Football impressionist Darren Farley is at it again, and his latest Rafa Benitez impersonation features an amusing reaction to Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.
Farley does several brilliant impressions, having the likes of Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard, Brendan Rodgers and Roy Hodgson down to a tee, however his best is perhaps Rafa Benitez.
Here’s his latest sketch:

The line about Ashley’s permitted transfer budget not covering the cost of “a Blue Riband biscuit with my cup of tea” got me!
It’s comedy, but one of the points he raises in the sketch is actually something that was argued amongst Newcastle United fans after the game.
Quite a few fans questioned Rafa’s substitutes in the second half, but it perhaps says all you need to know that they can bring on Alexis Sanchez (a player who cost more than our entire starting 11 that day), whilst we’re forced to bring on the Joselu’s and Atsu’s of this world.
