Here are some comments from Newcastle fans with the disastrous news that Mike Ashley has the gall to allow Rafa Benitez to leave the club.
Maybe the best manager we ever had given the restrictions in which he had to manage the club.
There’s mow way now that Mike Ashley can remain as owner and we think the takeover of the club could all be a ruse.
What a disastrous state the owner has left Newcastle in.
ASHLEY MUST GO.

Dont blame rafa at all for leaving the club. Ran by fucking divvys who want nothing more but to line their pockets, rafalution is over ? #NUFC

Extremely shit but disappointedly predictable news Rafa’s leaving #NUFC no tickets, no kits, no nowt for me and the bairns until Ashley goes. I honestly think he’s enjoying the upset he causes.

This is an ideal opportunity for the fat parasite. Benitez walks away, @AyozePG etc will follow and him demanding big fees for them. Bring in monk/Hughes and give them a pittance. Win/win for him and the likes of ameobi etc telling sky how good of an owner he is #nufc

I actually feel for the fans of #NUFC having the parasite that is Mike Ashley running the show. We had a close look briefly at just how much he treats fans of clubs with utter contempt. Sooner we rid our club of his Sports Direct influence the better. #RFC

5% increase on season tickets and this is their selling point. I promise you, if you renew, buy merchandise not a single penny you spend will benefit the club. You’re funding the demise of a once great club being bled dry and strangled of all hope to fund his retail venture #NUFC

I’m hoping they’re using the word ‘peaceful’ as a smokescreen because really they’re going to smash the place to bits! There’ll be a PR spin from Bishop soon that’ll result in you cancelling it anyway… #NUFC https://t.co/jjvB771AIv

I love that optimists still exists where #nufc are concerned but there won’t be a takeover.

Blatantly club are gonna take the piss and appoint a 2nd rate manager, Right at the end of the window, claim we couldn’t get transfers over the line and then release a statment calling “ interest “ parties timewasters. Club is like Groundhog Day. #AshleyOut #nufc #Boycott #joke

I hope the players strike and refuse to report for pre-season, and refuse to play in that shite Chinese tournament. #NUFC

Was more chance of Rafa penning an extension than the BZG taking the club on.
Rondon wont be returning, Perez and other players will be leaving. #NUFC

Very worrying times ahead unfortunately. Thank you @rafabenitezweb for the last 3 years, you bought the club together in quite frankly terrible circumstances, you united a city and forever will be remembered as one of our best. #thanksrafa #rafa #nufc
