Right you lot, time for some tough words.
Actually, it's not 'you lot' as a whole, so I apologise, it's probably half of you. It seems the VC membership base is split whether the club should have appointed Rafa. Well here's a wake up call for you. Tough sh*t. It's happened. It's done. No point crying over spilt milk - it ain't going to change anything.
There is absolutely no one with the same level of experience and success that was willing to join Chelsea on what is basically a temporary contract until the end of the season. Roman has done what is best for the club, and there's nothing you can do about it.
Or is there?
I've heard pathetic comments about people boycotting games. What good is that going to do? Weaken our support? Yes. Less revenue for the club? Yes. This is beyond a joke. Not attending games just because Rafa has been appointed is pathetic and won't help our club in any way, shape or form. The best we can do at the moment is accept that Rafa has been appointed until the end of the season and we should get behind the club we love. That's what being a supporter is all about.
Oh, and here's the other one. What good is booing Rafa going to do? Absolutely sweet feck all. In fact, how can that possibly help when he's in charge until the end of the season and what he really needs, like the players do, is to hear and feel our support. Yes, our support - for the club, but not juvenile boos. It's sad. It's weak. It's damaging our team. It makes us look stupid. It makes future managers and players less likely to join to see how immature we are. We need to be in support of the club, whatever decisions they make. Booing isn't supporting. Yes, it's making your opinions heard, but the simple fact is, Rafa is here until the end of the season, let's help him, let's help the players, and help the club out, by showing our support to the club we love, not booing a manager who will be trying his best.
Zonal marking? Worried about it? If it doesn't work, why did Liverpool have one of the best defensive records in the league under Rafa? Stop clutching at straws to try an nail Rafa before he's started For pete's sake, he's been in the job a day - one bloody day - and we're already giving him grief. It's sad and embarrassing. Give the man a chance.
The truth is this. Rafa Benitez was the only manager that was available, that was willing to join us until the end of the season, the one that has both European and Premiership experience, and has a cv better than anyone else available - fact.
Deal with it people. Grow some balls. Have a cup of concrete and harden the feck up. This is about Chelsea. This is about the club we love, NOT Rafa. Yes he said his comments when he was in charge of Liverpool, but fair enough I say. He was doing everything he could to help Liverpool. Chelsea were the enemy. In fact, it takes a man of balls to come out and say what he said about us, but you have to realise, he was doing that in the best interest of Liverpool.
And now he's in charge of Chelsea. And I bet you he will be doing everything possible to help us as well. My request is simple - before you start avoiding Chelsea games and booing Benitez, grow up. Stop giving his crap before he's even started the job.
It's a simple idea - let's see what he can do for us before slating him.
