My ideal choice of replacement would be:— Andy (@El_Tibur0n) May 4, 2019
1) Rafa on a 3 year contract
2) Rafa on a 5 year contract
Rafa to stay, I want him to hopefully build something here and with just that bit more backing from the hierarchy he can do that. He’ll actually make more money for him ! Imagine the city buzzing again with excitement instead of, can we finish in the premier league this season !— Paul Usher (@Paul_Usher1) May 4, 2019
Am I the only one who thinks Wenger wouldnt be able to do what Rafa’s done on a shoestring budget— Toon (@solaidback69) May 4, 2019
Wenger to #NUFC. Of course! Rafa can feck off ’cause we’re getting Arsene and he’s happy to bounce around the relegation zone. Nice try, Keith.— fil (@PhilJoRoro) May 4, 2019

Benitez won’t leave— Richard! (@RichardjNUFC) May 5, 2019
Benitez is a brilliant manager and has been superb at St. James’ Park, but Wenger would be a stunning and blockbuster managerial appointment for Newcastle.
Wenger is an Arsenal and Premier League legend, and the Frenchman commands huge respect in the footballing community.
If the Frenchman succeeds Benitez at Newcastle, then it will not be bad for the Magpies.
