw everything up.
Fans are also upset with the sacking of Chris Hughton by Brighton after all he ‘s done for them since he took over the reins at the end of 2014 with Brighton desperately fighting against relegation from the Championship.
The Brighton hierarchy doesn’t come out of this looking very good – but greed for money has taken over the Premier League clubs – unfortunately.
Make sure you let Chris know we still love him and that he’s a great manager.
There’s just no justice for Chris – who is a class person – always has been – always will be.
Chris Hughton – while performing wonders for Brighton & Hove Albion
But some big Championship clubs will be after him this summer – he can them promoted.
Personal note to Chris – make sure you get that 1M bonus clause in your contract for when you get your next club promoted from the Championship.
Here are some of the comments from our fans – who are upbeat today.
When the football season ends all attention turns towards the next season. The anticipation of the new fixtures.
I just want to read the headline RAFA signs a new contract. #nufc

#nufc why do i have a feeling that ashley is going to back rafa this summer. Did just bang my head mind.

Not in Ashley’s interests for talks to break down before the season ended. String it out, then refuse to meet Rafa’s demands and let his contract run down. Hope not, but explains why it hasn’t been sorted yet? #nufc

I love how so many of our players are coming out and expressing their appreciation for the fans. HWTL? #NUFC

Guess in the next couple of week we’ll establish what #NUFC we’ll be following for the foreseeable – a club that aspires for more and pushes boundaries, or a profit making advertising unit for undesirable shops.

I Hope Brighton “do a Sunderland “ now.
Hughton got them & kept them in the premier league and had decent cup runs.
Owners obviously have bigger ideas
Good luck Chris #NUFC

BBC Reporter to Rafa Benitez:
“They were singing, they want you to stay, are you going to stay here?”

Shocked and actually quite saddened to hear Chris Houghton has been sacked. Any club should feel lucky to have him. He’ll always have a place in our hearts that’s for sure. I’ll never forgive Ashley for the way he just got rid of him from us either. #NUFC

Genuinely don’t think I’ve ever wanted a team relegated more than I want to see Brighton relegated next season, absolutely ridiculous decision after what Chris achieved there, if Rafa did walk I’d happily have him back at #NUFC
