He'd wait til Barnsley to do a goodbye

I think that was just "muted celebration".

Just the shaking of hands with the groundsmen taking the nets down

Unless it was just a class gesture to thank everyone involved

He has to analyse a lot of things and need to do what he needs to do here....his words.

He's staying.

RE: That looks

The interview was a bit more worrying like..but i guess he isn't going to say for sure he will be here at this stage.

Please stay Rafa!

What's to analyse....he just got us promoted and he's got two years left of his contract

I haven't seen the interview so I don't know about the tone of his comments

Ah..i may be over analysing it..thinking about it it was pretty similar to what he said when we were relegated and he stayed..fuck it just going to enjoy tonight for now!

I guess he was never going to say he was deffo staying like..as Ashley has to do his job first.

Anyhow...TOON TOON!

Its a well known fact he analyses everything, to me that bit was normal service will carry on as the season is not over yet.

Benitez said: “You never know, that is football. I am really pleased to be here, and really happy and proud for everything we have achieved. Hopefully, we can put in the foundations for something that will be a guarantee for the future.

“Now is the time to enjoy what we have done. I am sure if we do the right things...We have to prepare everything to be strong enough for the Premier League. We have to wait and enjoy it, play another two games and see where we are.”

I cant think of a single manager or player who has ever come out and confirmed their future at a club? Maybe he is just letting Ashley know that he cant just assume he will stay? Maybe he is saying give me assurances that I will get what I want in the summer before I commit? Maybe its just the whole entire you cant get a straight answer from anyone when it comes to football?

Rafa knows what happened to Chris Hughton when he got us promoted last time, Pardew was out of work that time, as well...

The easy answer to the question is.....Yes, I have two years of my contract left and we have just been promoted to the Premier League, why wouldn't I still be here?

Like I say...other than the odd exception, when has any player or coach ever come out and said anything remotely like this.

99.9% of anything that is said to the media is just said as an easy anwer and to avoid the question. Im amazed that people still read stuff into it.

I'm more amazed you're not reading anything into it

There are issues hanging over from the January transfer window....this isn't just the media chasing a non story

Hopefully they are prepared with a huge list of potential transfers and they pounce straight on them and get them working together from the off. Really feel like we need to get a strong 11 with players capable of stepping in for injuries or lack of form etc with as best we can get to fill the squad out.

I think the hand shaking was indeed a class gesture to everyone that is associated with the club, the bloke oozes class.

The interview was a clear shot at Ashley to say that he has kept his side of the deal and now its Ashleys turn to prove his worth.

Rafa has a lot of power and he is trying to use it, this is what we have wanted from our managers for a decade so let him play the politics when he has to.

If Ashley becomes plays the shithouse (yet again), Rafa walks.

Until that happens I am happy enough to accept all is good.

RE: That looks

enjoy the summer

next season will be a struggle

Ashley started the process to not spend when he stopped the recruitment in January, then we had the forum and accounts where he said we had already spent a lot, despite the money coming from the sale of Sissoko, Townsend, Winaldum etc

back to miserly budgets and managers doffing their caps at ashley
