  1. 1. Rafa Out?



Recommended Posts

agree with kezza, hes taken us much further down the league than we should be with this team, Ruined an easy chance of wcc glory, his substitutions are head scratchers at times, hes never attempted to win the crowd over, even when he had the chance to by condemning suarez v the dippers he couldnt help but cuddle up to his liverpit buddies. Now we are in the europa league final everybody is hanging out of him? Its the very least this club should be expecting. On the flip side if we get beaten in the final and dont finish fourth, a very real possibility, I wonder how many of the benitez converts will still suggest hes done well. RAFA OUT

Fuck that, we were 4 points behind man utd, still competing for premier league and ither trophies when he arrived. We should easily be in top 4, instead we are counting games/points, relying on other teams to drop points. He ruined our season, got us knocked out of at least 3 trophies. Only way he can salvage this season is if we win europa league and gain CL football.

I'll never respect him. He's crushed our season and is only looking out for his cv

A very naive way of thinking. Our squad needs some proper shaping up, they were the ones throwing away wins that were already in the bag. People like you are the reason we change managers like socks. Fickle and in most cases with extreme bias.

Of course the players have a part to play, they control the ball. But ultimately rafa's 'tactics' including putting on an attacking mid or striker while we are defending a lead cost us big time. Every man and his dog question why he chooses the subs he does. He doesn't counter act the opposing mangers subs. He has a set regime and sticks to it. He only utilises game changing subs because that's the line up he should of used in the first place.

That might be true but it's still not an excuse for the players to concede those late goals. Those that we let in were simple basic defending errors in which the players we had out there that time should be doing better. You don't need 5-6 defenders etc to be defending those situations. It's all about concentration, marking people properly and taking responsibility but the players failed to do that.

Furthermore, Benitez has made such substitutions before and we have seen out games and win them. Why then do we praise the players for doing a good job in getting the win, defending properly etc? Why no praise then for Benitez that he ensures the team see the game out and win them if we are gonna blame him for every dropped points and not the players as well?

Fergie on Benitez...

http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/premier-league/sir-alex-ferguson-rafael-benitez-is-very-concerned-about-his-cv-8602463.html

"He is very concerned about his CV. He refers to it quite a lot," said Ferguson during a press conference this morning.

Before adding: "But you can't dispute the fact he has done a good job in the last few weeks."

1. That is Benitez's 6th 'Manager of the Month' award in the Premier League.

2. Rafa Benitez has won 4 and lost 1 of 5 previous Premier League matches that immediately followed after winning Manager of the Month award.

3. Rafa Benitez is the first Chelsea (INTERIM) manager to win the Manager of the Month award since Carlo Ancelotti won it in April 2011.

Well deserved. Just checked the results for the month and 6 wins out of 9 isn't bad. And in 3 other results, one was a loss against Rubin which was a good result (as we did what was needed to qualify). The others were City (which we deserved to loose) and Liverpool which we drew only because of referees and that racist biter.


So overall a very good month, hoping this May goes the same way and we win the Europa and qualify for CL. Both look very likely in my opinion.

SO where is Rupert? He must be very happy today. Unleash the fury on us, mate. :D

He is probably trying to get justice for Count Suarez ;)

for those that like the facts:

*********************************

FSW

42 matches - 23 wins 9 draws 10 losses

RDM

42 matches - 25 wins 8 draws 9 losses

*********************************

Didn't realize that losing to Man City & dropping points will get you gaffer of the month :rolleyes:

Just for the record, only Premier League results are taken into account in this Manager of the Month award. It has nothing to do with other competitions' matches.
