Benitez at breaking point? – Now heavily tipped by the bookies to be first boss to leave

By Neil Langer

The bookies are currently offering odds of as little as 5/1 for Rafa to be the first Premier League manager to leave their ahead of the new 2018/19 season – with Leicester’s Claude Puel the only other top flight boss now tipped to go before him.

A sad reality, but place your bets now before he becomes ‘odds-on’. Have you ever seen a more dependant Benitez in his interview after the Braga game? For the first time both he and the team looked deflated. Just look at how dejected he looks here..

The whole situation at Newcastle is not devastating. It is looking increasing difficult to sell the club to new signings.

We harp on about 52,000 fanatical Geordies inside the magnificent ‘Toon Temple’ St James’s Park and yet this in the past has been a massive attraction, but at the moment it’s the only attraction.

On the 11th August, live on TV, St. James Park will still be ‘sold out’ to watch the opener against Spurs.

The faithful will once again be lining the pockets of a man who is treating them with contempt. The transfer window will be closed

and we will be facing an ever affluent Premier League. Mr Ashley would appear to be a little unhappy that Rafa has refused to sign extensions to his contract. This will be a new experience to him, with previous managers clambering to sign on the dotted line.

Unfortunately Rafa, the business man will remain defiant, meagre funding that may have been made available will continue to be withheld and we will all suffer. Hold your ground Rafa, whilst your future may lie elsewhere – your expectations and those of the supporters will never be met with this owner.

  1. Who can blame Rafa, and what we do ? After 10 years of Ashley there does not appear to be any plan in place to get rid of him.

  2. Well for the good of the club and all the fans i hope Rafa walks ,not because i want him too leave , far from it but its time for Armageddon . The only way too get the fat twat of a owner out is too get the club to start making a loss . If Rafa Goes we get relegated and next time we wont come back as quikly as the last 2 times , no more tv money , no more full attendences and a lot less sponsors . The cunt of an owner will be hit in the pocket big time after a couple of years in the champioship and at Some point accept a low price too just shift the club on .it will hurt us all but for the sake of the club we love ,it needs too happen ,otherwise as long as we stay in the premiership we are stuck with the blood sucking Leech of an owner .

  3. I don’t understand fans that suggest not going to the stadium. Go support the team just bring banner “don’t buy at sport direct” for the TV cameras. Start picketing his stores. He will run to his mommy. He is just a bully playing sadistic game with our club.

    The point is we need NUFC too become loss making , SD is massive both country wide and on the internet .Boycotting his stores in Northumberland wont matter a jot , dont expect the rest of the country too sympathise with our lot and think we will help the geordies out .it wont happen .
