The Thoughts of Rafa - Norwich (a)

The Thoughts of Rafa - Norwich (a)

Following the 1-0 victory at Carrow Road, a more than decent one considering Norwich have already beaten Manchester United and Arsenal on their own patch, Rafa Benitez had a few words to say in his post-match interview.

Firstly, on the performance, Rafa had this to say,

'We knew that was a difficult pitch, they won against Manchester United and Arsenal. It was tough but I was really pleased with the performance of the players. The team are showing character. I am really pleased with the work-rate and the style of play."

Sometimes like today, as we`ve learned in our title winning seasons, you have to grind out results.

When pressed on the Lampard situation, Rafa adopted a diplomatic stance, remarking simply

'We don't talk about personal issues. That is for Frank and the club. I don't pay too much attention because we have to concentrate on the game.'

Well perhaps you are the one person that should intervene Rafa!

I'm sick of media making mush about accepting Rafa. I don't care if we win every game from now to the end of the season, he's unfit to be considered a blue.

i think de bruyene should replace lamps... we can't afford his 175 k salary (nd he's way off his best)

Great win at a tricky ground. Rafa is being political as ever, but then again I don't blame him with his tenuous relationship w/ the media. Concerning intervening w/ Frank's situation I don't see it amounting to very much - I doubt very much if he even cares if Frank goes as he is just a puppet with his strings being pulled by the very men that have created the Franky dilemma.

good win. 1-0 is enough for us in away games. 3 points is the mot important thing to care here.

Whatever the decision, Frank deserves RESPECT, both from the board & from VitalChelsea fans too !! Too many LOOSE statements being made about him methinks.

He shined against Aston Villa and some people want him to stay and remain on high wages at the expence of our young guns. There are better players with more energy and superior technical abilities to Lamps who will do better than the present Lamps. Remember he was one of the reasons we lost the Super Cup and Community shield. It is time for him to go!
