It was really fabulous that Newcastle finished the season with a good win and an excellent performance yesterday.
It was our best win of the season – 4-0 at Fulham – and even though they are a relegated side – they had won three of their previous four games.
We controlled the game throughout and the fans could see that in spite of Mike Ashley, Rafa is making progress with the side.
But it could be a lot faster if he was given some decent transfer funds and more moral support from the owner.
It was another fight against relegation this season, and that has to be the last time we are fighting relegation with Rafa Benitez as the manager.
He deserves so much better.
The man himself – Rafa Benitez
We finished in 13th place but on 45 points, one more point than last season.
We are very close to how we ended up last season, and we got one point more and finished three places lower than we did last May.

And for the goals we scored are indebted to Ayoze Perez and on-loan striker Salomon Rondon, and new defender Fabian Schar chipped in with four great goals.
Perez, Rondon, and Schar have been outstanding plat=yres Newcastle this season.
We are hoping Mike Ashley will come out of his shell this week and have positive negotiations with Rafa and his people.
We don’t want this to become any more of a circus and an embarrassment than it already is.
We expect Rafa to be signed up before the weekend.
Mike Ashley has to start doing his job at Newcastle and maybe turn up now and again in the City.
