The January transfer window’s inactivity may have raised the old doubts about Mike Ashley and what he wants for Newcastle United but with Rafa Benitez at the club there is still cause for optimism.

In this latest issue of true faith (TF129) newly recruited writer, Patrick Fagan speculates on what might happen this coming summer and the work Rafa has to do if (when) we are promoted come May.

This article is worth a good 10-15 minutes of any thinking Mag’s time and we commend it to you.
