I dread to think of the utter mess we would now be in if this legend had of walked away last summer!

It absolutely beggars belief that the w***** of an owner has messed him about in two consecutive transfer windows! Sort it out you fat pleb or the Keegan reaction will seem like absolutely nothing if you force Rafa out!

Wasn't Moyes the backup plan had Rafa said no originally after McClaren? Scary. :lol:

In his press conference today he thanked all the fans, journalists, medical staff etc for their support through his recovery from his operation.

He also said he can run like Usain Bolt now after his hernia op :lol:

Benítez has clearly been moved by the torrent of “get well” messages that have poured in from adoring Newcastle fans. “There were a lot,” he said. “My commitment was already 100% and it still is but, if it was possible to say 101%, then it is now 101%.”

Sounds almost cordial between him and Ashley. God I hope they can sort the issues out.

Winning games helps everything.
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.”

We've heard plenty of promising soundbites before so I'm sure his patience isn't infinite, but it's good to know that he's not definitely planning on leaving at the end of the season. It wouldn't really make sense anyway, if he wanted to go, he'd have gone. He's here so he's carrying on as normal - building. You don't build if you're planning on leaving.

Just some honesty and face to face communication would do. I'm sure Rafa would happily put up with a limited budget for a season if he didn't think he was being lied to.

Nowhere that I can see is there a quote from Rafa about having the final say, or indeed any day, in the transfers. :lol:
