I dont support this. A bad patch can always happen with any team. I can bet you my dear Chelsea would worsen with Benitez.

Benitez wasn't fantastic at Liverpool, he's disliked by Chelsea fans, he can only last if he performs by winning one or two trophies, Guardiola etc are waiting. gbenga

I have no choice but to respect the clubs decision to hire another manager. With all due respect RDM did very well for Chelsea. He is indeed a legend , but to be sincere we need a more tactical coach, a coach that is more flexible with his tactics. RDM has maintain just one formation since he took charge at the club which is just the 4-2-3-1 . All he does is just to change personalities , with same tactics. Which is not good for a top club. We need a top manager with lots of experience at the highest level. As for Rafa, I'll support him for now,but Chelsea must try and get Pep Guadiola. .. #trueblue writing from Stamford bridge.

Crap coach with crap tactics. Torres will be happy though.

Yes Rafa may have all the experience but one thing no manager gets at Stamford bridge is ... time.

Once a scouser would definitely be a scouser 4rever, Rafa Banitez is a jack ass coach that mostly hated by Chelsea fans due to his manner of approaching players and his ranting that i could still remember against Chelsea "We don’t need to give away stupid plastic flags to our fans to wave, our supporters are always there with their hearts and that is all we need. It’s the passion of the fans that helps us to win matches, not flags. Chelsea fans lack passion."

Torres is already a failure at SB, now jack ass coach again

Yes I do. Let's see what he can achieve with our $50mil Torres Investment since he onced coached him at Anfield.

Nope. I'm suspending my allegiance to CFC till further notice. Hez so not worth being a CFC coah

KOFOSHY said...

Till the end of the season..yeah,he's not bad,sure he will resurrect f9 Torres.

kendra said...

He shouldn't have sacked the last coach cos he helped chelsea win the champions league last season and other cups.. So for him to slack a little didn't mean he should be sacked.. He should have been given a second chance besides see arsene wenger has been with arsenal for so long and the owner hasn't tot of sacking him cos he knows arsene wenger is good for arsenla even if they haven't won anything in a while

BREAKING NEWS: Rafael Benitez has been sacked as Chelsea manager for failing to win anything since taking over last night.

WSS™ said...

& lol @ "...The owner and the Board believe that bla bla bla...".
Which board? The chalkboard I guess; because we all know Chelsea's board of directors is nominal. The owner calls the shots everytime & anytime! Who's fooling who?

Nope!!! Abramovich needs to understand, its not the coach that is the problem...Torres on the other hand is the WORST buy ever. Abramovich will not accept that fact! #Ewu Russia

Yeah, Benitez can do the Job but its unfortunate that RDM had to leave the way he did.

Error plus counter error equals total failure. I think dis is d second biggest mistake Chelsea owmner is making after relieving the "special one" of his duties. God help Chelsea.

What else can I say as a true chelsea fan I have given up. This is going from frying pan to serious fire. God save us from high BP.

Nekky said...

a coach that ha been without a job for the past 2 years is now who will immediately deliver in Chelsea. i'm sick and tired of Roman firing and hiring coaches. its now irritating. anyways i'll sit back and watch how things can turn around. mscheeeeew

Anonymous said...

I just tire for dis our rich Roman. He's a highly impatient man and crazy about silverware(trophies). Feeling so sorry for RDM, I really liked him.

kbouy said...

chelsea is a club with an attitude problem and aggression just like its millions of fans, win at all cost syndrome, lack of planning and just reckless throwing money at anything. Rome was not build in a day it takes a lot of vision, foresight and tradition to mold a world Class Club.

Matteo can never be jobless for too long. Won CL league and FA. Chelsea recorded the first profit since abramovich bought the club under him. The guy is definitely a chelsea legend. Right time to leave. Officially, I end my 10 years chelsea support

How long will he last? Every Chelsea Manager is an interim Manager. I can't see Guardiola wanting to go to such an unstable club with a trigger happy owner. Benitez is ruthless so the likes of Terry, Lampard etc should be very afraid. Torres will be happy. I read one of the reasons he was hired is because of Torres.

i don't approve. this changing of managers is annoying for me as a chelsea fan. i just can't. i think i'm channeling my support to another team. roman just stop!!!
