Thoughts on Chelsea vs West Brom, and reception for Benitez

Hello everyone!. Well another match day is upon us and I wanted to gauge the feeling of as many Chelsea supporters as possible ahead of this one about the game itself and of course the reaction to Rafa Benitez within the stands?Once again, Rafa Benitez...

Middlesbrough v Chelsea - FA Cup Fifth Round

Yet another match day with Chelsea involved is upon us, and I wanted to gauge the feeling of as many Chelsea supporters as possible ahead of this one about the game itself, and of course the reaction to Rafa Benitez within the stands.

Once again, Rafa Benitez refused to apologise to the Chelsea fans for his “rant” the other day, but mainly backtracked on what he has said to turn it into a call for unity. It was another example of how Benitez has avoided apologising to Chelsea fans, after having not apologised for saying the below previously:

The problem is that he claims that the supporters are not behind the team. Chelsea fans support the team and players all over the country and in this case the world. We may sing our songs about Benitez, but at the same time, we are 100% behind the players, and each and every single player knows it.

You ask John Terry, Frank Lampard, Juan Mata, Ashley Cole and the others if they feel that the Chelsea supporters do not support them, do not get behind them and have disrupted them, and you will get a different answer, I can assure you.

If you thought Benitez received a bad reception in his first game in charge against Manchester City at the Bridge,  I have a feeling this will be ten times worse this afternoon, and unfortunately he only has himself to blame. It was a pre-planned “Liverpool-like” attack on the supporters and the board, and now he has his tail between his legs.

Focusing back on the football, I AM feeling confident today that we can get the job done and claim an all-important three points to put us back above Tottenham into third.

Of course, it’s never a foregone conclusion, but surely we have the quality to get the right result, in addition to the fact that we are at home.

If we don’t, then God help us!
