Benitez Quite Positive After Chelsea Defeat – Didn’t Speak To Ashley

It turns out that even though Mike Ashley decided to attend yesterday’s game at Stamford Bridge he didn’t talk to Rafa Benitez either before or after the game.

We don’t know if the owner made an effort to see Rafa who is always busy doing interviews after every game.



We are hoping that with Newcastle now in dire relegation trouble Ashley will give Rafa some help in this month’s transfer window.



But we are not holding our breath on that – as history is our guide.

Rafa seemed pleased with the performance yesterday if not the result, as he said this after the game as reported in the Chronicle: “I think from the beginning of the season we know that we can get close, but that’s not enough.” “Hopefully, everybody can see the effort is there and the players are trying their best.” “We are trying our best but still it is not enough in some games.” “In games against the top sides we made the difference.” “But still we were are close each time.” “I was talking with Lee Charnley before the game, I have not seen Mike after.” “I knew that he was here.” “It showed the players care, the team effort was there, the understanding was there and the game plan was there.” “We had chances from corners and we were there.” “They started the second half pushing and I was expecting that.” “We defended but Willian has made the difference.” “After that we kept pushing.” “Normally you get tired but we were still in the game and had to be more open and go higher.” “When you look at the names they have and quality they have it’s normal.” “Overall it is quite positive in the things we did and the way we did it.” It’s going to very important that we can beat the clubs around us fighting relegation.

That starts with Cardiff City at home next Saturday.
