Chelsea

Week In Pictures – Hands up if you’re better than Rafa

benitez.jpgLast night saw not only a brilliant goal by Gareth Bale but also Spurs leapfrogging Chelsea into third place. Obviously this will have pleased former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas no end but more and more discontent is growing at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea of course sacked fan favourite and Champions League winning manager Roberto Di Matteo this season and succeeded him with Rafael Benitez. Never one to shy away from his opinions during his time in the managerial hotseat at Liverpool, Benitez managed not only to annoy Chelsea fans but also their players and managers. Cue rumours of a dressing room bust up and dissenting fans cries airing around like never before at the Bridge – and given the managerial merry-go-round Blues fans have to put up with, that is saying something.

Now with Chelsea in danger of dropping out of the top four and being overtaken by a club led by the man they ridiculed and sacked last year, the club are not happy at all. It comes as no shock then that we at the tavern found the picture below hilarious. Benitez was asked to get Chelsea into the knockout stages in Europe and failed. He was tasked with beating Swansea City in the Capital One Cup semi-final and failed. He also lost the Club World Cup and will probably try his best to balls up the Blues Europa League run. Even our landlord quips that him and Fernando Torres are pretty good double agents and this picture below is for all the Chelsea fans out there.
