Benitez new bookies favourite for Irons hotseat

rafaNapoli boss Rafa Benitez is the new bookies favourite at 6/4 to replace Sam Allardyce r next season replacing previous favourite David Moyes who remains 2/1.

It is claimed Rafael Benitez is set to leave Napoli at the end of the season even if he is offered a new contract by the Italian club. Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says Benitez can remain at the San Paolo “for the next five years” if he wants to. However, sources close to Benitez claim he will quit Napoli when his contract expires in June, putting  West Ham on alert over his availability over the summer. The former Liverpool and Chelsea manager Benitez joined Napoli in the summer of 2013 and led them to the Coppa Italia and third place in Serie A in his first season in charge. This season Napoli  has failed to mount a serious bid for the title, but Benitez has guided the club to the semi-finals of the Europa League.

David Moyes has moved to second favourite after he appeared to claim he was staying at Real Sociedad.

Moyes said “There’s always speculation, but I’m here to do the job,I’m going to be here. I want to try to get everything in place so we can be at our best for the start of next season. I don’t think we need masses and masses, but there are improvements I’d like to make, things I want to change. Small things that will help. And if we do that. I’ll be here. I’m not going anywhere.”

  1. I’m ready with my taxi Rafa, just tell me when and where… Lol


  2. If Signore De Laurentiis is looking for a replacement BFS/NCS is the very man, sophisticated, not afraid of a big task, a tactical genius and a big fan of the Neapolitan…..oh and mint choc chip, rum and raisin, raspberry ripple…
    BFS/NCS out, Rafa or anyone else in!

    • Great Quick! Signore, perfetto italiano (perfect Italian)… Ahah 😉

      • Thanks Matte. All the genius will need is lungo palla, solitario atticcante e rispetto il lunga……..well that’s what google told me anyway lol

        • Ahaha… palla lunga, attaccante solitario and rispetta il punto (respect the point)… Please don’t correct my English… It could be an endless job… Thanks 😉 lol

          • When my Italian is 10% as good as your English i’d be happy let alone correct you.
            I’m on a countdown I make it 20,070 minutes until the final BFS whistle blows at St. James Park and we can all give up our stats, maths and dislike of BFS and get on with loving our club

          • Thanks Quick… Too nice… 😉

            BFS… – 20.070 MINUTES AND THEN… GAME OVER

  3. Let’s hope this one turns out to be more accurate than the Moyes story although, to me, it’s beginning to look more and more like our regular transfer rumours, with a fistful of rumours about top players and we wind up with also rans. So mentally I’m already preparing myself for another season of Sam, with Carroll upfront, Nolan playing on crutches and lots of hoofball

  4. canchaz you forgot to add be careful what you wish for,
    You must be loosing it my friend,
    2 Daves pay him what ever he wants and end the speculation,
    Give him 100 mil and sit back and watch your money grow have faith you expect the ST holders to pay you up front and have faith REPAY THE SUFFERING FANS,
    there are no shops in heaven you can’t take it with you enjoy it now watch your club become the best,

  5. Dont really care if its Benitez,Ben Stiller or Ben Dover as long as it aint fatty no plans.Bfs./Ncs out!!!!

  6. Lol that made me laugh. Ben Dover is Fat boy in disguise, after all we are being shafted!
