Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern have just seen the new Premier League season get that bit closer with the club back into training today for the new campaign.
After a month or so off, the Magpies are back in the big-time and the hard work is really set to begin now as they aim to get off to a flyer against Tottenham on the opening day.
For sure, then, Rafa Benitez is going to work his team hard in training and with the club posting about the beginning of training on Twitter, fans have been quick to gee the team up.
Here, then, is the best of what has been said by excited Magpies fans on the social media site – with Rafa Benitez getting special mention:
Rafa was first to arrive at the training ground this morning.
