Rafa Benitez to Newcastle?

INTERNET RUMOUR ALERT!  There are rumours circulating around the world wide web that Alan Pardew is set to be binned this Summer and replaced with Europa League winner, Rafa Benitez.  Coo-eeeeeeeh!

Good old Pards has been given the DREADED 'vote of confidence' by the Newcastle board after forgetting to hide how terrible at management he is and almost relegating a side that should comfortably have finished in the top half of the table.  Rafa wants a chance to manage in England again and rebuild his reputation (apparently winning trophies and finishing third isn't enough anymore) soooooooo

Benitez would actually be great with that team, and Newcastle would have a manager of some genuine ability for the first time since Bobby Robson was there.  I wish he hadn't died.  Even now he's still a better manager than Steve Kean
