    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    I suggest you do some more research. Begovic was the only player Brands brought to the club in the summer. Gray was 100% Rafas signing. Go and read Rafas interview in which he clearly states that he had been following his career over the last 4 years. Was regularly in touch with his agent and...

    No one was saying that at 2-1

    Rondon was unanimously praised last night.

    How do you work that one out when Rafael personally phoned and text Gray, asking him to move to Everton. Its been said that Rafael has been keeping tabs on him for 4 years, wanted to sign him for Newcastle. Oh look Rafael makes a fantastic signing, we can't give him credit though.

    Who's next after Benitez

    No one wants him full stop. He had I believe 4 interviews this summer and failed. He was even overlooked by a championship side.

    Or he acknowledges there's deeper problems within the club than the manager.

    Again Carlo was here for 21 matches the season before in which he took us from 15th to 12th. I think people seem to forget this. You're also talking about the finish of a full season after spending over 90 mil. Rafael hasn't had anywhere near as long and a fraction of the transfer budget. Give...

    People need to actually give him. A chance to get a few more players in and get our injured players back.

    It's a relevant point whether you like it or not.

    2021/22 Rafael Benitez

    You're just wumming at this point. We know he had 10 games to save them and it went down to the last game of the season. He had them 8th in form when they went down, if he had the whole season, they would have comfortably been in the top 8. Took them back up as champions first time of asking and...

    Stabilised Newcastle. Kept Dalian in the Chinese Premier League 2 seasons in a row and offered him an ambassador role with a permanent position of overseeing their academy. Built Napolis best side for 2 decades which they reaped the rewards from for around 5 years, to the point that this summer...

    I'm not saying he doesn't take some of the blame, but he can't win, he tries to play attacking football and we ship goals because we don't have the right players, if he reverts to a defensive formation some of the guys on here would say he's playing too defensive. People on here say we need to...

    The fact of the matter is he's still revered as a master tactician and is well known for building clubs. He's exactly what we need right now. Sure it's going to be tough, but I think it will be worth it in the long run.

    You're delusional if you think Rafas career is over if he left here. Fact of the matter is there will always be a club who will take a punt on him. He would walk in to every championship side. There are mid-table foreign clubs who would be interested such as Fiorentina who wanted him in the...

    2 matches in which individual errors messed us up. Sure we probably would have lost against Liverpool, but at 2-1 we were getting back in to the match and they were there for the taking. Watford we were 2-1 up until the last 10 mins and we lost our heads. Both of those games can't be fully...
