239 Of course, unless you somehow think that back to back CLs was likely? You know how many clubs have managed that? As it is hopefully we have improved our league position, won the 'best of the rest' Euro cup and set a record for different Euro trophies that no other brit team has managed. I'd call that a successfull season, yes? What do you want, sprinkles on top as well?
A European Final is more than Mourinho managed at Chelsea!!!THe Chelski fans will not realise what a good Manager Benitez is until he's gone.
Rafa & Juan Mata are the only good things about Chelsea. Everyone else is a maggot. Terry, Lumplard, Cashley, that keeper with the dumb hat, the horrid owner & scumbag fans. Maggots.
So the Europa final & POSSIBLY 3rd place in the league is suddenly a success for last season's CL winners?We've lost all three finals so far this season & passed through the CL without so much as a whisper. Thrashed by City in the Community Shield, thrashed by Athletico in the Super Cup, embarrassed by Corinthians in the CWC! Now in the final of the 2nd class CL and we'll likely lose that too!
233 Start thinking mate, every manager in Gods creation has lost more trophies than he has won. The fact that his win percentage is lower than most Chelsea managers is down to the age transition. No other manager, save maybe Mourinho, would have done any better,Good manager, done well for us.
I'm surprised anyone would want the Chelsea job, when you look at how previous managers have been treated The fans don't know how lucky they are getting Benitez, who is doing a professional job in very difficult circumstances. The club needs stability, however I'm not sure if this is possible with a very disruptive owner.
Rafas a good manager. Dont think that has been in doubt. As a chelsea fan i wouldnt say i welcomed him with open arms but bear with him and i gave him a chance. Hes done well in the circumstances and i wish him luck for the future. His appointment was wrong but hey ho hes entitled to his points of view and hasnt repeated them sinse being at chelsea. Odd that
#234After *Rafa leaves what if the ' worse ' situation occurs; a period of managerial snubbing of the Club that equals the lengths of *AVB's stay at least, plus the approx length that *Rafa took heavy barrage?The Caretaker manager (usually a Head coach) would be forced into the role via the Rulings, so surely that would mean the Oligarch's little PlayScheme would swifty run into jeopardy?
Aren't ALL Chelski managers interim ?
Take a step back dude.His Chelsea win% is only better than AVB in Roman era and he has lost more trophies than what he has won.
Benitez is a good manager who deserves credit. He used Liverpool cash and won them the CL & 2nd in the PL, getting sacked after only one average season. Then Inter Milan where he got sacked after the club gave him no money to improve the side. After he got the priviledge of managing chelsea where he improved them from SIXTH to hopefully top four, got them two major'ish up finals.Good Manager.
Benitez is a good manager who deserves credit. He used Liverpool cash, producing nothing, getting sacked with compensation, only to go to Inter Milan, where he got sacked, getting compensation for the privilege to move to Chelsea and get them to the bring out of top four, with Mata, Hazard, Oscar in the team. Some good manager.
