Just Be Civilized!

Just Be Civilized!

Stamford Bridge will certainly be an interesting place to be this Saturday.

With Rafa fuelling the fire it`ll certainly be interesting to see the supporter`s reactions.

Already the tabloid press, whether true or not, are reporting that Chelsea intend to lay on more stewards to offer Rafa a degree of protection, although we seriously doubt (and hope) if anything other than verbal baiting will occur.

Frank Sinclair, a regular guest of Chelsea TV and a player who gave everything whilst wearing our famous shirt, has given his opinion on what may be in store for Rafa, remarking on BBC Radio,

'I don't fancy being him at the weekend. All the fans will have taken it personally and I can't see it having any positive effect."

'I can't understand it. He seems like a man at the end of his tether, maybe this could be an easy way out of it.'


All we`d ask is that the protests, if forthcoming, are kept civil, the name of our club has been on the back pages, for the wrong reason, far too often this season.

I'ts a good shout Merlin but you know you will be ignored, the vociferous minority are more interested in dissing the manager than supporting the team. How on earth they think the players will respond to that I don't know................but then they are probably incapable of thought. As a supporter for 50 years I do wish they would keep their negative thoughts to themselves during matches and just support the team.

Its obviously going to be civil,but very hostile. There are better ways to have requested for fans support,not in such an arrogant manner. he just finished his press briefing,and said 'I'm hoping the atmosphere will be great'...Yeah it will Rafa just wait and see.

If the crowd are going to be hostile , I will go to the bookies a place bet on WBA right now. Not only that .. it will no doubt book us a 5th/6th place position..and you lot can kiss CL football goodbye

The more I look at Rafa's comments the more I think he had a bit of a point. Nowadays, the frenzy around any statement that is not cliche, or standard drivel, always seems to be disproportionate to what was actually said. I got caught up in it myself! I just don't think he is very good at PR. We all dislike him being our manager, but he is there until May regardless. So it is entirely pointless now to put up banners and chant anti-Rafa songs. They achieve nothing at all, zilch, nada, zero. So I for one will simply ignore the odious little man and support my team instead. I urge every Chelsea fan to do the same and let our players know that we are in it with them! KTBFFH

I was at the Rosenberg game and I never booed that night.i didn't boo ever at the end of a match till rafa came in gave my arse a headache and blamed his dodgy tactics and team selections on the fact he was short of options really? Not the fact he got it wrong before the start

As I said in another article, sing ur lungs out that we are the champions of europe, chant di matteo's name at the 16th minute, sing super frankie lampard and all the exciting songs that makes the players filled with pride all through the game, after the final whistle, boo him all u want if he still clueless

@Des. If he makes a ***** sub like he did against Citeh,or wait till the 80th - 90th min to influence the game tactically then you might just hear fans roar! Its easy to say support the team and ignore Rafa,I'm sure a lot of fans have tried doing that...but how do you ignore a man in charge of the teams line up,subs,tactical approach e.t.c? Let me be clear,i do not boo Rafa and never have,but decades as a fan,you tend to learn and understand this game involves lots of emotions and passion (Joy,Love,hatred,and Anger). KTBFFH

@nely, I get what u are coming from, as a fan, atimes the question pops into my mind when rafa makes some senseless subs and some disgusting tactics, that I wonder if he wants us to deliberately lose, I keep rationalizing atimes if he wants us to be weaker than we are now just for liverpool to get a better shot at making top 4 this season or next, I see the sitters torres miss and I get more firmer in my believe that they are on a mission to ruin my beloved club, I mean emile heskey as old as he is will bury majority of the chances torres keeps missing and scolar/AVBi as poor as he was while he was still with us, doesn't make meaningless substitutions in the 80-90th minute, NEVER
