Kako pišu ostrvski mediji, pre svih Daily Mail, Times, BBC i Sky Sports, menadžer Newcastle United-a Rafael Benitez je vrlo blizu ostanka na klupi našeg voljenog kluba, bez obzira što će klub naredne sezone igrati u Championship-u.

Novinar The Times George Caulkin u intervjuu za BBC radio 5 Live je rekao:

"Things have progressed significantly today. There was a three hour meeting with Rafa and Mike Ashley on Sunday night after the Spurs game.

"He's met with Lee Charnley today, that's gone very, very positively indeed. He's flown back to Merseyside where his family are based this afternoon.

"There are more talks for tomorrow in which potential budgets will be discussed but he's already looking at possible signings for Newcastle and the mood music around Tyneside is very, very positive indeed.

"Nothing has been finalised, nothing has been agreed, there is still a chance of course that other clubs will come in for him but.....there is a very good chance that Benitez will be managing Newcastle in the Championship next season.

"It sounds very sentimental but he's been swayed by the reception he's received from Newcastle fans.

"Mike Ashley has not been heavily involved in the club - he is now prepared to give the manager what he wants."



The Times je napisao, da prvi koji će dobiti otkaz u klubu je šef skauta Graham Carr.

NEWCASTLE UNITED  -  TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR  5 : 1

Mi treći od dole, oni treći od gore (posle ovog meča), mi već ispali, oni se borili za titulu i mi ih nabijemo rezultatom 5:1. Samo u Newcastle United-u i nigde više.

Poveo je Newcastle United 1:0 golom Gini Wijnalduma u 19. minutu udarcem sa desetak metara iz gotovo sedećeg položaja. Sa desnog boka centrirao je povratnik u startnih XI Janmaat na dalju stativu, gde se nalazio Sissoko. Ovaj je odmah dodao do Mitrovića, koji je leđima bio okrenut od gola gostiju i majstorski je loptu ostavio WIjnaldumu, koji je rutinski šalje u mrežu Llorisa.

U 39. minutu, Aleksandar Mitrović na centaršut sa desnog boka od strane Sissokoa, glavom zakucava loptu u mrežu gostiju za 2:0. Velika radost na St James' Park-u, Mitrovićev deveti pogodak u sezoni.

Gosti su imali jednu uzglednu priliku za gol, kada je Darlow odlično odbranio udarac jednom igraču Spursa.

U nastavku igre, gosti su stvorili jednu dobru priliku, kada je Eriksen šutirao sa distance preko gola Darlowa.

Međutim, Tottenham stiže do 2:1 u 60. minutu igre. Prelep gol postigao je Erik Lamela, koji je sa desetak metara, iskosa sa leve strane uz pomoć Darlowa pogodio same leve rašlje gola golmana Newcastle-a. To je dalo nadu gostima da mogu do boda, koji im garantuje drugo mesto na tabeli Premier League.

Kane je mogao do izjednačenja, ali je njegov udarac sa petnaestak metara odbranio Darlow.

U 67. minutu utamice, Aleksandar Mitrović dobija direktan crveni karton zbog divljačkog starta nad Walkerom. Ako Mitrović ostane u klubu, dobiće najamanje četiri meča suspenzije u Championshipu, jer je ove sezone već dobio crveni karton. Salve psovki je Mitrović uputio sudiji Tayloru prilikom izlaska sa terena. Imaće produženo leto da razmišlja o svom ponašanju na terenu.

U 73. minutu igre, Sissoko je uspeo da iznudi jedanesterac za svoj tim, kada je u šesnaestercu gostiju pao posle navodnog starta Vertonghena nad njim. Defanzivac gostiju ga pipnuo nije. Siguran izvođač sa bele tačke bio je Gini Wijnaldum, poslavši loptu u jednu a Llorisa u drugu stranu za 3:1.

Sissoko je imao dve dobre prilike da još više povisi prednost Svraka, ali je u jednoj šutirao vrlo dobro, ali mu je Lloris odbranio udarac, dok je u drugoj u situaciji jedan na jedan Lloris ponovo izašao kao pobednik.

Andros Townsend je drmao stativu Llorisovog gola u 85. minutu, ali je u nastavku akcije Janmaat odlično centriao na dalju stativu, gde je  Rolando Aarons prelepim golom doveo svrake u vođstvo od 4:1. Aarons gol proslavlja sa navijačima.

Minut kasnije, tačku na i stavio je Daryl Janmaat, pogodivši donji desni ugao Llorisovog gola, za konačnih 5:1. Aarons je povukao "kontru", lepo uposlio Janmaata, koji sa pet metara mirno loptu šalje u mrežu pored Llorisa, koji nije znao ni gde se nalazio, ni šta ga je snašlo na ovom meču.


Konačan rezultat: 5 : 1

P.S.
Tokom celog meča, navijači su pevali Rafi Benitezu da ostane. Posle meča Mike Ashley je sišao u Benitezovu kancelariju, gde je odmah započeo pregovore o Rafinom ostanku. Ispadanje iz Premier League neće biti toliko tragično ako Benitez ostane na klupi Newcastle United-a i ako mu se da totalna kontrola u dovođenju igrača koje on želi. Ispali smo sa 37 bodova, dva manje od sunderlanda. Čak i da smo u prošlom kolu i pobedili Villu, ispali bi, jer komšije imaju bolju gol razliku. Mi ćemi i dalje pratiti naš Newcastle United. Jedva čekam 6. avgust i prvo kolo Championshipa. Toon Toon.

