Waking up this morning, I had no idea of the furore that had occurred last night.
On seeing we`d won 2-0 I slipped up to bed aware I had a busy schedule this morning.
On waking up I turned the television on and heard the outburst made by Rafa Benitez, an outburst that will surely have ramifications.
Now DJDUTTS obviously beat me to the punch on publishing an article about Rafa`s points and DJDUTTS, as is his right, agreed with some of what Rafa said, I, on the other hand, do not.
For Rafa to hide his inadequacies behind a tirade like that is unbelievable and, quite frankly, not acceptable!
Whilst still mulling over what Rafa had said, a good friend of mine - David Johnstone - gave his views on the BBC News, eloquently and accurately purveying the thoughts of many a Chelsea supporter.
In the aftermath of Rafa`s outburst, I`d like to comment on two points.
Firstly, I find it almost humorous that the very point Rafa made about Chelsea fans being passionless, when he was in charge has come back to haunt him as it appears to be the extremely passionate Chelsea travelling support that has an axe to grind with him.
Secondly, for Rafa to bemoan the fact that he was labelled as an interim manager is almost as hilarious. Is he trying to tell us that the contract translation from English to Spanish failed to pick up on this fact, or was he simply blinded by the noughts on his perceived salary and penned it at will?
Rafa, you`ve brought all this on yourself. You took up the challenge when, quite obviously, you were not up to it and any abuse you`ve since received, well that`s your fault as well.
If you thought last night was bad, then I shudder to think, now you`ve slated the true support again, what lies in store for you at Stamford Bridge this Saturday when we play West Bromwich Albion.
Is it purely co0incidental that we tend to dispatch with managers after fixtures against West Brom?
