Liverpool damn her and a decent Rafa fan as well. I would like to know from you and Ed01.
What will happen to Rafa. I have kept a agood record of the transfer window so far and you have not improved one bit this season ( I am sorry ) Rafa is a good manager and you should be lucky to have him. His teams are very hard to beat and he slowly gets his team play the way he wants to play.

Do you guys see Rafa leaving midway through the season?


{Ed001's Note - if he can get someone to pay the release clause enshrined in his contract, he will leave. He is not enjoying working with Ashley and Charnley at all. They broke their word to him and made some stupid decisions with regard to limiting the maximum amount they would spend on one player.}

Thanks Ed01. I feel sad it's a ground that fills in 50k people weld in week out! Rafa is a perfect solution for New Castle. He is still regarded very high across Europe and could actually bring in some good names on his own!

Do you think west ham could look into him mate?

{Ed001's Note - they have tried to get him before, so it is possible. Palace is another possible option.}

Don't forget the rest of Europe
Only his family in Liverpool keeps him in the UK.

{Ed001's Note - he would prefer to stay in England to be near his family, as Montse will not go with him when he goes elsewhere and he finds that really hard being away from her.}

{Ed001's Note - where did you say that?}

Ed was at a meeting a week ago
An ex player told me prior Rafa is happy in UK becuse his family is settled, yet the concensus was if things go against him at Newcastle and unless a club who will allow him to manage his way and support him he will consider managing outside tge PL.

{Ed001's Note - ah ok, sorry didn't know you had already said it. His wife is a legend in Liverpool mate, she does massive amounts of work for charity with no spotlight on it at all. Lovely lady and I fully understand why he wants to be near her.}
