Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

He could have put Ba in a lot sooner. Had he put him in on 60mins, we'd have someone with a brain leading the line and we saw how many chances Ba got when he came on. The second Ivanovic mistake probably doesn't occur, as it's highly likely we would have not been chasing the game anymore.

But instead, we have to watch #9 continue to do shite, because he's tight with the manager.

Mistakes or no mistakes, Rafa did not change the game when we were running at a brick wall.

This is very true. His managing outside of matches leaves a lot to be desired as well. We've gone from having a lethal attack (minus Torres) to one with no idea what they're doing. We're playing this long ball garbage more often as well. How does that work to the advantage of Mata, Hazard and Oscar, who wouldn't even reach 6ft if they stood on each other's shoulders? It doesn't even help Torres, who can't hold up play for shit.

I'm not blaming Rafa solely for last night's result, but there is a clear trend with Chelsea's play since he took over. It is static, uncreative and without a plan B. Even when we've won games we haven't looked like a potent attacking threat. The game against Everton is a good example. We were outplayed for most of the match and if it wasn't for Lamps' clinical finishing it would have been another defeat.

It isn't entirely Benitez's fault either. Abramovich is the one who pulled the trigger far too early on RDM. I can blame the players for their individual mistakes (like Ivanovic last night), yet I can sympathise with them overall as it can't be easy having to constantly change the way you play every time we get a new manager. It's Mata's second season and he's already had three managers, all with different styles of play.

And the worst thing is I can't see things improving this season. Not unless we drop Torres for good and bring a CM in during this window.

Bingo, Rafa is physically incapable of changing a game

Takes too damn long to make subs, and sometimes his rotation policies are just damn baffling

I mean its not hard. He saw Torres was ineffective, bring in Ba so can finally start bombing in crosses and Lampard can start swinging from range instead of constantly passing into the box

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

It's easy making Torres the scapegoat, Chelsea have a lot of other players underperforming in attack.

As for Benitez, he has always been the type of manager who tactically gets it right pre game but struggles to adapt to the evolving game in front of him. Nigel Adkins is the same. Some of his substitutions this season have cost us points. At the end of the day though Rafa is a short term manager, trying to get Chelsea a top 4 finish which he should get anyway and anything else is bonus. This isn't Cheslea's year to strike big, Rafa is clearing things up for who ever gets the job next.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

I just pray for third and hope this season finishes fast. I don't even care for the FA Cup, League Cup or Europa League (initially I wanted to win this) now. I just want this to end and for the new manager to come in. But knowing those trolls on the Chelsea board, it'll probably be someone like Roman's son.

Could be worse. Roman could turn Chelsea into an all Russian side with the purpose of giving the national team a platform to play together regularly.
