Newcastle fans with one eye on Sundays north-east derby clash with bitter rivals Sunderland may take hope from their new managers previous against Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce.Benitez has claimed seven wins from 12 matches against Allardyce - giving him a win percentage of almost 60 per cent.That ratio is only marginally bettered by his record against a previous Newcastle manager in Alan Pardew - and Pardews Crystal Palace visit Tyneside at the end of April in what could be another crunch clash in Benitezs bid to keep his new club in the top flight.  Benitez record against current PL managers Opp Manager Played Won Drawn Lost Win Percentage Alan Pardew 5 3 1 1 60% Arsene Wenger 13 4 4 5 30.8% Mark Hughes 11 4 6 1 36.4% Mauricio Pochettino 1 0 0 1 0% Sam Allardyce 12 7 2 3 58.3% Tony Pulis 5 2 3 0 40% Improving an already striking win ratio against Allardyce would likely give Benitez, as well as the long-suffering Toon Army, satisfaction because its fair to say the pair dont see eye-to-eye.Their feud started when the then-Liverpool boss was critical of Allardyces Bolton and their physical playing style - a sentiment that did not sit well.Rafa would be very lucky to be in a job if he hadnt got to two Champions League finals, because theyve had some very poor finishes in the Premier League, Allardyce was quoted as saying in a magazine interview in September 2007, after he had left Bolton to take the Newcastle job.

His style of football, his behaviour, everything.He is the perfect role model for all the kids. I am sure parents will enjoy this model and encourage their kids to be the same. I also think Barcelona are trying to copy his style of football.Allardyce responded - and didnt hold back.

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. CHICAGO -- Former Chicago Cubs closer Hector Rondon is on board with his team acquiring lefty flamethrower Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees and is willing to pitch in the seventh or eighth inning or whenever manager Joe Maddon wants him.I think its good for our team, Rondon said before Mondays Cubs/White Sox?game. Hes one of the best relievers we have right now. Im good with that. I know I did a really good job in my role.You have a chance to get that guy, better take it.Rondon has turned into a pretty good closer, but Chapman is simply more accomplished, making it an easy deal to accept, according to Maddon. This is no lateral move, he said.When the team sees that the acquisition raises the level of their abilities, its a very easy sell, Maddon said. Its like a lineup. When you throw one more guy into the lineup, what it does to the rest of the group. The same thing happens with the bullpen. You put the anchor on the backside it really permits you to do other [things].It means Chicagos relievers will all move down an inning starting with Rondon, who will function mostly as a setup man. That leaves Pedro Strop and young Carl Edwards Jr.?for the sixth and seventh innings. Newcomers Joe Nathan and Mike Montgomery can fit anywhere in the middle-to-late innings as well. With the additions of Nathan and Chapman, the Cubs have added 543 career saves to their bullpen since Sunday.Any time you get a guy that throws 105 mph on your team, thats good news, catcher David Ross said. Weree a tight-knit group. Custom Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys. When you bring in a guy that will help you win, its fun.I have a new mitt he can break in.It doesnt hurt when the former closer can take his demotion without a complaint. Respect for Rondon increased in the clubhouse after hearing his take.Im really happy, Rondon said. I dont care if I pitch in the eighth or seventh. The only thing that matters is to come into the game and do my job.Cubs players didnt seem to mind the prospect haul the team gave up to get Chapman. They have bigger things on their minds than a Class-A player coming back to haunt them someday.Im not a big prospect guy, Ross said, laughing. This is my last year ... It says they [the front office] are committed to winning.Asked what he knew of Chapman, Rondon responded: Everyone knows his fastball. Hes coming to us to throw cheese.Maddon believes Chapmans presence opens things up for him in the back end of the pen. Rondon is still bound to get some save chances, but the Cubs didnt give up their No.1 prospect and other players to play the matchup game with Chapman.Hes their man for the ninth inning now and for as long as the team plays into October.He has really different things about him that are really unique to him, Maddon said.Chapman was activated before Tuesdays game, with left-hander?Clayton Richard?designated for assignment to make room on the roster.?
