      Regardless of what Rafa did here, he's embarrassing himself at Newcastle.  They didn't even register a shot on target today I read. That team on paper should be around 10th-12th... 19th right now. Newcastle fans asking for him to be sacked, can't say I blame them.

      So you dishonour McMahon's achievements, just because it wasn't Istanbul.

      I'm not dishonouring, discrediting or insulting anyone's achievements, but this is a Rafa Discussion Thread, and he gives me plenty of material to work with than just Istanbul.

      Macca on the other hand has 3 league titles on his CV with this club. His legacy is 5 winners medals. Through no fault of his own, he didn't have the chance to win a European trophy for us, let alone win 7 of them, as Rafa had. Holding him responsible for his results doesn't mean he's a manc. Nor me either. He's just told the truth, as I do.

      He took all the credit for Istanbul, so he can also bear the responsibility for why his current club got relegated and where they are now. It works both ways.

      Not looking for favours, and not looking to guide anyone to any land either. All I do is hold him accountable for his results on the field, like most football coaches are.

      You can make of it what you will and others have the right to differ but at every club, the coach is held responsible for his team's results. He should be no different.

      Macca was a player though not a manager so comparing his honours to Rafa is frankly f**king stupid.

      Seen loads though not asking for him not to be sacked and ramping up their campaign against Ashley. He's the biggest c**t there!!

      You can’t compare player records to managerial records

      Yes I can and Yes I have. They both represented this club for years. If I ask both of them to show off their league winners medals here, one will have 3, the other will have, unfortunately, 0. That's not to discredit anyone, that is a fact.

      In more recent news, he was scheduled to resume his pundit duties on Sky MNF last week, but cancelled at the last minute. While he's nicked a point at feeble Southampton, in a relegation two-pointer. 10 years ago, we lost our first game of the season. Today, we are unbeaten at the top of the EPL. We've moved on, while he's still fighting a losing battle.

      You seem obsessed about Birkenhead, don't know why. Whatever it is, it has nothing to do with me.

      They won a home game against Watford. It might just feature prominently on their end of year DVD. Assuming of course, they invest more to produce a better quality DVD than they used to.

      I also notice last week, that another ex-member of this parish, did the job Rafa couldn't in the past two years, knock Nottingham Forest out of the League Cup. See, it's not rocket science.

      have you seen his posts subtlety is not his strong point. I thought about explaining it to him but I cant be arsed.
      Anyway a good win for Rafa yesterday keeping the hounds at bay for now. I really don't know why he puts up with the shambles of the club called Newcastle.

      Rafa will turn the ship around. They have Burnley, West Ham, Everton, Wolves, Huddersfield and Fulham in the next 6 matches. Of them only Everton are in the top half of the table, at 9. Another finish around 10th in the table I reckon. He's consistent Rafa : )

      Was being diplomatic mate.
      Well familiar with the posters unrelenting criticism of Mr Benitez and to acknowledge such vitriol would appear to give it some credence .

      Newcastle have a good fan base and also some history, Ashley is the fly in the ointment and maybe Rafa can see a glimmer of hope in the conundrum.

      What history is this? Imo, they have the patience of job to pay out 50 quid a head (or whatever they charge) to watch what they're served up every week.

      Now that he's beaten the mighty Watford and Bournemouth at home, it's back to the familiar routine of everytime they win he takes the credit, and everytime they don't it's someone else's fault, never his. As it has been for most of the past 15 years.

      Fulham invested the amount of money in their team that Rafa demands. Where has it got them? 20th in the league.

      Newcastle United have won 4 Championship league titles, 6 FA cups and a Charity Shield as well as the Inter-City Fairs cup and the 2006 EUFA cup.

      No matter your neurosis with Mr Benitez he is doing a job managing a club with limited resources and owner issues, comparing hypothetical financial projections with other clubs is not a viable statement.
