My plan is to move back to Newcastle later this year, I would love it if he stayed with more control so he could get on with things. It would be a clinching reason for me to move back.

At least one marquee signing would be guaranteed to improve us. Hang on, it'll be Rondon, won't it?

Newcastle United are lining up Lyon manager Bruno Genesio as a replacement for current boss Rafael Benitez if the Spaniard can't agree an extension to his contract at St James' Park, which is set to expire at the end of the season, according to L'Equipe.

Why the f*** would he leave Lyon for Ashley's NUFC?

Another Rafa masterplan. if it wasn't for Dean and a bit of awful defending it would have been 3p.

I wonder what he said to Mike Dean at full time ? I lip read Mike Dean saying "what for".

The reporter asked Rafa what aspects of Dean he was annoyed at and he just said "almost everything". :lol:

We beat Leicester 1-2 away in our next match as well though I still wouldn't expect us to beat Arseanl away from home.

Need to see this, he's absolutely right though. Dean was a f***ing disgrace, and I get the sense he does it by choice, such as "I want Bournemouth to win, so how can I go about making it happen"  :lol:

First question the BBC asked him was something like "that was a great goal for the equaliser wasn't it?" and Rafa managed to turn the question into stating what a terrible job Dean did

Regardless of whether he's making the correct decisions or not, it's clear Dean's reputation has now put him in an untenable position.

Fans of all clubs must look and see Dean's refereeing before the match and shudder, which begs the question, does it affect the players? Do defenders start tackling less because they are worried he will send them off. Do players start diving more?

It's time he was kicked into the championship.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

It's better when you barely know the refs name. Or the days when there were respectable refs around like Ellis, Gallagher, Dallas or Collina.
