'No excuses!': Newcastle United fans send strong message to Mike Ashley after Fulham triumph
Newcastle United fans have reacted to their fine victory over Fulham - and have sent a strong message to Mike Ashley.
Rafa Benitez's side ended the campaign with a 4-0 triumph at Craven Cottage - and fans have now urged Ashley to secure the future of their manager.
The Spaniard's current contract expires in the summer, and fans are keen to see him commit his future after the Magpies put in another stellar display.
Here's how supporters reacted to the Fulham triumph:
@George__Gordon said: "What a season we’ve had, Ritchie, Hayden, Schar, Almiron, Rondon, Perez, etc all absolutely superb and fought for the club, not to mention, Rafa is a miracle worker and we NEED to keep ahold of him. WHO’S THAT TEAM WE CALL UNITEDDDD"
@Cut_Thumb added: "Great result, great league place given the lack of investment. Can only hope Rafa gets a half decent deal"
@mickwatson65 commented: "Great second half of the season for #NUFC If only the owner had an ounce of ambition..."
@Ginkohro tweeted: "Finish the season on high, hat off everyone and thank you for this season. Hopefully we can make progress from this moment"
