Interview – Rafa Waiting To Know How Ambitious Ashley Is – Sadly – He Will Be Very Disappointed


Nobby Solano of Peru was a great player for us, and he had a couple of spells with Newcastle.

The first spell was from 1998-2004 when he played for Sir Bobby Robson, and he was brought back in 2005 by Graeme Souness for his second spell.

Over those two spells, he played 290 games for us with 46 goals and 11 assists and played for Peru a whopping 95 times scoring 20 international goals.

He was a very talented player for us and extremely popular with our fans.

Nobby has been interviewed in the Chronicle today, and he has his say on what he believes Rafa wants to hear from owner Mike Ashley.

This what Nobby has told the Chronicle today:

“I believe Rafa will want to know how ambitious they are and how much investment Mike Ashley is prepared to make.”

“The transfer window is open. The talks really should have taken place before now and this should have been done.”

“They have missed out on some targets. They need to push forward quickly.”

“The summertime is a busy period and if you are too slow you know what happens.”

“You also need to think of the fan base and keep them happy.” “The most important thing in Newcastle is football. Mike needs to recognize that.”

“They just want to have a good team.” “Things have been made hard for Rafa. Without it, nothing can move on.”

“Rafa is waiting for the answers.”

Nobby hits the nail on the head with those comments.

Newcastle (make that Mike Ashley) are again moving far too slowly and showing no real urgency simply because the owner doesn’t have Rafa’s massive ambitions for the club, and quite honestly never will.

That’s the sad part about all of this.

🙁

And Rafa will know in his heart of hearts he has an owner who doesn’t care too much about making Newcastle a great club.

Ashley thinks it will cost too much.

Whether Rafa will still sign for us – knowing that – is unclear.

What do you think?

    Sorry Welshie
    I tried looking for a shorter word for you
    But the huge word Grommet was all I could find.

    seeing as your current one has jumped ship?

    Sorry all for the repost but seeing as he missed my question earlier and he’s here now –

    Welshgeordie – if you are able to read this, or get a primary schoolchild to read it out for you – what is it you actually get out of coming on to this blog with your entirely useless comments? Are you entertained in some way? Does your fat little body heave convulsively with a bass guffaw when you type one of your peurile offerings? Do you spill wotsits and tuborg onto your crummy carpet layered with wiry dog hairs when you chortle at the nuisance you create? I don’t see your point, I don’t think anyone does. Tell us your motive.
