With the news in the Sun today that the takeover by the Bin Zayed is going well and they want Rafa as the Newcastle manager some upbeat comments today from Newcastle fans.
But there’s still a feeling that Mike Ashley could pull the plug on the deal at any time – given his history over the last 12 years as the Newcastle owner.
So fans are still a little bit nervous.
However, if the news in the Sun today (that we have reported on) is accurate then this takeover will be happening and hopefully within the next couple of weeks.
Please let that happen.
It does explain a lot of things including why Rafa has been silent but still looked happy and still talks behind the scenes on how great everything is at Newcastle.
This stuff about him still negotiating a deal seems like a red herring f the club actually is being taken over.
He will simply not sign the deal from Ashley.
Rafa Benitez – will stay on as Newcastle manager if the takeover is successful
If the deal happens then Rafa has earned his chance in the limelight again with the new powerhouse Newcastle United.
Rafa will have known for some time that Sheikh Khaled wants him as the Newcastle manager if the takeover is successful – whatever anybody else says.
And yes, any questions about that to those involved in the takeover would have been denied.
Here are some the tweets from our fans today.
13 days left of Rafa, still no comment from MA, I’m starting to feel this takeover may happen, reason.. MA is a prick but his PR team will have told him fans have had enough and will no longer line his pockets(I hope) #nufc #NUFCTakeover

15 days until the contract of Rafael Benitez ends at #nufc, leaving United managerless.
15 days to give us definitive answers regarding his future and this takeover.
One of the most crucial fortnights in the club’s recent history. ?

After all the takeover talk it would be typical Mike Ashley’s Newcastle that don’t sign Rafa up, pull the plug on the takeover and sell our best young local lad in Longstaff #nufc

Father’s day the morra. How nice would it be to have some positive news regarding the takeover?How many of us were taken to St. James’ by our dads, or still go with our dads? #nufc

I’ve always said a takeover would happen eventually Steve and if Rafa goes we all go…we all want him to stay #NUFC my goodness I’d be devastated if he leaves. But with Ashley he could change his mind but I think it’s gameover time now. Most fans just want Ashley out & then see

It’s a strange situation, the Chronicle is so far out of the loop when it comes to journalism these days it has to resort to copy and pasting stories from other newspaper groups. #nufc

Chronicle now reporting Benitez talks could go on past 30th June. Come on, seriously? What an utterly ridiculous situation #nufc

I agree but I think it stems from the fact if it was well ran and we eee getting investment a lot wouldn’t have a problem. It was the fact that MA was doing it whilst running what can only be described as a “shit show” and creaming free advertising for shit direct #nufc
