Didn't watch the game or coverage but by what I'm reading I think it might have been Rio and Keys in the editing room.

Now that I look at it again with a more critical eye it does look like some producer is cutting it. Looks like an earlier corner or something.

What a load of absolute f***ing bollocks. That's edited to make it look that way. No one else in that shot is celebrating a goal so clearly taken at a different time. We have no idea what Benitez is reacting to, but it's not a Newcastle goal being scored.

I'm sure that on the stream I was watching the commentator said it was to do withe the chance Chelsea had immediately after we scored the goal.

I may be wrong though.

The goal goes in and everyone is cheering, except Rafa who genuinely looks pissed off. Dont know if it was because of the corner routine or because he wants us to lose to prove him right? Either way, he lost a huge amount of credibility in my eyes.

That's what I saw live, even the commentators said he looks pretty mad about something.

Haven't seen it, what does he do? Surely he's not in a huff because we didn't play the corner short?

Lejeune looked class yesterday, I’ll be much more confident about our chances of survival with him in the team. Our best defender.
Yeah I agree.

It was around this time last season he came back from injury and our form turned around. Dubravka and Kenedy get a lot of the credit for that due to the impact they had but Lejeune coming back was just as important.

It'll be intresting to see him and Fernandez at the back together, I'd say they're our best 2 defenders and I think they'd compliment each other well.

I must admit im a little concerned about Rafas reaction to the goal. Does having his own way really matter more to him than scoring a goal? thats f***ing nuts.

At least Pardew's corner routine was consistently bad, he didn't ever lure you into thinking we might occasionally just stick it in the mixer. Rafa's a tease.

The short corner routine is absolutely pointless.

Reminds me of a story Peter Crouch said from his time at Liverpool when Rafa was in charge. Rafa played Kuyt as the striker, Bellamy on the right wing and Crouch on the left wing (if you can believe that). Crouch said he had a shocker in the first half as half the time he ended up in the LB position and getting absolutely destroyed. Anyway, in the second half of the game crouch started putting himself into more central positions and scored two goals and Liverpool won the game. But Rafa wasn’t happy with Crouch as he’d put his own game above that of the team...!
That sounds nuts. Bring back King Pardew! Last manager to get us in the top 6 :bandit: <run>

We have to beat Cardiff, Huddersfield and Burnley and Southampton at home IMO. A draw away at Fulham would be fine but we can’t drop points in those home games.
Definitely those Home games are going to be key.
But as I said above 8 points from those 4 games plus another win and two draws would be enough.

I actually think 2 or 3 wins will be enough, Huddersfield won't pick up more points then us so don't worry about them, Fulham just look like they can't keep a clean sheet(bar against us) so I can't see them picking up the wins they need to catch us.

That leaves Cardiff they play both Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool so I can't see them picking up anything there. Even in between those they have some very tough games Everton, Wolves, Southampton and ourselves I really can't see them getting more points then us either.

Oh, and Chelsea fans are absolute s***. Think they had one murmur of a song after an hour and that was literally it.
