I am feeling fully invigorated now that Rafa Benitez is showing how to be a proper manager, after the recent years of dross in the manager’s office.

He is truly an inspiration to all Toon fans who were down in the dumps following relegation and the way the club was being run.

It now looks as though there is a complete rethink in all aspects of the club not just the playing side, long may it last.

On the minus side, Charnley is still there, although I believe it is only in the capacity of Ashley’s spy in the camp, reporting back to the fat controller.

The bit that angers me though is that Graham Carr is still employed at Newcastle United.

How can this failure still be there with the title of Chief Scout?

I don’t think Rafa will be influenced by him, so just get rid in case he causes any more cock-ups.

We are moving forward and don’t need any surplus baggage.
