Most of the tweets from our fans today center around the situation of Dwight Gayle with West Brom saying they can’t afford his wages next season.
And of course the long and drawn out negotiations between Rafa and Mike Ashley – but we are all hoping there can be an announcement early this week and then we can really concentrate on this transfer window.
And celebrate keeping Rafa onboard.
And Rafa must give a press conference if and when he signs his new contract.
And if you have time, please send birthday wishes to Florian Lejeune, that brave warrior of ours, who is 28 today.
Oh – is that now too old?
Newcastle fans – still anxious
He is fighting again to recover from his second ACL knee injury in 9 months – he needs all the encouragement we can give him.
Here are some tweets from our still anxious fans today.
Here’s a prediction… opening game of the season spurs vs #nufc dwight Gayle starts upfront as the only recognised striker at the club!

Gayle won’t be short of suiters this summer so if WBA ain’t prepared to pay his wages plenty other Championship teams will, Fulham for one has been linked multiple times in the past and will have a big old chunk of money when Mitrovic and Sessegnon leave #NUFC

If Rafa Benitez signs a new contract at Newcastle, I think we need to put Mike Ashley & Lee Charnley in charge of Brexit negotiations #nufc

Tell you what let’s stop the talk of selling Dwight Gayle for £15m and jeep the lad. Back up to Rondon, a really useful player for plan B…..#NUFC
