Rafael Benitez was a very exciting hire, widely lauded when the club finally moved on (albeit probably too late) from Steve McClaren. Appointed nearly a month ago, the Spaniard is still searching for his first win with Newcastle. Having seen matches against relegation rivals Norwich (loss) and Sunderland (draw) pass, the club desperately need to start picking up points. With one win in their last 15 visits to Southampton, conventional wisdom probably says that today is not the day. Which is fine. There are 6 cup finals left after today.
