      He did the interview with NOTW FFS.

      I've already stated in the last but one post that he's lost a lot of respect from myself for doing that interview. What i won't do is mask Rafa's inadequacies as a people person. Yes, i accept Yossi is at fault for doing the interview with that Scumrag, but i defend his right to air his grievances about how Rafa treated him, though he could have done it with a little more subtlety.

      Rafa was on holiday from late May. The transfer window opened on 1st June.

      Theoretically, it's not a certainty that it was tied up.

      I know Res. I don't know the ins and outs of transfers but i'm sure that pre-contract agreements can be signed before the transfer window opens.

      Yossi has said that Rafa told him to leave after the last training session before the Hull game. So that would have been the 7th or 8th May.

      Benitez was sacked on the 3rd June. So there was nearly a month between Rafa telling him to find a new club and Rafa being removed from his post.

      And I'll defend my right to say he's an f'n professional footballer, shouldn't need a cuddle from the boss or bloody moddy-coddling.  I take pride in my profession from doing my job well, I don't need validation from other people.  How f'n needy are these whinging b*stards?

      Oh yeah, i forgot, all people are the same aren't they?. That's why what works for one player works for all, it's so simple isn't it?. Yossi was a better player than Riera, Babel and Lucas, yet Rafa only saw him as a substitute and then asked him to leave the Club. You ask any manager, in any profession, if there is a rule of thumb to how you handle people and situations and they will all tell you that every person and situation are completely different. Rafa handled Yossi badly.

      I heard a rumour from a Chelsea mate of mine who said this was an Abramovich signing to win favour with some very heavy ex-pat Russians living in Israel.

      Might be a load of balls but I can't think of a reason why they would sign him.

      Well then Roman and his pals are gonna f**king love it if Yossi fucks up, cos Chelsea fans are f**king ruthless towards the yids, just ask Spurs everytime they play at Stamford Bridge.

      Loved the letter in the Liverpool Echo from Thursday. when one nobhead was wishing Yossi well and saying how he never ever played in his true position behind the striker. I wonder why that is?

      One difference between a normal profession and a footballer's is the public aspect. A lot of footballers DON'T court the media or look for attention. Plenty wouldn't be particularly comfortable as public figures. Yes, they get well (over) paid - but like any of us they have doubts and insecurities. Throw in a rough ride on TV or in the papers and it can rock, particularly younger guys, confidence. So I think there ARE times when 1-1 man management skills can help a player work through a difficult time, build up their confidence, and maybe even help in their development.
      Not saying though that sometimes a kick up the arse might not be a better solution. Different strokes ...

      It's his opinion and whatever he felt during his stay here, maybe only he knew. But to be fair, it was Rafa who brought him here and I think Rafa knew what he wanted to do with Yossi. But blaming Rafa was unjust. He's already at a new club, think forward and try not to live in the past. Blaming Rafa is not the answer. As much as I respected him, I hope he rot there.

      Another cheap shot at rafa,yossi has been making all the wrong noises in the press last season regarding playing time and being linked to other clubs so for him to go to chelsea im a little bit suprised for I see him playing alot of football on the bench.

      Yossi move on we have and I hope you rent boys get inter in the champions leauge so rafa can crack that big nose of yours.

      With all due respect Huyton Red, nobody really expects Rafa to play players in their natural positions. Just ask Kuyt, Babel, Yossi and Lucas ( due to the fact that the majority feel he is an attacking midfielder being forced to adopt a defensive mindset). Even Gerrard plays out of his natural position ( even though he can play anywhere ).

      Anyway, Yossi leaves with my blessing. I'll say no more on the matter as the Rafa wagon is in full motion.

      I really don't have issue with Yossi is saying because based on few other players who played with the club and what you hear about Rafa managing style he can be a real hard ass and if he doesn't want you at the club he lets it be known, just maybe in a way the players don't like but Rafa is not a players manager.

      Nothing wrong with it and to be honest most of the best manager are like that.

      Does anyone know for certain that the deal wasn't sealed before Rafa's departure?.

      Wouldn't this be like blaming Houllier for Owen leaving for Madrid.

      Hope the little tw*t goes the same way as that rat down the east lancs.

      I don't get why he had to say anything at all though. Why couldn't he just say that the chance of playing CL football this season was enough to persuade him. The deal had been done and he's at Chavski now so why bother slating Rafa off?

      Yossi at it again

      Ex-Liverpool FC attacker Yossi Benayoun enjoying training at Chelsea because they use a ball
      YOSSI BENAYOUN says the training at Chelsea is different to at Liverpool – in that they use a ball.

      Benayoun has started training with his new club following his £6million summer move from Anfield.

      Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins said: “Yossi is doing well.

      "He has said the pre-season training here is so different to what they did at Liverpool where they didn’t use a ball.

      “They ran and they ran and they ran.

      "But here we use the ball all the time and we feel we get the best out of the guys by using the ball day-in, day-out.

      "I think Yossi is quite enjoying himself.”
