NUFC to Ashley is just another one of his businesses. He has no personal  links to the club apart from owning it. I doubt very much he cares whether they win or lose every week as long as they can stay in the PL with little or no outlay. The club is probably running as efficiently as it can now & that probably suits Ashley. He just sits back watching the TV money come in  as  we struggle to survive another season. As soon as Rafa started questioning Ashleys financial methods he was on borrowed time. As much as it hurts its probably time for Rafa to move on as he's getting nowhere fast here. Around mid table is probably as good as it'll ever be with Ashley in charge

He represents Ashley's model in such undiluted shitness that no, he does not deserve any support. Change needs to be forced, he needs to be out of the club because crap, old managers ready for the kna

Get in, Rafa. Far too many managers talking about how they wouldn't want to disrupt the game and sabotage the "entertainment". Like football is a show in which racism must occasionally be tolerated, r

But when another manager comes in who is, let's be honest, going to be shite compared to him, gets relegated and then the money will drop.


But we all know this.

He’ll throw money at the next manager. Whether it’s enough and the recruitment is good enough ( like with Pardew) or if it’s a disaster like McClaren was is anybody’s guess. You’d think another relegation is in the post though. Where Ashley’s been lucky in the past though is where we’ve bounced straight back up. Absolutely no guarantees that’ll happen next time. Then we’ll see how keen he is to hang around I guess. What a fantastic thing to have to look forward to as fans.

32 days of the season left & Rafa's still waiting on a reply from Ashley. I can see this turning into a similar situation Shearer had with Ashley were he was frozen out.

Tbf to The Fat Cunt, he’s busy fighting over wanting to buy yet another failing High St. chain to further expand his Empire of Cuntery. 

 

Why the fuck would he bother with us? :D

After the demands he made today it’s pretty certain that Ashley rather appoints Joe Kinnear than giving Rafa a positive answer.

The only way to success is for dear Mr. Ashley to get rid of Benitez, replace him with good ol' Joe Kinnear, appoint the brolly-boy MaClaren as his assistant, bring back the great Pardoo as coach with Carver as his aide, and cap it all by appointing Denise Wise as technical director of everything. With the installation of this very kind of managerial management managers how can dear Mr. Ashley not manage to find success sometime, somehow, somewhere. After saying all that, yes I am fucking old, perhaps in the early stage of dementia but, c'mon, I've got nowt better to do than compose drivel in my spare time.:D

It's not looking good is it ?

George Caulkin at The Times:

‘Rafa Benítez has had no response from Newcastle United three weeks after telling the club’s hierarchy what it will take to keep him at St James’ Park beyond the end of this season.

At Newcastle’s request, the manager submitted a wishlist in the week before their Premier League fixture at Arsenal on April 1, in the expectation that they would form the basis of contract negotiations. As of last night, he was still awaiting a reply, causing Benítez to seek clarification from the club; with only four games still to play, the clock is ticking.

Three weeks after submitting his contract wish list to Newcastle United (at their request), Rafa Benitez has heard nothing back.

Have avoided incremental updates like this as far as possible but the clock is ticking.

Hopefully there will be a positive response from the club; Lee Charnley is doing media briefings this week (not with me) on the club’s accounts and I’m sure he’ll be pushed on Rafa’s future.

Charnley seems the kind of bloke to let things fall ridiculously behind so he’s probably still opening e-mails from February at the minute.

True but this has all the hallmarks of what happened with Shearer

The only way I can see him being here is if we were taken over. I think the fact Rafa isn’t hearing any response to his requests is pretty damning. 

 

If if he goes we’ll go down imo, there aren’t many managers which could get this sort of defensive solidity out of this squad (certainly none we’d get) and without Rondon our forward line is very weak without that focal point.