How did talks on Thursday with Lee Charnley go?

"Fine. We have a good relationship and he's professional and I am professional.... and we were analysing things that were wrong and things that we could do in a different way....so quite positive.

Have you come to a decision about your future?

"No, not really. What we said in this meeting is we will have more meetings. So, again it was very positive in terms of the things that we were discussing.

"I can say to the fans that we will continue so obviously if I decide to come here it’s because I knew that was a massive club with massive support from the fans.

"That was my impression when I came and I'm really flattered with the fans because it has been amazing.

"I know they can be even more positive in the future but at the moment we have to be sure that we  prepare the game for tomorrow properly and after we will try to do the best for everyone: for me, for the club, for the fans, for everyone here.


Is this a big decision for you?

"Obviously. I am professional and I have been in this business for a while no? I am the kind of manager that has achieved what I have achieved working very hard. I was not a famous star as a player so I needed to work very hard.

"I have experienced two promotions with different clubs in Spain and I have experienced being relegated too....so I can understand that there are some people who say 'no he cannot stay', some people say 'he will do it'.

"That is a situation where we have to be calm, we have to be sure. What I want is the same as the fans want. We want a successful team, we want a strong team to be promoted to the Premier League again as soon as possible and that is the situation now.

"We have to talk, we will have more meetings and then we will see what happens. But if I am here and I am discussing these things, because obviously in my head it's a chance, it's a good chance and we have to keep talking.


What sort of assurances would you be looking for?

"I say before, it's like the fans - a strong team capable of being promoted quickly and to compete at the maximum level.

"It's not a question of money, it's a question of if we have a structure that can allow the club in the next year and in the future years to be strong and competing in the Premier League hopefully.

"I am happy to discuss all these things.....at the moment I am really pleased with the first conversation. I am really pleased with the people here - so the staff, players, directors - everyone here since I came has been fantastic.

"I cannot say other things, than I want to be sure that if everything is fine. It has to be fine for me, but also for the club, for the fans, for everyone.


When do you expect to come to a decision?

"It's difficult to say, it depends on the conversation but I think that a couple of weeks could be a decent time.

"In the meantime obviously we have a responsibility and we have been even working preparing the pre season and leaving everything ready for the next year.

"So we cannot say yes and then not have time to move things in a professional way. So we are working as professionals and we are talking and I think that a couple of weeks maximum and we will have an idea."

Sunderland je večeras pobedio Everton rezultatom 3:0, što mu je bilo dovoljno da osigura Premijerligaški status.

Sa druge strane, poslao je Newcastle United i Norwich City u Championship. Aston Villa je ispala davnih dana.

Ako pak, Rafael Benitez odluči da ostane na klupi Newcastle United-a, imaćemo kakvu-takvu nadu u brz povratak u Premier League.

Ako Benitez ode, tumaraćemo nižim ligama najmanje petnaestak godina.

Međutim, nadamo se, da će se tada šljam i talog i od uprave i od igrača pročistiti i da će za klub igrati igrači kojima je stalo da nose crno-beli dres i koji će više voleti grb na grudima nego ime na leđima.

Toon Toon!!!.

ASTON VILLA  -  NEWCASTLE UNITED  0 : 0

Aston Villa i Newcastle United remizirali su na Villa Park-u rezultatom 0:0, dok je sunderland pobedio Chelsea rezultatom 3:2.

U sredu sunderland dočekuje Everton i treba im pobeda da osiguraju opstanak u Premier League.

Meč je protekao bez nekih velikih šansi. U prvom poluvremenu Papiss Cisse je imao dve prilike u kojima u oba navrata nije dobro loptu zahvatio.

Jack Colback je imao najbolju u drugom minutu drugog poluvremena, ali je sa desetak metara šutirao preko gola, dok je rezervista Mitrović svoje tri šanse prokockao.

Ostaće večiti znak pitanja zašto su Cisse, Colback i Wijnaldum počeli ovaj meč i čime su to zaslužili?!


Konačan rezultat: 0 : 0


Team: Darlow, Anita, Lascelles, Mbemba, Dummett, Tiote (Perez 68), Colback (De Jong 90), Townsend, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Cisse (Mitrovic 52).
Subs n/u: Shelvey, Janmaat, Taylor, Woodman.

AVFC: Bunn, Bacuna, Lescott, Clark, Hutton, Westwood, Sanchez, Gueye, Toner, Ayew, Sinclair (Hepburn-Murphy 90).
Subs n/u: Guzan, Richards, Traore, Gil, Lyden,

Sudija: Robert Madley

Gledalaca: 33,055 (3000 Toon Army)

P.S.
Iako teoretski Newcastle United nije ispao, kao što sam gore i napisao, sunderland-u je dovoljna pobeda protiv Everton-a u sredu da ostane u ligi. Dovoljno im je i dva boda iz preostala dva meča (Everton (H), Watford (A)) da ostanu u ligi. Samim tim, mi se selimo u Championship.
