Ashley won't sack Rafa, because he'd be loathed to pay compensation.

And with regards to the Rogers link, via the club's preferred 'media partner' - they are still clearly briefing against Rafa too.
The truth points to itself

Seems a big career step down to come here. He’ll never be able to do anything under Ashley, don’t see the point. He seems like someone who rates himself.

I always think he must be desperate to manage in the Premier again, Celtic are a big club, but Scottish football is a piddling little competition. It would be a masterstroke from Ashley, with him being a relatively big name, you could easily see the average punter being willing to give him a chance. Especially as Optimistic Nut has already said, the next manager will probably get all the money that Rafa was denied.

Lose the next three and I think he’s gone.

I would think Ashley will be delighted to have the excuse to pump Rafa off down the road tbh  :undecided:

Why would Ashley even need to fire Benitez? He could just let him leave and bring Brenda in for next season. Would suit them both I would have thought. Yes I know this is all probably just wild speculation at this point, but you could see how it would be a perfect solution for Ashley.

Honestly think Brendan could do better than us.

West Ham
Watford
Bournemouth
Crystal Palace
Wolves
Leicester

All viable options for him should the jobs become available.

We'll look in the bracket below. A Championship manager from a smaller club ala what Villa did. Or a dinosaur.

It's going to be f***ing heartbreaking seeing literally any other manager get a reasonable budget.

Completely out of context, Rodgers would be an interesting appointment and a club like us could do a lot worse. But I don't even want to think about it. We've got a world class manager already but we're conspiring against him at every turn. Disgusting set of w*****s.

What can can Rodgers do that Rafa can't ? I wish Ashley would just give Rafa a fair crack of the whip and let him run the club for the benefit of Newcastle...........but he's a c***

Because he knows that Rafa will brief against him behind the scenes. The fan movement 'inrafawetrust' is all about the hope Rafa brings. If you bring in Allardyce, as an example, that pair of pricks can revel in battening down the hatches, knowing that we all hate them and take the p*ss whilst staying up year after year.

Ashley wants to feel liked remember. Hence the history of 'yes man' appointments. The 'We owe it to Mike' brigade are what he wants and Rafa will obviously never be that.....hence if he removes the man, he'll feel like he's removed a large part of the problem.

I think being a tight c*** he'd probably be happy to ride out this season rather than pay compensation, if we get relegated some of the blame will get shifted to Rafa. He could bring in any other manager and we'd still go down.

I just might kill myself if Brendan Rodgers becomes NUFC manager. End of days.

He got Liverpool closer to winning the league than Rafa or even free spending Klopp.

It wouldn’t be the end of the world, far from it and probably my first realistic choice should Rafa go.

Would rather Ronny Deila

Would rather an actual manager, but each to their own.

Even if he was suddenly backed (highly doubtful), I suspect there’s been too much crap that’s happened over the last few windows. Will he ever turn it around?

The squad is about as good as the one that finished up last season, yet we’re playing like a team already relegated.

This isn’t Rafas fault, clearly. He’s been shat on by Mike Ashley and it’s taken it’s toll.

I’d always hoped Ashley would be gone and someone with some clout would come in and start building a decent squad. It’s just dragged on though and all that good will and buzz about when Rafa first arrived is fading away bit by bit.

Honestly couldn't care less who the next manager it is, because whoever it is I'll be much much more than I am now to try and get Ashley out.
Dead in the middle of Little Italy little did we know that we riddled some middle men who didn't do diddely.

...

2-0 up at Old Trafford until 70th minute. Holding out for a 0-0 at Palace (restricting them to four shots on target, we had three). Also a 0-0 at Cardiff, where we had 10 men for half an hour—not referring to how supremely s*** Kennedy played—had six  shots on target to their one and missed a last min pen ( am referring... never mind).

In between the above, we’ve lost 2-1 to Spurs (15 shots each), Chelsea (drawing until an 87th min own goal) and Arsenal (two shots on target each) at home and to Man City away. None of them unexpected losses, humiliating results, nor characterised by unmotivated ‘already given up’ performances.

Forgot to mention Leicester. Probably most disappointing performance for me and closest fit to the point highlighted. Saying that, giving away a stupid pen at that stage was always going to make a tricky game very difficult.

Personally, I think we’re just getting started. Just hope everyone’s head is on the game—those that matter, I mean.
