The reason I am asking the question today is because of the "stick" I am taking on here about my view on Benitez. I will make it clear to anyone reading this that has never read the blog. I don't want him here, never wanted him here and all I care about is the Football Club.

I would like to encourage you to read the whole post and the previous posts linked within this one, to see the evidence of my argument.

Now, putting aside my personal feeling towards Benitez, I have written an argument against Benitez purely based on his performance as Chelsea manager back on 26th February. In that detailed post, I explained the decisions he had made based on his team selection or subsequent substitutions in games that Chelsea had dropped points in the Premier League, the two legs of the League Cup semi final against Swansea, the Europa League and FA Cup against Brentford.

(**I would like to point out that since then, another classic example was Southampton away a couple of weeks ago!**)

Without question, our form under Benitez has been up and down and I challenge anyone else to tell me otherwise. Outstanding one minute, mediocre the next - Jekyll and Hyde if you will!

Now Chelsea Football Club find themselves in a battle to qualify for the Champions League next season and like I have pointed out in those games, we should never be in this position!. We have dropped a total of 23 points in Premier League games when we should never have done with Rafa in charge. In some of those games the players are to blame as much as the manager but the buck stops with him.

We have world class players here at the club and to lose that amount of points is scandalous!.

Now before people say it, I understand the pressure on the players playing every three or four days constantly for the past few months. It has caused problems and we have had to rotate the team for certain games. If anything that has made us all realise that the squad isn't as strong as we thought.

My personal opinion is that the games shouldn't be a problem to play for these "professional" players. Think about it, if someone was to ask you to swap what you do for a living and tells you that you have to play football three times a week for 90 minutes and train for only two hours a day - would that be a problem for you? Tiredness is no issue, I'm sorry but it's bull if you ask me!

Anyway back to the point of this post...

In light of our performance in the FA Cup, Europa League and the fact that we are back up to third in the Premier League, I still believe as I posted here that for Rafa Benitez himself, he would see those cup competitions as the priority personally for him no matter what anyone says!

Think about it. He knows he is leaving at the end of the season regardless so if he finishes in the top four or not means little to him and his career. It's the trophies he has always talked about that would be welcome additions to his CV that would stand out to future employers. I'm sorry but I cannot see how anyone would think any different!

Then there was his rant at the Chelsea Supporters and the Chelsea Board which as far as most of us were concerned, was the beginning of the end for him. The only reason he is still here is because the board couldn't afford to sack him so close to the end of the season..

Those are the reasons that I have the feeling I have towards Rafa. I had a view on him before he was here and based on his performance as Chelsea manager, it's gotten worse.

So I am asking you the Chelsea fans reading this all over the world and the ones that follow Chelsea up and down the country week in, week out - Am I being too hard on Benitez?

Carefree & KTBFFH!

  1. No one give a damn about what you think about about benitez. What I know is that he is a top coach. The same benitez that prevents your beloved mourinho from getting to the CL final twice when he was at liverpool. You think you know about football, try be a manager. IDIOT

  2. Totally agree with this post! Look at the position chelsea were in before he took over and look now!! His team selection makes no sense, playing Yossi and leaving marin on the bench?? Playing Bertrand on the left and leaving oscar moses on the bench also makes no sense!! It would be best if he just left!!

  3. Fuckof outof dis site loserpool,wats ur biz here, concernin d way,nd manner we want 2 talk bout benitez,benitez is a dummy period

  4. For your info loser, I'm a chelsea fan(that understands football) that love chelsea so much that I would never boo my manager or player on the football pitch no matter what. Imagine some stupid fan booing azpilicueta after the own goal against sunderland. Instead of us to prove that We are not a plastic club with plastic fans we're actually behaving like one. I'm sure if not for the boos when benitez was appointed as manager we'll be in the top two now.
