Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.
Two managers on the edge?
Newcastle United travel to Manchester United on Saturday still searching for their first win of the Premier League season.

The Magpies were beaten 2-0 at home by Leicester City last weekend, with goals by Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire keeping Rafa Benitez’s side in the bottom three.

Newcastle have scored just four times so far this season and a long battle against relegation is beginning to look likely.

The visitors will be without both Florian Lejeune and Salomon Rondon through injury, but Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez should be available after the pair missed the Leicester defeat. (more…)

Rondon: Disappointing so far
Two points from six games is a paltry return by any stretch of the imagination and it’s a situation that Newcastle United need to quickly resolve.

Much has been written about owner Mike Ashley’s lack of investment in the squad, but the Magpies still have plenty of talented players at their disposal.

A victory this weekend would be a major boost, although there are reasons to believe that October and early November could be a productive period regardless of what happens against the Foxes.

Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley.
Laurel and Hardy – The relegation specialists.
The Premier League is not only the most popular football league on the planet, but it is also the most lucrative. With television rights and top-flight status offering millions of pounds on a yearly basis, every club wants to avoid relegation. But for a club like Newcastle it is vital to stay in the Premier League, Magpies fans cannot cope with more relegation heartache.

Let’s get one thing straight: Rafa Benitez is a top class football manager. The Spaniard has done a tremendous job with the tools at his disposal and Newcastle supporters recognise his efforts. Benitez is not, nor has he ever been the problem. If the Magpies go down it will be down to a lack of financial support from the club’s hierarchy. (more…)
