Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to pile on the praise for manager Rafa Benitez as the club continues to make a respectable return to the Premier League after a season in the Championship.
But the main topic of conversation was Benitez's job at Newcastle overall and how fans couldn't be happier with him so far.
Here's what they had to say:
Rafa Benitez doing a great job with championship players and a club in crises.— Osman (@OsmanZtheGooner) January 1, 2018
It’s not been straightforward this season and even with signings, I don’t expect anything on a plate. But I trust Rafa Benitez to do a job that I didn’t think many of his predecessors were capable of doing. #NUFC— Rohan Banerjee (@RBanerjee23) January 1, 2018
Could you imagine thinking Rafa Benitez was not the best available manager for Newcastle at the minute 路♂️— Jack Colwell (@JackColwell) January 1, 2018
Newcastle United fans are part of one of the best periods the club has seen in some time, with everything the fans have wanted finally looking like it's going to fall into place.

Rafa Benitez is our manager
Mike Ashley is hopefully on his way out
And the mackems are on their way to league one
What a time to be alive!
Even from a neutral point of view, it's great to see a club that's been up and down have such a promising outlook on the future of their club.
