Newcastle once again have found themselves at the mercy of owner Mike Ashley this summer, with the Sports Direct owner refusing to inject enough cash into the club to fund transfers that Benitez feels his squad is in dire need of.
Newcastle fans have taken Benitez's side after the Spaniard's recent outburst towards the club's hierarchy, and it appears Liverpool fans are also keen to voice their support for their former manager.

The footballing world appears to be in unison on this one subject - Newcastle fans have been continuously let down by their owner. If the club want to hold onto a manager who, with all due respect to Newcastle, could be managing at a higher level, then this issue will need to be resolved sooner rather than later.
