After a dismal run of one point from a possible 27, football logic dictates that Rafael Benitez should be feeling increasingly uncomfortable as Newcastle United manager.

<a href=""><img src=""  alt="Adidas Women's Tyler Wong Premier Gray Home Jersey: NHL #80 Vegas Golden Knights Popular" /></a>

Even more so in a season when so many Premier League clubs have benefited from “new manager bounce” with Everton, Crystal Palace, and Saturday’s opponents West Ham United rising a collective 16 places towards safety after changing bosses.

But even though Newcastle have entered the relegation zone for the first time this season, Benitez’s tenure appears so safe that Amanda Staveley, the figurehead for PCP Capital Partners group, which is trying to buy the club, has reportedly indicated that sacking the Spaniard risked endangering the deal.


Like the fans, she stands resolutely behind the Spaniard.


As a former Champions League winner, Benitez’s standing is obviously high but what is valued more on Tyneside appears to be his ability to manage despite having to work for Mike Ashley, the widely criticised owner whom Staveley is trying to buy out.


After 10 years of turbulence during which the club have twice been relegated, and a seemingly endless battle with the club’s passionate fan base, Buckinghamshire-born businessman Ashley wants out, preferably by Christmas if a deal can <a href="">Steve Largent Authentic Jersey</a> be done.


Perhaps the only Premier League club sharing such an obvious disconnect <a href="">Dalvin Cook Womens Jersey</a> with <a href=""></a> the fans is West Ham, where co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold have often been pilloried and were booed after the recent defeat to Watford, David Moyes’s first game in charge.


In the face of many insults, West Ham’s owners remain defiant, brushing away suggestions <a href="">Cody Eakin Jersey</a> that, like Ashley, they are interested only in short-term financial gain.


“We are not quitters and we are here to honour our commitment and <a href="">Authentic Steve Largent Jersey</a> cement the long-term <a href=""></a> future of WHU,” <a href=""></a> Karren Brady, the <a href="">Jerome Bettis Jersey</a> CEO they appointed, said in her newspaper column last month.


For now, gripes about ill-judged expensive summer recruitment and continued moans about the move away from Upton Park to London Stadium have been parked as Moyes begins to steer their season round, lifting West Ham out of the relegation zone at Newcastle’s expense.


While Moyes’s squad has genuine Premier League calibre, Benitez has repeatedly warned that more investment was required following last season’s promotion.


Benitez wants quick action when the transfer window opens in January, but British media <a href=""></a> report that the bill for that, plus the possible cost of relegation, is complicating the deal.
