We have noticed there has been very little news today and even yesterday on the supposed meeting going on with Rafa Benitez, Mike Ashley. and Lee Charnley at a secret location in London.
According to well-respected north-east journalist George Caulkin of the Times, there was a meeting on Thursday afternoon between Rafa and Lee Charnley, and that’s basically it.
The two are still apparently talking but remotely, with Rafa likely back at his home in the Wirral on his short holiday?
Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley – what’s there to laugh about?
But Caulkin has verified there have been no breakthroughs in the talks so far, which unfortunately is consistent with other reports of the last two days.
Mike Ashley has to give in on some of Rafa’s requests to make the team great again otherwise he could trigger the disaster scenario with Rafa leaving Newcastle.
If that happens the biggest of all the losers will be the Newcastle owner.
And by taking, I really mean talking. Sorry. It’s good to talk.

It’s good they are still talking, but how long are these talks going to go on – and on – and on – for?
Just a thought.
