Time to support Rafa


This is the first time that I have posted on this site, but enough is enough.

Rafael Benitez Maudes is the new Chelsea manager, and we should welcome him.

Of course we shouldn't forget those few years while he had his feud with Mourinho. But remember, it was Mourinho who started the feud, after Rafa had beaten him time and time again in the Champions league.

For those of you who say that RDM is a better manager, I can't believe you actually think that. Let's put it simply.

Rafa has been a manager for over 20 years, compared to RDM's 4 years.

Prior to Chelsea, Rafa had managed at Real Madrid youth, Valencia, Liverpool, Inter etc - RDM had managed MK Dons and West Brom.

Yes Rafa got fired from Inter - but RDM was fired from West Brom!

Rafa has won more, done more and achieved more than RDM. Maybe RDM will reach those heights in the future - but not now.

Yes he looks like a fat Spanish waiter, and yes he has a stupid beard - but he is known and respected as one of the greatest football minds of his generation. He is the only guy out there who will give us a chance in the World Club cup (which whatever people say is a HUGE trophy), and if Shaktar decides to be nice to us, he will be excellent for us in the Champions league.

So stop the Rafa hate. We are Chelsea fans - it is the Club we love, not the players, not the managers and not the owners.

See you at the Bridge on Sunday - I for one will be singing Rafa's name.
