I think Rafa Benitez had his pants on fire when saying this about Man City team selection: “It was not about resting players for Saturday…”
‘Surely now is the time for Rafa Benitez to rest Gini Wijnaldum against Manchester City and look to use him as an impact sub…’
Stats over last two seasons show relegation form without Cheick Tiote and safety with him…
Alan Shearer: “Mitrovic is out, Shelvey is out, they’re out for a reason, they’ve not given enough to the team.”
He never stopped going: breaking up City attacks, tidying up play and of course, hurting people because, you know, Tiote.
Manchester City fans: ‘Our season has been shameful, they call themselves professionals, they should be ashamed cos I certainly am!’
Jamaal Lascelles: I’m there to boss people about, make sure everyone’s doing their jobs and keep on at everybody, and I think it’s working.”
Something Newcastle players have been lacking for years now. Poor attitude is endemic at the club, from boardroom to dressing room.
Rafa Benitez: “The reaction of the team…you have to be pleased.”
Vincent Kompany: “It was a hostile environment and not a bad result.”
