    Exactly Rafa is the lynch pin holding everything together at the moment. He knows he'll be in demand this summer.

    Nothing contradicts anything i said either re the "new asking price"
  3. Rafa Benitez

    Well at least i read the piece & there's no mention of the new asking price. Might be an idea to have a read yourself before you have a dig Gloomy mate

    23 April 2018 – Sky Sports: ‘Negotiations over the sale of Newcastle United to Amanda Staveley will need to make significant progress over the next month if they are to stand a chance of success, Sky Sports News understands. A shortened summer transfer window, coupled with the World Cup finals in Russia, means any potential talks with PCP Capital Partners will need to be rekindled in the next few weeks if they are to have sufficient time to recruit in the summer. Having gambled on Newcastle surviving the drop this season, it is understood Newcastle owner Mike Ashley will be looking to recoup between £380-£400m from the sale of the club, which is significantly more than the £300m that was offered by Staveley last October.’

    I think that ship sailed into the sunset when Ashley publicly called them timewasters

    Benitez has drive & ambition & wants to win trophies. Ashley couldnt give a shit as long as we're in the Premiership & he's getting his free fortnightly worldwide advertising for SD..

    Asked now if he can ‘trust’ Mike Ashley, Rafa Benitez took the diplomatic route and instead said ‘I think the answer is…that Everton is the next game, and I have to prepare for that’.

    Only if Ashley gives him what he needs this time. He's achieved to phases of his project with little investment for him to push on & complete phase 3 he needs some financial backing with out it i think he'll be off. As CT says there'll be plenty sniffing round for his services. The ball is in Ashleys court.
  9. Excellent win a great 3 points sets us up very nicely for the Everton game next Monday night
  10. Any chance of us hanging on to Kenedey next season might be diminishing as PSG & Bayern Munich have been in touch with Chelsea
  11. Rafa Benitez

    No bother mate but we all have it at the backs of our minds.

    Just saying i wouldn't be surprised he's perfect for Ashley. He's a yes man, he'll take all the flack from the fans, he wont question the budget, he's a shit manager & would be a nightmare for us the fans but perfect for Ashley.
  13. Rafa Benitez

    Ah right
  14. Rafa Benitez

    And there's me thinking it was an open forum & everyone was allowed an opinion
