All I can say is that there's a lot of changes happening in the background at the club, the sort of things that you would imagine Rafa would have a say in.......I can't imagine Charnley/Ashley making these sort of changes unless they're being advised by someone like Wise for example.
I'm quietly confident, but knowing how Ashley has f***ed up golden opportunities like this before just by being a massive manbaby c*** in the past, you just never know.

In my opinion, this is infinitely more likely than them giving more control to Rafa.

I'm certainly not dismissing it although you'd imagine that if this sort of thing was been done without Rafa's knowledge, he would have f***ed Ashley off by now.

I'm pretty certain Rafa wouldn't give a s*** if it's done without his knowledge.

So Rafa and Ashley met on Thursday. Then both respective agents and legal advisors for both parties thrashed out a provisional contract on Friday for both Ashley and Rafa to go over this weekend.

I assume this means Justin Barnes will be representing the club and dealing with Rafas team.

I’m not any more hopeful that he will stay but my understanding of it, is that there’s bits in the contract that Rafa wants and then bits that Mike does.. so it’s anyones guess if that’s enough to make it happen.

Barnes isn't a practising legal professional, so no. Club will be represented by their usual legal advisors (they use a number of firms for different things).

Absolute travesty if we lose this man

The Academy master plan that Rafa Benitez is trying to sell to Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley

http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/academy-master-plan-rafa-benitez-16295141#ICID=ios_ChronicleNewsApp_AppShare_Click_Other

Ashley - I don't want to invest in players in their 30s there is no value for money.

Benitez - Fine lets invest in the academy and bring in our young players through.

Ashley - No don't want to do that either, costs a lot of money.

Benitez - So let me get this straight, you don't want to invest in players in their 30s, but not in the academy either.

Ashley - Glad you understand my vision.

So at this stage it's not in anyone's interest to leak a story? Sounds promising
Mike Ashley stole my 30's

Only at an Ashley ran NUFC can we make a big deal out of signing a manager that wants to stay, that the fans want to stay and that the club "say" they want to stay. :idiot2:

quick lads get your money on rafa staying, heard skybet is canny
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

I would love it if we spent big on a quality central midfielder to partner Longstaff.

Well they must pay to use the Sky name.

I thought BSkyB have a percentage in the company? Not a major percentage but a percentage.

Well, that's all the right positions at least. Though i'd really prefer "wing backs" to be the term used rather than full backs. Splitting hairs though.

I wonder if we will hear anything today, isn’t today day ten since Rafa’s interview about when we will know?

Makes me feel anxious.
