The Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern haven’t stopped celebrating since yesterday’s stunning 3-0 win over Chelsea at St. James’ Park. Indeed, the punters propping up the bar can’t believe how well this season has gone and those clad in black and white here are hoping for a bright future under Rafa Benitez.
With safety secured weeks ago, yesterday proved a game to enjoy as St. James’ Park reminded onlookers exactly why it is considered a Premier League ground. The calendar year of 2018 has proven a strong one so far on Tyneside and Magpies fans everywhere will be hoping for a big summer.
Whether that happens or not under Mike Ashley’s stewardship remains to be seen, though it appears one man will be leaving either way. As questions remain over the future of Rafa Benitez, Newcastle’s official Twitter account relayed an Instagram message by loan star Kenedy, who thanked fans for their support.

The Brazilian played a major role in keep the Toon Army in the Premier League after arriving on loan from Chelsea in January and, while he was ineligible to play yesterday, took to social media to assure fans his memories in Newcastle will remain with him.
Hopefully a deal can be worked out to get him to stay, though it seems Newcastle fans online aren’t all too confident after his post. Here’s a look at the reaction.
Well he’s not coming back then
