… And so, as Edenbray predicted 0n 21.02.2013 see (see ~ the TRUTH ABOUT RAFA … article), the media flies have returned to the stinking corpse that is the Chelsea career of Rafa Benitez after the apparent suicide of the latest in a long line of Chelsea ‘interim’ managers took place only minutes after one of his more memorable and momentous victories, the 5th Round 2-0 away win at Middlesbrough which in turn secured a 1/4 final trip to Old Trafford on Sunday week and potentially Chelsea’s most important game of the season thus far …

.. But no quiet, ‘Frank Pentangeli’ – Godfather II , blood-letting into a hot bath, like a deposed Roman general – suicide, for Rafa … No, no, if Rafa is going ‘down’, as most commentators of the game suspect he must now, he is taking everyone down with him … Those boys upstairs, who termed his stint an ‘interim’ post in an  effort to take some of the pressure ‘off’ Rafa during his stand-in reign … and those unreasonable hard-core fans who spend a small-fortune in cash plus hours of dedication and sacrifice while travelling to Chelsea away games for no financial remuneration at all …  This suicide, if that is what it was, was going to be a very messy affair Rafa had pre-determined, as with sharpened blade and a stiff,  flailing arm he deliberately unleashed salvo upon salvo on those who have apparently made his job soooo hard … but then Rafa DID know what he was letting himself in for, as did Gus Hiddink in his FA Cup winning visit to Stamford Bridge ; as did Avram Grant en-route to Moscow and a penalty shoot out defeat in the CL final ; as did Robbie DiMatteo while re-building Chelsea team spirit and guiding us to that Holy Grail CL success not 12 month ago in Munich … hey, all accepted the ‘interim post’ tag and their very healthy pay check with hardly a whimper …

Not Rafa Benitez! … no the ex- Liverpool manager who once made jibes about Chelsea’s ‘plastic flag fans’ and who obviously expected better of the ‘plastic flaggers’ when he joined … but then no doubt so did Roman expect more when he appointed this oh so ‘experienced’ manager who has apparently won all the major honours going at domestic level. Certainly those same hard-core fans who sang anti-Rafa songs throughout the Middlesbrough win had a right to expect more and to be honest, so far, Rafa has not delivered! – F.a.c.t.

Had Rafa showed a little more humility and respect for the European Champions when he joined and had he accepted that the fans had a right to moan and made a plea for their support he might just have won them over. This rant has signalled the end of Rafa at Stamford Bridge but the club say they do not plan to replace him or ban anti-Rafa banners at Saturdays West Brom game.

Perhaps one important thing may be won by the club this season :-  A MUTUAL respect by the club for their true blue fans and in return a respect by the fans for Mr Abramovich and what he is trying to achieve … Now that would be a result! …
